We are living through extraordinary times. Between the pandemic, climate crisis, protests for racial justice, and the US elections and their aftermath, it's easy to get overwhelmed and feel isolated. This talk explores how we can take adversity as the path, allowing us to build the capacity to meet difficulty in our own lives and respond to the social and ecological challenges of our times.
