The Great Turning
A part of our Changing the Dream Series.
Sunday, October 15th from Noon - 2pm.

We live in an extraordinary moment on Earth. The Information Age and our technological advances have propelled us beyond anything our ancestors could have imagined. However, we are also awash in uncertainty in all facets of our lives as we are faced with the possibility that this current trajectory is not sustainable.
Based on the work of Joanna Macy, this interactive workshop will explore the three main stories of our time: Business as Usual, The Great Unraveling, and The Great Turning. We will discuss the ways in which our Industrial Growth Society is showing signs of instability and then identify ways in which we can be active participants in the Great Turning, as we move towards a Life Sustaining Society.
