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.

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.

Lisa Tarves, Metaphysician, author of the book, "Just Believe", Board Certified Holistic Health Practitioner and gifted angel intuitive, interviews experts in the area of metaphysics and spirituality each Sunday at 7 pm Eastern.
This week, Just Believe welcomes Robert Kopecky.
Born in 1956, and raised on the outskirts of San Diego, California, Robert Kopecky survived a traumatic childhood, traveled extensively as a young man, and lived a variety of lives as a ski bum, a martial artist, a factory welder, a monumental sculpture fabricator, an underground cartoonist; and finally as an award-winning illustrator, art director, and animation designer. His journeys – from the Mayan underground, to remote South Pacific islands, to the capitals of Europe, to the deserts of Arizona and the canyons of New York City – were punctuated by three dramatic, distinctly different "Near Death Experiences."
Eventually, the years of professional successes and personal setbacks delivered him to his own “dark night of the soul.” This led to ten years of study, meditation, and service, and the eventual transpersonal realization of what life (and death) can be that inspired him to start joyfully passing along the lessons he’d learned in a very hard way.
He and his wife divide their time between the Upper Delaware Valley in Pennsylvania, and Brooklyn, New York. He continues his art, designing animation for agencies, TV and internet; and writing spiritual essays and memoir for his blog, “Art, Faith, and the Koko Lion,” RobertKopecky.blogspot.com.

Dream Catchers – Disability Awareness Garden - Planting the Seeds of Hope LesPaul
One day I was driving down the road on a beautiful sunny day when like a flash out of the heavens, images just started blasting through my mind! I had to pull off of the road grab a notebook out of the back of my car and start writing it all down. It was beyond belief.
Out of nowhere, where did this come from I said aloud to myself as it appeared to me as a vision out of the blue. I pulled quickly of a very busy road stunned in disbelief and also awestruck by the beauty of what I had seen in the vision!
I suddenly heard in my mind say you want to build a Brain Injury Garden? I sat there thinking where did this come from as I pulled off of the highway onto the curb as I close my eyes and vividly saw a botanical garden of setting with flowers of multiple colors and styles, plants and shrubs of all different types and I mean gorgeous not your typical.
Tonight I want to challenge people with and without brain injuries and other disabilities to help me build this disability awareness Garden to show the beauty of the lives that live on and fight for freedom and dignity and in memory of those who have passed! Join me in a beautiful discussion as we sit down and plant the seeds of hope of awareness around the globe!!! Bring you gardening tools as we begin planting the hope for tomorrow today!!!

Randy Cooper has had many jobs and careers, ranging from lumberjack in the woods of the Pacific Northwest to serving as a special education teacher, from an operator at a Westinghouse plant to a developer and teacher of the Total Quality Management program at two of their facilities. As an artist, he credits his attention to detail to this latter experience at Westinghouse. Randy's mother was a master carver of birds and gunstocks, and one of his sisters is an accomplished painter, sculptor, and author. It wasn’t until Randy was nearly 50 that he discovered his own penchant for art. His first experience with art education was taking a 6-week course with sculptor Wren Prather-Stroud. He also attended a week-long course with Tuck Langland at the Scottsdale Artists' School. After working successfully in clays, artificial stone, and bronzes, Randy discovered wire mesh, which soon became his medium. He began creating intriguing and magical sculptures in wire mesh and has developed all of the techniques that he uses in making his “Shadow Sculptures” on his own. These are forms created in wire screen that cast lovely shadows on the wall when lit with a light source. Indeed, sometimes the shadows seem to show more detail than the original sculpture and instill a feeling of magic into the creation. These “Shadow Sculptures” have been sweeping the United States and the world for the past few years, highlighting many private collections throughout the world, and Randy Cooper has become a major force among America's contemporary artists. Randy works as a full-time sculptor and lives in New Mexico with his wife, Susan, a former environmental engineer who is now a writer and an artist who has worked primarily in pastels, oils, and acrylics.
