Welcome to our evolving resources database. All the resources listed here are free to use and distribute as long as the appropriate source and/or authors are acknowledged.
The resources have been submitted by different facilitators and contributors who have kindly shared with the extended network of facilitators and the general public, for the benefit of all.
A team of volunteers and paid staff review the resources for edits, accuracy and alignment with the “Work That Reconnects” vision, mission and values before they are posted. Some resources have been in our network for a long time and may need extra review. If you see anything missing or have suggestions or edits, please send us an email or contact us.
Most of the resources are in English. There is a plan to translate and incorporate resources from diverse languages and approaches to the Work. If you want to volunteer for this project, please contact us.
Disclaimer: while we make every effort to ensure resources are inclusive and appropriate, we have no control over the original authors work. If you have any feedback that pertains to the content or format, please connect with the actual author/creator of the resource.
