Joanna Macy In Guelph: The Great Turning

The Work That Reconnects is the powerful experiential process developed by Joanna and her colleagues in working with international groups over the years. Its purpose is to empower us to reclaim those connections that are our birthright, but which, in our society, binomo have been all but forgotten: our connection to the Earth, to the web of life, to community, and to ourselves.

The Great Turning is a name for the essential adventure of our time: the shift from the industrial growth society to a life-sustaining civilization. A revolution is now underway because people are realizing that our needs can be met without destroying our world.

Although we cannot know yet if this turning will take hold in time for humans and other complex life forms to survive, it is proceeding. And it is gaining momentum, through the actions of countless individuals and groups around the world. Future generations, if there is to be a livable world for them, will look back at the epochal transition we are making to a life-sustaining society. To see this as the larger context of our lives clears our vision and summons our courage.

We look forward to having you join us.
