This workshop will weave together the Work That Reconnects, engaged buddhism and modern psychology to move participants through despair, anxiety, grief to empowerment and alignment with the resilient, regenerative powers of life. Our inspiration is compost – how do we transform self and world amidst the churning of global crisis, urgency, emergency, loss and grief?
The weekend will run from 9am on Saturday April 18 to 3pm on Sunday April 19.
This workshop will take place on Darkingjung Country. We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land and pay our respects to elders past, present and emerging.
