An interesting day is offered on 

A spiritual basis for sustainable living

 April 14, 2012, Wandsworth Friends Meeting House, led by Alex Wildwood, £20

  Alex Wildwood has been offering workshops and retreats for the last twenty years, encouraging participants to engage with heart and mind as their embodied selves. Having trained in counselling, body-based psychotherapy, and in explorations of 'our deep ecology' with Buddhist social activist Joanna Macy, in the 1990s he founded the Everyman programme of men's events, combining therapy, ritual and time in nature. He is now a writer, educator and facilitator giving talks and running workshops which encourage people to rediscover our place in the wider community of life on Earth.
