Dance & Potluck on Sunday!
VillageVisioning Potluck and DANCE
Building Community! Sunday Jan. 19, 2014
Buckland Town Hall, 2nd Floor
17 State St., Shelburne Falls, MA, near McCuskers
Deep inside we all have an inner knowing and longing for the type of life that is grounded in community. Throughout most of human history we have lived in close-knit communities while creating life together. Now in the modern world we think we have it much better - we can be independent, plugged into the system which brings us power and resources from around the globe. But part of us yearns for something that is missing: Deep connectedness to the land and EACH OTHER. We are very fortunate here in SHELBURNE FALLS that we DO have a rich sense of community and wonderful nature-based life by the river, with eagles soaring over head and local food available. Now what would make our life even better? What are our wildest dreams for our community? What else would make us feel safer if there are more huge weather events, power outages, economic shocks, or oil shortages make it impossible for trucks to deliver all our goods from afar? Lets create an opportunity to gather and honor all we love about Shelburne Falls, and dream together of what else we could create to be even more sustainable, resilient and prosperous.
Lets invite EVERYONE and have a Town-Wide Dialogue that
includes a spectrum of ages and lifestyles. Alcohol and drug free.
