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? You can find the answers for yourself when you experience Active Hope.

This ground-breaking workshop, based on The Work That Reconnects, 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 workshop is being held on beautiful land outside of Lyons, in the mountains, adjacent to national forest. Our intention is to spend as much time outside on the land as weather permits!

The Work that Reconnects is 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, time outdoors, movement, song, 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!”
