Campfire Conversation: Is it better to eat meat consciously, or not at all?

Want to join the campfire conversation?

After all your comments and a rescheduled session, four vegan protestors arrived uninvited and disrupted our infamous rabbit class. It didn’t get ugly but it was unpleasant and upsetting, to say the least. We tried quietly carrying on with what we were doing, but after relentless pressure, we gave up and stopped the class.

It was a shame and raises lots of questions, including how to combine passion with respect for people with contrary views, but rather than try and run the class again, it’s got me thinking about doing something different.

I’ve come up with the idea of a facilitated and mindful discussion around a fire, on the subject of “is it better to eat meat consciously, or not at all?” We’ll be inviting the people who came to the class, along with some (different) vegans, speakers and guests, to connect people and try and find a way forward.

We’re calling it Campfire Collaborations.

We don’t have a date yet, but places are limited so if you’re interested and would like to join the conversation, register your interest here.
