“Be joyful, even though you’ve considered all the facts!” – Wendell Berry
The momentous environmental changes and social disruptions that are occurring offer a profound opportunity for spiritual growth as we do the work needed to meet them. This crisis situation can be experienced in very different ways by younger and older folks. Daniel, in his 30s, and Verne, in his 70s, will co-facilitate the approach of Joanna Macy—over 50 years in the making—called The Work That Reconnects to explore the challenges, opportunities and spiritual openings offered by the present moment. Humor, song, and short outdoor activities will be part of this process. With the fresh perspectives we will explore ways we can heal the planet and create a sustainable way of life.
