Why I am called to facilitate the Work
I am called to facilitate the Work That Reconnects because it creates conditions conducive for people to tap into their inner responses to what is happening and help them uncover their unique role to play in the healing of our world.
The exercises allow them to feel their connection to each other and the self-healing powers of the web of life. They leave the workshop feeling nourished and enlivened.
How I see the Work serving the Great Turning
I appreciate the wisdom of the spiral and that the work creates the conditions for emergent properties.
This work encourages us to act from our highest self - as bodhisattvas. When we show up in the world from a place of connection, we are less likely to replicate the behaviors and stories of separateness.
Audiences I work with
I mainly work with faith and activist communities.
