Deep Ecology Events

Despair & Empowerment Work for Healing our World

Join us for extraordinary, heart-felt journeys into enhanced connection and empowerment with The Work That Reconnects (WTR).


In 2020/21, Inna shared Deep Ecology at workshops and retreats in Golden Bay, Nelson, Wellington, Auckland, Melbourne and the UK, and also at Convergence, Luminate Festival, the Permaculture and Empowered Activism courses at Tui Community. 

Our upcoming events are all detailed on the InnaEvolution website.

We offer workshops at festivals, as part of Permaculture Courses, our Empowered Activism Training and various Yoga Teacher Training Programs. One-day courses and multi-day retreats are offered throughout the year in various locations around Aotearoa. If there’s no workshop scheduled near you, but you’re interest in hosting one, please enquire via emailing:


Workshop Context & Format

We are alive at an extraordinary moment in time: It is a time of growing uncertainty, as climate catastrophe looms, the sixth mass extinction accelerates, and the wounds of inequality and inhumanity are laid bare. It is also a time of great possibility when creativity, courage, and collective action can change the political and ecological landscape for future generations. A time when many of us are seeking ways to reconnect to one another and to the living Earth, and to bring forth our particular gifts to contribute.

The Work That Reconnects is a transformational body of work that includes theories and interactive practices enabling us to reconnect to our own true nature, the web of life, and to our human community. Opening our hearts and minds to the love and the grief we feel for our world empowers us to act on behalf of Earth.

We use experiential practices, poetry, ritual, song, movement and silence to guide our journey through the four stages of the spiral of the Work That Reconnects. These four stages support one another and help us experience first hand that we are larger, stronger, deeper, and more creative than we have been brought up to believe.

Drawing on the work of Joanna Macy, John Seed and Arne Naess this workshop will empower you to act on behalf of Earth with clarity, love and direction.

Everybody is welcome. No previous experience necessary.

Your Facilitator:
Inna Alex is a passionate community organizer, environmental educator, deep ecology facilitator and yoga teacher. Inna has been teaching Deep Ecology workshops around NZ for the past 12 years, having studied both with Joanna Macy and John Seed. „For me, Joanna’s “Work That Reconnects” is the bridge between our spiritual journeys & how we act in the world. I’m amazed how powerful this work is in enabling us to experience ourselves as part of the Living Whole and recommit to wholeheartedly engage in its healing.“
