Please join our Book Club on “A Different Way: Living Simply in a Complex World.” Through shared learning, shared stories and shared action, help foster a spirit of community and inspire change.
The concept of “living simply so that others may simply live” has been around for hundreds of years. People choose to live simply for many reasons and as our world changes, the motivations for and benefits of living a simple life also evolve. Today, we choose simple living as a way to make our own paths in life, paths that allow for investing our time in the things that matter most to us, making choices that create less waste and more good, using (or not using) technology intentionally, and critically examining the messages that tell us what to believe, what to value, and who to be. “A Different Way: Living Simply in a Complex World” connects our individual values and actions to the larger picture and helps us to find power to make real change in our lives, communities, and in the world at large.
Using the book, “A Different Way: Living Simply in a Complex World,” participants read each chapter (includes brief articles, book excerpts and/or links to online content) on their own. During each session, group members take turns facilitating by leading others through discussion questions provided in the book.
