To prepare for what Joanna Macy calls “The Great Turning, we need to develop strength and cultivate new perspectives and even behaviors more in alignment with this new phase of our evolution. During these 4 weeks, through reading, exercises and conversation, we will open new perspectives as we nurture and sow seeds of hope that will help us move forward in changing times. We encourage you to read or have available the book Active Hope: Facing the Mess We’re in Without Going Crazy by Joanna Macy.
