Live Well! Viva Bien!
Sign up now! Ever wondered about downsizing? Living a slower life? National best-selling author of New Slow City, William Powers will share his personal efforts to live a slow, intentional life in one of the world’s fastest cities – New York – when he gives the keynote talk at Cool Davis’ workshop “Living Well Today.” In addition he will share his current efforts in Bolivia, a country that in 2010 passed laws protecting the rights of Mother Earth and formalizing government policies on “vivir bien,” the indigenous concept of “living well”.
Special guest Sue Barton will add a Davis perspective when she talks about the local challenges and joys of simplifying life. Sue is a homeowner in Parkview Place, the only multi-unit building in the City of Davis to be certified LEEDS platinum.
The workshop, which will include slides, breakout groups, and refreshments, is scheduled for 3 – 5:30 p.m. on Sunday, September 27, 2015 at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Davis, 27074 Patwin Road, Davis, CA. The suggested donation at the door is $10-20.
Proceeds will be shared with the Bolivian community-based school in the town of Samaipata, “Flor de Montaña”, which focuses its education (K-12) around Mother Earth and furthering the principles of “vivir bien.” Workshop reservations here .
Mr. Power’s visit is co-sponsored by Cool Davis, the Green Sanctuary Committee of the UU Church of Davis, Church and Society Ministry of Davis Community Church, Lutheran Church of the Incarnation, and the Yolo Interfaith Alliance for Climate Justice. The event is open to the public.
