For the Next 7 Generations with 13 Indigenous Grandmothers

The International Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers is an alliance formed by 13 wise women moved by their concern for our planet. This film, shot on location over four years in the Amazon rainforest, the mountains of Mexico and at a private meeting with the Dalai Lama, documents their unparalleled journey and their timeless wisdom about a world in crisis.

We, the International Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers, represent a global alliance of prayer, education and healing for our Mother Earth, all her inhabitants, all the children, and for the next seven generations to come. We are deeply concerned with the unprecedented destruction of our Mother Earth and the destruction of indigenous ways of life. We believe the teachings of our ancestors will light the way through an uncertain future. We look to further our vision through the realization of projects that protect our diverse cultures: lands, medicines, language and ceremonial ways of prayer and through projects that educate and nurture our children.

Godi Godar on the African Baal Phone
Relaxing! Peaceful! Mystical!

Go Conscious Earth was founded by Godi Godar Moteke Molanga, who grew up in the Bantomba tribe on Lac Tumba in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), then called Zaire.  Godi Godar is the grandson of Moteke Bihio, the Chief of Ikoko Bonginda, a village in the Lac Tumba Region of the DRC.

Godi is founder of Go Conscious Earth, a nonprofit dedicated to raising awareness about the devastation that logging and extraction of conflict minerals is causing in his home country of Democratic Republic of the Congo. Go Conscious Earth’s vision is to respect nature, preserve ancestral land, and protect the rainforest ecosystem by supporting sustainable and healthy lives for the people who live there. Together with Dilo Assistance (a Congolese NGO) and Bantomba tribal leaders, Go Conscious Earth is working to acquire the land rights to the Bantomba ancestral lands in the Lac Tumba region, in the heart of the Nsoli rainforest. They’ll hold the conservation agreement to these lands and partner with international NGOs to help preserve the environment and the way of life for the Bantomba and Pygmy people.  He is currently searching for a publisher for the memoir he is writing about his life and his ongoing efforts to preserve the Congolese rainforest.

HEALING AND RELEASING THE PAST with Kezia Renee Lechner

The holiday season, whether it was wonderful or challenging, often evokes and brings up our past. As we move into this new year, and this new time of change upon the planet, many of us are feeling a desire to make peace with our past, Many of us are feeling a longing to release old patterns and old ways of being, so that we may live our lives with more freedom, fulfillment and purpose.

I invite you to join me in this experiential hands on workshop.If the group is small I will provide individual mini healing sessions to all who attend. If the group is larger, I will work with two, three or four people to demonstrate how Intuitive Life Coaching and Reiki/ Energy Healing can be used to help heal and release the past.

Kezia Renee Lechner recently moved to this area from Philadelphia. She offers private sessions and hosts a monthly, sliding scale Reiki Healing Clinic in Chapel Hill. Formerly a professional artist, she was a member of a National Artist’s Coaching Community for over a decade. Drawn to the Healing Arts, she became a Reiki Master in 1999, explored a number of other healing modalities and soon after established her own practice. Over the years, as her sensitivity to energy and her intuitive abilities grew, she began to combine Intuitive Life Coaching with Reiki/Energy Healing, a blend she finds highly powerful and effective in helping clients move forward in their lives.

Creating a Conscious Relationship  with Steve & Pamela Moore

in Steve and Pamela Moore for a fascinating evening that will change the way you look at your relationship. None of us went to “Relationship School” before selecting our partners. It is very easy to get lost in the moments of disconnection and recurring conflicts that never seem to get resolved. No one taught us what to do when our relationship gets uninspiring. Come to this dynamic presentation and learn where conflict really comes from, the brain science behind it, and how to deepen connection to your partner. This work is as much about enhancing an already great relationship as it is about repairing problems.

This talk is based in part on bestselling author and psychologist, Dr. Harville Hendrix’s work called Imago Relationship Therapy. He states “This is a revolutionary view of relationships: rather than leaving the relationship to find yourself, you find yourself through it.”

Steve & Pamela Moore are a real couple who love to share their expertise and their own relationship journey (bumps and all). Steve Moore, LCSW has been a psychotherapist for 30 years. He is a Certified Imago Relationship Therapist and his wife, Pamela is a Certified Imago Relationship Educator. Together they will present a one day couple’s seminar called “Creating a Conscious Relationship: The Experiential Seminar” on Saturday, March 11, 2017.

A Cosmic Look at the Trump Presidency
with Dan May and Robert Roskind

presDan May: My vision of what I want to talk about: Is there a way to be at peace and feel our power and joy during these times of political and social upheaval? Is there a way to look at the events in the news and in our lives with a sense of purpose and love? I think there is. Warning: The ideas may seem radical but if you are ready to have your ego rattled come and join us for another way of being present for life!

Robert Roskind: No matter who won the election, the result would bring out much anger, despair and frustration. However, to do the work we incarnated here to do, as soon as possible we have to go past these understandable feelings to the peace and clarity of our love, our compassion, our humanity..
It helps me to strive to remember that every great teacher of love showed by example that you cannot teach love coming from anger, judgement and blame. MLK, Jr., Gandhi, Mandela, Tutu, Mohammed Ali, the Dalai Lama, Jesus, Buddha, and others understood that you can passionately stand up to misguided power but to create the transformation that is truly needed you must not do so with hate and anger. Righteous indignation, yes, but personal anger towards misguided brothers and sisters, no.

MLK, Jr, once referred to a death threat from “some of my sick white brothers.” In these six words, he revealed great truths. It was “some” not all, they were “sick” not evil and they were his “brothers” not his enemies.

In transforming this much-suffering planet, I feel guided to do the same – go past my anger into my love and – as best I can – complete the one/seven billionth of the sacred task I was assigned and I volunteered to do.
