Joanna Macy on the Great Turning.
There is a beautiful film clip on Joanna Macy’s website of her outlining the concept of the Great Turning. You need to click on “Video Project for the Work That Reconnects” to start it. I find her vision very powerful, and in this clip she comes across as a passionate teacher and as someone who deeply feels that exhilaration of these transitionary times. She is one of the people with the most profound insights into this whole question. I am fortunate enough to be doing a course with her in a month’s time, something I have waited 10 years to get the opportunity to do. This film clip suggests to me that it’s going to be a great few days. While you are at her site, have a look around, there are some great resources there…

Rob: I am part of a smallish group of folks who are working along the principles laid out so beautifully by Joanna and her work, and had the amazing opportunity of taking her intensive in Massachusetts in the fall of 05. WE have all been passing around the link to your website, as it is so resonant for us. You are going to be a great addition to whichever course you are taking. Have a great time! And thank you for this site.
