How do you envision a successful economy without continuous growth?
It helps to consider a prior question: how do you envision a successful planet earth without continuous growth? That is easy to envision because it exists! The earth as a whole does not grow in physical dimensions. Yet it changes qualitatively, it evolves and develops. Total matter on earth cycles, but does not grow. Energy from the sun flows through the earth coming in as a radiant low-entropy energy and exiting as high-entropy heat. But the solar flow is not growing. Nearly all life is powered by this entropic throughput of solar energy. There is birth and death, production and depreciation. New things evolve; old things go extinct. There is continual change. There is qualitative development. But the earth is not growing!
The economy is a subsystem of the earth. Imagine that the economy grows physically to encompass the entire earth. Then the economy would have to conform to the behavior mode of the earth because the two would be identical. The economy could no longer grow, and would have to live on a virtually constant solar flow with closed material cycles, approximating a steady state — an exceedingly large steady state to be sure. The economy would have taken over the management of the entire ecosystem — every amoeba, every molecule, and every photon would be allocated according to human purposes and priced accordingly. All “externalities” would be internalized as required by efficient markets, and nothing could any longer be external to the all-encompassing economy. The information and management problem would be astronomical — central planning raised to the thousandth power! Long before such a total takeover of the ecosystem, the human economy and the civilization it supports would have collapsed under the weight of God-like information requirements and managerial complexity.

The Human Design System shows how unique we are and helps us understand our own challenges in life. I’ll be speaking with Mark Germain, a fellow Human Design coach, and we’ll describe the ways that the chakra system in the charts offer insight into our struggles and gifts.
We’ll be talking about each chakra and what it says about how we know ourselves or not. For very many people, a majority of the chakras in their particular charts lack definition and offer challenges.
We’ll help you understand what this can mean to you.
You can email me for a free chart to be emailed back to you so you can see what we’re talking about in your own case – firstname.lastname@example.org.
Be sure to tune in to learn more about yourself.

We all come from the past and are living in the effect of it. Certain aspects of the past can affect us immensely in many ways. It’s certainly helpful to learn what happened and perhaps why so we can see the patterns of it in our current lives.
Regressive hypnosis is a wonderful tool to be able to travel back and have a first-hand experience of previous events that we might not consciously have any idea about.
I’m interviewing Georgina Cannon who has worked with thousands of people and wrote the book “Return Again”. We’ll be talking about the power of regression and the insights and healing that comes from it. Be sure to tune in and learn about the power of tapping into the past.

I’m so very happy and honoured to be able to share this historic day with you.
The energy in this room — and the hope the founding of this new union has inspired across the country – is contagious.
It feels like this could be the beginning of the fight back we have all been waiting for, the one that will chase Harper from power and restore the power of working people in Canada.
So welcome to the world UNIFOR.
