We are at a moment in history when many of us feel both the great love that we have for our amazing, beautiful world – and our deep despair about the state of this same precious world.
This dynamic, interactive workshop, is based on the teachings of Joanna Macy, which has inspired many thousands of people to engage wholeheartedly in working for a life-sustaining society; turning despair and apathy in the face of social and ecological crises into constructive, collaborative action.
During this weekend we will use exercises and practices drawn from deep ecology and systems theory to explore our gratitude, grief and curiosity along with our own unique gifts. We will look at what separates us and rediscover our connectivity with all life as we develop a new way of seeing the world – as our larger living body.
Joanna Macy is the founding teacher of “The Work That Reconnects”, known world-wide for empowering activists in social and ecological justice.
