November 13, 2011, Shannon Gorres gives a tour of the Cosmic Beauty School in Lawrence, KS . The CBS, now in its third year, is working to provide an urban demonstration site for radical sustainability, social justice, and holistic health.
Here is how they describe their vision:
We are building an urban homestead, a learning laboratory, and community resource.
We strive to embody justice in our actions from personal to global.
We challenge systemic oppression and its vested interests.
We ground ourselves in developing our capacities for intimacy, cooperation, and growth.
We collaborate on projects to cultivate dignity in life and self-determined community.
We work within the limits and gifts of nature.
