Roots of Resilience in Uncertain Times begins November 11

About this Event

This class meets on five Wednesdays 9-11am (Pacific time). November 11, 18, 25, December 2, 9. Please plan to attend all the dates.

It’s heartbreaking to remain conscious in our crazy times. Everywhere we turn we see the Great Unraveling of our society. Between systemic racism, the pandemic, global climate change, and poverty, etc, it’s clear we can’t continue with Business As Usual. The fear, grief, anger, and helplessness we feel can be unbearable because it’s not just our personal pain: it’s the collective pain of all life on Earth. When we come together and liberate our natural feelings about our world, we realize our radical interconnectedness and become part of the Earth healing herself. It is essential that we do this work now. This precise moment is an opportunity for unprecedented transformation, a time to root into the wisdom of our living planet.

The Work That Reconnects offers practices to reawaken our innate bonds with each other and our sacred living Earth to guide us in the Great Turning toward a life-sustaining future. Pioneered by root teacher Joanna Macy, the Work That Reconnects draws on ancient spiritual traditions, deep ecology, and system thinking.

In this webinar series, we grow our resilience in these uncertain times. We will move through the Spiral of the Work that Reconnects, beginning with Gratitude, then Honoring Our Pain for the World, Seeing with New Eyes, and Going Forth. We will connect to our ancestors and descendants in “Deep Time.” We call in Community Organizers, Teachers, Healers, Warriors, Parents, Spiritual leaders, and everyone working in service of life. Join us in exploring and responding to the complex nature of our times.
