Join us for an intimate conversation celebrating Joanna's work, life, and inspirations through the years. This will be an opportunity to hear personal stories from Joanna's childhood and family life as well as the origins of her fierce anti-nuclear activism and the development of The Work That Reconnects. 

Joanna Macy, PhD, author, teacher, and ecophilosopher is known the world over for her workshops for social and environmental activists. Drawing on Buddhism, systems theory, and deep ecology, her Work That Reconnects helps people transform despair and apathy, in the face of overwhelming social and ecological crises, into constructive, collaborative action. It brings a new way of seeing the world, as our larger living body, freeing us from the assumptions and attitudes that now threaten the continuity of life on Earth. Joanna is an adjunct faculty member at CIIS and the author of several books, including her most recent with co-author Chris Johnstone, Active Hope: How to Face the Mess We're in without Going Crazy.


Joanna will be in conversation with Renée G. Soule.  Soule, a PhD candidate at Meridian University, has been developing and teaching ecopsychology for nearly 30 years. This emerging orientation within psychology holds wild-nature as integral to psychological and societal well-being. Her doctoral research reframes environmental crises as an initiation presaging and promoting a new level of maturity commensurate with (and demanded by) the challenges we face. She currently teaches Nonviolent Communication in San Quentin Prison, offers online courses through the Sustainable World Coalition, and is adjunct faculty at CIIS.
