Seeding Gift Culture - Two-Day Seminar with Charles Eisenstein
This seminar will bring you clarity about your gifts, new confidence in their power, and an unconquerable determination to live them. Presented by StorySpiral, Souldish, and The NY Mythology Group. For the full event description, visit http://www.ascentofhumanity.com/Seeding-Gift-Culture-New-York.php
Writer and speaker Charles Eisenstein will lead a two-day seminar on the overarching theme of the Gift. This gathering is a transmission or an attunement to a new story of self and world: the self of interbeing, living in the spirit of the Gift. Cognitively, we will embed the crises converging upon us today within a vast metahistorical context; experientially, we will translate the heart’s knowing - that a more beautiful world is possible - into embodied, living belief. Something will crystalize within you, and never again will you doubt what you know or think that maybe it is you, and not the world, that has gone mad. With the power of word, attention, and presence, we are gathering to catalyze the next step of the revolution in human beingness. The time of loneliness on the path, the time of wondering if maybe we are crazy, the time of feeling alone in our intuitions against a world hostile to the Gift, is over.

Just when you thought dark playgrounds were creepy enough…This is the easiest way to find out if you taste good. Okay okay, jokes aside, this is a chance to get the fear in your bones, get your heart thumping and learn how to work with some wonderful strangers in an intense game of Zombie tag. Dress warmly and show up on time, because we are heading into Hecksher Playground to play in twilight, when its just hard to tell who is a zombie and who aint. The rules are simple: If a zombie touches your body with their face, you are a zombie. Zombies can only move with their knees touching, making them slow as hell, but be careful! You might be cornered and consumed. Find the water gun or the remedies to take out a few zombies in the head, or heal some friends, but just know that the humans always lose. Work together, fight together, die together… then feast together. This is a Gaming Event brought to you by Street Academy. Organizer: Jono Naito

NYC Dust & Illusions - A Burning Man History
Film Screening - A documentary. 30 years of Burning Man history. After sold out screenings on the West Coast the film is finally coming the East! Director Olivier Bonin will be present after the screening for a discussion with the audience about the relevance of Burning Man today, and the meaning of evolution. If you can invite over 200 people from NYC area to this event on FB, you can get 1 Free seat. Please contact me first: http://dustandillusions.com/contact. About the film: Dust & Illusions looks at 30 years of history of Burning Man all the way back to the late 1970s deep into the origins of the event. Through 21 interviewees the film presents the philosophies that fueled the creation of the festival, and its evolution from a small gathering of friends to the largest “counter-cultural” event in North America. It offers a new perspective of the meaning of the event, and questions whether its organizers are more concerned about making sure the show is ready when the gate opens or if they still truly engage in building a community and fostering art.

The Money Fix Film Screening and Filmmaker Q&A
Join us for a screening of the acclaimed feature-length documentary The Money Fix which exposes the assumptions behind the current money system and offers a look at existing alternatives. The screening will be followed by a panel and Q&A with director Alan Rosenblith, Jen Cohen of Seven Stones Leadership and The Global Sufficiency Network, and Jordan Schachter of Time Interchange New York (TINY). Alan and Jen will be joining us via Skype and Jordan will moderate the discussion. We hope you can join us as we surface and examine hidden assumptions about the function and use of money and learn practical tools for empowering our communities. Money is at the intersection of nearly every aspect of modern life. Most of us take the monetary system for granted, but it has a profound and largely misunderstood influence on our lives. The Money Fix is a feature-length documentary exploring our society’s relationship with the almighty dollar. The Money Fix examines economic patterning in both the human and the natural worlds, and through this lens we learn how we can empower ourselves by redesigning the lifeblood of the economy at the community level. The film documents three types of alternative money systems, all of which help solve economic problems for the communities in which they operate.

Presented by Evolver NYC, Souldish, and StorySpiral.
Here is a recent blog by Alan Rosenblith for Souldish in which he explores questions such as: What is money? Where does it come from? How does the design of our monetary system affect our lives? http://www.souldish.com/2009/10/19/the-money-fix-by-alan-rosenblith
Alan Rosenblith has a diverse professional background in music, permaculture, and currency design. After being certified in Permaculture at Santa Fe’s EcoVersity, Rosenblith pursued a career in filmmaking. His first film “Dreams of Green” detailed organic farming and was broadcast on New Mexico public television. More recently, Rosenblith has seen his filmmaking as one tool in a broader toolkit to promote human evolution. Rosenblith considers his primary role to be an agent for creating cultural mind shifts. He currently lives in Portland, Oregon. http://www.themoneyfix.org/
Jennifer Cohen is a founding partner of Seven Stones Leadership, a professional services firm advancing the practice of leadership, wisdom, courage and sufficiency. She leverages over 15 years of experience in coaching top managers to achieve outstanding results as well as being a coach’s coach. Seven Stones was created to fulfill on the supposition that meaningful effective leadership requires the exposure of assumptions that guide organizations. Once uncovered, organizations can create a new set of beliefs, ones which if embraced and enacted would powerfully shift the company toward the mindset of sufficiency. The concept of Sufficiency asserts that there are enough resources to sustain all and a global economy based on these principles would be a very different world in which to compete. http://sevenstonesleadership.com/
Jordan Schachter is the founder of TimeForCharity.com, an auction website that hosts auctions for charities and one of the founders of The Time Interchange Of New York, www.timeinterchange.com, where New Yorkers can trade goods and services for an alternative currency called Time Dollars or TINY’s. He has written and directed several feature films and television pilots as well as plays in New York. He meditates daily. http://timeinterchange.wordpress.com/
