“Enter the breathing that is more than your own.” R.M. Rilke
“If we surrendered to Earth’s intelligence, we could rise up rooted, like trees.” R.M. Rilke
When we rediscover our mutual belonging in the living body of Earth, vision and strength arise for the healing of our world. A spirituality of radical interconnectedness helps us then to meet the risks and dangers of confronting the military industrial complex and its organized forms of greed, hatred, and delusion.
The Work That Reconnects, through teachings and practices drawn from deep ecology, systems theory, and the Buddha Dharma, awakens us to the power of the Universe working through us. In this evening workshop Joanna will take us around the Spiral of the Work. The four stations of the Spiral are: Coming from Gratitude, Honoring Our Pain for the World, Seeing with New Eyes, and Going Forth. Come on time, wear loose clothing, and be prepared to fall in love again with life.
