Active Hope
The challenges we face can be difficult even to think about. Climate change, the depletion of oil, economic upheaval, and mass extinction together create a planetary emergency of overwhelming proportions. Active Hope shows us how to strengthen our capacity to face this crisis so that we can respond with unexpected resilience and creative power. Drawing on decades of teaching an empowerment approach known as the Work That Reconnects, the authors guide us through a transformational process informed by mythic journeys, modern psychology, spirituality, and holistic science. This process equips us with tools to face the mess we're in and play our role in the collective transition, or Great Turning, to a life-sustaining society.

I loved this book. It is so important to draw on resilience and creativity in times of despair. Books like this can be true lifeboats.

I highly recommend this great book...still reading it and think it is masterfully written on a topic that we all need all the help we can get. Keeping yourself sane in this crazy world by loving yourself and loving our planet is the most pressing activity of our times. Macy is a wonderful human being. I have heard her speaking and she embodies the wisdom of our ages.
