It’s the end of ‘business as usual’. The time has come to weave together a new social reality in alignment with our values, and to create an economic system that benefits us all. A system fit for the real world.
Based on the Human Scale Development framework of Chilean economist Manfred Max-Neef, this workshop offers the chance to come together and dive deeply into the challenges we are facing and gain a new perspective on what is possible. It includes practical tools to engage your community, thought provoking presentations, group discussions and fun interactive exercises that will equip you to be an effective change-maker in your community.
You will learn:
• Models that integrate economics, ecology and wellbeing
• How concepts like ‘Gift culture’ and ‘Re-localisation’ fit into a new economic paradigm
• How to incorporate the concept of ‘Fundamental Human Needs’ into project design
• A range of practical tools for catalysing local innovation and enterprise.“
Our focus has always been the wellbeing of our community. With this training we have acquired practical guidelines for meeting people’s fundamental needs as well as the tools to create successful projects.” Maria, Spain
|Workshop leaders Inez Aponte and Jay Tompt are experienced facilitators. They are deeply involved in a number of education and community regeneration projects with Transition Town Totnes and work with groups across Europe.|

This autumn the Happy City Initiative is running an 8-week evening class in the Happiness Habits, a scientifically-grounded programme of simple actions which, with practice, grow well-being and build resilience to depression. Each session involves a mix of activities, conversations, creativity and reflection on themes such as positive emotions, optimism, meaning & purpose and strengths. There’s also a habit to practise between sessions so that by the end of the 8-week programme you will have mastered the tools that raise and recover well-being and experienced a positive change.
The course trainer is one of the UK’s first positive psychologists Miriam Akhtar - the co-presenter of theHappiness Training Plan, author of Positive Psychology for Overcoming Depression and a contributor to the World Book of Happiness. Miriam is also a Bristol Happiness Champion.

Friday Sept 20th 7.30pm till 9pm at Yogasara Studio
10-12 Picton Street
Hosted by Bristol DANCE (Dharma Action Network for Climate Engagement)
This is a movie about the reality of climate change. Speeding towards a 2 degree rise in planetary temperature already and still major governments are just paying lip service to any necessary changes. We are predicted to hit a 4 degree rise before any deceleration of temperature rise. Why is this happening? 99% of the evidence points directly to our use of fossil fuels..
This screening is for any Yogi or Dharma practitioner concerned about the world and about climate change.
‘Do The Math’ is a 40 minute documentary about the rising movement to change the maths of the climate crisis and challenge the fossil fuel industry.
It chronicles climate crusader and scientist Bill McKibben and the growing groundswell of the 350.org movement as it kicks into action round the world.
This will be the first in a series of screenings and discussions aiming to explore ongoing dharma responses to climate change.
