Welcome Helen and Hank to the Weavers Team!
The Work That Reconnects Network is teaming up with Pulp Films and Video Project to support the international release of Once You Know, an award-winning film by Emmanuel Cappellin in collaboration with Anne-Marie Sangla.
The core team of Network Weavers has been working hard to evolve and improve the functionality of the WTR Network website and expand the services it provides to meet the needs of our global community. As part of this process, we’re reaching out to our community members from around the world for feedback on the website and gathering an international focus group to evaluate new design and functionality as we upgrade the site.
Your skills and talents are needed! Please help us co-create a thriving future for the Work That Reconnects by engaging in one of the Network’s committees – Facilitator Support, Regenerative Finance, Communications, Webinars and Conversation Cafés Program, and Deep Times Journal. These working groups help guide the development of the Network as we respond to the evolving needs of our worldwide community.

I met Joanna’s work not long after the triple catastrophe of March 11th in 2011. Sean Kelly, a colleague of Joanna as well as professor at California Institute of Integral Studies, came to teach at Ritsumeikan university in Kyoto. He introduced the concepts of Joanna’s work and facilitated some powerful exercises from the WTR. I was struck by the contents (and him. That’s why he is now my husband). I moved to Berkeley in 2013 and since then, I have taken her workshops, participated in some classes Joanna and Sean co-taught at CIIS, and I also was part of the facilitator training program Joanna had for people of color in 2014.
There are not many bodies of work with such a creative yet simple format to move people through their most difficult emotions and free up their energies to be more active in creating a better world. I am grateful for Joanna’s genius and dedication to this work, and for all the people working to evolve the practices to meet these times.

We, as WTR Facilitators, want to develop tools to work effectively with people living in a traumatized world. A group of WTR Facilitators is designing a webinar series for […]
