ACTIVE HOPE: An introduction to The Work That Reconnects

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 include group meditations, creative ritual, conversation in pairs, dance, and song. The work explores spiritual, emotional and intellectual aspects of envisioning and creating a life-sustaining society.

This day-long experiential workshop is facilitated by members of the Boston-area community of practice. We will offer practices in love and gratitude, a ritual to acknowledge and honor our pain for the world, sources of hope and insight, and tools for resilience and action to take into your life

Saturday, November 9, 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.
