Julia Butterfly Hill

Every 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.

Caroline Muir & Joan Heartfield, Ph.D.

The 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.

Lewis Mehl-Madrona, M.D., Ph.D.; Melanie Grimes, R.S.Hom (NA), C.C.H.; Ken "Bear Hawk" Cohen

Join us for an exciting evening of discussion with three acclaimed modern day healers as they offer the benefits & wisdom drawn from the ancient modalities they work in. Lewis Mehl-Madrona will reflect on how to restore the wisdom of our ancient pathways to the modern practice of medicine and psychology. He will discuss how modern medicine has largely overthrown indigenous origins & the essence of healing they provide. Melanie Grimes will speak about homeopathy, its origins and place in the history of medicine, its offering as a healing modality, and will address its difference to other healing modalities. Presented from traditional and modern perspectives, Kenneth Cohen will speak about how Native Americans understand the medical, psychological, social and spiritual dimensions of health and disease.
The panelists will each present an insightful and entertaining talk, followed by a joint discussion to answer your questions.

R.Carlos Nakai Quartet

Performing original tunes in contemporary ethnic world fusion, the RCNQ blends ancient timbres of indigenous flute, pan-global percussion, and the human voice with modern textures and urban rhythms perfect for both intimate listening, exuberant dancing, and trance-inducing grooves and inspirational melodies that continue to be appreciated by SRO audiences and audiophiles from coast to coast.
Mixing structured compositions with improvisation, the Quartet expresses, in a spacious harmony among large voices, the varied music and cultural heritages and working experiences of its members. The haunting tones of Nakai’s traditionally-tuned indigenous cedar flutes are joined by emotionally expressive saxophones, keyboard variations, rich bass grooves and the polyrhythmic pulse of world percussion. Hauntingly familiar yet startlingly fresh, the music of the R. Carlos Nakai Quartet will soothe your soul, fire your imagination, and move your feet.

Richard Gerber, M.D.

Vibrational 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.

Paul Horn with Christopher Hedge

Paul Horn’s story is an inspiring odyssey of world travel, musical creativity and spiritual transformation. With forty albums, Paul has recorded in sacred spaces around the world, including the Taj Mahal, Great Pyramid of Giza, Canyon de Chelly and the Dalai Lama’s Potala Palace in Tibet.

The concert captures a sonic landscape of Tibet’s exotic culture and spirituality. Paul performs with Christopher Hedge on guitar and keyboards. When Paul plays, the acoustics of the room become another instrument. Now this groundbreaking artist weaves natural sounds from Tibet in performance as he brings that sacred culture to Tucson.

Norm Shealy, M.D., Ph.D.

Average 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.

Richard Moss

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.
