Webinar: Active Hope – Emerging Into A New World
Aug 15, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am PDT
with Margo van Greta and Jacqueline Buckingham
Saturday, August 15, 2020 8am-10am PDT (US/Canada) UTC-7 / 4pm-6pm BST
During this online session we go through the spiral developed by Joanna Macy. We move through the steps beginning with Gratitude, giving thanks to our lives. We explore our pain for the world. We will look at our world with new eyes, and we identify what we could do in our own lives, no matter how small.
A set of practices called the Work that Reconnects have been created in the form of a Spiral. They are an empowering process that includes 4 stages, each one of them increasing our resilience.
- Gratitude: boosting our own immune system, our resilience. Looking for what we love, what we are grateful for. Counting our blessings.
- Feeling our Pain for the World. Exploring what we are concerned about, What frightens us, makes us angry, sad, desperate, numb,
- Seeing with New Eyes: what can help us see ourselves and the world in a different way.
- Stepping Forward: Is there one step we can take towards creating a world we would like to live in?
