Film Screening to Benefit the Tsogyal Latso Nuns of Tibet Sky Dancer Dir: Jody Kemmerer, Tibet 45 mins As inside look at the daily life and journey of Khandroma Kunzang Wangmo, an extraordinary woman who is a living example of wisdom and compassion in a world that so often seems to be lacking genuine examples of both. One of Tibetan Buddhism's great female masters, this matriarch and spiritual leader of a remote area on the Tibetan plateau is one of very few women ever to receive a position of power in Tibetan Buddhism. Even more rare, she is the descendant of two extremely significant and highly respected masters of Tibetan Buddhism. In the Minds of All Beings Dir: Sarah Abbott, Tibet 21 mins This film take us to the 8th century birthplace of Khandro Yeshe Tsogyal, the founding mother of Tibetan Buddhism and the greatest enlightened woman in Tibet. Blending legend and history, this film recounts an ancient story and shows how the wisdom and blessings of Yeshe Tsogyal have continued to the present and guides us through sacred landscapes ~ a self-arisen visionary lake, healing springs and winter blooming flowers, and a vigorous life-force sandal wood tree dating back to her birth. It also documents a community of nuns who arrived there after the Cultural Revolution to care for this revered place of the sacred feminine. https://www.facebook.com/jnanasukha?ref=ts&fref=ts www.tsogyal-latso-film.com www.jnanasukha.org

Cardinal Grand Cross in the Sky

Following Holy Week (passion, death and burial of the Pisces World Teacher) and Easter Sunday (Resurrection Festival), from April 19 to the 23, the long-awaited and discussed Cardinal Cross of Change appears in the sky, composed of Cardinal signs Aries, Libra, Cancer, and Capricorn, with planets (13-14 degrees) Uranus (in Aries), Jupiter (in Cancer), Mars (in Libra) and Pluto (in Capricorn), an actual geometrical square or cross configuration. Cardinal signs mark the seasons of change, initiating new realities.

 

Sugar: The New Tobacco?

Proposed bill would require warning labels on sugary drinks Will soda and other saccharine libations soon come with a health warning? They will if it’s up to our state senator, Bill Monning (D-Carmel). On Feb. 27, Monning proposed first-of-its-kind legislation that would require a consumer warning label be placed on sugar-sweetened beverages sold in California. SB 1000, also known as the Sugar-Sweetened Beverages Safety Warning Act, was proposed to provide vital information to consumers about the harmful effects of consuming sugary drinks, such as sodas, sports drinks, energy drinks, and sweetened teas.

    Foodie File: Red Apple Cafe

    Breakfast takes center stage at Gracia Krakauer's Red Apple Cafe Before they moved to Aptos, Gracia and her husband Dan Krakauer would visit friends in Santa Cruz County and eat at the Red Apple Café all the time.

    How would you feel about a tech industry boom in Santa Cruz?

    I feel like it would ruin the small old-town feeling of Santa Cruz. It wouldn’t be the same Surf City kind of vacation town that it is. Antoinette BennettSanta Cruz | Construction Management

     

    Trout Gulch Vineyards

    Cinsault 2012—la grande plage diurne The most popular wines on store shelves are those most generally known and available—Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, which are all superb for sure.
