Join us for a discussion around the ways we may grieve a landscape similarly (and differently) to other forms of loss.
This workshop will begin with opening remarks from Lori Brave Rock. Lori will begin the conversation with reflections on ecological grief within the context of her work as an Indigenous environmental activist.
Following remarks from Lori Brave Rock, Amy Spark will lead the group in an exploration of the various facets of ecological grief including the complexities that come with grief in a resource-extraction province. The session will include a “101” introduction to this topic, as well as a deeper discussion on the ways in which environmental and ecological grief can become messages of hope and experiences of empowerment. Jodi Lammiman will then lead participants in a meditation. Learn more about Jodi and Amy here.
