Exploring the ‘Work That Reconnects’ for Hopeful Action on Climate Change

Exploring the ‘Work That Reconnects’ for Hopeful Action on Climate Change

Tuesday 30th May 19:00-21:00

We will use this interactive session to explore and increase our understanding of the philosophy behind Joanna Macy’s iconic climate action book ‘Active Hope’ and experiment and engage with some of her ‘Work That Reconnects’ exercises and practice.

The focus will be on offering an opportunity to consider the elements of grief, anger, sadness and helplessness around climate chaos that often overwhelm, and create space for additional feelings of love, joy, gratitude and hope, and explore using those emotions as a catalyst for positive action and change.

We will also be facilitating a special 50th Anniversary ‘Eco-Wellbeing, the Salisbury Centre and the next 50 Years’ workshop with Olga Bloemen on Sunday June 25th from 2-5 pm during our garden celebrations, which will also focus on the Work That Reconnects, so this is a really wonderful opportunity to begin to explore the material and the option of setting up a regular group for inspiration!

You don’t need to be available for the June workshop, but if you are it would be a wonderful way to bring some of our practice and reflections from the May 30th session to the afternoon session.
