Raise awareness of the inter-connectedness of three crises: energy (peak-oil), environmental (climate chaos) and financial. The purpose of this guild is educational outreach on the myriad of topics related to our local Transition movement. This outreach includes supporting existing guilds or seeding new ones. We will organize films with discussion; book study groups; or just general discussions about topics of interest.As a Transition Initiative, we do not discuss religion or politics.See More

Profile Information

What parts of our mission are you interested in (for example, growing food/food security, appropriate energy technologies, transportation, community building, etc.)?
Virtually all aspects; my "specific" training has been as a generatlist
How do you see yourself being involved with Sustainable NE Seattle? What skills, talents and passions are you willing to share?
I yearn to participate in discussions that squarely confront the causes of our cultures most vexing problems. To a large degree it does not appear that many such discussions are even on the table yet--what our culture is pretty good at is dealing with symptoms that enable us to be "more comfortable in the ditch," without much hope of getting out of the ditch. A bunch of circumstances have enabled me to learn some things that may be useful in such a pursuit.
List other affiliations/groups that you participate in with similar missions.
No current local affiliations (am new to Washington--from the San Francisco area). Am involved with (or recently have been) The Pachamama Alliance; The Windstar Foundation; Global Energy Network Institute (GENI); The Buckminster Fuller Institute; Native Power
How did you hear about us?
Through Transition Towns

Although I'm not as fully informed about Buckminster Fuller's teachings as I'd like to be, I think I can relate to what you are saying. Modern culture is very much in need of paying attention to - and educating our children in - the "New Story" - incorporating what we are learning about the ways of Nature and the universe through the sciences - but also through a deeper 'spirituality' (uh-oh, a problem word for many). We have so much knowledge now - but not enough wisdom. It seems to me that by doing the simple things - gardening, cooking, enjoying each other's company, etc. - as well as practicing such things as meditation, yoga, which tune us in to our deeper consciousness - we will begin to get 'out of the ditch' - re-energize... I know that's what helps keep me sane in this crazy world. I believe we are already 'shifting' in our culture - 'evolving', if you will - because the current constraints we are in demand it. It will happen - maybe not the way we want it to - I fear there will be some cataclysmic events - but they will bring us to our senses more, and help us get closer to our true compassionate nature! At least I certainly HOPE so! (By the way, what does IMHO mean?)

Are you currently driving a diesel vehicle? We are also (given my "blurp") looking for a home for our processor and inventory, which is almost "plug n' play" if you are a die hard tinkerer.

I'd also like to invite you to Seattle Renewables, given the specifics in your bio I think you'd find it interesting and encouraging. We are featuring a local manufacturer of Micro Hydro for this Month's meeting on the 25th.

So glad you have joined this network. Your input will be highly valued! Hope you can come to some of our events... I fully agree with you about the discussions that need to happen to get us "out of the ditch" and am really curious about what you have to offer!
