Description: This workshop is designed to foster the desire and ability to take part in the healing of our world. In the morning we will move through a four part spiral process created by Joanna Macy, known as The Work That Reconnects. Beginning with gratitude, then, honoring our pain for the world, seeing with fresh eyes, and finally, going forth. In the afternoon we will express ourselves through mixed media collage.

Since its inception in the late 1970’s, The Work That Reconnects has helped people honor their pain for the world (be it grief, outrage or despair) and learn to reframe it. Creating a space for the hearts of individuals to open, heal and find their power. To learn more about Joanna Macy and her work, please visit https://www.joannamacy.net/main
