Screening of Callahan's lecture / 4.0 pre-meeting

At Earthship Seattle, we have 4 areas of focus:
1.0 - Promote Earthships
2.0 - Resources/Tools/Information
3.0 - Plan demo Earthship in Seattle
4.0 - Community/EcoVillage discussion

This event is a screening of Clinton Callahan's lecture "Relationships don't die from lack of love, relationships die from lack of intimacy".
Clinton is also the author of "Directing the power of conscious feelings", which is the best book I've ever read.

I haven't seen the lecture but I suspect it to be very interesting.

Q: How does this connect to Earthship Seattle?

A: Our focus "4.0" is about creating an EcoVillage of Earthships where a community can live happily and sustainably.

In a place where people live off-the-grid and are not tied anymore to economic stress, members will be liberated from the rat race and enjoy a lot more time and freedom.

This haven could provide a place for healing, especially in such a profoundly sick society (if I may quote Krishnamurti). But before healing others, shouldn't we be healed first?

Therefore I'd like to start the discussion for the 4.0 focus with some group discussion about our own responsibility, our weaknesses, our compassion, etc.

This is totally experimental but I believe that we shouldn't wait for the day we have 50 Earthships in a 100-acre piece of land to start wondering how and if we can live together :)


Come be an experimenter and bring your feedback, feelings, thoughts...

    To follow up, Clinton's book that I've read and consider the best book I've read, is "Directing the power of conscious feelings"
    The other book recommended by Lion is "The different drum".
    Thanks all for coming, let's talk more about communities in the future and think of what and how to implement these ideas.

      Hi:::just wondering if there is a title for the video from last night? There are lots of Callahan videos on YouTube, but not sure which one it is! Thanks again for showing it! :-)

      I checked with him and that video is not freely available, you need the DVD. I'll be happy to host another screening too.
      He'll give a couple of talks in Seattle soon: http://nextculture-us...­

    I'd like to see the second half at some point. Maybe it's on You Tube...
    It resonated with me and I feel would go far in helping people have healthy, happy, healing relationships!

    Florian, is it still a good idea for people to bring something to sit on since you're packing to leave for ESA?

    February 11, 2013

    • Florian

      I should still be able to sit 8 people, but we'll probably pass that number. So, yeah, why not :) But sitting on the floor will be an option too. The screening will only be half of the event, it's also a meeting.
