Book Groups 2 and 6 celebrate completing Transition Companion

To celebrate completing discussion of the Transition Companion book, book groups 2 and 6 celebrated May 30 with a potluck and screening of the new Transition 2.0 film.

Preparing dinner…




And relaxing for the show….


Over the summer, the book group will be discussing The Empowerment Manual, which is about collaborative groups, from Transition and Occupy all the way to Cohousing and Ecovillages.  Then in the late summer and fall, the group will be doing the Low Carbon Diet class (to reduce you carbon footprint).

And stay tuned for another screening of Transition 2.0. Watch the Transition calendar, or better yet, sign up for the Transition Palo Alto Yahoo group (


Global Spirits Savor Russian Ridge

The first Global Spirits hike, sponsored by Globalicious and Transition Palo Alto, was held 4/22 at Russian Ridge.


The hike featured magnificent views, some “tree yoga,” and even a reptilian friend.


A grand time was had by all! The next hike will be at Hidden Villa May 12. Global Spirits hikes are for people who want to share love for the world, its diverse people, and the outdoors. For more information, see the May calendar of events or contact Mary Jane Marcus (


Transitioners Connect!

Transition is all  about local resilience. That’s why each Transition initiative is different,  adapting to the local environment, needs, and energy level. But cross  pollination is also important. With that end in mind, more than a dozen  Transitioners from around the Bay Area and beyond gathered at Victoria  Armigo’s house in Sunnyvale on March 17 for some great food, drink, and  conversation.
Folks came from  San Francisco, Mill Valley, Albany, San Jose, Palo Alto, Cupertino, Sunnyvale,  and Sebastopol to share stories about how everyone became involved in  Transition, the accomplishments and challenges in each local area, and ideas  for the future. Carolyne Stayton from Transition US shared her ideas for  connecting people around the country and providing support for people for their own communities.
If you’re interested in getting involved in the regional Transition activities, you can  learn more about participating in the monthly Northern California regional  conference call. To get on the list for future calls, contact Scott McKeown (
