Evolver Spore: The Healing Journey
We live in a world that is ever more toxic, threatening even young people with cancers, antibiotic-resistant staph infections, new strains of influenza, and syndromes that are just emerging now. As people discover the problems with Western medicine in treating many conditions, this growing awareness is causing an explosion of interest in alternative and holistic therapies. With options ranging from the Alexander technique to acupuncture, Reiki to Rolfing, homeopathy to holotropic breathwork, individuals are taking their health into their own hands, and empowering themselves to learn and change. In this Spore, we’ll explore diverse alternative health methods and modalities, as well as how we can work together to implement healing in our own communities, and society at large. As part of this Spore, different local groups may want to explore the polarizing theories around the Swine Flu vaccine – the possibility that the threat of a pandemic is being used as a political expedient, and that mandatory vaccination programs may be met with resistance – and examine the Obama health plan, which may increase coverage to more people but has been eagerly supported by the pharmaceutical companies.

Horizons Perspectives on Psychedelics Horizons
This is an annual forum for learning about psychedelics, hosted by Judson Memorial Church in New York City. Its goal is to open a fresh dialogue about psychedelics and rethink their role in medicine, culture, history, spirituality and art. Psychedelics are a unique class of psychoactive drugs that have been used by humans for thousands of years. In the 1950s and early 1960s, academic research with psychedelics yielded important discoveries in psychology and neuroscience. Just a few years later, they entered popular culture across North America, Europe and the world. Questions about their safety, medical value, history and implications in politics and culture were unfortunately answered with numerous myths spread by both their users and the media. The millennial rave fever brought a similar wave of popularity and hysteria. Recently, a renaissance in psychedelic research and dialogue has taken shape. Horizons brings together the brightest minds and boldest voices of this movement to share their insights and dreams for the future. Horizons Perspectives on Psychedelics…2009 Speakers (alphabetical) Alicia Danforth, Earth Erowid co-created The Vaults of Erowid in 1996, Fire Erowid co-created The Vaults of Erowid, Bob Jesse, Andy Letcher, Valerie Mojeiko , William A. Richards, Steven Ross, M.D., Franz X. Vollenweider, M.D., Bob Wold.

The Mission of Art Weekend Workshop with Alex & Allyson Grey
The mission of the artist is to make the soul perceptible. In this workshop, we will explore the role of an artist’s intention and conscience, and how we of the postmodern age can draw on the creative process as a spiritual path. As sacred artists, we align our will with the creative force of the cosmos, becoming microcosms of universal creativity. Through the divine imagination, artists offer to the world the pain and beauty of their soul as a gift to open the eyes and heal the collective. Learn how art can be a form of worship and service, and how an artist can follow the inner calling to creatively serve our physically and spiritually depleted world. This workshop will include a mixture of visioning, art making, slide talks, meditation, movement, and discussion based on required and recommended reading prior to the class, including the books The Mission of Art, and Art psalms.

Remaking Eden: Ecological Design as Spiritual Practice • October 16-24 th, 2009
An Advanced Permaculture Design Course. Most humans alive now, have grown up in cultures divorced from nature. This fundamental separation prevents conventional agricultural design from incorporating whole, self-regenerating ecosystems that also meet human needs. During this course we will explore how we can create food-producing ecosystems that work like healthy natural systems, with minimal maintenance, and diverse yields . and, how the practice of ecological design reveals a healthy relationship to nature and to spirit, teaching us how to see and act, with respect and humility. Using Sivananda Ashram as our design client, participant teams will undertake various design projects leading toward a master plan for the ashram property. We will also participate in the ashram schedule, and relate our experiences with meditation and Yoga to our work as designers. Join us as we explore and weave together questions and answers from the inner and outer landscapes through intense, hands-on practice of ecological design. Open to graduates of certified permaculture design courses, and others by special request. $600 + accommodations.
