Transition for many people has been primarily a platform for shifting out of the fossil fuel economy. Even though more people are now talking about "inner resilience," what does that mean? Is this a purely secular movement? In this presentation, we will discuss the nature of spirituality, self-care, and how we maintain our inner health that feeds our action in the world and make us more effective agents for change. We will also look at ways we can share our spirituality and explore what Transition's role should or could be in terms of spiritual support.
