The World We are Creating Presentation & Dialogue at Deschutes Library
Presentation and dialogue by Dr. Ruth L. Miller, internationally known futurist and metaphysician, with degrees in anthropology, environmental studies, and systems sciences.
Dr. Miller has studied, practiced, and taught courses on new paradigms, systems thinking, futures research, and much more. Building on her stunning presentation last spring, Dr. Miller, shares some of the many signs of an emerging culture that individuals and groups around the world have been creating. Outside of mainstream media and beyond anything governments can affect, people are discovering and implementing systemic advances which can lead to a sustainable future for all. The World We Are Creating looks at the choices we and millions of others are making, and how those will play out in the years ahead.
