This episode of Speaking of Resilience features LaUra Schmidt, co-founder of the Good Grief Network, a nonprofit organization that creates community space to process the painful feelings and realities of our time, and to help participants orient their lives toward meaningful action. Many come into these spaces to process climate grief and eco-anxiety. So, to help people connect and heal, Good Grief Network uses a unique 10-Step program, modeled after 12-Step programs, like Alcoholics Anonymous.

We’ve invited LaUra onto the show to discuss the spread of this kind of anxiety in our culture and how important it is for advocates to acknowledge the pain and difficulty that is a natural part of that work. But to be an effective advocate, it’s equally essential, she explains, to be present with the joy that does exist in today’s world, and to seek community with like-minded people to share both grief and joy.
