Planning

  - we will be offering, in various parts of LA, the Drawdown Initiative, a series of workshops that supports individuals and communities in finding their unique contribution to reversing global warming. The workshops derive from Paul Hawken's Project Drawdown.  Come learn about it, and if you like, volunteer.

We will be eating potluck-style, so if you are able, please bring a dish to share!

 

 

Something to think about:

"If someone from the community you are talking with had stolen a television we would say, “One of us has stolen a television.” Yet the Tojolabales would say, “one of us we have stolen a television.” This subtlety changes everything. In the first linguistic construction you would proceed to punish and lock the person up. In the second, you would gather the community together to ask ourselves what is out of balance in the community that has caused us to steal a television. This is interbeing. This is all about how we relate, not just to our partners and colleagues, but how we relate to and can recognize the we in… you name it: the politicians who we think are not doing enough or doing exactly the opposite of what is needed."
