After a successful iWEEK summer training on 'wild wisdom' in July, OtherWise will continue exploring the topics of connection to nature, sustainable activism and our personal role and voice in the challenges of these times through monthly 'inner sustainability' workshops. In order to build a sustainable world, we need to (re-) connect to the web of life: to ourselves, to others and to the nature around us. When we truly connect rather than to separate ourselves, we feel empathy, and from empathy comes the willingness to support and take action that is in line with life. The Inner Sustainability workshops are a chance to discover sustainability from within, as well as to meet, exchange and keep up a regular practice of nature-based methods.
Join us for the kick-off of these monthly workshops with a documentary screening on November 6th, and/or the first practice on November 10th! You can subscribe via this link to (one of) these events: https://goo.gl/forms/JcowsLfmc6iQJBkk2 Note that we can host up to around 30 people on Nov 10, so don't wait too long with subscribing!
On Tuesday the 6th of November 6 the Inner Sustainability Series will kick-off with a documentary on Joanna Macy, who is a deep ecologist, Buddhist scholar, activist and founder of the Work that Reconnects. Her work helps people transform despair and apathy, in the face of overwhelming social and ecological crises, into constructive, collaborative action. It brings a new way of seeing the world, as our larger living body, freeing us from the assumptions and attitudes that now threaten the continuity of life on Earth.
