    in Education

    We'll explore with Shelley Sacks how socially engaged artistic processes can help individuals and communities find new ways new ways of engaging with the world to create a more sustainable future. Plus, we'll find out more about two of her key projects -- University of the Trees, and Exchange Values.


    Shelley will lead a three-day "University of the Trees: U.S. Summer Institute 2014" from August 1 to 3, 2014, at the Jane Goodall Center at Western Connecticut State University in Danbury, Connecticut, USA.

Space is limited to a small cohort of co-learners.

She is the co-author of the recently released Atlas of the Poetic Continent: Pathways to Ecological Citizenship.

    ART Talk: A Conversation with Master Jeweler Dina Varano

    in Art

    Hello and welcome to ART Talk, a series of conversations with the artists and master craftsman that make our world a more beautiful place.  What inspires them to create?  What does it take to make it in the world of handmade?  Today I'm joined by artist, mother, small business owner, master craftsman, jeweler and nature lover Dina Varano.  A graduate of Rhode Island School of Design, Dina has had a presence in the Connecticut River Valley for nearly thirty years.  After spending several formative years living and studying in Italy, Dina settled into her studio, nestled deep in the woods surrounding her home and retail space in Chester, Connecticut.  At her shop, that fittingly carries her name, Dina displays her stunning collection of jewelry and artwork as well as a mindfully curated collection of the works from other artists.  She continues to draw inspiration from the natural beauty at her doorstep.  


    “I am inspired by nature. I study and explore through drawing in charcoal. My goal is to capture this essence and gesture in metal. I want to show the mark of my hand in each piece and achieve a rhythm of grace and movement.  My parents are dancers, at an early age I learned the grace of rhythm and movement which has become a formative influence in my work. I want my jewelry to inspire and welcome play with the wearer.” ~Dina Varano

    About  Mann :


    Thomas Mann, an icon of the American Craft Jewelry movement, a full-time practicing professional artist for over 40 years, describes himself as an artist working in the medium of jewelry and sculpture. He works with a variety of metals, thinking of them as painters think of their palettes — Each metal having its own color and luster. Inspired by parts from machines, electronic instruments, costume jewelry, and old postcards & photos, Mann’s recurring but always changing parts give his work its storytelling quality and theatricality. He calls this design vocabulary, which combines industrial aesthetics and materials with evocative themes and romantic imagery, "Techno-Romantic".


    Thomas Mann lives and works in New Orleans where he oversees a jewelry design and production studio, a sculpture studio, a gallery and most recently a teaching space.


    About the Business:
    Thomas Mann Design, Inc. employs 10 people to make and market the work designed by Thomas Mann & sold through various wholesale and retail opportunities.

    EFT Business Fear#14:How will I attract clients without having to "sell" myself?

    in Self Help

    Do people know you exist? Many new EFT Practitioners worry about how they’ll be perceived when they market their business – to the point of not advertising themselves at all. They worry they’ll lose integrity or appear pushy if they promote their work. What if attracting clients was simply down to being relational, conversational, and allowing potential clients to get to know you?


    Join Annabel and EFT & Matrix Reimprinting Student Practitioner, Lynn Demers, and tap along to clear these fears and limitations.


    Lynn Demers is a Coach, an NLP Practitioner a Sculptor of over 30 years. She was born with the gift of being highly sensitive which serves her well as both a Sculptor and a Coach.  For her the essence of a person and a work of art speak a common language. There is a resonance when a person is getting closer to describing their truth just as there is a resonance that guides the mallet and chisel as a sculpture comes to life.  She sees EFT as being similar to using a mallet and chisel to 'tap' away all that is unnecessary.  Lynn is in the process of writing a book titled "When Courage Whispers ~ The Way of the Compassionate Heart"


    http://www.coach.lynndemers.com


    Annabel Fisher started her EFT Practice on a shoestring. She used her experiences to establish a niche working with chronically ill clients, and created a 6-figure business after clearing many limiting beliefs. A Certified EFT and Matrix Reimprinting Practitioner and Trainer, she now focuses her attention on training and mentoring students to become masterful Certified EFT & MR Practitioners, and empowering them to create wildly successful EFT Practices.

    How to Survive Life & Death: Robert Kopecky - Near Death Experiences

    in Spirituality

    Robert Kopecky survived a traumatic childhood, traveled extensively as a young man, and lived a variety of lives as a ski bum, a factory welder, a monumental sculpture fabricator, an underground cartoonist; and finally as an award-winning illustrator, art director, and animation designer for The New York Times, Sports Illustrated, PBS Kids, and more.


    His journeys - from the remote South Pacific to the capitals of Europe to the deserts of Arizona and the canyons of New York City - were punctuated by three dramatic "Near Death Experiences." Interspersed through a life of professional successes and personal setbacks, and his own "dark nights of the soul," the three NDEs, and the subsequent need for answers, led him to years of study and meditation.


    Elements of Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, Gnostic Christianity, physics, philosophy and more, have contributed to his unique transpersonal realizations about life and death. All of which inspired the calling to write his direct, humorous transformational prose, and to joyfully pass along all the lessons he's learned - obviously the hard way.


    His popular spiritual/art blog, has been read by thousands. He and his wife, Sue Pike "The Animal Talker," divide their time between the Upper Delaware Valley in Pennsylvania, and Brooklyn, New York.
