I have been part of the young people of color cohort of The Work that Reconnects. We’re reading from the book Coming Back to Life: Practices to Reconnect Our Lives, Our World and being mentored by the author, Joanna Macy. We have a lot of discussions. Not just talking, but embodiment of the ideas. Patricia St. Onge brings in her expertise with the deep culture work and together all 19 of us hum with gratitude, pain, new eyes, and agency. “We live in an extraordinary moment on Earth. We possess more technical prowess and knowledge than our ancestors could have dreamt of… at the same time we witness destruction of life in dimensions that confronted no previous generation in recorded history” Macy says.
