Author & Speaker Charles Eisenstein at East Haddam Grange

Author and speaker Charles Eisenstein will be talking on March 6, 2011 at the East Haddam Grange from 2 - 4 pm

The Earth Charter Community of the Lower Valley (ECCoLoV) is pleased to host noted author and speaker Charles Eisenstein on March 6, 2011 at the East Haddam Grange, 488 Town Street, East Haddam, Connecticut from 2 to 4 PM. Mr. Eisenstein will talk about the changes taking place in our society right now – from where they spring, and what their implications are.

Current economic uncertainty isn’t just a bump in the road, but a fundamental shift. Our ‘story’ is changing – the invisible myths and ideologies that form our world – propelling humanity into a new relationship to earth and money. Underneath is a deeper shift: an awakening to a different way of being.

Charles Eisenstein’s book, The Ascent of Humanity, is a radical exploration of the history and future of civilization from a unique perspective: the human sense of self. Like many philosophers, Eisenstein traces all of the converging crises of our age to a common source, which he calls Separation. It is the ideology of the discrete and separate self that has generated these crises; therefore, he argues, nothing less than a “revolution in human beingness” will be sufficient to transform our relationship to each other and the planet. Even in this dark hour, he says, a more beautiful world is possible – – but not through the extension of millennia-old methods of management and control.

This talk is free and open to all. Donations are encouraged. Refreshments will be available.

The Earth Charter Community of the Lower Valley, Inc. is a non-profit, 501c3 organized around the principles of the Earth Charter, a declaration of inter-dependence developed through a world-wide dialog initiated by the United Nations.
