New 2019 Wall Calendar — Wild Woman Rising

Wild Woman Rising 2019 wall calendar

Who is the wild woman? She’s the grit and grace inside that insists we claim our voice, trust our instinct, and fearlessly cast off forces that insist on perfection and oppression. She will not allow the plundering of the divine feminine or our natural resources. She will not be tamed. We crave her protection and we long to bask in her healing presence. We bravely step up, howling with the insistence that we will no longer live without her. We brazenly demand a fulfilling life, one in which we embrace our true essence. She will rise and so shall we. For there is no force more powerful than a determined woman.

Sophie Wilkins’s evocative illustrations are ripe with symbolism. Wilkins explores the myriad expressions of the divine feminine with animal guides as companions. Writer Angi Sullins implores us to cultivate a sanctuary for the wild woman in homes, studios, gardens, and boardrooms around the planet and in the depths of our souls.

International Day of Peace 2018

International Day of Peace PosterEach year the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on September 21. The UN General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples. The first official observance of the day was in September 1982.

The theme for 2018 is “The Right to Peace: The Universal Declaration of Human Rights at 70.”

The theme celebrates the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is a milestone document in the history of human rights. Drafted by representatives with different legal and cultural backgrounds from all regions of the world, the Declaration was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in Paris on December 10, 1948, as a common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations. The Universal Declaration—the most translated document in the world, available in more than 500 languages—is as relevant today as it was on the day that it was adopted.
