The national Transition Network with Transition Lancaster, Transition Kendal, and other local initiatives, are planning this first 2014 roadshow event. it featuresTransition Network's trademark, participatory style of workshops,
Open Space, great hang outs and engaging conversations.
It's guaranteed to be fantastic.
Are you already involved in Transition in the North West or would you like to be? Have you ever wondered if starting a Transition enterprise is for you? Or how to avoid burn out? Do you want to make connections and share ideas? This day is made for you. You will be able to choose from a dizzying variety of workshops and sessions, presentations and talks. There will be space to discuss a pressing local issue and the degree to which Transition can offer a response. Rob will be speaking. You'll be able to hear about all the great Transition work underway in the area. It will be buzzy, fun and connecting. Plus, of course, some relaxed time in the evening to chat over a coffee or something stronger, with music and other entertainment.

Nest indoor meeting sept 14th
This is an open meeting and everyone is very welcome - please arrive by 10 to 7 as the meeting starts at 7 and it is difficult to get access to the building after we start!
We are a growing group with a 'self organising' meeting - sharing ideas, inspirations and good conversations around the general theme of 'deep ecoology' - our deep relationship with the planet we live on. And that we are composed of! We also sometimes share Joanna Macy's 'work that reconnects' and any poems, news or inspirations that we may bring! It's all very open and alive.
We generally meet the second sunday of the month. please see the 'groups page' for more info or give Margaret a call.

Heart of Transition group meeting
NEXT - Sunday 6th July
7.00pm at the Quaker Meeting House
The meetings of the group called Exploring the Heart of Transition take place on the first Sunday of the month at the Quaker Meeting House at 7pm and finish at 9pm. This group is an ongoing creative exploration into the nature of consciousness. There is no leader and no agenda but we support each other in attempting to delve safely and deeply into the nature of the mind to see if a transition is possible.

Every week - Sewing/crotcheting/ knitting cafe
Now upstairs at Hester's Haberdashery in Gage St.
Drop in anytime between 2-5 pm - every monday afternoon - FREE !
The TCL sewing cafe is
growing and changing; new people coming all the time yet we have
a comfortable number of very friendly makers every Monday, 2-5pm. This
is all about RESKILLING - about learning skills from one another that help
build a more resilient - less 'throwaway' Lancaster. The projects
range from embroidery, crochet, rug making, and tailoring right through to experimenting with fleecing and using shrunken
clothes to make slippers and hotwater bottle covers. We are an inventive lot. Now many of us are knitting
clothes for a charity. Come along and find out what you would like to do.
We have all the basic equipment you would need, you just need to bring
your own materials. Hot drinks are available.
Contact Wendy on 01524 60497 for any further details
Or e mail Wendy on email@example.com for directions or any other info . . . .
