A series of workshops going through the full Active Hope Cycle. With Dr Connie Nell, social anthropologist. Active Hope is about negotiating a response to crisis. How can we connect, develop resilience and contribute to this change? The workshops follow the four steps outlined in work by Joanna Macy and Chris Johnstone: in the process we will show our gratitude, honour the pain, see with new eyes and go forth into action... The subheading of their book 'Active Hope' (2012) captures the spirit perfectly: 'How to Face the Mess We're in without Going Crazy'.
