SEQ Deep Ecology Weekend Workshop When: Saturday 2nd March (8:30am arrival for a 9am start) - Sunday 3rd March 4pm 2019 Where: Kupidabin Wilderness Center, 7 Lyell Court, Mount Samson, QLD 4520. Accommodation: BYO Tent. Alternatively mattresses available at venue (BYO pillow and sleeping bag).
This workshop is guided by deep ecology perspectives that recognize that we live in an era characterised by the threat of extreme environmental problems. These problems are so big that they threaten the fabric of life on earth which causes us to feel great emotional despair and frustration. Yet we live in a culture where there is a profound denial of feeling and this affects our energy and effectiveness to turn this emotion into energy that makes change happen. To sustain our own work to keep reaching out to other people in the community with compassion, we need to draw on our feelings as a source of energy, not fight them. These processes will help those on the ongoing journey from despair to deepened empowerment.
Suggested donation: $80 students and unwaged, $150 waged. All profits will be donated to the Stop Adani Campaign, Frontline Action on Coal and the Wangan and Jagalingou Family Council. Please have cash to pay at the event.

The list of companies walking away from Adani’s toxic brand and climate-wrecking mega mine keeps growing. 59 companies, including 16 major insurers, have now ruled out working with Adani.
But Lloyd’s of London is still working with Adani to help the mining giant find insurance for its disastrous project.
Let’s flood the Lloyd’s office with calls now and let them know that allowing insurers to underwrite Adani’s coal mine is a risk we cannot afford!
Adani can’t build or operate their destructive coal mine and rail line without insurance.
A staff insider from US insurance giant AIG has confirmed AIG is insuring part of Adani’s mine project. Now is the time to tell AIG to insure our future, and not to renew insurance for Adani’s destructive coal mine.
On September 20, three days before the UN Emergency Climate Summit, the #StopAdani movement is stepping up to join the Global #ClimateStrike led by young people from the School Strike 4 Climate movement.
