Leadership For Times Like These: Exploring Regenerative Life and Livelihood

Training our inner self is like forging lead – Loy Ching-Yuen – The Book of the Heart

Facilitated by  – Rosie Burrows
Supported by Robbie Breadon

Saturday 23rd May 2020

10.00 for 10.30am  –  4.30pm

In a time of climate and justice crisis/breakdown, who do we choose to be?
Exploring our deepest intentions or hearts desires and life contexts, we can design conditions for moving with individual and collective loss/trauma, and anchoring in our creative resources.

This workshop includes:

  • Celebration of strengths and connection and negotiation with our vulnerable, wild edges, if we choose;
  • Live consultations and nature practices;
  • Exploring a regenerative economic model map, alongside psychological and physiological map with activities for body well being / holding steady  / integrity;
  • What, if anything gets in the way of our hearts desire/our gift to bring as a leader?;
  • How are we building effective holistic support for times like these?


Robbie Breadon – Eco-therapist and Director of Common Ground will guide Nature Practices that are supportive of Rosie’s workshop content.

Directions for driving to the farm

The farm is on the road between Fivemiletown (FMT) and Rosslea /Roslea – in fact it is only 3 miles from FMT.

If you are coming from N. Ireland then the best bet is to make your way to FMT – in the town there is a one way system – the turn off for Cooneen is on the main street turning left – follow the road for 3 miles until you come to Cooneen/Coonian – you will see the big spire of the the Parish Church on your left. We are just before that and you need to turn right to go up our lane. If you came to the bridge marked Colebrooke River you have just passed us so turn around and we are now on the left.

If you are coming from south of the border then you have options. Coming from the west then head to Enniskillen and take the A4 towards Belfast and FMT is on that road. If from the east or Dublin then head for Monaghan then to Aughnacloy and connect with the A4 at Augher and head west to FMT. Some of you might come across the high ground from Monaghan or Clones – follow signs for Cooneen or FMT which will take you to Cooneen cross from where you will see the church – i.e. from Cooneen Cross you head for FMT cross the Colebrooke River and we are the first lane on your left.

The postcode is BT75 0NH but satnavs seem to get confused due to recent postcode changes – the church has been allocated BT75 0NJ on Google and you can see the church clearly marked on Google maps.
