“Books about social and ecological change too often leave out a vital component: how do we change ourselves so that we are strong enough to fully contribute to this great shift? Active Hope fills this gap beautifully, guiding readers on a journey of gratitude, grief, interconnection, and, ultimately, transformation.”
— Naomi Klein, author of This Changes Everything
Join us as we read the newly updated Tenth Anniversary Edition of Active Hope: How to Face the Mess We’re In with Unexpected Resilience and Creative Power.
Joanna Macy and Chris Johnstone offer us a worldview, community, and practices that help us look at the challenges we face straight on and be unafraid of the suffering of our world. Through our beloved elder Joanna Macy’s 50+ years of scholarship in systems theory, deep ecology and Buddhism, this body of work, coined the ‘The Work that Reconnects’, is a radical gift and tool belt to us in this time of great uncertainty. Let us feel unalone in our pain for the world–and remember that our despair, outrage, and numbness, is actually a sign of our collective health-it is an alarm. We are part of this living body of Earth, and our pain is our power if we learn to harness it, transform it and see it for what it is.
