Well, well, well - who knew? I would love to attend this summit on slow living, but it just doesn't fit into my travel plans this year. These annual summits started in 2011, so I can only hope that there will be one in 2014 so I might attend. But even reading about it on their website (please see below) was educational.
The Slow Living Vision
The Slow Living Vision is of an Earth where humankind, honoring and celebrating the profound connectedness of all people, places and living beings, gives back by co-creating mutually supportive communities, bioregions and economic systems — and where we combine the wisdom of the past with a vision for the future to ensure a balanced, fulfilling way of life for all generations to come.http://www.slowlivingsummit.org/what-is-slow-living/
