10 Steps to Resilience & Empowerment in a Chaotic Climate

A peer-to-peer support group for people overwhelmed by eco-distress and collective trauma from social and ecological injustices

This transformative program for processing eco-anxiety and climate grief has been 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.

10-Step Process

Process Heavy Emotions

We believe that healing occurs as we build emotional intelligence, learn about our nervous systems, and cultivate spaces to name and explore our painful emotions such as fear, anger, and grief. This process opens space for new ideas and renewed energy to emerge.

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.

Build Resilient Communities

We help cultivate resilient individuals who build community in their own localities by holding digital and physical spaces where people can gather together and practice deep listening, vulnerability, accountability, and mutual care.
