In this online reading group, participants will explore the prescient themes woven into Jem Bendell and Rupert Read's edited book Deep Adaptation: Navigating the Realities of Climate Chaos. The group begins on October 17 with a Zoom orientation, followed by meetings on the weekends of October 30-31, November 13-14, November 27-28 to discuss sections of the book and on the weekend of December 11-12 to wrap the group up. Registration is by donation. Fifteen percent of the revenue will be donated to the Deep Adaptation Forum to support their various initiatives and activities. Follow this link to learn more about the reading group and to register.

Some background on me, for those who do not know me: I joined DAF back in March of 2019 after reading Jem's original paper (which is a chapter in his and Rupert's book). I have had various volunteer roles in the couple years since, and have facilitated a few related reading groups over the past year (on Pablo Servigne and Raphaël Stevens' How Everything Can Collapse, Octavia Butler's Parable of the Sower, and most recently Robin Wall Kimmerer's beautiful book Braiding Sweetgrass). I have received a lot of positive feedback on these groups. You can find their testimonials on my website.

  • I wish this offering had come up two months ago when I had recently read the book. Now there has been too much intervening material and too much queued up for my attention to backtrack, and I've integrated the substance of the book so thoroughly that an 8-week time frame feels like a lot of calendar time to commit. But congratulations in advance on this worthwhile offering, and I hope your participants are supported in their journey. 

    • Thanks Susan! Sad that this group does not fit better into your calendar, but I am glad you had a chance to read the book and integrate.
