'Spinning Threads of Radical Aliveness' Reading and Discussion Group


Do you carry within you a longing for an entirely different world?

One which is aligned with our human needs, in which we collaborate with each other and the natural world, in which separation, scarcity, and powerlessness are a thing of the past?

If so, Miki Kashtan's book Spinning Threads of Radical Aliveness could give you an extraordinary gift by serving as a blueprint for how you can become a one-person model of what life could be like.

To buy the book or get more information about the book see:

We will meet once a week to reflect on the reading and how it impacts us in our lives. Through this process, we hope to assist one another in regaining our faith in humanity.

Introduction night Oct 14th. If you'd like to be in the group, please commit to attending most of the weekly meetings Oct 14th - Dec 16th, on Mondays from 7:30-9pm.

Location at a private residence near Sundance in Southeast Eugene.

No one turned away for lack of funds. If possible, please purchase the book and read the introduction before the first meeting.
