A Toolbook for Sharing the Joy of a Simpler Lifestyle Through Speeches, Workshops, Events, Study/Action Groups and Simplicity Circles
The Introduction, "How to Influence Others," sets forth the purpose of Simple Living 101 - to empower people to take all three steps toward voluntary simplicity. Those steps are 1) changing oneself, 2) sharing with others, and 3) changing systems, like businesses and governments.
"Anyone who is modestly articulate and has enthusiasm for simpler living, can use this resource," said Gerald Iversen, Alternatives' National Coordinator. "It offers hope by putting concern into manageable steps toward change."
"'Simple Living 101' is a 'Toolbook,' a practical set of tools for making change happen. It includes several presentations that can be modified or used as is," Iversen said. "'Simple Living 101' will help people to share the joy of a simpler lifestyle through motivational talks, alternative workshops and events, and study-action groups and simplicity circles. This is not an academic text book. I has been field tested and has received rave reviews."
The 80 page toolbook is available free online at SimpleLivingWorks.org >> archives. Each section contains "More Resources."SLW!'s Mission: "equipping people of faith to challenge consumerism, live justly, and celebrate responsibly," serving everyone.
