Statement on Free Speech
Our constitution and laws encourage the freest possible exchange of opinions, ideas, and information. In part, that recognizes our worth and dignity as human beings. To forbid us to speak our minds demeans us and makes us more like slaves or robots than citizens of a free country. But as important as freedom of expression is for us as individuals, it is perhaps more important to society at large.

Can We Change the World
with the Power of Our Minds?
The US is in Big Trouble. Troops in 150 countries are fighting wars for profit. Our rights and freedoms are eroding at an alarming rate. Government at every level routinely invents and enforces unconstitutional laws/rules. The economy stinks. And our minds and bodies are being manipulated for the benefit of an elite few. But what can we do about it? The darkness seems too big to fight. And it's difficult to escape or opt out of the corruption.
Bringing fresh optimism to the New Year, author Pat O'Connell will talk about the philosophy and physics of powerful methods that enable all of us to shape the world into a better place. She will outline manifestation tools such as prayer and the law of attraction, and will discuss ways of objectively tracking our impact on global consciousness. Help launch an experiment to make a difference. Come prepared to tell us what "the perfect world" looks like to you.
