  • Active Hope: Responding to the Climate Crisis Workshop

Active Hope is a movement and book, developed by long-time activists Joanna Macy and Chris Johnstone. They describe Active Hope as ‘something we do rather than have’ - a unique set of tools that can enable us to cope with the climate crisis and find an active role, no matter how big or small.

About the Workshop

This donation-based workshop offers an introduction to Joanna Macy’s inspiring Active Hope work, focusing on responding to climate change mindfully. The workshop has been designed to help us to find hope, cultivate courage and build resilience amid the challenges we face. 

This workshop has been curated by highly experienced mindfulness practitioner, Rosalie Dores. It will explore the four stages of Joanna Macy’s ‘Work That Reconnects Spiral', which participants will become familiar with during the session.

As part of this workshop, participants will experience the power of community connection as a way of empowering responsiveness in the midst of uncertainty.

The workshop will include:

  • An introduction to Joanna Macy’s Active Hope work
  • Cultivating gratitude to support our resources and resilience
  • Using mindfulness to help us cope and stay present with difficulty
  • Guided meditation and relational exploration, creating a wider sense of self

Please note that although meditation is part of the workshop, it does not centre around mindfulness. The main focus will be to offer a non-judgmental space to come together in the face of climate change.
