A Guide for an Awakening Planet: A Joyous Journey into One Love

with Oasis founder Robert Roskind

By design, our planet is experiencing a quantum transformation. This book offers both the wisdom and the practical guidance needed to move from fear to love. Based on his personal 45-year spiritual journey and the stories and wisdom collected through his travels with various indigenous elders, including Hopi, Havasupai, Iroquois, Mayan, and Rasta Elders, Ros- kind has assembled the instructions on how to transform our lives from the mundane to the mystical.

While looking forward, this book also looks back to an age when societies were designed to bring out the best in their people while en- hancing their health and happiness, when people where taken care of from cradle to grave, leaders truly were the servants of the people, each person found their true calling and offered this to others, and life was sustainable for millennia. It was a time when everything was free and humans, like all other species, did not have to pay to live on the planet.

Robert Roskind is a writer, speaker and event organizer. His books include Rasta Heart: A Journey into One Love, Memoirs of an Ex-Hippie, In the Spirit of Marriage, and The Beauty Path: A Native American Journey into One Love. Along with his wife, Julia, he has organized over 170 free One Love Concerts and Events at schools, prisons, public venues, and Native American Reservations in the U.S., Guatemala and Jamaica. Every year his One Love Foundation hosts the Gathering of The Beauty Path: A Native American Journey into One Love.

CLIMATE DESTABILIZATION: OUR LONG SLOW EMERGENCY

VIDEO & DISCUSSION NIGHT ~ 2 nd Sunday of each month
PRACTICES AND ACTIONS TO CREATE RESILIENCE ~ 4 th Sunday of each month, 6:30-8:00pm

On the 2 nd Sunday of each month, 6:30-8:30pm, we show a different climate video and discuss a range of important issues and options to address them, both individually and collectively.

Our perspective is that the core ecological problem is not climate change, but rather it is overshoot, of which our climate destabilization is a symptom. We have overshot the ability, i.e.,“carrying capacity”, of the earth to support the population by using up resources faster than they can be replenished. In the process we’ve put an amount of CO2 into the atmosphere that has destabilized our climate.

“There can be no greater crime against humanity than the destruction of conditions that make human life possible…” Lawrence Torcello
We are in an unprecedented time of risk, uncertainty, and opportunity … and with some urgency we are called to greater participation to serve our Emerging Future.

Join us for this important discussion of how we move forward to create an Earth Community of justice, sustainability and peace! Bring your comments, questions and ideas. Free! Open to all!

For detailed information of the specific video that will be shown, see
https://betseydowning.com/upcoming-events/ . Information will be posted 5-6 days prior to the event.

CLIMATE DESTABILIZATION: OUR LONG SLOW EMERGENCY

The first 30 minutes focuses on our individual resilience and includes practices such as meditation, deep breathing, guided imagery, and/or gentle movement to calm and center ourselves, so that we function at our best.

Essential Oils Workshops with Irina Teixeira

Essential oils are natural compounds that are found in plants. They give plants, flowers and fruits their aromatic smell and have been used for a very wide range of emotional and physical wellness applications for thousands of years. If you have ever enjoyed the scent of a rose, you’ve experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils. These naturally occurring, volatile aromatic compounds are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. Essential oils provide plants with protection against environmental threats and play a role in plant pollination. In addition to their intrinsic benefits to plants and being beautifully fragrant to people, essential oils can be used for food preparation, beauty treatment, and health-care practices.

Essential oils are both exciting and promising when it comes to taking care of your own and your family’s health. Whether you’re applying essential oils topically, enjoying the aromatic benefits through diffusing, or taking essential oils internally, the positive effects of essential oils are boundless. Essential oils are a natural way to accomplish a healthy lifestyle because they work on the mind, body and spirit. Come and learn how use essential oils to unleash the potential of these natural remedies, take control of your health and lower your pharmacy bills.

I am a doTerra Health and Wellness Advocate. My role in the community is to teach workshops on empowering people to make healthy and natural decisions with respect to their health care choices.

Accessing Personal Power Through Forgiveness with Kenneth Anderson

My name is Kenneth Anderson and I am proposing an evening discussion entitled “Accessing Personal Power Through Forgiveness”. The outline for this discussion will start with a brief overview of my own personal journey leading up to the present mapping my own exploration and experimentation in facilitating a rapid resolution to deep seated issues and an empowerment of repressed healthy patterns of development.

The second phase of this discussion will focus on the three levels of forgiveness that can be used on a daily basis. These range from a broad based generalized type of forgiveness to types of forgiveness techniques that are more targeted toward specific trauma and the reclaiming of inhibited and repressed healthy patterns of growth and development.

My background qualifications for this topic are that I have been on a path of conscious living and expression for over forty-five years. I am experienced in the functional application of Depth Psychology, Transactional Analysis, 12 Step work, and have adhered to a pattern of growth and development that is insight and awareness based.
I have a musical website that can be used, it is; http://www.reverbnation.com/adamanderson6.
I will send you a picture a little later on for your post of this event.

Veronica DaVanzo LIVE! FREE!
Also! Hank & Brendan!

Veronica DaVanzo is a Chapel Hill-based rock musician. Her unique and intense brand of rock combines elements of classic rock ‘n’ roll, electronic beats, traditional instrumentation, experimentalism, and classical music. She cites diverse influences ranging from classical composers like Beethoven to modern metal bands like Epica. Her album, Solo of a Caged Bird, is set to release in the summer of 2018.

Since launching a social media presence in 2014, Veronica’s most notable achievements have been over 70 live performances, her first original release, “Fly” – Single (2017), and her current project, an original album entitled Solo of a Caged Bird, to be released summer of 2018. Veronica debuted her first original works at a Greensboro concert in June 2016 and released a demo EP featuring the song that would become her first commercial release. During 2017, she played countless open mics at venues around the Triangle while she wrote material for her album. Alongside her own projects, Veronica is acting as producer for several projects, including a single for the death metal band Wings of Steel and a classical piano compilation, My Passion (2017), by her father.

“A few things are and always will be extremely important to me in my music career: roots, experimentation, and authenticity. I strive to create music that acknowledges where I came from, but that is not afraid to take risks and be something completely novel,” says Veronica of her compositional style. “Music is my way of taking a deep breath and moving on; I can only hope that, in some small way, my songs connect me to my listeners and enable them to do the same.”
