Our web site is a valuable tool for reviewing philosophy and practices, for ongoing WTR development, for finding music appropriate for each stage of the Spiral, and for planning activities for our workshops and presentations. We can find new material on evolving edge topics such as decolonization. Visiting the site periodically and before presenting a workshop, provides updating and inspiration for facilitators.
Here is a link to a handy introduction to the new site. https://mailchi.mp/workthatreconnects/december-2019-newsletter
It takes just a little while to navigate around the new web site to find where old favorites are now located. Note we have two banners above with navigation buttons, a new side bar with all the major front pages, and if you scroll down to the bottom of the home page, some of our most used tabs are there as colorful large buttons.
News items appear as blogs on the home page. Notice the many reports on regional gatherings taking place from September 2019 through March and April 2020, as well as the announcement of book launch parties for A Wild Love for the World – Joanna Macy and the Work of Our Time.
In the past, I added links to the old web site to my PowerPoint slides which I bring for informational content, such as videos of Joanna, the Elm dance, or songs to sing along with. Some of my favorite videos are not currently on the new website, but they can be accessed through Vimeo. It’s easy to recheck any links used in the past and relink as necessary. The new site looks great and it is set up a little differently, so I recommend visiting it in advance of needing something specific. There are multiple tabs for finding our resources: the top banner, the bottom of the home page, and the side bar icon.
Thank you to everyone who worked on creating this fabulous web site!
