Climate change and Coronavirus create great uncertainty for all of us. Tailored for climate activists, with Extinction Rebellion’s Principles and Values at its core, Building Courage is an experiential workshop that equips you with a basic toolbox for best thriving in uncertain times.

This Zoom workshop will include:

  • using paired sharing and listening partnerships to build closer, stronger relationships that help us confront our fears and bolster our courage

  • a chance to begin challenging the timidities that limit our imagining and undertaking of actions

  • understanding how deep listening can help us handle the emotional fallout from stretching further than we have ever dared, and ensuring we don’t burn out.

In line with XR’s non-hierarchical, regenerative culture, this workshop embodies inclusive approaches that ensure everybody’s voice is heard.

Workshop facilitator, Lynda Wightman, brings 25 years experience facilitating peer counseling workshops, meetings and support groups using a framework of inclusive processes and participation.


Booking is necessary as the workshop has a maximum of ten participants. Those who book will be sent details of the Zoom meeting by email.
