A DIFFERENT WAY: LIVING SIMPLY IN A COMPLEX WORLD: a free group discussion course at Putney Library

Do you find yourself wondering how best to live a life of meaning, purpose and presence in these increasingly complex times?

Join Paul LeVasseur, longtime Putney resident, for a 6 week facilitated discussion course that explores ways to live in harmony with our values while caring for ourselves, our community, and this precious earth. The course will meet Monday nights at Putney Library January 13 – February 17th, 6:30pm-8pm. Before the course begins, there will be an information session Monday, January 6th 6:30 – 8:00 p.m.

The discussion topics will include living a life of happiness and meaning, busyness, distraction and mindfulness, consuming less while creating more, technology and its capacity for connection and disconnection, resisting materialistic values, and embracing simplicity, a different way.

While there is no charge for the course, enrollment is limited, so please contact Paul to enroll or ask any questions you might have: or
