“The Great Turning involves the emergence of new and creative human responses that
enable the transition from the Industrial Growth Society to a Life-Sustaining Society.
The central plot is about joining together to act for the sake of life on Earth.”
from Coming Back to Life by Joanna Macy & Molly Brown


The Great Turning is happening all around the world through the efforts of countless individuals, movements and organizations that are rising together to meet the challenges of our times and dedicate ourselves to acting for the sake of life on Earth.

The WTR Network is proud to be one of many such organizations and celebrates the collaboration, connection and mutual support we can provide to one another through partnering and uplifting each other.

Our Partner Organizations:
  • Are working within the Dimensions of the Great Turning (i.e. Holding Actions, Gaian Structures, Shifts in Consciousness, Nurturing Life)
  • Share some of our common worldviews (i.e. systemic approach to challenges and solutions, “networks” as the base to life organization, deep concern for environmental and social issues, etc.)
  • Are committed to regenerative systems and meet us in a place of reciprocal offerings that increase our mutual ability to serve our wider communities
  • Offer support and resources to complement the learning journeys of WTR facilitators and/or practitioners within the Foundations of the WTR (i.e. systems thinking, deep ecology, deep time, ancient and enduring spiritual traditions, transforming our relationship with power, undoing oppression)

The Work That Reconnects Network is committed to nurturing mutually beneficial and long-lasting working relationships with like-hearted organizations.

As the proverb goes, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together”. 

We would love to hear from you if you resonate with our message, and would like to explore options on how we can move forward together.
