Love this, and also the serious message behind it.
Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh was once asked what we need to do to help the healing of our world. “Hear the sound of the earth crying within us” he replied. For anyone interested in finding supported spaces to do this (and tap into the aliveness of our emotional energy), I’d recommend the Work That Reconnects workshops developed by Joanna Macy and colleagues. There’s plenty happening in the UK (including a facilitator training) and around the world. Here’s some links:
For UK workshops, see
There is also a Work That Reconnects UK facebook group.
For a directory of facilitators and more info, see Joanna Macy’s website at:
For live streaming video of her DVD The Work That Reconnects, see

There’s also UK workshop details on my website at
