Invitation to the Annual Meet at Navadarshanam: Jan. 26, 2016

You are cordially invited to the annual meet at Navadarshanam on Jan 26, 2016 with family and friends.

Going Local Naturally:   Embracing local futures as part of the move to sustainable living alternatives
The session briefly examines how much we have lost in the last quarter of a century in the consumptive splurge that is at the heart of the current economic growth engine and how little we have gained in the progression towards that most fundamental human seeking - a basic sense of fulfillment.  The session then makes the journey back home to our own locales and explores the choices we can make to reclaim some of the lost horizons, perhaps ways we can turn our urban centres into more sustainable habitats for humanity and specifically examines the idea of localizing our food choices. 

A high-light of the afternoon is a Kabir-Bhajan session led by Tara Kini  and Deepa.
