Active Hope: The Work that Reconnects


Saturday, November 9, 2019 (All day)


6 Chestnut St
Boston , MA


We live in an extraordinary moment on Earth. As we witness unprecedented destruction of ecological, biological, and social systems, we can feel overwhelmed by anger, fear and other difficult emotions. How can we remain resilient, creative, and empowered to act for the healing of our irreplaceable world?

The Work That Reconnects, developed by teacher/activist Joanna Macy and others, draws on deep ecology, systems theory, and engaged Buddhism.  Practices include group meditations, ritual, conversation in pairs, dance, and song.  We will explore spiritual, emotional and intellectual aspects of envisioning and creating a life-sustaining society.

This experiential workshop will be facilitated by members of the Boston-area Work That Reconnects community.

More details are available on the Beacon Hill Friends House website.
