What suggests do you have to forward the movement?

I don't come with an agenda and wish to get a feel for this movement and see where I may be useful. I have been involved in quite full on activism and also coordination of campaigns. These days I find the activist identity difficult as this has become quite egoic for me. I look for useful work. I feel actions need an element of the provocative; unsettling, disturbing - to break through the trance that so holds us. I just watched the six episodes of culture in decline and wondered what a flyer around the words about billionaires and their obsessive grasping distributed around say Brighton might bring up. Yes there's stuff from my side there but I do feel like exploring things a bit unconventionally. I found myself on the board of the Bayside Climate Change Action group last year, as a beginning of a return to activism; well that's not a place for me to be. I began studying psychotherapy this year.

Introduction

I've been active in ecology and anti militarism since the 70s and the last seven years involoved in a European engaged Buddhist Sangha( very existential). I'm 59, have a partner living overseas and have spent much of the last 10 years in Europe/Asia
