Dates: Wednesday 24 February; Wednesday 3 March; Sunday 14 March; Wednesday 24 March; Sunday 28 March; April; Sunday 24 February; Tuesday 5 March; Tuesday 19 March; Sunday 24 March and Wednesday 7 April 2021 (Wednesdays 6.30-8.45pm; Sundays 2-4.30pm) Sessions will be on-line on Zoom but COVID permitting there will be a later half day ‘Council of All Beings’ workshop outdoors.
A six week training with a small group of people, sharing our gratitude for life, our human responses to this environmental crisis, and envisaging how to move forwards inspired, resilient and courageous. This workshop is a safe place to be with our feelings, helping us to stay grounded, connected and responsive to what’s happening in our lives, our communities and our world. Unless we have spaces to feel our responses to the destruction in our world, we can easily feel paralysed or numb – and not take the necessary action to prevent more harm.
The course of workshops is based on the work of Joanna Macy and Chris Johnstone, recently revised (2020) to address the urgent crisis our world is in. The group will be co-facilitated by Jeannie Hodder and John Betts. This work is an offering from the facilitators but those who wish to make a donation at the end of the course may do so. This is not a requirement of attendance. Participants are expected to commit to the whole course.
Spaces are limited (approx 14 places) so booking is essential. To make a booking or for more information, please contact: Jeannie: email@example.com or John: firstname.lastname@example.org. In your email, please include a few sentences about why you want to join and what you hope to achieve from joining the group.
