Workshops ~ Events ~ Immersions

Eco Courageous events move us together towards some of the scariest parts of our changing homes, holding humor and healing and honest engagements with our transforming relationships with Earth.

We explore common concerns, hold space for deep and difficult experiences as well as celebration and gratitude, encourage embodiedness and embeddedness, welcome diversities of perspective and multiple kinds of knowing, and we honor the magic and potency of our radically uncertain times.

UPCOMING OFFERINGS:
(Previous Events Below >>)

  • A VOID DANCE ~ Approaching Climate Collapse Beyond the Privileged Paradigms of Urgency or Safety, Efficacy or "It's F'd" -- at the Confluence of Despair and Self Care, Paralysis and Paradox (FEB 7, 2019 at the CIIS in SF, details forthcoming)

    Whose stories are dancing dread for you? Whose choices inspire a believably live-able future? Whose urgency impacts whose agency? Among our upcoming sacrifices may lie strewn some folks' most cherished myths ~ that things stay stable, get better, continue at all. Can we become accustomed to breathing through bioreavement like smoke from nearby fires? Will we plant seeds in solastalgiac soils if we expect hopeless harvests? How are your transformations unfurling? How many deep changes have you come thru already? Where's your home headed? Oh, here comes the next wave ~ let's learn to swim through together! Drawing from the work of adrienne maree brown, Audre Lorde, Donna Haraway, and Joanna Macy, setting space for community strategy and skill sharing, Joshua Halpern will invite an embodied and embedded engagement through some of what we may hold or let go, end or begin.

  • 2019 Watershed Witness Tours - Mokelumne and Tuolumne Rivers:

    May 11th 2019 Hetch Hetchy Tour/June 7th 2019 Mokelumne Tour

    East Bay and SF water starts its journey in the Sierras and collects at several reservoirs on its way across the sinking flatlands and - for now - our taps. Spending the day tracing the route from Ocean to Bay to Tap to Meandering Stream to Precious Reservoir to Thunderous Mountain to Trickling Spring, arriving before dark at a gorgeous campground along the headwaters at 5000 feet above sea level. While with the river we will listen, learn, share, sing, splash, spend time in groups and solo, and then slowly flow back out to the Bay the next day.

How to be in cahoots with your internal flora, your trillion-strong gut microbiome.
How to be in cahoots with your external organs, your rainforest lungs and river veins.

(Being Nests)
from our Guts to our Gardens to our Galaxies

Our bodies (our homes) are made up of (and nested within) other bodies. We include tiny teeming epigenetic and microbiotic tummy mates, rely on our nearby neighbors to transform human-scale homescapes together, and map the ongoing long seasons of our star shed's Laniakean kinships. Our allies are abundant. IMAGE CREDITS BELOW
