NEWSFLASH: We’ve had very low interest in this workshop (probably because of the clash with Buddha Touched the Earth) but we’re not cancelling, oh no, we are going with the flow. My cofacilitator, Linette, is going to bring the flow game and we are going to use the time to ask some big questions and do some deep reflecting, feel free to join us, upstairs at Friends of the Earth in Collingwood.
Reigniting hope and sustaining action in the face of crisis, an experiential workshop.
Take a day out from the grind of making social change to connect with like minded people and reignite your passion. The work that reconnects gives us space to feel difficult emotions in a supportive environment and allow hope to arise.
The Work that Reconnects, also known as ‘despair and empowerment’ work, was developed by Buddhist peace activist and environmentalist Joanna Macy.
Date: Sunday 29th September 2013
Cost: by donation.
RSVP: kiri@ humansarenature.com by Friday 20th September 2013
About the facilitators:

In 2007 she completed a Master’s thesis in religion and theology focusing on ecospirituality.
Linette Harriott’s facilitation skills have been built over 26 years of working in the community sector. Her work focuses on ensuring every voice is heard and decisions supporting profound and sustainable change are made using innovative forms of facilitation. Linette‘s passion is exploring the intersections of power and control in relation to gender, age, sexuality, ability, culture and class using a human rights framework.
