Usually this "international level" training in how we appreciate each others'values/needs more fully & work with them more constructively costs £300 per person. Maria Arpa however, as a friend and colleague for some years, is keen to support the initiatives of Mediaiton Support Ltf in Hastings/St Leonards, which include the introduction of a new model of timebanking. Maria gets back frm her training no money from our local economy. What Maria gets is:
1) 20 hours of my time providing social media (A blog, a facebook page, a twitterstream & videos on YouTube Channel Toothpaste007), all of which will be supporting the launch of the new Centre for Peaceful solutions charity shop.
2) Satisfaction from hearing about (or just having confidence in) the hours that you put into the community, having received this training.
I'd enjoy hearing more about the difference this training makes to you & what you do locally. I have really appreciated Alison Cooper volunteering more than 20 hours of her time at the Hasting & St Leonards Action for Happiness & Mediation Support Centre, based at Southwater Area Community Centre. Alison has been sorting out hundreds of items (books, DVDs, Camping equipment, Catering equipment, Computing equipment, tools etc) & is putting them on http://streetbank.com as a step towards the wider community having access to them. Here we have launched the first streetbank depot in the country. It will require creativity & support -maybe you can help?- to make it more fully accessible & truly useful as part of a wider community library initiative taking place in St Leonards.
GETTING MESSAGES OUT ABOUT THE DIFFERENCE WE CAN EACH MAKE & LEARNING FROM THE (SOMETIMES TOUGH) FEEDBACK WE GET FROM DARING TO DREAM & ACT ON OUR DREAMS
Please consider sharing parts of your journey in seeking a happier life for yourself and, inevitably, others. I will be filming parts of the training and asking people attending for interviews about where you are on "the dream cycle" with any of your projects:
If you say something to me on video & don't want it quoted or used in my best judgment for the benefit of others, do let me know. We can then review any video (or audio) footage together & find a way to respect the needs underlying our wishes.
TRAINING TIMES & MEALS
The start time each day is being texted to all attendees; this way I have a handy means to contact all of you.
By the time you have a text message we will have had any necessary conversation about leaving a deposit to secure your place.
