As our work in the Great Turning is dedicated to future generations of the ones yet to be, many Work That Reconnects facilitators are drawn to supporting the youngest generations among us.

Parenting and education for our youngest relatives is an essential part of working towards a Life Sustaining Society. Here, we are gathering resources and links to innovative ways that the Work That Reconnects is being used to support parents and educators and the ways it is supporting children in schools and families around the world.

If you have a project or a working group that we could highlight here, please let us know.

Facilitators and projects that bring the Work That Reconnects to children, parents and educators:

WTR facilitator Jen Myzel created this inspiring children’s sing-a-long book Yellow Lotus Flower: How One Lonesome Seed Rose Up from the Muck, with forward by Joanna Macy.

Yellow Lotus Flower follows the journey of a lotus seed and a grieving young girl as they go through the murky, uncertain, tearful, and ultimately rewarding process of transformation.  Combining Jen Myzel’s inspirational song and Hillary Mendoza’s majestic watercolor illustrations, Yellow Lotus Flower cracks open the hearts of children and adults alike.  Joanna Macy praises it as “a story for our times.”
