The Climate Action Team at First Congregational Church of Berkeley (FCCB:  2345 Channing Way, Berkeley) will be showing the documentary film, "What a Way to Go: Life at the End of Empire" at 7 pm on March 8.  The threat of nuclear annihilation first brought the very real thought that humans could destroy the planet.  While nuclear weapons are still a very real threat, we now face planetary crisis brought to us by climate change and resource depletion. 
 What a Way to Go looks at the current global situation and asks the most important questions of all:
·         How did we get here?
·         Why do we keep destroying the planet?
·         What do we truly want?
·         Can we find a vision that will empower us to do what is
necessary to survive, and even thrive, in the coming decades?
Join us for this powerful film followed by a short discussion.

Thursday, March 13th: Art Opening with Monica Lundy at the Polk Street Gallery
Good Vibrations is proud to present Monica Lundy in our Polk Street Gallery. Join the artist and friends for a special reception of the artist’s figure paintings. Monica explains: “The body is the source of human experience. My objective is to explore my relationship to and interpretation of the body. Inspired by the topography of the body, I "sculpt" thick oil paint with palette knives according to how I perceive volume and form. Working with the palette knife also allows decisive mixing and application of subtle variations in paint color. Analyzing and reconstructing colors and the movement of skin intrigue me.”
