The Work That Reconnects: Resourcing for Climate Coaches
An opportunity for members of the CCA to experience Joanna Macy’s Work That Reconnects first-hand.
The Work That Reconnects was developed as a powerful resourcing tool for climate activists, although its applications are far more wide-reaching. Through a series of experiential activities such as roleplay, meditation, free writing and movement, participants are able to reconnect deeply with their own wisdom, humanity, and sense of belonging to the earth.
This workshop is an opportunity for those of us who may be struggling with feelings of anxiety, fear, grief, not-enoughness, or anger about the climate crisis, simultaneously trying to balance our need to pay the bills and work for clients with our concerns about the future of our planet. We often meet to discuss our work on an intellectual and professional level, but rarely meet as kindred spirits who are trying to act in the interests of the earth.
You may find that the Work That Reconnects will be a powerful tool to add to your belt as a climate coach, and this workshop hopes to pave the way to discussing its many potentials and applications as well as simply providing a space for you to check in with where you are on your own journey.

Presenter / Host Bio
Gwyneth Jones is a Work That Reconnects facilitator, Emotional Intelligence Practitioner and Coach currently residing in Prague, Czech Republic, although she originally comes from North Wales. See more at www.gwynethjones.coach Facilitator bio: Since I was young, I knew that my purpose was to heal. I have been called to connect with the earth and to use my gifts of empathy, compassion, patience and intuition for healing since my childhood, although it is only in the last few years that the calling has become louder and more urgent. My background is in Psychology, Coaching and Counselling - I have my BSc in Psychology and MSc in Applied Positive Psychology, and it was during my studies that I became interested in ecotherapy and the fact that mainstream Psychology largely ignores the role of nature in wellbeing. Through my research into ecotherapy, I found the Work That Reconnects. Several years later, when I became active with Extinction Rebellion, the Work was presented to me once again - and as I was dedicating this portion of my life towards training as a coach already, I felt called to follow the training path of WTR facilitation, too. For years, my mantra had already been "we need to reconnect with ourselves, each other, and nature". Experiencing the Work first-hand was groundbreaking for me. Even though I felt called to facilitate the work, experiencing it as a participant was something else. Within me, what opened up could be described as ancient wisdom, deep connection to Source, to the Earth, to my Knowing. I have seen time and time again - even through online workshops - the transformative powers of the Work That Reconnects. We are living through transformative times, and I find myself unable to participate in "Business as Usual" without feeling sick. The past few years has been a process of learning to trust my intuition more and more, and I know that I am meant to be a part of the Great Turning.
