The Gift Economy with Margaret Wheatley

Organizational development expert Margaret Wheatley will speak on transforming the economy for community and sustainability.

The South African people have a word called Ubuntu, "A person is only a person through other people." Come join in envisioning a new economy based on the principal that we are all inextricably bound together. Margaret will lead a probing exploration of the nature of the gift economy, and how we can do our work from innate human qualities of generosity, caring and a desire to be together--qualities that we humans still possess even in the current climate of bargaining, distrust, and self-interest.

Full-day workshop offered on Nov. 2.
