  • Description:

    Join us for a discussion about the crisis and the opportunity that we are facing individually and globally, culturally and spiritually, in the ecological environments of our material, natural and relational worlds.

    For over 30 years, Duane and Coleen have dedicated their lives to mapping cultural trends, researching scientific data, and educating people about the trajectories of our choices of attention and action.

    As we enter further into the outcomes of past decisions, they point to this time as the threshold of a great transition. As Duane writes in Choosing Earth, “Our world crisis asks us to look freshly at our mindset and ask: ‘Is there an experience of life that is so widely shared that it can draw us together in a shared journey into a thriving future?’”

    We invite you to bring your questions, curiosity, and willingness to explore possibilities of decision-making, action, and way-of-being to this important and, perhaps, life-changing conversation.

    Duane Elgin is an internationally recognized author, speaker, educator and visionary. Duane’s portfolio of futures work includes: two years on the senior staff of a Presidential Commission on the American Future; six years working as a senior social scientist with the “futures group” at SRI International. Duane is the author of five books that look into the deep future including Choosing Earth, The Living Universe, and Voluntary Simplicity. 

    Coleen LeDrew Elgin (Director, Producer, Co-writer of Facing Adversity, Choosing Earth) is a filmmaker specializing in documentaries that open hearts and minds, expand consciousness, and reveal wisdom. Her clients include Fetzer Memorial Trust, Spirit Rock Meditation Center, and Shambhala Publications.

    The Choosing Earth Conversation is facilitated by Marianne Rowe, a founding teacher of Monterey Bay Meditation Studio and licensed marriage and family therapist.
