Workshop Overview

"Grief is like water: we can drown in it, but we can also drink from it and be strengthened and nourished by it." - Starhawk, The Earthpath

This workshop will offer embodied practices, asana (postural yoga), personal expressions through art, writing, and other modalities, and ceremony to support a collective processing of grief we may be holding related to our human-caused climate emergency. You will also receive tools to support the tending of your ongoing relationship to climate change. While we certainly need system-level solutions, we also must practice those relationship shifts internally and in beloved community.

About the Instructor(s)

Kate Skaggs (she/her/they/them) is a practitioner in the climate resilience field. A curiosity of the inner and outer landscapes, and how these are in conversation with daily life, gently pulled them into practicing yoga 13 years ago; Eventually leading to a climate resilience approach shaped by the philosophy and values of yoga. Kate hopes to hold space for others to be in similar close-in consultations with themselves and others. They are actively, humbly, working to dismantle internalized implicit biases but know they will make mistakes; accountability and integrity matter and they are working to grow those skills especially when the impact of their words or actions cause harm. Kate graduated from the Bhakti Yoga Movement Center's Yoga Teacher Training in 2019.

Danielle Jones (she/her) is a weaver of yoga, anti-racist and Earth-based practices. Working as a facilitator and sustainability educator she finds that breath, meditation and asana are important avenues to help regulate our body systems, and to reimagine relationships that center equity and healing. Danielle is a graduate of the Bhakti Yoga Movement Center’s Yoga Teacher Training (2019), Leadership for Sustainability M.S. program (2018), and Center for Diversity & the Environment’s Emerging Leaders program (2017).
