10 Steps to Resilience & Empowerment in a Chaotic Climate
A peer-to-peer support group for people overwhelmed by eco-anxiety, climate grief, and other experiences of eco-distress
Our unique 10-Step Program helps individuals and communities build resilience by creating spaces where people can lean into their painful feelings about the state of the world and reorient their lives toward meaningful action.
Important Notes About Trainings:
FLOW Facilitation Training is an intensive, 12-week training for individuals who seek to become a Certified GGN FLOW Facilitator. FLOW Facilitators can facilitate independently within their own communities, or apply to work with GGN as a 10-Step Program facilitator.
As seen in…
Heart-Centered Processing in Small Groups
Being part of the caring, articulate community that GGN creates is wonderful; it really did help mitigate feelings of isolation, helplessness, etc.
I thought the facilitators did a beautiful job. They showed up with their full hearts and vulnerability. You could tell they deeply care about this work. And they held the boundaries well…
It was a testament to the facilitators that everyone felt comfortable really opening up.
Good Grief Network has helped me metabolize a build-up of climate grief that was leading to burn out and downshifting. Participating in the Good Grief Network is helping me continue my climate activism with more balance, resilience, and presence.
Utterly worth the hard work.
The 10-Steps left me with a greater understanding of myself as well as questions about myself that I will continue to work with. I also gained an understanding of the intersection between personal and planetary resilience and a sense of hope that this community can create the new paradigm.
I think the connection aspect of the group and non-judgmental space that is held in the group for people to openly say how they feel and be able to learn and grow from other perspectives is an incredibly useful tool. I am so glad to have found this group!
I think the framing of the entire program, as well as the weekly insights that guide our development along the journey are rich and important. I will return to them.
Process Heavy Emotions
We believe that certain creative and emergent ideas only become available once we’ve regulated our nervous systems and talked about our painful emotions such as fear, anger, climate anxiety, and eco-grief.
Deconstruct Cultural Narratives
With the support of community, we, who have have been socialized by the dominant culture, do the work of looking at our varying levels of privilege, while undoing our cultural conditioning. When we acknowledge how we have perpetuated systems of oppression, we can stop participating in those systems and refuse to let them live within us.
