Event Description

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 into 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

“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

The Work That Reconnects is a pioneering form of group work developed by eco-philosopher Joanna Macy. It has helped
many thousands around the globe find insight, solidarity, and courage to act. Retreat facilitators, inspired by Joanna’s
work and mentoring, also integrate a wide range of diverse experiences and influences.
