CHOOSING HOPE: A Path from Despair to Action

We live in an extraordinary moment on Earth. As we witness unprecedented destruction of environmental, social, and political systems, we can feel overwhelmed by anger, fear and other difficult emotions. How can we remain resilient, creative, and empowered to act for the healing of our world?  

Based on the work of Joanna Macy, this participatory workshop is based on over four decades of community work with thousands of people around the world. It is designed to help you transform fear and despair into inspiration and a sense of empowerment.

We will explore gratitude, anger, grief, and hope and move into a deeper understanding of how to create our best collective future. We will end the workshop with exercises to help us support one another as we go forth and work towards a more sustainable, just, and peaceful world where all beings can thrive. 

Sponsored by by Nuclear Watch South and Green Friends. Facilitated by Beth Remmes.
