April 2009 Event

Presented by: Carla Kimball, M.A., M.B.A., founder of RiverWays Enterprises.

Nothing is more important in any team effort than our ability to speak to each other with presence and authenticity. We must listen and speak from our still center even as complex events swirl around us. From her work as a speaking presence coach, helping people to develop an authentic presence when they speak, and also from her experience on sabbatical last year in Greece living in a yurt for 2 months, Carla Kimball has identified the ability to slow down as the one key ingredient to wellbeing, presence and living more sustainably. In this experiential presentation, you’ll learn and practice the very fundamentals of speaking and listening with presence.

(Doors open at 6:00 p.m. with cash bar and social hour)

Tickets: $10

Wild and Scenic Film Festival poster
Download the Film Festival poster.

SWEP-MA would like to make our members aware of this upcoming event being hosted by the Organization for the Assabet River

Ten films, ranging from 1 -30 minutes will be shown. The line up includes:

The Last Descent: Join a group of world class whitewater kayakers to some of the world's most amazing rivers...descending them possibly for the last time. The Marsyangdi River of Nepal, the Brahmaputra River in India, and the White Nile River in Uganda are all threatened or are in the process of being destroyed by large scale hydroelectric projects. The film closes in California with the Tuolumne River and the growing movement to restore Hetch Hetchy Valley in Yosemite National Park. http://www.thelastdescent.com/

Burning the Future: Coal in America: Confronted by an emerging coal-based US energy policy, activists in West Virginia watch the nation praise coal without regard to the devastation caused by its extraction. Faced with toxic ground water, the obliteration of 1.4 million acres of mountains, and a government that appeases industry, our heroes demonstrate a strength of purpose and character in their improbable fight to arouse the nation’s help in protecting their mountains, saving their families, and preserving their way of life. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kQPYKD4WGew

Homegrown Revolution: In the midst of a densely urban setting in downtown Pasadena, radical change is taking root. For over twenty years, the Dervaes family have transformed their home into an urban homestead. As a family for this new paradigm, they harvest nearly 3 tons of organic food from their 1/10 acre garden while incorporating many back-to-basics practices, as well as solar energy and biodiesel. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oxORRJRWKH8

Goldfish: Two girls. One Mission. A lot of fish. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MSgUmSfEiH8

Renewal: In communities across America, people are rolling up their sleeves in practical and far-reaching ways. Offering a profound message of hope, this film shows people driven by their spiritual and religious convictions, being called to re-examine what it means to be human and how we live on this planet. The film presents eight individual stories of Americans around the nation in different faith traditions, who are working to become better stewards of the environment. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SwPoQ4kJrtQ

Papa Tortuga: Fernando shows that one person CAN make a difference. His efforts in Tecolutla, Vera Cruz, Mexico, have helped to save the endangered Lora Sea Turtles from extinction. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1FOdQdHZ9EE
