Dear Work That Reconnects Network Family and Friends, This past week our team of weavers, staff and volunteers gathered in Council. With the intention to connect within deep presencing and listening, we are creating spaces to get to know each other beyond the tasks and roles we each attend to in support of the Network. […]
The theme for our current issue of Deep Times, Unraveling Patriarchy and Shifting the Paradigm, is now available.
The response has been heart-warming. We are grateful for all the submissions, both the ones we used and the ones we had to turn away or set aside for a future issue. We’ve put together a rich array of articles, essays, poems and artwork that address the challenge of unraveling patriarchy and shifting the dominant paradigm to one of reverence and respect for all life, based on our radical interconnectedness with our fellow humans of all cultures, ancestry, and identities and with all beings of Earth.

We start 2022 with gratitude for all that is: as root teacher Joanna Macy has said, just being alive on this Earth is enough to celebrate.
We have, however, experienced important losses in just two months: social activist and author bell hooks, human rights activist Desmond Tutu, and master precursor of the concept of engaged spirituality Thich Nhat Hanh.
Each of them left us with eyes wide open to the injustices and challenges as well as the possibilities. And their passing opens the doors for new leaders and actions based on the inspiration they sowed.

Dear WTR Network Family and Friends, Over the past couple of months I’ve had the great honor and joy of supporting the WTR Network-sponsored international release of the film Once You Know.

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.
