The Story of Us

Where have we come from? Where are we going? These questions are as relevant today as they have ever been. As the older stories we have told each other about 'us' become increasingly irrelevant & sometimes dangerous, it becomes necessary that we evolve new stories, new visions and practices that will help us adapt to our global life conditions, and move forward into an uncertain future.

A first step towards evolving more comprehensive, adaptive and meaningful 'stories of us' is to help people everywhere understand the interconnected complexity of our existence.

The Story of Stuff is a fast-paced, fact-filled video that looks at the underside of our production and consumption patterns. It intelligently exposes the connections between a huge number of environmental and social issues, and attempts to bring people together to create a more sustainable and just world. The Story of Stuff helps to increase the imaginative capacities of people everywhere by demonstrating the interconnected complexity of our existence.
In 2008, challenge yourself to learn more about the world you live & to make a commitment to change your life by embracing the most authentic realities of nature, self and culture.
“To maintain a skillful balance between the inner and outer aspects of our lives is an enormously challenging and continuously changing process. The objective is not to dogmatically live with less, but is a more demanding intention of living with balance in order to find a life of greater purpose, fulfillment and satisfaction.” --Duane Elgin
