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.

215 Marielena Ferrer “War Through the Lens of the Tarot”

Back at it for another round of deep thoughts and wild talks with Mariaelena.

The second Monday of the month is inspired by the book, Espiritualidad y Politica, which was published 10 years ago, of which Mariaelena was a contributor. She is also the Executive Director of Humanamente — a diversity and inclusion consulting organization, Chair of the Athena Network New York — a psychosocial support network in the area of social services, health, and specifically in mental health, for immigrants experiencing psychological challenges related to the migratory process, a board member of the Family of Woodstock, a member of the Arts Mid-Hudson Advisory Board, and Kingston’s City Arts Commission.

March 14th is National Learn About Butterflies Day, and because Marielena has been working on an art installation involving 5000 butterflies, she shares why they are important to her, and a bit about her exhibit, opening May 6th, 2022 at the Dorsky Museum, closing May 8th.

Then we move right along to the biggest news in spirituality and politics today, the invasion of Ukraine. This includes a conversation about compassion inspired by this article. Marielena shares her assessment of the situation through the lens of the Tarot and then shares a meditation for all of us to practice on our own, to meditate on the key cards, the Emperor and the Hierophant, the majors players in what is unfolding at this moment.

Finally, we end the show with a little Moon love, and a share from Tanaaz about this week’s Full Moon Astrology.

#174 Memorial Day Musings with the Words of Marion Woodman

Hello and Happy Memorial Day! Today I spend some time honoring those who’ve served and set the stage for thinking of a better way of resolving conflict. First part is really stepping into the Chrysalis so that we can re-emerge as something new, a society with a greater balance between the feminine and the masculine, but first I offer some thoughts on the patriarchal nature of war and the military including an analysis of the language used that is unsurprisingly phallic in nature. In honor of the Chrysalis and the feminine, I read from Marion Woodman’s The Pregnant Virgin and also little snippets from Dancing in the Flames. I’d love to hear your thoughts about all of this!
