MIMIC THIS! When you get invited to events 3000 miles away (or 20 of them just across town), use COPY & PASTE with the really interesting events to seed your own community's plans for similar events. Why start from scratch.... Beg, borrow and mimic! More....
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!!!
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.
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
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.
