HAPPY NEW YEAR! This is IT - the ONE, the AUSPICIOUS 2012, year of the DRAGON, year of TRANSFORMATION of the PLANET, year of the end of the Mayan Calendar, year of the unique astronomical event - a very rare conjunction of the Sun with the ecliptic of the Milky Way galaxy at the Winter Solstice. This is YOUR year to take that risk, face those challenges, pursue your dreams, and know that you have a spiritual support group of Conscious Creatives right here, ready to provide a platform for your event, expression, or electronic exposition. Many blessings to our tribe!
It's been quite a journey, but we are readying to update the c3 websites so stay tuned - we will keep you posted. In the meantime, if you wish to post or blog on consciouscreatives.net, we are having technical difficulties with that site, so please use www.consciouscreativity.ning.com instead - that URL is fully functioning. Please forgive this inconvenience, and we look forward to your events, posts, blogs...
Two Big Annual Events
GATE, the Global Alliance for Transformational Entertainment, is a nonprofit professional membership community dedicated to fostering the creation, development and distribution of entertainment and media that enlighten, inform and transform worldviews.
GATE’s two big annual events – both fundraisers -- are coming up on February 4th in Beverly Hills, CA:
GATE 2 is a gala celebration of transformational entertainment and media, with presenters, performers and special surprises to entertain, inspire and inform. Featured presenters include Eckhart Tolle, Jim Carrey, Don Miguel Ruiz, Marianne Williamson, Jean Houston, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Edward James Olmos, Duane Elgin, and many others. The emcee is comedian Louie Anderson.
The GATE Transformational Story Conference is a working session focused on transformational storytelling and the transformational arc for authors, screenwriters, producers, directors -- anyone interested in the transformational genre. Featured presenters include James Bonnet, Drew Dellinger, Jean Houston, Kurt Engfehr, Jeremy Kagan, Mark Matousek, Louie Schwartzberg, Norman Seeff and many others.
Both events are at the Saban Theatre on Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills. The Story Conference runs from 9-AM to 5-PM. GATE 2 takes place from 6:30 to 11:00 in the evening. Complete details and ticket purchase information can be found at www.gatecommunity.org.

These will both be extraordinary events and we look forward to seeing you there!
Thank you to all who participated in our wonderful MIGRATIONS multi-media event last November. The soundtracks are available at the Art of Sound gallery. Beautiful large prints of the animation stills can be ordered by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. Here is a condensed version of the 80 minute immersive experience that was presented in the dome: http://vimeo.com/34576488 True to the concept, we have designed MIGRATIONS as an evolving project that will feature new imagery and music each time we present it and a new version of the experience will be held in May, so stay tuned!
