The More Beautiful World our Hearts Know is Possible, a discussion with Charles Eisenstein on Wednesday November 19 at 7:30pm at the Carlisle Friends Meetinghouse.
We live at a special historical moment, to use Joanna Macy's words, a Great Turning. But what is, exactly, this turning of the age whose imminence we feel? How does it practically translate into political, technological, and social change? How can we participate in it in the face of the grave situation our planet faces? Join Charles Eisenstein for a challenging and inspiring exploration of the dynamics of the present transition.
The public is welcome.
Charles is an inspirational speaker and writer, a kind of Old Testament prophet who has a diagnosis of what is wrong in our culture and society but who offers hope that we can repent and change our culture and society for the better.
He is almost local, living in Harrisburg. Although not a Quaker, he is a kindred spirit.
He has written several related books about what he sees are the crucial issues for the world today and the way out of our morass. His books include:
The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know Is Possible (Sacred Activism)
The Ascent of Humanity: Civilization and the Human Sense of Self
Sacred Economics: Money, Gift, and Society in the Age of Transition
