Herscovitch, Lara …And Justice For All: Advocacy for Reform through a Music Lens Life Skills- Other,
Music,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Decades of misguided policy and practice have created a human and civil rights crisis in the U.S. The massive, unequal and unethical overreach of our criminal justice system creates more problems than it solves. Though there is widespread, bipartisan, well-researched agreement on the need to shrink and reform the justice system, federal leadership is now repeating many of the same costly mistakes. This unique, multi-media program is educational and entertaining, part presentation and part concert. It covers themes including the over-criminalization of human behavior, implicit and system bias, impacts on children, mass incarceration, for-profit prisons, impacts on children and the role of schools, and alternative approaches that set us up to succeed instead of to fail.

P., L. Unique Journeys & Ecstatic Trance Workshops Health & Fitness- Sports,
Life Skills- Other,
Multicultural- Other
At certain points in one's life, it may become important to heal, to “empty” or “clean house” internally, in order to release old, worn-out beliefs, patterns, negative thought processes and unwarranted fears. Shamanic Journeying is the perfect way to heal old hurts, even stubborn ones, in order to experience wholeness and optimal health and well-being. Each workshop has a unique theme. Examples of themes are Seasons of the year, elements of Nature, such as water, essences of particular plants, such as pine from the forest, etc. I may lead students through a series of very gentle Yoga stretches and breathing techniques to help them to relax. We then transition into Shamanic Journeying, in order to get in touch with our innate wisdom and sense of perfect wholeness. In this state of consciousness, it becomes possible for students to gain profound insights into their own lives, those of their friends and loved ones, as well as the wider world in which we all live. Journeying as a group helps to create a safe, secure and supportive environment, in which an individual feels validated in her/his own experience.

Inside the circle, participants find the safety and support they need to give voice to their fears and struggles.
