Active Hope and the Seventh Generation Experience

26 Sep


This event has passed.

Step into the future and hold a conversation with your descendants to hear their advice and support!

Did you know that Hope can be something you “do” rather than just what you “feel”? The Haudenosaunee First Nations people of North America follow a principle that everything they do should ensure a sustainable world for at least the next seven generations. The “Seventh Generation Experience” is an imaginative activity that puts us into dialogue with future beings – who become very real to us. Through this guided activity, we use our imagination to travel to the future and meet these beings who view us as their ancestors living at this pivotal time on earth. When we speak as future beings to someone in the present, tremendous compassion, hope, wisdom, and insight pour through.

This workshop, inspired by the Work That Reconnects movement, is offered by the sUStain eco-anxiety project at Norfolk and Waveney Mind

This activity is part of Mind, Body, Earth, a programme that seeks to provide empathetic spaces where anxieties about our climate and the future can be safely expressed and explored, developed in partnership with Norfolk and Waveney Mind. Norfolk and Waveney Mind is a leading local Mental Health provider and we believe nobody should face poor mental health alone. We are here for you at any stage of your wellbeing journey.
