Event description

Active Hope – Nourishing Our Capacity to Act for Life on Earth

Our Active Hope book journey is a shared process to deepen community and resource ourselves in addressing concerns about the world. 

Active Hope guides readers on a transformative journey designed to strengthen our capacity to act for life on Earth. While reading the book alone can bring great benefits, the empowering journey is enhanced by the company of others. 

“If the world is to be healed through human efforts, I am convinced it will be by ordinary people, people whose love for this life is even greater than their fear.” - Joanna Macy

Our online sessions involve guided practices and meditations, and sharing and reflections from reading the book and participating in the activities.
