A SIMPLER WAY: CRISIS AS OPPORTUNITY
Many people believe that you don't know what you've got until it's gone, but this community has discovered that the exact opposite is true. Gone are the conveniences and accessories of present-day civilization - electricity, cell phones, and internet access - and in its place is the truest form of a social network. Some have left drudging 40-hour work weeks spent in the service of large and faceless corporations. In their new reality, they find everything they need in the natural world that surrounds them in every direction and through the support they find in their fellow co-inhabitants.
Their cause is grounded in more than just a desire for personal growth and experience. They see the ills of a dying planet and an overly stressed population. From their perspective, the next evolution of the human species will only be made possible by going back to the fundamentals. Green energy, farming and artisan craft making each play a major role in realizing this potential.
A Simpler Way: Crisis as Opportunity follows each step of this fascinating year-long journey, and it’s clear that every challenge faced by this close-knit community has opened a door to revelation. Upon the completion of this project, each of them will take these lessons of simple living back home with them and create a lasting change that reverberates to others.
