Coming Back To Life


Revolutionary Connection

Stepping into Joanna Macy’s “Work That Reconnects”

2020 Dates TBA

Facilitated by Ruby Perry

If, as Joanna Macy says, the most radical thing any of us can do at this time is to be fully present to what is happening in the world, then how do we ignite the courage, compassion and solidarity that we need? Coming back to life means to be willing to wake up together, to be fully present with all the pain and the beauty, as well as the contradictions and elegant harmonies that the world offers.

This is an introduction to Joanna’s work. We will dive into the practices developed over 40 years in collaboration with people all over the world. Perhaps we need each other to truly come awake. Please join us as we work our way through the Spiral that is the foundation of The Work That Reconnects.

“When people of the future look back at this historical moment,
they will see more clearly than we can now
how revolutionary our actions were.
Perhaps they’ll call it the time of
The Great Turning.”
– Joanna Macy
