I am a passionate environmental educator, community activist, andmother of two sons. I have been lucky to have experienced Deep Ecology/The Work That Reconnects first hand with John Seed and Joanna Macy, and have been a student of Insight Buddhism for the past ten years. I am a founding member of the Centre for Ecological Learning (CEL), located in the lush Bellingen Valley in NSW Australia. The WTR has been the foundation for my work with young people in our local environmental youth group, as well as workshops and retreats that I have facilitated over the years through CEL (www.cel.org.au orwww.facebook.com/CentreForEcologicalLearningInc). It also informs my current research as a PhD student exploring the life experiences of women environmental activists.
