It’s heartbreaking to remain conscious and engaged in our crazy times. Everywhere we turn, we experience the Great Unraveling of our society and our world: systemic racism, the pandemic, global climate change, poverty, mass extinctions, etc. It’s clear we can’t continue with Business As Usual. The fear, grief, anger, and helplessness we feel can be unbearable because it’s not just our personal pain; it’s the collective pain of all life on Earth. When we come together and honor our feelings about our world, we realize our radical interconnectedness with all peoples and species, and become part of the Earth healing herself. It is essential that we do this work now. This precise moment is an opportunity for unprecedented transformation, a time to root into the wisdom of our living planet, heal our divisions and foster our resilience to take part in this transformation known as the Great Turning.
The Work That Reconnects offers practices to reawaken our innate bonds with each other and our sacred living Earth that guide us in the Great Turning toward a life-sustaining and just future. Pioneered by root teacher Joanna Macy, the Work That Reconnects draws on ancient spiritual traditions, deep ecology, and systems thinking.
In this 5-part online workshop, we grow our roots of resilience for these uncertain times as we move through the Spiral of the Work that Reconnects—beginning with Gratitude, then Honoring Our Pain for the World, Seeing with New and Ancient Eyes, and Going Forth. Join us for this interactive group experience that will help you restore your sense of purpose and possibility to address the complex nature of our times.
COST: We want to make this workshop available to everyone, so we are offering a sliding scale: $200 – $50. Your generosity helps us continue this important work. If your contribution needs to be less than $50, please contact us at [email protected].
