Regenerative conversations,
connections, and resources
for moving beyond doom.




1.  A normal feeling of disgust or dread upon realizing that technological progress and economic growth and development are the root of our predicament,  not our way out.

2.  A name for the anxiety and fear called forth when living in a corrupt, dysfunctional civilization causing a mass extinction.

3.  The mid-point between denial and regeneration . . .  with or without us. 





1.  What opens up when we remember who we are and how we got here, accept the inevitable, honor our grief, and prioritize what is  pro-future and soul-nourishing.

2.  A fierce and fearless reverence for life and expansive gratitude — even in the midst of abrupt climate mayhem and the runaway collapse of societal harmony, the health of the biosphere, and business as usual.

3.  Living meaningfully,  compassionately, and courageously no matter what.

Those with a post-doom mind and heart haven’t given up; they’ve stood up. Empathy follows naturally in the wake of realizing what is underway and unstoppable.

A post-doom mindset is a hard-earned and often fluctuating state of being. Classic stages of grief mark a well-worn path. However, mere acceptance of what is unavoidable need not be the endpoint. Michael Dowd (with occasional co-hosts) has invited 90 guests (recorded over 4 years) to share their personal journeys along this trajectory and especially the gifts they have found on the other side. Participants share personal stories, perspectives, and tools that go beyond emotional detachment, stoic resolve, and spiritual transcendence. For example…

What shifts in perception, understanding, relating, and identity become possible when we walk through a post-doom doorway? How do priorities, life-ways, and outer-world involvements shift and clarify on the other side? And how can such changes call forth genuine equanimity, even joy?

Discussion forums, emotionally supportive videos, gallows humor, and more can be found on the “Connect” page. And the “Resources” page has the best curated collection of audiobooks, instructional videos, and documentaries on the Internet, as well as blogs, podcasts, and other “Post Doom, No Gloom” goodies.
