Radical Resilience is St Ethelburga’s model for growing courage and purpose in an age of climate emergency. We offer a values-led model of resilience, since we find that engaging with our deepest sense of purpose unlocks a regenerative power within us that can bring joy, freedom and hope – even when facing dark times.
Inspired by deep adaptation, this training starts from the premise that ecological and social collapse are already underway. There is an urgent need for us to respond to this both as individuals and in our communities. How can we find strength in our values and take practical steps to regenerate our world? How can we prepare to step up when things get tough – giving hope when others feel desperate and inspiring trust when communities fracture? And how can we embed adaptive solutions that prepare us well for what the future may bring, while at the same time reaching out to those already on the frontline of climate breakdown?
This project involves working with leaders in different contexts offering:
Our 2020 resilience leadership programme is already underway. We are also offering several events that are open to the public – see the events page.
There is also a training workshop you can request if you have a group of 8 or more.
