A lovely Occupy video, featuring an anthem based on the words of the declaration of Occupy Wall Street by Rev Billy and the Church of Stop Shopping Choir. I first heard this performed by the choir as Revered Jesse Jackson finished his speech at Occupy Wall Street. Interestingly, the Rev appears in Scared Sacred, post 9.11, at Union Square, were people gathered to dialogue, mourn and come together.    I first met him when I was shooting CultureJam, directed by Jill Sharpe. He was one of the main characters, and has long been a prophet of...

A beautiful piece by Rebecca Solnit. She has long been an inspiration to me, since the days when I was shooting Scared Sacred  my journey to the ground zero’s of the world, searching for hope in the darkness.  Rebecca shares my view that there is hope to be found in every crisis, and in this article she traces a year of revolution, from the beginning of 2011 until now. I have a personal hope:  I hope to interview her for my upcoming feature documentary. All the pics are by me, taken at Occupy Wall Street. Dear young man who died...

Occupy the Present Moment!

Posted by on 2:13 pm in Latest News, Uncategorized | Comments Off on Occupy the Present Moment!

Here’s a lovely submission from Maia Duerr. Thank you! I spent this morning at Occupy Santa Fe. Among the hundreds of people who were there to march to the Round House (our capital building) and then peacefully assembled on the lawn there, about 15 of us offered a meditative presence. This was the first “official” Liberated Life Project event, cooked up with a number of people from my spiritual home, Upaya Zen Center, as well as other kindred spirits who joined us. Our banner read, “Occupy the Present Moment.” And we had a...

We are the 100%

Integrity, to Buckminster Fuller, represented the degree to which any design or system actively enhances the regenerative processes that support life on Earth. Thirty years ago, he wrote the cautionary tale Grunch of Giants to warn of the immediate dangers posed by the lack of integrity within the “invisible, abstract, and completely ruthless” empire of corporations that control the world’s finances. Dubbing this corrupt system theGross Universal Cash Heist (GRUNCH), he argued that, as a non-living entity, it was incapable of...

Non-Violent Tactics for Occupy Protests

Posted by on 9:00 am in Latest News, Uncategorized | Comments Off on Non-Violent Tactics for Occupy Protests

The following piece was submitted to Occupy Love by Shannon Harris.  Thanks Shannon!  I’ve edited it to fit the ethos of this page. One thing I would like to note – we are actually the 100%.  There is no us and them, so it’s important to recognize that the 1% is also us. We are 100% love.   One way to look at this that might be helpful, is this: consider that there are parts of yourself that are greedy or confused at times, angry or contracted, etc. etc. You don’t need to hate those shadow parts of yourself –...
