The New Year has begun. The Hundredth Monkey has abundant opportunity to be be make a difference - any difference that makes the world brighter, holier, more sane.

What does that look like for you?

Communities and TED

Big time sharing is what I see here...

Excitement and vision and growth.

I have been intrigued with the concept of the TED talks - "ideas worth spreading" - for quite a while now, and perhaps I'm just late in noticing, but there seems to be an EXPLOSION of opportunity to share insight and opportunity across the globe through this venue.  Free access to videos, you tubes, blogs and written reports abound - AND - communities are stepping forward and hosting their own TEDx events  and more, like the one right here in my own community at the old historic Colonial Theater in Phoenixville, PA in September (take a look!)

I feel so proud, and so hopeful for our world when I see community action like this!  Soothes the soul I say...and the Hundredth Monkey gets closer and closer.

Could it be you? Please take the time to share what you see going on in your own space.  The more we see the more we share.

Blessings to all....

Monkey Business

This piece of monkey advise comes from Jack Cuffari of Jack Cuffari Consulting  and Brand Smacks Blog from his guest article on DuetsBlog called In Praise of Folly: Rantings of a Right Brained Activist.

Check it out - especially if you are doing business in today's changing world.

Monkeys abound everywhere :)

Meanwhile here are some nuggets.
"In the Left Brain Only business world, all that matters are analytics, number crunching, logic systems and hard data...but as a society we are searching past information for meaning. And I for one, as a Right Brain guy and a champion of breakthrough, connective messaging, couldn’t be more excited."

"...this is especially crucial in branding, and it is high time for those of us in branding-based disciplines to remember that what drives successful branding is emotional connectivity, a very human thing. We must effectively engage all the juicy stuff:..."

" accomplish connectivity at this kind of vital level takes great, powerful narrative, an authentic amount of empathy and a degree of meaningfulness that simple data, technology and science can’t deliver alone. And getting to that place may require fun, a focus on aesthetics and altruism – all those soft, non-ROI-based values. And woe to the business that deludes itself into thinking that it can thrive in an optimum manner without fully engaging these attributes."
Ken Keyes his book on the hazards of nuclear war said something similar about our entire World. 

If you haven't already, you can click here for a free download of Keyes book. 

Perhaps the Hundredth Monkey showing up in your own business could be the tipping point we all need to see...

Shift of the Ages

Inspirational...beautiful reminders of You and I and Earth and Time...

The Hundredth Monkey shares the good news.

The upcoming Shift of the Ages film shares the Mayan Cosmo-Vision and Prophecy through the wisdom and teachings of Grandfather Cirilo Perez Oxlaj, also known as Wandering Wolf, Grand Elder of the living Maya. The film will be released in 2010, first at film festivals, then theaters, then via DVD and digital media.

The National Counsel of Elders Mayas, Xinca and Garifuna of Guatemala has an important message for the world. Their leader, Grandfather Cirilo, the protagonist of the Shift of the Ages film, discloses previously unavailable visions, concepts and ancient prophecies.

Many people know that a grand cycle of the famous Mayan Long Count Calendar ends in the 2011-2012 timeframe, but they may be misinformed about its meaning. According to Mayan prophecy, we have entered a unique period of time during which it is both safe and necessary to share this information to the public.

The Shift of the Ages film is the first official Maya discourse to the world.
