EVENT POSTPONED: Unfortunately, we have had to postpone this event due to illness. We will be rescheduling soon. Apologies to all those looking forward to coming, but we'll set a new date soon!
Many of us are concerned about climate change and recognise that it presents one of the most urgent challenges our planet faces. Yet we find it difficult to talk about in a meaningful and authentic way to our family and friends. Have you found yourself in this situation? Why is this, when other ‘hot’ political issues (Brexit, austerity, Trump for example) are often easier to broach?
At this specially organised event on Friday 26th January, 7-9pm, at the Totnes Methodist Church we will be exploring this difficulty with ‘tipping point conversations’.We are delighted to have renowned psychoanalyst and founder member of the Psychology Climate Alliance, Sally Weintrobe with us as our guest speaker. In her talk, Sally will take a psychoanalytical look at the problem and suggests why the difficulty exists. During the evening we will share our experiences of these situations and together think and feel our way into how we could make this different.

This evening will be the first of a series of Inner Transition events throughout 2018 that will explore our responses to climate instability. The next, on February 10th, 3-5pm (save the date) will be an open meeting about "Active Hope" (more details to follow).
