Work That Reconnects Free Intro Session
An introduction to the work of Joanna Macy and colleagues--The Work That Reconnects--to support resilience in times of crisis.
About this event
Hosted and facilitated by Anna Swisher, a Work That Reconnects facilitator, mentor, and community activist in Ireland. This event serves as an introduction to the Work That Reconnects (WTR). It will be useful for anyone wanting to learn more about the work, and experience it for themselves. This also serves as an introduction for the 3-month group beginning in February. This event is free of charge, though you will have the option of making a donation to support facilitators and tech support.
Based in the teachings of Joanna Macy, the WTR has roots in Living Systems Theory, Deep Ecology, and non-dual spirituality. The WTR is a collection of practices that help us to re-discover our humanity again and again; it aids us in navigating disorienting times by connecting to our care for Life, tending our relationships with each other, welcoming challenging emotions as fuel, and empowering us to use the resources we already have to act on behalf of life. This work is about cultivating RESILIENCE in challenging times.
In this introductory workshop we will briefly cover the history, foundations, and principles of the work. We will explore the "spiral": The model which is used to navigate the Work. We will look together at what "resilience" means, and how we might go about cultivating it. We will engage in some basic practices from the work which will enable participants to have a felt experience of it, and to leave this session with some inspiration and ideas relevant to their own life.
The group will be interactive, nourishing, and inspiring.
This event is free of charge. Donations are gratefully accepted to support facilitation and tech support. You will have the option of adding a donation when you register.
