CLIMATE DESTABILIZATION

VIDEO & DISCUSSION NIGHT

We are at a crossroads in our history. We are on the precipice of destroying our habitat, the very earth that gives us sustenance and supports life. Our multiple challenges of climate change, deforestation, overgrazing, fisheries collapse, food insecurity, and the rapid extinction of species are all part of a single, over-arching problem: Humanity has overshot the carrying capacity of the Earth.

Join with others willing to honestly face our situation and have the most important discussion of our lives: how we pull out of our ecological nosedive and transition to a life-affirming global culture, an earth community of sustainability, justice, and peace!

We show a different video each session and discuss a range of important issues and options to address them. For detailed information on each session, see https://betseydowning.com/upcoming-events/ . Information will be posted 5-6 days prior to the event.

In these sessions we focus on creating resilience, both individually and in community. It includes personal practices such as deep breathing and meditation to calm and center ourselves, as well as actions we can take in our communities to adapt to the coming changes brought on by climate destabilization. Bring your comments, questions, ideas, and friends! Free! Open to all!  Presented by the Citizens Climate Collaborative: Betsey Downing, Tana Hartman Thorn, Dirk Kelder, and Jim Sander.

Live Kirtan with Samadhi

Samadhi is a soulful kirtan band based in North Carolina. Although the term kirtan is originally from India, we celebrate traditions from around the world that foster community gatherings centered around devotional call and response singing. Kirtan transforms the spirit, bringing us together, unifying our hearts and voices, sharing in the spirit. Because kirtan requires participation, WE NEED YOU! Our music is as diverse as our band, and with influences that include jazz, gospel, indie, rock n’roll, and soul, our chants range from moments of sweet intimacy to resounding expressions of the heart. Our members include Krishna Nama, Prema, Rangadevi, Steve, Kat, Julian, Courtney & Vikram.
