The Work that Reconnects: How to Face the Mess We’re in Enlivened & Motivated
June 21, 2014 @ 9:30 am - June 22, 2014 @ 5:00 pm$200. – $300.
The Work that Reconnects is a map for personal empowerment and transformation, deepening our capacity to act for the sake of Life on Earth. Drawing from deep ecology, systems theory and spiritual traditions, the Work That Reconnects (WTR) builds motivation, creativity, courage and solidarity for the transition to a vital Earth Community. First emerging in 1978, this pioneering, open-source body of work has its roots in the teachings of eco-philosopher Joanna Macy and colleagues. WTR has helped hundreds of thousands of people around the globe to find creativity, solidarity and the courage to act.
WTR involves a transformative journey around a spiral of four successive stages – Coming from Gratitude, Honouring our Pain for the World, Seeing with New Eyes, and Going Forth. Through gratitude we connect to our personal power and become more present to life. By honouring our pain for the world the truth of our inter-existence is made real to us. Seeing with new eyes brings a fresh understanding of who we are and how we are related to each other and the universe. We begin to comprehend our own power to change and participate, as we go forth together to create a life-sustaining society.
WTR is a way to maintain balance and joy; a waking up to the beauty of life; a realization that we belong to this world and that the web of life is calling us forth at this time. For more information about WTR, please visit: http://www.joannamacy.net/
