Death Makes Life Possible follows cultural anthropologist and scientist Marilyn Schlitz, Ph.D. as she explores the mysteries of life and death from a variety of perspectives and world traditions. Sparked by her own near death experience as a teenager, Schlitz has been delving into the nature of consciousness and death for the past three decades. Interviews with mental health experts, cultural leaders, and scientists explore the meaning of death and how understanding our own mortality makes life possible. Don't miss this great opportunity to join Marilyn for a viewing of the film and and a discussion afterward.

Join Leisa Peterson for an introductory discussion about a simple self-empowering introspective system she developed to help people RELEASE their financial anxieties and RESOLVE their money issues. Click here for more info.

A few of the benefits you will receive by attending:

- Clear the emotional clutter of limiting financial beliefs.
- Gain a clear understanding of why it is spiritually “ok” to be prosperous.
- Create a healthy and empowering relationship with money and finance.

For the past 22 years, Leisa Peterson, MBA, CFP®, worked in executive and sales roles for some of the largest financial institutions in the U.S. Yet, for all of her continued success, advanced education, and extensive financial knowledge, she knew something wasn't right when it came to her own and her client's experiences with money.
She found herself asking the question, “Why does money have a way of bringing up feelings of temporary insanity and what can be done to stop it?” Over time she saw that the answers were not going to come from conventional tools such as better planning or working harder. The money behaviors she experienced and witnessed were universal and independent of where we grow up, how much (or little) we have and seem to fit better into the study of psychology than personal finance.

Leisa experienced several back-to-back personal tragedies over the past 15 years which led her to develop a meditation practice and to take time away from her busy life to participate in several retreats. These events led to many realizations including the fact that answers to life's biggest questions would only come through self-discovery and self-understanding.

Leisa's goal is to motivate audiences to try new ways of thinking when it comes to money and to foster continuous growth. Participants come away from Leisa's presentations with solid information they can apply. Leisa has had the honor and pleasure of teaching meditation and mindfulness workshops for the past 7 years at For Goodness Sake in Truckee, CA.

To RSVP or for more information, visit www.Wealthclinic.com or contact Leisa at 530-448-1558 or lpeterson@wealthclinic.com. This event is offered free of charge.

It’s a Man’s World ~ What’s a Girl Gonna Do?

Marilyn Nyborg, has produced a 16 minute DVD based on Jane Evershed’s book, The Book of Jane: the story of women. The creativity and special graphic effects in which Jane’s art is combined with photography along with her narration, is impactful on many levels. Jane does not mince words. It’s one thing to hear facts, stories and specifics about women; it is another to see, hear and feel them merged together in narrative, images and music.

The viewer is left with the question: What would the world look like today, had women been at the table of global consequences, an equal partner in the design of our culture, institutions and systems? We will follow the film with conversation and ideas on what we might do to bring feminine wisdom and values into our communities and the systems in which we live.

As Jimmy Carter writes in his new book, A Call to Action: Women, Religions, Violence and Power, “the most serious and unaddressed worldwide challenge is the deprivation and abuse.

Marilyn, a successful business owner and high tech recruiter in Silicon Valley for 25 years, co-founder of Gather the Women Global Matrix, founder of Gather the Women of Nevada County and Women Waking the World, is a master networker with 45 years of connections in women’s leadership and women’s circles. She is a speaker and tele-seminar leader, and producer of the video, “The Book of Jane: the story of woman.” A lifetime of experiences in sacred activism has allowed Marilyn to develop an international network to restore feminine wisdom, values and influence in the service of all life. She is committed to a world that creates change in cultural values, personal choices, and policies worldwide that shift humanity’s consciousness from separation and domination to integration and unity.

Seating in For Goodness Sake is limited, so reservations are highly recommended. Please e-mail nttwomen@yahoo.com by May 9th to reserve your space.

Women Empowering Woman is dedicated to providing motivational speakers who address different aspects of achieving balance and harmony through the Mind, Body and Spirit. For more information about our organization, e-mail martha@omegaport.com.

These daylongs are part of an ongoing course which explores the teachings of the Buddha through his life story and other parables.

Polly Ryan, MA, MFT has been a devoted student of Lama Tsultrim Allione since 1989. Under the tutelage of B.

Having met the educational and practice requirements of Lama Tsultrim’s Kapala Training in 2008, Polly is now certified as a Feeding Your Demons™ Therapist and utilizes this process as a vital and transformative therapeutic life tool to assist clients in feeding rather than fighting their inner blocks to healing, growth and transformation. Polly has practiced psychotherapy for over 25 years in Truckee, CA; and Reno, NV. She leads the Tahoe-Reno Sangha at For Goodness Sake in downtown Truckee.
