PARTICIPATE IN GROWING THE NETWORK
In Networks, everyone is a leader, encouraged to connect to others and initiate collaborative action; power is distributed, not concentrated. ~ June Holley, “An Introduction to Network Weaving”
We are being called to step forward together as Shambhala Warriors at this critical time. Here are steps you can take to help weave a powerful Network for the Great Turning. Become a member today.
There are three types of Network members:
- Have experience facilitating the Work That Reconnects workshops? Apply and join us. Membership is $75 annually. Not able to pay the annual fee? Ask us for discount code, work-trade and scholarships options.
- If your application is approved: be listed as a facilitator and be able to post your events and articles on the workthatreconnects.org website. You will also receive a quarterly facilitators-only newsletter, have access to a facilitators-only area in the website and a forum and will enjoy discounts in webinars and cafes.
- Join for a donation of any amount to the Network. Your donation of any size will support ongoing and new projects and a portion will go to the facilitators scholarship fund.
