‘The Work That Reconnects’
An experiential day based on the work of Joanna Macy and focusing on gratitude as we move through the spiral, feeling our pain for the world, seeing with new eyes, and going forth with renewed love and connection in our hearts to play our role in the great turning.
“We were not meant to live shallow lives, pocked by meaningless routines and the secondary satisfactions of happy hour. We are the inheritors of an amazing lineage, rippling with memories of life lived intimately with bison and gazelle, raven and the night sky. We are designed to encounter this life with amazement and wonder, not resignation and endurance. This is at the very heart of our grief and sorrow. The dream of full-throated living, woven into our very being, has often been forgotten and neglected, replaced by a societal fiction of productivity and material gain. No wonder we seek distractions. Every sorrow we carry extends from the absence of what we require to stay engaged in this one wild and precious life”. ~ Francis Welle
