Event description

Description

Based on the work of Joanna Macy, this participatory workshop on Active Hope is based on over four decades of community work with thousands of people around the world. It is designed to help you transform fear and despair into inspiration and a sense of empowerment.

We will explore gratitude, anger, grief, and hope and move into a deeper understanding of how to create our best collective future. We will end the workshop with exercises to help us support one another as we go forth and work towards a more sustainable, just, and peaceful world where all beings can thrive.

As an added bonus, attending this workshop makes you eligible to fill out a brief application to be considered for seed money for environmental/community projects. Mini-grants are provided by The Four Directions Fund at Georgia Interfaith Power and Light.

This workshop is led by Beth Remmes who is a Facilitator for The Work that Reconnects, is on the Board of Georgia Interfaith Power & Light, and is a member of Unity Worldwide Ministry‘s Earth Care Team.

Cost: a $5 love offering

“A spirituality that is only private and self-absorbed, one devoid of an authentic political and social consciousness, does little to halt the suicidal juggernaut of history. On the other hand, an activism that is not purified by profound spiritual and psychological self-awareness and rooted in divine truth, wisdom, and compassion will only perpetuate the problem it is trying to solve, however righteous its intentions. When, however, the deepest and most grounded spiritual vision is married to a practical and pragmatic drive to transform all existing political, economic, and social institutions, a holy force – the power of wisdom and love in action – is born. This force I define as Sacred Activism.” - Andrew Harvey
