May 11th – 13th 2012: The Work That Reconnects

a residential weekend workshop to enliven and empower our response to global crisis
with Chris Johnstone (co-author, with Joanna Macy, of Active Hope)
and Lisbet Michelsen
at High Heathercombe in Devon

Does your heart sink when facing bad news about the world?
Would you like to strengthen your ability to give your best response?

This residential weekend workshop moves through the spiral of The Work That Reconnects, the inspiring empowerment approach developed by US author/activist Joanna Macy.

We apply insights and practices that help us harness the energy of our emotional responses rather than being overwhelmed by them.

We explore a ‘deep ecology’ perspective that deepens our sense of connectedness with life, so that we can open to a wider network of allies and support.

We support each other in developing a clearer vision of our unique contribution to the recovery of our world, and in identifying our next steps forward in this.

Practical details

We begin on Friday evening and continue till Sunday afternoon at 4pm.
Price: £195 full rate, including accommodation and food.
Concession or camping rate £170.

The High Heathercombe Centre is situated at 1250 feet in the Dartmoor National Park, adjoining the open moor and surrounding woodlands. The Centre is run on a charitable basis by the High Heathercombe Trust, and has a resident warden.
