20 Dec Minimalism for Maximalists
In a world rapidly expanding, our over-consumption and mismanagement of resources is destroying the Earth. In this workshop you will learn tips about how to transition towards a zero waste lifestyle and how you can benefit from it financially and emotionally while simultaneously improving your health and the environment! Minimalism isn’t about having an all white simple and sparse space, it is about figuring out your own unique aesthetic and having only what you actually need and love, and responsibly letting go of the rest.
This worskshop will provide practical resources and information about how to shop smarter for food, clothes, and “products”, how to be happier with less, and how to ethically declutter. You will learn what you can do personally to lessen your environmental footprint, deal with emotional attachment to objects and how improving these aspects relates to all areas of your well-being. There will be an emphasis on learning how to declutter, as well as taking a closer look at *why* it is that we end up with a never-ending stream of “stuff” coming into our lives. Analyzing everything you have and learning how to say “no” to more things allows you to get the most out of what you already own, and gives you the confidence to let go more freely.
By the end of class, people will have a deeper understanding of their buying habits and how these habits are related to every aspect of their life and health. Through sharing our experiences on how we are each doing our part, we will inspire each other to do even better and create a community of support by shifting away from disposable culture and into a more regenerative future!
Minimalism for Maximalists will be shared by Corinne Loperfido.
