COLLABORATIVE ACTION IS EFFORTLESS ACTION
SEEKING TEACHERS, FACILITATORS, STUDENTS AND SPONSORS
If you have experienced the profound joy, hope and power of collaborative action and shared impact, you know that it is addictive! It is addictive because that is what we are wired for, especially for creating positive and long lasting healing transformations in our life-sustaining ecosystems and communities. Once you experience it, you get to yearn for it as an ultimate and continuous life purpose and drive. The beauty of collaborative action for the benefit of all life is that it is effortless action. Taoist philosophy calls that Wu Wei, a creative participation in the cosmos in a manner that coheres with the flow of nature. My students and I have explored this concept deeply in the Sustainability Literacy for a Regenerative World course - you can take a peak at one of the slides that helped us focus that conversation below.
Collaborative action for the benefit of all life is effortless action and it is conducive to joy, hope and power.

1ST PART OF THIS BLOG
The first session of my SUSTAINABILITY LITERACY FOR A REGENERATIVE WORLD course happened Live Monday, October 3rd. 17 people committed to engage with all the parts of the course, dive into the content, participate in the live sessions (some missed the 1st session), perform the tasks (homework :) and interact with the course community to learn together. A few more registered in the course to have access to the content only, and they were inspired to do so since the course registration had a sliding scale donation based price starting at $20. This might have been the last time I did it this way, and that is what my partners and advisors are persuading me towards - we shall see! This course is too powerful not to make it accessible to as many people as possible.
I am writing this first part of the blog for you to share some highlights from this 1st session of course, share about what you may be seeing coming out from it further and invite you to help me decide when to launch its second edition next.

We started with gratitude and all were invited to consider starting anything and everything with gratitude all the time! See below why.
