Active Hope in Challenging Times

“If the world is to be healed through human efforts, I am convinced it will be by ordinary people, people whose love for this life is even greater than their fear.” Joanna Macy

We live in challenging times. The words ‘climate emergency’ and ‘biodiversity crisis’ have hit mainstream.

We’re facing this, as students, activists, health professionals, family members, community builders, earth lovers. At times it’s not easy. We may experience difficult emotions such as grief, despair and overwhelm, which can make it a challenge to keep on doing what we do.
So how can we respond and continue our work without burning out, numbing out or losing heart? We can practice “Active Hope”.
Based on the innovative set of processes developed by Joanna Macy – author, ecophilosopher and activist – this workshop is designed to nourish us, foster resilience and strengthen our commitment.

Through connecting to ourselves, others and the web of life, we can pull forth creativity, inspiration and strength.

This is a not-for-profit event. Proceeds will go towards forest protection. Cash at door or buy tickets through RESEED: https://www.reseed.net.au/shop/

Bring something to share for lunch and comfortable clothes for moving around.
