CLIMATE DESTABILIZATION: OUR LONG SLOW EMERGENCY

VIDEO & DISCUSSION NIGHT ~ 2nd Sunday of each month, 6:30-8:30pm

We are at a crossroads in our history. We are on the precipice of destroying our habitat, the very earth that gives us sustenance and supports life. Our multiple challenges of climate change, deforestation, overgrazing, fisheries collapse, food insecurity, and the rapid extinction of species are all part of a single, over-arching problem: Humanity has overshot the carrying capacity of the Earth.

Join with others willing to honestly face our situation and have the most important discussion of our lives: how we pull out of our ecological nosedive and transition to a life-affirming global culture, an earth community of sustainability, justice, and peace!

We show a different video each session and discuss a range of important issues and options to address them. For detailed information on each session, see https://betseydowning.com/upcoming-events/ . Information will be posted 5-6 days prior to the event.

PRACTICES AND ACTIONS TO CREATE RESILIENCE ~ 4th Sunday of each month, 6:30-8:00pm

In these sessions we focus on creating resilience, both individually and in community. It includes personal practices such as deep breathing and meditation to calm and center ourselves, as well as actions we can take in our communities to adapt to the coming changes brought on by climate destabilization. Bring your comments, questions, ideas, and friends! Free! Open to all!  Presented by the Citizens Climate Collaborative: Betsey Downing, Tana Hartman Thorn, Dirk Kelder, and Jim Sander.

Hart’s Mill Ecovillage and Farm

Hart’s Mill Ecovillage and Farm: What is an ecovillage? How is it different from cohousing? What is the role of this new model of community in transforming the world, ecologically, economically, and socially? And how will it look? These are just a few of the questions that we can explore together in this relaxed and interactive gathering.

Hart’s Mill is an evolving community on 112 acres of land located in
Orange County between Hillsborough and Mebane. The farm is already
productive, and we are finalizing the designs for approximately 32
housing units, both single-family and shared. We are looking for
additional members to help us build our vision of a cooperative,
sustainable, and creative ecovillage. Hart’s Mill members Marilyn
Grubbs and Richard Pinneau coordinate these evenings, to explore how ecovillages can contribute to greener, more harmonious living in the 21st Century. Contact marilyngrubbs@gmail.com for more information.

Samadhi LIVE!! FREE!! AWESOME!

Samadhi is a soulful kirtan band based in North Carolina. Although the term kirtan is originally from India, we celebrate traditions from around the world that foster community gatherings centered around devotional call and response singing. Kirtan transforms the spirit, bringing us together, unifying our hearts and voices, sharing in the spirit. Because kirtan requires participation, WE NEED YOU! Our music is as diverse as our band, and with influences that include jazz, gospel, indie, rock n’roll, and soul, our chants range from moments of sweet intimacy to resounding expressions of the heart. Our members include Krishna Nama, Prema, Rangadevi, Steve, Kat, Julian, Courtney & Vikram.

MAGIC! LIVE! with Steve Dixon

My name is Steven Dixon.I was born and raised in the Chapel Hill/Carrboro area and I have been practicing magic since around the age of 8 when I received my first magic kit. Around the time of middle school/high school, I started to delve into the world of card magic, and that became my passion. I have performed close up/walk around magic at various establishments, including Parizade, Mellow Mushroom, and Spice Street. I am currently on Imagine Circus’s list of magicians for the area, and you can sometimes find me doing street magic in the downtown Carrboro/Chapel Hill area. I’m currently working on a stand up/parlor style show, which is what I will be performing at OASIS. Please come out for a wonderful night of magic, laughter, and entertainment!”
