Purpose Geek Book Club
Purpose Guides Institutes proudly announces our first Book Club with Joanna Macy! First session is May 10th at 5:30 - 6:30pm PST.
Joanna Macy received her PhD (1978) from the State University of New York, Syracuse. She is a visionary activist and scholar of Buddhism, general systems theory, and deep ecology. Weaving these threads together, she has created both a groundbreaking theoretical framework for a new paradigm of personal and social change, and a powerful workshop methodology for its application. Her wide-ranging work addresses psychological and spiritual issues of the nuclear age, the cultivation of ecological awareness, and the fruitful resonance between Buddhist thought and contemporary science.
We chose this book because we understand that once we start living our soul's purpose, as we turn towards what the Earth and Humanity calls and cries for, it can be difficult to think about it. Climate change, the depletion of oil, economic upheaval, and mass extinction together create a planetary emergency of overwhelming proportions. Active Hope shows us how to strengthen our capacity to face this crisis so that we can respond with unexpected resilience and creative power - our soul's purpose. Joanna guides us through a transformational process informed by mythic journeys, modern psychology, spirituality, and holistic science.
You do not have complete the book by this first session. The first session is free. The fee for the two additional 2hr gatherings is $85 if you register and pay now. If you chose to wait to register for the additional classes until after May 10th, then the fee increases to $95. The meeting and class times for the two additional gatherings are:
Session 1 - Thurs June 7th, 5:30pm - 7:30pm PST
Session 2 - Thurs June 14, 5:30pm-7:30pm PST
