  • Peace Talks - Globetrotting Activists
    wherever you re engaging in it and that it has an effect much broader than the one act that you re doing And so what we re committed to doing when we do our international work is to come back to our communities Share the experience share any wisdom gained and be able to draw analogies and practical advice from what s going on around the world Some listeners might say that trips like these to North Korea or Iraq are really meddling and you have no business intervening because it complicates diplomatic efforts that the United States is trying to do Your response Sirotkin I think the real problem we face is a lack of interest and apathy about international issues When these trips go forward if anything they are often exposing various cover ups various misperceptions or other things that have been perpetrated either by the government or the news media at the time So while I m sympathetic with the notion that I could interfere with what the U S government is going to do on a particular case I really don t think that I can through my one action I think that the term patriotism is really about not only caring about our country but the world at large To be a true patriot means to be involved to listen and to step out and help where you feel you can help Governments and corporations will continue to do what they do and the only way we can get them to listen sometime is to step up and do something And that s the core of democracy Kathleen O Malley That is the core It s foundational to this country s beliefs dissent and having different opinions If people aren t presented with the different opinions then how can you discover the truth How can you develop a policy if you don t have all the different perspectives I m troubled by the need for the question even I think it s so important that people travel and get as much information as possible What did your trips accomplish O Malley I do know that for the people I ve talked to it s given them a different perspective from what they re hearing in the media I m sure there are many different perspectives but I know this one is not being reported very widely What my goal is is not only to stand in solidarity against the war and for the Iraqi people but to bring back a perspective from there so I talk about it as much as I can to as many people as I can For me it s important to put a human face on the picture in Iraq or occupied Palestine That these are human beings just like you and I and if I talk about the mother who s lost her son or the soldier that is terrified at a checkpoint I really believe that the American

  • Peace Talks - Artist As Activist / Kathryn Blume
    ll have a cookie and watch TV You know it s very easy for us to fall into that place So what is the creative s role in activism Blume I think for people who have cultivated their creativity as the primary focus of their lives They have the capability to imagine the world as it could be and then to express that imagining for other people without getting caught up in the practicality issues When others say well how could that be possible because this this and this needs to be in place and then this needs to happen over there We the artists say You know what I m just going to provide the vision of what s possible In THE ACCIDENTAL ACTIVIST Kathryn Blume Co Founder of the Lysistrata Project recounts the story of her astonishing inability to save the world In a show that s part fact part fantasy part caffeine induced madness this irreverent and irrepressible performer imagines how she might possibly make a difference on a planet that couldn t care less Laced with self depricating wit impossibly optimistic socio political observations and deft sketches of determined defiant women from around the world THE ACCIDENTAL ACTIVIST is one lone person s on going search for a good reason to get out of bed THE STORY IN GREATER DETAIL It s November 2002 Kathryn an exuberant articulate frustrated and very funny out of work actress and environmentalist with gargantuan dreams of both stardom and world salvation gets particularly hot under the collar about the Bush administration s planned war on Iraq She casts about unsuccessfully for a way to both jump start her career and forestall the impending war On the verge of total surrender she unintentionally kicks off a global act of theatrical dissent

    cybermesa com BOOKS RECOMMENDED BY OUR GUESTS NONVIOLENT COMMUNICATION A Language of Compassion by Marshall Rosenburg NONVIOLENT COMMUNICATION SUMMARY FROM CNVC WEBSITE The purpose of Nonviolent Communication SM NVC is to strengthen our ability to inspire compassion from others and to respond compassionately to others and to ourselves NVC guides us to reframe how we express ourselves and hear others by focusing our consciousness on what we are observing feeling needing and requesting We are trained to make careful observations free of evaluation and to specify behaviors and conditions that are affecting us We learn to hear our own deeper needs and those of others and to identify and clearly articulate what we are wanting in a given moment When we focus on clarifying what is being observed felt and needed rather than on diagnosing and judging we discover the depth of our own compassion Through its emphasis on deep listening to ourselves as well as others NVC fosters respect attentiveness and empathy and engenders a mutual desire to give from the heart The form is simple yet powerfully transformative While it is taught through the use of a concrete model and is referred to as a process of communication or a language of compassion Nonviolent Communication is more than a process or a language As our cultural conditioning often leads our attention in directions unlikely to get us what we want NVC serves as an ongoing reminder to focus our attention on places that have the potential to yield what we are seeking a flow between ourselves and others based on a mutual giving from the heart Founded on language and communication skills that enable us to remain human even under trying conditions Nonviolent Communication contains nothing new all that has been integrated into NVC has been known for centuries The intent is to remind us about what we already know about how we humans were meant to relate to one another and to assist us in living in a way that concretely manifests this knowledge The use of NVC does not require that the persons with whom we are communicating be literate in NVC or even motivated to relate to us compassionately If we stay with the principles of NVC with the sole intention to give and receive compassionately and do everything we can to let others know this is our only motive they will join us in the process and eventually we will be able to respond compassionately to one another While this may not happen quickly it is our experience that compassion inevitably blossoms when we stay true to the principles and process of Nonviolent Communication Adapted from Nonviolent Communication A Language of Compassion by Marshall B Rosenberg Ph D PuddleDancer Press available from CNVC MORE ABOUT PEACE TALKS Peace Talks is a series of public radio programs that investigates how people can make peace and pursue nonviolent solutions to conflict within themselves their families and communities and the world In addition to the KUNM half

  • Peace Talks - Dept. of Peace?
    awareness of the need for peace make peace an overarching concern in our society by creating a department which would inform programs at every level of society I think War in Iraq makes it more likely that there s a future for a Department of Peace because people see that our nation through its leadership has the capacity to unleash aggressive war And I think it s alarming many people when they find that a nation has a lack of anchor points to insure that the tendencies toward war are tamed at the bureaucratic and administrative levels of a government A Department of Peace would give a president options A Secretary of Peace would be in on the cabinet meetings talking about the urgency of resolving matters in a nonviolent way and coming up with programs that do just that So war s not inevitable Peace can be inevitable if we work towards it it s just that right now we re not working toward peace Our government is working toward war Heather Wilson Republican Representative from New Mexico No I don t think a Department of Peace is necessary We have a Secretary of State we have a Secretary of Defense we have the US Agency for International Development I think we probably have it covered But Dennis Kucinich is running for President I guess he has to come up with something Steve Pearce Republican Representative from New Mexico I would suspect that a Department of Peace is not going to get a lot of excitement at least on the Republican side I think that Secretary of State Powell has done a very good job of bringing the negotiations on Iraq to the point that I was comfortable that we had every initiative that would arrive at a peaceful solution here So I would be skeptical of a Department of Peace that gives the impression that we re sitting over here as military rogues trying to export capitalism Those things just aren t factual They re not true Chris Griscom founder of The Light Institute and The Nizhoni School For Global Consciousness I m not saying that we can t have laws and heads of state and structures like that we can But there cannot be peace unless we learn what it is to be human at a higher octave But you know what People are spiritual in their hearts and it s not about religions It s about life and death and connection and communication And that s the crux of our problem right now We need to come back the mystery of life and our willingness to say we want a better life What s going to give us a better life The capacity to be safe Suzanne Kryder But what would you say to folks who say we re safe by using a defense system that costs 400 billion a year People who say it s natural to fight It s natural to fight but it

    back to Minnesota and she s going Man What could we do and she asked the students what could we possibly do They were taking an art class where they were learning how to make homemade paper So somebody got the idea the kids were anywhere from six years old to 17 of making paper and selling it homemade paper and selling it to buy a cow So the kids made a ton of paper and they sold all this paper By the time they were done they had enough money to buy four cows and feed them for an entire year It was like these are kids six years old doing something to save the life of somebody halfway around the world who they ve never even met and I thought if a six year old can do that what could I do It was a very defining moment It happened right at the time of the Peace Ambassador training and I thought my goodness You know I was a little embarrassed that I didn t do more So I got together with some of the other members the graduates of Peace Ambassadors and we organized a peace conference I think a lot of people are hungry for more meaning in their life They have a desire to make a difference but they don t really know how So when Nan told me that story it was like I realized we need to tell the stories of peace We need to be telling the stories of hero s who inspire us I know that when we watch the news a lot of times it doesn t feel very inspiring and it doesn t feel like it enriches our lives but these stories do So we thought well we ll tell the stories of peace We ll have a peace conference and not only that but we believe that change happens face to face and it happens when you take action Actually I was pretty broke at the time The economy had really hit my income and so I had a garage sale and I sold a bunch of junk from my garage that was gathering dust and I took that money and I placed a down payment on the auditorium the hall It s called Wheeler Hall at UC Berkeley and so together with my other Peace Ambassador graduates we made this conference We started inviting speakers and we held it on 9 11 weekend because we knew that on that weekend everybody would be watching TV and all they d be seeing is the falling Twin Towers We wanted to send out a message that we have a choice We don t have to continue the cycle of war and violence that there are other options It turned out great The speakers were fantastic and it really created a magic moment So the question really was what s next right I knew I had to try solve certain problems Like for example people rose up and literally stopped the Vietnam War They actually got two President s out of office because of it and they were very successful Then when the war was ended they all went home and raised their kids See I think they forgot what they had done right and then next thing you know we have more wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and so forth So my sense of it was we have to make peace sustainable It has to be something that people do every month or every day or that it s a part of our everyday life and the only way that will ever happen is if it s bite sized We make peace in bite sized pieces that anybody could do Then the next thing I was thinking is that it s got to be grassroots It has to be something where people get together face to face I don t believe we ll ever have peace as long as we leave that job to governments because they re not good at it They re very good at war but they re not very good at peace What we have to do is get the average person to take a share of ownership in peace So that was why we thought maybe we should do another conference but we should do it every month or something So we got to thinking what if we could have 100 peace conferences you know two per state That would be 100 not counting international right So one of our projects is 100 peace conferences and the only way it could really happen is if you make it bite sized so that anybody could do it Let s suppose that people want to have friends over in their living room for a potluck That s very inexpensive and we d give them DVDs of the speakers that we would have had at a major conference and they can watch them and talk about them and debate about them We could take the workshops instead of having it all happen in a two day conference they could do one a month and then work on it for the next 30 days So we could have 12 workshops It could literally be a one year or a 12 month peace conference and if we had hundreds of these it could be in a living room or in a school or a library or even a university or a church So that I think is the direction we re going next is to take the Imagined Peace Conference the brand the mold and to multiply it into hundreds of baby peace conferences And that actually happened as a result of the think tank which after I graduated from Peace Ambassadors I started a think tank called the Live Peace Institute and people can come to our website which is being built now but it s going to

    that is a caregiver that can be an overachiever that likes to have a sense of control Ingles A fixer Adair That s right a fixer It s the typical wounded healer nurse archetype that is a very interesting framework to learn from for me in my life I really saw a lot of that stuff come up I think that in terms of peacemaking for after that experience what I ve learned is that I have even less fear of death on one hand because I could feel what it was like being at that level of deep peace as my body was changing On the other hand I got to see my raw humanity and I got to see how difficult vulnerability was for me in those times when things were slipping away and I was trying to maintain a sense of control about who I was in the world For me a lot of that now has to do with just accepting what is even my own humanity even the fact that yes I do have these tendencies and this will be my life s work Rather than having the expectation that I will die perfectly it s more about accepting the fact that I will make mistakes or it won t always look pretty as I move through my humanity and really allowing and working on vulnerabilities I think that s probably one of the greatest things that I can do at least for myself based on my wiring Ingles You re talking about forgiveness too Adair Well and I think for me sometimes forgiveness feels like something has been wrong and I think that s how hard I have to work at this to actually think of it more in terms of acknowledging what is accepting what is that even in my raw imperfection there is beauty in that Back to the practical issues what I would like to say is that there is a document called The Five Wishes that is actually a legal document in the State of New Mexico and Denys recently shared at a conference Advanced Care Planning about the Five Wishes So I ll turn that over to you Denys Cope The Five Wishes I think is the most comprehensive of all the end of life documents out there simply because it includes everything It has the living will and you get to talk about what you want done for you when you are faced with impending death Do you want to be put on a ventilator Do you want IVs Do you want heroic measures and if so details of what those would be It also asks who you want as your durable power of attorney which normally those are two separate documents The durable power of attorney is the person who will make medical decisions for you in the case of incapacity You certainly need to have had a conversation with whoever you appoint to talk about what your wishes are Within The Five Wishes you go through what you would like and then you get to talk about how you want to be cared for not just what you don t want but what you do want You get to talk about if you would like somebody there or the type of music you might want if any etc I have to say there is a part of me that has talked about how The Five Wishes for me was clearly written by a living person and not a dying person because it talks about how people may want massage want their hands held or constant presence but what I ve seen over time is that as we are truly in our dying process we want to be less interacted with We may want presence in the room but sometimes we don t even want that The minute somebody leaves the room somebody goes out to answer the door or fix a meal that s when we can get out of our bodies So The Five Wishes document is often filled out from the eyes of the living who project what they might want when they re dying but the dying may really have a different perspective of what they want But The Five Wishes is a way of looking at all the aspects of dying the legal the personal the familial for want of a better word If we don t have a blood family that we want involved we certainly have our family the people we re in closest relationships with How do we want them to be with us and how do we want our community to be there It covers all those aspects It s one document You sign it and you have it witnessed There has to be a witness for it It doesn t have to be notarized Then that can be copied and be distributed I am actually the power of attorney for one woman and it s in her hospital chart So whenever she gets readmitted to the hospital that comes into her current chart and it always stands as a legal document She doesn t have to fill them out over and over again You can have copies wherever you are give one to your physician give one to each family member It becomes very comprehensive and compact Thron So it s sort of a workbook I think that you can really work it through The one thing I was thinking about is that you go through that whole process I think anticipating things or trying to anticipate things makes a lot of sense and then you have to accept that it is going to be what it is and that in the given moment you may not want that to be that way and so you have to be able to adapt to it as it goes along too Ingles It sounds like you all would be
