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 Adani Group wants to rebrand itself as a leader on climate change and clean energy. But there’s a big problem - Adani are mining, handling, and burning record volumes of coal - the number one driver of the climate crisis.
