A fascinating and moving workshop - thank you so much Fiona for running it. We were joined by Val, Steve, Paul, Julian, Belina, Liz, Naimh, Charlotte and Peta. A couple of photos were taken, and I hope Belina will upload them here.

Fiona shared this video of Joanna Macy speaking about the Great Turning, and the work that needs to be done to achieve a transformation from an industrial growth society to a life sustaining society.

We experienced exercises which took us through four stages: coming from gratitude, honouring our pain for the world, seeing with new eyes and going forth. It's hard to describe these adequately: they were highly experiential, some wordless, and involving a degree of intimacy and trust not usually asked of workshop participants.

Others who were there may want to add things about their experience, reflections and intentions.


Thank you Penny for organising this great event!

Best wishes,
Thanks for putting that video up Penny.
