Get Your Dance On an Evolver Salon

 

Get Your Dance On connects people through movement, music,
and world-changing ideas. We feature the very best local DJs, musicians, yoga
teachers, healers, artists, and performers, local sponsors provide high vibe
treats like raw chocolate, kombucha, turmeric elixirs, and fresh fruit, and YOU
bring the magic that makes GYDO beyond amazing.  November 13th we'll join forces with Evolver.net and Urban
Zen to take over YogaWorks Soho's gorgeous duplex space, complete with three
huge rooms, hardwood floors perfect for barefoot grooving, saunas, and showers
for when you're all danced out, and create an opportunity for NYC's finest
humans to revel in their collective awesomeness and have a freakin blast.  Dhundee will man the wheels of steel as
Brooklyn's Brian T Carter facilitates the beat in our live room to keep things
inspired, and the Didge Project will hold down the chill space with
didgeridoos, tabla, violin (the list goes on), and an acupuncturist on-site
doing community-style treatments. 
Funds raised will cover event costs (music, sound, artists, production),
and all funds raised above the cost of the event will be donated directly to
The Urban Zen Foundation (urbanzen.org), which creates, connects, and
collaborates to raise awareness and inspire change in the areas of well-being,
preserving cultures, and empowering children.

 

Taking place at YogaWorks Soho's stunning duplex space,
there will be three large rooms for barefoot grooving, mixing and
mingling.  Saunas and showers for
relaxing throughout the night. High-vibe treats of raw chocolate, Kombucha,
turmeric elixirs, and fresh fruit will be available. Dhundee will man the
wheels of steel as Brooklyn's Brian T Carter facilitates the beat in our live

Light & Shadow: Exploring Personal & Cultural
Transformation On the road with Charles Shaw & Michael Garfield A night of
engaging presentations & live music

 

Charles Shaw: "Charting the Spiritual and Political
Awakening of the Evolutionary Subculture, and Giving Voice to the Lives of the
Disenfranchised."  Reality
Sandwich contributor Charles Shaw will be discussing his book Exile Nation and
related topics like the drug war, the prison system, and shamanic medicines,
with a particular focus on the role of the Shadow in our own awakenings and
healings, and its role in this Evolutionary Subculture as a whole.   In addition, Charles will also be
taping interviews for the Unheard Voices Documentary Project, a video archive
of interviews with prisoners, ex-offenders, family members, and relevant experts
on the human consequences of our drug and criminal justice policies. Through
stories of perseverance, hope and healing, Unheard Voices will showcases the
cultural holocaust known as the War on Drugs.  Charles Shaw is the author of the critically-acclaimed,
Exile Nation: Drugs, Prisons, Politics & Spirituality and Director of the

Exile Nation

http://realitysand1.wpengine.com/exile_nation_drugs_prisons_politics_spirituality

 

Michael Garfield: "Sketches of an Emerging Human
Mythos: Evolution, Alchemy, Art, & Activism in an Age of
Transition"  Drawing on
sources from evolutionary theory to sacred geometry, from cosmology to jazz,
Michael playfully deconstructs the boundaries between self and other, the one
and the many to offer a rare perspective on the crisis and opportunity of our
age – an emerging worldview aware of the vast patterns in which humanity is
embedded, and how each of us is a crucial participant.   Additionally, Michael will play
his acoustic-electronic music as a performance of this emergent integrated
paradigm – a dynamic concert in which science and art, left and right
hemispheres, head and heart unite. 
Trained in evolutionary ecology only to become a performance painter,
essayist, and cyber-troubadour, integralist Michael Garfield is intent on
demonstrating how everything is equally art, science, and spiritual practice.
Writing extensively and expansively on the creative intersections of human
inquiry and creativity, his combination of independent research and cohesive
multimedia expression point the way toward an integrated exploration of time,
life, and mind: his work straddles communities, ignoring battle lines drawn
between transhumanism (H+ Magazine), integral philosophy (Integral Institute), technoshamanism
(Reality Sandwich), popular culture (D/Visible Magazine, Colorado Music Board),
and academia (University of Kansas, John F. Kennedy University).

Hoboken Studio Artists' Tour/Food Drive @ Hoboken Art Garden

 

Raindate for reception is Saturday 6-10pm.  Opening Reception:  We are happy to announce a weekend-long
Food Drive as part of the 4th and Jackson Art Garden's inaugural year participating
in the Hoboken Studio Artists' Tour. For those of you unfamiliar with the space,
it is a housing complex and adjacent lot in which the top floor has been turned
into an art gallery and the lot has been transformed into a viable space for
sculpture, installation, music, and foliage. This work is the brainchild of
Rolando Ramos, a man currently nominated for "Outstanding Scene
Contributor" in the Hoboken Music Awards.

following artists:  Upstairs

Outside – Jordan André De Liso (interactive recycled
sculpture)

Jordan is an aspiring Green Engineer with a BS in
Engineering from Tufts University. He feels strongly about reducing our impact
on the Earth and tries to use as many found or salvaged objects as possible in
his work.

As his birthday is later in November, he would like nothing
more as a present (albeit, a bit early) than to have as many people come out to
see some of his work and contribute to this great cause

A Biodanza Workshop-Dances of Love, Connection &
Playfulness

 

Biodanza literally means- The Dance of Life. It is a
transformational system of human development that uses: dance, emotions, music,
and group exercises to foster a deep sense of connection with ourselves and
others. The practice of Biodanza empowers us to move towards our full human
potential. There is also a major biochemical and neurological rebalancing that
takes place within the body all towards a sense of well being. For many people,
these changes progressively lead towards profound changes in their lives.  Take advantage of this rare opportunity
to exp Biodanza w/Myriam Sophia. It is rarely offered on the east coast. She
will be traveling all the way from Columbia, South America to facilitate this
fun, powerful & transformational dance workshop. It gets you in touch with
your inner child in such a fun and profound way.  No dance exp is necessary.  You can register for 1, 2 or all 3 days.

The Path of Deep Transformative Experience

 

A Talk by Kevin Sachs. 
Do you attend experiential workshops and ceremonies and have deep
experiences, yet wonder if you could do more to incorporate them into your
life? Do you return home feeling unsettled and “stirred up” and not know what
to do? Do you wish you could incorporate your experiences into one integrated
life path that uses them as a starting point for ongoing inner work and lasting
growth? Experiential workshops, breathwork, shamanic journeys and ceremonies,
vision quests, sweat lodges, trance dances, ecstatic chanting and intensive
yoga or meditation retreats all involve working in nonordinary states of
consciousness. However, by themselves, nonordinary states and experiences are
just the beginning of a complete and rewarding path. This talk will cover what
nonordinary states are, why they have the potential to move us toward healing
and wholeness, and how to work effectively with them. Topics will include Stan Grof's
maps of consciousness, transpersonal and mystical experiences, working with
difficult emotional material, shadow work, the importance of containment, set
and setting, and the need for adequate preparation and integration around the
experiences. I will discuss methods I use to prepare and integrate, including
Eugene Gendlin's Focusing. I will also cover the archetypes of initiation,
death and rebirth, and how understanding these overarching themes helps us to
work more effectively with powerful experiences.

All you need is a willingness to explore, share, open and sing. This practice
is deeply healing and rewarding on a physical, energetic, mental and spiritual
level.  Alokananda brings his deep
love of yoga, shamanism and the devotion of interfaith mysticism to his sharing
of Kirtan. “These sacred songs are a divine gift from our elders. They
transcend culture, religion and mental concepts bringing us into a deep
vibration of harmony, clarity, love and openness” ~Alokananda  ::: Open the Heart ~ Heal the Body ~

Tibetan Sound Healing workshop w/Charlie Gonzalez

sacred sounds that activate the healing potential of your natural mind.  By invoking the Five Warrior Syllables
you can use the medicine of sound to clear obstacles in your body, energy &
emotions, and release the boundless creativity & positive qualities that
are inherent within each of us.  In

bow…ls and utilize this ancient Sound Healing meditation to purify your body,

powerful meditation technique I have found so far to cut right through the
clutter of the mind and cultivate the state of clear light, which is the
essence of Dzogchen & Yoga **

Awakening Your True Voice

 

Sean McClelland, MMus, CAT.  Every person possesses a powerful, natural voice that
reveals who he or she truly is. Often, mental and physical tension, past
experiences and fears lead to inhibitions that restrict the natural flow of the
voice, resulting in a forced, unnatural sound and blocked energy centers. This
course creates a supportive environment in which self-consciousness will
dissolve and the natural voice will emerge. To encourage vocal growth and
development, a repertoire of exercises is given that will increase mental and
physical awareness, improve body alignment and stimulate natural, reflexive
breathing. We will also work on opening the channel for sound vibrations,
resonance and range. Group singing of folk songs and spirituals helps
participants to express themselves with sensitivity.  Note: No previous vocal background required.

A dancefloor opera in 15 vignettes.  What to wear: camping attire ; )
synopsis: bliss is hard to reach. Here’s the lowdown on how to get there in 15

hundreds of meals, parties, puddles and journeys; sign – we've built and
rebuilt many different "disorient" signs with programmable leds over
the years. We burned the biggest one. Current sign says "disoriten"
(for our tenth year).  Mylarv – every
year leo wraps his entire rv in mylar. This was one of the first disorient art

cosy; container – there are actually _three_ big shipping containers we keep
all our stuff in, two in nevada and one in la; shapeshifting – needs no
explanation; cuddlefish – big orange inflatable tentacle things we put on our

Medicine Wheel Ceremony & Thanksgiving Potluck Feast
With Walking Hawk

 

The Medicine Wheel is symbolic of the forever-evolving
Circle of Life, always bringing new truths and lessons into our awareness. Walking
Hawk, a Cherokee elder and heyoka medicine man, will explain Native American
medicine wheel teachings and how to use those lessons in our daily lives. Then,
as a group, we will have the opportunity to create a medicine wheel and
participate in ceremony. Creating a wheel is a very powerful and objective tool
for transformation. By revealing our connection to the many relationships in
our lives, we are able to see where our thinking and perspectives are keeping
us stuck. Afterwards, we will end the evening with a Thanksgiving potluck
celebration. Please bring: * A crystal or stone for the Medicine Wheel Ceremony
* A dish to share for our Thanksgiving Potluck Feast. Walking Hawk grew up
under the keen tutelage of wise elders from a mixture of different nations.
Being exposed to the humble ways of the ancestors gave Walking Hawk the insight
to train and reflect on the oneness of Mother Earth and all who live with her.
He walks the contrary path with Spirit and lives in compassionate service to
the people. Many people come from all over to attend his healing lodges and
ceremonies. His openness and insight have also brought him to many ceremonies
and gatherings, both open and secret, throughout the nation and abroad.  Walking Hawk, in collaboration with
Linda Fernandez, will also be available for private healing sessions &
ceremonies.

When Your Awakening Becomes A Crisis – A Talk by Kevin Sachs

 

Do you feel like you’re losing your mind? Are you losing
your grip on reality or acting in strange ways? Do you have spontaneous
spiritual experiences and not know why? Are you suddenly overwhelmed by
powerful emotions? Have you had a life-transforming experience or do you have a
spiritual practice and now feel like you’re losing your sanity? Do others tell
you something is wrong with you and yet you know something deeper is happening?
You may be in the throes of a psycho-spiritual crisis or Spiritual Emergency.
This talk is for anyone whose awakening has become a crisis or for anyone who
knows someone like this. We will discuss what Spiritual Emergency is and why it
happens, different types of Spiritual Emergency, and how to determine whether a
set of “symptoms” should be treated as a Spiritual Emergency or as a
psychological dysfunction. We will also talk about modalities for working with
Spiritual Emergency, what kind of support you might need and more. A Spiritual
Emergency can be a powerful initiation and a call to a more expanded life, and
in this talk we discuss how to use such an event to facilitate powerful
psycho-spiritual transformation.

 Kevin Sachs PhD
has been on a spiritual path for 38 years. He has a private practice in New
York City where he offers ongoing personal and emotional support for people who
do spiritual practice, support in preparing for and integrating deep,
transformative inner experiences, and support for people undergoing
psychospiritual crisis. Kevin is an advanced student of Holotropic Breathwork™
at Grof Transpersonal Training. He is also studying to certify as a Focusing
Professional with Ann Weiser Cornell and Jane Bell and studies shamanism with Jan
Edl Stein. He spent many years studying Siddha Yoga Meditation with Swami
Muktananda and Gurumayi Chidvilasananda. Kevin offers individual sessions in
New York City or by phone.

Guidance will be given on how to deepen our connection to the Great Mystery,
Wakan Tanka….We will also have the opportunity to participate in three inipi
ceremonies: a healing lodge, a star lodge and a universal/cosmic lodge. The

the Star Nation Elders. The universal/cosmic lodge brings in the teachings and
healings of the heavenly bodies of our solar system.

Oral Histories of Christiania: Consensus, Conflict, &
Catnip at ABC No Rio

 

Christiania is a squatted neighborhood of almost one
thousand people in Copenhagen, Denmark. The residents have now occupied 85
acres of downtown land for almost 40 years: raising children, creating art, running
businesses, building homes and making all of their decisions by consensus.
Since the election of a conservative government in 2001, they have been under
increasing pressure to legalize and “normalize” their community.  Almost every Christianite has a story
to tell about the recent legalization process. One would expect them to
describe the battles with police, the symbolic violence of being forced to
number their homes and name their streets, or the ongoing courtroom conflict,
and they do. But many of the most vivid stories center around the more private
dramas of the internal decision-making process through which Christiania has
developed responses to the various proposals of the Danish government. How has
their use of consensus shaped their response to pressure from the state? Can
consensus be strategic, or is it just an idealistic, holdover from
Christiania’s hippie past? Amy Starecheski will engage these questions by
sharing excerpts from her oral histories with Christianites. As Christiania's
Researcher in Residence from May 13-21 2010, Brindalyn Webster spent her time
collecting oral histories and definitions of normalization from Christianites,
filming Christiania's landscape and planting a catnip forest for feral cats. At
this event, she will be contributing a limited edition text based on
conversations with Christianites. A copy of the multiple will be gifted to
generous audience members who are willing to speak on its behalf.   Brindalyn Webster's work is based
on narratives that arise from interactions with specific people, places and
times. Between the years 2007 and 2009, Webster was fortunate enough to
participate in California College of the Art’s Social Practice MFA Program. She
was awarded a fellowship at Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in 2009.
More recently, Webster completed the Independent Study Program at Valand School
of Fine Arts, in Gothenburg Sweden.  
Amy Starecheski is an oral historian, former squatter, and doctoral student
in cultural anthropology at the CUNY Graduate Center. She is currently working
on a project to learn about the legalization and history of NYC squats. If
you’re interested in participating, or for more information about this event,
contact her at [email protected] or 718-402-1967.
