Right Livelihood - Creating Meaningful Work in Challenging Times

We live in extraordinary times. Rarely has so much rested on the choices, responses and contributions of one generation......

Satish Kumar & Jonathan Dawson ask how can we rise to the challenge of the moment, seeing opportunity in place of burden; call to vocation and service in place of fear and drudgery?

This week, starting Sat 13th July, offers opportunities for meditation, reflection, pilgrimage and exploration of the role of work in today's world. We will spend time alone in nature, walking in the Scottish Highlands, studying emerging trends and opportunities in the social economy and learning from each other in our emerging explorations of meaningful work.

Income related price; £535 / £665 / £875

Satish Kumar is a former Jain monk and long-term peace and environment activist. He is co-founder of Schumacher College and editor of Resurgence & Ecologist magazine. His autobiography, No Destination, describes the 8,000-mile pilgrimage he made on foot and without money from India to America, via Moscow, London and Paris, to deliver a humble packet of 'peace tea' to the then leaders of the world's four nuclear powers. He is also the author of You Are, Therefore I Am: A Declaration of Dependence, The Buddha and the Terrorist, and The Earth Pilgrim.

Until recently, long-term resident of the Findhorn ecovillage and a former President of the Global Ecovillage Network, he has spent 30 years working in the field of community economic development in Africa and Europe.

Help us keep the Ecologist platform going

Since 2012, the Ecologist has been owned and published by a small UK-based charity called the Resurgence Trust. We work hard to support the kind of independent journalism and comment that we know Ecologist readers enjoy but we need your help to keep going. We do all this on a very small budget with a very small editorial team and so joining the Trust or making a donation will show us you value our work and support the platform which is currently offered as a free service.
