Inner Transition: an introduction

September 15, 2016 at 11:09 am 1 comment

tentsTo me, getting to the heart of inner transition is about understanding our own dual nature: if we feel threatened we are likely to get in a mode of fleeing the scene, aggressively fighting for what we want or just freezing. But absent the feeling of threat we are calm, relaxed, loving and often generous.

The prospect of having less fossil fuel or money to go round puts most people into threat mode. But in threat mode we are not thinking long-term. It is just this problem that faces civil society when developing the dialogue around how we can develop society to show more planet care and at the same time more people care and fair share.  We need to create the space where the dialogue can be held without fear driving us.

    This is essential. Thanks for posting. We are in North Glengarry and can offer workshops and set-ups of Restorative Circles in Transition Town groups. Also Non-Violent Communication experience and practice.
