A charmed life

Syracuse native Jan Phillips has presented with Jane Goodall, dined with Ram Dass, sung with Pete Seeger and worked with Mother Teresa.

Yes, in the pursuit of social justice for all, Jan has lived a charmed life.

The co-founder of the Syracuse Cultural Workers — a progressive publisher committed to peace, sustainability, social justice, feminism and multiculturalism — returns to the Salt City to conduct a workshop on Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 1 and 2, at All Saints Church, 112 Lancaster Place; 472-9934. Phillips will speak at Masses and facilitate a four-hour workshop in the afternoon.

Art and activism

Phillips’ quest has led her into and out of a religious community, across the U.S. on a Honda motorcycle, and around the world on a one-woman peace pilgrimage.

Jan is also co-founder of the Livingkindness Foundation, a charitable organization which provides leadership assistance to women, educational opportunities for Nigerian children and leadership programs for youth everywhere.

Jan’s ninth book, “No Ordinary Time: The Rise of Spiritual Intelligence and Evolutionary Creativity” is the inspiration for her workshops. She’s a vocal proponent of the power of art and activism.

How do you spell confusion?

Why can’t U.S. media agree on how to spell Arab names?

As Libya deposes its longtime dictator, I have seen his last name spelled with a ‘G,’ a ‘Q’ and a ‘K.’ And that’s only the first letter of his surname.
