Active Hope

The world is on fire, [subscriber:firstname | default:sadly], and we have the opportunity to step into the adventure of our lives, to link arms with others across difference and age and together co-create the world we want. Our first step is to find Active Hope. This interactive live webinar course is based on the book Active Hope – How to Face the Mess We’re in without Going Crazy, by Joanna Macy and Chris Johnstone.

“Active Hope is a readiness to discover the strengths
in ourselves and in others;
a readiness to discover the reasons for hope
and the occasions for love.
A readiness to discover the size and strength of our hearts,
our quickness of mind, our steadiness of purpose,
our own authority, our love for life,
the liveliness of our curiosity,
the unsuspected deep well of patience and diligence,
the keenness of our senses, and our capacity to lead.
None of these can be discovered in an armchair or without risk.”
― Joanna Macy & Chris Johnstone, Active Hope

It’s time to share wisdom related to this world we are co-generating; it’s time to connect our hearts and minds to see how our collective contributions matter. I invite you to check this out, and join in with this conversation that will touch move and inspire you as you join in with a diverse group of people who care about making a difference with a renewed awareness.
