Sat. Jan. 6  10:30 am              Beach Impeach Aerial Photo Protest - SF

On Saturday, January 6, 2007 (just two days after the new US Congress 
convenes), 1,200 people will gather for an impeachment event in Nancy Pelosi’s back 
yard -- on Ocean Beach in San Francisco.

Early that morning, in 100-foot letters stretching 450 feet across the sand, 
volunteers from the Beach Impeach Project will outline the message:    I M P E 
A C H !

At 10:30 a.m., the 1,200 attendees will arrive and lay their bodies down 
inside the message’s lettering. At 11 o’clock a helicopter will arrive overhead 
and photographers will record the 1,200 bodies in the sand -- “IMPEACH!” -- 
with the San Francisco skyline and the Golden Gate Bridge in the background.

News editors will have compelling photos for the next morning’s Sunday 
papers; the nation and world will have convincing evidence of how badly the American 
people (even Ms. Pelosi’s own constituency) want their leaders held 
accountable for the Iraq disaster; and the impeachment movement will have powerful 
visuals to go with the words and chatter swirling in the air for months and months 
now.

To participate, please take 60 seconds to register yourself and your friends 
at www.volunteerforchange.com

-- hit "View the event calendar"

Sat. Jan. 6  5pm-12am     **Butterfly Gathering, Potluck & Benefit Concert - 
Oakland

A Butterfly Gathering to build energy and momentum for all of us in the peace 
movement during 2007.  For those of you who pay attention to dates and 
symbolism, January 6th is the Epiphany. We'll share our stories with author Norie 
Huddle who will pass along additional ideas and stories that are useful for 
organizing and sharing the Good News. This will be followed by a potluck supper 
and Celebration Party, with music and dancing until midnight.  *For the potluck, 
use the "Cosmic Organizing Principle": bring something you love, so there 
will be at least one thing there that you love.

Norie's book "Butterfly" is now recognized as one of the major models for 
global transformation. When Deepak Chopra's Alliance for New Humanity held the 
Power of Oneness Conference in Puerto Rico in December, 2005, Chopra used the 
imaginal cell concept from her book in their promo.  It was also used by Barbara 
Marx Hubbard as the theme to "Conscious Evolution" and by Elisabeth Sahtouris 
in her work. The Institute of Noetic Science conducted a two year research 
study from 1998-2000 on patterns of transformation based on people's real-life 
personal stories. Their report was entitled "What the Butterfly Knows" and used 
Norie's model in a sidebar called "Wired for Wings."  
You can view that article at  
www.noetic.org/publications/review/issue52/r52_Thompson.html

Norie is looking forward to meeting you and learning more about you – and 
about "who we all are together." She believes that we're reaching a “Good News" 
level of clumping and clustering.  Her hope is that by coming together more 
closely and in some new and wonderful ways, "we'll be able to take a great leap 
together into a whole new acceleration of transformational activity and 
evolution.” We both invite you to join us in making this happen.

A number of very talented musicians and artists will be sharing their music 
and art with us including: Fontains M.U.S.E., Land of the Blind, Human and the 
Human Revolution, MamaCoatl, Laramie Crocker & Wendi Olsen, Papadave 
'Whitehorse' & Marey Bird, Singing Bear, the art of Lindy Kehoe and others.

5 - 7 pm            Meeting  $10 donation.  No one turned away for lack of 
funds.   Please be there on time.
7 - 8 pm            Potluck*  Free with dish, $10 without dish.
8:30 - midnight  Concert  $10-20

Join authors Norie Huddel & Anodea Judith, Lion Goodman and  Alan Moore for 
an all-day workshop focusing on the questions:
  -- Where we are now in the Transformational Process?
  -- What are the leverage points for accelerating the Transformation?
  -- How can we support each other and make the Transformation more 
enjoyable? Norie will share a number of tools for transformation that she has been 
experimenting with over the past 25 years. Norie's book "Butterfly" is now 
recognized as one of the major models for global transformation. 

Home of Lion Goodman & Anodea Judith in San Rafael
$100 ncludes lunch & snacks.
(Followed by an optional potluck, so please ring a delicious dish to share if

PLEASE NOTE:  This workshop is limited to a maximum of 25 participants.  
You must register in advance by contacting Lion Goodman, 415.472.6500, or via 
email: lion@everydayawakening.com

We will seek to build a shared graphic and mental map of the territory, and 
share useful skills for personal and transpersonal transformation and 
organizing.  We will discuss the “Good News” that is already happening and how to 
share it more widely.  Norie and Lion will co-facilitate the meeting; Anodea 
Judith, author of  “Waking the Global Heart: Humanity’s Rite of Passage from the 
Love of Power to the Power of Love,”  will set the context with a dynamic 
presentation from her book which uses Norie's caterpillar-to-butterfly story. This 
will be a powerful gathering for talented activists, transformationalists, 
networkers, and big thinkers.  Participants who would like to share skills with 
the group are warmly invited to do so -- contact Lion in advance to schedule 
time on the agenda.  This event may be videotaped.

The workshop is likely to include a group art project and time for 
entertainment as well, so bring art supplies (especially images for a group collage on 
Transformation) and musical instruments and songs to share.  A “for sale” 
table will be available to sell your books, CDs, crafts, etc.

global transformation. When Deepak Chopra's Alliance for New Humanity held the
