E93. How To Heal Ourselves to Heal The Planet

Can climate grief and anger be catalysts for transformational healing? Is there such a thing as healthy denial? And how can we learn to work with our emotions in a way where our hearts break open and use that to serve ourselves, others, and the world? Those are only a few of the things we get into in our beautiful conversation with Jack!

In this episode:

  • How to pay attention to our fear, anger, and anxiety to let it empower you
  • The mental health work required to be a climate optimist
  • Healthy guilt and healthy denial
  • How to grow from shame
  • Why resilience is an act of resistance
