Event Description

We would like to host a party around the theme of robustness. It is a real party with cake and food and drinks AND there will be stimuli that may be conversation starters about the concept of being robust in this life (energy, food, water, finances, place, people and health). We believe there is a good chance the combined impact of peak oil, climate change, economic re-adjustments and politicians will create uncertain times. How you can ride those changes happily and thrive has been the subject of our thinking for many years and we are gradually setting ourselves up to be robust.

This is a gathering to start the new year and in a free flow discovery chat for all who are interested. Just come along with something to share. ph 33 424 715
It will be followed by a weekend retreat in February ($ 4 pppd) in a Gorge near Aratula for those who really want to explore more and perhaps also get to the (shared or individual) doing.

These are the topics that will be dialogued. If you have anything interesting on any, bring it! This has also been advertised in other places and around 15 people have rsvp'd so far.
