Goddess Summit Theme Music!!

This is the 2021 theme music to the newly resurrected archive of the 2011 Goddess Summit.

©2011-2021

Over the next few weeks TV for Your Soul and Empowering Women TV will be sharing content from the one-on-one interviews of “The Goddess Show” as well as the “Goddess Summit.” Both projects recorded in Lexington, Massachusetts in 2011. Yes – this autumn it will be 10 years since the original footage was first recorded! Sadly & frustratingly, there were technical issues with the raw footage and at one point we believed it to be unusable. Recently I revisited the footage on an old back-up drive and decided to take a chance to weave together any remnants I could to preserve the content and conversations captured. The shoots were multi-camera (4 & 5 cameras as we envisioned dynamic edits) and some cameras went hot leaving red signatures on the screen, other cameras had audio issues. There were lighting issues and the impromptu backdrops were not keen on the eyes either so we hoped to be able to use various angles to minimize distractions. With so many issues, the project while reviewed over the years by several editors, was finally set aside.

Until this summer.

I felt compelled to try again.

I knew going in it was a leap of faith. I reconciled in my heart and mind that even if I could not use all video and audio, that just maybe there would be even a single camera and audio stream intact, I could use that if for no other reason than to honor the women who participated by making some remnant of their contributions to the lengthy history of sacred feminine conversations for the world to access. And that is the best reason in the world to take on such a daunting task!

I was relieved to discover much of the footage from 2 of the cameras were intact, so I ran with what we had access to. While the original vision has been set aside, I feel confident that what has emerged from the embers is something to be treasured!

We will be scheduling a more formal Launch/Debut this fall of each program. 

“The Goddess Show” is a television talk show series of in-studio and on-location interviews – 9 in total – with some of the most dynamic female spiritual leaders in our modern era. 

The “2011 Goddess Summit” film documents a circle-style gathering of women, centered on discussions of the sacred feminine spirituality and aspects of Goddess traditions, archetypes and embodiments.

I will share more soon!

Video of our Community Television/PEG Media Forum in Pittsfield!

We had a wonderful turnout in Pittsfield last night for the Public Forum on Community Television and PEG Media! Many residents attended, showing their enthusiasm for Central Maine Media Alliance (CMMA). We have such gratitude to those who support this project! Special thanks to Ron Watson (Chair of our Sebasticook Valley region’s ad hoc advisory council) for moderating the panel discussion and Q&A.

 

Build the Beloved Community with Media Outreach

Rev. “Twinkle” Marie Manning, founder of UU Women’s Heart, member of the Unitarian Universalist Society for Community Ministries and UUWomen and Religion leadership team, speaks about the importance of multi-media outreach.

This video was inspired by All Souls Tulsa’s video featuring a member that lives in the UK, found here:

TEXT FOR TWINKLE’s VIDEO:

I LOVE THIS! Stories like this are why I use many forms of media and outreach to live into my call.

It is why we created projects like UU Talks and virtual Minerva Potlucks.

It is why so many entrepreneurial ministries are using innovative outreach and service platforms. It is why when I do consulting for groups and congregations, encouraging all to incorporate a media component, at least audio and digital-text copies of sermons and services online, but whenever possible integrate video into their ministries. (my background is television so I aim for the highest quality production possible, but seriously – – if you have an iPhone and a gmail account or Facebook account, you have all the technology you need to expand the reach of your ministry – – it may not be the highest quality, but it is a viable option) People are looking for us. Let’s help them find the kind of salvation we have to offer. Help them find a safe and fulfilling place to call their spiritual home. #UUTalks #UULife #UUWomensHeart#StandingOnTheSideOfLove  #UUWR
