Your EcoBlueprint: Three Keys to Transform Your Life and Work

From: Balehouse, by Alyssa Dennis

Our very survival depends on our ability to stay awake, to adjust to new ideas, to remain vigilant and to face the challenge of change. Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Taught by Julie Gabrielli, founder of GOforChange.

Green is hot right now. It’s all over the media: green jobs, clean energy, carbon caps, 10 Things-to-Save-the-Earth lists. So, why aren’t you doing more? Sure, you recycle (usually) and you’ve replaced some lightbulbs. But, what else could you be doing? What’s holding you back?

The good news:

A deeply satisfying life can heal our relationships with ourselves, our neighbors, and the planet. When we celebrate our creativity, our bounty, and our goodness, we are also helping the earth.

Benefits of the Program

  • Clear up misunderstandings about what best motivates us to help the environment, and start fresh with an uplifting, transformative vision.
  • See greening in its larger context – culturally, historically, and as part of the natural world.
  • Think about what going green really means to you.
  • Learn to discern which tools will help you baseline your impact, and eventually to measure and track progress. This includes the many resources and connections in your own community.
  • Discover how employing environmental practices can also alleviate financial stress.

This program will profoundly shift your perspective about the relationship between culture and nature, from:

  • control to partnership;
  • scarcity to abundance;
  • technology to ecology;
  • autonomy to interdependence; and
  • doom-and-gloom to wonder and awe

Does this sound familiar?

  • The glut of information out there is overwhelming, contradictory and confusing.
  • You are unsure of where to begin, how to prioritize.
  • You want to be deliberate in making changes, so you understand the costs and benefits.

Here’s what’s missing:

  • When we are motivated by fear, anxiety, or anger, rather than creativity, celebration, and compassion, change can be exhausting.
  • If we do not understand the big-picture context of our actions, we can’t prioritize.
  • When we are presented with too many choices, we lose focus, get stuck, and revert to comfortable patterns.
  • If we decide on a plan that has nothing to do with our core values and beliefs, or doesn’t fit into our schedule, resources, or budget, it will not last long.

The best greening program will not succeed if it isn’t customized. Your EcoBlueprint is as unique as your fingerprint!
