A BLANKET OF DUST, A Political Thriller Play with a Powerhouse Cast @ The Flea Theater
Jun 6 – Jun 30 all-day
A BLANKET OF DUST, A Political Thriller Play with a Powerhouse Cast @ The Flea Theater

A Blanket of Dust is a political thriller and a new addition to the Theater of Resistance. It is the story of Diana Crane, a modern day Antigone. The daughter of a US Senator whose husband has died in the World Trade Center, her subsequent ordeal in seeking justice for his murder ultimately drives her to the outer fringes of society. Struggling with facts that the government, the media, her family and her countrymen deny, she finally confronts them all with a harrowing act of sacrificial tragedy.

Film Screening of ‘Enemies of Peace – Preventing the Next War in the Middle East’ @ Martin Luther King Jr. Auditorium, Santa Monica Public Library

Film Screening of 'Enemies of Peace – Preventing the Next War in the Middle East' @ Martin Luther King Jr. Auditorium, Santa Monica Public Library

https://11daysca.eventbrite.com

This powerful film serves as a warning sign of the impending threat of escalating regional war in the Middle East. With the increasing number of U.S. military bases and direct U.S. military involvement in the region, it is clear that our governmental officials as well as the public are not sufficiently informed in regards to the dynamics of the conflicts in the region. Enemies of Peace shines a spotlight on the instigators, aggressors and funders of these catastrophic wars as well as their motives. Featuring some of the most renowned scholars, journalists and activists on the subject, Enemies of Peace offers insights and solutions not often expressed by the mainstream media and serves to empower activists in helping to bring the principles of peace, justice, cooperation and diplomacy back into politics, international relations and the collective consciousness.

Please share this event! Peace on!

From Peace Accelerators Description: It is our dream (and hopefully it will become your dream as well) that over the next decade we begin to celebrate the International Day of Peace (September 21st) more and more each year, until over time it becomes the first holiday that the entire world celebrates.

It is not religious and it is not about any made-up country — it is about all of us seeing the commonality between each other, realizing we’re on one Earth (and in many ways this place needs us to adapt to her quite quickly at this crucial point in history).

This Thursday we are holding a large beautiful inspiring event for the International Day of Peace. There will be community leaders, speakers, musicians, meditation, yoga, dj’s and much more.

This will be one evening you will not want to miss.

It will be the largest celebration for the International Day of Peace in NYC, the heartbeat city of our one planet.

Let’s show the world what we want.

A FREE Community Prayer Portal CALL ~ Listening to the Wisdom of the Earth with Jyoti ~ July 31st @ 5pm PST

Dear Community and Relatives,

We would like to invite you to our Center for Sacred Studies Prayer Portal call on July 31, 2019, 5 pm PST.

Margin will be hosting the Prayer Portal call this month with our Center for Sacred Studies Grandmother Elder Jyoti.  This will be the eighth of twelve calls that have been scheduled once a month on the last Wednesday of the month. These calls include different facilitators each time so that we can offer a diverse dialogue.

 

We are hoping to hold a focus of the Now!

What is happening and what can be our response?

How is this walk a prayer in motion for unity and peace?

What is the shadow that has been brought out in our collective for healing?

How can we stay fully present as we follow the guidance of prophecy that comes to guide us through these times?

Witness the many Divine channels that are intervening now to help us.

 

Our call this month is “Listening to the Wisdom of the Earth” – Please join us as Jyoti our Grandma Elder, Founding member of Kayumari with her husband Russell Park; one of the Founding members of the Center for Sacred Studies; Founder of the Fountain Project and Spiritual Grandma for our Global Community Village, shares with us on July 31st about her pilgrimage trip across the UK starting at the north shore and extended across the UK to the south shore, aligning and restoring the Michael and Mary lines. Along these lines, she attended the KIVA gathering and the Glastonbury Festival. She then went onto Peru, participating in meetings and ceremonies with elders of the Quechua Peoples. Her final stopping point was in Colombia in meetings and ceremony with the Mamos. She brings back messages and shares the collaborative actions that are following the direction of the Eagle/Condor Prophecy.

 

Jyoti writes:

‘Dear Relatives and Community,

I am traveling in a spiritual pilgrimage for almost 6 weeks which will take me across England and into Peru and Colombia. Shortly after I return, we will have our call. So much is challenging us in this turning time. Mother Earth has a clear focus on where she is taking us. Listen carefully to her messages. They may come in your dreams. In your experiences with Nature. Through your intuition and visions. Gather this as I travel, so that we can all share what we have received. And through that collaborative sharing, we will glimpse at what she is revealing.

Off on my pony!!!

Talk to you soon.’

Jyoti

We look forward to being on the call together!

Please read on to see how to join us!!

See you there!!!

With blessings of love and peace,

Jyoti, Darlene and the Staff of the Center for Sacred Studies

GRANDMOTHERS WISDOM: Reverence for All Creation – Book Launch

September 18, 2019

4:00 – 7:30  pm

Tibet House

22 West 15th Street

New York, NY  10011

 

Join the International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers, Dr. Henrietta Mann, Nena Thurman and other special guests for the book launch of“Grandmothers Wisdom: Reverence for All Creation”.

The Earth is our loving grandmother. For all time, Cheyenne storytellers, generation after generation, have repeated this belief with both their minds and their hearts. As they say, The Great One, Everywhere Spirit, created the universe and all life with power so vast it defies human imagination. Entirely with the force of thought, the four powerful spirit beings came into existence to witness creation and to eventually safeguard and shelter all life, especially human beings. Next came the water of life, the fire and light of the sun, the infinite sky air, and compassionate Earth. The Great One, Everywhere Spirit, contemplated creation and thought the Earth to be the most beautiful of all, then declared that the Earth be known as our grandmother.

Grandmother Earth is also, more commonly, referred to as Mother Earth. Indeed, she is first woman, first mother, first teacher, oldest mother, and oldest grandmother. The Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers whose magnificent lives are encapsulated in the work of this book represent Earth’s titanic spirit, power, beauty, and love. Individually and collectively, they are rooted in the Earth and carry her wisdom as a perpetual trust. They are committed to sustaining their Earth home and to educating and defending the hearts of all the world’s children.

Please join us in celebrating the manifestation of “Grandmothers Wisdom: Reverence for All Creation”, life and the continuation of this movement of peace, spiritual activism, honoring Mother Earth and future generations.

Seating is first-come, first-served.

Reception and book signing to follow. To join the signing line, we ask that you please purchase a copy of the book available at the event.

Join your hosts Adam Avin founder of Wuf Shanti and the Kids Association for Mindfulness in Education and Helen Maffini, researcher, co-author of Developing Children’s Emotional Intelligence and creator of Thriving Kids and MindBe Education and host of the Preschool Mindfulness Summit and the Mindfulness in Education Summit

Promoting Peace, Passion and Positivity
 Who is your host? 
 
Fifteen year old Adam Avin, created Wuf Shanti, to teach mindfulness techniques, so children can live in health and wellness, peace and positivity. Through videos, books, mobile app, music, fun, and games, children learn yoga, meditation, communication, inclusion, and positive thinking to help them stay physically fit, mentally less stressed, able to cope with emotions, and interact with kindness. Wuf Shanti has been honored to receive many awards, and Adam is honored to have been published in many national publications, interviewed many pioneers for his “Partners of Peace” series, founded the Kids Association for Mindfulness in Education, and to be co-founder and hosting the Mindful Kids Peace Summit. Adam is certified in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction for teens, Kidding Around Yoga, and the Emotion Code.
Visit me at www.wufshanti.com or like our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/wufshanti
Check out Adam’s TEDX talk at https://youtu.be/2r6TWTqr8FM about getting mindful SEL programs into all schools K-12, why mental health education is so important to stopping violence, and using our voice to make a positive difference in the world.
 Who is your host? 

Helen Maffini is the host of the 2018 Mindfulness in Education Summit, she is a doctoral researcher, author and educator. Helen is the creator of the MindBE preschool curriculum used in schools across Asia. She is co-author of the book Developing Children´s Emotional Intelligence and creator of the course Thriving Kids -A Path to Compassion, Caring and Confident Children!

************************************************************************************************

Welcome to the first international Mindful Kids Peace Summit. The idea for this summit came because Adam was concerned about the violence in the world, and he wanted to help kids learn to live in health and wellness, and peace and positivity, so that they can grow up to live healthier and happier lives.

The statistics for the number of tweens and teens anxiety, depression, anger, bullying, suicide, and homicide have risen greatly in the past few years, and some kids may think there is nothing they can do about it. But there is. Mindfulness tools can help kids to learn better ways to cope with emotions or deal with stress as they grow up, and hopefully they will be happier teenagers and more peaceful adults. These tools can also help you do better in school, and make a positive impact on the world as well.
At this summit, you will hear from pioneers in the industry, who will share with you different techniques you can use to navigate through and process emotions and stress. You will watch demonstrations, panels, and motivational speeches from celebrities and professional athletes, who will share with you their health and wellness routines, their charitable endeavors, foundations, and what they do to make a positive difference in the world. You will also see demonstrations that you can try at home, in school, and with your parents, teachers, and friends.
Topics that will be covered include anything in the mindfulness area, such as mindfulness, positive thinking, kindness, peace, yoga and mindful movement, breath work, communication, diversity, inclusion, gratitude, social emotional learning, and so much more. It is all so important, especially with everything going on in the world right now.
We must all come together in order to stop the violence and make a positive impact. Just as reading and math are mandatory parts of curriculum, we believe so too should mindfulness be incorporated into education. Our vision is to build momentum so that all schools across the country and internationally attend the Summit each year at the same time as part of the curriculum. Talking points and materials will be distributed to schools that attend, so that the teachers can plan discussions around the daily summit segments, and kids will be awarded service points for attending via an attendance certificate that we will provide by email to the school. Further details will be emailed to you during the summit on how to receive certificates.
We hope you will join us on this magnificent mindful journey of peace.
Thank you,
Adam and Helen

 

**********************************************************************************************

Mindfulness is such an important topic in today´s busy world. Giving teens the best opportunities to use their natural skills in mindfulness, to develop happiness, calm, focus and confidence is a gift we all hope to give.

This summit will show us the importance of mindfulness in a teenager’s life. It shows how having their own mindfulness practice can influence them and others’ emotional wellbeing.

“We hear Mother Earth’s call to simultaneously become more heart centered and action oriented.  Feeling Mother Earth’s sacredness in our hearts can be profound motivation to act on Her behalf.  Many actions are needed now, from calling legislators to attending rallies … art making, creative planning, spreading the word, writing letters to the editor … advocating for clean water, renewable energy … as well as social, racial, and economic justice issues that are inseparable from co-creating a sustainable, thriving world that works for all.  We believe these actions are most effective, and most beautiful, when they are inspired by and carried out with love and respect for this beautiful planet, all who reside here, and whatever divine energies are loving us and encouraging us through this Great Turning.  This feeling of connection, love, and inspiration is what we seek to create through Planet Heart’s Annual World Peace Earth Day.  Please join us, be inspired, keep your heart open, and channel that love into action. ”

The Ribbon 2020 – Tangible Hope for No Nuclear War – 75th Anniversary of the Nuclear Bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki @ Global
Aug 1 all-day

The Ribbon 2020 – Tangible Hope for No Nuclear War

The Ribbon was founded by Justine Merritt who had visited Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum in 1982. She was greatly affected by the tragedy caused by the Atomic Bomb. After arriving home, it came to her to create a Ribbon, and decided to have a Ribbon event on the 40th memorial anniversary of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

It was in the middle of the Cold War between The United States and The Soviet Union, and using nuclear weapons could happen again at a moments notice.

On August 4, 1985, in Washington, D.C., fifteen miles of Ribbons encircled the Pentagon and other important monuments: With the message of “What I cannot bear to think of as lost forever in a nuclear war”. The Atomic Bomb Dome in Hiroshima was also encircled.

The Ribbon International is now a Non Governmental Organization in Association with the United Nations. Since 1985, many Ribbons have been created around the world. People carry Ribbons and pray for Peace at many occasions such as; community memorial gatherings and marches related to nuclear, peace and environmental issues. Ribbons have been exhibited in various places as well.

Nowadays the world is closer to the tragedy of nuclear war or a nuclear accident more than ever before.

On August 1st 2020, the 75th Anniversary of the nuclear bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, The Ribbon International is planning to have a Ribbon event in New York City and in other cities around the world. Please join us, and pray for a world without nuclear weapons and never another nuclear tragedy. (If you cannot join, please pray with us wherever you are.)

______________________________________________________________________

How to make Ribbon
(Please also see our website: www.theribboninternational.org)

  • Cut a panel of sturdy cloth, double thickness, of any color.
  • Finished size: one meter by a half meter (or one yard by a half yard)
  • Sew 20cm (9 inch) pieces of ribbon to each corner so the panels may be easily tied together.
  • On this panel, sew, paint, write, embroider, weave, knit, tie-dye or use any other kind of ornaments to express what you most love about the world and want to protect from what is endangered on this earth.
  • If you wish, write your name and/or any message on the back of the panel.

______________________________________________________________________

BECOME A LOCAL CONTACT FOR THE RIBBON IN YOUR COMMUNITY – organizations, schools, places of worship, individuals, artists, teachers and many others have adopted the Ribbon project for such celebrated days as Earth Day, World Peace Week and United Nations/Global Citizenship Day to promote local awareness and action. Create Ribbons to display at local events, advertise in newspapers, organization newsletters, on radio and TV.

THE NEW RIBBON: TANGIBLE HOPE
THE UNITED NATIONS HAS DESIGNATED SEPTEMBER 21 THE INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PEACE
Honor this day of global cease fire
CREATE RIBBON EXHIBITS FOR PEACE

To help support the Ribbon project and keep it growing around the world please send tax exempt donations made out to – Peace Action Education Fund, 40 Witherspoon St., Princeton, NJ 08542, USA and direct it for The Ribbon International.

We invite you to join the Ribbon project, there is no fee. Just create and display a Ribbon, you have then symbolically joined with others world wide in creating and thinking in terms of care and protection of the earth and its inhabitants.

______________________________________________________________________

Pieces to Peace,

There will be no check-in table in Arlington in August
with an aging, greying teacher with a red Bic pen
waiting to grade assignments for more than ten miles of Ribbon.
All the pieces belong there:
all the symbols of a nation’s yearning for peace.

Who would want to judge the pieces?
Choose one as better than another?
Work of Art?
Work of heart?

Who would want to judge the pieces?
Lay aside a child’s rain-touched, felt tipped rainbow
for an artist’s gessoed work?

Who would want to say the eighth-grader’s acrylic basketball court
held more promise that the quilter’s careful stitches
holding her aching heart together after the evening’s late news?

Each one makes The Ribbon:
the pizza, poison ivy, pomegranate seeds
the ladybugs, mid-Hudson bridge,
poetry,
and creed;
each segment makes The Ribbon.

It is in the addition we find the sum:
for it is one yard
plus one yard
plus each yard of cloth
that we honor the diversity,
that we celebrate the unity.

Each piece makes The Ribbon;
each piece brings the piece.

Amen
