A conscious life
From winter 2017-summer 2018/19 I (Sharon) stepped back from eight years of community organising to reflect on and consolidate my learning. In 2019 I'll be returning to a more active life, increasing the frequency of my community workshops, doing some additional contract work for community organisations, serving as a board member for the Palmerston North City Environmental Trust, and stepping up my behind-the-scenes volunteering for a couple other environmental organisations. I am also working with a small team to start a consciousness-raising campaign about the value of natural darkness.
Nonetheless, I will be continuing my public writing. My main projects are magazine articles to support sustainable living, revising a young adult novel based in the Manawatu River catchment, and eco-literary essays about nature, spirituality, and community.
