Sustaining Ourselves (non-Green Party workshop)

Sustaining Ourselves: Developing personal and group resilience

Being involved in campaigns and taking action on issues of social and environmental justice can be immensely rewarding. It can also pose challenges. How do we respond to overwhelming news? How do we deal with insufficient political action without burning out, feeling overwhelmed by despair or taking our frustrations out on other group members? How do we sustain our motivation and keep our hearts open? How can we make our groups and campaigns more successful, and more welcoming to others?

A taster evening Tuesday 26th September 7-9.30pm followed by a one day workshop Saturday 25th November 11am – 4pm for people who want to explore healthier and more effective ways of working together and looking after themselves. You are welcome to attend one or both workshops.

The workshops will be facilitated by Jo Hamilton and Kathryn Tulip, trainers and campaigners with many years experience of working with social justice movements.


For more information or to book a place:
email sustainingourselves101@gmail.com or call Jo on 07941 135 664. Places are limited. Booking for the taster workshop closes on Tuesday 19th September and for the one day workshop on Saturday 11th November.

Cost: The workshops are offered on a ‘pay what you can’ basis with a suggested donation of £10 for the evening workshop and £30 for the day workshop. If payment is a problem, please contact us, as we don’t want to exclude anyone for financial reasons. We are grateful for financial support from the Mid-Counties Cooperative.
