Active Hope by Joanna Macy (inner transition book club)

This meet up: get together to discuss the remarkable new book ACTIVE HOPE by Joanna Macy.

ABOUT THE BOOK: Active Hope is about finding, and offering, our best response to the crisis of sustainability unfolding in our world. It offers tools that help us face the mess we’re in, as well as find and play our role in the collective transition, or Great Turning, to a life-sustaining society.

Books about social and ecological change too often leave out a vital component: how do we change ourselves so that we are strong enough to fully contribute to this great shift? Active Hope fills this gap beautifully, guiding readers on a journey of gratitude, grief, interconnection and, ultimately, transformation.” Naomi Klein, author of The Shock Doctrine.

At the heart of this book is the idea that Active Hope is something we do rather than have. It involves being clear what we hope for and then playing our role in the process of bringing that about. The journey of finding, and offering, our unique contribution to the Great Turning helps us to discover new strengths, open to a wider network of allies and experience a deepening of our aliveness. When our responses are guided by the intention to act for healing of our world, the mess we’re in not only becomes easier to face, our lives also become more meaningful and satisfying.

    I thought this webinar on Saturday Oct 27 might interest any Active Hopers:

    Howard Martin: The Shift is Accelerating: Patience to Point 0

    The great shift in global consciousness is accelerating, fueled by a new energy and excitement over the prospect for new opportunities of positive change in our personal lives and throughout society. Martin’s insightful webinar is designed to inspire us as we move forward on this important journey.

    It's free to register and you can listen by phone or by computer at either 2pm ([masked]?mtcCampaign=21608&mtcEmail=[masked]) or 9pm[masked]?mtcCampaign=21608&mtcEmail=[masked])

    I've taken courses from him and am very impressed with his insight and outlook, always from the heart. The heart-deepening "tool" he will teach in this webinar is one that's usually not introduced until advanced courses at the Institute of Heart Math.

    Maybe "see" you there,
