A Sacred Inclusion Network Community Night
Sacred Economics is a vision for a future economy that is grounded in gratitude, giving, and connection. It contrasts with the current global economic structure that operates from the perspective of scarcity, greed and unending growth.
It's main theorist is Charles Eisenstein, a visionary author who writes frequently about economics, spirituality, and the ecology movement. His book, Sacred Economics, explores practices such as localized economies, wealth redistribution, and the importance of recognizing and honoring our interconnectedness with the natural world.
In this Sacred Inclusion Network gathering, we'll begin by examining the the principles of Sacred Economics, address some of the obstacles of transitioning into this new paradigm, and highlight communities moving in this direction.
This is a network Community Night, led by members for members and friends and supporters. It will be facilitated by Arturo Gonzales and Ian Lewis.
Arturo is a yoga and movement teacher based in Heredia, Costa Rica. He and his family grow food free from pesticides and chemiclas, make compost to restore the land, and use holistic eco-friendly practices as much as they can. He's particularly interested in the Venus Project, which presents a new socio-economic model utilizing science and technology toward social betterment to achieve a sustainable civilization.
Ian is the Assistant Director of the Sacred Inclusion Network. His experience includes spending a year and a half living in Asian countries, where the native Buddhist influences had a deep impact on him. In 2018 he attempted to visit the seven chakras of the world, falling short and visiting four. Currently, he lives in Ecuador, where he leads the Network's South American initiative and studies and practices regenerative agriculture.
