Event Description

Renew, Re-engage and Reconnect to Life

With Jackie Larkin and Maggie Ziegler

The workshop changed my life, inspired me, filled me and pushed me where I needed to go.”

A transformative group retreat to enliven and deepen our motivations for creating a just and sustainable world

Engage heart, mind and spirit in the task of deepening and repairing our connections to ourselves, our human community and all planetary life. 

Within a safe and transformative group process, celebrate the joy and beauty of life, open to your place within nature, and share witness to a full range of feelings about the challenges facing our troubled world.

Through dialogue, ritual, and contemplation, skilled and experienced facilitators invite you into new 
ways of seeing, encourage you to speak your truths and to find the creativity for bringing your gifts 
the service of life.

This workshop completely changed my perspective of my relationship with the planet. It has quietly moved me to be a louder voice for change.”

“A very safe and enriching environment.  I felt I was doing the work alongside everyone, including the facilitators. The way the processes were woven together, it was as if we all built the web together, following the facilitators lead. It made it very easy to go deeper into myself and access my truth.”

“Maggie and Jackie are naturals at this work.” Joanna Macy
