Last week, I gave a five day workshop on “Managing Planetary Collapse” at a retreat center in northern Costa Rica. The participants came together to earnestly grapple with the converging crises that define these times — while learning how to be more hopeful and impactful with insights about how the current predicament came into being.

This essay is written as a summary of what we covered to help spread what we are doing here and stimulate discussions more broadly. Our plan is to offer the workshop again later this year. Yet we realize that many will not be able to join us in person and this topic is relevant to a much larger number of people. In the spirit of sharing, I write these words to encourage readers to take up your own conversations in earnest about the state of the world and where we are all going as a species in the midst of unprecedented global change.
