Going Forth: Discover your Personal Power during a Climate Emergency

An online course starting 21 January 2023
Using the tools of Active Hope and the Work That Reconnects you will be guided to discover powerful new actions you can take for yourself and your life.
“Of all the dangers we face, from climate change chaos to nuclear war, none is so great as the deadening of our response.” Joanna Macy
The Great Turning” brings our attention to an inspiring vision of creating a world we really want to live in; including a commitment to act for life on earth, finding the courage to do so, and creating collaboration with others.
This four session online course is informed by mythic journeys, modern psychology, spirituality and holistic science. It aims to help each participant find their own pathway to ‘Going Forth’ – providing clarity around next steps, identifying inner and outer support, and discovering practices to maintain momentum.
Session 1: Catching an Inspiring Vision:
The first session will begin with an exploration of the first three parts of the Spiral of the Work that Reconnects – Gratitude, Honouring our Pain and Seeing with New Eyes – before we focus on Going Forth. How to coalesce our vision, our dream, our goals and start to identify steps we can take towards that.
Session 2: Daring to Believe it is Possible:
We will ask ourselves what resources we have available to us and what resources we need to cultivate, to create the world we want to live in? How do we connect with our courage, determination and resilience, even when we encounter difficulties?
Session 3: Building Support: We do not have to do everything alone. Do we have supportive networks around us? If not, how do we find those networks and how do we tap into them to provide energy for our commitments?
Session 4: Maintaining Energy and Enthusiasm:
What practices do we need to prioritise in our lives so we can maintain our energy, stay enthusiastic? How do we allow ourselves time and space for self-care and nourishment?
This course is open to you regardless of whether you have previous experience of Active Hope or the Work that Reconnects.
THIS COURSE IS FOR YOU IF YOU:
- are passionate about finding new ways to connect with your inner power and resources
- have a desire to share your gifts with the world and need some help getting clear next steps

- a community of supportive caring people
What a previous participant said:
“This series of sessions focusing on going forth through the spiral built strong connections and took us deep into the heart of what matters to us incredibly powerfully. I feel even more connected with this beautiful work and inspired to explore more with my local community as we move through these turbulent times together.” October 2021
