We live in an extraordinary moment on Earth. As we witness unprecedented destruction of ecological, biological, and social systems, we can feel overwhelmed by anger, fear and despair. How can we remain resilient, creative, and empowered to act for the healing of our irreplaceable world?|
The Work That Reconnects, developed by teacher/activist Joanna Macy and others, draws on deep ecology, systems theory, and engaged Buddhism. Practices might include group meditations, ritual, conversation in pairs, dance, and song. We will explore many aspects of envisioning and creating a life-sustaining society.
This workshop is facilitated by Amy Tighe, Anne Goodwin, and John MacDougall, members of the Boston-area Community of Practice, and experienced leaders of the work.
