The Work That Reconnects Online
Join us for a special virtual sustainability event, The Work That Reconnects, based on the teachings of Joanna Macy* and hosted by Madeleine Charney, Research Services Librarian for Sustainability. Zoom link will be emailed to registrants the day before the event.
Explore a spiral journey through four stages: Coming from Gratitude, Honoring our Pain for the World, Seeing with New/Ancient Eyes, and Going Forth. This virtual collective journey will guide participants in an interactive experience illuminating how we are strong, creative, and deeply interconnected.
