Redefining Hope In The Face Of Climate Trauma And Climate Grief

March 20, 2017

Carolyn and author, climate activist, and ecopsychologist Zhiwa Woodbury discuss the formation of trauma and its manifestations in climate chaos as well as all of the emotions that are stirred as we face the withering of our planet, especially grief. As we become willing to face these realities, we must redefine hope, not as a passive stance of mindlessly waiting for someone or something to fix the predicament, but responding with action, community, passion, a willingness to bear witness to suffering and make life easier for all living beings. In the process, we embrace a different kind of hope that does not depend on outcome but rather on our commitment to be fully engaged.
