About the Event

How can we face the climate emergency and this unfolding planetary moment with all its intensity and uncertainty?  How can we stay awake to the suffering and the beauty with clear eyes and an open heart?

Together, we can strengthen resilience as we deepen our capacity to act for a just and sustainable world. This daylong workshop will be experiential and interactive, offering a roadmap to metabolize pain into courage, compassion and creativity—qualities that allow us to respond with wisdom and integrity.

Based on Joanna Macy’s “Work that Reconnects”, this introductory workshop will offer practices and group activities that help people discover and experience their innate connections with each other and the self-healing powers of the web of life, transforming despair and overwhelm into grounded and inspired action.

When:  Saturday, September 19th, 9:30 am - 4:30 pm (rain date, September 20th)

$50 per person

Sliding Scale Pricing:  $30 - $80

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 webinar accessible as possible to all and to support a modest livelihood for the facilitators out of our love for planet earth and the body of work upon which this Webinar 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 workshop, a scholarship is also available.  


Enrollment is limited to 12 participants

Facilitator: Robin Macdonald is a Communal Grief Care Facilitator, Restorative Justice worker, writer and Yasodhara Yoga teacher.  She lives on unceded Algonquin territory in western Quebec.
