Seminar One

Climate change: Finding hope through action

Guest presenter: Taya Stocks, Campaigns Coordinator for the Australian Youth Climate Coalition 

Friday 23 February 2024
5.45–7:15 pm
Optional dinner follows
Lifeflow Studio

It’s easy to see news about climate change and feel hopeless and defeated, but there’s so much we can do together to stop the worst of it, and make our lives and communities healthier and more connected in the process. 

Taya will begin with a basic refresher of climate science and modelling, then focus on what solutions we have, and how we can all take action in our own way. She will also discuss the differences between individual and collective action, and why taking action together is one of the most powerful tools we have to solve climate change.

Taya Stocks works as Campaigns Coordinator for the Australian Youth Climate Coalition where her role includes policy research, lobbying, writing campaign strategy, and working with young volunteers across the country. Previously she has worked on election campaigns, fights to stop oil drilling in the Bight and fracking in the NT and helped establish school strike 4 climate in Adelaide.

Bookings close Wednesday 21 February (for catering purposes) – please see booking link below.

Seminar Two

Slaying Existential Dragons: Exploring the intersection of trauma, therapy and meditation

Presenter: Fiona Meade 

Friday 31 May
5.45–7.15 
Optional dinner follows
Lifeflow Studio

Fiona Meade is a counselling therapist, trainer and group worker in private practice based in the Murraylands, SA. She has a particular interest in working with trauma, violence and abuse as both a therapist and health professional. She has also developed a strong interest in worker wellbeing and in particular, the impacts of vicarious trauma, compassion fatigue and burnout on workers and organisations. 

Since joining Lifeflow, Fiona has developed a deep curiosity about the intersection of trauma, therapy and meditation teaching and wonders often, how different and similar they are.

This member session gives rein to her curiosity and will canvass some common definitions of trauma, explore ways of working with trauma that have been helpful (and some, not so helpful) over a few decades of practice and probes the surprising similarities between trauma therapy and meditation teaching.

Feel calmer, less overwhelmed when very busy. More aware of the ‘now’.

We received great feedback from the sessions. Even the most hardened anti-meditators were won over.
