Regenerative

MASTERCLASS

Join us for a series of interdisciplinary
conversations about some of the most important
questions of our time.

Growing a trauma-informed culture is a fundamental value in today’s world. By slowing down and opening our nervous systems to reflection and integration, we allow the wounds of the past to come to the surface and be seen and healed. The Pocket Project is offering a series of Regenerative Masterclasses – specialized expert-led workshops on a range of topics and evidence-based approaches. These conversations provide sanctuaries for shared healing experiences and empower you with the necessary skills and tools for global collective restoration. Let’s restore, renew, and revitalize our lives, organizations and communities together!

Join us for our next Masterclass: ‘BOOK LAUNCH - CLIMATE, PSYCHOLOGY & CHANGE’ on June 18, 2024 with Thomas Hübl, Bayo Akomolafe, Nora Batesone, Francis Weller, Steffi Bednarek, Caroline Lucas, James Vaccaro, Deepa Mirchandani & Kosha Joubert.

In an effort to step out of the familiar echo chambers, we bring the ideas of the book into contact and relationship with an interdisciplinary group of professionals to cross-fertilise each other.

BOOK LAUNCH - CLIMATE, PSYCHOLOGY & CHANGE

We can no longer think of therapeutic practice as bringing clients back to baseline “normal”when our normal is profoundly unwell. Instead, we need to evolve therapy.
Within Western paradigms, psychotherapy is seen as a way to bring a distressed person ack within the realm of the familiar. But our collective “familiar” is fragile, built on dominant norms that accelerate global destruction, extract from our communities, and erode our futures.
Explore topics like:
Climate, Psychology, and Change makes the case for a regenerative disturbance to the familiar thinking of what it means to be human and addresses how our perceptions may need to be widened in order to be able to hold the texture of our complex, paradoxical and interconnected lives in our hearts and minds. Everything is in conversation and relationship.

Climate change is a systemic problem with geophysical, technological, economic, political, and ethical dimensions, among others. The in-depth exploration of our climate crisis from a mental-health perspective, offered in this book, will be an important contribution to an urgently needed dialogue.

The book launch is hosted by Kosha Joubert, Pocket Project CEO. In addition to the above-mentioned topics, the event will:
