The Work that Reconnects, April 4th - SOLD OUT
Time & Location
About the Event
Due to the current situation with corona virus, this workshop is going virtual.
What is this about?
The Work that Reconnects is an interactive body of work developed by Joanna Macy, a scholar and respected elder in systems theory, deep ecology and ancient wisdom traditions. Its purpose is to help people connect to their love and pain for this world so we can prepare to take part in its healing.
We live in a time of both peril and promise, and exist at the intersection. Many people are troubled by the way that our society seems to propagate separation from others and the severe damage that is being done to the earth and other living beings. The coronavirus specifically confronts us with the fragility of our current societal model and the fact that we are all dependent on each other for our survival.
Because we feel powerless, this pain often leads to feelings of guilt or denial. It can result in turning inward and numbing ourselves because we feel we cannot cope with it all anymore. But when we deny or suppress our pain for the world, we undermine our innate ability to contribute to its healing.
What happens in the workshop?
In this workshop we explore our inner responses to the condition of our world and prepare to take part in its healing.
How do we tap into the wisdom that will carry us through these next generations? What can we rest into? What tools can we organise? What can we learn from these tragedies?
We will create a space to touch our grief for what is happening to our world, expand our perspectives, and emerge with a new sense of how we want to show up with our gifts in this unique time in history.
