We would like for everyone to be able to be able to participate and share this sacred space time together so speak up! Also would anyone like to lead a workshop? Comment below :) -L

With 'Single-Stream' Recycling, Convenience Comes At A Cost

www.npr.org Many Americans now have access to a commingled recycling system, which lets users mix plastic, glass, paper and metal together in one bin. It's much easier, but not nearly as efficient.

The One Video That Can Change The World


anonhq.com What would happen if this video would be shown on TV, instead of ads? Watch it yourself and share it, if you think it can really make an impact:


What does changing the world for the better mean without taking a hard look at ourselves?

If we are to change anything from society for the better...

We need to look at ourselves too because we are not Insulated from society's influences: sexism, Transphobia, many many more. This mindset of Hatred, apathy, fear, and non consent are emotions and mind sets we as a community need to explore.

Inaction is an action. Silence is a deadly culprit.

Workshops are in the process of being made by Alfred and others.

Men please step up on researching gender and sexual orientation related issues, and please speak with Alfred and Su about hosting and leading a workshop on what you have learned from you're research.

This is my heart song being sung.

[11/08/14]   Last full moon gathering almost didn’t happen. I have to acknowledge a couple friends who said they would make it in spite of the weather who inspired me to continue hosting our gathering.

I arrived late to two friends already gathered. I was joyful to see them and thought to myself that this would be fun even it was just us three.

Eventually more friends showed up while we sat around our fire listening to music, discussing our new tie dye shirts, empathy and spirituality.

We started the evening with practice of Chi Gong to center ourselves and clear and focus our energy for the evening. While clearing our energy the moon cleared way through the clouds to join us in honoring her. After calling the direction we passed our talking stick and I prayed and gave thanks for the warm fire and the moonlight and for everyone that was able to be a part of this gathering.

Before breaking the spiritual energy built up over the course of the evening we lit incense and made a procession to visit our shrine to the ancestors. We each took turn remembering those that have passed before us in a candle lighting ceremony.

We rejoined at our fire but left quickly once more. We left to gather under the light of the full moon some earth or plants to offer to the fire. We rejoined for silent prayer and to let our fire burn our offering and carry our prayers to heavens.

Last full moon gathering almost didn’t happen but I am all the more thankful that it did.
