Holding the Planet in Mind (‘I don’t know what to do’)
Olivia Lousada & Di Adderley
1:30 – 5:00pm (3.5hrs)
Olivia Lousada & Di Adderley:
“…Anyone who does not think we are in a climate crisis is … either a madman or an economist”.
“Humanity is waging war on nature.”
– UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres.
This workshop sets out to focus our mindfulness toward the planet and how we live on it. If we knew what to do, there would be no workshop, so we will learn together ̶ starting from what our imagination knows from deep feelings related to nature.
We will then contemplate how we encounter ourselves in the world; and finally, how do we understand the groups around us, and how we could contribute in our own particular style?
Creativity in non-aggressive action is perhaps our most hopeful route towards ameliorating despair in the face of the climate crisis.
