Vancouver's Leader in Transition toward Strong, Resilient, Complete Communities
Weekend workshop, May 2 &3, 2015
Stanley Park Ecology Centre, Coast Salish Territory, Vancouver, B.C.
Reconnecting to Life/Work that Reconnects workshops are transformative group experiences designed to enliven and deepen our motivations for creating a just and sustainable world.
Participants 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 group process, we celebrate the joy and beauty of life, open to our place within nature, and share witness to our full range of feelings about the challenges facing our troubled world.
Through dialogue, ritual, and contemplation, skilled and experienced facilitators invite us into new ways of seeing; encourage us to speak our truths and to find the creativity for bringing our gifts into the service of life.
In these times, when the urgency to stop the destruction is so great, this work brings us home to our fullest possibility.
“A very safe and enriching environment...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.”
“A life changing experience in opening the body, mind and spirit to the potential of who we are in relation to all other beings on this fragile planet we call home.”
“A time of nourishment and rejuvenation, a reclaiming of my personal power, a naming of my future direction and of experiencing immense gratitude to all beings.”
The Work That Reconnects is a pioneering form of group work developed by eco-philosopher Joanna Macy. It has helped many around the globe find insight, solidarity, and courage to act. This program, inspired by Joanna’s work and mentoring, also integrates additional experiences and influences.
