Roots of Resilience in Uncertain Times:
A weekend in the Work that Reconnects
March 14-15 2020, in Ashland Oregon
It’s heartbreaking to be conscious in our times of global crises. It seems every way we turn we’re contributing to the unraveling of ecological and social systems. The pain we feel can be unbearable because it’s not just our personal pain: it’s the pain of the Earth. When we come together and liberate our natural feelings about our world, we realize our radical interconnectedness and become part of the Earth healing herself.
The Work That Reconnects offers practices to reawaken our innate bonds with each other and our sacred living Earth to guide us in the Great Turning toward a life-sustaining future. Pioneered by root teacher Joanna Macy, the Work That Reconnects draws on ancient spiritual traditions, deep ecology, and system thinking.
In this workshop, we will work together to grow our resilience in these uncertain times. We will move through the Spiral of the Work That Reconnects, beginning with Gratitude, then Honoring Our Pain for the World, Seeing with New Eyes, and Going Forth. We will connect to our ancestors and descendants in “Deep Time.”
We call in Community Organizers, Teachers, Healers, Warriors, Parents, Spiritual leaders, and everyone working in service of life. Join us as we explore the complex nature of our times.
