298 Growing Women’s Wealth with Beth Bengtson

Today I welcome Beth Bengtson from Working for Women back to the show. She catches us up on what they’ve been up to in supporting their mission to invest capital (dollars and skills) from businesses into nonprofits supporting women who want to enter and stay in the workforce to become financially independent. They are co-hosting a screening of the film $AVVY.  The film dives deep into the complexities surrounding women and money, uncovering the hidden narratives that have influenced our perceptions for generations. Directed by visionary filmmaker Robin Hauser, “$AVVY” is a captivating journey through time, culture, and society, examining the intricate relationship between women and money. From historical accounts that have shaped financial narratives to the unspoken rules that govern our modern world, this film unearths it all.

Related to their upcoming film screening we spend some time talking about the hurdles in moving more wealth to women and why getting it into the hands of women is vital to an equitable and thriving local and global community. The screening is taking place from 5:15pm – 7:15pm* November 15th at Upstate Films, Starr Theater, 6415 Montgomery St, Rhinebeck, NY. *Film screening includes Q& A after Beth Bengtson of Working for Women and Beth Jones of Third Eye Associates, Ltd.

I fill up the remainder of the show talking about the energy of money and how and why to consider working with it in a spiritual way, channeling your inner mystic and calling upon your ancestors to help change your money story and your relationship to it.

Here are the articles I shared and the playlist referenced to get you in the mood for Samhain and a little money magic.

297 Amplifying Peace with Seaira, Shulamit, Kristin, Trinity and Tara

Last week I put out a call, and these women answered. Struck by a recent conversation I had about war vs. peace, I realized the misogyny in the idea of peace – as something naive, weak, emotional and decidedly feminine. So I wanted to double down on my wish for peace and 5 women showed up to help do just that, offering words, sound, meditation, breath, prayer, and love.

First is a meditative guided visualization from the wonderful Seaira O’Brien, multidimensional healer and word alchemist. She is followed by The Great Octave founder, Shulamit Elson who offered her signature Medisounds healing frequencies. Shulamit was on the show in November 2021 talking about grief and sound healing. Also returning to the show is Kristin Moshonas who brought us into our bodies, breath and hearts. She was on the show in May of this year talking about mental health and her work to support it. Trinity joined in studio with her guitar to set the tone for a song she wrote year’s ago about love and alchemy. Her sound healing work can be found here. Last but not least is my pal Tara Sanders who’s been a return guest several times. Today she guided us through a loving kindness practice sending prayers to ourselves and others. I asked her to mention the details about another event she is involved, HERSTORY: A symposium bringing together five film initiatives in the region that work to empower, celebrate and elevate female-identifying and non-binary folks in the film industry. HUDSY, Moonshot Initiative, Stockade Works, UPWIFT, and the Woodstock Film Festival will each present about their organizations, some of their past work, and the opportunities that each provides to engage with and encourage the continued expansion of diversity in the industry. This event is happening November 7th at the Rosendale Theatre.

I close the show with the Full Moon report, and mention another local happening, a screening of the film $AVVY at Upstate Films in Rhinebeck on Nov. 15th at 5:15pm: This film dives deep into the complexities surrounding women and money, uncovering the hidden narratives that have influenced our perceptions for generations. Directed by visionary filmmaker Robin Hauser, “$AVVY” is a captivating journey through time, culture, and society, examining the intricate relationship between women and money. From historical accounts that have shaped financial narratives to the unspoken rules that govern our modern world, this film unearths it all.

296 Phyllis Hjorth “A year in my Mother’s Life” 1924

This week’s show welcomes back Phyllis Hjorth, artist and bodyworker, who shares about her current exhibit, “A year in my Mother’s Life” 1924 currently on exhibit at Taste Buds Cafe in Red Hook with an opening reception this Friday, October 20th from 4-6pm. We get a glimpse into Phyllis’ mom, and more specifically, the side of her that was often forgotten after having her children. Phyllis shows and shares about a few paintings inspired by her mom’s college “yearbook,” and then we get a glimpse into Phyllis’ life, her study of interconnection, the time she spends at Kunzan Palchen Ling, a Tibetan Monastery in Red Hook, and how she got into bodywork. 

My pre-show chat with Warren talks about tips to happiness: confidence, trust the process – letting go, seek out healthy relationships, practice kindness, stay the course…

295 “The Sabbath” with Marielena Ferrer on Spirituality and Politics

This month during our monthly conversation about Spirituality and Politics, Marielena Ferrer and I delve into the idea of the Sabbath, a day of rest. Inspired by this New Yorker article, we talk about the history of the Sabbath, what it would mean if we all could enjoy a day of rest, the complexity and inequity in the concept of rest, how we relate to it personally, and what a universally accepted day of rest might do for community and global relations.

Let us know what you think!

Here’s your Moon report for this Saturday’s New Moon.
