The Climate Course is an online learning journey that explores the interior dimensions of people’s engagement with climate change (e.g., their worldviews, emotions, mindsets), including those of change-makers themselves, while expanding and empowering them. The program integrates theory, practice, and application; creates a community of transformative change agents; and opens up inner and outer horizons.
Research in psychology and worldviews helps us understand not only what people believe about climate change but why they believe it, and how they see themselves as agents of change or not. Understanding this helps us navigate values-based conflicts and design solutions that speak to the motivations of different communities.
Additionally, engaging with our own psycho-social and spiritual development and transformation helps us show up in fuller ways, and supports us to work with emotions of grief, anger, and denial as doorways. This can deepen our impact, awaken us to generative futures for all of life, and open us to new ways of approaching change work.
This program includes contributions from experienced climate change agents who integrate interior development in their work. The program also includes embodiment and awareness practices, collaborative learning and inquiry, and theory and powerful content. Although this program is focused on climate change, change-makers in any field are likely to benefit from these insights!
