Peter Wicks knows grief. He lost his beloved wife to cancer, which upended his world. Then, he discovered Deep Adaptation, where people come together to grieve the loss of the future we thought we had.
Now, in the face of global cataclysm, Peter contemplates how grief leads to compassion. In this interview, Peter combines a sharp intellect, deep feelings, and a philosophical outlook to map a course toward love and compassion, even in the face of unimaginable loss.
Peter worked on environmental policy for the European Union for 16 years. He serves as a moderator for the Positive Deep Adaptation Facebook group.
