Due to popular demand we have opened up another section. It’s hard 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 teachings, practices, and rituals to build community resilience as we move through the Great Turning of our times.Find out more »
Fires, floods, hurricanes, rising fascism and white supremacy – It’s crazy out there. How do we keep from going crazy inside? How do we hold the pain we feel about all this?
Sometimes it feels like we will drown in the sea level rise of emotions, so we just go numb. But numbing keeps us frozen, disconnected and despondent. We need to grieve the mounting losses of our times, but doing it alone is isolating and disempowering. We need to be witnessed and held in our grief. When we can share these strong emotions in community, we find strength, resilience, and reserves of power we might never have known were available to us.
