“Voluntary Simplicity” Discussion Group begins April 3 — join us!

Sustainable Ballard’s Voluntary Simplicity discussion group starts next week.

Northwest Earth Institute discussion course books give people a framework to talk about their relationship with the planet and to share in discovering new ways to live, work, create and consume.  Their discussion courses have been used in the workplace, on college campuses, in centers of faith, and in the community. The courses are designed to help break big issues into bite-sized pieces. And they help create a personal network of shared stories and support that makes it easy to take action.

The new course book A Different Way: Living Simply in a Complex World helps participants examine how modern society can interfere with caring for the planet. Together, we will explore how consumption patterns have an impact on us and our relationships, as well as the environment. We will discover ways to slow down and live simply.

We’ll be meeting to discuss it on the following six Mondays at 7:30 or 8 pm:
April 3, April 17, May 1, May 22, June 5, June 19
