no limit to how much water Nestle can take for their own use even it it has an 
adverse impact for the community and lowers the water table. This is part of a

Clint Curtis - Striking a Blow for Honest Elections  Clint is running for 
Congress in Florida's 24th District against Tom Feeney. He is the computer 
programmer who testified to Congress that he had been requested by Feeney, the 
incumbent congressman, to build a software program that could flip the votes in an 
electronic voting machine without detection. This "computer hack" would allow 
a person or political party to secretly control that machine, thereby deciding 
the winner, regardless of the actual votes cast. Please see

JAYA LAKSHMI Inspired by the deep devotional mood of Indian singing and 
music, Jaya Lakshmi began leading kirtan with harmonium and 12 string guitar and 
writing her own devotional songs over 12 years ago on the island of Hawaii, 
shortly after she received harinam initiation from Srila Govinda Maharaj. Her 
singing and kirtan leading has had a powerful effect amongst various communities 
in the islands of Hawaii, the West Coast, and Europe, always creating a deep 
sense of intimacy with divine. In addition to leading kirtan, she is the lead 
singer and songwriter for the band “One at Last,” a high energy tribal trance 
experience.  www.jayalakshmi.net

Imagine a nation where religious fervor runs hot, and faith rhetoric runs 
hotter. Where belief has replaced reason, and where Liberty and Justice play a 
broken second fiddle to an all powerful, omniscient and omnipresent 
military-industrial God complex. That's the nation Reverend C.B. De Love wants. And that's 
also the nation where shy civics teacher Angela Franklin finds herself. But 
in her struggle to stop the coming Theocracy will Angela go too far? In her 
zeal to destroy the opiate of the masses, will she make a religion out of her 
anti-religion, and join the ranks of the Gangsters for God? Or will she see the 
folly of blind faith in anything - even the Constitution - and return to 
Reason?

Event Price to be determined. No one turned away for lack of funds.
Contact: Gary Malkin  info@wisdomoftheworld.com or 415 461-1170

As we are all painfully aware, the tension is growing daily along the 
Lebanese/Israel border, increasing everyone's anxiety about the precarious states of 
balance throughout the Middle East.  We, as artists, must do what we can at 
this time to speak as effectively as possible for peace, hoping our voices will 
inspire citizens to demand peace from governments, hoping our politicians will 
listen to our voices of reason and passion.

Debating about this spiraling conflict can only go so far during times of 
such extreme divisiveness.  It is times such as these where we must acknowledge 
that there is no more eloquent  way to directly experience the peaceful 
collaboration and co-existence that is possible for human beings than to witness a 
demonstration of this through the universal language of music and the arts.

Therefore, I am deeply honored to be able to announce that we of Wisdom of 
the World Productions, in association with the generous support of Grace 
Cathedral (and other participating organizations yet to be announced)  are producing 
this concert for peace in the Middle East.  Grace Cathedral has generously 
offered to sponsor this event.

Please pass on this news to all your friends committed to taking a stand for 
peace! 

If you or someone you know can refer us to serious leads to PR opportunities 
(considering the short notice),
local peace organizations and networks that are dedicated to peace, or for 
donations to help make this concert possible,
please contact us at  info@wisdomoftheworld.com or 415 461 1170 - Gary Malkin

injustices here at home and on holding accountable the Bush Administration 
and Congress.

Tents will provide activist activities, trainings, workshops, and 
entertainment on a variety of themes united by the demand that we shift our resources

Mon. Sept. 18-Oct. 23  9:45am-1:15pm         Awakening the Heartist Within, 
the Mandala Process - Forest Knolls

6 Mondays, Beg. Sept 18 - Oct. 23

These “sacred circles” offer an opportunity to rest in the Heart and 
celebrate the presence of our communal resonance. Meditation, movement, ritual, 
singing and other sound practices, along with writing, will be the vehicles for 
embodying our personal and collective exploration.  When we rest in our Essence, 
spontaneous creative expression naturally arises effortlessly. No prior art 
making experience is necessary. The only requirement is an open heart! Themes 
will include relationships with self, other humans and nature. (CEUs Available 
for Nurses, MFt's, and LCSW's)*

Art & Soul Studio, Forest Knolls (near Spirit Rock Meditation Center
$255, $50 deposit required to hold your space. Entire amount due at the end 
of the first meeting.
RSVP Julia Weaver, MFT  415-455-5989  Mandalaweaver@aol.com
