I met Katy today who represents and works with Mayan Hands and UPAVIM Crafts while attending the Mission Presbytery meetings here in Austin, TX. Prebytery is a collection of leaders from all over the boundaries of the Mission Presbytery area within the structure of the USA Presbyterian Churches. Katy has agreed to share her "mission" and "passion" behind why she is involved in the fair trade markets/ministries and why it is so important for us all to become so involved in this process.
I'm excited for her to be a part of my show. Mark your calendars now!
Fair Trade Monday series is an attempt at educating the public about fair trade ministries/markets and how it intertwines with the causes to end global gender violence.

I met Chris Cloyd last year at the World of Hope Fair Trade Market at Hope Presbyterian Church in November 2012.
HOPE is a nonprofit corporation created to empower destitute families to lift themselves out of poverty and sickness. Though HOPE does much charity work, its primary goal is to promote justice for the oppressed by providing fair business markets where all workers can earn livable wages. HOPE markets Fair Trade products from all over the world in stores and traveling booths wherever we can, esp at churches. Each sale makes a significant impact for artisans, often just one Fair trade sale gives families more income that a week of hard labor! HOPE would love to come do a presentation and booth for your church or group. Contact Chris Cloyd for more info 512-550-9282 firstname.lastname@example.org

Beginning new moon Virgo, Rosh Codesh Elul, join me for 7 weeks of in-depth conversations with Xolah Locia . We will discuss my creation, the Prayergams and his teachings of Transorgasmic Sexuality both of which are focus on the benefits of transmuting orgasms and how the holy water of our sexual energy can deeply nourish the roots of our sacred tree.
We begin on Rosh Codesh Elul, the 12th month of the hebrew calendar (where prayers for forgiveness and mercy are gearing up the nation of Israel in preparation for the new year) and we will end on the first day of Sukkot, the holy holiday where we celebrate the remembrance of the pilgrimage to jerusalem.
Check out Esoteric Sexology and get a flavor for his genius behind Xolah Locia. And of course, if you feel inclined.... embrace my "role for humanity" as a Tantric Rabbi and creator of Prayergasm™.
I will address the 7 days of creation in the form of meditations I created in the model of Prayergasm while Xolah Locia dives us deeper into the mystery of the kabbalistic world within...
We are SO looking forward to sharing this journey with you all.
Divine Love & Blessings,
Melinda & Xolah
