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.  

Faced with gathering crises that threaten to destabilise our world, we need to re-imagine what resilience really means. How can we be wise to how conflict and climate are intertwining threats that require an integrated response? 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?  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 workshop will include:

  • practical ideas to embed regenerative culture in your context
  •  a space to talk about the truth of what climate science suggests is coming – this often brings a feeling of relief
  • a pathway to discern your own core values to draw on as the foundation of your resilience
  • a dynamic co-learning experience
  • a context to explore what adaptive solutions to climate breakdown may be relevant for you

Our resilience training can be tailored to suit a variety of contexts. We can adapt our offering to give:

  • a structured approach for faith institutions to explore resilience-building from a spiritual and  practical perspective
  •  resilience skills for activists
  •  a safe container where business leaders can face facts about climate breakdown and begin to map a resilience trajectory for their teams and organisations
  • a training-the-trainer workshop
  •  a reflective space where a community group can decide together on the practical steps needed to grow their resilience
