To Love this Broken Beautiful World:
The Work that Reconnects and Our Struggles for Justice:
An open source body of work originally developed by Joanna Macy, "The Work That Reconnects (WTR) builds motivation, creativity, courage and solidarity for the transition to a sustainable human culture. WTR has inspired thousands of people to take heart and work together for the sake of life on Earth, despite rapidly worsening social and ecological conditions".*
The practices safely invite engagement with what is present right now: the immensity of the despair as well as the beauty and potential for personal and group empowerment.
This work supports movement through the paralysis of overwhelming emotion by illuminating the personal undercurrents present in your activism.
It is relevant and applicable.
Let it support you.

Calling all world changers, world lovers, good people who care about the direction of our planet, peoples, and communities! Joanna Macy offers us tools to not only really see and understand what is happening right now, but also skills for hope and change even in these moments of crisis.
Are you already feeling burnt out from Trump's first 100 days? Feeling scared of pipelines threatening? Wondering how you fit into this work of change? Tired of organizing meetings without heart?
Come spend 4 hours getting in touch with this body that holds truth and power beyond any current reckoning. Come spend time with others who care about this beautiful, broken world.
Through body activities, group and individual work, we will participate in the Work that Reconnects-- reconnects us to ourselves, each other, and our world.
Hope to see you.
You are not alone.
