When we stand and sing together, creatively united within the principles of respect, truth speaking, inclusivity and connection, relationships are strengthened for navigating present realities together.

 

“Just as our pain for the world arises from our connectivity, so does our power.” - Joanna Macy

 

This workshop will combine music and the teachings of Joanna Macy to:

  • resource you with tools and nourishment for the uncertainties and possibilities of these times;   

  • help metabolise grief, anger and fear into courage and creativity;   

  • explore singing as a source of  rejuvenation, healing and connection;   

  • free ourselves from the illusion of separation and experience the truth that we are not alone;   

  • gain insight into new and ancient ways of living in community with justice and compassion;    

  • cultivate energy and resilience for action;   

  • clarify your next steps in supporting planetary healing, including self-care.

The Work that Reconnects is a set of group exercises, teachings and practices to help us align with the self-healing powers of the web of life and compost grief, fear and anger into qualities that allow us to respond to the challenges of these times with care and integrity. As we move through both the dangers and possibilities we currently face as human beings, this work facilitates connection to our desires to be effective allies to both planet and people.

Sliding Scale Pricing:  $65 - $300

Sliding Scale Pricing:  $65 - $300

What is sliding scale pricing and how does it work? 

Sliding scale pricing provides a service or product with multiple price points. These price points are set to make the service or product accessible to people with different levels of income, so that financial resources need not be a barrier to a person’s ability to access a product or service. Community members can chose the price point that best reflects their ability pay for a product or service, based on their individual circumstances.   

Our wish is to make this workshop as accessible as possible to all and to support a modest livelihood for the facilitators out of our love for planet earth and all her beings as well as the bodies of work upon which this workshop is based. 

Please be mindful that if you purchase a price at the lowest end of the scale when you can truthfully afford the higher ticket prices, you are limiting access to those who truly need the gift of financial flexibility. Being honest with yourself and your financial situation when engaging with sliding scale practices grows strong and sustainable communities. 

If the lowest income price point is beyond your reach and you would like to participate in this webinar, a scholarship is also available.
