Does everyone know about Pangea Day? It is coming VERY soon. Check out www.pangeaday.org right away and learn all about it! Below is an intro…
The Pangea Day Mission & Purpose
Pangea Day is a global event bringing the world together through film.
Why? In a world where people are often divided by borders, difference, and conflict, it’s easy to lose sight of what we all have in common. Pangea Day seeks to overcome that – to help people see themselves in others – through the power of film.
The Pangea Day Event
Starting at 18:00 GMT on May 10, 2008, locations in Cairo, Kigali, London, Los Angeles, Mumbai, and Rio de Janeiro will be linked for a live program of powerful films, live music, and visionary speakers. The entire program will be broadcast – in seven languages – to millions of people worldwide through the internet, television, and mobile phones.
The 24 short films to be featured have been selected from an international competition that generated more than 2,500 submissions from over one hundred countries. The films were chosen based on their ability to inspire, transform, and allow us see the world through another person’s eyes.
I just wanted to let folks know that although Oprah and Eckhart are finishing up with their ten week webcast next Monday, there is still time to download all ten of the videos, either as ipod video format, larger video format or just audio. Whatever works for you. They are really lovely and 100% free. You can get them all if you go to the itunes store, and click on podcasts. It is on the most popular list. Or you can go to oprah.com and get them, but you have to join her book club to get them there.
The other thing I want to say about what Oprah is doing is that she is having something on her same online classroom that is called the “Soul Series” and they will continue on Monday nights. The night after Eckhart finishes, so that would be May 19th, she is having Jill Bolte Taylor on there. She is the brain-scientist who made that wonderful video about right and left brain about her stroke. I gave you the link to it a few weeks ago. After Jill, she will have a series of awakened teachers of various sorts–I’m not sure who, but I bet it will be worth watching for sure.
I started out to write this post by saying that I’d been hanging around being unemployed… I can’t believe I was even going to say that! It hasn’t been just hanging around idly, that’s for sure. I’ve been totally busy. There’s a lot of prep to get ready to do the initial pilot of the new “playshop” which is a WAY better word than workshop, don’t you think? And writing on a new book. And I took a workshop myself last weekend called Diamond Voice with Maniko (templeofsong.com) and Lori (ecstaticproductions.com) and it was fabulous! Anyway the playshop I’m creating is 6 hours long, 9-12 and 1-4. A wonderful place to have it has made itself evident and so the pilot will be there,and also a series following that. Once a month sounds good to me… the details are still being worked out. The pilot and will be on May 17th in Mountain View, California and the ongoing series will be there too, but I promise I will take it on the road. If you would like me to come to your town, let me know. The description is on the website, though constantly under revision as we approach the pilot, where it will be refined further.
And unemployed? Well, maybe, but only if you look at it from the standard work ethic perspective. But maybe even not then. I could be on my way to something far more wonderful than college administration. I’m just finding out what it is as I go along.
