Free Zoom May 31st: How to deal with climate change anxiety or anger from a non-scientific perspective

Climate change anxiety or anger are emotional states held by much of the population. But sometimes, a non-scientific approach can make these things better.

May 12.2022 update: We are approaching 3,500 sign-ups for this May 31st FREE Zoom gathering and event! (It was just rescheduled from May 10th to May 31st.)

Job One for Humanity, an educational nonprofit climate change think tank, is once again co-sponsoring a FREE zoom gathering to help its members, visitors, and friends deal with climate anxiety and anger. (More about us at the bottom of the page.)

And, as part of our Zoom gathering co-sponsorship, Job One is also going to offer a $50 gift to anyone who signs up and attends this free zoom call gathering or watches the free post-event Zoom call video.

You can click here and see the 5 fantastic climate-related ebooks you can choose from and download. Then come back to this event registration and details page. This page will also give you additional information about the other great gift included in the $50 gift package!

Transforming Climate Anxiety into Empowerment

A powerful and unlikely teacher has arrived, sweeping everyone into the shadows of its cloak. This teacher has begun to interrupt life as we know it, showing us the impermanence and fragility of our lifestyle and our way of seeing the world. This teacher goes by the name of Climate Change.
We invite you to join us in imagining a new future together. Join in this special gathering to discover your authentic place in the world and prepare to offer your soul-level purpose as a gift of service to life in this time.

Join Joanna Macy Author of Active Hope and Jonathan Gustin Founder of Purpose Guides Institute

for a LIVE, FREE* Video-Zoom gathering on

Tuesday, May 31st, 2022

12pm - 2pm PDT (3-5pm EDT)

Working together, we can awaken the human soul to meet climate change.
Working together, we can use our "dark-adjusted eyes" to see climate change as a spiritual calling from soul.
Can't make it? Register for free and receive the recording.

Six maxims we will explore in council:

  1. Work hard to grasp the immensity of the change;
  2. cultivate radical hope;
  3. have a line in the sand;
  4. appreciate the astonishing opportunity of life at this time;
  5. train your body and mind;
  6. and act for the future generations of all species.

The climate crisis is an initiatory threshold for humanity.

As the Great Climate Disruption gets underway, it brings us right to the razor's edge of this precious present moment. No past. No future. Just what is here now. An event such as Climate Change, alongside the overshooting of the carrying capacity of the Earth and the loss of biodiversity, has the potential to kill countless millions worldwide. It also has the potential to be a spiritual initiator for the evolution of humanity. 
How so?
In our day-to-day lives, we can easily fall asleep into a homeostatic trance that preserves the status quo and woefully inhibits our evolution. A personal or collective crisis has the potential to awaken us from such slumber.
A personal crisis has the power to thwart our daily routine. Cancer, job loss, divorce, or loss of a loved one can crack the shell of ingrained habits and initiate us into a journey of self-discovery.
A collective crisis has the potential to wake up the masses. The Great Climate Disruption serves as a potential species-wide initiatory event. When we recognize the possibility that Climate Change may kill millions, it can activate dormant intelligences, bringing into consciousness such powerful spiritual inquiries as:
Who am I? What am I to do? What is my purpose, place, destiny? What if we could live in a mythology of inter-being with all of life?

We invite you to participate in a LIVE Zoom council—transforming anxiety into empowerment. Encountering our anxiety and fear is vital if we are to see this crisis with clarity and be at full strength in meeting this crisis. Merely remaining in either denial or survival mode—attempting to either brush it off or tough it out—keeps the heart stuck in a frozen condition. Having a safe place, a sacred council, allows the tender heart to thaw, and to express and transform its pent up emotions. This process is key for moving from desperation to empowerment.
You are invited to this special Zoom gathering where we'll meet this Climate Change moment: 
  • First, we will meet our understandable anxiety and fear.
  • Then, we will transition to empowerment, by connecting with our soul's deep purpose.

The last 24 months of Covid-19 have been just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Meeting the pandemic, as difficult as it was (and still is) can be seen as a dress rehearsal for meeting the existential threats that are now beginning to crash upon our shores.

We don't have to wait to be swallowed by the next crisis. We can relinquish the story of separation and come together, powered by our soul-level purpose, offered as a gift of service to life.  
We would love to have you join us on May 31st.  
 
Can't make it? Sign up (blue button above) and receive the recording.
We're in this together.
Warmly, 
Jonathan Gustin & Joanna Macy

About Job One for Humanity co-sponsoring this event and the $50 in free gifts if you sign up

 

But, this free climate anxiety, upset, and anger zoom gathering is not for everyone and takes a new and different approach. It is also designed for those individuals who are of a spiritual nature. 

You might wonder why an organization like Job One, primarily science-driven, would ever co-sponsor a zoom gathering that would deal with climate anxiety and anger which would include a spiritual perspective. The answer is simple. 

There is so much climate anxiety and anger worldwide today, stopping people from acting on climate change (with so little time left to save humanity from this nightmare) that it demands practicality must win the day. If our members, visitors, and friends can relieve their climate anxiety, upset, and anger and become more active in helping us deal with what we need to do to fix the climate mess, then who cares if the cat is black or white as long as it catches those nasty stress mice.

But, co-sponsoring this free zoom call gathering does not mean Job One for Humanity is going off its climate science focus because we are not. Instead, we only want to offer our members, visitors, and friends a new support tool that we can't provide within our organization.

Almost a year ago, when Job One for Humanity co-sponsored a very different climate anxiety and anger zoom gathering, 2,800 people signed up. This time we hope to help get much-needed additional climate emotional support to significantly more individuals beyond that! 

And, as part of our Zoom gathering co-sponsorship, Job One is also going to offer a $50 gift to anyone who signs up and attends this free zoom call gathering or watches the free post-event Zoom call video.

All participants will get their choice of five climate-related e-books and one-year access to the members-only section of our website. All participants will get an email after the event with how and where to download their e-book choices and activate their membership. 

You can click here and see the 5 fantastic climate-related ebooks you can choose from and download. This link will also give you additional information about the other gift included in the $50 gift package!

A Job One for Humanity we feel that everyone deserves emotional support for dealing with the very real stresses of the climate change and global heating emergency.

    Dear John,

    We cosponsored a climate anxiety event a year ago that did not have a spiritual element. Since then the climate anxiety problem has got worse and many individuals of a spiritual nature get benefit form approaches that incorporate a spiritual perspective. Things are so bad right now with the climate that we decided to co-sponsor this event because so many people needed this additional approach to handle enough of their climate anxiety in order to become climate activists. The people putting this on are progressive and this is not a evangelical or fundamentalist approach by any stretch of the imagination.

    I’M EVEN ANGRIER THAN I WAS BEFORE, GIVEN THAT YOU ARE NOT OFFERING A NON-SPIRITUAL ALTERNATIVE. THE GULLIBILITY REQUIRED FOR EMBRACING MOST RELIGIONS AND SPIRITUAL PRACTICES WILL HELP THE MAJORITY OF PEOPLE TO REMAIN IN IGNORANCE LONG AFTER WE’VE REACHED THE POINT OF NO RETURN. WE NEED FACTS NOW MORE THAN EVER, NOT MORE AIRY-FAIRY, WOO-WOO NONSENSE. I’M EVEN CONSIDERING DISCONTINUING MY SUPPORT IF MAGICAL THINKING IS THE BEST YOU’VE GOT TO OFFER. BETTER TO JUST RELAX AND ENJOY THE SHOW RATHER THAN ENDURE ANY MORE OF THE KIND OF NONSENSE THAT GOT US IN THIS MESS IN THE FIRST PLACE.
