If you are Stroud based then we are gathering soon as a group of women, men, young people and children for Earth Protection.
The sessions use Active Hope inspired processes and the Work That Reconnects .This 'map' is being infused with song, movement, music, group processes, sharings and ceremony to help us to feel, strengthen and unite.
The sessions include songs that can support the XR April week of actions and will gather energy to work towards the Sing For Earth Day celebrations.
