Work That Reconnects Retreat Weekend:
Gather and Connect Deeply for the Healing of our World


Gather with us and summon our collective regenerative power, and access your ability
to more wisely navigate the turmoil of these times.

This workshop is for earth-lovers, changemakers, justice-seekers, activists, trailblazers, community leaders, parents, grandparents, and those longing to engage more deeply in the healing of our world.

 

WE WILL

  • Awaken inner qualities that ground and enliven us
  • Validate our emotional responses in uplifting ways
  • Shift perspectives and see with new eyes
  • Explore powerful and personally relevant actions
  • Explore The Work That Reconnects of ecopsychologist, systems theorist, and scholar of Buddhism, Joanna Macy
  • Enjoy deep nature connection, solidarity with your changemaker allies, and soul-level nourishment

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
