    Charles Eisenstein: Crafting A New Narrative

    And your chance to be part of it
    by Adam Taggart

    Monday, June 1, 2015, 3:54 PM


    Much has been written here at PeakProsperity.com of late about the need for society to adopt a new narrative to live by. One deeply-ingrained with sustainability and stewardship — else our current fixation with consumption and exploitation of nature's finite resources will meet a very predictable and unpleasant end.

    So, for those that agree a new operating story is needed: Where do we start?

    This week, author Charles Eisenstein joins Chris and Becca to discuss their upcoming participation in The New Story festival, a gathering specifically focused on sparking momentum behind this important movement. More details on the event, which takes place in Bethany CT on June 12-13th, can be found here.

    by Chris Martenson

    Friday, May 15, 2015, 11:50 PM


    In the recent post on the need for a new set of founding documents and the burning need for a new narrative, it was suggested that I talk with Charles Eisenstein again because he’s one of the great thought leaders in this area.

    Well, I can do one better than that. I was recently offered the chance, along with Becca, to join in a whole day of new story development with Charles.

    Becca Martenson: Building Community

    How to increase the value of the relationships in your life
    by Adam Taggart

    Sunday, May 10, 2015, 7:17 PM


    Building community takes time and real effort. Especially in today's society, where many of the old social norms that fostered community during our grandparents age have been severed by suburban fences, the rat-race workstyle, and the false sense of belonging offered by television and the Internet.

    So how exactly does one do it?

    Dealing With a Reluctant Partner

    by Becca Martenson

    Friday, December 17, 2010, 4:13 PM

    Is your partner not “on board” with the ideas in The Crash Course?  Here are the do’s and don’ts of speaking with your reluctant partner.

    In early 2002, the stock market was tanking and Chris watched our savings drop along with it.  Ignoring the platitudes of our financial advisor to “wait it out because the stock market always goes back up,” he began an intensely focused (dare I say obsessive?) study of the economy.  What he learned made him both angry and afraid. He ranted about the state of debt levels, the fragility of fiat currencies, and the inequities of the banking system – and I barely listened:  “Uh huh.  Really?  Gosh, that’s too bad.  Can you pass me a diaper, please?”

    The movie “The Matrix” had just come out, providing perfect metaphors that made him sound pretty darn crazy to me:  He talked about having taken the red pill, and that he didn’t want to be a battery for the machine anymore.  I figured this was some kind of mid-life crisis in the works.  It was an emotional squall; I just had to wait it out, and Chris would be back to his usual self in a few months.  But the squall didn’t pass – instead, it picked up energy and became a real storm.  The harder the storm raged, the more I shut down to what Chris was trying to tell me.  He was growing increasingly distrustful of the system and fearful about the impact on his family, but I couldn’t open up and listen to what he was saying at all.  No one else I knew was talking about this stuff.  What was the matter with my husband?
