Goddess on Earth

Goddess on Earth (the film) is a meditative video based on the archetypal stages of a woman’s life – maiden, mother and crone. Using the photographic portraits from the Goddess on Earth series of contemporary women portraying ancient sacred myths, viewers are enveloped by words, sounds and video. A virtual landscape of archetypal imagery is created that takes the viewers on a transcendent journey that encourages them to ruminate on their own life passage as well as the divine presence within us all.

Beginning with a presentation, Lisa will explore the artwork of various artists in America – herself included - who have used Goddess imagery as an affirmation of female power and independence.

As the feminist art movement arose in the early 1970s, innovative artwork was created that heighten the awareness of the female perspective. During this period, feminist artists such as Judy Chicago, Ana Mendieta, Mary Beth Edelson, and Louise Bourgeois, to name just a few, also began to reclaim the Goddess in their artworks. Their political art brought into focus both the lack of representation of women artists in the mainstream, male dominated art world, and the devaluation of the feminine in our patriarchal society.

After the initial presentation we will view Lisa's film, Goddess on Earth, together. This is a short film that celebrates the strength and self-esteem of contemporary women by photographing them in their embodiment of goddesses and sacred myths. The film has been seen in a variety of venues throughout the United States, and has featured such well-known women as Isabel Allende (author), Olympia Dukakis (actress), Nomfundo Walaza (CEO of Desmond Tutu Peace Trust), Gloria Feldt (former CEO Planned Parenthood, founder of Take the Lead) and Kathy Eldon (founder of Creative Visions).

The afternoon will culminate in an experiential workshop during which we will use Goddess imagery to invigorate our personal connection with the Divine; cultivate a deeper understanding of our selves through ancient mythology; employ archetypes as a catalyst for change; and stand in circle embodying the divine within us to bring a deeper mindfulness of our collective memory.

Cost for this afternoon workshop is $35 in advance, $40 on the day of the event.

Please feel free to bring any clothing, accessories, masks, etc, that you think you might want to use of share during the experiential portion of the workshop.

There will be a few opportunities for individual photo sessions with Lisa on the following day. Contact Radiance for more information on this opportunity.

Goddess on Earth (the film) has been seen at numerous conferences and festivals including; Women, Power and Peace Conference, Omega Institute, Rhinebeck, NY; A Conversation with Eve Ensler, Riverspace, Nyack, NY; Power into Action, Grass Valley, CA; Glastonbury Goddess Conference, Glastonbury, England; Where Womyn Gather, Pennsylvania, Smarter, Bolder, Older, Rye, NY; WAVE- The Women’s Avenue, Mashpee, MA; and Women at Woodstock, Woodstock, NY.

Ancestor Stories: Taking Blessings, Receiving Strength with Karen Carnabucci, LCSW, TEP

What if the troubles that we carry are not ours?
What if there are other ways of knowing?
What if the body's ability to sense energy is a gift?
What if the experience makes the difference?

This experiential workshop, led by Karen Carnabucci, will explore how our lives are impacted by those who came before us -- our ancestors -- and how we can find relief from carrying the burdens that do not belong to us. In doing so, we discover hidden patterns in our family tree that may affect our relationships, business or health and heal these love-blocking energies.

Each participant may be involved as much or as little according to comfort level, sharing general issues, not details.  The group is collaborative and we improvise, according to the needs of the participants and the group.

Some people call this kind of work “modern shamanism” and others resonate with the mysterious spiritual components that are both invisible and powerful. Those who are interested in increasing or accessing their intuition and inner knowing will find this body-based inquiry highly valuable, a kind of a laboratory to practice and refine sensing energy.  Whether you observe or actively participate, you’ll learn a lot about yourself and how you are a part of those who came before you.

This workshop will be held in the classroom at Radiance, 9 W Grant St., in the heart of downtown Lancaster.  Cost is $35 in advance, $40 on the day of the workshop.  Bring a photo or memento of an ancestor, your journal, and water to drink.  To register, you may stop in, or phone Radiance 717-290-1517.

Karen Carnabucci, MSS, LCSW, TEP, well-known as a non-traditional psychotherapist in Lancaster, Pa., has returned after 15 years away, living, working and touring in the Midwest. During those years, she became acquainted with Family and Systemic Constellations, which she has incorporated with her multi-dimensional way of working with people who seek her out for healing, learning and mentoring. In addition, Karen offers professional training with continuing education credits for social workers, marriage and family therapists, professional counselors, addictions counselors, educators and others.
