A Sunday morning gathering of progressive thinkers who explore, through presentations, issues that influence our daily lives and the lives of future generations. We hope these gatherings, through understanding and knowledge of the world around us, will ignite change for the common good and provide a sense of community.
Community activism, sustainable thought and unity consciousness are ingredients needed for true planetary stewardship.
A unified and empowered citizenry will assure our capacity to thrive during these times of cultural transition.
Dancer will also touch on green building, energy efficiency and an update on the potential for a renewable energy grid for Santa Fe…
The ability to harmonize with ourselves, each other and our environment, will provide the clarity and inspiration to make wise
choices in the years ahead.
Mr. Dancer co-authored the Santa Fe Building Codes and has spearheaded New Mexico State legislation for Home Owner Association regulation in regards to solar and water rights. He has also emerged as a national force for energy efficiency and sustainable building practices, speaking on Capitol Hill and the National Press Club representing the grassroots of the sustainability movement. His testimony at National Code hearings, along with his net-zero building models, brought a 2009 nomination for the U.S. Department of Energy's Jeffrey A. Johnson Award for Excellence in Building Energy Codes and Performance.
Unicopia's mission is to provide an ever expanding platform for the expression of conscious awareness. Each week, Unicopia airs "UNICOPIA GREEN RADIO" a one hour talk radio show designed to inform listeners of issues impacting our environment, the need for conscious participation in the realms of personal and planetary healing, and the specifics of green building, renewable energy, governmental policy, codes and regulations, innovative products and technologies. The show also serves as a forum for progressive State Legislators, environmental non-profit organizations, and American Indian tribal representatives wishing to shed light on the crucial issues during this time of global transition.
Ben Mittleman & Tania Vasallo are a husband & wife team living and working in Santa Fe, running SkyBat Studio. They will be presenting their Photo book: "A-6 Sin Prisas" (translation: Highway A-6 with no hurries). The photos cover one of the major highways in Spain that goes from Madrid to Galicia showcasing all the wonderful people, locations, traditions, etc that you can encounter if you decide to slow down instead of rushing to your destination. The project took 3 years to complete and they are pleased to share it with their Santa Fe community. Please come join us on a meditative visual journey on Sunday July 8th at Collected Works book store. There will be a slide show
presentaiona nd discussion. Vasallo works at The Santa Fe Workshops.
Local author, radio broadcaster, mediator, playwright, attorney and good friend Craig Barnes discusses his citizen's
action group WEAREPEOPLEHERE upcoming conference calling all people to come together to revive Democracy
and transform the current social and economic condition to one of a democratic society that respects and represents
the well being of all it's people and a return to Civility In Our Nation's Affairs.
JourneySantaFe offers a conversation with Michelle Victoria from the Nuke Free Now organization
on August 4th to 6th events planned in northern New Mexico to raise awareness of the true costs
and consequences of nuclear energy and nuclear weapons production, and the threat to the health of
our communities and all that we hold sacred.
The event is a joint effort of Occupy Santa Fe, Occupy New Mexico, NukeWatch, Pax Christi, Veterans for Peace-Santa Fe
and other organizations.
Together Nuke Free wants to catalyze universal disarmament and the closing down of nuclear power plants, to clean up the pollution
and contamination, and create life-affirming work, justice and peace!
Nuke Free Now believes that nuclear weapons and nuclear power are the ultimate forms of violence.
In response, Nuke Free is creating this global call to action and weekend of events in both the spirit and the practice of complete nonviolence.
- The mission of this group is to raise awareness of the true costs and consequences of nuclear weapons production, nuclear energy, & corporate profiteering. We are transforming the nuclear narrative and inspiring a life-affirming future.
