To be alive in this beautiful,

self-organizing universe

– to participate in the dance of life with senses to perceive it, lungs that breathe it, organs that draw nourishment from it

– is a wonder beyond words.

- Joanna Macy

The Work

Drawing on the work of Joanna Macy, John Seed, Arne Naess, and many others starting in the 1970's and preserved as an evolving work of our time. The work is composed of teachings on deep ecology, living systems theory, and spiritual traditions and is a community building process that grows our courage, resilience, and solidarity. It helps clarify survival skills, like community building and tending to our grief, needed for navigating the chaotic times we are in, as well as the unique roles we each can play in creating a more just, and caring world. While exploring our inner responses to the current crises.

 The online workshop Includes:

- Introduction and discussion: the work that reconnects.

- Space for silence.

- Group process work

- Experiental Interactive exercises

- Room to decompress, share and connect

“Books about social and ecological change too often leave out a vital component: how do we change ourselves so that we are strong enough to fully contribute to this great shift? Active Hope fills this gap beautifully, guiding readers on a journey of gratitude, grief, interconnection, and, ultimately, transformation.”

- Naomi Klein, Author, "This changes everything" on the book "Active Hope"
