am flying across the country to meet with my mentor Joanna Macy, and forty or
so dear hearts whose life work is embedded within the Work that Reconnects. Some of you reading this I get to hug in
person tomorrow! The rest of you I will carry in my heart as we spend the next
eight days diving deep into the nectar of the work that has come through Joanna
Macy, and so many, in this time of Great Turning, and Great Unravelling. If you
are not sure who or what I am talking about, please do yourself a favor in
looking up www.joannamacy.net
While I am traveling across the
continent, many of yall will be gathering in the town of Appalachia, Virginia,
for a much deserved celebration and fish fry marking the successful campaign to
save Ison Rock Ridge in Wise County, VA. Hooray! I join my voice with so many
of you in relief and joy that this mountain is no longer on the chopping block!

write a loving report about this upcoming trip, and the state of our mountains when
I return. For now, I want to also let you all know that I will be offering my
first ever webinar on Eco-Chaplaincy through my alma mater Naropa University,
on Wednesday, September 16th, at 1:00, eastern time, and you are
invited! For more information, please go to: http://www.naropa.edu/alumni-relations/get-involved/alumni-sharing-knowledge.php.
Much love to all,
