We live in challenging times. Many of us are terribly busy and spend most of our days in buildings and vehicles. We are overwhelmed with both information and responsibility. As a result it is hard not to burn out, become numb or lose heart. Fortunately a powerful source of balance and sustenance is available to each of us in the natural world and the wonders and resources that await us there.
This ground-breaking workshop is designed to invoke a sense of inspiration, hope and renewal by exploring and affirming our connections with nature. It is an interactive experience featuring innovative processes based on the work of Joanna Macy, internationally acclaimed author, eco-philosopher and activist. Workshop time will include experiential practices, movement, inspirational readings and teachings, as well as simple rituals. The work is engaging, invigorating and provides practical and accessible tools for dealing with the challenges of life in the 21st century.
Presenting are Mark Steiner and Marilyn Stoner of Cultivating Connections who both serve as official facilitators of the Work That Reconnects. Presenting since 1991, Mark’s specialties include creation spirituality, environmental spirituality and the universe story. A recently retired psychotherapist, Marilyn specializes in guided imagery, creativity and the spirituality of nature.
Cultivating Connections is a grassroots, nonprofit contributing to the creation of a just and sustainable community by nurturing and celebrating our connections with each other and with our world.
