It’s that time of year here in the United States – that brief span of time after Halloween and before the end-of-year holidays when we have the opportunity to think about our blessings.
I’m thrilled to announce that I’ll be teaching at The Well Spirituality Center in LaGrange, IL this fall. My course on eco-practices is being offered, “Ready, Set, Go!” Friends may remember the Eco-Spirituality Practice Groups we had a few years back held long-distance via conference call. Well, the course is back and being offered here in the Chicago area beginning on September 21.
It is a complex relationship we have with our stuff. Some folks seem to care less about their stuff … don’t need it, don’t collect much. Others tend to attach cherished memories to stuff. We all need stuff – whether it’s clothing to protect us from the cold or sun, to help us eat, to provide some type of shelter. But, then there is this thing—this thing called “consumerism” that exists in the culture where I live in America.
