Resilience and Active Hope: Introduction workshop

I am inviting you to join us for an energizing workshop with like-minded people. We will look at how we can become more resilient to act for a more sustainable world.

During the workshop you will strengthen your capacity to respond with Active Hope. Active Hope means that you are not waiting for others to take steps – you are discovering the strength and possibilities in yourself and actively creating the situation that you would like to see happening.

We will come together to create hope and resilience through connection.

A space for everyone to listen and to speak.

A space to reconnect with ourselves, each other and our beautiful world.

How will we work together?

We will be building our resilience through the four steps of the Work That Reconnects. The Work that Reconnects is based on the teachings of Joanna Macy and her colleagues, and created on the principles of Buddhism, general systems theory and deep ecology.

The four steps of this Work will enable us to feel our gratitude, speak our truth, see with new eyes and go forth with renewed energy and wisdom. In a warm and trustworthy atmosphere with a small group, there will be place for everyone to reflect and speak their mind.

You will come out stronger

After the workshop you will have a much clearer sense of what you are standing for and what you would like to do. You have connected with people who also want to take action which creates community and strengthens your commitment. You will see the world with new eyes and spot new possibilities. You can go forward with active hope and can take steps to actively create the situation that you would like to see happening in the world.

Dates of the workshop:

  • Saturday 20th March, 10:30 – 12:00 (CET time)
  • Tuesday 30th March, 19:30 – 21:00 (CET time)

All you need to participate is the wish to get connected, access to the internet and a webcam. You will get the link to the online meeting environment after you registered for the workshop.

This workshop is an introduction to Active Hope. I would like to give the opportunity to as many people as possible to get to know the Work that Reconnects. If you would like to support this work with a donation, then your contribution will benefit others who can also take part in these workshops!

    If the world is to be healed through human efforts,

    I am convinced it will be by ordinary people,

    people whose love for this life is even greater than their fear.
