Active Hope: a journey of awakening 

online course with Margo van Greta
​Saturday 24 July 10am-1pm, 2.30-5.30pm BST

“The most remarkable feature of this historical moment is not that we are on the way to destroying our world–we’ve actually been on the way quite a while. It is that we are beginning to wake up, as from a millenia-long sleep, to a whole new relationship to our world, to ourselves, and to each other.” Joanna Macy

During this one day Active Hope online course, we engage on a journey of awakening, as individuals and also within a supportive group, We explore both the joys and challenges we face in ourselves, and in our surroundings, as we participate in the Great Turning, the global awakening that is currently taking place. Join us if you would like engage more deeply in the healing of our world.

What is Active Hope?
Informed by mythic journeys, modern psychology, spirituality and holistic science, the course follows a FOUR-PART strengthening journey structured around the spiral of the Work that Reconnects.Spiral of the Work That Reconnects   The journey begins with GRATITUDE, a nourishing quality we can all tap into, that reminds us of our allies and all that supports us.
In the second stage we HONOUR OUR PAIN for the world, acknowledging our feelings: our hurt, anger, or numbness. It allows us to be present with them, in our journey to wholeness.
In the third stage we explore new perspectives that allow us to SEE WITH NEW EYES, increasing our sense of what’s possible, catching an inspiring vision and daring to believe in new possibilities.
The final stage focuses on practical steps we can take as we prepare to GO FORTH. We discover tools and resources both within and outside of ourselves, identify learnable skills that help us harness the inspirational power of positive visions and find our personal role in working towards them.
The overall aim of this experiential program is to help you find your own practice of Active Hope. Each time you put your unique gift into action, you strengthen yourself, inspire those around you, and take a step in support of life on Earth.
