Jina Penn-Tracy & Stuart Valentine
Interest in Socially Responsible and Impact Investing has been expanding in recent years. Globally, more money than ever before is being invested with life-giving rather than life-harming intentions. And research is showing that integrating values into the investment process does not harm returns.
Ida Fields, Leora Edut, Monica Aparicio, & Vanessa Codorniu

Art of Dying Institute Author Series Presents: A Short Course on Happiness After Loss (and Other Dark, Difficult Times)
In the territories of loss, illness, loneliness and weariness, author and psychologist Maria Sirois brings to light a seemingly paradoxical exploration of the science of positive psychology and the realities of those darker territories.
Mama Donna Henes
Join us for a lively evening with renowned ceremonialist Mama Donna Henes as we greet the first full moon of autumn. The Full Harvest Moon is the largest, most spectacular moon of the year. It marks many diverse festivals of food, fortune, and fulfillment all over the world, in honor of Mother Earth, She who feeds us and attends to all our needs.
Elisa Carnahort Page, Carolyn Gerin, & Jamia Wilson
As marches, protests, and boycotts return to the cultural conversation in the United States and people look to take action and make their voices heard, co-authors Elisa Camahort Page, Carolyn Gerin, and Jamia Wilson will provide practical tactics for navigating and protecting one's personal democracy, and for making an impact from right where they are.
Tonight we will gather in community, in the energy of the approaching full moon, to prepare ourselves for the upcoming change of season. Guided by healer and teacher Olivia Olkowski, we will use shamanic practices - including journeying and work with Power Animals - to find our direction and intentions for the winter months ahead.
Ira Byock, Anthony Bossis, & Craig D. Blinderman
People with advanced medical illness often experience depression, anxiety, feelings of hopelessness, and loss of meaning and value of life. Some conclude that their life is not worth living and desire to hasten their deaths.

The Cold Moon this December occurs on the evening before the Winter Solstice, shining its lunar light on the longest, darkest night of the year. This moon illuminates our intentions, lights our path and ignites the ember spark of warmth in our hearts that can sustain us during the coming season of chill and shadow.
Release old patterns and limiting thoughts and move into the future with clarity and lightness. January is an auspicious time to use the focused power of ritual to align our minds, hearts, and actions, and release what is preventing us from manifesting our goals.
Come together to welcome the first full moon of the year with shamanic healer Olivia Olkowski. The Wolf Moon speaks to survival, to a sharpening of our natural instincts and focus, an appropriate energy for this New Year where we want to hone in on new goals.
Maria Sirois, Kelly Fredrickson & Catherine Flavin
