    in Motivation

    Welcome to Blog Talk Radio and the Voice of Change.  Rivka Kawano and I are coming together to host 4 radio programs on PEACEFUL PARENTING PRACTICES.  We are also hosting a 30 Day Parenting Challenge* for Parents, running from October 1 through October 30.


    THE ART OF LISTENING:  One practice we'll be focusing on for this first show is The ART of Listening. Listening to one's self, one's spouse/partner and one's children is crucial to establish a trusting relationship. Deep and profound listening does change lives...for the better. Tune in and hear some real life stories on how listening did change situations, bringing about peace, harmony and a deeper connection between people. 


    SURPRISE TOPIC: Each week we'll have a 2nd topic of discussion. This one will be a surprise!  But you can trust it will be about a Peaceful Parenting Practice that will add greatly to you family life. 


    Sharon Ann Wikoff is a teacher, consultant and writer specializing in the fields of parenting, communicating with young children, self-esteem and personal transformation.  She holds two teaching credentials and has been working with children and families for over 30 years.

    2014 Winners - Best Art Fairs in America!

    in Business

    ArtFairCalendar.com has just finished its 2nd annual "America's Best Art Fairs" survey and we announce the winners. This is the only national online survey of the country's juried art fairs and craft shows, designed to reward the festivals that create opportunities connecting artists and communities to celebrate the arts.


    We asked our mailing list of over 50,000 art fair patrons what was the best art fair in the country and had an amazing nationwide response. Nearly 90% of the respondents completed the lengthy 20 question survey and the answers were both expected and intriguing. 


    Not surprisingly: people love to attend art fairs and many travel long distances to do so. The overall conclusion is: Art is Alive and Well in America and attendance at the nation's shows is proof of that.


    Listen to find out what the Top 50 shows in the country are as voted on by the people who attend them and collect art. Find out which they have chosen as the best regional fairs, best urban fair, best small market show and the best cities for art fairs.


    We'll share the survey answers on:



    what makes a show "Best"
    why people say they attend an art fair
    how art fair goers find out about shows to attend
    why they don't attend shows they used to love
    how far they travel to art fairs
    their suggestions for show organizers


    Laura Berarducci from the Ann Arbor Convention & Visitors Bureau also reports on the economic impact of the Ann Arbor Art Fairs in that community. 


    The mission of ArtFairCalendar.com is to promote the unique American tradition of art fairs by showcasing the events where art collectors find hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind fine work for sale and encourage the interaction of client and creator.

    The Art of Life and Travel: An Art Filled Conversation with Carol Duchamp

    in Art

    Today we will have a lively conversaton with artist Carol DuChamp about the Art of Life and the Art of Trekking. She is fellow Arts and Healing artist and currently she is in our Art 4 All People exhibiton, MUSE: The Art of Transformation and Healing at the Institute for Art and Healing at Commonweal in Bolinas.  Listen in for the transformation.


    A local Bolinas resident, Carol Duchamp began her practice as a painter in 1985 under the watercolor mentorship of artist Jackie Kirk, and began exhibiting her paintings in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1993.

    Indeterminacy and chance play a role, as does the element of water. Carol paints on pre-soaked 300-lb Arches watercolor paper. Her process takes place in the unplanned moment. This is both the beauty and the challenge. If the spirit is clear at the time of painting, access to intuitive resources becomes easier. If the mind is cluttered, the level of concentration is diminished and the result put at risk. 

    Carol is passionate about the healing powers of creativity, and imagination as essential creative principle. She taught Healing Art Transition courses at UC Santa Cruz Extension and enjoys helping others nurture their inner artist. She studied Transformative Arts at JFKU in Berkeley. She is founder and director of Art Trek, a small company that orchestrates travel study art classes to exotic such as France, French Polynesia, Italy, the American Southwest and Bali & Java, Indonesia. Carol is also a writer whose novella Garlic and Roses is nearing completion.

She is the executive producer for Women Behind the Camera, BAM 6.6, American Chain Gang and Step Away From the Stone.
