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 re-create life-sustaining cultures and share the Work with others. 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, features articles about decolonizing the Work, new theory and perspectives, and new and revised practices. There are also sections for Network Weaving and Books 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 are moving to twice a year publication, in the Spring (May) and Fall (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.
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.
The grant money used for the first three journal issues, and for preliminary redesign of the Work That Reconnects website is nearly exhausted. We 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. Submit material 6-8 weeks prior to publication via our contact form.
For the Spring 2017 issue of Deep Times, we welcome articles, poetry, and artwork on the topic of decolonization as related to the Work That Reconnects and the Spiral. We especially want to feature writers and artists of color. Please send your articles, poems, and artwork via the WTR contact form (be sure to select the Journal from the drop down menu) by March 25, 2017. Click here for full submission guidelines.

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 paid facilitator listings–since the first issue of this Journal was published in March 2016. These funds will be well used in 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.
