“Our house is on fire. I am here to say, our house is on fire….. I want you to panic. I want you to feel the fear I feel every day. And then I want you to act. I want you to act as you would in a crisis. I want you to act as if the house is on fire. Because it is.”

— Greta Thunberg

In this “Conversation,” we will move into our hearts to discover what gets in the way of change. We will ask what the heart wants to do, what it is afraid to do, and what it doesn’t know how to do. In particular, we will seek to speak openly and vulnerably about our motivations that lead to choices for comfort — as compared to the willingness to be uncomfortable for the sake of the Earth. We will look at what our choices could be — and, we will look with compassion at the internal and external obstacles to changing how we live.

GurujiMa will offer an introduction, followed by our conversation together.We welcome you to join us. (No preregistration is needed.)

This event is hosted by the Driving Cars, Planting Trees Committee of the Village of Light Ashram: Diana, Jim, Kristen, Michaela and Robert — with GurujiMa.
