UNPREPARED AND UNPLUGGED: JOE STACK AND LIKELY COMING ATTRACTIONS, By Carolyn Baker

Thomas Homer-Dixon, author of The Upside of Down



Most of us have heard it by now-software engineer torches his own house then crashes his private plane into an IRS office in Austin, Texas on February 18, 2010. Most… Continue

"THE BOOK OF ELI" AND THE SACRED JOURNEY OF COLLAPSE, By Carolyn Baker

I've always been fascinated by questions of faith and spirituality and the idea is that there is something greater than yourselves. The idea of

the movie was the belief in something greater than yourself, the most

DIALOGING TRANSITION HEART AND SOUL

As the Transition movement in the United States approaches its third year, and as it celebrates a growth spurt surpassing most social movements in recent history, individuals engaged in Transition are increasingly experiencing the more subtle nuances of its mission. Many are discovering that while awareness-raising and reskilling are deeply inspiring and rewarding, something is missing. That something is connected with the more profound reasons for embracing Transition in the first place—the… Continue

For more info about Ms. Bakers evening talk and all day workshop, this is what she has written:
____________________________
EVENING TALK 
Carolyn Baker, Ph.D, author of Sacred Demise: Walking The Spiritual Path of Industrial Civilization's Collapse, will use drumming and storytelling to introduce her book and engage participants in dialog regarding the current unprecedented transitions in our world and the opportunities they offer for personal and community transformation.

SATURDAY WORKSHOP TITLE

"From Transition To Transformation: Collapse As Spiritual Practice"

In this workshop, Carolyn Baker, Ph.D., author of Sacred Demise: Walking The Spiritual Path of Industrial Civilization's Collapse will facilitate participants in experiencing the healing power of challenging transitions. Utilizing structured exercises, journaling, dialog, and intimacy with the natural world we will open our hearts and minds to the transformational journey which the decline of the modern world invites us to embrace. Participants should bring a journal and dress comfortably for walking and wandering in nature.

Carolyn Baker, Ph.D., is the author of Sacred Demise: Walking The Spiritual Path of Industrial Civilization's Collapse. She is also an adjunct professor of history and psychology and a former psychotherapist. She also manages Speaking Truth to Power at www.carolynbaker.net and lives and works in Vermont.


Carolyn Baker can be reached at carolyn@carolynbaker.net to discuss possibilities for your community to engage with this brilliant and wise woman. This is what Michael Brownlee, Co-founder, Transition Boulder County, has written for the back cover:

     "We face an awesome internal transition that will take us into very unfamiliar territory and will call upon our deeper resources. Carolyn Baker's Sacred Demise is a courageous, wise, and compassionate guide for us all through this inner journey."
