Event Description

As Joanna Macy writes, “Active Hope is not wishful thinking … Active Hope is a readiness to discover the strengths in ourselves and in others; a readiness to discover the reasons for hope and the occasions for love.” In this online retreat, we will move through the spiral of The Work That Reconnects with the understanding that we are all in this together! Through an exploration of our interdependence with all life, we will strengthen our resilience to engage with the climate crisis, upcoming elections, environmental and social injustice and turmoil. Join facilitator Kathleen Rude as we gather online in community and offline in self-reflection (with time outside if you're able) to hear what Earth is asking of us and to receive inspiration and healing for our weary, overwhelmed hearts and souls. In supportive community, we will honor our pain for the world, reconnect to active hope and find clarity around how we can play a part in the healing of our communities and our planet. This retreat includes experiential practices, time outside, inspirational readings and simple rituals. It’s engaging, invigorating and gives us tools for dealing with the challenges of living in difficult times. The cost of this online retreat is $150.
