The Work that Reconnects by Joanna Macy is acknowledged as being part of the deep ecology tradition and it's inspired by the work of Arne Naess and John Seed. Joanna Macy is an environmental activist, author, scholar of Buddhism, general systems theory, and deep ecology. She is the author of eight books, including World as Lover, World as Self, and Active Hope.


The central purpose of The Work That Reconnects is to help people uncover and experience their innate connections with each other and with the systemic, self-healing powers of the web of life, so that they may be enlivened and motivated to play their part in creating a sustainable civilization.
— Joanna Macy
