Emergence during a Planetary Crisis, with the Work That Reconnects

July 17, 2024 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm BST

100-125-150 (GBP)

Organizer
Margo van Greta

Event Overview

In this eight-week experiential online course, you will move through the stages of the Spiral. You will get in touch with your inner qualities, acknowledging your strengths, vulnerability, challenges and courage. Interaction with the other participants is an essential aspect. This is why you will meet in small peer groups as well.

The Work That Reconnects is a form of group work designed to cultivate the intention and ability to take part in the healing of our world. The challenges we currently face when we look at the world around us are huge. It can be devastating to be confronted with the planetary crisis, a poly crisis, and its effects on life on planet Earth. We may experience frustration, anger, despair, numbness, or simply the wish to turn away from it all.

We can choose a different response. Let’s give space to explore emergence. A crisis is also an opportunity to generate our resilience, to bring forth our courage, creativity and care. It may ask us to dig deeper into our own inner resources. We don’t have to do this alone. We can connect with more people, organisations, and networks dedicated to creating a sustainable world. We too can be part of the Great Turning, in our unique way.

We use the format of the Spiral of The Work That Reconnects as our framework:

  • We will focus on GRATITUDE in our life, building up resilience as we do so.
  • We give space to HONOUR OUR PAIN for the world, as grieving is an essential part of stepping into wholeness.
  • We will shift our perspective through SEEING WITH NEW EYES.
  • In GOING FORTH, we explore our vision of the world we want to live in and will identify steps we are willing and able to take.

Is this for you?

  • Are you concerned about the state of the world, from the climate crisis and all the other threats to our survival?
  • Are you affected in your personal life by broader issues?
  • Do you experience anxiety, anger, fear or numbness?
  • Do you want to have a positive impact on both your life and the world around you?
  • Would you like to join a group of people for interactive and experiential sessions in a safe and supportive space?
