Connect in Place: Relationships for resilience

November 17, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Drawing of people connecting online

Christina deVillier hosts this virtual conversation on Tuesday, November 17 from 5-6:30 pm. In a time of intensifying social and ecological crises and a cultural context of individualism, the pressure to practice “self-care,” build “personal resilience,” and “transform oneself” is pervasive. While “doing your own work” is important, we overemphasize the individual to the detriment of our human communities and the rest of the living world. The deep transformations we need will be cocreated, and the deep resilience we must develop will be relational. In this conversation, we will explore the dynamics of our strongest relationships, seeking to name the qualities and practices that underpin resilience. How can we bring our insights more intentionally and broadly to bear, both in our human relationships and in our relationships with our home—lands, waters, and ecosystems? Register  here.
