About the Event
“Just as our pain for the world arises from our connectivity, so does our power.” - Joanna Macy
How do we cope with a pandemic, climate change, mass extinction, personal and societal loss and grief?
In order to feel our loyalties to old-growth forests, migratory pathways, marginalized communities, joy and delight, we must feel our pain for the world. In order to sustain ourselves as change makers, we must understand and attend to the needs of grief.
The process you will experience helps to transcend the many boundaries and silos that often divide and isolate us and bring people together in the collective work of healing and transformation. Based on The Work That Reconnects (WTR), pioneered by Joanna Macy, we invite you to gather, honour and witness your pain for the world, thus liberating energy for change.
Cost: Sliding scale pricing, $40 - $10
