The Spiral of The Work

The spiral of the work that reconnects moves through Gratitude to knowing our pain, seeing with new eyes and going forth. What's special about this body of knowledge is how the need to face and grieve what is happening on our earth is included as we move into active service. This is a crucial component to healthy activism as it allows us to recognise the love which is hidden under the grief, by releasing the grief this love can come forward and help us act in a healthy way with renewed energy. It incorporates many specific tools which are both playful and deeply moving.
