Seeds of Hope will be offering a series of monthly gatherings

Description: Seeds of Hope will be offering a series of monthly gatherings to help us face the ecological, social, political, and cultural challenges of our times with centeredness, depth, presence, vision, creativity, and connectedness, so that we can be agents of evolutionary change in these times. We will be drawing on the deep wisdom of Joanna Macy and her associates, whose “Work That Reconnects” process has helped many thousands of people reconnect with their own depths, with the earth, and with others, so they can embody the kind of change our world needs.

Each of our next four Seeds of Hope gatherings will take us through the Work That Reconnects spiral, and will go deeply into one of the four movements:
1. Nov. 3--Opening our hearts in gratitude
2. Dec. 1--Honoring our pain
3. Jan. 5-- Seeing with new eyes
4. Feb. 2--Going forth with vision and a sense of call

We will begin on November 3 with a deep dive into radical gratitude. Radical gratitude is the well that we can draw from to keep us nourished, centered, connected, and open, come what may. This session is titled, “The Surprising Nature of Gratitude–A Tool for Our Times.”

We will meet 1:30-3:30 Sunday, November 3, at 1010 East Ave. (the red brick building immediately west of Asbury United Methodist Church). As always, this is an open group. But we strongly encourage you to make an effort to attend each of the four sessions in this series if you can. Each movement of The Work That Reconnects is an important part of the process of meeting fractured times as whole and whole-ing people. But if you do can’t attend every session, the ones you do attend will be very valuable in their own right.

If you plan to attend on November 3, please RSVP by clicking on “Enroll” using this link: https://connect.pachamama.org/group/rochester/event/seeds-hope-surprising-nature-gratitude-tool-our-times. Enrollment is free. And feel free to share this with others.
