Work that Reconnects: Healing Burnout Amidst Planetary Crisis

October 29, 2023 @ 9:30 am - 6:00 pm EDT

$175 – $195 USD

Lydia Violet Harutoonian

Event Overview

Each day, as we face the news of climate chaos, political warfare, ongoing oppressions, species extinction, and ecological and social suffering, we are asked to reconcile these collective traumas with all that is breaking in our hearts. It is natural in our time to feel despair, overwhelm, and grief, and with a lack of spaces to process and reorient, we collectively suffer from an untended burnout that needs supportive community and tools for healing.

Climate anxiety and ecological despair are real: these feelings arise on behalf of a world desperate for our collaboration, calling us to act with dignity and grace. It is here that we nourish our compass for the times ahead. Joanna Macy’s “Work That Reconnects” is a group work developed over the past 5 decades with a bounty of teachings and practices to meet us right here in our existential needs. It offers us tools for transforming our grief, anger, paralysis, and fear into compassionate connection and action with our world and communities. We can re-learn our place in the web of life, and rekindle our motivation to act on behalf of life on earth.

Join us for a nourishing and powerful day-long immersion into the Work That Reconnects to gain new tools in navigating the current crisis – on a personal and planetary level.
