Small Group Resources from the Northwest Earth Institute.


We believe that people will make changes best and for the long term if they do it with others. Consider therefore a support group or study group to learn about the changes needed and to change accordingly. Many resources are available. Along with materials from other groups, we highly recommend the 4 to 7 session courses from Northwest Earth Institute. They are well-informed, well-organized, and inspirational. All reports we have received are positive. Below is a list of courses they offer along with a brief profile. Go to their website and find out more about them: www.nwei.org.
