Arrive at 5:30-6pm for the potluck. Bring your own dish to pass and the recipe for our community recipe book.
We will invite you to get food at 6pm. Until then, we’ll talk amongst ourselves about the Food Eco-Challenge. What conscious decisions do you make in your life to make low-impact, sustainable food choices? Did you try anything new since the last potluck?
We will reveal the next Eco-challenge topic before we transition to the workshop at 6:30pm.
**This is a family-friendly event – kid’s activity available during workshop.**
The Work That Reconnects – An intro to co-counseling and the practices of Joanna Macy.
How can we find the resilience and courage to face the challenges of these times? In this session, we will practice ways of releasing fear and anger and reconnecting to what sustains us. The first hour will be an introduction to co-counseling–a peer process for two or more people to heal past and present hurts, celebrate growth, and make intentional change. The second hour starts with a brief introduction to eco-philosopher Joanna Macy and her “work that reconnects.” In simple paired conversations, we will share what is in our hearts about the state of our world.
