Jump into the fool’s journey
Crack open the heart-mind – Poosh!
Honoring pain for the world weaves us in her web
Ground in beauty and gratitude, oh yes!
This song was written as the theme song of a retreat with Joanna Macy for facilitators of the Work That Reconnects. It’s a layer song, with each part corresponding to a point on the spiral, going backwards from Going Forth. At the end of the retreat each participant voiced what might constitute their “fool’s leap”. What bold step into the unknown can you commit to taking, for the Great Turning? Creating this website was part of the author’s leap.
