Event Overview

Emergence during a Climate Emergency, with The Work That Reconnects

From Thursday 16 May 2024.

With Margo van Greta

The Work That Reconnects is a form of group workd 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 climate 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 emergence during a climate emergency. Every crisis also is 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 link up with a growing number of people, organisations, and networks who contribute to a regenerative world, with creativity, skill and dedication. We too can be part of the Great Turning, in our own unique way.

‘The Work That Reconnects helps people around the world discover and experience their innate connecttions with each other and the self-healing powers of the web of life, transforming despair and overwhelm into inspired, collaborative action. ‘ Joanna Macy.

Content

We engage with The Work That Reconnects, originated by Joanna Macy. We use the format of the Spiral 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 though SEEING WITH NEW EYES.
  • In GOING FORTH, we explore our vision of the world we do want to live in, and identify steps we are willing and able to take.
