On Thursday, April 18, at 9am PT, Midday ET, 5pm BST we will be partnering with the Transition Network to bring you a web chat featuring Joanna Macy and Chris Johnstone. The host and moderator for the event will be Rob Hopkins. If you have questions for the speakers please put them as a comment below or tweet them to Rob at @robintransition. Joanna Macy and Chris Johnstone are the co-authors of Active Hope – How to Face the Mess We’re in Without Going Crazy.? Here’s how Joanna and Chris frame the web chat:
“Climate change, the depletion of oil, economic upheaval and mass extinction together create a planetary emergency of overwhelming proportions. Joanna and Chris’s book Active Hope is about how to strengthen our capacity to face this crisis so that we can respond with unexpected resilience and creative power. Drawing on decades of teaching an empowerment approach known as the Work That Reconnects, they guide us through a transformational process informed by mythic journeys, modern psychology, spirituality and holistic science. This process equips us with tools to face the mess we’re in and play our role in the collective transition, or Great Turning, to a life sustaining society”.
I totally agree with you J. C. and with the Law of Attraction you get more of what you focus on, so if we want to see a peaceful and harmonious world, it's better to visualize that scenario, rather than watching the media rehash dark events.
Consequently, trying to search for meaning in these events isn't healthy either. Things happen in the world that are beyond our understanding. Stay centered in your heart, express compassion and know that it isn't selfish to distract yourself with the things that bring you joy. For anyone following the Abraham/Hicks teachings, this is finding joy will ultimately bring joy and peace to the world.

I will be teaching a class on transformation and consciousness in February, called GESTALT AS A WAY OF LIFE. It will be 5 Monday evenings at my home. I keep the class small so we can get to know one another as we learn some fun and exciting new ways of living more fully. If you are interested you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 656 6207 and I'll send you a flyer and answer any questions you might have. Special discounts. The class is also listed in the Whatcom Folk School Winter Program.
If you can post these workshops under TW Events they will show up in our weekly email to all TW members. Let me know if you have any questions about how to post them...
