Never before has it been so easy to get a “date” but so hard to find true love. In our liberated, modern, techno-savvy world, opportunities to connect with a potential partner are endless: we can speed date, shop online for a mate, go on a lunch date, get set-up or even just hook-up (with no strings attached!). But amidst the swirl of choices facing us, and the pressure of our fast-paced busy lives, the prospect of finding not just “someone,” but “the one” feels increasingly out of reach. You might even be wondering if it’s really possible to find someone who’s a true Soulmate, a best friend and equal, a life partner who you can fully share yourself with in every way. Fortunately for all of us, a small group of dedicated experts have devoted their lives to “cracking the code” to attracting and sustaining DEEP and true love—the kind of love and partnership your heart most longs for and desires. These authors, luminaries, transformation experts, scientists and coaches have been researching and exploring for decades how to attract and create great love. And together, they have successfully taught millions of singles from around the world how to “magnetize” the relationship of their dreams. In fact, each of them holds a transformational key that will work for anyone who applies it. Their combined insights cover virtually everything you need to know to become a love magnet to attract your soulmate.

And starting this Valentine’s day, for the first time ever, these top relationship experts are all coming together in ONE place to share their secrets and deep expertise—right here, on your computer—and the best news is… it’s FREE. Participation Is FREE There is no cost to participate in this live, interactive event. Thanks to our generous sponsors, and to all the experts who have volunteered their time, we are able to offer this event to you for FREE.

Support a 5th World Conference on Women

February 25th, 2010 · Home, Muse Happenings and Events


Published by Jean Shinoda Bolen on Oct 12, 2009
Category: Women’s Rights & Empowerment
Region: GLOBAL
Target: United Nations: Secretary-General and all relevant components & NGOs.
Web site: http://www.5wcw.org/

Background (Preamble):
A UN 5th World Conference on Women (5WCW) would be the most influential and far-reaching women’s conference ever held. Grassroots activism and political leadership needs to be mobilized or it won’t happen.

The 4th conference was held in Beijing in 1995, drew over 40,000 participants, and led to the Beijing Platform for Action, which if implemented would have created a world where women’s rights and human rights were one in the same. The empowerment of women changes priorities: safety for women and children, nutrition, health and education, and concern for the environment are women’s concerns.

With the creation of a UN women’s super agency equivalent to UNICEF for children, authorized by the UN General Assembly in September 2009, it is possible that this new entity could organize a 5th world conference on women in 2015 (instead of a Beijing +20 review). The effect could be synergistic in advancing a women’s agenda. Because this would not be an official UN conference of governments — but rather a UN -sponsored conference of non-governmental organizations in civil society — it could not re-open the many excellent official documents already produced by the UN, but would focus on turning them into reality in the lives of women and girls globally.

The 21st century is an era of communication: networking via emails, cellphones and websites, information through youtube and live-stream coverage, simultaneous regional conferences via satellite broadcasting could reach people all over the world. The event would raise consciousness about unconscionable conditions as well as solutions that could focus on the work of NGOs. It would encourage the formation of women’s circles and mobilize a new wave of women’s movement activism. It would inform the world that the Beijing Platform for Action and UN Security Council Resolutions #1325 and its amendments on Women, Peace, & Security–if implemented, would bring about gender equality, end violence toward women and lead to peaceful solutions to conflicts.

A UN 5th women’s conference and the events preceding and following it would create a critical mass, a tipping point of aware and involved women and men.

Laguna Beach, CA – There is no downtime for Diane Challis Davy, the director of Laguna’s world-famous celebration of art in tableaux vivants – “living pictures” – the Pageant of the Masters. Even before last summer’s sold-out run of All the World’s a Stage closed, Challis Davy was meeting with her volunteer research committee and longtime Pageant scriptwriter Dan Duling to brainstorm about the production for summer 2009, The Muse. As always, Challis Davy’s enthusiasm is infectious.

“All the World’s a Stage was all about the joy of stage performance and the timeless excitement of the theatre,” the director said. “In The Muse, we’re going to dig deeper into the psyche to discover who or what motivates artists to create.” In ancient mythology, the Muses were the nine lovely daughters of Zeus and the Goddess of Memory. They personified the mysterious and, as some have described it, the “feminine,” process of inspiration, getting in touch with one’s inner wellspring of creativity. For Challis Davy, that’s something worthy of closer examination.

“Not all inspiration is divine, nor does it appear out of nowhere in a blinding flash,” she offered. “Behind every masterpiece is a story of fascination, love, passion and obsession.” For French impressionist Claude Monet, his wife was both muse and model for many of his most famous works. By contrast, Paul Gauguin’s travels to the South Seas radically transformed his art in bold, new ways. Paintings by Monet, Gauguin, Salvador Dali and Maxfield Parrish will be among the more than 40 artworks re-created on the Pageant stage in The Muse.

Every artist’s journey is uniquely dramatic, sometimes heartbreakingly so, as in the story of French sculptress Camille Claudel whose works will also be featured. Claudel’s art will be part of a larger tribute in the 2009 Pageant to the often under-appreciated contributions of women artists, including Frida Kahlo, Berthe Morisot, Mary Cassatt and others. “Women artists will surprise you,” Challis Davy noted. “They have had more than their share of obstacles to overcome and conventions to break.” In telling some of those stories, The Muse will offer both dramatic and comic counterpoint to centuries of art in which women have been repeatedly depicted as little more than pretty ornaments or helpless damsels in distress.

While assembling a stunningly beautiful and varied program of paintings, sculptures and decorative art for The Muse, Challis Davy once again promised a few theatrical surprises in the works, an essential part of this extraordinarily popular show that continues to excite audiences with its unique combination of artistry and stage magic.
