“...a mad weir of tigerish waters, a prism of delight and pain…”
Come and join us for this 6th UK ecopsychology gathering. The week we met to start planning this gathering a fracking site in Lancashire was given the green light by the Tory government - news which seeped into our meeting. The 'fraktured psyche' emerged from our collective dreaming, alongside flaming tigers, watery shores, and a mighty winged lammergeier, along with other birds, bees and sacred messengers.
This space will be a chance to join together in reflection, resistance, dream, play, learning, celebration and action as we join forces in celebrating the delight and feeling the pain. There'll be offerings of bodywork as we unfurl into the day... social dreaming as we gather together... keynotes and a fascinating panel of workshops as we share learning and practice... open spaces for spontaneous and strategic offerings... music, dancing and offerings around the fire.
As ever we will have the chance to live alongside the thousands of other-than-human species living in this beautiful part of Worcestershire, with swimming in the river Teme and the reservoir and scenic walks. We'll be welcomed, hosted and fed by the generous-spirited people of Green and Away at their tented conference centre. So whether this will be your first visit, or you're a seasoned participant, we look forward to seeing you at this year's event....
We shall be releasing more detailed information throughout the new year - here are a few things already on the programme:
...'Seize the Day' will play on the Saturday evening
...Environmental artist Jess Tanner will be supporting us in bringing images from the social dreaming to life, amongst other things
...We'll have the chance to meet Tina Rothery, the Lancashire anti-fracking activist
