Reconnecting to Life/The Work That Reconnects workshops and retreats engage heart, mind and spirit in the task of deepening and repairing our connections to ourselves, our human community and all planetary life.


Reconnecting to Life is a safe and transformative group process, led by highly skilled facilitators, in which we celebrate the joy and beauty of life, open to our true place in nature, and share witness to our deepest feelings about the challenges facing our troubled world.

Drawing on dialogue, ritual, contemplation, experiences in nature and a range of creative processes, we explore new ways of seeing that support a heart-felt and sustainable engagement with the world. Finding strength in our interconnectedness, we access the courage to speak our deepest truth and the creativity necessary for bringing our gifts into the service of life.
