"In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer." - Albert Camus
The long nights of winter are the perfect time to turn inward and restore our energy, commitment, and care for each other and the planet. Begin the New Year refreshed and ready to take on new challenges by attending a workshop based on Joanna Macy and Chris Johnstone''s book Active Hope: How Do We Face the Mess We're in Without Going Crazy.
Green Community Connections is hosting the Active Hope Workshop for three Monday nights: Jan. 13, Jan. 27, and Feb. 10, from 7 p to 9p. The group will meet at Euclid Avenue United Methodist Church,405 S. Euclid, Oak Park.
Through guided reflections and sharing, we'll look back on what we've accomplished and remind ourselves of the inner gifts we each bring to this important work and the strength we give each other through the bonds we forge with our community. We do this so that we can participate in what Macy calls The Great Turning to a life-sustaining society. The workshop will be led by Sally Stovall, Marni Curtis and Pam Todd.
