As the climate changes, injustices erupt, and decency slips away from the public square, many of us are feeling increasing isolation and despair. It is hard to know how to be grounded and hopeful in this world, or where to even begin. This retreat builds off the work of pioneering eco-philosopher and Buddhist scholar Joanna Macy to lead you into a transformative journey that will reorient your perspective on our current crises and give you the tools to become a bearer of hope for future generations. With backgrounds in psychology, sustainability, ministry and environmental justice, our four seasoned workshop leaders have the tools to take you on a journey of healing, joy, and empowerment. Join us for a weekend of renewal in the beauty of a Nebraska prairie.
Friday, April 5 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Saturday, April 6 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.
Sunday, April 7 9:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.
