The Five Stages of Ecological Grief: A Poetry Workshop [Jessica Gigot]

Introductory | Elisabeth Kübler-Ross famously described the five stages of grief as denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. More recently, the term ecological grief has been used to understand the loss humans experience as a result of ongoing, irreversible environmental destruction. We will learn from contemporary ecopoets as well as investigate both our interior and exterior landscapes in order to craft new poems that probe and illuminate this grief and lead us on a path to awareness, climate justice, and, perhaps, a sixth stage of ecological grief: action.
