2012. The Gift Transition: a workshop with Charles Eisenstein
On October 30, join Charles Eisenstein for an interactive exploration of the future of money, gift, and transition.
Money today is the very antithesis of the sacred. Our modern money system has contributed to alienation, competition and scarcity, helped to destroy community, and necessitated endless growth.
But today, that system is falling apart.
This presents us with an opportunity to transition to a more connected, ecological, and sustainable world. The workshop on Gift Transition is also your occasion to discover "La Free Prix du Squat 123", to join us for a do-it-yourself dinner, explore our biobar...
