If we want to see a bright world and future for both humanity and the Earth, we need to make some changes in both our attitudes and actions now. This class will suggest some of those needed changes and how they can free up our creativity and our sense of the sacredness of all life to bring about a future of peace and prosperity for us all. Authors such as Riane Eisler (The Chalice and the Blade, The Real Wealth of Nations) and David Korten (The Great Turning: From Empire to Earth Community) have explored these themes extensively and the class will draw on their work as well as others. A combination of lecture and discussion will show that simple changes in our everyday attitudes and actions can start a chain reaction of better relations with others and with the Earth itself. We truly can co-create a bright future for this interdependent world.
