We are posting a video of Andrew Harvey, author of The Hope, with Carolyn Baker who wrote Sacred Demise, the book our reading group used so successfully with last year.  Her latest book is Navigating the Coming Chaos:  a handbook for inner transition.  I would love to read this book with a group.  Any takers?  Roz

reply to Kathy

Kathy - the posted events are always current. Have you attended any of these events to meet some of the other Transition members? Perhaps you could inspire some of them to provide content for the website as that is what this website is all about. It's the member's forum and everyone's contributions are welcome.
