World AIDS Day is an opportunity for you to learn the facts about HIV and put your knowledge into action. If you understand how HIV is transmitted, how it can be prevented, and the reality of living with HIV today - you can use this knowledge to take care of your own health and the health of others, and ensure you treat everyone living with HIV fairly, and with respect and understanding.  

You can also show your support for people living with HIV on World AIDS Day by wearing a red ribbon, the international symbol of HIV awareness.

The audience supplies the genre: it could be a post-apocalyptic drama, a western on the American prairie, a Tarantino heist story, or whatever else strikes their fancy. The Un-Scripted Theater Company uses that genre to improvise a full-length musical, as filtered through an absurd, complex, Victorian world, with quirky characters and sly narration that Dickens himself might have created.”

Journey of the Divine Feminine
Workshop Series for Women

Rudramandir, 830 Bancroft Way, Berkeley
$85 per workshop  
Women only
for more information or to register, please call 415-448-7043

“The time will come when it will be auspicious to be born into the body of a woman.  This is a ‘prophecy’ that came in novel I am working on called Daughter of Beautiful Promises.  Not long after, I was deeply moved by a Buddhist documentary where an aging nun was crying, wishing to be reborn as a man so she could practice and become enlightened.  I strongly believe that now is the time when it is auspicious to be born into the body of a woman.
Women are being called to come into their full power, to awaken the divine feminine qualities of love, compassion, forgiveness, patience and wisdom that the world so needs to come back into balance. The Dalai Lama, Mata Amritanandamayi and many other spiritual leaders and thinkers are calling women to guide the world into a new era by bringing forward the innate qualities of the divine feminine into ourselves, our communities and the world.  It is my deepest heart’s desire to answer this call and be a part of a positive change.
As women in this modern world, we are often struggling with day to day existence, trying to balance families, work, friendships, creative pursuits and spiritual practice, and yet there is this calling to offer.  Maybe answering the calling begins by not buying into what has been created for us.  I believe we need to find a place of stillness in the constant motion and noise to be able to deeply listen and hear the inner voice of guidance.  We need places of gathering women together for support, envisioning and creating.
We are blessed with having many amazing women teachers and leaders who have broken new ground, role models who can inspire us.  Yet all of us can participate in this change in small or large ways.  What is your vision?  As a woman, and perhaps as a mother, grandmother, a wife, an artist, a healer, a lover of life, what is it that you want most, for yourself, for others and for the world?   And how do you think we as women can walk the path?”

Lacy, who fused the real community work and journey of Jessica Jane Robinson, Miss Alameda, with comedy, Reality TV spoofs, romance, special effects, and real environmental disaster footage.

Screening Details:
Michaan Auction House: December 3, 5:45-7:00PM
Your VIP ticket includes the $10.50 movie ticket, a $10 donation to the foundations listed below, 3 personalized certificates from each organization, and a personalized autographed picture of Recycle Woman and Donald E. Lacy Jr.

Recycle Woman is a super hero whose alias is Miss Alameda. Recycle Woman made a promise to herself that she would do everything in her power to help save the planet and the people of the world. Her super powers help her accomplish this mission by giving her the ability to fly and show people images of the planet’s condition due to pollution and mistreatment, through the palm of her hand. She can even dump plastic gyre from the ocean onto people who refuse to listen. Her mission is to teach the community the power behind living sustainable lifestyles and taking responsibility for their everyday choices.

The film is sponsored by StopWaste.org, Northern California Recycling Association, Altamont Education Advisory Board, and Alameda County Industires. There are special guest appearances from Alameda's Mayor Marie Gilmore and the Alameda's Fire and Police Captains. With the support from Captain Charles Moore (who discovered the plastic gyre), the movie provides real life footage of plastic in the ocean from his movie, “Synthetic Sea.” The goal is to help create more awareness of the planets condition and empower people with the tools to start making simple sustainable changes in their daily lives to help save our home, planet Earth.”

This month join guest priestess Gladys Sofia Acosta (Sofia) as we look at the clash of Cosmovisions (beliefs, understandings about the nature of life) that occurred between the native peoples of the Americas and how the appearance of the pregnant Lady of Guadalupe in 1531 in Tepayac, Mexico, represents the blending of those Cosmovisions into the synthesis needed for Planetary Harmony. Through poetry, guided meditation and song we will connect these ideas to your personal journey. The Guadalupe you are. What your spirit is carrying in "La Cinta," that Spiritual pregnancy.”
