You are invited to join author John de Graaf for an important discussion about AFFLUENZA, a painful, contagious, socially transmitted condition of overload, debt, anxiety, and waste.
The appetite that drives us to spend most waking hours dedicated to getting and spending has broken our connection to what it means to be creators rather than consumers, driven our fossil fuel demand to unsustainable heights, and alienated us from our communities. But Affluenza's impact on our planet and our lives can be turned around.
Join us next Thursday, March 13th at YWCA to discuss how we can work together to overcome affluenza in our community and regain our creativity, control, and time.
This event is FREE and open to all!
John de Graaf is author of Affluenza: How Overconsumption is Killing Us and How to Fight Back, Take Back Your Time: Fighting Overwork and Time Poverty in America, What's the Economy For, Anyway?: Why It's Time to Stop Chasing Growth and Start Pursuing Happiness.
