    Earth Day Special "Time to Awaken" with Karen Tate

    in Environment

    Yes, awakening we are!  The Sleeping Giantess, the collective conscious of humanity, is standing and we can hear Her Sacred Roar to protect Mother Earth, the people and the species on the planet! From the global protests against the TPP trade deal, to the fights to label GMOs in our food, to considering veganism a new mythology or spirituality for the 21st century, to choosing Democratic Socialism over establishment politics, all with a special emphasis on how this affects women. Yes, the warriors for Mother Earth and Her children are on the rise. Is it time to reconcile your spirituality and olitics and get onboard?

    Tonight I invite you to this special Earth Day presentation to share with you a talk I gave last week to the Museum of Woman and Goddess Temple of Orange County, which was actually part of a program I'm involved with at Riane Eisler's Center for Partnership Studies on caring economics.  Sit back. Get coomfortable. Tune in.  Thank you!

  • Food for Thought: "Lack of Journalistic Integrity is Domination" w/Karen Tate

    in Spirituality

    Special Show Tonight...Food for Thought: Series

    "How the Lack of Journalistic Integrity is Domination"

    Recently I've been enrolled in classes sponsored by Riane Eisler's Center for Partnership Studies and we've been learning about domination vs partnership structures of society.   We learn that there are ways to be in partnership with your self, your intimate others, your community, the world and within a spirituality.  I connect the dots between partnership as a value within Goddess spirituality.   Likewise, we learn to recognize domination, exploitation, oppression; all hallmarks of patriarchy and today's predator capitalism.  Tonight the domination I'd like to crack open and examine involves the corporate-owned media and the damage it's doing to our society.

    Maybe you've been watching how the ratings and money driven media has been dominating the conversation, interfering with democracy, controlling the minds of the masses.  Here is a presentation I made as part of my class on the Power of Partnership, discussing the lack of journalistic integrity as just one form of domination and the importance of being aware.

    Susan Donovan on women's fiction LIVE for Women Writers Month on AOTA

    in Books

    Women's fiction author Susan Donovan stops by for a conversation with Authors on the Air host Pam Stack.  We are celebrating Women Writers Month with Susan.  Here is a little about her:

    When my youngest started kindergarten, I decided to try my hand at fiction writing. My goal was to make a living selling my novels, so I began a process of elimination to decide exactly what kind of popular fiction I wanted write. When I discovered that romance would allow me to tell a variety of stories in a variety of settings – as long as the story revolved around a committed love relationship headed toward a happy ending – that’s the genre I chose. Since my first book was published in 2002, I’ve written seventeen novels and six novellas. As we all know, life is not as neatly plotted as a romance novel, and I have had to push through some extremely difficult times.  These days my life is calm and peaceful. I have moved to a small town (what’s with the small towns?!)in New Mexico, where I am surrounded by sunshine and mountains and wildlife. It is a perfect setting for letting my imagination run wild, and who knows where my writing will be headed next? I believe the possibilities are limitless. My kids are grown and are out there pursuing their own dreams. I am very proud of both of them, and if there’s anything I’ve taught them I hope it’s this: you can do anything you set your mind to.
