The Wisdom To Survive
A screening and spiral process to stay engaged with the difficult realities of these times.
Wednesday 7th January, 7pm – 9.30pm
The Mansion, 36a Fore Street, Totnes, TQ9 5RP
On Wednesday 7th January in Totnes, Devon…
you are warmly invited to an evening film screening of The Wisdom to Survive – followed by a spiral council … a held space for deeper engagement with the realities that the film brings to you. There will be no pressure to engage with the process more than feels right for you, and simple witnessing is warmly invited.
Thought leaders and activists come together to help us face the present and envision the future. The Wisdom to Survive accepts the consensus of scientists that climate change has already arrived, and asks, what is keeping us from action? The film features thought leaders and activists in the realms of of science, economics and spirituality discussing how we can evolve and take action in the face of climate disruption. They urge us to open ourselves to the beauty that surrounds us and get to work on ensuring it survives.
Climate change, the depletion of oil, economic upheaval and mass extinction together create a planetary emergency of overwhelming proportions. We live at a time of great uncertainty and the challenges we face can feel overwhelming. How then should we rise up to the challenge and play our part in the story of creating the future we hope for? What helps us give our best response to our concerns for the world? How do we refresh our energy and inspiration so that we continue to act?
The screening will be followed with a spiral council practice that explores how we can stay nourished, energised, empowered and inspired in the transition to a sustainable, life-affirming society.
The film screening will be held on Wednesday 7th January in the Upstairs hall at the Mansion, 36a Fore Street, Totnes, TQ9 5RP (entrance next to the Library).
Doors open at 6.30pm, and the film will start at 7pm. The event will end around 9.40pm.
The evening is free but donations are warmly welcome.
