  29. 29. 27 • 914.967.6080 • 914.967.6080 MONTHLY FILM SERIES AND DISCUSSION with GRASSROOTS ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION GROUNDSWELL RISING How many children need to get sick? How long do we threaten our air, water and sanctity of life before the alarms are heeded? With the Oil and Gas industry’s expansion of fracking seen as a moral issue, this provocative documentary tracks a people’s movement, a groundswell rising towards reason and sensitivity, to protect life, today and tomorrow. Thursday, September 18 • 7:00-8:30pm UNACCEPTABLE LEVELS Over 80,000 chemicals flow through our system of commerce, and many are going straight into our bodies. Until recently, modern science really didn’t understand what that could mean for all of us in the long run, but that is changing. Unacceptable Levels opens the door to conversations about the chemical burden our bodies carry so that we can make informed decisions now and in the future. The film poses challenges to our companies, our government, and our society to do something about a nearly-unseen threat with the inspired knowledge that small changes can generate a massive impact. Wednesday, October 15 • 7:00-8:30pm TOXIC HOT SEAT Chemical flame retardants are everywhere. Our furniture. Our homes. Our bodies. But do they work as promised? And are they making us sick? Set against the backdrop of the award-winning 2012 Chicago Tribune investigative series “Playing With Fire,” Toxic Hot Seat threads together an intricate story of manipulation that details how Big Tobacco skillfully convinced fire safety officials to back a standard that, in effect, requires all furniture to be filled with toxic flame retardants. Wednesday, November 19 • 7:00-8:30pm Suggested Donation for Each Film: $5 • Organic Refreshments will be served. LECTURE & BOOK SIGNING with DR. HEIDI HUTNER, Author of “Polluting Mama: An Ecofeminist Memoir” Dr. Heidi Hutner is a writer, professor, environmentalist, mother and cancer survivor. Come out and meet Heidi as she discusses her new book (releasing late September 2014), “Polluting Mama: An Econfeminist Memoir”. In this book, Heidi explores her cancer and mothering experiences through an ecofeminist lens. After recovering from cancer, she became pregnant. Familiar with recent studies that show mothers’ wombs do not protect their fetuses from external pollutants to which we are all exposed, and that breast milk, too, is filled with contaminants, she began to ask herself such profound questions. Listen to Heidi as she discusses these questions and the journey that unfolded. Sunday, October 26 • 4:00-6:00pm • $40 (Member); $45 (Non-Member) Registration deadline: Oct 22

Over the past decade more and more people have discovered a new kind of spiritual awakening. It is more than an individual awakening. It is an opening that occurs in the relational space between individuals. Many are calling this as the new frontier of human development. Mutual Awakening: Opening into a New Paradigm of Human Relatedness is the first book by Patricia Albere and Jeff Carreira. It is devoted entirely to exploring the profound experience of mutual awakening. Mutual Awakening is the companion book to the Evolutionary Collective curriculum of the same name. There are currently two main hubs for the Evolutionary Collective Intensives, New York and San Francisco. Patricia co-teaches in New York with philosopher, teacher and writer, Jeff Carreira.
