How to Face the Mess We’re in Without Going Crazy
By Joanna Macy & Chris Johnstone
The challenges we face can be difficult even to think about. Climate change, economic and social
upheaval, and mass extinction together create a planetary emergency of overwhelming proportions.
Active Hope shows us how to strengthen our capacity to face this crisis so that we can respond with
unexpected resilience and creative power. Drawing on decades of teaching an empowerment approach
known as the Work That Reconnects, the authors guide us through a transformational process informed
by mythic journeys, modern psychology, spirituality, and holistic science. This process equips us with
tools to face the mess we’re in and play our role in the collective transition, or Great Turning,
to a life-sustaining society.
