The Tao of Global and Personal Ecology: Making Healthier Choices in Our Daily Lives

Dec 04 - 06, 2015 Begins this weekend
with Chungliang Al Huang & Amory Lovins

For more than three decades, Amory Lovins and Chungliang Al Huang have shared a special kinship in the natural wisdom of the ineffable Tao. As pioneers in their individual paths, they continue to merge in their shared living philosophy and way of being. Many years ago, in a collaboration between Lovins's Rocky Mountain Institute and Huang's Living Tao Foundation, a calligraphic poster was created of “The Tao of Leadership,” based on Verse 17 from Lao Tzu’s Tao Te Ching. Now it is a collector’s gem gracing the walls of executive offices around the world.


Advanced Energy Efficiency and Alternative Supplies for Profitable Climate Protection

Dec 11 - 13, 2015 Begins in 1 week
with Amory Lovins

Half of America’s oil and gas and three-quarters of its electricity can be saved more cheaply than supplying them from existing facilities. Dramatic advances in efficiency technologies, ways to combine and integrate them, and ways to market and implement them are synergistic with parallel revolutions in low- or no-carbon energy supplies. All are rapidly expanding. For example, “micropower” (cogeneration plus distributed renewables) already provides a fourth of the world's electricity and half its new electric capacity.
