I'm a complete beginner in the Work That Reconnects. Here's how I got here.
I worked on a "social documentary" project for years and years. That somehow took me to explore a bit of "Theatre of the Oppressed". I was, and still am, amazed with the possibility to communicate with your sorroundings with basis on a physical and mental practice, as opposed to relying solely on sudden "inspiration", as I had grown used to.
As I was taking those steps with my right foot, with my left foot I was exploring tanatology. My exploration had been based solely on learning about other people's experience. Human beings like Frank Ostaseski, Roshi Joan Halifax, Ram Dass and Jack Kornfield. I learned from them all the internet allowed me to.
When I encountered Joanna Macy's work, it rang a bell I had been looking for. It showed me a path with possibilities I had wanted to explore: creative energy as communiction practice. Communication within a community as within the self. External communication as a means for internal exploration. Internal communication as a means for external explorations.
And now I'm learning to take my first steps again. On this journey, I'm looking to meet a community to practice and learn with.
This is why I'm here.
