Welcome to Thriving Planet,
a place to imagine how we can create a way of living that helps us thrive as human beings, and cooperate with nature in a way that sustains the natural balance of life on Earth.
You’ll also find inspirational poetry, thoughts and stories about people who have survived very difficult times and now thrive. We will learn what kind of internal and external resources they had and needed to make it through a difficult time and come out thriving on the other side.
Coming soon, the Thriving Planet blog will encourage you to tell your story and connect with others who have a vision of a better world.
Together we will find or create:
Ways of coming together in loving community to provide for our needs and to manifest our hopes and dreams – do our life’s work – accomplish the things we want to achieve and live the way we want to live.
Means of freeing ourselves from the lifestyle that has some of us going to work in a job that has no meaning or joy to make money to provide for basic necessities and make purchases that provide short-term gratification that keeps us going to work in those jobs.
Systems and tools that help us connect to others who have found innovative ways of living to share our ideas and learn about theirs.
Information, tools and support for taking care of our resources and the planet.
A time and place to gather and remind each other to rejuvenate and connect to spiritual source and inspiration.
