Event description

Description

The Work that Reconnects is a framework developed by eco-philosopher Joanna Macy. This framework intersects deep ecology, psychology, and spirituality. Join Refugia Retreats for a one-day introduction to the framework as we invite participants into a space where they can be more reflective. This workshop will engage individuals by examining this unique time in history while moving through four stages: gratitude, honouring our pain, seeing with new eyes, and going forth.
