Work That Reconnects Immersion w/ Lydia Violet
Oct 25, 2019 - Oct 27, 2019$400,
Wild Ground Alabama is delighted to host a 3-day immersion exploring the Joanna Macy’s powerful and timely ‘Work that Reconnects” (WTR), enhanced with some community singing to help deepen our connection to ourselves and each other. Lydia Violet Harutoonian will lead us through an intimate experience with the Work That Reconnects (WTR), a dynamic, interactive body of work developed by Macy, a scholar and respected elder in systems theory, deep ecology, and Buddhism as well as 50+ years of international activism. Together we’ll learn tools, meditations, and concepts that we can rest into and organize with, in our desires to be effective allies to both planet and people.
This will be invaluable for anyone who is involved or would like to be involved in promoting positive change for people and planet, and addresses the emotional reality of ‘how to face the mess we’re in without going crazy’.
Lydia, M.A. has apprenticed closely with Joanna Macy for the past decade, learning how we can metabolize our pain for the world into energy for resilience, action, and community. As Lydia is also a community song leader and musician with the Music as Medicine Project. She will weave in accessible and optional community songs. We will experience both the teachings of Joanna Macy and the power of music to resources us as we face both the peril and promise of our time.?
