SPEAK YOUR TRUTH. CHANGE THE WORLD. When planet earth thrives we thrive too!
When life delivers us hard moments, we cHard times call for Do you feel overwhelmed and anxious about climate change and what it means for future generations? Do you feel powerless to fix it? Your feelings are justified and you are not alone!
97% of earth’s eco-systems have been altered by human impact (Smithsonian Magazine, April 2021).
64% of humans the world over suffer from eco-anxiety (UN People's Climate Vote, Jan 2021).
In the United States alone, 57% of teens feel scared about climate change and 52% are downright angry (Washington Post-Kaiser Family Foundation Poll).
What if there were a way to transform your anxiety into action? Think of how much energy could be redirected toward healing our planet and creating a world where all can thrive.
What if your own efforts to thrive could create a ripple effect for others to thrive too?

What is Regenerative Activism?
Activism tends to conjure images of beating the pavement with a sign and megaphone in hand surrounded by masses of people passionate about a cause. While this kind of activism certainly has its place in response to the climate crisis, it can put the activist on a course collision with burnout and repel others to join in when competing priorities vie for attention.
Regenerative Activism, a term born out of the Extinction Rebellion Movement, is rooted in mindfulness and restoration. It calls upon and empowers the activist to initiate systemic change by starting at home first...within one's own body, mind and heart. From there, activism expands in concentric circles to impact one's family, community and ultimately, the world at large. It is rooted in deep caring and is restorative and life giving in nature.
