Tools and Practices for Resilience

These are challenging times. Aspects of our lives, our communities, and the world feel like they are falling apart. How can we face this reality and not fall apart ourselves? How do we turn overwhelm into inspired action? By fostering resilience together.

Embracing the interconnectedness of all life can empower you, instill hope, and keep you grounded. The Foothills Climate Justice Ministry extends an invitation to participate in two interconnected activities that strengthen our bond with the environment and each other.

Firstly, we invite you to attend the Seasonal Supper, a gathering focused on fellowship and sustainable dining. During this event, we collectively cook and share in a meal crafted from locally sourced, seasonal ingredients. Whenever possible, we obtain these ingredients from the Foothills Community Garden.

This leads us to our second resilience-building practice with the Climate Justice Ministry: engaging in the Community Garden. From tasks like clearing, mulching, planting, to harvesting, we actively nurture the earth and cultivate food to share with our community. We encourage you to join us in these hands-on resilience practices.

My Grandmother’s Hands anti-racism somatic practice groups are groups of eight people working together over ten sessions to identify and learn to process the racism that lives in all of our bodies. We use My Grandmother’s Hands by Resmaa Menakem to guide our work. The groups launch every January, for 8 sessions (every other week), plus an opening and closing retreat.
