Mothering Our Nations

Mothering Our Nations

Jun 12, 7:00pm - Jun 12, 9:30pm

Golden Drum
97 Green St, # G1
Brooklyn, NY  11222 Map

These brave woman represent their nations back home, where they work tirelessly to keep the sanctity of the land and their people intact. To mother a nation, is to be responsible, to take action, and to be considerate of the future generations of human life and all life that inherit the outcome of our choices today. We call upon the original people to share how their cultural practices and ways are central to the work that each of these women do to maintain harmony with the world around them. They come with a combined message to encourage each of us to explore the traditional ways of our own ancestry and to weave them into the way we walk in this world.

This event is by donation. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.

About the Presenters:
Pualani Case

Pua Case born and raised on the Island of Hawai’i surrounded by the high mountains of Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa, Hualalai and Kohala, the fresh waters of Kohakohau and Waikoloa and the plains of Waimea. Pua’s life path and purpose has led her to become a Kumu Hula, a teacher of traditional dance and chant, and a teacher of the ways, culture and traditions of the kanaka maoli or native peoples of Hawai’i. With a degree in Hawaiian Language and culture, and a teaching degree in Social Studies, interwoven with the traditional teachings, philosophies and expectations from her kupuna or elders, Pua has integrated ‘Ike Hawai’i or Hawaiian knowledge and lessons into the public school system for over 30 years.

Pua and her ‘ohana, her family are active as spiritual and cultural leaders in and beyond their community. They are an integral part of the protocol and ceremonies for Nā Kalaiwa’a, Moku o Keawe Makali’i Voyaging Canoe, as well as for Hōkūle’a and other Pacific Island Voyages. Pua sits on various educational and cultural boards including the Waimea Hawaiian Civic Club, Waimea Community Education Hui, and MKEA, Mauna Kea Education and Awareness. Pua and her family are petitioners in the Contested Case hearing filed on behalf of Mauna Kea Mountain. As a representative of the Mauna Kea ‘Ohana Nā Kia’I Mauna, Idle No More Hawai’i Warriors Rising and Idle No More Mauna, Kea she and her family have traveled throughout the continent, to Europe and various places across the Pacific to network, support and address the issues and challenges facing sacred places and life ways of the people of HawaiʻI and beyond Hawaii. In the past two years, Pua has represented the Mauna Kea Movement in Aotearoa and in California, she is in support of the Winnemem Wintuʻs efforts to bring back the salmon to the McCloud River. She has stood on the frontlines in North Dakota at Standing Rock and Sacred Stone Camps with fellow Mauna Kea Protectors. In October, Pua has been featured at Indigenous Peoples Day Celebrations in New York City for five years. This work is a one of commitment, dedication, passion and a mission to weave the relationships and strengthen the alliances with peoples everywhere for the highest good for the earth.

MaryAnn Bearheels (Ta Oyate Waste Wi—Her Good Nation Women)

MaryAnn a Ceremonial Prayer Woman of the Sicangu Lakota from Rosebud, South Dakota. “Our Lakota way of life starts with our creation stories and oral traditions that have been handed down over 500 years. We are creating awareness about our Indigenous environmental issues through our teachings of the water, buffalo, and bear teachings. Re-vitalizing our spiritual and physical being as Lakota women is vitally important to our future generations. Lakota community genetics is an overall look at how we are able to re-birth our nation utilizing our sovereignty and inherent rights to protect our ceremonies and women. We are the backbone to our nation and the umbilical cord to our earth.”

Melaine Stoneman, (Wakinyan Ska Wi—White Lightning Women)

Melaine is an environmental Earth warrior protecting sacred sites, water, food, women and children. She is a member of the Braveheart Women’s Society where all women’s ceremonies come together to support women and children. Women’s societies play an important role that is necessary to the traditional way of life. One of Melaine’s roles within these women’s societies is teaching the young girls about the spiritual Wasna,(spiritual food, corn, buffalo, chokecherries). These spiritual foods are utilized to spiritually cleanse and heal. The current environment is not safe to harvest the traditional foods, the waters upstream are being contaminated and the Buffalo roam is limited. These traditional foods are connected to the spiritual DNA of the people, which is why this knowledge is safeguarded and taught to the young women, so they can pass along these ways through the generations. Melaine Stoneman is an advocate for M.M.I.W., Missing Murdered Indigenous Women. MMIW has been Melaine’s pathway to bring awareness about the victims and survivors of such violence. She organizes A walk/ride/run to help heal the area’s increasingly polluted waters affected by pipelines and to raise awareness about the epidemic of missing and murdered indigenous people. She believes that protecting the women and girls is a priority because the women and environment are spiritually bounded to the sacred sites, water & food.

They have a responsibility to hold space & heal at these sacred sites to help with our connection to Unci Maka, Mother Earth. The sacred sites are being diminished by people that want their land and water. Women have the right to hold space for prayer, birthing, ceremony, song, dance and cooking. Melaine Stonemen is devoted to keeping these traditions alive & protected. “We are the backbone to our nation and the umbilical cord to our earth.” –Melaine Stoneman

The current environment is not safe to harvest the traditional foods, the waters upstream are being contaminated and the Buffalo roam is limited. These traditional foods are connected to the spiritual DNA of the people, which is why this knowledge is safeguarded and taught to the young women, so they can pass along these ways through the generations. Melaine Stoneman is an advocate for M.M.I.W., Missing Murdered Indigenous Women. MMIW has been Melaine’s pathway to bring awareness about the victims and survivors of such violence. She organizes A walk/ride/run to help heal the area’s increasingly polluted waters affected by pipelines and to raise awareness about the epidemic of missing and murdered indigenous people. She believes that protecting the women and girls is a priority because the women and environment are spiritually bounded to the sacred sites, water & food.

They have a responsibility to hold space & heal at these sacred sites to help with our connection to Unci Maka, Mother Earth. The sacred sites are being diminished by people that want their land and water. Women have the right to hold space for prayer, birthing, ceremony, song, dance and cooking. Melaine Stonemen is devoted to keeping these traditions alive & protected. “We are the backbone to our nation and the umbilical cord to our earth.” –Melaine Stoneman

BECOME AN INSPIRED AND EMPOWERED PSYCHOTHERAPIST
HEAL YOURSELF IN ORDER TO HELP OTHERS HEAL INSPIRED BY DEBRA FRANKLIN, LCSW

The best therapists are those that have experienced a powerful inner healing. There are many wonderful psychological and spiritual healing techniques, but until you heal your own wounds in order to really free your heart, mind, and intuition, those techniques will not be fully effective.

As you transform, you empower love, understanding, intuition, and compassion, the most important ingredients to healing. Integrate those with spiritual approaches, sound healing, guided imagery, and energy psychology, and you will discover and empower your true therapeutic gifts. You can learn to see and feel clients “wounds” even before they talk about them and intuitively guide them through a very beautiful life changing journey once you have traversed your own.

Debra Franklin developed The Heart Path Therapy ® for therapists. It combines powerful healing approaches from ancient spiritual wisdom with modern uses of guided imagery, Family Constellations, inner child work, sound healing, and energy psychology.

Training and support groups are available, but this is a very special weekend including Debra’s spiritual teacher, Maestro Manuel Rufino and the Golden Drum community that he has inspired and their gifts. This transformational weekend will take you on an inner journey to experiencing life in a new way. In turn you can become a uniquely creative psychotherapist.

Debra experienced deeply transformational healing and spiritual development with many different gifted teachers. her most recent of at least 10 years, Maestro Manuel Rufino. He helped her own healing and development and in turn helped Debra to inspire the Heart Path Therapy for Therapists™ for Therapists.

Drawing the Female Buddha Face: Thangka Art Series

May 19, 10:00am - May 19, 5:00pm

Sacred Arts Research Foundation
107 Green St, #G55
Brooklyn, NY  11222 Map

In this special day workshop you will learn how to draw the face of a female Buddha (such as the face of Green Tara or White Tara). This is dome through the Tibetan Buddhist Thangka tradition and therefore we will work with the traditional ‘grid measurements’ that contain the right proportions.

Besides the drawing sessions, this workshop contains a short meditation and a presentation on the symbolism of the female Buddha face. There is individual guidance and a lot of room for questions.

NOTE: If you are new to this you can also choose to draw the Buddha Face instead, which is usually the first step in Thangka painting, and much easier than the female face.

The use of materials is included, but you are welcome to bring your favorite art materials as well.
Also bring some slippers or thick socks to wear.

There will be an hour lunch break so pack some food for the day!

Special Mother's Day Weekend Edition!!!

Please come to heal and make peace (in your heart) with the challenges you experience with your mother. This, in turn, will help your relationship to yourself and others, as any resentments or frustrations you feel with your parents will affect your self-esteem and relations.

On Saturday, May 11th, 9:30-6PM, we will engage in meditation and creative uses of Family Constellations to gain a heartfelt understanding of what went wrong so the healing compassion for that relationship deepens. It is recommended, though not required, to engage in the Friday night meditation to deepen the healing power on this day.

Sunday, May 12th is Mother’s Day with now hopefully a renewed opportunity to connect with your mother, whether on earth or in spirit on your own.

Family Constellations was developed by Bert Hellinger during his observation of Zulu tribes. It is an effective way to transform what is holding you back so that you can live your life from your greatest potential. They uncover and dissolve the blockages affecting your relationships, finances, profession, and health so you are free to live the fulfilling life you were really meant to live.

"A miracle is a shift in perception", says The Course of Miracles. That is exactly what begins to happen after Family Constellations. However, that is only the beginning.

Registration options: (It is highly recommended to participate in the Friday night meditation to deepen your process on Saturday)

The Sacred Arts Research Foundation and Golden Drum Community members have been cultivating their connection to sacred sound, chanting, mantra, folkloric and healing songs from around the world. Under the guidance and inspiration of Maestro Manuel Rufino, Taino Elder & world director of M.A.I.S.C, we have come together to create an educational platform for sacred songs to be learned.

Music is one of the deepest forms of prayer and healing that we carry with us throughout our lives. To learn, carry and sing a sacred song is an ability we all have, we simply need to tap into it. In our school, we invite you to tap into your own ability to use sacred song as a study, practice and way of prayer and expression. We will create an environment that promotes the development and learning of traditional sacred songs from all around the world. Each class will focus on a selection of songs, where we will learn the pronunciation, translation, and intention of the songs, as well as covering the melodic and rhythmic structure of singing the song.

Please bring a journal and pencil so that you may keep a record of the songs you learn. Bring a drum or rattle if you have one. All singing levels are welcome.

Please arrive 5 minutes early so we may start on time:)

Donations are welcome (suggested $10-20) but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

In this workshop, you will receive the Reiki symbols, which will allow you to take your Reiki healing to a deeper level. You will learn about the spirit of healing and Reiki at an emotional and mental level, receive deeper teachings on the nature of the light body, more advanced techniques of energetic hygiene, and how to work with Reiki beyond the frame of time and space.

Within the last 5 years, numerous public institutions have venerated Reiki. As of 2014, Reiki has been integrated into palliative care in over 60 hospitals nationwide and is currently offered at state schools all over the US, as well as other health-related institutions. For this reason, we use Reiki as a platform to teach many healing techniques and ideas.

In this class, students will go deeper into their study of Reiki and Shamanic Healing Practices with the introduction of the Reiki symbols and mantras and other healing techniques.
