A Different Way: Living Simply in a Complex World
October 15 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
This is a six week, group-facilitated class based upon discussion of readings developed by the Northwest Earth Institute. The first session on October 15 will be followed by meetings on successive Mondays through November 19.
The concept of “living simply so that others may simply live” has been around for hundreds of years. People choose to live simply for many reasons and as our world changes, the motivations for and benefits of living a simple life also evolve. Today, we choose simple living as a way to make our own paths in life, paths that allow for investing our time in the things that matter most to us, making choices that create less waste and more good, using (or not using) technology intentionally, and critically examining the messages that tell us what to believe, what to value, and who to be. This course connects our individual values and actions to the larger picture and empowers us to make real change in our lives, communities, and in the world at large.
The sessions are free but there is a charge for the book. Please arrange to purchase the book in time to read the articles in Section 1 prior to the first meeting. The cost is $30 for the paperback copy or $28 for the e-book edition. If you contact Chuck@simplyliving.org by Wednesday, Oct 5th, Simply Living will order your print copy and you will be able to save the shipping fee. You can also order directly either the print or online edition HERE. Limited to 8-12 participants. Learn more about the course HERE. Email Jake DaSilva to attend. Please register on Eventbrite.
