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 23rd March 2014
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.

Her work focuses on ensuring every voice is heard and decisions supporting profound and sustainable change are made using innovative forms of facilitation.
