3:00 | The Work that Reconnects, Moving from Despair to Joy

Draw Strength & Courage From the Web of Life, with Lynne Iser and Rabbi Mordechai Liebling

(image) We are at a moment in history when many of us feel both the great love that we have for our amazing, beautiful world – and our profound despair about the state of this same precious world.

This dynamic, interactive workshop is based on the teachings of Joanna Macy, who has inspired many thousands of people to engage wholeheartedly in working for a life-sustaining society, turning despair in the face of social and ecological crises into constructive, collaborative action. We will use exercises and practices drawn from deep ecology and systems theory to explore our gratitude, grief, and curiosity along with our own unique gifts to help us reconnect with all life, Earth and others on our planet — to sustain our activism and give us hope.

Lynne Iser, MPH is a local elder activist & organizer who teaches deep ecology, conscious aging, and community building as she works with others to create a thriving and just world for future generations.

Rabbi Mordechai Liebling is founder and director of the Social Justice Organizing Program at the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College; and leads workshops and retreats on the intersection of sustainability, social justice, and spirituality.
