Reconnect with your body to purposefully tackle climate change

Training for coaches who want to tackle climate change authentically.

About this event

This was held on Thursday 4th March 2021 as part of the CCA 24 Hour Conversation.

In this workshop you will learn how to reconnect with your body using embodiment techniques to determine the most authentic way in which you can help to tackle climate change.

You will learn about the EAST Method and how to use these tai chi-based movements to get to the heart of what drives you and how you can really make a difference to the world.

This is more than just beating stress or relaxing. We will experience and experiment with the basics of the EAST Method, practising a 5 movement set and using it as a personal enquiry exercise.

The slow, gentle movements are suitable for all but if you have any special requirements, please ask.
