Occupy Ourselves - Rethinking ourselves in a post-capitalist world with Petrea King

  • Ngara Institute "Politics in the Pub" Courthouse Hotel, cnr Burringbar & Dalley St Mullumbimby, NSW Australa (map)

Change is happening all around us. In some cases, it’s life-enhancing, in others less so. We talk about changing things out there, dismantling corporate rule, global capitalism. But what about us, personally and collectively?

Some say change starts from within, a sort of precondition for larger transformation. Is that true? If so, how and why is this important? If we are to create a better world - one based on equity, peace and sustainability - then what of our interior worlds? Have we ‘privatised’ our personal journeys? Where do the personal and the political meet? What does this mean in terms of building community, neighbourhoods and society?

Petrea King takes us on an exploratory journey into who we are and what we might become as we face the particular challenge of our times. This will be fascinating and different! 

Since Petrea faced her own life-threatening illness, she has counselled tens of thousands of people living with cancer and other life-challenging illnesses, grief, loss, trauma and tragedy. She is at the forefront of wellness education and is a frequent lecturer at medical and other conferences. Petrea sees crisis as a catalyst for personal growth and understanding and as an opportunity for healing and peace.

Come, listen and join the discussion at Politics in the Pub at  the Court House Hotel, Mullumbimby on 26th April at 6.30pm.
