Exploring Simple Living
In this session we’ll explore advantages and disadvantages of simple living and discuss alternatives to our present lifestyle. We’ll examine the consequences resulting from over-consumption and how it’s affecting our environment and our social, psychological and spiritual well-being. At the end we’ll identify some personal benefits of adopting voluntary simplicity as a reasonable and sustainable way of life.
Tonight’s presenter is Peter Potamianos, a member of the Sierra Club who was recently elected to the Executive Committee of the River Prairie Group of the Sierra Club in DuPage. A Chicago area native, Peter earned a BA degree from Northwestern University in history and religious studies; and, received a fellowship to the University of Illinois where he completed studies for his Ph.D. in English. Peter worked for AT&T and retired from Ameritech as Director of External Affairs. Peter then continued as a consultant for the Ameritech Foundation in Corporate Communications running the five-state United Way program and projects involving the volunteer services of the Ameritech Pioneers. He has taught as an adjunct professor at many local educational institutions and recently retired after teaching for 25 years at College of DuPage. He and his wife Mary are long-time residents of Glen Ellyn.
