A one day workshop using The Work that Reconnects, as formulated by Joanna Macy http://www.joannamacy.net. This workshop will create a space to look at our concerns for the condition of our world, and to strengthen our ability to respond appropriately. It uses experiential exercises to explore how to use the energy of our emotional responses, reconnect with our passion to act for life and transform concern for the world into creative engagement. It will be led by Anna McIvor, Bev Sedley and Julian Briggs. Please bring: a packed lunch, warm socks, a cushion if you like to sit on the floor, outdoor clothes and a beautiful object from nature to brighten up the room.

  • Strawberry Fair

A warm welcome to the 70 people who signed-up to our e-mail bulletin at Strawberry Fair! It was a fantastic day and the first outing for our newly-designed Transition Cambridge Stall. Thanks to Naveen, Irma and the Food Group for all their work in bringing the Stall to life with beautiful banners and hangings! If you fancy spending an hour or two helping out at one of the many stall-outings being held over the Environment festival please get in touch. It's a great way to connect with your fellow Transitioners and spend some time in the local community. Don't worry, you don't need to have any special knowledge or skills, and you don't have to commit yourself to being there all day! Please contact Jono

  • National LiftShare Day - Tuesday 9th

This year, National liftshare Day (NLSD) takes place on Tuesday 9 June. The popular event aims to raise the profile of car-sharing and encourage and enable more people give it a try. And in view of the economic climate, the focus this year is on the many hundreds of pounds that regular car-sharers can save every year. How much could you save? More info here

Make sure that you get to as many events as you can this week - because next week there's even more!

Cheers
