Drawing on her work in deep ecology, living systems theory and spiritual traditions, Joanna’s workshops include interactive group processes designed to clarify the skills needed to navigate the challenging times ahead and to help the participants identify the unique role each may play in what she terms the “Great Turning” to a more life-sustaining future.

The cost of the workshop is $100. This includes lunches on both days, tickets to attend Joanna’s public talk on Friday evening and admission to the Great Turning Hootenanny on Saturday evening led by Gretchen Sleicher. Additional donations to support Joanna’s teaching will be requested at the event. A limited number of scholarships are available.
