How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
Organizing a Training for Transition in NYC on May 16/17 and July 18/19.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I am enthusiastic about making a contribution to humans transition to more regenerative, resilient practices where we place ourselves in the circle with all other life on Earth.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement? What can YOU teach us? What can your GROUP teach us?
I am an Ecovillage Design Education facilitator, working in Scotland and Thailand and soon the US.
My main areas of focus are creating contexts for collaborations that are effective and fun, where all voices are heard. I have taken a deep path in reconnecting with and listening to nature and facilitating people to join in.
I used Deep Ecology inspired practices and where possible bring movement into the experience. I design and install single path labyrinths using permaculture principles as much as possible. And also facilitate workshops using them.
I am experimenting with urban permaculture in NYC. Currently making a medicinal herb garden using sheet mulching.
