This conversation is for anybody who is deeply concerned about the climate and other interconnected predicaments – and is curious to learn more about what they and their local community could be doing NOW to prepare and adapt for what may be a very different way of life.

Some of you may be members of Extinction Rebellion, and/or local Transition Town organisations. You may work in local government, or a community group. And it doesn’t matter if you’re not a member of any organisation! It’s enough if you are a citizen.

Even for those of us who are awake to the emergency, the conclusions from the latest science force us to go beyond our usual narratives about the planetary predicaments we face. If we’re able to face the situation honestly, we no longer have time for a gentle and gradual transition.

We are a group of Hertfordshire residents who accept that extreme disruption, and possibly even societal collapse is likely or inevitable in our lifetimes, or is already occurring. We are committed to contributing to local community resilience, both practically and emotionally. We seek to inform and support local leaders in political and local community organisations, and encourage them to be curious and open minded about collapse and its implications.

We’re all about responding lovingly to our predicaments, and telling the truth. We look forward to connecting with you!


We look forward to connecting with you!

Connection, Resilience, Courage

For those who have already experienced our 2-hour Introductory Webinar, this is an opportunity to reconnect, share what’s going on with you, ask questions, exchange ideas, and process your emotions in a safe, loving space.

In order to support others, we have to take care of ourselves.  We will respond to what the group needs at this time – but the call will undoubtedly have themes of emotional resilience and courage.


We look forward to connecting with you!

“The Edge”

A 4-day Retreat

Are you somebody who has woken up to the climate and ecological emergency we are facing?

This is a 4-day retreat for people who wish to inquire, in good company, into the question “So, what now?”

As we wake up to the interconnected predicaments facing humanity, this retreat is a way to create a clearing in the dense forest of your life, and uncover your own unique answers to the questions:

“What’s mine to do?” and

“How can I make a difference?”

There are no simple blueprints, no one right way, no universal action plans we can follow.

However, we do seem to experience ‘nudges’ from wisdom, that we can choose to trust and follow. I love to imagine that we are all weaving something together – but there are an infinite number of individual threads – and there are some that may be ours to pick up.

The immersive retreat is an opportunity to deepen your inquiry into what matters most now.
