Deep Times: A Journal of the Work That Reconnects
Deep Times offers must-read articles, art, and poetry for people who have experienced the shift in perception invoked by the Work That Reconnects–of how life flows in relationships and systems, not isolated things, and how our selves are not separated from each other or Earth, but deeply interdependent. The journal provides brainfood and techniques for those of us who are working to co-create life-sustaining, equitable cultures for all. The title comes from what Joanna Macy calls “Deep Time” work, in which we reconnect with ancestors and future beings to guide and inspire us. Deep Times follows the Spiral of the Work That Reconnects, with articles and poems on Gratitude, Honoring Our Pain for the World, Seeing with New Eyes, and Going Forth.
A new section, Evolving Edge, reflects a foundational shift within the Work That Connects to “decolonize” its assumptions, concepts, and practices. Evolving Edge will feature new theory and perspectives, and new and revised practices. There are also sections for Network and Resources (book reviews and suggestions, videos and films, websites, etc). May you find here inspiration and connections to support your work for the Great Turning to a Life-Sustaining Society.
We publish Deep Times twice a year, in May and November. We are also experimenting with a web-based edition, to make the articles more readable and accessible. You can print out individual stories from the web-based issue; see the print button at the top of each story.
In August 2017, we’ll publish a special issue with a guest editorial team of people of color; this issue will be available in print as well as on the web.
We still have beautiful print copies of the Spring and Summer 2016 issues for sale for people who prefer to read from paper. (No print version of Fall 2016 available.)
Print copies are available for $15 plus shipping and can be ordered here.
Order issues (Spring and Summer 2016) for $25 plus shipping here.
For bulk orders of 5 or more print copies or international orders, send an email to [email protected].
Downloadable PDFs of those issues are available here.
Future issues may focus on specific themes with guest editors, so please step forward if you are interested in filling that role. Your suggestions and contributions will help make this journal a truly community effort.
Grant money helped publish the first three journal issues and redesign the Work That Reconnects website. Now we in the Network are “on our own” and are grateful for the donations many of you have made to support both the journal and the website, as well as other Network activities. We would like to continue to offer the Journal free of charge, but can only do so with your financial support. Please donate to the Work That Reconnects Network today.
Please submit articles: about the work you are doing; on insights and inquiry into concepts and theory of the Work That Reconnects; about your work with specific populations; your poetry, music, artwork; and anything else you want to share with the larger community.We especially want to feature writers and artists of color.

Gratitude to Our Supporters
Gratitude is an integral element in the Work That Reconnects, and Gratitude is indeed what we feel for the generous monetary contributions that people have made to the Network–as donations or facilitator memberships–since the first issue of this Journal was published in March 2016. These funds are helping us develop the Work That Reconnects Network via further website upgrades, the ongoing publishing of this Journal, and the building of the network via gatherings, stronger communication platforms, and a membership directory. A sister organization, Interhelp, is providing fiscal sponsorship so all donations are tax deductible.
