with Jackie Larkin and Maggie Ziegler
Note: this event is now full, please register to the waiting list.
In these distressing and uncertain times, marked by the pandemic, climate emergency and deep social and environmental inequity, the pain and suffering caused by human systems of dominance is laid bare. Whether or not we are actively involved in movements for resistance and transformation, or feeling isolated and alone, we experience confusion, pain and uncertainty. We are reminded that we need one another.
This intimate zoom gathering, limited to 12 registrants, offers three Saturday morning explorations of experiential practices that engage our whole selves in deepening our connections to ourselves, our human community and all life on earth. Exploring our gratitude for life as well as the pain we carry for the imperiled state of our world, participants will gain personal insight, resources, and renewed energy for bringing their gifts into service of life.
Before each of the three sessions, participants will receive reflections and instructions for an outdoor activity. These will be an integral part of the program and we ask everyone to commit to these activities as well as to all three zoom sessions.
Jackie Larkin and Maggie Ziegler are skilled facilitators who have co-facilitated the reconnecting work for twenty years. They integrate a wide range of experiences and perspectives into their facilitation, and have trained extensively with eco-philosopner Joanna Macy, who developed a pioneering form of group work called The Work That Reconnects. Maggie and Jackie are walking the path of grounding this work in practices of decolonization.
