Event description

Description

How to do justice work that is adaptive, focuses on the small things that make up all large systems, and prioritizes critical connections over critical mass?


This urban retreat at 42 ACRES Shoreditch is a space for conversations and to explore what self care and balance could look like for you - and why it's fundamental.

This is about how you increase your impact by developing greater compassion for yourself. And also how this is a vital part of building your capacity to influence others.

It's also about connecting with the beautiful world we live in. The day will explore many aspects of living in connection and flow so you can be a balanced and awesome changemaker!

This is for all who care, are concerned and who want to play their part in changing things in the world today.


Content

The day will include deep and nourishing sharing, bodywork and movement, creative expression and exercises as well as time for you to reflect on what self care truly embedded in your life could look like for you.

Lunch and refreshments included.

A few reduced price places are available. Get in touch if you'd like to apply.


Led by Ivan Jurin, Elsie Bryant and Felipe Viveros of 42 ACRES


About Ivan

Ivan has ten years of experience in international development work across a medley of roles and for a plethora of philanthropic foundations, academic institutions and civil society organisations. He has managed projects on Extractive Industry Governance in West Africa, Human Rights Protection of the Guarani in Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina, Community Empowerment through Education in Cambodia, Thailand and Indonesia as well as numerous Refugee Protection and Integration programmes across South Eastern Europe. Ivan has worked as nonprofit consultant with Oxfam, Human Rights Watch, and Impact Hub, as researcher for the University of Cambridge and University of Göttingen, as campaigner for People and Planet and as evaluator for Ashoka and EPIM.

Ivan is location independent, and when not busy at work he can be found reading Emerson, Seneca or Tolstoy in a hemp hammock somewhere near a waterfall.


About Elsie

Elsie is an activist, organiser, writer and creative with a focus on systemic change that eradicates dehumanising inequity and facilitates environmental regeneration. She works in leadership and supporting roles to challenge dominant narratives in pursuit of more just economic and political systems with interconnectedness and anti-colonialism at their heart.


Elsie is currently the Digital Communications Director of The Rules, a global collective of activists and organisers addressing the roots causes of inequality and poverty. She also runs a project: 'British Empire State of Mind' to challenge Britain's colonial mentality and authors 'Development Truths', a critical development blog that challenges the workings of the 'international development' sector. Elsie's work has been published with Ijinle Africa (Voix), ZOD Culture, UN Dispatch, Humanosphere, The Dawn and A Room of Our Own.

Prior to her role at The Rules Elsie was a freelance communications consultant for clients pursuing radical social and environmental justice. Working closely with peace builder and Nobel Peace Prize nominee Dr. Scilla Elworthy; conscious leadership expert Karen Downes and as part of the core team for Rising Women Rising World, Elsie is embedded in the world of conscious global change.

Elsie's experience of the full spectrum of the 'incredible' to the 'incredibly problematic' within the social change sector has inspired her to seek new ways of achieving social justice that breaks the chains of perpetuating systemic problems and pushes the global narrative in a new direction, working in solidarity with those on the frontline of oppression and injustice.
