About the Event
In the Work That Reconnects, “Deep Time” refers to a sense of time that extends far beyond our lifetime. It includes all that has gone before – that has shaped us and our world – and a sense of how our actions now will shape the future. Deep Time work arose to correct the current human focus on short-term goals such as the economic quarter, which tends to trap people in a fragmented present, cut off from the past and the future.
Deep Time activities:
· Help restore what our ancestors experienced - the companionship of past and future generations.
· Support alignment with longer ecological rhythms such as the rhythms of the seasons
· Bolster resilience
· tap into sources of strength and wisdom that lie within and around us.
· Refresh our minds and offer perspective on the immediate challenges of our time
· Stimulate vision and creativity
· Inspire responsibility towards those not yet born.
Cultivating Climate Courage in Community workshops are designed as maintenance practices for resilience. Each workshop will be different. Register for one or both (this date and February 10th).
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT?
· connection with fellow humans who share similar cares, dreams and concerns for earth

· a respectful, curious, and nurturing space for community

The Work that Reconnects:
Developed by Joanna Macy and updated over the past five decades with collaborators around the world, this group work is known as the Work that Reconnects. The process combines teachings and practices that help people transform grief or paralysis in the face of ecological and social challenges into energy for constructive, collaborative action.
Robin Macdonald is a spiritually-rooted facilitator, moving at the intersections of social justice, earth care, spirituality and mental health. Part of the Scottish-Irish diaspora living on Turtle Island, Robin is a restorative justice practitioner, communal grief and Work that Reconnects facilitator, Yasodhara Yoga teacher and writer. Core to her work is the role of community in healing and thriving.
