The Work that Reconnects has helped me personally connect more deeply with my despair and has empowered me to be more active in my work in the world. Over the last few years I have been running a small community interest company in London, teaching Permaculture and ecological food production and engaging local residents in re-imagining the public space. My work has always been informed by deep ecology and my buddhist practice. I am now a coordinator of the Happy Farm supporting the buddhist monastery Plum Village in southern France.
I am a Permaculture Teacher teaching in London and around Europe. I integrate the Work that Reconnects and deep ecology into my Permaculture teaching and believe it enriches people's experience of belonging, community and connection to the web of life.
I have been running Work that Reconnects workshops at festivals and have held a monthly group for a few years in London. I would love to meet other people facilitating the work and exchange with them.
Audiences I work with
I have been working mainly with Transition Towns and Permaculture groups as well as festival crowds at Buddhafield and the like. I am hoping to work more with Buddhists in the future.
Experience facilitating other events & workshops
What year did you begin facilitating the Work That Reconnects?
I have facilitated numerous Permaculture Design Courses and included the inner dimension and deep ecology as one of the covered subjects on the course.
I have organised and facilitated a one day Coming Back to Life workshop in Luxembourg (my home country) for people from the local transition network and other NGO: http://www.sociallandscapes.co.uk/blog/2015/9/9/coming-back-to-life-workshop-in-luxembourg
