Transform your fear and burn out into empowerment and inspiration!
We live in challenging times. How can we respond and continue our work in the
world without burning out, numbing out or losing heart? We can choose to practice Active Hope.
Active Hope is about what we would love to see happen in the world. Active Hope is about becoming a participant in bringing about what we hope for. It is a practice, a way of living with purpose.
This ground-breaking workshop is designed for those who want and need a deeper sense of inspiration, hope and renewal to support their work in these troubling times.
This interactive experience is based on The Work that Reconnects, an innovative process developed by Joanna Macy, internationally acclaimed author, eco-philosopher and activist. The Work helps us transform fear and despair into inspiration and a sense of empowerment. Experience the healing power of gratitude, find compassion in honoring your pain for the world, embrace your connections with each other and with the self-healing powers in the web of life, and realize your potential to make a difference.
The Active Hope workshop includes experiential practices, movement, inspirational readings and teachings, and simple rituals. This work is engaging, invigorating and gives you tools for dealing with the challenges of living in difficult times.
“This gave me clarity as to what we can do in our own lives for the planet
and that every little bit in the form of new consciousness or action counts!”
Investment: Sliding scale $150 – $200. A few partial scholarships are available. Email to inquire.
