What is life asking of us now? How do we build the resilience to hold the intensity of these times and participate more fully in the larger life of the world?

There is great power in being present to the truth of our experience. Right now, we have an unprecedented opportunity to create profound changes in our lives and in our world. Each of us is invited to let go of conditioned ideas of how our life “should” be and discover a new story, a soul-level story, that allows us to experience a deeper intimacy with life, and to live a life that feels more aligned, more fulfilling, and contributes more fully to our world.

This is our moment. It’s time to summon our collective regenerative power and access our ability to more wisely navigate the turmoil of these times. It begins with being fully present our current experience.

The work we will do together is inspired by Spiritual Psychology and Deep Ecology, through the spiral of The Work That Reconnects: a deeply engaging and interactive body of work, created by eco-philosopher & deep ecologist Joanna Macy, and designed to help people discover and experience their innate connections with each other and the self-healing powers of the web of life, transforming despair and overwhelm into inspired, collaborative action.
