Mar 19, 2024, 1:30 p.m. – 4:00 p.m EST
An Equinox online workshop
Future generations will look back at the time we are living in now. The kind of future they look from will be shaped by choices we make in our lifetimes. Combining the Work that Reconnects and planning tools from other traditions, this workshop offers a supportive structure for co-crafting the future you want to live and sow seeds for those yet to come.
Take time to acknowledge your learning, challenges and victories in relation to personal and planetary care from the past year. Reexamine priorities and choices. Choose the creative direction for going forward with clarity and renewed commitment. Offer and receive inspiration as you craft your vision within the supportive container of community.
This workshop is designed to facilitate a vision from and for your ecological self.
to see ourselves as one of many parts of a vibrant global ecosystem and to value all of nature inherently rather than merely human benefits. The ecological self is who we are when we see ourselves as interwoven with the rest of life . . . the ecological self is altruistic, with a deep-seated need to care for and protect all life, not just human aims.

The Work that Reconnects:
Developed by Joanna Macy and updated over the past five decades with collaborators around the world, this group work is known as the Work that Reconnects. The process combines teachings and practices that help people transform grief or paralysis in the face of ecological and social challenges into energy for constructive, collaborative action.
Robin Macdonald is a spiritually-rooted facilitator, moving at the intersections of social justice, earth care, spirituality and mental health. Part of the Scottish-Irish diaspora living on unceded Algonquin Territory, also known as Wakefield, Quebec, Robin is a restorative justice practitioner, communal grief and Work that Reconnects facilitator, Yasodhara Yoga teacher and writer. Core to her work is the role of community in healing and thriving.
