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 23rd March 2014

Time: 10am—4pm

Location: Carlton (details on registration)

Cost: pay as you can – this workshop is our gift to you and the Earth, consider how you might like to return that gift.

RSVP: kiri@ by Thursday 20th March 2014

About the facilitators:

Kiri Bear has worked in the community sector for over 10 years in preventing violence against women. Over that time she has also travelled a spiritual path that has taken her through goddess archetypes, buddhism and deep ecology not to mention the standard human experiences of grief, despair and numbing. 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.
