The Work that Reconnects is a transformative educational approach that focuses on re-connecting with self, other, and the rest of the natural world. This work was developed by deep ecologist and Buddhist scholar, Joanna Macy, as a way of inviting participants to experience our interconnectedness in the web of life. Humans are a part of the natural world, but we often think and act as though we are separate. Embracing our interconnection with nature benefits both humans and the non-human world.

The Work That Reconnects is based on a spiral model, in which individuals reconnect with gratitude, by recognizing what they appreciate about the world; honour challenges, by admitting what they find difficult or fearful about the condition of the world; learn to see with new eyes, by recognizing other world views: and by commiting to going forth with intention. This work can enrich people, both personally and professionally, motivating them to play their part in creating a sustainable civilization.

This workshop has been offered for school district Professional Development Days, and can be tailored to the needs of your specific work place or private group. It is also appropriate for mental health and other non-profit agencies
