What year did you begin facilitating the Work That Reconnects?
I co-facilitated a brief half-day WTR workshop back in 2010 or so with faith communities in Toronto.
I have facilitiated three one-day WTR with undergrad students at the University of Toronto in 2014, 2015, and 2018.
I have used the WTR extensively in my work with the Earth Charter Center for Education for Sustainable Development, primarily in Spanish, during three one-week courses in Costa Rica as well as in limitted form in online courses.
I have also used it with grad students at La Salle University in Costa Rica on a number of occasions (2-3).
I have written about the first year of my work with UT undergrads in a published academic article. See https://www.academia.edu/30805745/Activating_Hope_in_the_Midst_of_Crisis_Emotions_Transformative_Learning_and_The_Work_that_Reconnects_
