Stillness in Action develops wisdom, calmness, courage and clarity to sustain a life of freedom and integrity in challenging times.

Take the opportunity to:
Learn a simple meditation to still the confusions of the mind - allowing wisdom and compassion to arise, and freeing your intellectual, emotional and creative intelligence; 
Renew your spirit for restoring a sustainable environment, for building a just and equitable society, for participating in healthy and creative communities, for personal and social healing;
Strengthen confidence, kindness and joy - and your power to make a difference - through processes of deep ecology, systems science and ancient earth wisdom;
Use practical tools to clarify your values and intentions and move them into action; 
Learn how to build sustaining communities of friendship.
Nurture and refresh your body and mind through walking, yoga, journalling and silent contemplation in the beauty of nature.
