The Great Story, Thomas Berry film/discussion

As a pioneer in the field of spirituality and ecology, Thomas Berry created a quiet revolution. He was a monk, a cultural historian, an author, a teacher and a mystic. At the heart of this film is Berry's experience of the universe as a cosmic liturgy. He reminds us that "we are not a collection of objects but a communion of subjects." His values are rooted in this sacred cosmology which includes the entire natural world. The mountains, rivers, birds, fish--all living organisms--are not here for our use, but exist in dynamic relationship: a relationship that allows us to become who we are. As Berry says, "I am not myself without everything else."  
This video will be followed by a discussion led by Karen Bernard. Karen is one of the founders of Dream of the Earth, a local nonprofit that has taken on Berry's vision of "the great work," the work of reinventing ourselves as humans through the telling of a comprehensive story that we can all live by. Many people now believe that this new story, based on solid empirical science, has the power to usher in a new "ecozoic" era, a time when human beings live in mutually enhancing relationship with the rest of creation.

Suggested Donation for movie viewing is $3.00/person. Proceeds split between the designated non-profit and Schwartz Living Market for its continued Permaculture/Transition Town Demonstration Project Development.

Yes, this is slow development, and mindful development and happens in an unexpected way!

Hey, bring some money to spend and bring lots and lots of friends and neighbors. At 3:00 PM each day, Elisa Beck will give a tour of the building. Charge $5.00/person or $15.00/family. Is this a Grand Opening, a grand re-opening, or simply a reinvention of all that already was and will continue to be?

It's really the evolution of Schwartz Market which began as Schwartz Sanitary Super market in the early part of the century with Helen and Morris Schwartz and so much more family. This is the story of evolution and revolution at this point. We are re-opening the space as a Living Market. Use your imagination and you too can be part of the action, not just the reaction!
