SLOW IS BEAUTIFUL
A great shift is imperative in this age of crises caused by our own civilization with its race to get faster, bigger, and more. This workshop is an opportunity to define the nature of change that society and we ourselves must go through. While unlearning the economic mindset, we will relearn a way of life defined by the three “s” words, Slow, Small, Simple, key concepts in traditional Asian wisdom. The great turning may also be characterized as one “from global to local” from “excess to enough” from “competition to sharing” and “theft to gift”. This workshop will be an exploration into a new vision of an “economics of wellbeing” as a pursuit towards a local, communal, ecological, healthy, ethical, peaceful, joyful and loving way of life.
