Simple living in a complicated world
Are you ready to unplug from the corporate advertising machine, get out of debt and start saving, learn to do-it-yourself, and have more time for family and friends?
If so check out the Simple Living Network, an online community that offers hundreds of resources for those seeking an alternative to the American Dream of more, faster, bigger, and better.
Founded in 1996 by Dave Wampler, the Network offers an antidote to what he describes as our culture’s “unhealthy, destructive, and downright irresponsible” fixation on consumerism. “It’s no longer cool to be a consumer. The world can be a better place, but only if we all take more responsibility for what we consume and how we live our lives.”
As Wampler points out, simple living is not about depriving ourselves of necessities and comforts. Instead, it’s about examining every aspect of our lives, deciding what is important and responsible, and then discarding the rest. It’s about having enough and no more.
In addition to a free newsletter, the Simple Living Network offers discussion forums and online classes, more than 1000 books, CDs, and DVDs, educational materials, and an on-line directory of contacts.
If you're ready to hop off the retail treadmill and live a more conscious, simple, healthy, and restorative lifestyle, visit the Simple Living Network at www.simpleliving.net.
