“Active Hope is not wishful thinking. Active Hope is not waiting to be rescued by some savior. Active Hope is waking up to the beauty of life on whose behalf we can act. We belong to this world. The web of life is calling us forth at this time and we are here to play our part. Active Hope is a readiness to discover the strengths in ourselves and in others; a readiness to discover the reasons for hope and the occasions for love.” ~ Joanna Macy
In this retreat, we will move through the spiral of The Work That Reconnects with a rich exploration of our interdependence to all life. We will invite fellow species to speak through us in the beloved ceremony, The Council of All Beings. We will spend time in the woods and prairies to hear what Earth is inviting us to embrace and to receive inspiration and healing for our weary, overwhelmed hearts and souls. In supportive community, we will honor our pain for the world, reconnect to active hope and find clarity around how we can play a part in the healing of our beautiful planet.
This retreat includes experiential practices, mask making, movement, inspirational readings, and simple rituals. It’s engaging, invigorating and gives you tools for dealing with the challenges of living in difficult times.
