Resource Yourself To Take Meaningful Action In This Extraordinary Time

Facilitator: Natalie Fee & Guest Collaborators Jonathon Porritt & Katie Hodgetts

Come gather round dear friends, wherever you roam. Join us and other change-makers to rejuvenate in nature and explore how to make a meaningful contribution at this critical moment in time.

We are living through a time of profound disruption that is bringing both great loss and huge potential. Many of us are asking how we can meet the multiple crises we face in a way that generates the hope and renewal we desperately need for ourselves, our communities and our planet.

This weekend – with Natalie Fee and guest collaborators Jonathon Porritt and Katie Hodgetts – provides an opportunity to come together, resource ourselves and explore how we might navigate our way through this extraordinary time. The intention is to pause, breathe, gather our energies and revisit our personal sense of purpose and meaning. Together we will unwind, reflect, reconnect and revive.
