Mindful Consuming

An online six-week course with Pam Candea & Kristine Mackenzie
Please note that booking is for the whole course, the sessions are not intended to be stand-alone events.

Are you curious about the impact of your choices, and how you might live a little lighter? In this 6 week course, together we will look at how we as earthlings of the 21st century in Scotland may have more options with regards to our (carbon) footprint than we realise. In a friendly, curious, and mindful way we will explore themes like energy and travel, food and stuff, but also resilience, (self-)compassion, lobbying and activism. No blame and shame, but a safe space to see with clear eyes where we can exercise our freedom of choice and how we can align to our own deepest values in our everyday life.

Each session will include some mindfulness meditation and informational elements, as well as space for our own experience and reflections, in a supportive and non-judgemental context with experienced facilitators who are nonetheless in the same boat and wrestling with the same questions.

Pam has been working to promote sustainable and resilient society actively since returning to a cherished ambition after a long career in the commercial world in 2007. She now works with community, public sector, and commercial organisations to help bring about change to tackle dangerous climate change.

Kristine is a mindfulness teacher and trained facilitator in The Work That Reconnects. She runs Earthy Mindfulness and offers workshops and mindfulness sessions about reconnecting with both our inner world and the world around us: the awareness of being an inextricable part of this one wild and precious earth.

For whom: This workshop is open to anyone, no previous experience in mindfulness or specific life-style is required. We hope to bring together a diverse and intergenerational group, and deepen our collective learning.
