Profile Information

How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
In 2005 I started the Let's Live Local Program here in our mountain community. Serendipitously our process has been remarkably parallel to the 12 Step Transition Initiatives process. After two years of awareness-raising viewings, we held our launch as a community energy fair, participated in the Community Strategic Planning Process, and have created and run a wood pellet and organic food coop, along with other programs currently in development.
I became aware of the Transition movement online, read Rob's book, and attended a day-long TT workshop in Los Angeles. This past December 2008 I completed the training to become one of 20 US Transition Initiatives Trainers. Our local group has applied to become an official Transition Initiative.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I and our local group identify with the Transition movement because it’s up-beat, action-oriented, inclusive, and an organic approach for responding to the climate, and energy challenges we face at the individual, community, national, and global levels. I also appreciate the way TT communities across the world are sharing ideas and experiences that we can all draw from when they fit our localized needs.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement? What can YOU teach us? What can your GROUP teach us?
I will gladly share my ideas, experiences, expertise, and energy with others and do all I can to promote the movement through speaking, online interaction, and the media. I am an LCSW and PhD Ecopsychologist. My background includes community development, group process, training, psychotherapy, post-corporate career counseling, writing, speaking, and media. My partner and husband Paul and I have written 17 books on career and lifestyle change. We pioneered the field of working from home, written columns and hosted our own radio and television shows on that and other life-change-related topics for the past 20 years.

HELLO, SARAH!!!

HOW IS TRANSITION WORK GOING IN YOUR AREA? I HAVE BEEN PUSHING SO HARD, I FORGET SUBJECT LINES, AND MINOR DETAILS LIKE WHEN AND WHERE MEETINGS ARE- AND EMAIL ADDRESSES LOL!!!
MINE IS;
dmnds2001@yahoo.com
WHAT I THINK WOULD BE GREAT IS SOME KIND OF INTERACTIVE WEBSITE WHERE WE COULD ALL POST GARDENING AND OTHER FOOD PRODUCTION INFO, AS WELL AS ALTERNATIVE INFO IN THE AREAS OF HEALTH, CURRENCY, SHELTER, ETC, AND BE ABLE TO POST INFORMATION AWARENESS IN THE FORM OF VIDEOS, POWERPOINT SHOWS, E-BOOKS, ETC.
IS HEALTH YOUR MAIN OR ONLY AREA OF INTEREST? I KEEP HOPING TO FIND MORE "INFORMATION JUNKIES," POLYMATHS IN EACH GROUP,OR AREA.
ONE OF OUR MAIN AREAS OF FOCUS HERE IS INFORMATION DISTRIBUTION, OR AWARENESS RAISING.
ANYWAY, LET ME KNOW HOW I CAN HELP.

Sarah,

It will be nice to talk with you about our work. As you say there aren't many clinicians who have the interest, background, and skill to address issues that are personal, interpersonal, social, and ecological. There are even fewer with a PhD, LCSW combo.

I'll look forward to reading your new book and would be happy to share more information about my upcoming book if you'd like to e-mail me at Jed@Menalive.com

Sarah,

Sounds like we have a good deal in common. I have a PhD in International Health and an LCSW. I've been working on health issues and gender medicine for the last 40 plus years.

Here in Willits, California we have been doing work to localize our economy for the last 4 years.

I've written 7 books and am working on one I'm calling Post-Petroleum Stress Disorder: Healing Ourselves, Saving Humanity.

Would enjoy sharing with you if you're interested.

We've also been involved in our local sustainability group for a few years now. I was not commenting on any particular group, as I was commenting on some of the writings of Rob Hopkins. I believe that he has been a bit premature in his excessive in his praise of TT. A lot of great groups ( like yours) have been subsumed into TT. I have a few concerns, but I am sufficiently open and curious to poke around and learn.

Nice to find you here Sarah!
I don't know if you remember me, my partner is Dr. Kathy Mcmahon. You may remember I am a huge fan of your work. I have some reservations about TT, because the stakes are so great, but I am greatly impressed by the energy and networking that I see on this site.
