Thurs 28th Oct: Faith and the Environment (London)
I find Transition initiatives an exciting community-led idea, and have on occasion witnessed individuals tirelessly working to complete inspiring projects that have rippled to empower the local community. There is much to be said in today’s world, about people owning their power by organising together. It takes passion, patience, the ability to work authentically in groups, and with inner work can be used as a vehicle for spiritual growth.
This public seminar in Kingston, is organised by Kingston interfaith Forum along with the local Transition initiative and Kingston Council. An area that some Transition initiatives are looking more closely at is that of diversity. I’m honoured to have been invited to speak at this collaborative event, and look forward to meeting and engaging with fellow speakers, workshop leaders and participants.
