A Work that Reconnects workshop at the Chillingham Community Centre on the 23rd of May Time: 8.30am-4.30pm.
“We are living through difficult times, 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?
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 embodied and experiential practices to support you in doing this. We will make space to give gratitude for what we have, mourn what is being lost; take a deep time lens at the unfolding and to rediscover the energy to take action. We prioritise restorative practices that nourish self and community.
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.
