terry_anne_Symens-Bucher_IMG_5067_310If your heart is breaking in the face of “the Great Unraveling” of ecological, economic, political and social systems, come join us for a brave and beautiful journey as we dare to see we are not separate from the suffering of our world. In the time of his great unraveling, Francis of Assisi chose to turn toward gratitude, singing a song of praise known as the Canticle of Creation. Joanna Macy’s Work That Reconnects invites us to choose gratitude and to enter into “the Great Turning,” the movement to a life-sustaining society that she calls “the essential adventure of our time.” 

At the end of his life, Francis of Assisi told his followers: “I have done that which was mine to do, may Christ teach you yours.” One of the most urgent needs of our time is to discover “what is ours to do.” 

Using a Franciscan perspective and the Work That Reconnects, we will use experiential practices, poetry, ritual, prayer, song, and silence to guide our journey through the four stages of the Spiral of the Work That Reconnects.
