For several years, Pennsylvania Interfaith Power & Light has been offering practices from the book Active Hope: How to Face the Mess We’re in without Going Crazy by Joanna Macy and Chris Johnstone at our conferences, workshops, and virtually. We knew we were laying a firm foundation to build resilience and support for the coming climate crisis; we could not have anticipated how meaningful this work would be right now. Going around the Spiral of the Work allows people to rest in gratitude for mother earth; to honor their pain for the world and themselves as we go through this pandemic; to see with new and ancient eyes that what we are experiencing is part of the Great Unraveling and the Great Turning to a life sustaining society; and to Go Forth with a new vision for the future and a sense of community support.
This one-session event will walk through the outline and details of a 6-session, online book-study-practice series we have developed, and which we hope you will now offer either in-person (as circumstances allow) or virtually in your own settings and with your own audiences/groups.
This event is free and open to all – donations gratefully accepted.
