I first became interested in the Transition Town movement when living in Totnes, Devon a few years back. I've since moved to Glastonbury where I am an active member. I blog about 'financial mindfulness' or organic money management, sometimes with a peak oil slant and always sharing my personal journey towards inner resilience.
I wake up to a beautiful sunny day and Lokabandhu and I exchange memories of the yatra (walking meditation) we did six or seven years ago. I hear his tale on transition Glastonbury and the core group folding; the last big event and the conflict that put everyone off doing another and how though the working groups continue there isn’t as yet energy to restart the core group or equivalent.
Led a protest against a Wimpey building site in 1962, graduated to delivering leaflets for FoE in 1971, got my psychology degree and left to join the revolution. Moved back into a house after 20 years off the grid, dug up the lawn to make an experimental tyre garden and got involved with local politics.
Founded the charity Medical Welfare which was initially aimed at providing these services at events, but is now also engaged in resilience training.
Director of a business supplying stewards and security to events.
