The Work That Reconnects: Practices of Joanna Macy

earthAll of us are impacted by the “long emergency” as we face the challenges of finite natural resources, economic instability, and climate change. How can we live with this awareness without feeling overwhelmed? How can we find resilience and courage? In this session, we will share what is in our hearts about the state of our planet in simple paired conversations. After a brief introduction to Joanna Macy’s “work that reconnects,” we’ll explore ways to overcome psychic numbing and release energy for creative action.
