An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until Dec 15, 2022
Active Hope and the Great Turning
Online course with Margo van Greta, starting Thursday 13 October, 8 sessions.
“The Work that Reconnects helps people discover and experience their innate connections with each other and the self-healing powers of the web of life, transforming despair and overwhelm into inspired, collaborative action.” Joanna Macy
Let’s find out where and how we can make a difference. Let’s cultivate the courage and creativity to follow our heart, and be part of creating a regenerative world. It may include making radical changes in our lives. Or it involves a fine-tuning of our inner being. Join me to explore this this in a safe and supportive group
The Great Turning is a shift from the Industrial Growth Society to a life-sustaining world. Its three dimensions are:
- Actions to slow the damage to Earth and its beings.
- Creating structural alternatives
- Shift in Consciousness
We will move through a journey called the SPIRAL, which includes:
- GRATITUDE: building up resilience as we do so.
- HONOUR OUR PAIN for the world, as grieving is an essential part of stepping into wholeness.
- SEEING WITH NEW EYES, shift our perspective and integrate this in our life.
- GOING FORTH, where we explore our vision of the world we do want to live in, and identify steps we are willing and able to take, no matter how small or large.
Using practices from The Work That Reconnects and Active Hope, we engage in
- Inner work, art and ritual, bodywork and breathing, sharing in small and medium size groups.
- You will be part of a small buddy group meeting during the week.
- There will be integration activities in between sessions, and some inspirational videos.
What participants of Margo’s previous courses said:
‘This is a wonderful course, gives us insight into our thoughts and perspectives and helps us to clarify our place and activity in the world.’
‘Margo’s course enabled me to connect more deeply with myself, places of gratitude, pain, and hope and also with others. I enjoyed building relationships, getting support in planning projects, and processing my feelings in regards to the state of the world. The course was a great balance of input, body work, meditation, and group sharing and Margo was an empathetic, kind, and well-organised facilitator.’
‘This course has helped me to know my truth. And has given me the courage to follow my heart and make some big changes in my life.’
Margo van Greta is deeply inspired by the work of Joanna Macy, whom she met in her home in the Findhorn Ecovillage Community. She created Heartbeat Findhorn, Inner Work for Outer Action, facilitating the journey of spiritual deepening, resilience building and the transformation of consciousness.
