Learn Methods How To Solve Any Personal Problem With Peat Method
Conference Room of Villa Rosa, 15 Chapala St., Santa Barbara
P.E.A.T.methods transform lives and communities. YOU WILL LEARN HOW TO SOLVE ANY PROBLEM. “UNTIL YOU MAKE THE UNCONSCIOUS CONSCIOUS, IT WILL DIRECT YOUR LIFE AND YOU WILL CALL IT FATE” C.G. Jung This is one day workshop or 3 day Certification program (plus 50 hours of practice) for a new transformation method for neutralizing the fundamental problems in life, on a unconscious level, with immediate breakthrough results are offered in a one, two and three day workshops. This is not a motivational, inspirational or otherwise “fluffy” seminar, but a hands-on learning process workshop where participants will: Primary Energy Activation and Transformation - P.E.A.T. is developed by Zivorad M. Slavinski, with a focus on a personality change on the unconscious level, designed for a fast neutralization of emotional "baggage", resolve traumas, past negative experiences, overcome fears, eliminate problems, break unproductive habits and create a desired characteristics of personality traits and much more. Imagine just how lighter a world would be, if every person would release the major emotional baggage that we carry with us everywhere we go, these loads of unsolved energy charge from problems that create the games of life we play in many different variations unconsciously and compulsively. Upon process completion we are set free from our main compulsions and we no longer play a hidden game. We have a freedom to…and a freedom from… The changes in lives become profound and substantial. There are no prerequisites to learn P.E.A.T. process. Methods are practical and usable, quick, predictable, easy to apply on yourself and others. Upon completion of two day P.E.A.T. course, participants are officially registered and certified P.E.A.T. practitioners with diploma, to process / treat themselves, family and friends and or clients. Once P.E.A.T. is globally accepted and in practice, it will transform today's world of psychology. There are two categories of participants: 1. processors that realize the professional potential opportunities upon P.E.A.T. certification and choose P.E.A.T. as a career, as it will offer more than monetary success, since they will be a tool of transformation and a conduit to others well being; and or 2. attendee that choose to save time and serious money on years of psychologist sessions and utilize workshop to neutralize their 11+ major issues of personal choice and experience immediate results in a shift in their perception and feelings. What's extraordinary and makes P.E.A.T. different: 1. Protocol is efficient and fast - neutralisation of bad memory from stress or trauma - can be accomplished in just one treatment. *(alcohol, drugs, food, sex or other major dependencies can take up to 7 treatments). It saves years and years of clinical therapy. 2. Methods are ideal for those who need confidentiality. PEAT is not a traditional process of clinical psychology, where we talk about or discuss problems. As Tesla stated: "every time you talk about something you feed it with new energy, so story/trauma/ stress grows, involves, and not only that old energy is still present, but, it gets even empowered, stronger and more installed in to our psyche.") Since the introduction of P.E.A.T. approximately 4000 people have freed themselves from the most fundamental, unconscious and compulsive problem of their life, most notably Tony Robbins's club members. Now is your time. Complimentary introductory presentation and workshops in Santa Barbara, Beverly Hills and Montenegro are conducted by: Tatjana Milana –certified P.E.A.T. trainer, founder of F.A.I.R. (Free Instant Authentic Release)Method, practitioner of: Transactional psychoanalyses, Quantum harmonization, Transcendental Meditation, Group analysis, Light formula, Order, Sound healing methods, Tesla methods, Reiki, Theta Healing, Domancic healing.. Our problems, negative emotions and reactions as well as not so optimal behavior are caused by what we call mental and emotional "charge". Charge is the contents of the unconscious, repressed thoughts and emotions that have been achieved during life, in different experiences, with a compulsive nature. Repressed thoughts and emotions are activated automatically and compulsively in different life situations and produce undesirable reactions, balances and behavior, in other words "problems". To effectively eliminate a problem, we must identify and neutralize all unconscious contents that are relevant to this problem. By integrating the charge, person achieves at least two benefits, practical (better quality of life) and spiritual. Friday: complimentary lecture; Saturday (10 am - 5 pm): you will solve 10+ major personal issues and you will learn 2 powerful methods you can apply at any time for any problem (price $1000/ on sale this month for $750) Sunday (11 am - 4 pm): you will solve one trauma and one problem that will resolve your main negative fundamental pattern forever / and you will learn 2 techniques you can apply at any time for any problem; (price $1500) Monday (5pm - 10 pm): you will solve one issue and will transform one character trade.

Carved Paper: The Art of the Japanese Stencil
Santa Barbara Museum of Art
, 1130 State Street, Santa Barbara
February 12 – May 7, 2017 ..... Japanese paper stencils, or katagami, are the pattern-bearing tools used in a resist-dyeing textile process known as katazome. Despite their utilitarian role, katagami, with their striking patterns, have long captivated Western collectors and artists. Stencil designs were not intended to be viewed as isolated compositions, but as repeated, rhythmic patterns on the fluid surface of cloth. Drawn from the Museum’s permanent collection, the selected stencils were produced in the late Edo and Meiji periods (1850–1912) when the Japanese demand for new fashion stimulated an outpouring of patterns that has rarely been equaled in the world of design. Since few everyday garments have survived, stencils remain the principal record of this rich textile tradition. These finely carved patterns on rich brown papers were a major source of inspiration in the Art Nouveau movement in France, the Applied Arts movement in Vienna, and the Arts and Crafts movement in Britain and America. The katagami collection at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art was first established with the gift of 75 stencils from the estate of Lockwood de Forest (1850–1932), a key figure in the American Aesthetic movement who was at one time a business partner of Louis Comfort Tiffany. ..... $6 - $10

Christian Marclay: Telephones
Santa Barbara Museum of Art
, 1130 State Street, Santa Barbara
Ongoing ..... A landmark in the history of video art, Christian Marclay’s "Telephones" (1995) is an expertly edited sequence of black-and-white and color film clips featuring people using an assortment of telephones, all from the pre-smart phone era. "Telephones" offers an engaging yet complex experience: while we are all familiar with watching “the movies,” Marclay’s work blends unrelated but recognizable characters and stories into a continuous stream that upends our expectations of how stories are told and meanings are created. At times humorous, startling, tense and poignant, "Telephones" allows us to reflect on how we immediately—and often involuntarily—process information and entertainment in our media-dominated world. ..... $6 - $10

David Wiesner & The Art of Wordless Storytelling
Santa Barbara Museum of Art
, 1130 State Street, Santa Barbara
January 29 – May 14, 2017 ..... David Wiesner (b. 1956) is one of the most highly acclaimed picture book artists in the world. Winner of the prestigious Caldecott Medal for “Tuesday” in 1992, “The Three Pigs” in 2002, and “Flotsam” in 2007, Wiesner is only the second person in the history of the award to have received it three times. This exhibition of 90 objects is the first to contextualize Wiesner’s art through the inclusion of work by other artists by whom Wiesner was influenced, while also foregrounding the artist’s creative process. Of the earlier masters of wordless picture books, Wiesner has cited three in particular who held sway over his artistic formation: the Belgian born Frans Masereel (1889–1972), the German artist Otto Nückel (1888–1955), and American wordless book specialist, Lynd Ward (1905–1985). Wiesner was also deeply affected by comic book legends Jack Kirby (1917–1994) and Jim Steranko (b. 1938), best known for their work for Marvel. The exhibition and associated catalogue include original art by these artists, as well as Salvador Dalí, Joseph Stella, and Charles Sheeler. In addition, the exhibition catalogue features full-color plates of Wiesner’s original watercolors from his earliest artistic successes to his most recent project: his first graphic novel, “Fish Girl,” scheduled for release in March 2017. The exhibition catalogue is made possible through the generosity of Zora and Les Charles. ..... $6 - $10

Radical Bodies: Anna Halprin; Simone Forti; Yvonne Rainer in CA and NY 1955-1972
Art, Design & Architecture Museum
, UCSB Campus, Santa Barbara
In August 1960, the choreographer Anna Halprin taught an experimental workshop attended by Simone Forti and Yvonne Rainer on her dance deck on the slopes of Mt. Tamalpais, north of San Francisco. Within two years, Forti’s conceptually forceful dance constructions had premiered in Yoko Ono’s loft and Rainer had cofounded the ground-breaking Judson Dance Theater. Radical Bodies reunites Halprin, Forti, and Rainer for the first time in over fifty-five years. Dance was a fundamental part of the art world in the 1960s. Halprin, Forti, and Rainer, all Californians with Jewish roots, opened the way to a radicalized vision for dance, music and the visual arts that continues to influence choreographers and visual artists around the world to the present day.

The riotous tale of mistake identities and unexpected romance explodes in this brand new musical comedy based on the Tony Award nominated play. It’s 1934 and Opera virtuoso Tito Merelli is about to revive one of his great triumphs for the 10-year anniversary of the Cleveland Grand Opera Company. When Tito becomes unexpectedly incapacitated, a suitable replacement must be found. Who is cavalier enough to replace him? Max, the Opera Director’s sheepish assistant, is charged with the daunting task of finding a suitable replacement. With the help of a menacing soprano, a tenor-struck ingenue, a jealous wife, and the Cleveland Police Department, mayhem, lunacy and shear panic ensue, but in the end the show must always go on.
