Changing seasons invites the opportunity to reflect and embrace what it means to be both vulnerable and strong at the same time. Trees become more exposed in dropping temperatures when losing their leaves in the Fall. Budding flowers in the Spring endure random snowfall and uncertain conditions from day to day. We too as activists and concerned people on this planet must face and embrace our vulnerability in changing conditions. Mother nature is our teacher and healer.

And burnout is real. You can care deeply for something or someone and still reach a point in which your overwhelm, anxiety, or fatigue have clouded your joy or true calling and connection to the work. It becomes more and more clear that as activists we must recognize the signs of burnout and work to take care of ourselves and one another in this journey for a fossil free and just future.

We are excited to be further developing our climate wellness & resiliency offerings here at 350 Colorado and in coalition with those we organize with. We are working with Boulder resident and mental health professional Eva Jahn to make it a robust body of work in 2023!

Eva (she/her) is a multi-lingual licensed psychotherapist in private practice specializing in trauma and the emotional and somatic impact of violence on the individual and communities – whether it’s racially or gender-charged violence or the destruction of our planet – grief, anxiety, trauma, shame, feelings of despair and anger are all part of it. As faculty of the International Center for Mental Health & Human Rights, Eva has facilitated contemplative based trauma and resiliency training locally and internationally to communities on the frontlines.

As a climate-aware psychotherapist and member of the North America Climate Psychology Alliance, Eva is passionate about understanding the immediate mental health impacts of climate related disasters and long term stressors of living with the reality of climate change over time. To Eva, learning emotional resiliency skills with ways of motivating effective action and creating intentional moments of reconnection with the earth and all her inhabitants, feel essential to the wellbeing of our world. She holds a certificate in Climate Psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies in California, USA.

Having ventured through and learned from many landscapes, cultures and ecosystems, Eva now spends her time on a communally stewarded land between ponderosa pines, aspens, spruces and fir trees, nestled between the foothills and high peaks of the Rocky Mountains, USA.

But before we put anything on the calendar, or decide on specifics of the workshops to be offered this year, we’re hoping to authentically gauge our community members to understand how to best show up to this work. Online or in-person? One session or a few?

Help us out and take our Climate Wellness & Resiliency interest form – it will take less than a minute! Share far and wide with your networks and any interested groups you know. We will run this survey until mid-April.

And mark your calendars for Wednesday, April 26th at 6pm! Our second Movement Building Committee meeting of the year will be happening and we need you there to help us strengthen our climate wellness & resiliency work (and other important focus areas!).
