“Daring greatly means the courage to be vulnerable. It means to show up and be seen, to talk about how you’re feeling, and to have the hard conversations. Staying vulnerable is a risk we have to take if we want to experience connection.” – Brené Brown

In this time of crisis and catastrophe, our comfort is to be with other people who understand what we’re going through. In a Collapse Club meeting, you will join like-minded people in a safe, structured space to share your experience of collapse and to cultivate communal wisdom. We are interested in you personally, because it is from your personal lived experience that all thinking and action emerge. Please join us!

Format is facilitated circling and discussion including optional breakouts. 

A Year to Live Study Course

This profound and inspiring FREE course is based upon the famous book A Year to Live: How to Live this Year as If It Were Your Last  by Stephen Levine. From the facilitator,

“The fears around the collapse of the industrialized civilization are very much integrated with our fear of our mortality. When we are able to make peace with our own death, preparing for it over the course of a year, our ability to accept the collapse of our civilization comes with so much more ease. We become able to experience present moment awareness, and the joy of life itself in a way that we may never have before.”

Jackie Ziegler is the registrar. Patriciafaye Marshall is the course facilitator and she has led this course many times. Both are long time members of the Collapse Acceptance Alliance community.

A minimum of 8 and with a maximum of 12 people are required to offer the
course. A start date is projected for October.

UUs for Collapse Awareness and Acceptance

UUA Logo Chalice Graphics | UUA Branding Graphics, Colors, and Fonts |  LeaderLab |

A Facebook online discussion group for Unitarian Universalists and those sympathetic with the values of UUism to provide awareness of impending environmental, societal, and civilizational collapse and to discover ways to support each other in the realization that these inevitabilities are possible within the near future. Our aim is to realistically face together such distressing events while also finding peace, love, and meaning in whatever time is left to us both individually and collectively.

Post-doom Bloom with GRAC/E (Getting Real About Collapse/Extinction)

This women’s discussion group, focused on living the Benefits of Collapse Acceptance, is currently closed. However, we do offer a few spots from time to time, and are currently looking for those willing to start a new Bloom bouquet. 

Email Karen Perry to share more about your interest

I have found the Bouquet to be a safe and trusted space for our voices to transcend feeling lost and alone. Meeting weekly since early 2022, I have found recurring peace, groundedness, and a sisterhood that transcends the aloneness. Blooming Together assists me in finding new ways of being in a collapsing world, practically and spiritually. -Janet S.


Grief Ritual for the Equinox
21 September 2024, 10:00 am – 11:30 am AEST
Being part of a regular grief practice is a way to begin to undo the damage of our cultural avoidance of endings…by embracing them. Grieving together can free up old, locked down, energies and lead us back into a loving aliveness for the world. In the spirit of ceremony, with a deep regard for safety, we open to the regenerative and life-giving capacity of grief. (Sessions fee based)
Facilitated by Michael Shaw, Living in the Time of Dying director and therapists Michelle Walter and Heather Albrecht
