An Introduction to The Great Turning


This evening workshop, led by Centre Director Julia MacDonald, is designed to help provide a contextual overview of the current crises we face and the invitations being presented to us at this unprecedented time in human history on the earth.

It offers an introduction to what some name the ‘Great Turning’ or the ‘Great Transition’ of our time—the movement away from destructive modes of being on the planet into a life-sustaining society where we become creative and generative members of the whole life community on earth.

The workshop will provide:

  • a ‘deep time’ perspective of our current position at this point in human history on planet earth
  • a framework for how we can focus our faith, energies, gifts and talents to enable and support creative change

Space will given for personal reflection, shared conversation and exploration.

This workshop will be helpful to those working in parish or community settings who wish to root practical local responses to the climate crisis in a bigger picture context and draw inspiration from the ‘deep-time’ dynamics of the unfolding creation.

Julia is Director of St Bede’s with a particular interest in spirituality, cosmology and ecology.
