A “Work that Reconnects” Retreat – Feb 10th -11th, 2018 at Providence Farm
Have the past year (or years) left you overwhelmed and grieving in the face of the unraveling of our world – the climate crisis, species extinction, violent conflict, increasing inequality? I’m pleased to be working with Transition Cowichan and the Cowichan Estuary Nature Centre to bring Jackie Larkin and Maggie Ziegler back to the Cowichan Valley to lead a two-day “Work That Reconnects – Reconnecting to Life” Retreat – a time for connection and renewal.
Maggie and Jackie – educators, activists and facilitators who’ve trained with eco-Buddhist philosopher Joanna Macy — have co-facilitated this experiential process for seventeen years.
Rooted in a pioneering form of group work developed by Joanna Macy, this workshop/retreat will integrate a wide range of ideas and experiential processes, as well as time in nature. Participants will be supported to engage heart, mind and spirit in the task of renewing our connection to ourselves, our community and all life on earth.
“The Work that Reconnects” emerges from the historical movements for social justice and for environmental sustainability as well as from spiritual traditions that honour the earth as sacred. It draws on the ideas and processes of deep ecology, systems theory and modern science.
Through experiencing our full range of feelings about our planetary crisis and deepening our understanding about our connection to all life, we can find courage and resilience to support ourselves and each other through these challenging times – and find meaningful and nourishing ways to engage in the work that is needed.
This two-day non-residential retreat on Feb 10th-11th is $140 per person. Some partial bursaries are available. Space is limited so registration is required. We ask that participants bring their lunches. Coffee, tea and healthy snacks will be provided. For information and registration contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Consider joining us. If you need a place to stay, billeting can be arranged.
