Dear wider Municipalities in Transition community of practice,
This email has news of two recordings, and three opportunities to meet, learn and share online coming up – all links available on https://municipalitiesintransition.org/new-series-of-webinars-for-the-next-phase .
Our next date is Thursday 12th November, an Online Workshop on Inner Transition: exploring our personal response to the crisis with the help of the Work that Reconnects
Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/645956579415262
This will be an online workshop on Inner Transition, exploring our personal response to the crises with the help of the Work that Reconnects. This can help each of us personally as we work in the fields of sustainability and collaboration, and also provide useful insights and skills that we can draw on to deepen and increase the meaningfulness of collaboration work. The Work that Reconnects helps people discover and experience their innate connections with each other and the self-healing powers of the web of life, transforming despair and overwhelm into inspired, collaborative action. This will be an introduction to this work with opportunities for interaction.
It will be led by Fernando García Ferreiro and Laura Sedano Bastida:
Fernando defines himself as an experienced beginner. He is a former Senior Manager of the European Commission (last job: Director Health and Wellbeing), Member of the Spanish Transition Network, involved with Deep Adaptation and Environmental Advisor of Serve the City (International Volunteering Association). His journey into Inner Transition includes the facilitation of the Work that Reconnects, participation in retreats about Rites of passage, personal exploration of death and spirituality, practice of Mindfulness and kind militance for the vegan cause.
Laura Sedano Bastida is a Social Psychologist orientated to Social Permaculture, Group Facilitation and Inner Work. She is a member of the Spanish Transition Hub and has been involved in the Educational Area designing, coordinating and facilitating different courses. She was an Investigator in Groups Development and Social Permaculture on Permaculture and Bio Construction Projects in Brazil. Her journey into Inner Transition started around 7 years ago when she was part of Permaculture Courses focused on Inner dimensions of change. She did an Intensive Course in the Work that Reconnects in México and she has been using Joanna´s Macy practices for years now. Teaching is one of her passions and the Spiritual, Inner and Social Dimension of Change guide her main focus.
