The challenges we face sometimes when we look at the world around us are huge. It can be devastating to be confronted with the climate crisis, and its effects on life on planet earth. We may experience frustration, anger, despair, numbness, or simply the wish to turn away from it all.

Or we may choose a different response. Every crisis also is an opportunity to generate our resilience, to bring forth our courage, creativity and care. It may ask us to dig deeper into our own inner resources. “Be the change you want to see in the world” said Mahatma Gandhi.

We don’t have to do this alone. We can link up with a growing number of people, organisations, and networks who contribute to a regenerative world, with creativity, skill and dedication. We too can be part of the Great Turning, in our own unique way.


We engage with The Work That Reconnects, originated by Joanna Macy. We use the format of the Spiral as our framework.

  • We will focus on GRATITUDE in our life, building up resilience as we do so.
  • We give space to HONOUR OUR PAIN for the world, as grieving is an essential part of stepping into wholeness.
  • We will shift our perspective though SEEING WITH NEW EYES.
  • In GOING FORTH, we explore our vision of the world we do want to live in, and identify steps we are willing and able to take.

This event is for you if you:

  • Are concerned about the state of the world, from climate crisis, and all the other threats to our survival.
  • Are concerned about your local bio region.
  • Are affected in your personal life by broader issues.
  • Deal with anxiety, anger, fear or numbness.
  • Want to make a difference in your own life and your surroundings.
  • Want to join a group of people in a safe and supportive space.

“Active Hope is waking up to the beauty of life on whose behalf we can act. We belong to this world.” Joanna Macy
