6.             Winter: **Most important - set up your venues for the Summer where you'll perform - local libraries, local concerts venues, festivals, political gatherings etc.

7.             Spring: have some smaller venues you can "test drive' parts of it at.  Art galleries, small clubs and coffee houses, private homes.  Hold fun-raisers to help pay for your expenses.

8.             Summer: take it to the streets

9.             Summer:  You can create this "story' but you also want to be able to hand out information, have exhibits, engage people in a playful way.  One way to include people in the issue at hand: Talk about a law or issue that you'd like to see changed, and then have people there suggest new and better laws to take its place -- make it a community effort -- with different people adding their insights while someone synthesizes the info into an intelligent statement.

10.          Be creative and share creative ideas with others in the movement.   The creativity can only grow.

Some Archetypal Story Ideas:

  1. Water -- Maidens of the Well; the Wasteland
  2. Corruption -- The Three Golden Hairs (a young man overthrows the regime, through trickery and strategy, being smarter than the corrupt ones are.)  Any fairy tale of a poor man becoming king.
  3. Women's issues -- The Marriage of Sir Gawain and Dame Ragnell.  The issue of women's sovereignty.  
  4. Polluted air or water -- find a modern sci-fi story and ask the author for permission to create art around its theme.  
  5. Creation Stories -- we need a new creation.

Cathy Pagano is the author of a new book, "Wisdom's Daughters: How Women Can Change the World". Cathy trained at the C. G. Jung Institut-Zurich in dream interpretation, then got her M.A. in Counseling Psychology in Feminine Spirituality, and along the way became a certified Life Coach. As an astrologer and storyteller, she weaves the Cosmic Stories written in the stars and from The Bard's Grove, comments on emerging archetypal themes in movies. Cathy works with the tools of the imagination - dreams, alchemy, myths, astrology, symbolic language, storytelling, ritual - to awaken the Soul's wisdom.

I believe that Americans are called to a higher consciousness at this point in our history. We are called on to live up to our ideals and create the country our forefathers imagined. Inner consciousness needs to be acted upon for social justice.

Cathy believes that our writers and artists must take up our responsibility to create art that inspires, teaches and heals our humanity.

Cathy writes about political, psychological/spiritual, and cultural issues.
