We are alive at an extraordinary moment in time: It is a time of immense uncertainty, as Covid-19 impacts our lives locally & globally, climate catastrophe looms, the sixth mass extinction accelerates, and the wounds of inequality and inhumanity are laid bare. It is also a time of great possibility when creativity, courage, and collective action can change the political and ecological landscape for future generations. A time when many of us are seeking ways to reconnect to one another and to the living Earth, and to bring forth our particular gifts to contribute.
The Work That Reconnects is a transformational body of work that includes theories and interactive practices enabling us to reconnect to our own true nature, the web of life, and to our human community. Opening our hearts and minds to the love and the grief we feel for our world empowers us to act on behalf of Earth.
In this 3-part workshop you have the opportunity to experience interactive sessions focussing on each of the 4 stages of the spiral of the Work That Reconnects:
May 3rd will focus on: Gratitude, and Honouring our Pain for the World.
You will receive tools to practice in your daily life after this first day, and meet for a deepening group reflection on May 10th.
The sessions on May 17th will focus on Seeing with New/Ancient Eyes, and Going Forth.
We will use guided meditation, small group work, whole group explorations, movement, creative writing, poetry and music to guide us through these stages.
