As a Co-founder of Transition Town Totnes, the first Transition Town, and of Transition Training, I have facilitated many people, in many cultures in both beginning and following their journey to personal and community resilience.
There is, as yet, no end to the process that Transition Towns, and now Deep Adaptation has mapped. Our world and our lives are continually and rapidly changing, making deep adaptation a necessity to enable us to live well in times of change. My journey has been to continually realign myself, my values, and my work with present day realities, and I am happy to sit alongside others as we explore this world together. My approach is gentle, generative, non judgemental, and generally involves ‘being with’ rather then ‘prescribing for’.
A few other things about me:
I co-designed and co-facilitated the first Deep Adaptation Deep Dive in December 2018, and am part of a group who are exploring what ‘Deep Adaptation’ means both personally and as a society.
I am currently working with Gaia Education developing new ways of delivering regenerative education for the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
Myself and Liam Kavanaugh of Art Earth Tech are birthing a new project currently called Contemplative Activism. Contemplative Activism is seeing the world as it is, and learning to act and be when we have no ground under our feet, drawing on the world’s great contemplative traditions.
Before the Transition movement took over my life I lived and worked in an eco community (and am currently again), was managing director of a landscape company, a gaffer in the film industry, and taught meditation. I am joyfully aware of the preciousness of life, my capacity for love, and my own mortality, and am father to two lovely daughters and two equally gorgeous grandchildren.
