Through this full six-session group discussion course beginning on October 19, we endeavor to quite literally discover sanity and peace in the midst of a storm. Northwest Earth Institute subtitles this couse "Living Simply in a Complex World". Please join us to:

  • Explore the many personal and global issues we face that a simple lifestyle can help to address.

  • Determine which of your values leads you to an interest in simple living, and how simple living will help you live more in line with your values.

  • Commit to action to create bigger impact in our world.

Each session is based on a set of readings from the NWEI course book, with rotating facilitation by course participants -- ourselves. The course is hosted by Michigan Friends Center and offered in partnership with Transition Town Chelsea.

Your one registration covers all six sessions, or as many sessions as you are able to attend. Also included, yours to keep, is the beautiful Northwest Earth Institute course book full of thought provoking essays and articles by social commentators and people who truly "walk the walk" of living in simplicity.
