Active Hope Within Climate Disruption

January 18 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm PST

What if we could make a difference? Do you live in despair, fear, and rage about climate disruption, ecosystem collapse, injustice, and political chaos? Your pain for the world comes from your love for the world. Use that love to empower your actions on behalf of our Earth. Joanna Macy’s Work That Reconnects teaches us to move from gratitude to honoring our pain, to seeing with new perspectives, and then going forth into action. This experiential worship will use exercises and ritual, in community, to share and honor our feelings about what is happening and our ideas about what we need to do. This will be an emotional and spiritual workshop. In these times, the living body of our Earth is under attack from our own industrial society. Simultaneously, a vital, creative recovery process is under way: The Great Turning. What helps us face the mess we’re in is the knowledge that each of us has something significant to offer. An oyster, in response to trauma, grows a pearl. We grow, and offer, our gift of Active Hope. The workshop is led by Lynn Fitz-Hugh, LMHC & Carolyn Treadway, ACSW. Both are therapists and trained by Joanna Macy. There is limited room in this workshop. Please register by emailing lynn@thurstonclimateaction.orghttps://www.facebook.com/events/431651834169439/
