Deep Ecology Weekend

“Extinction or Evolution”
DEEP ECOLOGY Weekend: Despair & Empowerment Work for Healing our World.

Join us for an extraordinary, heart-felt journey into enhanced connection and empowerment with The Work That Reconnects. Transforming the despair for our world into Action.

We call in community organizers, teachers, healers, rebels, warriors, parents, spiritual seekers, and everyone working in service of Life. Join us as we explore the complex nature of our times!

Workshop times: 10am-5pm Saturday and Sunday


We are alive at an extraordinary moment in time: It is a time of growing uncertainty, as climate catastrophe looms, the sixth mass extinction accelerates, and the wounds of inequality and inhumanity are laid bare. It is also a time of great possibility when creativity, courage, and collective action can change the political and ecological landscape for future generations. A time when many of us are seeking ways to reconnect to one another and to the living Earth, and to bring forth our particular gifts to contribute.

The Work That Reconnects is a transformational body of work that includes theories and interactive practices enabling us to reconnect to our own true nature, the web of life, and to our human community. Opening our hearts and minds to the love and the grief we feel for our world empowers us to act on behalf of Earth.

We will use experiential practices, poetry, ritual, song, movement and silence to guide our journey through the four stages of the spiral of the Work That Reconnects.
The four stages support one another and help us experience first hand that we are larger, stronger, deeper, and more creative than we have been brought up to believe. Saturday will focus on GRATITUDE and HOUNORING OUR PAIN FOR THE WORLD, while Sunday focusses on SEEING WITH NEW/ANCIENT EYES and GOING FORTH.
Drawing on the work of Joanna Macy, John Seed and Arne Naess this workshop will empower you to act on behalf of Earth with clarity, love and direction.

Your Facilitator:
Inna Alex is a passionate community organizer, environmental educator, deep ecology facilitator and yoga teacher. Inna has been teaching Deep Ecology workshops around NZ and overseas for the past 10 years, having studied both with Joanna Macy and John Seed. “For me, Joanna’s “Work That Reconnects” is the bridge between our spiritual journeys & how we act in the world. I’m amazed how powerful this work is in enabling us to experience ourselves as part of the Living Whole and recommit to wholeheartedly engage in its healing.“
