A community event held by Extinction Rebellion Tweed Valley.
We are living through difficult times that have only gotten harder the last six months as we face regular new waves of social and environmental crises. In this time we are witnessing immense growing social injustices and the sixth mass extinction of life on Earth. Many of us feel called to act, and while political engagement is crucial, many are also asking, how do we sustain ourselves on this journey? How do we live with the fear, heartbreak and anger? How do we create a regenerative culture from within as we move toward a life-sustaining culture and society? How can we recognise the extent of the solutions needed if we cannot fully feel the depth of our despair?
ACTIVE HOPE AND RESILIENCE IN A TIME OF CRISIS
We build resilience when we come together and share our grief and our love for the world. To advocate and re-organise human society for the flourishing of life we ourselves must return again and again to the ground of our own aliveness. This workshop will offer experiential practices to support you in doing this. We will make space to mourn what is being lost and to rediscover the energy to take action. We prioritise restorative practices that nourish self and community. Although doing this kind of work online can be difficult we are not giving up on keeping the community connected in this difficult time.
The Work That Reconnects (WTR) www.workthatrecconects.org is an open-source body of work that has its roots in the teachings and experiential methods of Joanna Macy. It is a form of group work that uses experience-based activities to help participants connect with one another and with the intelligence, and self-healing powers, of life on Earth.
