The Human Race- Easing the burden for area non-profits, schools and community groups. The Volunteer Center will host the 2014 Human Race Kick-Off Breakfast Feb. 4th from 7:30AM-9:00AM at the Sea Cliff Inn in Aptos. All area non-profits, schools and churches are invited to register for the event and attend the breakfast to access the tools they need to launch a successful fundraising campaign for this year's Race. The Human Race is a family friendly walkathon and fun run along beautiful West Cliff Drive that attracts the community at large to raise money for the organization of their choosing. Each year over 150 non-profits, schools and churches sep out to collectively ask for community support. In 2013 more than 2,000 race day participants and over 10,000 donors raised nearly $250,000 for area organizations. The Volunteer Center provides all event support including race day organizing, publicity and promotion, agency trainings and a free website where agencies can receive donations on-line, communicate with their participants, and visually track financial progress. Agencies pay a nominal fee of $25.00 to register and receive 75-85% of all profits raised. Agencies are asked to RSVP for the Kick-off Breakfast by January 31st.

Making a Scene

As it celebrates its 30th year, Santa Cruz County’s Open Studios is one of the most successful in the country—and a make-or-break event for many local artists


A Ritual & Initiation

The Pope has come and gone, but his loving presence ignited new hope and goodness in many. While he was in NYC, China’s ruler arrived in Washington D.C. East (China) and West (Rome), meeting in the middle, under Libra, balancing sign of Right Relations. The Pope arrived at Fall Equinox. Things initiated at Fall Equinox are birthed at Winter Solstice. The Pope’s presence was a ritual, an initiation rite—like the Dalai Lama’s visits—offering prayers, teachings and blessings. Rituals anchor God’s plan into the world, initiating us to new realities, new rules. The Pope’s presence brings forth the Soul of the United States, its light piercing the veils of materialism. The Pope’s visit changed things. New questions arise, new reasons for living. A new wave of emerging life fills the air. Like a cocoon shifting, wings becoming visible. The winds are different now. Calling us to higher vision, moral values, virtues that reaffirm and offer hope for humanity. A changing of the guard has occurred. Appropriately, this is the week of the Jewish Festival of Sukkoth (’til Oct. 4), when we build temporary homes (little huts in nature), entering into a harvest of prayer and thanksgiving, understanding our fragile and impermanent existences. We are summoned to reflect upon our lives, our humanity, our nature, our spirit and each other. Offering gratitude, becoming a magnet for others. We observe. We see the needs. We love more.
