The Great Turning refers to this historical moment in which we live, as our civilization moves from an industrial growth society to a sustainable earth community. Students examine the basic premises of the Great Turning, from holding actions in defense of earth, to new alternatives, to the philosophical and spiritual resources needed for this transformation. We will engage in two full day workshops facilitated by groups who are consciously participating in the work of the Great Turning -- the Pachamama Alliance and Great Turning Northwest.
