New Stories: Who We Are, What We Are Becoming, Where We Are Going

Join Michael Lerner in a conversation with Lynnaea Lumbard—co-president of New Stories, a non-profit educational organization serving as a resource center, creative collaboratory, and project incubator in support of emerging new stories for who we are as humanity, what we are becoming, how we are changing and where we are going together.

Three principle foci of New Stories are (1) strengthening great transition stories, (2) fostering thriving communities, and (3) the Whidbey GeoDome Project, headed by Rick Ingrasci, a portable inflatable dome with an internal projector that offers the experience of the universe story in a way similar to a planetarium.
