Activating hope with Joanna Macy

Sat Nov 16, 4-6 pm

Macy, Joanna standing“Suspicion of power leads people to be reluctant to act authoritatively . . . . Fortunately the power-over model isn’t the only way to understand power.  When we see with new eyes, a more attractive and capacity-building alternative comes into view.”

– Joanna Macy & Christopher Johnstone, Active Hope (2012, p. 108)

“Thinking of courage and determination as things we do rather than things we have helps us to develop these qualities.  They emerge out of our engagement with actual situations and the dynamics that arise from our interactions.  This approach is relational, and we call it power-with.

Joanna Macy & Christopher Johnstone (2012, p. 109)
