FINDING HOME, a workshop with Ferron

Published Gaby Gross - Thu, 12/10/2015 - 2:45pm

Utilizing the inherent wisdom of the Circle of Courage paradigm participants are invited to explore their relationship with the four root quadrants (belonging, mastery, independence and generosity). It's so easy to lose sight of our worthiness and our contribution to our chosen community. As we Talk Circle and collage (and snack) we bring out and polish our contribution, our currency as it were. We uncover, discover, and recover the steps that lead us to the understanding that love is a verb.

This workshop is limited to 16 women. Pre-registration is required. Please call 413-337-7663 to pre-register. Please leave a message and we will get back to you as soon as possible. A sliding scale fee of $50-$75 can be paid by cash or credit card at the time of pre-registration.

Published kenziecooke - Mon, 11/30/2015 - 2:35pm

This Fall, The Beehive Design Collective will hit the road with a visiting Bee from the Polinizaciones project in Abya Yala (South America), also sharing the experiences of the Ríos Vivos Movement in Colombia, is heading out on tour to the Pacific Coast of Turtle Island (North America) and then onto the Florida pensinsula (southeast US)!!!

This collaborative tour will share stories from Ríos Vivos Colombia, the social movement of dam impacted communities that struggle for the defense of their territories and rivers, and for an energy model by and for the people, and also the work of Polinizaciones, a Beehive grassroots process that collaborates with communities impacted by resource extraction in the use of arts, culture, and communications as strategies for land defense in Colombia, Ecuador, and Venezuela.

We will also be combining storytelling and presentations of our newest masterpiece MesoAmérica Resiste!, a multi media presentation about Polinizaciones and Ríos Vivos, and public interventions and actions on issues of environmental and social justice. We'll be travelling with giant art murals, a fully stocked distro of activist art, Ríos Vivos t-shirts and caps, handicrafts from territories in resistance, stories, songs, and experiences to share.

Screening of "Kumu Hina"

Published kenziecooke - Mon, 11/16/2015 - 3:49pm

KUMU HINA is a powerful film about the struggle to maintain Pacific Islander culture and values within the Westernized society of modern day Hawaiʻi. It is told through the lens of an extraordinary Native Hawaiian who is both a proud and confident māhū, or transgender woman, and an honored and respected kumu, or teacher, cultural practitioner, and community leader.

During a momentous year in her life in modern Honolulu, Hina Wong-Kalu, a native Hawaiian māhū, or transgender, teacher uses traditional culture to inspire a student to claim her place as leader of the school's all-male hula troupe. But despite her success as a teacher, Hina longs for love and a committed relationship. Will her marriage to a headstrong Tongan man fulfill her dreams? An incredible docu-drama that unfolds like a narrative film, KUMU HINA reveals a side of Hawai'i rarely seen on screen.

Screening of "Merchants of Doubt"

Published kenziecooke - Mon, 11/16/2015 - 3:45pm

Merchants of Doubt is a 2014 American documentary film directed by Robert Kenner (Food Inc.) that was "inspired by" the 2010 book of the same name by Naomi Oreskes and Erik M. Conway.[1][2][3][4] The film traces the use of public relations tactics that were originally developed by the tobacco industry to protect their business from research indicating health risks from smoking. The most prominent of these tactics is the cultivation of scientists and others who successfully cast doubt on the scientific results. Using a professional magician, the film explores the analogy between these tactics and the methods used by magicians to distract their audiences from observing how illusions are performed. For the tobacco industry, the tactics successfully delayed government regulation until long after the establishment of scientific consensus about the health risks from smoking. As its second example, the film describes how manufacturers of flame retardants worked to protect their sales after toxic effects of the retardants were discovered. The central concern of the film is the ongoing use of these tactics to forestall governmental action to regulate greenhouse gas emissions in response to the risk of global climate change.[5]
