Through silence, song, and poetry, as well as personal sharing and interactive exercises with nature and each other, we will grow our capacity to take part in the healing of our world. Here, in deep refreshment, we meet the soul's purpose. Each of our lives is played against a backdrop of war-making, hunger, extinctions and increasing climate chaos. The love that binds us to the living body of Earth shows us how to respond to the suffering of our time in ways that bring courage, creativity, and community.
Our days together will be informed by the Work That Reconnects, developed by Joanna over the last 35 years. Acting at the interface between social change and spiritual breakthrough, it draws from living systems theory as well as from ancient teachings of the world's religions. Wear loose clothing with layers for indoors and out, and come prepared to fall in love again with life.
