An Evening with Charles Eisenstein
"The Most Beautiful World We All Know is Possible"
Wednesday, August 10, 2016
Doors open at 6:30 PM
First Unitarian Church
SW 12th and Main St.
Admission: sliding scale: $5-20; no one turned away for lack of funds.
In a talk titled after his book, "The More Beautiful World our Hearts Know is Possible" Charles will explore the deep mythology of our culture changing, from a Story of Separation to a Story of Interbeing. This new (and ancient) mythology is what unites the yogi and the activist, alternative healing and permaculture, holistic education and participatory citizenship, racial justice and nonviolent communication. They are the diverse faces of the same movement, the same transition in story. This event will gather them together in a coherent field. Charles will frame the dynamics of transition -- crisis, breakdown, the space between, and emergence. He will elucidate a foundational meta-strategy for serving change, and draw upon the experiences of those gathered to illuminate next steps for Portland and Cascadia in this time of transition.
