SOUL TENDING SERIES

HOLDING THE LIGHT TOGETHER IN CHALLENGING TIMES

 

Six-part series, Tuesday evenings 7pm-9pm, March 7th - April 11th

You’re not alone.  We can all feel scared, frustrated, disempowered, and disillusioned in the face of what is happening in our world.  We are living in a time of great importance.  There is deeper work to do now as a community.  Let us unite, share our stories, and strengthen our resilience together.  

Created by two loving, hopeful women, Soul Tending is a space of refuge, reflection and rejuvenation especially for activists and environmentalists, but it is open to everyone. Drawing from “The Work That Reconnects,” by eco-psychologist Joanna Macy, and other earth-based soul tending work, this circle will venture into experiential processes to support healthy grieving, creativity, transformation, and renewal. 

Whatever you do, DON’T do it alone. Deliver yourselves from isolation... A part of our great work now is to recover our belonging.
— Joanna Macy
