Healing an Anxious Society

“We used to live in a society. Now we live in an economy”
(Hugh Mackay, AO)

Two million Australians were suffering from anxiety last year alone, and one in four of us will experience an anxiety disorder at some time in our life. Why? Has society’s relentless pursuit for individualism, wealth and power contributed to this situation? Are we neglecting the importance of social cohesion in our local neighbourhoods and communities? Have we forgotten that compassion – a concern for others – is the great antidote to anxiety?   

You are invited to join us for a one day journey into the heart of anxiety.  Share your experiences and insights with an innovative, growing community.  Brainstorm individual, local and global solutions to heal an anxious society and create a better future for us all.1.0
