Living, Working and Finding Meaning in this time of Ecological Crisis

Workshop over 2 half-days

Presented by Merle Conyer

The Ecological Crisis

Climate change and ecological breakdown are considered among the greatest threats to our personal, societal and planetary wellbeing. In Australia, the sheer scale of devastation wrought by extended drought, catastrophic bushfires and the corona pandemic has moved this threat out of a ‘what will be’ context into a much more terrifying ‘what is’.  This can provoke anxiety, grief and despair and raise questions about who we are in our world and how we may need to respond and change. These times call on us to confront existential concerns, acknowledge collective responsibility and reshape generative ways of living and finding meaning. 

Workshop Overview

This workshop will offer you an opportunity to explore the continuum of eco-anxiety and future dread and ways of finding resiliency, agency and hope in these unsettling times. It will also address wide-ranging implications for therapeutic practice.
