What is Resonance?
With Resonance workshops we ground ourselves, feel awake to our interconnection with our living world, to our ecological selves, and to our sensitivity to the condition of our planet. This is based on “The Work That Reconnects”, a body of work developed by respected spiritual scholar Joanna Macey and others over many decades and used all around the world.
In the course you will build on this and also further your clarity of mind and purpose using Mindfulness, Movement and Deep Ecology. Beyond this, you will access practices that deepen your ability to recognise your strengths and unique gifts in the wider narrative into which you were born. We will take the perspective of Deep Time to fully comprehend ourselves as the universe knowing itself; our consciousness an act of the universe’s limitless creativity.
We, like a living system, will create outcomes not predictable from our component parts, as they grow from shared inspiration and from our heartfelt collaboration. You will have opportunity to find and nourish the part of yourself that makes you feel most alive.
All the while being nourished by the inspiring living world around us, food and drinks, held in the comfort of landscape and the earth.
We hope you are able to take this journey with us, to gain in strength and insight. Join us to recognise your potential and feel activated to play your role in the Great Turning towards a life-sustaining future. By starting with compassion, joy and gratitude we will be in our best position to go forward.
