Event Description

Building a better world is a demanding and often challenging undertaking and its common to feel burnt out or even despairing.  Joanna Macy has devised a set of exercises that she now refers to as 'The Work that Reconnects' which can reconnect us with our purpose, empower us to action and/or rekindle our fire.  Myself and a colleague are offering a taster workshop in this inspiring work based on systems theory, buddhist philosophy and wisdom from various indiginous cultures in order to support you wonderful transitioners in your important work!  The workshop is offered free of charge and if it goes well we hope to make it a monthly event.  Please email for venue details- workshop is limited to 15 people.

Everyone who is signed up to attend should have already received the address details- if not, please let me know!  Im afraid there is no space for additional people since we have our 15 but as I do hope to make this a regular event so anyone who has missed out this time will hopefully be able to come to the next one.

Thanks for understanding,
