    Part 4: Close Up Radio Welcomes Back Artist Kimberly Berg

    in Art

    Cadyville, NY - Kimberly Berg is a male feminist advocate and award-winning artist who wants women to be cognizant of their history during Neolithic times when they women were revered which is enchantingly depicted in his art.
    Kimberly was inspired by Layne Redmon’s book When the Drummers were Women when he first learned that in Neolithic times women were well-regarded, valued, and played a vital role in the functioning of society.  His awe- inspiring paintings reflect that magnificent historical period, one that Kimberly aspires to revive. He envisions a time when women can once again be the front runners and gain the same political equality as men.  According to Kimberly patriarchal ideas were created to allow men to take a superior role and discourage women from aspiring to leadership positions.
    His art proudly reflects women as highly independent, spiritual and in perfect harmony with nature. Through his art women are shown as authentically compassionate. Their bodies are drawn to represent integrity, nobility, and graciousness.
    With the rise of today’s women’s movement and feminine spirituality the future looks extremely promising, according to Kim.  During pre- patriarchal times women were female respected and valued and that’s how it should be today.
    He encourages all women to be fearless and confident.
    He sees things from a historical perspective, thousands of years ago. Patriarchy has not been forever, only 5000 years old and before that we were a female-friendly culture. Life was good when all were equal So if it could be done then, it can certainly be accomplished once again.

    Join host Tom Riddell and co-host Teri Brown as they welcome author Michael Kennedy to The Writers Lounge. Sit back and relax as Michael discusses what it's like to be a writer and he will also talk to us about his book: Time Conjurer
    Kenny Lawson is a Philadelphia psychiatrist who has reoccurring dreams of a girl in an ice cream shop. These dreams of her have been going on since he was a child. These nighttime visions have served as a premonition and one night the little girl is the subject of a nightmare, where she is hunted down and presumed dead. Kenny sees it as a message to him that someone close to him may die. He immediately seeks comfort and advice from his grandmother, Nana, who he sees as wise and important to solving his nighttime issues because she also practices Hoodoo- a spiritual practice created by enslaved African Americans. Nana believes that the girl in his dreams is actually her sister, Delilah, who went missing in 1955. She also entrusts Kenny with a secret that she recently discovered using hoodoo. She is able to time-travel, or "fly" to meet up with loved ones in the past using photographs.

    Wanda's Picks Radio: Gender, Sacred Sex& Healing

    in Art

    Part I proceeds Part III  In querying the text, Sacred Pleasure: Sex, Myth and the Politics of the Body (1995) by Riane Eisler, Ph.D., I spend too much time wading through Western dominator theories. The land is too far from the shore for safety. I do not swim. I respect water, and its power to interrupt and separate my spiritual home from me. If I board the ship, I am stuck, so I keep my body safe and stay away from floating ideas (with muscles). Eventually, they--these ways predicated on fallacy or untruth, will all evaporate and I will walk free again.  I didn't know until looking at the copyright information that Eisler and David Loye did create The Partnership Way, a workbook, which might answer some of my questions here.
