Yes, there will be headlines; but then I'd like to talk about patriarchy.  I lived as a male for 43 years, most of that time believing that I was one; now I've lived for a decade as a transwoman.  The view from here: we live in an artificial, longstanding, dehumanizing system of domination, immiserating women and choking the vitality of men.  I'll explain....

program date: 
Wed, 04/18/2012

We live in a time of converging crises -- climate change, financial disruption, energy shortages, species extinctions, the list goes on. "Life as usual" is on the verge of implosion. How do we enter this new era? How can we make sense of it? Visionary author and speaker, Duane Elgin acknowledges the threats, and yet speaks of hope. He points to trends in society and science that can help us to see an even bigger picture, what he calls "our larger story as a human family." Duane shares how a radical shift to sustainability and community is at hand if we can embrace the Great Transition Stories that could help us to become consciously transformed by the challenges of our time. Hosted by Stephanie Potter.

Duane will be presenting a workshop Our World in Transition at the Earth Day Conference 2012: for the Next Seven Generations, which is being offered by the Earth and Spirit Council in partnership with the Sylvania Campus of Portland Community College. KBOO is a proud co-sponsor of the Earth Day 2012 Conference & Celebration.

Most of the lakes and marshes of the Klamath Basin were "reclaimed" and drained for agriculture nearly 100 years ago--only 20% remain, but the Klamath Basin National Wildlife Refuge Complex on the Oregon/California border, is still the most important waterfowl habitat on the Pacific Flyway. However, last month over 10,000 birds died there from overcrowding as a result of a water cut-off by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation. This was the biggest die-off in a decade.

Susan Pease Banitt on "The Trauma Tool Kit: Healing PTSD from the Inside Out"

Post traumatic stress syndrome (PTSD) is widely pervasive catastrophe affecting millions of Americans, and in her recently published The Trauma Tool Kit: Healing PTSD from the Inside Out, author and therapist Susan Pease Banitt, LCSW, describes PTSD as a whole body tragedy . . with massive repercussions. We cannot patch it up in 12 weeks of counseling or with a pill or with surgery. Left untreated it grows and morphs into a destructive beast that erodes the very fabric of wellness in the human being. It has the unique power to unravel body, mind and spirit.

The 2nd Revolution: Dismantling Corporate Rule

program date: 
Wed, 06/06/2012

We live "drenched in corporate culture," with our planet, our democracy, and all of us "real people" under assault. But, according to Paul Cienfuegos, "We the people are more powerful than we dare to believe," and the corporate power structure CAN be dismantled. A long-time community organizer and educator, Cienfuegos provides a wealth of information showing how the fictions of "corporate personhood" and "corporate rights" can be challenged and reversed by empowered, informed citizen action. He'll be leading a Portland workshop June 9-10.
