Below is an unsolicited testimonial from an attendee of John’s last workshop at Project Butterfly.

"It was an evening that left me 'sparky' and alit with happiness… I felt that John's passion fell upon the ears and hearts of people who have chosen to rise up within their circles of influence as awakened communicators.

He has a timely message that I feel will be assimilated and actualized for the benefit of the collective.

Dynamic, revealing, quickening, liberating are the keywords that describe my experience and what I am left with after being with the impact from the workshop 5 days out.

Thank you, Project Butterfly for taking an empowering position in the world community."

a rare screening of the award winning documentary film ‘TRUDELL’, which follows the life work of legendary Native American poet, musician and activist John Trudell. Filmmaker Heather Rae spent more than a decade chronicling his travels, spoken word and politics in this provocative, riveting and fascinating film.

The dangerous poetry, visionary music and heroic activism of John Trudell was forged by an extraordinary life. Born of mixed tribal blood, John grew up in and around the Santee Sioux reservation near his hometown of Omaha, Nebraska. Trudell worked with the American Indian Movement, serving as Chairman of AIM from 1973 to 1979. The struggle against economic, political and cultural deprivation would, in time, become the raw material for his uncompromising artistic vision.

World Premiering at the Sundance Film Festival, 'Trudell' was hailed by the SF Chronicle as being 'extremely engaging...therefore extremely inspiring' and the Village Voice as 'riveting'.

Don't miss this rare opportunity to catch the film and John Trudell live for what promises to be a profound and explosive Q&A with Fidel Rodriguez of Divine Forces Media.

Imagine This!


Project Butterfly invites you to be a part of the first, open-source, community-building, life-changing show in television history! To find out how you can be a part of (IT!) please visit

On June 10th, Project Butterfly will screen the first episode of “Imagine This!” (IT!) that takes place in a small village nestled high in the Andes Mountains of Peru. The children of this village face an unbelievable challenge. Each day they walk 24 miles to school and back. Twelve miles down the mountain and an excruciating twelve miles back at the end of their day. In this maiden adventure, the "Imagine This!” Team arrives to the village with just one week to bring a life altering solution to this incredible challenge.

“Imagine This!” [ ] is a network of filmmakers and storytellers, activists and environmentalists, inventors and engineers, doctors and artists - all dedicated to creating sustainable, life-altering projects for communities around the globe. Projects will be chosen as episodes of a documentary/reality television series that shows the world as a canvas of creation where everything and everyone is inextricably connected.

Filmed with breathtaking cinematography, "Imagine This!" will journey to exotic destinations - from a sacred valley to a holy land, from the mother of all jungles to the grandfather of all deserts, as well as to a few destinations in the United States. At each stop there will be a community in need, a mission to complete, and a week to make a difference.

Please join us for an exciting and inspiring opportunity to experience and to get involved with this project at these early stages. A call is being made to people who see the problems of the world as a challenge and are game to change them.

The evening will be hosted by Eion Bailey, and will include:

a Screening of the First Episode of “Imagine This!”
a panel discussion and Q&A after the screening with the “Imagine This!” team.
a Rooftop After-Party with djs and Open Bar [Free Drinks].

Path & Power


Join Project Butterfly on June 2, 2009 from 7pm-10pm for::

Path & Power with Robert Tennyson Stevens
presented by Mastery Systems

Living the Path of Conscious Language™ & The Power of Imagination Activation
- Explore the powerful influence of language and imagination in shaping your reality
- Discover limiting belief systems and how to convert them into belief systems that sustain
your chosen outcomes -

Robert Tennyson Stevens has developed a unique curriculum of empowerment technologies designed to support you in manifesting, sustaining, and enjoying your heart's desires. Explore the profound possibility that you create your reality with every word you think, speak, and feel...All are welcome to attend.

Our awareness - that which we are Conscious of being - is the tapestry of our life. Our language is found in every thread and fiber of our reality. By changing one word within ourselves, we expand, contract, or alter our Consciousness, our awareness, and our reality. The thoughts and conversations of generations before us are still resonating as true and real in our lives. Many of these language patterns and beliefs are less than our highest truths.

There are greater truths, and more wonderful realities awaiting us all. Conscious Language™ is what Robert Tennyson Stevens calls Pure Speech. He refers to our language as our operating system. How many like the idea, how many realize it’s time to upgrade want and can’t and should and try and must and need and couldn’t/wouldn’t/shouldn’t/didn’t/can’t into something different? Imagine if your inner speech became your outer reality…It does.

Imagination, in simple terms, is our pre-view of what is to come. When we pre-tend, we tend to our future until it becomes our current reality. Imagination, more than any other human function, defines our successes and our failures.

MAX the Ancient Crystal Skull


$30 contribution if you register in advance :: $35 the day of the event :: This event is expected to sell out

Project Butterfly presents an evening with MAX, one of the 13 ancient crystal skulls of the world, hosted by Aravel Garduno [ ] and JoAnn Parks, MAX’s caretaker. They will be sharing information about MAX followed by a meditation with MAX.

At 18.2 pounds, MAX is the largest of the known authentic ancient crystal skulls. The British Museum and many other archaeological authorities consider Max to be one of the rarest artifacts ever found. Estimated to be at least 10,000 years old, MAX was found in a tomb in St. Augustine, Guatemala between 1924 and 1926. MAX was used by Mayan priests for healing and prayer.

Norbu Chen, a powerful healer of the Tibetan sect of Red Hat Lamas, traveled to Guatemala in the 1950’s to study with these Mayan priests. The Mayans gave Max to Chen when he departed so he could use it in his journey as a healer. Before the lama died, he gave the cherished crystal skull to JoAnn Parks, the current custodian for MAX.

JoAnn has traveled with MAX around the world providing an experience with him for small groups. Many who have touched MAX have had instantaneous healings, received information about the origins of civilization, seen visions of other worlds, heard unusual sounds and/or expanded psychic abilities.

Experience the magic of MAX for yourself Sunday May 31st at 7pm.

Limited Space :: RSVP required :: This event is expected to sell out

$30 contribution if you register in advance :: $35 the day of the event

A delicious vegetarian dinner included.
