Prosperity – a film by author by Pedram Shojai

Prosperity – a film about “For Benefit” Companies
Thursday, December 14th
7 pm
3rd Street Center, 520 S Third Street, Carbondale

If you’re tired of hearing about all that’s wrong with the world and would rather get up and do something about it, then Prosperity is a must-see film. Get-inspired with ideas of how to invest your money and how to apply principles of “For Benefit” companies in your personal life and your business no matter how big or small!

Prosperity follows a new generation of companies that are doing the right thing and deserve our attention (and money). There’s an emerging movement of “For Benefit” companies that are building into their bylaws the new ethics of conscious companies. In the old days, a CEO could be sued by the board if he/she didn’t maximize profits at any cost. Now, companies can elect to be “For Benefit” and factor in doing the right thing over just profits alone.

“For Benefit” – A Revolutionary Movement that Is Changing The Game.

This documentary follows the key players in the “For Benefit” movement showing a real positive way out of the mess we’ve inherited and helped co-create. The more we support this blossoming movement, the more money goes to people who care…people who will take a stand for our values and our environment.

From CEOs of major public companies, to urban farmers, and remote tribes, Prosperity covers the whole story in a powerful narrative.

Dances of Universal Peace

Dances of Universal Peace with Bernie Heideman
Saturday, November 18
4 to 6 pm
3rd Street Center, Round Room
520 S. Third Street, Carbondale

“The times call for prayer, connection, being in the heart, and joy.” – Bernie Heideman

The Dances of Universal Peace are circle dances with a mantra, sacred phrase, or affirmation sung while dancing. The experience allows for “presence” to naturally emerge in the group.  The dances are embodied  prayers.

You don’t need to be a great singer nor an accomplished dancer to participate.  All the voices  and steps blend.

Bernie Heideman has been leading dances for 25 years and has created many dances.  His current direction is to increase the level of joy in the dances as well increase the connection and depth.  His most recent dances are more “dance-y” where the steps relate to the rhythm of the chant.  His leadership style is relaxed, loose, and inviting.  Bernie has recorded 10 cd’s and led dances in many countries.

Suggested Donation: $10 at the door
