Event Description

We are not immune to the devastations of these times. How do we strengthen our resilence? How do we stay keep our hearts open during these times? Is there a hidden potential during these times? 

These times can pierce our heart open to the essential realization shared by Thomas Merton. “We do not exist for ourselves alone, and it is only when we are fully convinced of this fact that we begin to love ourselves properly and thus also love others.” I believe learning how to intimately engage with grief in a shared community container is essential component in keeping our hearts strong, soft and compassionate. 

Grief Writing groups offer a safe space for people to gather and explore grief and loss through writing. When we honor grief as sacred, it reveals a loving intelligence that can help us restore vitality, connection and joy to our lives. These writing explorations offer an invaluable support to engage with your heart, your grief and your inner worlds. These very simple explorations can be integrated into your life on a daily basis as an ongoing deepening and support. All sharing in this group is held in a respectful space. There will be no advice given. There will also be no attempt at ‘fixing’ your grief, loss or story. This group offers a an incredible opportunity to be exactly who you are and where you are in your prcess. We invite you to join us and experience the magic that can happen when honor grief as an expression of love.

Scientists accidentally create mutant enzyme that eats plastic bottles | Environment | The Guardian

Scientists have created a mutant enzyme that breaks down plastic drinks bottles – by accident. The breakthrough could help solve the global plastic pollution crisis by enabling for the first time the full recycling of bottles. The new research was spurred by the discovery in 2016 of the first bacterium that had naturally evolved to eat plastic, at a waste dump in Japan. Scientists have now revealed the detailed structure of the crucial enzyme produced by the bug.

Beyond SolarCity, Vivint Solar and Sunrun: Who Is Actually Growing in the Residential Solar Market? | Greentech Media

A chill has hit homesolar According to GTM Research’s latest U.S. Solar Market Insight report, Q3 2017 was the third consecutive quarter that the residential solar market fell by installation volume. It's easy to blame the “big three” for this downturn -- collectively, SolarCity, Vivint Solar and Sunrun (excluding Sunrun's channel business) are down 32 percent in installation volume over the first three quarters of 2016, according to the latest U.S. PV Leaderboard. At the same time, we talk about the rest of the market -- the long tail -- as though it were an aggregate force tempering the downfalls of the behemoth big three.
