Compassion: The Courage to Reconnect

Week-Long Residential (50 hours of training)

Inspired by Joanna Macy’s work, this weeklong workshop, using Psychodrama and Sociometry will support our connection to ourselves, to nature and to other group members; this will foster our courage to see, feel and act on things we feel helpless about in our world. We will learn skills to restore hope to the helpless as well as to ourselves, when we experience front line trauma.

Location : 1815 Valley Rd, Huntsville, ON, P1H 1A8
