Less Is More – NWETC Course

Less is More: Simplicity, Happiness, and the Planet in Troubled Time

650 South Orcas Street, Suite 220 (Georgetown)

The Northwest Environmental Training Center (an EOS Alliance program) is offering this course taught by Cecile Andrews, author of Less is More and Slow is Beautiful.

The course description:

  • Many people are afraid of the future and anxious about the present. We are destroying the planet, undermining happiness, and clinging to an unsustainable economy. Our obsessive pursuit of wealth is not working.
  • But there is another way. Less can be More. Throughout history wise people have argued that we need to live more simply—that only by limiting outer wealth can we have inner wealth.
  • When we have too much, we savor nothing. When we choose less, we regain our life and can think and feel deeply. Ultimately, a life of less connects us with one true source of happiness: being part of a caring community.

This course shows how to turn individual change into a movement that leads to policy changes in government and corporate behavior, work hours, the wealth gap, and sustainability. It will appeal to those who want to take back their lives, their planet, and their well-being.  Register Online by clicking here, advance registration is $65, higher for later registration.
