Quotations of the Week
There are unknown forces within Nature; when we give ourselves wholly to her, 
without reserve, she leads them to us; she shows us those forms which our 
watching eyes do not see, which our intelligence does not understand or suspect. 
- Auguste Rodin 

Links of the Week

Evolving with EarthDance & the Butterfly

Author of Conscious Evolution Barbara Marx Hubbard reckons that creative 
people all over the planet are like imaginal cells of the caterpillar. Only by 
linking up and forming networks do they make the quantum leap to transformation. 
"The breakdown of the caterpillars old system is essential for the 
breakthrough of the new butterfly...When the butterfly emerges, it doesn't deny the 
caterpillar - it is the caterpillar evolved." We gratefully acknowledge the Earth's 
new electronic nervous system, which allows us to grapple with the global 
scope of our problems. Even more encouraging are the social networks of people 
beginning to realize the potential of our collective consciousness.

EarthDance is one global network making the most of these new evolutionary 
capabilities. Chris Deckker started EarthDance in 1996 with a straightforward 
mission. Bring people together to dancer and celebrate for peace, Synchronize 
these events all over the world. And invite indigenous elders from all cultures 
to tell their stories.

Thu Sep 27  7:30 pm        Save the Callippe Silverspot on San Bruno - 

Brisbane needs Bay Area help in saving the Callippe Silverspot Butterfly, 
recently added to the endangered species list.

The Brisbane Planning Commission is supposed to vote TONIGHT on accepting a 
cursory addendum to a twenty year old, seriously flawed EIR by Thomas Reid and 
Associates which got us the original Habitat Conservation Plan (that is now 
wrecking so much havoc around the country), rather than order a NEW 
Environmental Impact Report, in order to push through 71 ADDITIONAL (previously 
unapproved) single family houses right smack in the middle of the most sensitive 
Callippe habitat!

Please urge butterfly lovers to come, en masse, to the meeting.

illness. The principles of intention, tuning-in, motive and the philosophy of 
Afference and Efference are presented in a way that you can apply them to 
your relationships and daily life. Understanding the dynamic of afference and 
efference gives one a simple yet profound perspective on life, healing, 
personality and the negative dynamics experienced personally and globally. The class is 
50% lecture/discussion and 50% hands-on practice.

Sun. Oct 7  11am-12:30pm         Beach Impeach #4 w. Cindy Sheehan - Berkeley 

Cindy Sheehan has confirmed her attendance at this event. It will be her 
first public appearance since she announced her candidacy for the House of 
Representatives seat currently held by Nancy Pelosi. There will be no amplified 
sound, therefore, as was the case at the first three Beach Impeach events, there 
will be no speakers. Cindy has said she will wander among the crowd and greet as 
many people as she can.

Early in the morning, organizers will outline the message “IMPEACH!” on the 
park’s grass, with ropes and string, in lettering 120 feet tall (all lettering 
at past Beach Impeach events has been 100 feet tall). The message will 
stretch approx 500 feet across the park. By 11 a.m., approximately 1,500 
participants will arrive. Each should take an instructional flyer from one of the 
organizers, read it, and then choose a place to lie down inside the lettering.

At 12 pmsharp, photographers in at least two helicopters will arrive and 
capture images of the gathering, with the San Francisco skyline and the Bay’s 
bridges in the background (if fog situation allows). Within hours these photos 
will go worldwide.
