 Guest Speaker

 Karen Tate

Rev. Dr. Karen Tate has long been a Goddess advocate and a voice for the Divine Feminine consciousness as the "solution and sanctuary" our world so desperately needs, especially in this pivotal time.  Getting beyond the basics, Karen inspires us to access the Sacred Feminine as deity, archetype and ideal to manifest a new normal, discover our authentic selves and create a pathway to a more sustainable future.  We are witnessing an awakening across the globe as people evolve from the malignant chaos we face today.  Come hear the wisdom and activism suggested from Sacred Feminine Liberation Theology to help us birth a new world.

....Tate's book include:  Sacred Places of Goddess: 108 Destinations, Walking An Ancient Path; Rebirthing Goddess on Planet Earth, Goddess Calling: Inspirational Messages and Meditations of Sacred Feminine Liberation Thealogy.  Her first anthology is a compilation of guests from her radio show, titled Voices of the Sacred Feminine: Conversations to ReShape Our World and her newest anthology, just out in December 2016 is already creating a buzz, titled, Goddess 2.0: Advancing a New Path Forward.   Karen is a Certified Caring Economy Conversation Leader and Power of Partnership Practitioner with the Center for Partnership Studies.  She holds a certification in Psychology of Political Activism: Women Changing the World from Smith College. 
 
The Power of Goddess Ideals to Change Our World

You are not alone if you believe domination and authoritarian patriarchy are destroying countless lives and our planet.  There is a more sustainable alternative and it's not new.  In fact it's ancient.  Exiled for a time, but making a return, the Sacred Feminine has become indelibly integrated into our lives, reminding humanity during this time of crisis that the ideals of the Great She offer a pathway to a secure and more sustainable future.  As people lose faith in organized religion, as the paradigm of power shifts across the globe, as climate change quickly approaches a point of no return, people are leading using their divine intelligence from Goddess teachings to find solutions and sanctuary.  Using the wisdom and activism suggest in sacred feminine liberation theology, Karen will discuss one of the many ways Goddess Spirituality has grown and matured in the minds of Her advocates to inspire the birth of a new world and usher in a time of security, partnership, peace, equality and prosperity for all.

Liz Story

 

 

A native of California, Liz began her musical training as a young child, mastering Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 11 by the age of 11. When her family moved to Germany during her teens, she added languages, philosophy, and poetry to her studies. 
On her return to the United States, she continued her formal piano studies at the Juilliard School of Music and also enrolled at Hunter College.  After hearing the jazz pianist, Bill Evans, one night at the Bottom Line in New York City, she decided to learn jazz piano and became a student of Sanford Gold, whom Evans recommended Later, after moving back to Southern California, she studied at the Dick Grove Music Workshops in Studio City. During her studies, she took a job playing piano in a restaurant and was suddenly thrust into improvisations when she discovered that the piano she was to perform on had no stand for her sheet music.  Over several months, these improvisations developed into compositions. 

 
When Windham Hill's founder, Will Ackerman, heard a tape of her compositions developed from her improvisations, he signed her to record her debut album in 1983, “Solid Colors”.   Liz has since recorded:

        * Unaccountable Effect, 1985

        * Part of Fortune, 1988

        * Speechless, 1989

        * Escape of the Circus Ponies, 1990

        * My Foolish Heart, 1992 (reissued 2009 by Valley Entertainment)

        * The Gift, 1994

        * Liz Story, 1996

        * 17 Seconds to Anywhere, 1998

        * Welcome Home: The Very Best of Liz Story, 2001

        * Night Sky Essays, 2005

        * Pure Liz Story, 2006

Liz Story recently signed with DMI after recording a number of best-selling, critically acclaimed albums for Windham Hill and RCA Records. Those releases highlighted her classical piano background, fused with a wide range of styles embracing jazz, folk, pop and impressionistic music.
