Reconciliation as core to Deep Adaptation

Written by: Bridget Woods

The controversial and unorthodox paper “Deep Adaptation: A Map for Navigating Climate Tragedy”, by Professor Jem Bendell, published mid-2018 started a deep adaptation movement, that courageously looks profoundly bad news in the eye and at the same time offers ways to live in this ‘Great Turning’.  Deep adaptation speaks of resilience (how do we keep what we really want to keep) relinquishment  (what do we need to let go of) and restoration (what can we bring back to life to better meet the coming difficulties and tragedies) as useful frameworks for community dialogue in the face of climate change. More recently he added Reconciliation.  Join Beth Jandernoa and Glennie Gillespie, respected teachers and leading lights in the Presencing and Dialogue global communities as well as long-time meditators, in a Gaia’d dialogue on Deep Adaptation with a focus on the heart opening work of reconciliation.
