My story: David Cassani: 1956-


In 2010, I followed an unexpected feeling  to travel another route to the coast. Through another series of unexpected events, I ended up attending Transition Town US -a weekend workshop regarding a grass roots movement happening around the world..  I felt to leave my job running facility operations at the Utah State Capitol. I  felt to leave all financial security and knew what I was given was more important than money. I let myself discover another way of life. . Many considered my self lost, when I knew what I had found was beyond the riches of this world, or better said a way to live in this world but not be directed by it.  Miracles small and large have come with letting go.. I discovered another way of life. A simple way - a path or road less taken..... and it has made all the difference. 


My family felt to go to Taiwan to teach others the language of Simple Living Centers in 2016. We officially felt to announce this worldwide movement  in April of 2017, a way to bless and help mothers teach their children another way of life. A way to reconnect with  neighbors.. Recently,myself, and  four women came together in unexpected ways  - to bring this to  Utah County.  How this unfolds starts from learning about our simple living centers within each of us. 


This is a way to become part of transitioning communities to another way of life. A transition that is coming  - or inevitable some say. This is a movement happening with people showing up as if prepared....a movement that begins within each of us... a movement I have been shown -where a small group of people  can-- working together --with integrity and teamwork - tip towns or communities to another way of life.  - another way to produce healthy living foods, another  health care system, another way to educate and work, and another economic system moving in different directions to our current system. For most of my career I have been involved with this type of transition.  Workshops are on line and will be announced with the link below.
