1) Voluntary Simplicity
Thursdays, February 10 - March 17, 2011 - 5:30-7:30 p.m.

Voluntary Simplicity is designed to help participants move toward a life simple in means and rich in satisfaction. The course investigates the meaning of voluntary simplicity by exploring the material and psychological distractions that prevent us from caring for the earth and by acknowledging the connection between our lifestyle choices and the condition of the earth. Participants will gain insight into the benefits of simple living through readings, discussions, case studies and personal action plans for living simply on Earth. The Simple Living Action Plan includes ways to implement changes regarding consumerism, time management and living deliberately with the right livelihood.

Location: Heifer Village, 1 World Village, Little Rock

Tuition fee: $40 per person (includes course and materials)

Registration closes February 3, 2011. Registration is limited to 16 participants for a more in-depth and personal growth experience. Request a reservation for Voluntary Simplicity by clicking here.

2) Discovering a Sense of Place
Tuesdays, March 8 - April 26, 2011 - 5:30-7:30 p.m.

This course focuses on knowing and protecting the place you live. In our fast-paced society, malls, restaurants, supermarkets, and the like pop-up without much relationship to the environment or the community around them. The readings from this course suggest how we consciously immerse ourselves where we live. Come explore through readings and discussions how to better understand your sense of place - and how connections to our “places” can have profound benefits for ourselves, our communities and the Earth.
