I had a chance on the weekend to speak at a conference for cross cultural workers at Victor Harbor in South Australia. It was a great time to catch up with old friends and share a passion of mine with some busy people.
I know that the majority of people involved with social justice work are busy – the work is great and the workers are few. I know that contemplation, meditation and stillness are very helpful tools to help people stay on an even keel.
I stand in admiration for those of us that can maintain a daily regime of this stuff – I wish I was like that but sadly I’m not. So these tools I offer to those who want to try. Not every technique will work for everyone but I hope there is something in there for all of us.
