.The work that reconnects workshops: Deep Ecology applies a new worldview to our relationship with the earth. In doing this, it challenges deep-seated assumptions about the way we see ourselves, moving from just seeing ourselves as ‘individuals’ towards also seeing ourselves as part of the earth. This can increase both our sense of belonging in life and our tendency to act for life. Deep Ecology workshops bring people together with the intention to heal our relationship with the earth. They provide an opportunity to explore our emotional responses to world problems and may offer ‘despair and empowerment’ methods to use the energy of these emotional responses in our work for earth recovery. The workshops introduce the Deep Ecology approach, working with ideas, feelings and personal action planning. They aim to deepen our sense of connection with life and strengthen our ability to respond to world problems.
