  • Description:

    This is an 8-week course which meets THURSDAYS, JULY 8 - AUGUST 26.).

    Our planetary eco-system -- Earth -- is in crisis. Because we play a defining role in this eco-system and its present state, how we respond right now directly determines how things are going to unfold and what the outcome will be. In this course, with Duane Elgin’s most recent book as a guide, we explore the crisis and the opportunity that we have before us to change where we are headed.

    Based on a lifetime of research and a decade of community organizing by the author, Choosing Earth is an unvarnished look at the reality of our world in crisis and an invitation for us to actively shape our future rather than be passive victims of denial and delay.

    • What is happening in our relationship with Earth?
    • What choices of response are available to us?
    • What impact can our responses have?
    • What action can we take that matters?

    With the curriculum created by Duane and Coleen Elgin and the Choosing Earth Team, we engage deep inquiry, mindful discussion, experiential investigation, and simple homework activities to explore, process, and identify where we are and what we can do to cultivate lasting change, individually and globally. Each class focuses on building a container that supports sharing, reflecting, and digesting this visionary and, at times, challenging material.

    Following our 7-week journey through the book, Duane and Coleen will join us for conversation about the book and Coleen’s film Facing Adversity: Choosing Earth, Choosing Life, as well as exploration of practical and potent responsive action. Attending all classes is strongly suggested to integrate the full arc of this powerful exploration.

    5:30-7:00 PM

    This course meets online via Zoom. When you register, we’ll invite you to our online group for the course.
