NW Earth Institute’s newest course book is here! We are very excited to announce the launch of A Different Way: Living Simply in a Complex World, which explores practical ways to simplify your life and reduce your impact, while also reconnecting with what matters most in your life. This new book explores issues related to simplicity and time, technology, consumption and the media, and provides an opportunity to reconnect with your values while discovering how simple living intersects with sustainability — at the personal and global levels.
This new course book shares insights on how simple living is a way to make our own paths in life – paths that allow for investing our time in the things that matter most to us, making choices that create less waste and more good, using technology intentionally, and critically examining the messages that tell us what to believe, what to value, and who to be.
You can order your copy of A Different Way today, and engage your network in a discussion group on making a positive impact during these complex times.
For those who have used our Voluntary Simplicity course book in the past, you won’t want to miss A Different Way! This new book is not a revision or replacement of the Voluntary Simplicity course book, but rather continues the exploration of simple living with entirely new content. If you’ve organized a Voluntary Simplicity course in the past, consider reconvening your group to continue the dialogue and discover new ways to take action on the issues that matter to you.
