Addressing Inner Transition

Inner transition represents the spiritual and mental side of the necessary technical move from fossil fuels (partly motivated by the climate threat) to a more planet and people-friendly lifestyle. The change is often framed as meaning we need to give things up, make do with less, face harder times etc. Because of this, change to sustainability and promotion of peace that comes with sustainability, meet resistance.

We need to better understand the emotional response to these changes as well as the context in which we are trying to operate. This is one of the aims of Inner Transition.

Stephen Hinton recently gave a short introduction to Inner Transition at a garden workshop in Sweden.
