Held Sunday, May 21st, 2017 Mary reviewed the "why" of Wild Women Society (in case you missed it, the answer is: the Divine Feminine, the magic of women supporting each other, love, relationships, and connecting: self-care!). She also introduced her board for the WWS as a newly formed 501c3 nonprofit organization (Della Rae, Lisa Bakke, Barb Mathey, and Emily Aldridge). A little channeling of Bill Nye for her science demonstration The Pyramid and the Pool (you can find the original on YouTube) and circling around the theme word. Emily Aldridge stepped up to share a letter from our 'Wild Child' Amara. With the stunning work of Sarah Goodnough as a backdrop, Stephanie Scelza (with Mark Bowden) brought her beautiful and original music! Then Bev Martin gave us some amazing tid-bits on 'Enough', delivered with her calming presence and lovely voice. Goody Boxes, Yummy food, bubbly, Wild-tinis, and loads of Raffle items made for another fabulous gathering of Wild Women!
Guest Speaker Bev Martin grew up in the Republic of South Africa and had experiences she could not explain. Like visits with family members who had passed onto the next life and ‘downloads’ of health and other information from people around her. She went on to study psychology, film, and theater arts. After graduating, she worked creating educational media for an international bank. Now her deepest joy is to give people who are hungry for greater meaning and spiritual solutions access to the answers within themselves – and the feeling of deep satisfaction that comes from connecting with their thoughts, wisdom, and true ideas.
Guest Musician Stephanie Scelza was born to a pack of wolves and left howling on the doorstep of a human family in 1983. Her family realized she was different when she started singing before she could speak, and whisked her off to vocal lessons at the age of ten. She narrowly escaped a life of professional opera-singing when she found a guitar, quit her studies, and eloped with a band.
Suspicious of human classifications, Stephanie is hard-pressed to describe her music as a blend of funk, blues, and folk. She has tricked a wide array of respectable human musicians into playing music with her, none of whom she can remember by name, because that kind of thing isn’t important to wolves.
Guest Artist Sarah Goodnough:
I am inspired by connecting people to an idea, thought or message.My work is a stand for creating possibility, finding beauty and awareness in all things, and developing self actualization. I am in gratitude for all the gifts from the divine universe and to be living a life I love.
I choose to depict in my work the natural beauty of the world. I also draw upon the internal beauty and positive human spirit that dwells within each of us. I believe in staying present to life and to take each day as a gift, rather than focusing on thoughts that can burden and entrap us. This is the message I want to convey to the world around me.
