For people who are learning to live from the perspective of Deep Adaptation, to gather in community and reflect together. This will be a space where you can share your feelings and lived experiences in dealing with potential, probable, or inevitable collapse of ecosystems and societies, without self-censoring. Speaking and listening from the heart, we will create community, solidarity, and wisdom for this challenging journey.
Come to any or all of 3 circles, Thursdays Jan 28/Feb25/March25 2021. 90 minutes, 10:30am PST, 7:30pm CEST. Check your start time here: https://everytimezone.com/s/96381173
Important note: please come ready to give your full attention to the Circle. This process is not compatible with
multi-tasking, coming late or leaving early. Please turn on your camera if your internet signal allows.
We gather in a (virtual) Circle, which allows for meaningful sharing and the power of being heard, as well as learning from others as they speak. Our Circle format is based on the Way of Council, an ancient/modern practice for connection and wisdom.
The four intentions of Council are:
Speak from the heart.
Listen from the heart.
Be lean of speech.
Be spontaneous.
We practice the Deep Adaptation values of compassion, curiosity, and respect.
We are inspired by the 4 R’s of Deep Adaptation:
Resilience: What do we most value that we want to keep and how?
Relinquishment: What could we let go of so as not to make matters worse?
Restoration: What could we bring back to help us with these difficult times?
Reconciliation: With what and whom shall we make peace as we awaken to our mutual mortality?

**If you are currently in acute crisis emotionally or psychologically, this session is not appropriate. In case you are feeling overwhelmed, or think that you might be at risk because of these emotions, here is a resource that may help you cope better in the moment. And here is a link to other sources of emotional support, from Jem Bendell’s website.
This event is hosted by “DA Facilitators” (www.deepadaptation.info/contact/facilitation), a group of facilitators, space-holders and trainers, supported by the DAF Core Team, who lovingly volunteer their time and expertise to support the wider DA community. This event is offered in the spirit of 'dana' - the Buddhist practice of giving. If you wish to support the Deep Adaptation Forum, you can do so here: https://www.patreon.com/deepadaptation.
