The Work that Reconnects, based on the pioneering work of Joanna Macy, is a perspective-changing, life-affirming set of practices that help us face and feel our deepest, most healing responses to the world's crises. This workshop will offer the "7th Generation" practice, through which we can reclaim the energy for action that is thwarted when we put our emotional responses on the back burner. We invite you to reopen to your inherent sense of interconnectedness with humans, other species and as an integral part of 'life in earth,’ and then head into the rest of the Front Range Bioneers weekend with new inspiration and vision of your part in the healing of the world. Presented by Belinda Griswold and Sherry Ellms. Advance registration requested.  Advance registration required for field trips and workshop intensives.  Pre-register IN THE EVENTBRITE REGISTRATION SYSTEM* by October 20th.  First-come, first-serve.  Limited capacity.  *Signing up to attend this on the SCHED system does not complete your registration and save you a spot.  ADVANCE REGISTRATION IS CLOSED AND THIS SESSION IS FULL!
