Post Ecopsychology Conference Workshop
Molly Young Brown, M.A., M.Div and Constance Washburn M.A.
9:00 am to 3:00pm
Fort’s Barn, Petaluma (Details about location TBA)
We watch with horror as our world spirals into crisis and our nation into fear, hatred, and confusion. In this workshop we will share our passions, dreams, and anguish for the world, and reaffirm our love for the Earth and one another. Together we will seek the courage and capacity to stand up to the forces of divisiveness and greed, and help bring about a Great Turning to a Life Sustaining Society for future generations. We will address systemic racism and climate change, among other challenges.
The Work That Reconnects, pioneered by Joanna Macy, helps us to uncover and experience our innate connections with each other and the healing powers of the web of life. This highly experiential and interactive work draws perspectives and practices from systems thinking, deep ecology, and many spiritual traditions that reveal our inter-being through space and time. It reframes our pain for the world as evidence of our mutual belonging and hence our power to take action on behalf of life. It awakens stamina and buoyancy to live with full awareness of both the Great Turning and the Great Unraveling, and to embrace the uncertainty of this planet-time. The Spiral of the Work moves through Gratitude, Honoring Our Pain for the World, Seeing with New Eyes, and Going Forth, helping us identify the strengths and resources we can mobilize, in collaboration with others, to act for the sake of all beings.
