Welcome to an inclusive conversation centered on acceptance, compassion, and care.
Welcome to the Climate Café:
An informal, open, respectful, confidential space to share emotional responses and reactions to the climate and ecological emergencies.
Small group: Maximum of 8 partcipants.
Quiet, reflective experience. A haven from usual busyness and activity.
The intention is to be with ourselves and each other, not to lead participants toward any conclusion.
Exploration of thoughts, feelings, and experiences rather than a discusssion on what we are "doing about" the climate crisis.
Open to all regardless of your current engagement with the climate crisis.

I am a student/intern therapist or counsellor. Can I attend?
Yes! Students and interns are very welcome.
I'm not a counsellor or therapist. Can I attend?
Thank you for your interest in the Climate Café! The groups are created with counsellors and therapists in mind. If you are not a counsellor or therapist, please consider other Climate Café opportunities. https://www.communityclimatecouncil.org/climate-cafe is one such resource.
Will we be making art or music in the Café?
It is up to individual participants if you would like to bring art or music to the Café. This is all about creating and holding space for your genuine expressions and exploration. While there is openness to any creative expression that participants would like to bring, there are no expectations or specific requests for art-making or musicking.
Is this a therapy session?
No. This is not a therapy session or clinical space. It is a co-supportive non-clinical space for gentle dialogue and mutual support.
How do you send the donations to CIER? What are the processing fees?
Thinkific charges a processing fee of 2.9% + 30 cents. This means that of your $5 payment, $0.45 is processing fees and $4.55 will be donated to CIER. I will donate the total sum from all 2022 Climate Cafés to CIER in late December 2022. In the spirit of transparency, the receipt for this donation will be posted for your viewing.

Seabrook Music Therapy operates on the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, which includes Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. This land is also Treaty territory of the Williams Treaties and is now home to many First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. I am grateful for the opportunity to live, work, and play on this land.
