NEW SOCIETY BLOG — Resilience
Today we share the first principle from James Gruber’s new monthly series on the twelve guiding principles for building a healthier community. The series provides specific practical actions and tools from Building Community for local community leaders who are successfully confronting these challenging problems and are working with their communities to find solutions.
Today Joanna Macy and Molly Brown, authors of Coming Back to Life explain the practice of simple openness, as in this exercise of Breathing Through, adapted from an ancient Buddhist meditation for developing compassion.
Today James Gruber, author of Building Community shares the story of Mill Hollow, the community where Gruber’s journey to writing his book all began. This story reminds us how a community can extend beyond one locality and be nurtured virtually.
With the US election upon us, we turn to the book Intrinsic Hope for inspiration, as it feels we all need a deeper source of hope right now and Kate Davies expresses so well the importance of accepting our emotions, as a way to open our hearts and move into a place of transformation and action.
In Human Permaculture: Life Design for Resilient Living, authors Bernard Alonso and Cecile Guiochon create a guide for taking principles of permaculture to redesign your life and create a sustainable existence within the community. In their book Alonso and Guiochon unpack how to use zone 00 to transform your internal landscape before (or during) changing your environment.
