The Work That Reconnects: A Workshop on Sacred Activism

Feb 18 @ 7:00 pm - Feb 19 @ 4:00 pm EST

$80

Based on the work of Joanna Macy, The Work That Reconnects unfolds as a spiral journey through four stages: Coming from Gratitude, Honoring our Pain for the World, Seeing with New/Ancient Eyes, and Going Forth. The journey helps us experience first-hand that we are larger, stronger, more creative, and more deeply interconnected than we knew. We will explore gratitude, anger, grief, and hope, and move into a deeper understanding of how to create our best collective future.

The workshop includes interactive exercises to help us support one another as we work towards a more sustainable, just, and peaceful world where all beings can thrive.

Participants will be eligible to apply for a seed grant of up to $300 for a current or newly conceived project related to Earth Care.

This workshop is led by Beth Remmes who is a Facilitator for the Work That Reconnects, a member of the Unity Worldwide Ministry Earth Care Team, is on the Board of Directors for Georgia Interfaith Power and Light, and co-founder of The Four Directions Fund.

Joanna Macy PhD, is a scholar of Buddhism, general systems theory, and deep ecology. The author of more than twelve books, she is the root teacher of the Work That Reconnects. Her work addresses psychological and spiritual issues, the cultivation of ecological awareness, and the fruitful resonance between Buddhist thought and contemporary science.
