Postponed to March 15th ~ For The Love of this Earth
“If the world is to be healed through human efforts, I am convinced it will be by ordinary people, people whose love for this life is even greater than their fear.”
― Joanna R. Macy
Feeling anger, fear, sorrow, apathy...and more.. for the state of our world and this life giving planet ? You are not alone. The Work That Reconnects, developed by wise elder Joanna Macy (https://www.joannamacy.net/main#work) is a healing balm for the weary soul.
"This experiential group work follows a spiral sequence flowing through four stages: beginning with gratitude, then, honoring our pain for the world, seeing with fresh eyes, and finally, going forth. The critical passage or hinge of the workshop happens when, instead of privatizing, repressing and pathologizing our pain for the world (be it fear, grief, outrage or despair), we honor it. We learn to re-frame it as suffering-with or compassion. This brings us back to life."
11 am -5 pm / $25 suggested donation. Bring bag lunch.
