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. This is the first intensive training on University of the Trees to be held in the U.S., building on similar trainings Shelley has done in England, Germany and South Africa. Space is limited to a small cohort of co-learners.
Shelley Sacks works internationally in connective practices and social sculpture, exploring the relationship between imagination and transformation, the individual and community, and rethinking responsibility as an ability-to-respond. She leads a master’s and doctoral program in social sculpture at Oxford Brookes University, where she is Professor of Social Sculpture and Interdisciplinary Arts, and Director of the Social Sculpture Research Unit. She is the co-author of the recently released Atlas of the Poetic Continent: Pathways to Ecological Citizenship.

Barbara Yoshida is an adventurous traveler and photographer who fills her backpack with tent, sleeping bag, large format camera, film and tripod, then sets out to photograph natural forms, spiritual locations and women artists in countries from Sweden, throughout Europe to the Ukraine, Armenia, Israel, Morocco, The Gambia, Japan, and Mongolia. Camping with her family in northern Idaho was an early influence. She picked up a camera after twenty years as a painter and six years making sculpture, and spent several years doing printmaking, using photo processes. A half-dozen artist’s residencies for the National Park Service resulted in a series of color landscapes as well as a series of photogravure prints. Following ten years of photographing Neolithic standing stones in moonlight, her first book was produced:Moon Viewing: Megaliths by Moonlight, published by Marquand Books in 2014.

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.

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"
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.

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.

The success of Michele Brody’s work thrives on the interaction with new communities and environments. She received her BA from Sarah Lawrence College in 1989 and her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1994.

While living and working in France, Costa Rica, California, the Midwest, Germany, and her home of New York City, Brody’s art career has developed into a process of working in collaboration with each new community towards developing an interpretation of the sense of a place as an outsider looking in.She has had one person shows in the U.S. and internationally. Brody has also won distinguished awards and grants. During the spring of 2006 she completed three major permanent public art installations in New York and Texas. In 2007 she was commissioned to create a permanent lobby installation for the Jewish Community Center of Manhattan, and debuted the first interactive performance of Reflections in Tea at the 11th Annual D.U.M.B.O. Art Under the Bridge Festival, in Brooklyn, NY. In 2011 she was awarded Best 3-D Entry at the international competition Art Prize in Grand Rapids, MI.

Webster's English Dictionary defines a prostitute as, first, "… a woman who engages in sexual intercourse for money; whore; harlot"; second, "… a man who engages in sexual acts for money" (1996:1553). According to one scholar, "Cultic prostitution is a practice involving the female and at times the male devotees of fertility deities, who presumably dedicated their earnings to their deity." The "Sacred Marriage" rite was one of "the motives of the practice, particularly in Mesopotamia," where the king had intercourse with "a temple prostitute.When God Was a Woman sets out to explore this question, as well as to explore what Goddess-worshiping societies looked like. Using archaeological evidence, Stone argues that when much of humanity practiced the religion of the Goddess, the status of women was much higher than in male-deity worshiping Judeo-Christian societies. Accordingly, the rise of the Judeo-Christian religion, she argues, coincided with the decline of the the status of women in society.benevolent matriarchal society and Goddess-reverent traditions (including Ancient Egypt were attacked, undermined and ultimately destroyed almost completely, by the ancient tribes including Hebrews and later the early Christians.To do this they attempted to destroy any visible symbol of the sacred feminine- including artwork, sculpture, weavings and literature. The reason being that they wanted the Sacred Masculine to become the dominant power, and rule over women and Goddess energies.
