Using the Work that Reconnects within Community, Webinar

Webinar: Using the Work that Reconnects within Community
with Margo van Greta and Jacqueline Buckingham
7pm-9pm AEST | 9pm-11pm NZST | 10am-12pm BST
How can the Work that Reconnects help communities and community groups to become more cohesive and therefore more resilient?
Communities succeed or fail in part as a result of the systems they have in place. Shared rituals and structures allow voices to be heard, feelings to be felt and expressed, in a healthy and held way. These systems are vital to a healthy and healed community / community group.
Margo and Jacqueline share their experiences of bringing the Work that Reconnects into Community, including in the Findhorn Ecovillage, which has existed now for almost 60 years. It has a commitment to include both inner work as well as outer work, and the Work That Reconnects is one of its supportive practices.
Some of the topics we will explore include:
Bringing important topics (eg the climate crisis) back into conscious awareness and active engagement within community or community groups.
Bringing WTR in larger events that also include other angles and methods, creating a rich and varied experience.
Using aspects of the WTR Spiral when the community is faced with challenging and potentially divisive proposals or changes.
Healing traumatic experiences, and discovering how the essence of the WTR spiral is integrated in the community and readily available in times of trauma and great need.
Creating community cohesion and a shared direction and vision
