A word from our Facilitator: We hope to provide our audience with a deeper understanding of how we are impacted by the critical issues we are facing, and provide the experiential tools that will help us move beyond our despair, fear, anger, etc. We will discover our personal allies, explore the ideas of collective power, and build our resilience so that we can each do something to heal our world. This work and book acknowledge the anxiety that many of us feel about the environmental and social justice issues that we are all facing. The three sessions will provide a theoretical understanding of Joanna Macy’s “Work That Reconnects” along with experiential exercises that make the work deeply spiritual and heart-based — and so much more powerful, and easily remembered and accessed after reading and studying this book together!
