Following the success of the Easter 2008 conference, Positive Energy: Creative Community Responses to Peak Oil and Climate Change, we have decided to keep going forward. Where the primary focus of Positive Energy 1 was awareness-raising and inspiration, Positive Energy 2 will showcase tangible, successful models developed by communities to enhance their resilience in the face of the twin challenges of peak oil and climate change.
Not that Positive Energy 2 will be short on inspiration! The first half of the week will take us on a journey of exploration, in the company of visionary poet David Whyte, and founder of Mythodrama, Richard Olivier. We will develop tools for inner resilience, learning to become more aware of the needs of our communities and our world.
The second half of the week will be spent in the company of visionaries and pioneers working on the ground to strengthen the fabric of their communities and to anchor them firmly in their own bioregions.
It is possible to book the first two and a half days of the conference, which is a stand-alone workshop for those not wishing to stay for the full duration of Positive Energy 2. This is the David Whyte/Richard Olivier workshop called Through the Dark Woods, which runs from Saturday lunchtime until Monday evening. For more information please click here.
