The Inner Dimension of Transition
The Spirit of the Movement Today
What is the transition movement? Nothing tells it better than the video above: Transition 2.0. People are doing extraordinary things in a spirit of hope and optimism, growing vegetables in unexpected places, and knowing that they are part of a global movement of creative localization. There's a sense of urgency, but also a lot of fun; and the arts play a critical role.
"In Transition 2.0 is an inspirational immersion in the Transition movement, gathering stories from around the world of ordinary people doing extraordinary things. You'll hear about communities printing their own money, growing food, localising their economies and setting up community power stations. It's an idea that has gone viral, a social experiment that is about responding to uncertain times with solutions and optimism. In a world of increasing uncertainty, here is a story of hope, ingenuity and the power of growing vegetables in unexpected places."
A Transition in Consciousness, Too
If our vision is that we have people who are thriving, where people feel included, where people have a sense of well-being, we need the basics of our living systems working for that, but actually the biggest journey, the biggest transition that we need to make, is on the inside. To understand how to create well-being in people. Because it's not through having masses of stuff. We need a culture that supports people into a state of well-being. We need a way of looking in to "how does a human being work on the inside." The way that we've made the world, that has its focus on competition, getting as much as you can, and keeping up with people that have more than you, and seeing the person who is different as a threat, that comes out of a state of consciousness, something that's inside us.
