The Work that Reconnects and Wild Earth Spiritual Community
Guidance from The Work that Reconnect’s Mutima Imani
What’s the big deal about moving into participant-centered leadership? Why is this vision so important? How does it affect me?
On March 26th, we turn to the work of Joanna Macy (“The Work that Reconnects”) with the help of her colleague and facilitator Mutima Imani. Mutima joins us as we begin transitioning into participant centered leadership.
We are witnessing the global unraveling of a dominant system that has separated us from our living planet. During this unraveling, we are invited to create a society that is life-sustaining rather than life-destroying. This “new structure” is a restoration of the kinship worldview* - a re-balancing of a system that has taken us far from our interconnectedness and interdependency on all living things.
To help envision this new society, take a look at the pdf below for an overview of the differences between “business as usual” and a *new* life-affirming worldview common in indigenous cultures.
IF we are to aid in turning toward a life-sustaining society, we must shift into doing things differently. Building a participant-centered leadership model is part of that shift (as is our practice of seeing the sacred with new eyes). Old patterns are deeply rooted, but the new ways are even deeper.
Join us as we grow group empathy, agency and courage in this *new* vision of community, guided by the gifted Mutima Imani.
