Event description

Description

Deep Adaptation offers a framework for living in a time of climate catastrophe which starts from the understanding that societal collapse due to climate change and ecological derangement is inevitable and already happening in some places. How then might we choose to live in a time of uncertain futures? Jem Bendell, Professor of Sustainability Leadership at Cumbria University who proposed the term Deep Adaptation, offers four starting points known as the 4R’s – Resilience, Relinquishment, Restoration and Reconciliation. This one- day workshop will use a mixture of movement practice, meditation and group discussion to reflect on these themes.

The day will be co-facilitated by Claire Pençak, Jim Griffin and Tim Rubidge all of whom will bring their individual professional practices and experience to working with the group. This event is open to anyone curious about Deep Adaptation. Absolutely no experience or proficiency is required in movement, meditation or Deep Adaptation. All of these are simply starting places for reflection, conversation, understanding and perhaps collective and individual action.

The morning sessions will begin with some preparatory breath and movement practice to bring us into awareness followed by an introduction to Deep Adaptation and a period of reflection and meditation before breaking for lunch where conversations can continue over food.

The afternoon session will be devoted to an Open Space process led by Tim Rubidge. Open Space is a self -organizing process for collective activity and shared leadership where the group creates the agenda or discussion questions for the afternoon.

We recommend wearing comfortable clothing that you can move in, warm socks or comfortable flat footwear. Bring food to share for lunch and we will provide a table to gather round.
