An evening with Charles Eisenstein, Author, Sacred Economics and The Ascent of Humanity

Normal is falling apart. But endings are often also beginnings. What are these crises transitioning us into? What might a different kind of economy look like? How can we contribute our gifts toward the transition to a more beautiful world, and how can we begin living it today? more>>
