“We have to look after our inner landscape,
as well as our outer landscape.”
Satish Kumar, Editor of Resurgence and Ecologist Magazine.

“We’ve created a culture which is very focused on the outer….All of us have a story about our culture, about civilization, about who we are as people …. that we’re very attached to. That whole story in terms of material wellbeing is … in the process of change.”
Sophy Banks, Co-founder of Transition Training.
