The Ecological Heart: Compassion, Music and the Work that Reconnects
Feb 25 @ 7:00 pm - Feb 26 @ 7:00 pm EST$50 – $225
How can we meet the climate crisis and other social and environmental challenges of our times with clear eyes and an open heart? How can welcome the wisdom of the body and emotions in service to life on earth?
Combining music and the Work that Reconnects to explore and practice compassion, this online workshop is for those who want to:
- Learn how to be with suffering without turning away – from yourself, your community, our world;
- Be supported and receive tools for unlocking and moving stuck emotions and changing habitual behaviours (fear, reactivity, paralysis, numbing-out);
- Explore singing as a source of rejuvenation, healing and connection;
- Build your desire and capacity to act in ways that contribute to the healing of our world
- Widen your experience of self to include other beings and the planet
- Use your imagination for the welfare of the whole
“We are capable of suffering with our world, and that is the true meaning of compassion. It enables us to recognize our profound interconnectedness with all beings . . .
and as your heart breaks open there will be room for the world to heal. That is what is happening as we see people honestly confronting the sorrows of our time.” Joanna Macy
