For our next issue, in September 2022, we are seeking contributors from all over the world, particularly outside the US, to show how the Work That Reconnects or other related or more ancient deep ecology ritual and practices are helping people grapple with the many crises before us all, how to stay connected or reconnect with earth and each other, and how to prepare or refresh ourselves for our role in the healing of the world.

Written by Amy Spark Recognizing this year has been a difficult and extremely changeable year for Alberta (including both provincial and federal elections, climate emergencies, and massive budget cuts from our provincial government), we wanted to connect as a community and recharge.
