Author and Teacher Jack Allis to Present at East West Bookshop
February 2018

Jack Allis, author of Creating the New World According to the Ancient Wisdom, will offer a ceremonial presentation at East West Bookshop on Feb. 22 from 7-8:30 p.m. Admission is $20 and registration is required at East-WestBookshop.com.

This ceremonial presentation by Jack Allis is based on his new novel, Blue Sun, Red Sun, a story from Hopi prophesy about the coming of the Blue and Red Kachinas. According to Allis, this signals a paradigm shift, and opportunity to learn about creating the new world according to this ancient wisdom.

“We’ll explore this ancient wisdom and discuss what forces must come into play, plus talk about how we defeat the old paradigm matrix,” Allis says. “There’s a question here about the part that each of us plays, and we’ll address our role in this world too,” he continues, explaining that he’ll also demonstrate the power of ceremony to make this happen, with prayer, chanting and music offered for audience participation.

Allis, who practices living sustainably in the remote mountains, has written several other books and produced two DVDs. His most recent novel, Blue Sun, Red Sun, tells the epic story that follows ancient Hopi prophesy about a small sustainable community in the remote mountains, which survives economic and climate devastation to see the dawning of a new world, the world of the Fifth Sun.

Allis was in private practice in cognitive psychotherapy in Santa Barbara and Ventura from 1989 until 2001, when he moved to Wisconsin, before later moving to Shasta, California to focus on writing and teaching.

February 2018

Local chanting practitioner and teacher Gina Sala will lead a yearlong school over four immersive weekends beginning Feb. 24 and 25 at a private home in Shoreline, plus teleconferences, called the Awakening Voice Power of Love Sound School.

“This is a year long program that includes a rooted, systematic approach to gaining tools for balance and transformation, freedom and stability, awakening to bliss and peace in turbulent times,” Sala says. “I’ll guide you to use the power of your inner and outer voice to bring more wholeness, joy, empowerment,
love, to yourself, and to those around you as you are called.” Sala says that participants grow in confidence and clarity, feeling the joy of sharing, and shining their unique gifts in ways some never expected to feel. “These practices are here to help you live more freely as who you are,” she continues.

Sala, who began chanting as a child, has been leading retreats and classes for over 20 years in empowering, heart opening and healing sound practices.

November 2017

On Oct. 23, Seattle Mayor Tim Burgess joined the mayors of London, Paris, Los Angeles, Barcelona, Quito, Vancouver, Mexico City, Cape Town, Amman, and Copenhagen in signing on to the C40 Fossil-Fuel-Free Streets Declaration.

By signing the declaration, the city leaders are committing to green and healthy streets and “a future where walking, cycling, and shared mobility are how the majority of citizens move around our cities.”

Joining this initiative reaffirms Seattle’s commitment to accelerate the electrification of the city’s transportation system and transition our economy away from fossil fuels, according to city officials.

“With clean energy powering our transportation system and strong community support for bold climate action, Seattle continues to lead the way in showing how communities can reduce pollution,” said Mayor Tim Burgess. “Cities and counties will continue to drive meaningful climate action and create lasting public health improvements for our residents.”
