“Just as our pain for the world arises from our connectivity, so does our power.” - Joanna Macy
The Work that Reconnects is a set of group exercises, teachings and practices to help us align with the self-healing powers of the web of life and compost grief, fear and anger intoqualities that allow us to respond to the challenges of these times with care and integrity. As we move through both the dangers and possibilities we currently face as human beings, this work facilitates connection to our desires to be effective allies to both planet and people.

Sliding Scale Pricing: $65 - $300
What is sliding scale pricing and how does it work?
Sliding scale pricing provides a service or product with multiple price points. These price points are set to make the service or product accessible to people with different levels of income, so that financial resources need not be a barrier to a person’s ability to access a product or service. Community members can chose the price point that best reflects their ability pay for a product or service, based on their individual circumstances.
Our wish is to make this workshop as accessible as possible to all and to support a modest livelihood for the facilitators out of our love for planet earth and all her beings as well as the bodies of work upon which this workshop is based.
Please be mindful that if you purchase a price at the lowest end of the scale when you can truthfully afford the higher ticket prices, you are limiting access to those who truly need the gift of financial flexibility. Being honest with yourself and your financial situation when engaging with sliding scale practices grows strong and sustainable communities.
If the lowest income price point is beyond your reach and you would like to participate in this webinar, a scholarship is also available.
Higher Income Price: $300
Middle Income Price: $210
Lower Income Price: $65
Enrollment is limited to 12 participants.
