After Midnight Creations/ A Momentary Calm

Bringing blessings and healing to our animal friends. Pleased to announce A Momentary Calm & After Midnight Creations - Art Inspired by Soul to Compassionfest 2017. Betsy-ann, of A Momentary Calm & After Midnight Creations, is an active visual artist and member of the Valley Arts Council in Derby, CT., specializing in inspirational and 3D art collages and special occasion card boxes. She also holds certification as an Usui Reiki Master (since 2010), and received her Kundalini Reiki Master certification in 2012. Betsy recently began expanding her work, providing Animal Reiki services after her son's lovable "pitty" began requesting her treatment when she came to visit. Her Energy work is intended to help the recipient tap into the body's own healing power, to release dis-ease and energy imbalances within the Human Energy Field. Betsy acts as a channel, to bring forward the Universal Life Force energy that surrounds and infuses us, to facilitate this process.
About all her work, she notes, "I believe I am called to teach, to help in healing, to offer guidance, and to share my artistic vision, to make the world a little more joy-filled. Animals are more closely connected to spirit and the unseen, and are naturally compassionate, loving beings. I love to help them, as well as their human partners, to connect to the Universal Energy. Perhaps you will join me as we explore, and rejuvenate our spirits with, the power and benefits of art & Reiki."

While DVA recognizes the challenges of living in a complex, modern society, we wish to promote the choices that provide the greatest reduction of animal suffering.

Connecticut Votes For Animals (CVA)

The fate of Connecticut’s animals is being decided every day at the state legislature; Connecticut Votes For Animals is working hard to ensure that animals – and those who care about them – get a say in the decisions that are made. To bring about long-term, positive change for animals, we must persuade legislators of the importance of being pro-animal and also elect animal-friendly lawmakers. We can do so by exerting constituent pressure – that is, calling our representatives about important animal protection issues – and also voting for humane-minded candidates. The more people who are willing to make their vote count for animals, the more lawmakers will listen. CVA facilitates this process – educating the public regarding animal protection issues, fighting harmful proposals, and safeguarding animals’ interests by making their well-being a priority for our elected leaders.

Hartford Walk for Farm Animals

The Walk for Farm Animals has been part of Farm Sanctuary since the beginning. In 1986, we didn’t yet have our sanctuary in Watkins Glen, but we had a small group of dedicated volunteers who helped us establish the first Walk for Farm Animals in support of our mission to stop animal abuse and su

ffering. Those first efforts were modest by today’s standards, but they helped fund the down payment for what became our first official shelter and national headquarters. From those humble beginnings, the Walks have continued to be a vital part of our fundraising and outreach efforts and keep growing as more people learn about farm animal issues and want to help. The funds raised by the Walks support our work to rescue farm animals, provide urgent care and lifelong refuge, as well as our education and advocacy efforts for farm animals everywhere. Over the years, the Walks have raised nearly $2 million for Farm Sanctuary thanks to the dedication of our volunteer Walk Coordinators and our amazing walkers! http://walkforfarmanimals.org/
