By Heather Salmon

This Valentines Day there is a global initiative calling for 1 billion people to take a stand to end violence against women and children. Approximately 1 of 3 women will or has been raped, or beaten during her lifetime.  Violence is a global issue and can strike women from any background anywhere and includes date rape, emotional abuse, female genital mutilation, stalking, human trafficking, domestic abuse, and same sex relationship violence.

Women most often experience violence at the hands of someone they know and can be left with deep emotional, mental and physical scars.  Violence against women not only affects the victim but the whole community.  With a population of 7 billion people 1 in 3 means that staggering 1 billion women are violated!

One Billion Rising is the inspiration of Eve Ensler playwright/founder of the award winning Vagina Monologues, and is a global activist movement that has been growing over the past 15 years.  In 2012, over 5,800 V-Day benefit events took place in the U.S. and around the world, educating millions of people about the reality of violence against women and girls.. To date, the V-Day movement has raised over $90 million and educated millions about the issue of violence against women and the efforts to end it.  International educational, media and PSA campaigns have been created, shelters opened, and over 14,000 community-based anti-violence programs and safe houses funded in Democratic Republic of Congo, Haiti, Kenya, South Dakota, Egypt and Iraq.

This V-Day women and those who love them are joining forces world wide and creating events, dances, strikes and rising up to demand an end to this violence.   Join or create V-Day ONE BILLION RISING today and SAY NO to violence against women and girls.

Salmon say that “studies have demonstrated that it quantifiable shifts have been measured in places where people have gathered to pray and focus on crime rates being reduced for example.”  Science has shown that it takes the square root of 1% of a population to focus together to create such a measurable shift.  For the planet that is around 700,000.  It is a goal of the Virtual New Moon Ceremony to have 700,000 people tuning in every month by the end of 2013 to focus in prayer and for inspiration from a diverse group of special guests representing many cultures and spiritual practices.

Black Swan Temple’s

Total Lunar Eclipse Mystic Mass with Astronomy and Astrology Talk and Gathering Under the Stars

Monday, April 14th at 7pm

On the evening of Monday April 14th/15th we will experience the first in a rare series of 4 total eclipses called a tetrad  that will be viewable from North America.  The height of the eclipse will last 78 minutes peaking in it’s totality at 9:06 pm HAST, with almost exact alignment of the Earth and the Moon occurring at 9:46 pm HAST and emerging out of the shadow at 11:33 pm HAST.

Unlike Solar Eclipses, this Lunar Eclipse is completely and safely viewable by the naked eye or with binoculars or a small telescope.  These lunar eclipses have been named as Blood Moons because sunlight bent by our atmosphere around the curvature of the Earth the Moon will appear as having a coppery glow and will present the illusion of seemingly glowing from within by its own light.

Join us for this Lunar Eclipse ritual and enjoy and evening that will begin with a multimedia talk and presentation on the anatomy, astronomy and astrology of the eclipse and the terad with Priestess Heather Salmon and Rev. Donny Regal.

We will then open sacred space through a sound healing invocation and music and set our intentions in a way that makes best use of this rare energy portal.

From here we will move outside and observe the eclipse while we share music, stories and food by the bon fire!

Taro Burgers & Fritters

Heather’s Gourmet Taro Burger & Fritters w/ Pesto Sauce Recipe

So, we were gifted with these four beautiful Taro Roots and I went to town creating this gourmet vegan gluten free super food recipe! Mind you, this made enough for over 20 people so I’ll be taking some to our Farmers Union Artists Committee Meeting on Sunday!

The Taro in Hawai’i Nei is considered a “canoe plant’ that was brought to the islands by the Polynesians in their canoes many years ago!   It is also known as Kalo is believed to have the greatest life force of all foods.  From early times, kalo was the primary food of the Hawai`i people, supplemented by other principal and traditional foods: breadfruit (`ulu), sweet potato (`uala), yams, greens, ferns, fruit, fish and seaweed (limu).

Traditionally Hawaiian’s mash it up into what is called poi!  This recipe is not at all traditional Hawaiian!  But Taro is also found in the West Indies where my family was from, so you are getting a bit of a gourmet world cuisine recipe here!  Enjoy!

All of the produce was local, I’ve “*” what’s not!

Taro
Onions
Garlic*
Carrots
Leeks
Zucchini
Chillis
kale
cilantro
dandelion
boc choy
ginger
turmeric
Pulp from juiced veggies
Pulp from Almond Milk*
Purple Sunrise – Organic Ancient Grains (Quinoa, Amaranth, Chia)*
Organic Seeds (Millet, Flax)*
Salt*
Olive & Coconut Oil*

Process:
1. Skin and cube taro and boil for an hour then mash it up! Leave some chunks! This is now called “poi”. I didn’t have a masher so I used the back of a ladle! Great work out! DO NOT put it in your vitamix I almost killed mine! :-0

2. Cook quinoa

3. Dice and saute veggies in olive or coconut oil

4. Slowly incorporate sauteed veggies into the poi mixture.

5. Then add the cooked quinoa

6. Add salt to taste. Can also add chili powder.

7. To make the mixture less gooey I then added pulp that I had in the freezer that was made from vegetables that had been juiced and some almond meal pulp. This stiffened it up a bit. I also found that adding ground flax meal to the patties as I was creating them was a good idea to dry them out a bit!

8. You can then turn these into patties and pan fry in olive or coconut oil or bake.

9. To make the fritters, which added a really great crust I rolled the patties in Purple Sunrise Breakfast cereal which is a powdered whole grain super food mixture. Then I pan fried them. This gave them an amazing crispy texture reminiscent of Southern Corn Fritters! Which got me to thinking that it would have also been amazing to add organic corn kernels and jalapenos to the recipe!

Turmeric Pesto Sauce
(made by Donny 🙂

* Turmeric
* Basil
* Garlic
* Lemons
* Olive Oil
* Salt
* Water
