    Description

    The challenges we face can be difficult even to think about. Climate change, the depletion of oil, economic 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.

    "To the future beings of the twenty-second century, Active Hope might turn out to be the most important book written in the twenty-first." (Bill Plotkin, author of Soulcraft)

    Fairly basic and not intersectional

    This book may have been helpful to me 8 years ago when I was just entering activism and awareness of problems. But for someone who has been working in intersectional activism spaces for many years, this book is far too basic to be useful. It focuses in on climate change almost exclusively and from a very white, middle class perspective. It doesn't go into how to deal with more immediate and life threatening problems like violence based on race or sexuality/gender. Save your money and read a book by a person of color instead.

    One of the most inspiring and powerful books

    When I started reading this book in a depressive phase, it helped me get out of it by applying "Active hope" to my personal life.

    Now, whenever I feel a lack of motivation for my participation in the "Great Turning", or even lost touch with the purpose of my life, I listened to a part. Mostly after just 5 min, I was totally inspired and wired again, energized to do the exercises, and to work on creating an organisation...

    Somewhat Helpful

    I found it difficult to get through this book, mainly due to the narrator's voice. Nearly every word was over-annunciated, which distracted from the actual content. There were some helpful writing prompts and motivational moments in the book, but overall I felt like it didn't tell me anything that I didn't already know. It would have been nice if there was some mention of the fact that every individual has the power to help reverse the climate crisis by cutting meat and dairy out of their diets. Making a significant impact is actually that simple. Animal agriculture is the leading cause of climate change and yet so many "environmentalists" are unwilling to change their personal habits to align with the cause they claim to be fighting for.

    Much food for thought.

    I found the orators voice so distracting it was hard to take in a great deal of the book and it’s message I’m sorry to say.

    The narration is insipid

    The narrator recites the words with so little apparent understanding of their meaning, that the meaning becomes obscured. Too slow at times, too emotive at others, with awkward pauses and incorrect emphasis. Joanna Macy’s message is too important for such an artless reading. Skip the audible edition of this title and just read the book.

    Amazing content, slightly irritating performance, and a homophobic gaff

    I found the content to be inspiring and transformative. Macy’s spiral-shaped Work That Reconnects is a precious, life-affirming and much-needed resource. Macy and Johnstone’s examples and exercises bring insight and cultivate self-knowledge, leading to action and “active hope.”

    I found the narration to be a bit tedious, with the voice performer over-enunciating to the point of distraction and which often interrupted the logical and emotional impact of phrases and sentences.

    One startling, homophobic gaff occurs near the very end of the book. The authors use the term “sexual preference” where they, I believe, mean “sexual orientation.” I hope their understanding of sexual orientation has advanced since 2012.

    All in all, though, an inspiring and very important book for our time. Highly recommend.

    Equipping us for "active hope"

    Helpful practices in every chapter to equip us for practicing the skills of "active hope" needed for the days ahead. The Great Turning will need all of us.
    Narration was a bit annoying. Overreach on earnestness led to a stilted and unnatural diction and cadence.
