Latest Activity: Apr 13, 2012
We are pleased to present an evening with author Carolyn Baker on Skype from Boulder, Colorado, speaking on her latest book "Navigating the Coming Chaos, a handbook for inner transition", which is described below. She will guide us in some small group work. There will be time for questions at the end.
This time of great uncertainty presents humankind with unprecedented and daunting challenges in the area of energy, environment, and economics.
Just as "The Transition Handbook" of 2008 provided specific strategies for addressing these changes logistically, "Navigating The Coming Chaos" provides a toolkit of emotional and spiritual preparation for an uncertain future. It offers us an opportunity to step across an evolutionary threshold in order to become a new kind of human being living in conscious self-awareness of our intimate connection with all life in the universe.
Deepening the work begun in Sacred Demise, Carolyn Baker has assembled - and life tested - a rich compendium of tools for the inner warrior preparing to meet the crumbling of our civilization with inner strength, purpose, and presence.
In times like these that try our souls, embarking on the deep self-reflection invited by this book will be as essential as any practical preparations for our present time.
Our hope is that this event will result in the formation of smaller groups who will support each other as we go about strengthening our emotional resilience.
Come at 7 pm for tea and mingling. If you can, bring a treat to share.
Suggested donation: $5 - $10.
Copies of the book will be for sale.
Sponsored by our Inner Transition group, with the Vic West Community Association and Programs in Earth Literacies.
