Climate Grief Circles

In November 2023, we began offering monthly online climate grief circles to provide a space for GreenFaith volunteer leaders and staff to connect with others and honor grief – in all its forms – that arise around ongoing climate and ecological crises. 

Climate grief can present itself in myriad ways: fear, rage, sorrow, numbness, and more. As we continue to witness and experience the effects of climate chaos, it’s important to not only acknowledge and hold space for difficult emotions but also to remember that, as people of faith and spirit, we are connected to something greater than ourselves — be it God, Allah, Spirit, the Earth itself, and of course the beloved community.

This faith is what will carry us through tumultuous times.

In this intimate virtual circle, we witness our individual and collective grief and discover new ways of living and being in relationship to our beautiful planet. Together, we root in our unique faiths and cultivate collective resilience and hope – and remain ever committed to taking action.

The best way to stay updated about these circles right now is to sign up for our newsletter.
