I am in a conversation with some people in Skagit and in Seattle who are facilitating Joanna Macy style work, about possibly doing something up here this fall. I am wondering who in this group may have experienced some work with her, and how much interest there would be.
For people who are not familiar with her work, Joanna Macy (a Buddhist and activist from way back - clearly a wise elder in our times) has created a very powerful process for transforming the feelings of helplessness and grief about what is happening in our world, into a sense of visionary empowerment.
We could potentially have a Friday night/Saturday day workshop that could spur an ongoing group.
Any interest? questions? reflections?
I got busy and dropped the ball on this idea for a few weeks, but I would really like to see a workshop happen here. Is anyone interested in having a meeting sometime in the next 2 to 3 weeks to explore this idea? I would love to invite Lois Canwright (who would be facilitating the workshop) to join us. Please respond if you would like to participate in a planning/exploration meeting, and say when you could be available. Thanks.
