Maryann Williamson delivered the most empowering message for women, declaring that we are living in a different world, the benchmark of a new awakening. “Humanity can be in charge of it’s own destiny, where we go from one way of looking to another. It is a very important thing that is happening here today, when people claim it, when people are willing to embrace the vision, stand in that space and say……..This era shall be born and it shall be born within me. This is one of those amazing magic moments in history. Now, men as well as women are claiming birth as an imagery. Men are now borrowing women’s intuition.”

Williamson continued, “There’s something we need to explain to the men, it hurts like hell. Let us not kid ourselves, labor is hard. We are going to have to invoke our courage. If you’re going to stand for all the things people are talking about today, true sustainability, true peace on earth, love is the bottom line. We are going to need to know we have a support system of our community”…. because outside these rooms, we are going to have extreme opposition…….Before anyone gives birth to what is possible, they have to go through the struggles of what has been before. When we give birth to something new, we have to die to what has come before. We don’t have to be perfect, we have the unwavering, steadfast support of our community to make this a reality.


The entertainment was electrifying, especially the music, and the dance. One of the most outstanding performances, Phaedroid, with Phaedra and Android Jones that combined computer art images cast on a screen ,where a female dancer wrapped in white cloth was moving in front of the screen, and music from an otherworldly source created a new art form. Andrew Jones, a.k.a. Android Jones, is a U.S. visual artist working in the fields of concept art for movies and video-games, fashion design, body painting, illustration and digital performances. He started his career with George Lucas at Industrial Light and Magic, worked as the only North American concept artist for the Japanese gaming company Nintendo and became creative director for the entertainment development company Massive Black Inc., of which he is a founder.
