Despair and Empowerment Work

Last week, Daniel Greenberg introduced us to the work of Joanna Macy who has been doing this work for many years.  She suggests that as we face an environmental crisis, we must not turn away – but rather must allow ourselves to “feel the pain.”  Here is Joanna Macy speaking about pain.

There are many of her videos on YouTube and her workshop materials on her web page.  For more from Joanna Macy, I can suggest her classic book Coming Back to Life.
