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…See More

Certainly, we had no inkling of…See More

WINTER SOLSTICE: WORKING AND WAITING IN HUMANITY'S BACK WARD, By Carolyn Baker

O dark dark dark. They all go into the dark.The vacant interstellar spaces......I said to my soul, be still, and wait without hopeFor hope would be hope for the wrong thing; wait without loveFor love would be love of the wrong thing; there is yet faithBut the faith and the love and the hope are all in the waiting.Wait without thought, for you are not ready for thought:So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing.East Coker from “The Four Quartets”, by T.S.

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."
