Leen Gorissen - Change the World City by City (Sausalito Store)

Monday, October 22, 2018 - 6:00pm

New initiatives, ideas and products change the way we relate to one another and to our environment, as well as the way we define and fulfil our needs. They create opportunities for experimenting and learning, which can help our societies transition towards greater sustainability. But how can we implement transition in a useful way? Change the World City by City examines the ways in which urban transition initiatives work, how they influence each other, and how they can make our cities thrive in a sustainable manner. Among others, it puts forward a view on the conditions that can aid accelerating change towards a sustainable low-carbon society, on possibilities for policy change, and on adaptive mechanisms that will improve decision making.

Leen Gorissen, PhD in biology, is an Innovation biologist, sustainability transitions expert and founder of Studio Transitio. Previously Transition Research Coordinator at VITO Belgium and currently collaborator of nexxworks, systemic innovation and regenerators, she helps companies to discover that consulting nature makes sense for business, and guides them through transformative (business model) innovation processes.

Mirabai Bush - Walking Each Other Home (Sausalito Store)

Thursday, October 25, 2018 - 6:00pm

In Conversation with Norman Fisher

We all sit on the edge of a mystery. We have only known this life, so dying scares us--and we are all dying. But what if dying were perfectly safe? What would it look like if you could approach dying with curiosity and love, in service of other beings? What if dying were the ultimate spiritual practice?

Ram Dass and Mirabai Bush began their friendship more than four decades ago at the foot of their guru, Neem Karoli Baba, also known as Maharaj-ji. He transmitted to them a simple philosophy: love everyone, tell the truth, and give up attachment to material things. After impacting millions of people through the years with these teachings, they have reunited once more with Walking Each Other Home to enlighten and engage readers on the spiritual opportunities within the dying process. They generously share intimate personal experiences and timeless practices, told with courage, humor, and heart, gently exploring every aspect of this journey. And, at 86 years old, Ram Dass reminds us, "This time we have a real deadline."

In Walking Each Other Home, readers will learn about: guidelines for being a "loving rock" for the dying, how to grieve fully and authentically, how to transform a fear of death, leaving a spiritual legacy, creating a sacred space for dying, and much more.

"Everybody you have ever loved is a part of the fabric of your being now," says Ram Dass. The body may die, but the soul remains. Death is an invitation to a new kind of relationship, in the place where we are all One. Join these two lifelong friends and spiritual luminaries as they explore what it means to live and die consciously, remember who we really are, and illuminate the path we walk together.

Mirabai Bush teaches practices and develops programs through the application of contemplative principles and values to organizational life. She is a cofounder of the Center for Contemplative Mind in Society, founding board member of the Seva Foundation, and coauthor (with Ram Dass) of Compassion in Action. She lives in Massachusetts.

Bethanie Murguia - Do You Believe in Unicorns? (Sausalito Store)

Saturday, November 10, 2018 - 11:00am

Special Event for Kids!

Is believing in magic the key to seeing a unicorn? If you keep your eyes open to wonder, the possibilities are endless.

Is that a horse wearing a hat? It’s definitely not a unicorn in disguise — that would be ridiculous, right? It’s probably just a horse that’s having a bad hair day. Or trying to keep the sun out of its eyes. Or perhaps this horse just really likes hats! If you follow it long enough, maybe it will take off its hat and you’ll finally know for sure. Or will you? It’s all a matter of perspective in Do You Believe in Unicorns? -- a cheerful, cheeky story about seeing magic in the everyday.

Bethanie Murguia is the author-illustrator of several picture books, including I Feel Five!, The Best Parts of Christmas, and The Too-Scary Story.
