Terry Edlin commented on Carolyn Baker's blog post 'PEAK RELATIONSHIPS: The End of Suburbia Up Close and Personal, By Carolyn Baker'
"The sense of doom and gloom is unrelenting. Now I have a glimpse of how a polar bear must feel: my world is too hot, too humid, too crowded, Chicagoans struggling to hang on my a thread are evident everywhere. There is no place to go for relief."

PEAK RELATIONSHIPS: The End of Suburbia Up Close and Personal, By Carolyn Baker

Profile Information

How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
I'm working closely with Transition Colorado and Transition Louisville.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I have been researching and preparing for the collapse of civilization for several years. I love that the Transition movement contains a component dealing with the Psychology of Change. I live in Vermont where great things are happening with Transition Towns.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement? What can YOU teach us? What can your GROUP teach us?
With my website and with my book Sacred Demise: Walking The Spiritual Path of Civilization's Collapse. Its foreword is written by Sarah Edwards, and it has an endorsement on the back cover by Michael Brownlee. I am also an adjunct professor of history and psychology and in that venue have the opportunity to awaken students to transition.

powerful force in the universe, and that's a force that can be turned

either for good or evil depending on what we do with…

Earth Blog's Keith Farnish is also the author of Time's Up: An Uncivilized Solution To A Global Crisis

A few months ago, I struck up an online friendship with the acclaimed author and academic Carolyn Baker.
