Living Two Lives

And what to do about it
Friday, July 12, 2013, 3:12 PM

You know that something is very wrong.

Even if you ascribe to the recovery meme and ingest the current narrative that the economy is about to take off and that stocks and houses will once again make us all rich, you know deep down that the story of perpetual exponential growth has an ending.

Maybe not immediately, but someday, certainly, the doctrine of endless growth will have to end. And you know that in all likelihood it won't end on human terms, in a manner of our careful choosing, but on some other terms set by exhausted ecosystems and depleted resources interacting with our highly complex economic and financial systems. » Read more

Join Us at Kripalu Next Weekend

This will be our last weekend seminar in 2012
Friday, June 22, 2012, 5:11 PM

I would like you to join me, Becca, Adam, and other Crash Course-aware individuals for a powerful, calming, transformative, and intimate weekend session at the Kripalu Center June 29-July 1. This is the only remaining seminar on the 2012 calendar, so be sure to register or be prepared to wait until at least 2013 for the next one.

So much is transpiring so rapidly these days (welcome to the steep portion of the exponential curve) that anything and everything we can do to prepare ourselves mentally, financially, physically, and emotionally is the best use of our time.

You should especially come if you want to get to meet other like-minded people in a relaxing setting, be invigorated, and come away with a clear sense of what to do next.

We will address:

  • Talking to (and living with) reluctant partners (friends, colleagues, and neighbors, too)
  • Emotional barriers to action
  • How our beliefs can be limiting or enhancing, and knowing which we are holding
  • The six stages of awareness
  • A full tour of the precise steps that Chris and Becca have taken at their homestead
  • Hope & Fears - an open discussion among friends about the future
  • Creating community
  • Developing your own resilience steps and checklists
  • Financial steps you should take - we'll have one of our endorsed financial advisors on hand to address your questions

Join Us at Kripalu June 29-July 1

Is it time for you to kick your personal resiliency into a h

Fresh off of a very successful seminar weekend at Rowe in March, we're gearing up for the last seminar we plan to offer this year.

It will be at the beautiful Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health, located in the Berkshires of western Massachusetts, at a wonderful time of year:

We're very excited to have been invited to conduct our workshop at such a well-regarded and respected destination as Kripalu, where internationally-known speakers like Deepak Chopra present regularly.

This June, we'll be building on the new material we debuted at Rowe, which addresses how we are much farther along the "Three E" timeline than when the Crash Course videos were created four years ago. » Read more
