Saturday, September 12th, 3:30pm: Pelican Dreams

Sundance-and-Emmy-Award-winning filmmaker Judy Irving (with her first film since the widely acclaimed and loved “The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill”) follows a wayward California brown pelican from her “arrest” on the Golden Gate Bridge into care at a wildlife rehabilitation facility, and from there explores pelicans’ nesting grounds, Pacific coast migration, and survival challenges of these ancient birds, sometimes referred to as the flying dinosaurs. The film is about wildness, and asks the following questions: how close can we get to a wild animal without taming or harming it? Why do we need wildness in our lives, and how can we protect it? PELICAN DREAMS, stars “Gigi” (for Golden Gate) and Morro (a backyard pelican with an injured wing).

  • Our "In the Name of Magic" workshop was amazing!  So much learning and healing took place!  I am hopeful that others who attended this seminar will also comment; we are already looking at next year's workshop!!

    The ConsciousNest Community will continue to offer workshops like "In the Name of Magic", our three aromatherapty workshops, and other workshops to educate and illuminate.
