Places available at unique and timely workshop
Transition Monaghan are holding a Deep Ecology workshop on Saturday 21st
October from 10am – 2pm in the Lough Muckno Gate Lodge, Castleblayney. This workshop aims to bring together like minded people who actively seek to make a positive impact on the environment and in their community. It is a step towards making a change for the better in our world.
Deep Ecology is defined as ‘an environmental movement and philosophy which regards human life as just one of many equal components of a global ecosystem’. In a series of indoor and outdoor activities drawing on Joanna Macy’s ‘The Work that Reconnects and Social Ecology’, this workshop will invite you to explore your own personal responses to place and the state of the planet, connect more deeply with others in attendance and create space for new perspectives for the next steps in your work / life.
The workshop will be facilitated by social ecologist, Kathryn Mc Cabe. Kathryn studied Science and Applied Physics at NUI Maynooth and subsequently achieved a radical masters in Australia on Social Ecology. She now works as an independent consultant for groups that are engaged in change i.e. community groups, schools, businesses, etc. She has lectured at the University of Western Sydney, has worked internationally guiding NGOs and large multinationals towards sustainability and well-being and has a special interest in youth Rites of Passage; delivering a summer program on Vancouver Island, Canada.
