In this Feeling the Impact Series, we will explore how our need for safety, dignity, and the right relationship deeply influence how we navigate crises. The past six months have brought unparalleled disruption and loss that has affected every aspect of our personal, organizational, and communal lives. Intermingled with the grief of losing hundreds of thousands of precious lives, we are experiencing the traumatic loss of livelihoods, homes, businesses, and beloved landscapes as wildfires whip across broad swaths of our state. Many of us still harbor disturbing memories of the devastating wildfires of recent years. Others are also carrying the gravity of events at the heart of the racial uprisings. All of these place demands on our bodies, hearts, and minds as well as our relationships, our organizations, and the systems in which we operate.

Part 4: Now What? Building a Support Ecosystem for the Age of Disruptions

As we work our way through multiple large-scale disruptions to the known and familiar, what support eco-systems can we put in place for ourselves and our grantee partners? What are the principles, practices, and conditions we can cultivate within ourselves and our organizations to be able to respond to crises in generative ways, in the medium and long term? In this final session, we will explore and learn about practices and processes to create cultures of healing and resourcefulness within our organizations and with our grantee-partners.
