“The central purpose of the Work That Reconnects is to help people uncover and experience their innate connections with each other and with the systemic, self-healing powers of the web of life, so that they may be enlivened
and motivated to play their part in creating a sustainable civilization."
Joanna Macy

The Work That Reconnects is a form of transformative groupwork comprised of exercises, meditation, reflection, and discussion developed by Joanna Macy. It aims to reconnect us, empower us to reclaim our lives, our communities, and our planet by providing tools and practices that offer insights into how we can work together, open our hearts and build a truly life sustaining society. 

During this six-day experiential workshop on the beautiful Holy Isle, we will use a form of transformative group work to give us energy and focus to respond to the current challenges faced by our planet. A retreat is a powerful way to connect more deeply with others who share our concerns, under the supportive guidance of experienced facilitators. We weave our way from gratitude into honouring our pain for the world, and then find new and empowering perspectives that inform our going forth. 

There will be time to roam the island alone or with others, and will include opportunities to practice mindfully being through guided meditation, taiji, yoga, songs and music. The natural and nourishing beauty of Holy Island will help to inspire and strengthen our ability to keep moving forward with active hope and positive resolve

A previous participant summarised it as “challenging (but never too much), moving, thought-provoking and energising!”

The retreat starts on 28th May 2020, after supper and departs on 3rd June after breakfast
