We currently are surrounded by challenges, both globally and personally.
Is it possible to consider bringing hope into our lives, into the world? Active Hope holds the attitude of hope. It is not just an outcome, it is a process.
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.
They are:
  • 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?
The session will include an introduction to the work, it is experiential, and will include sharing in small groups in the break out room. Your active participation is required!
Please note: Margo and Jacqueline hold a month long online immersion in the Active Hope: Emerging into a New World, September 5, 12, 19, 18. Find out more and book here.
