Yeah But What can I Do? (Exploring Our Responses to Environmental Calamity; A Community Conversation) Sunday August 2nd 4 – 6pm Koha
Ever felt confused, overwhelmed, grief stricken or outright pissed off about our abuse of Mother Earth? Wondering where it will all lead?
As a group lets explore how we might face our future while thriving. How do we respond psychologically, physically, emotionally and spiritually to the fact that our life support systems are so threatened? How might we stay strong and react positively in these challenging times to help move humanity towards a more sustainable future?
Ange Palmer has a unique perspective on this important topic. Weaving her experience as a Medical Herbalist, student and teacher of Ashtanga Yoga and Co-Producer of the award-winning climate justice documentary 2 Degrees, she offers the opportunity to cultivate this dialogue publicly as part of her ongoing work.
