Julia Butterfly Hill
natural, functioning system involves symbiotic relationships
which honor sacred diversity through working together to promote
health, beauty, and sustainability. Religion, politics, science
or activism without the deep, heartfelt connection to the Sacred
is a dying effort, a dying
ecosystem of disharmony. My prayer for this experience is that
in the joining of our diverse perspectives, we will be able to
see and articulate what a healthy world and future look like as
well as the steps necessary to promote this positive, vibrant vision.
Equally important, we will leave with a renewed inspiration to
live our heart’s calling and our spirit’s passion.
Julia Butterfly Hill is a writer,
poet, and activist. Her historic 738-day tree-sit in “Luna” brought
international attention to the plight of the ancient forests
and environmental destruction.
She is a bestselling author and founder of the non-profit Circle
of Life, which promotes sustainability, restoration, and preservation
of all life.
Muir & Joan
Divine Feminine™ is a unique and holistic approach to
exploring and understanding the Dynamics of the Feminine essence,
and how it interplays with the Masculine. This restores us
to the divinity and harmony of our erotic nature. This sacred
feminine consciousness teaches us the more refined arts of
sexual love, and the healing and wholeness that awaits as we
reclaim our passion and inner authority as women. Thus the
essential link is birthed as we meet the Goddess within and
embrace and receive Her with trust and reverence. This is the
education men and women have been looking for to restore love
and pleasure in their lives.

Richard Gerber, M.D.
medicine is the science of diagnosing and treating illness
using energy and vibration in its many forms. These include
conventional electromagnetic energies such as electricity,
magnetism, and electromagnetic fields, as well as the subtle
energies of the life force. The different forms of vibrational
medical therapies cover a wide spectrum of healing modalities
including acupuncture, homeopathy, flower essences, therapeutic
touch, magnetic therapies, and pulsed electromagnetic fields.
Vibrational Medicine is an emerging paradigm that will likely
shape the way medicine and psychology is practiced in the future.
It is also the first science to explain how spirit interfaces
with molecular biology.

sacred culture to Tucson.

life expectancy in the United States is about 79 years of age.
However, average life expectancy is lowered significantly by
smoking, obesity, alcohol, inactivity and street drugs. If
one has optimal health habits, average life expectancy would
be 100. Using the SheLi TENS™, for DNA restoration at
54 to 78 billion cycles per second, the three most critical
chemical regulators of health can be optimized, reducing free
radicals, while optimizing DHEA and calcitonin. This approach
requires only 20 minutes daily and is totally safe.
The key to
cultivating the healing potential of the self to Self relationship
is the quality of our attention. To turn toward what Is right
in the here and now and meet it with the full power of awareness
is to arrive all at once at the wholeness that is, and always
has been, our essential self. This is also the essence of meditation
and prayer; by the very quality of our attention in the present
moment, we can become transparent to the Transcendent. It is
this profoundly empathetic and accepting relationship of Self
with self that ultimately sustains us.
