Upcoming Events

Cultivating Active Hope: A Practice Group & Book Study of Joanna Macy’s Active Hope
Begins May 20, for 12 weeks – online
Jess Serrante and Shea Riester
Jess and Shea will create a space where participants can put Active Hope‘s lessons into practice as embodied and living wisdom. “This work comes straight from my heart as a response to what l’m learning many of us want and need in this intense moment in history….” (Jess)
Jess facilitated a WTR workshop in Brooklyn attended by a New York Times reporter. The result: a feature article, Apocalypse Got You Down? Maybe this Will Help: Searching for a cure for my climate crisis grief. Shea was a member of the first Earth Leadership Cohort, and a co-facilitator at Interhelp’s fall Gathering in 2017.

Active Hope:
Finding courage in facing climate change in a pandemic
An online experiential workshop
Sunday May 24, 1:00-4:00
Led by Verne McArthur and Daniel Kieval
The challenges of climate change are hard enough. Now we are in the midst of an unprecedented pandemic. How do we find our way through? This workshop offers an emotional and spiritual path that enables us to transform fear and despair into a sense of empowerment and clear action.
Through the facilitators – Verne in his 70s and Daniel in his 30s – we are able take an intergenerational look at this time of profound change. Verne is a long-time WTR facilitator. Daniel is a member of the Earth Leadership community and serves on the Interhelp Council.
