ONLINE! Active Hope: Rekindling Resilience for Covid-19 and Climate Anxiety

May 29, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - May 30, 2020 @ 6:00 pm CDT

$55 – $150

with Kathleen Rude   I offered my first online full Spiral Active Hope/Work That Reconnects workshop in April and was delighted to find that we can go deep emotionally and truly connect with each other even though we are online. This workshop is designed with ample breaks, varied interactive experiences, time offline for individual exercises and reflections and will be limited to 24 participants to ensure a quality community experience.

Here’s what participants had to say about the online workshop:

“At first I was really disappointed that this could not happen in person. Now in hindsight, I’m amazed at how deeply we all connected remotely from different parts of the world!”  C.P.

“You put so much preparation, love and attention into this presentation. It really showed. Your efforts produced a wonderful and empowering program.” N.C.

Friday, 6:30pm – 9:00pm Central Standard Time  (UTC -5) AND Saturday, 9:00am – 6:00pm Central Standard Time (UTC -5)

In this workshop, we will move through the spiral of The Work That Reconnects with the understanding that we are all in this together! Through our exploration, we will cultivate and strengthen our resilience to engage with the Covid-19, climate crisis, upcoming elections, environmental and social injustice and turmoil in our lives.

We will spend time online in community and offline in self-reflection (with time outside if you’re able) to receive inspiration and healing for our weary, overwhelmed hearts and souls. In supportive and trustworthy space, we will honor our pain for the world, reconnect to active hope and find clarity around how we can play a part in the healing of our communities and our beautiful planet.

This retreat includes experiential practices, inspirational readings, singing and simple rituals. It’s engaging, invigorating and gives you tools for dealing with the challenges of living in difficult times.

Sliding Scale Investment: $150 – $55. (those who are able to pay more are helping to make this event available to those who cannot.)  Some scholarships are available. To inquire, email [email protected]

“Active Hope is not wishful thinking…Active Hope is waking up to the beauty of life on whose behalf we can act. We belong to this world. The web of life is calling us forth at this time and we are here to play our part. Active Hope is a readiness to discover the strengths in ourselves and in others; a readiness to discover the reasons for hope and the occasions for love.” ~ Joanna Macy
