Transition Wolfville Area is hosting a special INNER TRANSITION course with Heidi Kalyani, beginning March 31st.
A note from Heidi:
"For me, sustainable and effective transition and transformation require a blend of inspired action and thoughtful intention, all grounded in a heart-based sense of meaning and purpose. It is this inner work that provides the clarity, resilience, and connection with purpose that keeps us going even when things seem huge or hard."

THE HEART OF CONNECTION
Holding space is a powerful practice for cultivating and sustaining vibrant, authentic, meaningful connection and relationships — with ourselves, others and the world around us. Although belonging is a deep-rooted human need, many of the ways we commonly interact and communicate actually create disconnection and separation instead. The practice of holding space offers a beautiful and transformative alternative, which can be applied to personal, work or community life.
This inner transition work is a powerful way of creating the more beautiful and resilient world our hearts know is possible!
The course will run for 7 weeks, from Wednesday March 31 to May 12th. (Afternoon and evening times are available.)
The course sessions are available in person (room for up to 8 people) or via Zoom, and the two methods can be combined.
Please register your interest by March 26th:

Transition Wolfville Area invites YOU to private screening of The Need to Grow!
4 pm on March 13th at the Al Whittle Theatre, Wolfville.
(If there is enough interest, we’ll do a second screening at 7pm)
“Emotional, scientific, compassionate, inspiring, heart-wrenching—The Need To GROW is all of that. No human being on this planet should miss this film.”-SOVAS, Society of Voice Arts and Sciences
Cost: We are not selling tickets or charging admission but do obviously need to cover the cost of the theatre rental ($170 with tax). This screening is a Fundraiser. Any additional money collected will go towards renewing our website and spring projects.
Post-Screening Discussion: We have invited a few local farmers to respond to the film in order to begin a post-film conversation and initial brainstorming about how we might collectively act in response to what we’ve learned. Let us know if you or someone you know might like to join this panel of respondents. We are of course counting on comments from the audience! (More details about Gardening, Great Garlic, and backyard chickens workshops on the last two weekends in March to follow soon).
In order to be sure we have enough interest to proceed with this screening, we need to pre-register attendance by March 10th.
Physical Distancing is still required in the theatre. To comply with Covid protocols we’ll need to know if you are coming solo or in a group of two or more as this will affect seating capacity. You are welcome to invite along friends and family.
Please register here if you plan to attend:
The Need to Grow @ Al Whittle: March 13th, 4pm
We’ll be in touch again if we open a second screening.
With an estimated 60 years of farmable soil left on Earth, The Need To Grow offers an intimate look into the hearts of activists and innovators in the food movement - an 8 year old girl challenges the ethics of a beloved organization - a renegade farmer struggles to keep his land as he revolutionizes resource efficient agriculture - and an accomplished visionary inventor faces catastrophe in the midst of developing a game-changing soil regeneration technology.
The Need To GROW delivers alarming evidence on the importance of healthy soil - revealing not only the potential of localized food production working with nature, but our opportunity as individuals to help regenerate our planet’s dying soils and participate in the restoration of the Earth. ...

Climate Circles Reunion Saturday August 1 @3-5pm Willow Park Wolfville
Come join us for a relaxed conversation and catch up on all the news! Climate Circles met on Zoom for awhile before it dwindled to the Transition group, which has completed its revitalizing of Transition Wolfville Area. Transition Wolfville Area has been meeting in a small group and working on some projects and we want to share our ideas with you. We've also heard of other groups working away in their own way too. Fantastic! The Climate Circle was such an amazing gathering of people wanting change and we haven't stopped- lets connect again and keep the momentum happening!
There will be social time, time to share updates, and if desired, we can break into conversation groups as we used to do.
We will be following social distancing.
a chair and/or a blanket (these are great tools to help distance, so please do bring them)
a mask in case you can't distance
snacks just for your family group/bubble who come with you. Sadly, no food sharing this time around...
We would love to see you there! ... See MoreSee Less
