Here is a description of the workshop:

This experiential workshop will introduce Joanna Macy’s the “Work That Reconnects” and offer participants a chance to connect with their place on earth and find a way to keep moving forward with courage and an open heart.

Drawing from deep ecology, systems theory and spiritual traditions, the “Work That Reconnects” builds motivation, creativity, courage and solidarity for the transition to a sustainable human culture. First emerging in 1978, this pioneering, open-source body of work has its roots in the teachings and experiential methods of Joanna Macy.

The “Work That Reconnects” has inspired thousands of people to take heart and work together for the sake of life on Earth, despite rapidly worsening social and ecological conditions. It has also inspired people to co-create experiential practices that serve the Work in specific groups and settings.

Facilitators for this workshop are Edith MacHattie and Heather Kelly. Both have trained with Joanna Macy. We are grateful to the City of Surrey for funding through the Community Connection Initiative.
