In the accelerating pace and pressure of today’s tempo, we as a
culture are losing touch with both our past and our future. Drawing
on the Buddha Dharma as well as four decades of nuclear activism,
Joanna will reflect on how we can expand the temporal context of our
lives. She will share stories and practices that help us cultivate an
empowering and companionable relationship with past and future generations.
Joanna Macy, scholar of Buddhism and systems theory, is the root teacher
of the Work That Reconnects, known globally for supporting activists
in peace, justice and environmental movements. She has long been
inspired by the concept of Nuclear Guardianship, for long-term care of
our radioactive legacy. Her latest book is Active Hope: How to Face
the Mess we’re in Without Going Crazy, co-authored with Chris
