A Transition Albany Health Presentation

Yes, it is still Summer. And the perfect time to prepare for the challenges of Winter!

Would you like to go through the cold and flu season relatively confident that you know what to do? If and when you should get a cold? Or the flu? Better yet, would you like to increase your chances of NOT coming down with either one?

If you are one of those who would rather skip the flu shot, then this class is for you!

So join us!

Together we will learn how to prepare for Winter, reduce the likelihood of getting sick and develop self-care skills to help us breeze through the cold and flu season relatively unscathed!

What the class will cover:

  • Immune boosters
  • Preparing for Winter (including DIY herbal preparations, teas & supplies)
  • How to stop a cold/flu on its tracks
  • Home remedies to help you recover fast
  • Nourishing food
  • Gentle exercises to nudge yourself to recovery.

Responding to Abrupt Climate Change, with Guy McPherson

May 7 @ 1:30 pm - Event Details

Guy McPhersonGuy McPherson, of Nature Bats Last, is a rare phenomenon: a man who is willing to share the facts about the likely imminent effects of climate change on our species – yup: the fate of the human race in the Sixth Great Extinction. He presents the facts with a good dose of “gallows humor.”

He will be making a presentation, “Responding to Abrupt Climate Change” at the West Berkeley Library on Saturday, May 7th at 1:30 pm. Please join Guy and other humans who are willing to hear the stark truths of our predicament, and discover what beauty can arise in life when things are clear. Bring your friends and loved ones.

The free afternoon talk will be followed by a fundraiser and book-signing at the nearby Highwire Coffee Roasters (see image below for addresses). Guy is making his West Coast tour on the gift economy and we welcome your financial contributions. (more…)

The Future of Energy

April 3 @ 2:00 pm - Event Details

 

Join us for a free community screening of the Future of Energy – a positive documentary about the renewable energy revolution taking place in the USA right now (see the trailer here).  The question is not if we are going to go to 100% renewable energy, it is how and when. “This is the largest social movement in human history” –Joanna Macy (quoted in the film)

After the screening, learn about Community Choice (Energy) Aggregation in the East Bay and why this is the way to go forward… Alex DiGiorgio from Marin Clean Energy and speakers from the East Bay Clean Power Alliance will talk about how the Alameda County Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) program – where we’re the ones producing the energy we use – is progressing. We’ll talk about how to invest in local energy and how to learn to install your own solar panels….

“100% renewable energy is not a dream. The technology is there. The money is there. We only need the belief and the political will to create this inspiring reality. That’s why The Future of Energy is such an important film. Watch it. Share it. And let’s create the future of clean energy NOW.” – Jurriaan Kamp, co-founder and editor-in-chief The Intelligent Optimist
