AM 1 B: “Your Mask Goes on First: Making Self Care a Priority in our Service Oriented Lives” - Jean Ann Powers

As women dedicated to creating a more loving and just world, we are often met with the challenge of finding the balance between caring for oneself and caring for the world (and its people) around us. This workshop will help identify what creates our imbalance and clarify what we can do to create balance.

Musicians 2016

SJ Tucker

“Without our songs and stories, we are nothing.” S. J. Tucker has been the glad captain of her own independent music career since 2004, when she left the workaday world behind to travel the continent, singing songs for her friends full time. Named a vanguard of the Mythpunk movement and even “the face of neo-tribal Paganism” by Witches & Pagans Magazine, Tucker is the voice of lore at the campfire and the sharp laughter of modern myth. With one hand anchored in her art and the other held out to you, she is songs and stories, community and wit.

Emma's Revolution

Smart, funny and informative--like Rachel Maddow and Jon Stewart with guitars. Emma's Revolution is the duo of award-winning activist musicians, Pat Humphries & Sandy O. Called “inspiring, gutsy and rockin’”, Emma's Revolution's songs have been sung for the Dalai Lama, praised by Pete Seeger and covered by Holly Near. The duo's awards include Grand Prize in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest and, for the second year in a row, the Washington Area Music Association's Fan Favorite Award.
