First Unitarian Church Buchan Building


Voluntary Simplicity

This is a workbook and discussion-based course that examines the distractions that get in the way of caring for the planet and explores how consumer culture impacts us, our relationships, and the environment. It will help participants discover ways to slow down and live simply. This course was developed by the Northwest Earth Institute. (See NWEI.org for detailed description of this course.)
Copies of the workbook can be borrowed from Adult Programs for use in this course. Workbooks can also be purchased at NWEI.org for $28. The book may be shared by two participants. Each session begins with a short opening offered by a group member expressing their connection with nature. Rick will provide an opening and facilitate the first session. Participants will be asked to share the facilitator role for the remaining sessions.
Facilitator: Rick Reber has participated in NWEI discussion courses for 20 years and has trained others to do this work. He is a member of First Unitarian Church where he has also been a teacher in the children’s program.
