Special Practice Group, Talk and Community Dinner

NSW | Bondi Junction

Date: Sunday, 20 November, 2016 | Time: 5:00 pm - 8:15 pm | Price: $33

Hopefully mindfulness is not just for us to feel better personally, but has the potential for us to know deeply our interconnectedness and act to reduce suffering for ourselves and others. We will be meeting each month to explore the work of Joanna Macy to support our care and actions in the world. 

This Sunday on November the 20th, the theme will be about getting informed about renewable energy possibilities.  

About our presenter:

Bir Ravinder is a volunteer for Beyond Zero Emissions, which is a renewable energy think tank focused on developing detailed plans to eliminate Australia's carbon emissions. Outside of this Bir is undertaking a degree in Electrical Engineering, focusing on renewable energy technologies. While working as a solutions designer for an engineering, procurement and construction company in the energy efficiency industry.

Following is an outline of the presentation:

We will use our practice, and our conversation to explore how we can move effortlessly towards more connection and "response-abilty" in relation to our world inside us and also more widely. Come an commune with us!

All proceeds will go to Beyond Zero Emissions

About Beyond Zero 

Beyond Zero Emissions is an Australian research and education centre created in 2006 to help governments, businesses and individuals address one fundamental question: How can Australia transition to a zero emissions economy?

Our research shows how Australia can achieve rapid reductions of greenhouse gas emissions from the transport, energy, agriculture, export, buildings and industry sectors. Our work is carried out by a small staff of experts, with the help of a large network of volunteer scientists, engineers and economists, and academic institutions. We are funded by private foundations and concerned individuals.

What People Are Saying

I gained a lot from this course! I would definitely recommend it to friends and already have. I hadn’t been feeling ‘myself’ at the start of the course, and hadn’t been for almost a year. I had long term RSI which has gotten better in the 8 weeks – not 100% yet, but better than 6-8 months of physio beforehand! I feel myself again, and friends and work colleagues have noticed I seem happier, less stressed and I feel able to cope with stresses easier.

Tracey, 2017

Inner strength, confidence through knowing myself better, a more positive view of my future knowing that all I need is to turn into my pain and remember it will pass

Anna, 2016

It has definitely changed relationships in my life. Also it has helped me deal with confrontation a lot better. It has helped me become a lot more task focussed and given me the skill to see where my mind often wanders and why it goes to certain places. Loved the course and would recommend it to everyone.

Lacee, 2015

The course has made me feel a lot calmer in a busy life. It has reminded me to stop and smell the roses. It has taught me that awareness – is just that – not complicated! That meditation is not about stopping all thoughts but acknowledging them and letting them pass and then focussing back on the here and now.

Lisa 2016

It is hard to verbalise the surprisingly profound impact this experience (so much more than a course) has had on me. It has been so complete—spiritually, emotionally, professionally and intellectually.
