Deep Resilience: A Work That Reconnects Series + Embodied Restorative Practices
Feb 4, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm CST
An event every week that begins at 6:30 pm on Thursday, repeating until Mar 4, 2021
These unprecedented times call for creative connection amongst us humans and our earthly home.
The Work That Reconnects offers practices to reawaken our innate bonds with each other and our sacred living Earth to guide us in the Great Turning toward a life-sustaining future. Originating from root teacher Joanna Macy, the Work That Reconnects draws on ancient spiritual traditions, deep ecology, and system thinking–and more recently, anti-oppression work.
In this 5 week series, we grow our resilience in these uncertain times through moving as a group through the Spiral of the Work That Reconnects. We begin with grounding in Gratitude, then Embracing Emotion/Honoring Our Pain, Seeing with New Eyes, and Going Forth with Active Hope.
To support the integration of these experiences into our bodies, we will weave embodied restorative practices into the Spiral including Somatic Restorative Yoga, Energization Exercises, guided meditations earth connecting movements.
May this time connect us to our ancestors and descendants in “Deep Time.”
May this time honor both silence and sound; both stillness and movement.
May this time honor the diverse perspectives of the group.
May this experience nourish and refresh our spirits and bodies.
This course includes 5 live weekly virtual gatherings and self-guided practices which will be recorded for later viewings.
There is a 25 person limit on this course. This our first time teaching WTR + embodied practices online
