Goddess 2000 Project and Intl. Pagan Pride Project Team Up for PPD

The Goddess 2000 Project (http://www.spiralgoddess.com) and the International Pagan Pride Project (http://www.paganpride.org) are pleased to announce that the two organizations have agreed to work together effective July 13, 2001.

This year's Pagan Pride Project Celebrations will be joined by Goddess 2000 Project coordinators and participants. Displays of Goddess & Pagan Art or "Create a Goddess" spaces where PPD attendees can exercise their own creativity, will be added to Pagan Pride Celebrations in many local areas, as part of the G2000 Project's "A Goddess on Every Block!". initiative.

So far this year, PPD has formally set up 83 Pagan Pride events during the month of September in the US, Canada, Brazil, Italy, the Netherlands, and Australia. The participation of the Goddess 2000 Project's local coordinators and participants will also help to create and organize Pagan Pride events in areas where PPD does not currently have events. Goddess 2000 Project has local coordinators in 52 countries.

In the words of PPD Executive Director Suzanne “Cecylyna Dewr” Egbert, “It's a logical combination. We both have local coordinators all over the globe. Working together lets us combine our resources so that neither of us reinvents the wheel. Both of our primary goals are to help the positive parts of our spirituality come out in the light where others can see them. Whether you're creating Goddess Art, or giving canned goods to a food bank, you're seeing the entire span of all that is positive about our spiritual journeys.” Goddess 2000 Project Director Abby Willowroot comments "We are very pleased to be working with PPD in sharing information and building community. It is this type of cross-tradition cooperation that is making the Pagan Community healthy and strong." The goal of the G2000 Project is to encourage the creation of sacred imagery by artists and non-artists alike.

For more information, please contact the Goddess 2000 Project's website www.spiralgoddess.com, or contact the International Pagan Pride Project's website www.paganpride.org or at 317.916.9115.

A year after her arrest along with her 32 fellow celebrants, Donna Henes, New York’s Urban Shaman, will return in triumph to South Beach on Staten Island for her 25th annual Winter Solstice Celebration. With the assistance of Norman Seigel of the New York Civil Liberties Union, she has succeeded in obtaining a permit to assemble — as well as official permission to light the traditional solstice fire. This Winter Solstice several special factors will combine to create an especially Celestially Auspicious Occasion. There will be a full moon which happens at solstice only once every 19 years. Greater, more extraordinary still, the moon will be at perigee, it’s closest distance to Earth. The last time all three events occurred together was in 1885. The closeness of the moon will cause it to appear to be perceptibly larger than usual. Because the solar perihelion is only 12 days away, bringing us several million miles closer to the sun, the amount of solar light striking the moon is also measurably stronger. If the night is clear, it will be very, very bright, especially if viewed reflected on snow or sand. And the tides will be proxigean (that is, astonishingly high) due to the dual influences of the full phase of the moon and it’s propinquity. An extremely dramatic display! Donna Henes publishes the quarterly, ALWAYS IN SEASON: LIVING IN SYNC WITH THE CYCLES and is the author of CELESTIALLY AUSPICIOUS OCCASIONS: SEASONS, CYCLES AND CELEBRATIONS.™

Enter the Dreamtime, with the shamanic synthesizer music of Dwight Loop of Tone Pharoah, and dance the Return of the Light with us! Some masks will be available.

DWIGHT LOOP has been a composer of electronic multi-media music since 1977, with performances in the Southwest, New York, and California. He was the creator of Earwaves, a new music radio program in Albuquerque, NM. Recently he performed his original composition "Hanab Ku" Part III at the Berkeley Arts Center.

"The three part trilogy is an attempt to sonically represent the Mayan cosmology concept of the "Hanab Ku". The Mayans theorized that this 'cosmic wave' energy called the Hanab Ku would occasionally shift......they wrote that when that happens, our consciousness and dimensional reality will shift along with it. There is no doubt that change is in the air. Are we beginning to feel the first wave of that shift?" Dwight Loop

Bring food and drink to share! A SUGGESTED DONATION OF $5 TO $10 IS ASKED TO HELP WITH THE COSTS OF THE PERFORMANCE, BUT NONE WILL BE TURNED AWAY.
