The Northwest Earth Institute’s Voluntary Simplicity five-week discussion course will meet from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the Desmond-Fish Library’s Community Room on Thursday evenings, March 27 through April 24.
Course Description: “Our decisions on how we live and consume are not made in a vacuum. We are affected by the consumer culture and society around us. Voluntary Simplicity helps participants examine how modern society influences our personal choices. Together, you explore how consumption patterns have an impact on you and your relationships, as well as the environment. Discover ways to slow down and live simply.”
Register by March 19 so that the library can order enough copies of the course book. Course participants may borrow the books from the library or purchase a copy to keep for $25.
Class size is limited to 12 students. Register at the library desk or call 845-424-3020. See more at nwei.org.
