Hello! My name is Lydia and I have been a dedicated student of Joanna Macy's for the past 4 years. I was first introduced to her while pursuing a Masters Degree in Philosophy and Religion at the California Institute of Integral Studies. I have been deeply influenced by Joanna's work, The Work That Reconnects, which has helped thousands of people learn to hold the diifficult feelngs that can arise from being present with the realities of our current environmental crises. This work has the ability to help us speak our truth, deepen our communities, and catalyze our willingness to show up for each other and our world. I am also passionate about food justice, sustainable food cultivation, and food as medicine. I have facilitated The Work That Reconnects all over the US, and have now been invited to Indonesia by two friends of Joanna's who have been engaged in sustainability work, integrating The Work That Reconnects with their work in local communities. It would mean so much to me to apply my knowledge in sustainable practices and community engagement, and with your help I could do it!
