ActiveHopeStarting on Tuesday March 15, Linda Seeley of Mothers for Peace will lead a Study-Action Group using the book Active Hope by Joanna Macy and Chris Johnstone as the cornerstone.

A study-action group allows everyone to participate equally, and it helps people discover their own gifts and resources for healing the world. Active Hope is a great guide to work from. Participants will read 2 (or so) chapters before each meeting, discuss the chapters, and practice the Work that Reconnects together.

The group will meet at St Ben’s for 6 weeks on alternate Tuesdays, beginning March 15th. Meetings will be at 7:15 March 15, 29, April 12, 26, May 10, 24. You don’t have to be at every meeting in order to participate.

Linda has been studying with Joanna Macy since 1999, and says, “the Work that Reconnects helps me more than anything else to stay grounded while working in these times of great challenge for the world.” Please contact Linda if you plan to attend,
