Wish of the Week
Butterfly car died.  Last month Musicians for Peace had an event each weekend.  First it was Power to the Peaceful with Michael Franti, then EarthDance, PeaceFest and finally EcoFest.  On the way back from EcoFest my car died and I am trying to raise $600 to get it out of the shop.  Please consider getting a copy of our Make Love Not War CD today. Details below.
Volunteer  opportunities.  We are looking for volunteers to work at our office in Vallejo or to work at home. These may also become staff postions when we get funded. 

Book of the Month - The Voice of the Butterfly
John Nichols's, the author of The Milagro Beanfield War, brings his vintage wit to the absurdities of modern life being challenged by an environmental  butterfly liberation movement . When Suicide City's new highway bypass threatens the home of an exquisitely obscure butterfly, aging '60s radical and continuing proponent of losing battles Charley McFarland rallies an off-the-rails band of misfits to help fight the powers that be.  Tthis time on behalf of the Rocky Mountain phistic copper butterfly. A dark comedy of ideals and unlikely heroes. 

McFarland's dysfunctional, yet oddly grace-filled Butterfly Coalition had me laughing out loud. It made me aware once again of what activists can accomplish, usually despite ourselves. As with Milagro, Nichols empowers us with a heady mix of politics and humor, a tonic needed in these times.  You can check it out and order a copy at www.sfheart.com/Butterfly_books_posters.html

Zen and The Art of the One Page Business Plan. 
Presenter- Jim Horan, President and Founder, The One Page Business Plan.

You want to be successfully self-employed. The choices of what you can do are unlimited. The question is what will you choose to do...who will you choose to serve...and what will make your business sustainable over time?

In this highly interactive session Jim Horan, author of the best-seller book, The One Page Business Plan will lead us through a personal discovery process that will help us define the work that reflects our inner essence. Participants will learn that the process of creating a business plan is a series of dialogs, starting first with themselves, and then expanding to dialog with their communities.

Attendees will also learn that what they leave out of their One Page Business Plan...may be more important than what they keep in the plan.

While many say it's uncool and inappropriate to talk about or define Zen...in this session we are going to talk extensively about Zen, business and you! Don't miss this session!

Mr. Horan speaks to audienes all across the United States, helping business owners and CEO's systematically make their businesses more profitable. Jim has the unique ability to take complex business situations and make them simple. His presentations are always lively with lots of audience interaction, they leave with pratical information and solutions  that they can implement immediately.

Thu. Oct. 28  8 pm           Rosa Remembers Palestine Screening - Berkeley

A  new documentary by local film-maker Wendy Campbell who will be in attendance.  Every American should see this!

Rosa is a Palestinian refugee whose family was one of hundreds of thousands of non-Jewish Palestinians who were forced to flee their homes, their businesses, their farms and their homeland in 1948 when they created the Jewish state of Israel. Rosa shares her vivid memories of that harrowing time which still haunt her to this day in an interview with local film-maker Wendy Campbell.  Americans rarely hear about the experiences that Palestinians suffered when Israel was created, and even today, Israel1s ethnic cleansing campaign funded with US tax dollars is rarely portrayed accurately in the pro-Israel US media.  Shocking recent footage of the Israeli army demolishing Palestinian homes with Caterpillar machinery paid for with US tax dollars is included, showing how the Israelis have never really stopped attacking  the Palestinians and stealing their land, with implicit support from the US government. (about 1 hour)

$10- $20  No one turned away for lack of funds
La Pena Cultural  Center, 3105 Shattuck Avenue, Berkeley   510-849-2568

Our time together will include filling our communal cauldron with our healing intentions and desires, calling our guiding spirits and animal powers from all the directions, drumming, rattling, singing, chanting, shamanic journeying, and crafting sacred ceremonial pieces. We are moved by the presence of these powerful spirits, hear and express their songs, music, and stories within and around us, and feel the transformational energy of their healing power.

ANSWER Film Series: "Incident at Oglala: the Leonard Peltier Story" with a update on the struggle to free Leonard Peltier

In 1974, two FBI agents were killed in a gun battle on the Pine Ridge reservation. Leonard Peltier, a leader of the American Indian Movement (AIM) was falsely convicted of the murders, although critical evidence proved his innocence. Peltier's arrest and trial were politically motivated shams. This exciting documentary reconstructs events surrounding the incident, highlighting the overwhelming FBI repression and atmosphere of government terror on the reservation. It also shows the viewer the brave efforts of American Indians like Peltier to organize and fight back. Free Leonard Peltier! 1992, 90 min.
