Active Hope TrainingActive Hope the book is really a tool to support Active Hope the practice.
When we do Active Hope, we:
- Take in a clear view of reality
- Identify our vision for what we hope will happen
- Take active steps to help bring that vision about.
We can apply this to any situation, whether in our personal lives or our planetary context. We can also train ourselves to get better at it, seeking out insights and practices that help bring out our very best response.
The Work That Reconnects is an empowerment process designed to strengthen our ability to act for the wellbeing of life on Earth. You can find out about Work That Reconnects workshops run by Joanna Macy here.
Chris Johnstone, Barbara Ford and Madeleine Mauwer also run Active Hope trainings via distance learning. They run for six weeks, with groups starting on January 29th 2014 and on April 7th 2014. For more details see this link.
