How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
Attending meetings of mulling group now headed toward raising awareness stage.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?

How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement? What can YOU teach us? What can your GROUP teach us?
I am not sure yet.
Currently, I am a student in Earth Literacy, a sustainability and ecological citizenship program in an interdisciplinary framework.
Previously I was an addictions counselor and so have some understanding of the addiction/recovery process and can see how it is helpful to use that as a model for our withdrawal from oil based culture.
Your Favorite Books/Websites/Blogs/RSS Feeds for Information about the Transition Movement

Staying in Place, by Russell Scott Sanders. A book about being grounded be place. I can't do it justice w/ my descrip. His writing can make me smile and cry. It goes right to my heart and soul.
