San Felipe Pueblo Feast Day and Corn Dance May 1st

Monday, April 30th, 2012
San Felipe Pueblo is the place to be on May 1st, for a true cultural experience of Native American drumming and dancing. Along the banks of the Rio Grande, San Felipe pueblo is about half an hour north of Albuquerque and 45 minutes south of Santa Fe, off 1-25. Their annual Feast Day dances start around  10 am and go until about 5 pm, with a long lunch break.
It’s wonderful just to walk along the river’s edge under the big cottonwoods. Be sure to visit the church right in the center of the pueblo with its striking gold and black tile work.
If you can’t make May 1st, Jemez pueblo and Cochiti are having corn dances on May 3rd.  Read all about it here,

New Moon in Taurus: time to nurture and protect your dreams

New Moon in Taurus

New Moon in Taurus

The next two weeks’ Taurus new moon cycle (April 21st -May 5th) highlights doing things that produce something concrete.  For many that might be putting in a garden, moving, developing better living systems, etc. A person can see what they have to go through and what they must do to produce results.  People naturally know how to get things done when the new moon is in Taurus.

Old souls with lots of practice are likely to begin projects in this new moon, a chance to bring forth a polished and beautiful offering.
However, distractions abound. In the air now and in the near future is a lot of indecision, unrest and unquiet. The energy is high and erratic. It can take fierce focus to stay on schedule.   Creative success can be like a hunt: a wise owl with eyes on its prey, centering laser-like eye-beams of energy on what he wants.
With any production, assume its  success. Have the attitude that you’re creating success and you’re seeing it. Don’t be doubtful in this cycle, but act out what you want to happen.
Personal Guidance: Try to ignore emotionally charged situations if at all possible (I’m right, you’re wrong).  Paid attention to, they can produce a lot of misery now.
Personal healing journeys can bring up a lot of emotions but the healing tends to be deep, thorough and complete.
It’s best in this period to just connect to the love and the loves in your life–only that deserves attention.
The new moon in Taurus is ruled by Venus, suggesting we should be graceful and generous in anything we’re beginning  and with people we meet.  Venus says, “Smile a lot,  and give more that you take.”  This  strategy can work wonders in the coming months.

Earth Day Extravaganza at Chavez Center in Santa Fe this Sunday

Earth Day Santa Fe 2012

Earth Day Santa Fe 2012

There is truly something for everyone this Sunday at Genoveva Chavez’s Earth Day extravaganza. You could get a free sapling tree, dance outdoors to the rhythms of a live West African band, watch the movie “An Inconvenient Truth”, take home a couple of recycling bins, do a recycled art project (for kids and teens), and learn to exercise with hula hoops! This and more will be going on from 9:30 am to 5 pm at the Genoveva Chavez Center in Santa Fe, off Rodeo Road. It’s the best free show in town!

If you can’t make it this weekend, there’s an Earth Day celebration next weekend at La MontanitaCoop, 913 West Alameda in the Solana Shopping Center, Saturday the 28st from 10 am to 3pm. Four bands are scheduled. Here’s a description from the Coop: “All are welcome to come, enjoy and participate in these FREE community gatherings. At all the Co-op spring festivals you can expect a wonderfully inspiring time with information and education booths from dozens of environmental, social and economic justice organizations and local farmers. You can purchase seedlings, drought resistant plants, beautiful art from fine local artists and crafts people and enjoy inspiring performances from some of our favorite local artists and, of course, great Co-op food.”

Santa Fe Institute’s Intuition Lecture Frustrates Intuitive

There was a Freudian-slip like typo in the Pasatiempo advertisement for this event. The headline read: “Appealing to Institutions: why we can’t get along without them”. (It should have read:  Appealing to Intuitions: why we can’t get along without them”.) Perhaps no one could believe in the pairing of The Santa Fe Institute and “intuitions”. “Institutions” sounds so much better! If I’d seen this before going, I would have probably had the psychic flash the lecture was going to stick to the dismissive party line.

Speaking of intuition, I wonder if last night’s guest speaker on Intuition took a deep breath before speaking, to tune into her audience and get a feel of their level of shared comprehension? Concepts and descriptions were put in a way that tired my brain in no time, which happens when I’m confronted with too many allusions to a knowledge base I don’t have, or language that relies heavily on unfamiliar schematics. I short-circuited after about 20 minutes and got up to leave.

I did retain Ms. Rebecca Goldstein’s initial description of intuition, though: A person can feel struck by the truth of something as if they’re struck by a bolt of lightning, so sure their intuition is true and real. An intuition engenders a state of belief  that “floats above reason.”  Another person can have their own intuition about an opposite thing, and it also strikes them like a bolt of lightning; they know it to be true. In other words, if it’s an intuition, “p equals p”, and also,” p does not equal p.”

To me this is not a description of intuition, but of one feature of intuition, the distinct felt-sense of intuition, where “you just know it’s true.”  This one aspect is fairly irrelevant given the real reason anyone talks about intuition: the phenomenon of being able to know things. The common knowledge that communication takes place in incomprehensible ways.

It’s also all  too easy to liken Ms. Goldstein’s example to delusional behavior, or the state a knight (“just knowing God’s on his side”) is likely to be in who joins the Crusades. One religious zealot could be sure that p equals p, and another zealot could be dead sure p equals not-p.

I assume the speaker is intuitive and has experiences of directly receiving knowledge or she wouldn’t be interested in the subject. Why not address that most interesting potential in a more respectful and meaningful-to-people description of intuition, at the very beginning?

Pueblo Dances Easter Sunday in Northern New Mexico

Spring Desire in New Mexico

Spring Desire in New Mexico

Visiting Santa Fe? You can easily fulfill a love of cultural experiences and  natural beauty this weekend if you are in Northern New Mexico. There are dances Sunday, and some even Monday at San Idelfonso, Nambe, and Zia pueblos. You can read all about it here, just scroll down to April to get the details: http://www.coyotesgame.com/NAevents.html

Generally, dances begin around ten and there’s a longish break for lunch, and they end around 5 pm.
One rule at dances, is that visitors don’t talk amongst themselves while the dance is going on. You might see people talking, and not realize that it’s not all right.
All the wonderful scents of spring are coming on now…it’s a beautiful drive to any of these pueblos from Santa Fe or Albuquerque, with fruit trees in bloom, and mountain views. The Rio Grande is close by.
