The 2015 World Peace Caravan and the Queen of Sheba

Digital Girl
What do the Queen of Sheba and the World Peace Caravan 2015 share in common?

The Queen of Sheba is seen in history as a seeker of truth and wisdom. Her story is profound in that she has been rumored to have a strange feature; a left foot that is cloven like that of a goat and a VERY hairy leg.  Truth or Myth?

The Queen of Sheba appears in religious texts sacred to Jews, Christians, and Muslims.

The wise queen had heard that King Solomon of Israel was also very wise and decided to travel by camel to Jerusalem to meet him and test his knowledge with questions and riddles.

She brings with her the gifts of frankincense, myrrh, gold and precious jewels.

This path the caravan traveled between the Queen’s kingdom and that of King Solomon became known as the Frankincense Trail.

 King Solomon heard of the Queen of Sheba, her great kingdom, her hairy leg and cloven foot.

Eager to see if the story was true, he has the floor of his court polished until it reflects everything that crosses it like mirrored glass. When the Queen of Sheba walks across the floor, Solomon sees the reflection of her cloven foot. However, right before his eyes, it transforms and becomes normal. One thing leads to another, and nine months later a son is born. Prince Menelik decides to travels the same Frankincense Trail to Israel to meet his father, King Solomon. When he returns, he takes with him the Ark of the Covenant, the sacred container containing the Ten Commandments.

The inaugural World Peace Caravan 2015 is a 12-day camel caravan for world peace that will retrace Queen Sheba’s peace journey to King Solomon 3,000 years ago.

Scheduled to depart Petra, Jordan on December 15, 2015, the caravan will travel by camel, horse, and foot to Jerusalem, retracing the steps of this early peace movement along parts of the storied Frankincense Trail. Join Kathleen O’Keefe-Kanavos and Lori Boyle as they:

  • interview the people involved in this peaceful event.  
  • meet the Director of the Caravan Kim Langbecker,
  • and the Youth Ambassadors who will be involved in this persistent setting occasion


The caravan will be anchored by two landmark events:
  1. the WPC Peace and Health Conference on the Dead Sea in Jordan
  2. the WPC Concert for Peace in Jerusalem.

A uniquely embracive movement, the WPC will engage participants:
  • physically,
  • emotionally,
  • mentally
  • and spiritually

It invites people of all cultures, faiths, and backgrounds to come together to demonstrate and promote peace, harmony, compassion, and a greater understanding of one another.

Dubai’s Simran Vedvyas appointed to the World Peace Caravan Youth Ambassador Program

Lehi, Utah, January 7, 2015 - Sixteen year old Simran Vedvyas has recently been selected to represent Dubai and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) as a Youth Ambassador to the inaugural World Peace Caravan 2015.

In the twelve months leading up to the caravan in December, the 12 Youth Ambassadors (YAs) are participating in a web-based, multi-media, and solutions-driven program designed to empower the YAs and the WPC’s Youth Community to invent and implement solutions to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The YAs will serve as the voice for youth all over the world at the two-day Peace and Health Conference, and their presentation there will be streamed live to a worldwide audience.

 “Our world is literally at the edge of a cliff, made ready to roll down by the adverse effects of human greed. So it leaves us with two choices; either we let it roll down, or we make a collective effort to make some paradigm shift to pull it back and make it just, peaceful, and sustainable for a better future for ourselves and the generations to come.” ~Simran Vedvyas

The WORLD PEACE CARAVAN is founded by the international D. Gary Young Foundation, a 501 © (3) non-profit organization.

Of note……The Economist has featured the World Peace Caravan on its December calendar for events to watch out for in 2015!

The Kathleen O'Keefe-Kanavos Radio Show: The Karma Queens-What's Love Got to do With It?

Click the link below to listen to an incredible radio show that will help you discover the Secrets to Changing the Karma in Your Relationships with Lovers, Spouses, Family and Friends.
Want to know What's Love Got to Do With It? Ask Tina Turner. Want to know what KARMA's got to do with it? Ask Carmen and Alexandra Harra!
Dr. Carmen Harra, author of the international bestseller Everyday Karma, and her wise-beyond-her years daughter Alexandra, as they team up on the book The Karma Queens Guide to Relationships: The Truth About Karma in Relationships (Tarcher/Penguin; May26, 2015.
They reveal to listeners and readers how to learn the truth of their individual relationship karma.
The result is a golden manual of wisdom in relationships from both a spiritual and practical standpoint.
On the show Dr. Carmen Harra discusses how to:
  • achieve flawless communication,
  • heightened intimacy, and a deeper connection.
Their book clarifies how to:   
  • Discover the way you first accumulated the negative energy you put on yourself
  • Determine if your accumulated karma is preventing you from meeting your romantic soul mate, or if you instead need to clear outside influences affecting your current relationship
  • Wipe out everyday relationship worries
  • Overcome former betrayals
  • Scope out the real reason behind your partner's actions
  • Calculate your numerology to better understand yourself and those you love
  • Use "karmic cycles" to your advantage, so you are not as burdened by life's ups and downs
  • Learn to be a better friend, family member, romantic partner and member of a community-and ultimately strengthening your relationship with yourself
The Karma Queens' Guide to Relationships teaches us that there exist four types of love relationships and the rare intensity of a soulmate bond is outlined in ten elements that reveal whether our partner is indeed our heart's other half. Understanding the reality of our relationships allows us to navigate through them with ease and without unnecessary complications.
These two women--one a world renowned author, psychologist and intuitive seen on Good Morning America, The View, Fox News, The Today Show, and CBS' The Early Show and the other, a gorgeous model, life coach, Huffington Post columnist and trendsetter among the millennials--are The Karma Queens and guest on the Kathleen O’Keefe-Kanavos show on the Wicked Housewives ON Cape Cod Radio, where they discussed and answered questions like:
  • what is karma
  • the reason we must learn certain lessons,
  • overcome certain challenges,
  • and meet certain people.
Karma it spills onto our relationships with others, affecting our human bonds to the breaking point, unless we acknowledge and resolve our karma once and for all. Then, you can:
  • finally escape vicious cycles
  • and progress towards permanently fulfilling relationships
On the show Dr. Harra discusses their new book The Karma Queens' Guide to Relationships: the Truth About Karma in Relationships (Tarcher/Penguin; May 26, 2015) and reveal the secrets of how to transform the karma in all of your relationships-with lovers, spouses, family and friends. If it's not working or it's broken, there may be more here than you are aware of.
Karma is the missing ingredient to changing what's not working to what is!
The Karma Queens' Guide to Relationships unveils the secret that many of us seek throughout our life: that karma is both the problem and solution. Karma is the accumulation of our thoughts, intentions, and actions, both good and bad.
 Karma manifests into everyday life and attaches to our consciousness until it is dealt with.
 The Karma Queens' Guide to Relationships illustrates the small, but mindful steps we must take each day to resolve our outstanding karma, from modifying behavior, elevating self-love, and practicing exercises to purify energy. Miraculous relationships await when we eradicate the negative effects of the past and create new, positive karma for an infinitely joyful future.

3 Reasons Why Retreat for the Soul is THE Play-date for Adults

Girl Blowing Red Hearts To Her Lover For Valentines
Let Your Soul Soar!
You do so much that is important for your body like eat well, exercise right, and get a good night's sleep.  And, we care for our mind by doing daily "brain exercises" with memory lists like:
  1. remember to pick up the dry-cleaning,
  2. get the dog from the groomer
  3. ..wasn't there something else? Oh yeah…the KIDS!

Life is hard work! If I knew I had to give up play for work I would never have become an adult.

Play is so important for social growth that we make sure our children and pets have scheduled play-time. We make them play-dates.
When was the last time you scheduled yourself a Play-date?
You may be starved for joy.  Yes, starved! As women, and some men, we are the natural care-givers in our families. Many of us were trained that way; others were naturally born with the gift of giving. Are you the one who cares for your family?
You spend time and money for everyone else …first.  So...what have you done lately for YOURELF? Better yet, what have you done for your SOUL? When was the last time you felt it soar through the air and sing like a bird? It may have been trying to speak to you in Daydreams. Have you been too busy to listen or even notice?
It is time to give your body a Play-date and your SOUL a treat with Retreat for the Soul.
According to a study published in Play is just as important for adults as it is for children. “Defining play is difficult because it’s a moving target,” Scott G. Eberle, Ph.D, vice president for play studies at The Strong and editor of the American Journal of Play, said. “[It’s] a process, not a thing.” He said that it begins in anticipation and hopefully ends in poise. “In between you find surprise, pleasure, understanding — as skill and empathy — and strength of mind, body, and spirit.”
Here what some other experts and studies have said about the importance of adult play time.
  • “The only kind [of play] we honor is competitive play,” according to Bowen F. White, MD, a medical doctor and author of Why Normal Isn’t Healthy.

  • “We don’t lose the need for novelty and pleasure as we grow up.” Scott G. Eberle, Ph.D. vice president for play studies at The Strong and editor of the American Journal of Play.

Psychiatrist Dr. Stuart Brown, founder of the National Institute for Play, calls play a “state of being.” Brown compares play to oxygen. He writes, “…it’s all around us, yet goes mostly unnoticed or unappreciated until it is missing.” This might seem surprising until you consider everything that constitutes play. Play is art, books, movies, music, comedy, flirting and daydreaming, writes Dr. Brown,

Competitive play in children prepares them for competition in the adult world and work place. But, what is an adult to do who has been in a competitive environment all day and needs to play for the sake of playing, as our experts have pointed out?
We have a Retreat for your soul. Partake of a day full of dreams, socializing and adult play.
It will do you a world of good.
Retreat for the Soul focuses on YOU!
You deserve to Take 1 DAY out of your busy life for YOU!
Come and join us, Wicked Housewives On Cape Cod TV & Radio Hosts/Producers   Lori Boyle Kathleen O’Keefe-Kanavos,  Award winning and bestselling author, Driven Women Keynote, and Dream Therapist on beautiful Cape Cod for the One-Day-Event.

5 Simple Solutions to Give You an Edge During a Long Interview Process.

How do you stay mentally fresh during a long job interview process? Perhaps you have considered finding a new job, or asking for a higher paying position in your current  company.
  One of the things that may be holding you back from going forward is the long, nerve wracking interview process itself that may involve many call backs for higher level interviews.

How can you stay fresh and on top of your game in an energy charged environment? 

Long interviews can be emotionally and physically exhausting for a number of reasons:
·         You know you are completing against other experts in your field.
·         Your attitude and sustainability under pressure is also being judged, so you must be "up" at all times without looking fake.
·         It is difficult living under a microscope for an extended period of time.

Here is some advice for job seekers.

Remember-You are all in the same interview process so focus on what can you do to move ahead of the other interviewees.

Here are 5 Simple Solutions that answer the questions:

  • What are some ways to stay mentally fresh throughout the process?
  • What are some ways to find serenity as the pressure mounts?
  • How should you approach other opportunities that may arise? 

5 Things You Can Do to Give Yourself the Edge During a LONG Interview Process.

1.) Wear comfortable shoes- sounds simple but when your feet hurt your whole body hurts, and it shows on your face which may be mistaken as a "grumpy person."

2.) Positive mental attitude: Start your day right with mirror therapy. When you brush your teeth in the morning tell your reflection why you are the best candidate for the job by focusing on our strengths, then tell yourself how much you appreciate your opportunity to share your qualifications with others. The words you say now may pop into your mind later in the day during the interview, and you will say them with confidence because you believe them.

3.)  Keep up your momentum when you are neck-to-neck with someone else for the job.  Anytime you sit down take 3 deep "empowering breaths" and imagine them going to any part of your body or spirit where they are needed for reinforcement. 

4.) Smile! Even if you do not get this job, your smile may be so memorable it will open doors for another one. You just never know.

5.) Drink plenty of water. Dehydration under pressure shuts down the brain neurons which slows down thinking and responses. You must be on top of your game.

Dream: Becoming Barefoot

I had this dream last night and thought I’d share it with all of you for your responses to it. Have you ever had a dream that was so real you thought you were awake? And, so full of information you were sure it was important?
Dream: Becoming Barefoot
“What sets your dreams apart from your life will set your life on the right path.”~ Kathleen O’Keefe-Kanavos
I am traveling around Europe with my husband’s family for a relaxing family vacation. I am in a church where I am to meet the rest of the family to go to the next place. I throw down my clothes on a pew and shout, “That’s it! I’m done with this. It’s too hard.”

A voice says, “Go in through the back.”

butterfly dreams Suddenly, I see Paul, my brother-in-law dressed in a trench coat and carrying a brief case, walk behind the alter and enter a hidden door in the paneling. I follow into a dark narrow corridor that is a dead end except a door on the left with a sign on the wall that reads MEN, like a men’s bathroom. “Aqua” is whispered and the door opens. Rather than leading into a room, it leads outside where a group of women wearing hippy-style clothing are chatting.

“What is this called?” I ask.

“Becoming Barefoot.”

One of the women, who I recognize says, “Hey, Kat , wanna’ see Linda’s cats?” I tell her sure and follow them to a house with a room full of cats lounging on a bed, which I pick up and hug. “Want to go with us to Tibet with us?” She asks.


I follow them to an old open bed truck and climb into the back with everyone else. The truck drives a ways down a road then stops. “We have to go on by foot from here,” someone says.

As we walk down the path it rises into a wall of narrow wooden steps five inches wide by an inch deep.
“You have to take off your shoes and hold on by your toes and finger tips,” one of the women says. I kick off my heels and climb effortlessly through a trapdoor. The surrounding area is pitch-black except for the night sky filled with star constellations. “What is this?” I ask.

“Becoming Barefoot.”

I take out my cell phone to call my family and let them know I will be late but all I see are the same star constellations on the dark face of my phone. “There is no service here,” someone says.

We all sit in a circle in a covered bus stop and someone rolls a huge joint. As they light it the joint blazes then starts to fall apart because it is so loose, but they start smoking it anyway and pass it to me. “Are you okay, Kat?” one of the girls named Sue asks.

“Yeah.” I take the joint and although I used to pass on it since it always made me so sick to my stomach, this time I take a deep breath, close my eyes and hold it as long as I can before blowing it out. As I exhale I open my eyes and the sun is out. There is snow all over the ground and we are in a neighborhood, but my feet are not cold.“When did it become day?” I thought. “What if they worry about where I am and can’t get in touch with me?”

“It won’t matter, you’ll work it out, rent a car and catch up to them, use a GPS to find them. Don’t worry about it,” a voice says.

We begin our descent back down the narrow stairs and when I reach the bottom I call on my cell and leave Norma the message that I will be late.

“We’ll wait,” she says.

The dream ends.

Cancerland poster.
Interpretation: When life becomes stressful with is rules and regulations the successful people use a different approach, the back or a different door. In order to reach the heavens we must kick off our earthly shoes, connect with the ground, our Inner selves and have a little “party time with them” to reconnect with what is important in life. Time can be a burden. We all need to become barefoot and worry free.

Ask and you will receive is more than words. It is a request heard by the Universe and answered by our Spirit guides. We are made up of more than id, ego and super ego. Sometimes it is not until we are falling apart that our inner selves pop to the surface to hold us together.

Becoming barefoot is a big step to connecting with higher self.

The International Conference of Creative Thinking: Your Child & YOU!

It’s 10:00 am. Do you know what your child is learning? 

Patricia Rose Upczak, owner (19+ years) of Synchronicity Publishing LLC, and producer of The International Conference of Creative Thinking and Education is guest on The Kathleen O’Keefe-Kanavos Show, aired LIVE Wednesdays 6:00-6:30 pm PT. 

 Patricia Rose’s small publishing company is dedicated to creating materials that enhance people’s lives of all ages, but especially children ages nine through eleven.  The main subjects her books cover are reiki, synchronicity coincidences, symbology, and metaphysical mysteries for children. Synchronicity Publishing is now working on books that enhance education in a more positive and significant way.

Patricia Rose Upczak also is the brains behind The International Conference of Creative Thinking.

About this awesome conference…. The International Conference of Creativity, Thinking & Education is filled with groundbreaking educators, thinkers and creatives. The goal of the conference is to have attendees expand their professional and personal horizons. The forum will be conducive to allowing all of us to explore the leading edge of creativity, brain-based education and techniques to relieve stress in our daily lives.

Q.)   Patricia Rose, why do you call the presenters at this conference groundbreaking?
          A.) Patricia Rose:  All of our presenters this year are knowledgeable, powerful and unique in many areas.

Q.)  Can you give us some examples?

           A.)  Yes. Sharon Promislow, the author of Making The Brain Body Connection gives transformative, interactive workshops. We are very lucky to have her on both days of the conference.  Tim Gangwer is a pioneer in the field of visual literacy, and is a multi-award songwriter. He will also be presenting on both days. Our panel is absolutely amazing and the title will give you an idea of how creative our panelists are. It is called "Orbiting the Giant Hairball in Education."  Over the years I have seen NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming Technique) do amazing things both professionally and personally for so many people.It is a powerful technique. We are very lucky to have Executive NLP Coach and Master Trainer, Bill Thomason giving an interactive workshop for all of us.  We also have re-known photographer John Schaefer doing his workshop on Mapptivities where he will be doing trainings and giving away software to all the attendee. He is the founder of the Children's Media Workshop. His work is in the Library of Congress Master Photographers Collection. He was the original Sundance documentary artist and is still connected to Sundance. And there are many more equally talented presenters throughout the weekend.

Q. What do you hope the attendees get out of this conference?

       A.)  I hope everyone who attends comes away feeling more empowered. I hope they are guided to develop some of the techniques they are shown for themselves. I hope they find ways to relieve the daily stress in their lives and realize that we live in a multifaceted world full of different perspectives and ways to develop our own happiness. I believe that teachers especially are so important for not only our children, but for our future world. We all have to learn how to nurture ourselves, and each other in healthy ways.

Q.) Last but not least what are the details of the International Conference of Creativity, Thinking & Education if people want more information?

         A.) The conference takes place at the University of St. Thomas in the Schulze Auditorium in Minneapolis, MN on April 18th and 19th, 2015. For more information on all of our presenters, and how to register go to

Patricia Rose was a teacher at the Boulder Valley School district in Colorado for 24+ years from September 1975 to 2000. She also designed and ran a new program for learning disabled adolescents in a large high school in Boulder, Colorado.

“I loved my job, the school and the people I interacted with on a daily basis. Much of what I learned in those years is the basis of my new book coming out in 2011 Happy Teachers Happy Students – The Power of Intention.”

Here are 3 questions you should be asking about your child’s teachers about their education.

1.       Are they teaching students to develop lifelong skills that will help them be healthy, happy, productive adults?
2.       Are they teaching children how to use their remarkable brains that research now shows are capable of much more than anyone in education imagined?
3.       Are they teaching students how learning and education can be filled with wonder, curiosity and joy?
Now, it is my pleasure to introduce you to Patricia Rose Upczak:

Tips On How to Survive When Bad Things Happen to Good People-Like You

Click Audio Link Below to Listen: 

“Being at odds with your-selves is self-defeating. United you stand. Divided you fall.”
~Kathleen O-Keefe-Kanavos-author

Affirmation ~ The more grateful I am, the more reasons I find to be grateful.

Sometimes you don’t know what you are made of until you start to fall apart and your best parts pop out and hold you together. You are made up of so much more than id, ego and super ego. Sometimes, bad things happen to good people. That’s life. But, you don’t have to be a victim of circumstances. In fact, listening to our inner-guidance can save you from being a victim at all.

I embarked on a similar journey to Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland when I fell down the rabbit hole of Cancerland. As a child I had been encouraged to suppress my intuitive gifts of hearing voices, playing with imaginary friends and drawing auras. It was not acceptable in my school or church. So, I locked my intuitions away in the depths of my mind. But, when my life was threatened by misdiagnosis and Hospital Policy my guides blew off the doors of their cell and flew to my rescue. Rather than being a victim of circumstances, I self-advocated and became an active participant in my race for life.

   My guides lead me through my tunnel of crisis and out the other side.

Illness is the vehicle that drives my bigger story of survival against all odds while locked in a relationship triangle between my husband and crisis. What is driving you? Who will be the victor?

 Embracing intuition built a bridge that remained under constant construction and stretched between conventional and metaphysical healing. It became my bridge-to-everywhere which manifested exits and new entrances on the road to a complete healing of mind body and spirit.

Cancerland is an intellectual, emotional, and intuitive amusement park where every ride, game, and attraction demonstrates a different aspect of humanity’s complexities and individualism during the process of healing. The same hold true for any Crisisland where you must seek multiple explanations of the way things are in the physical, spiritual, psychic, and dream world of health and emotional trauma.
                Crisis is humbling and comes in many forms. It can be:

•             a life threatening illness,
•             a lifestyle change,
•             divorce
•             death
•             financial downturns
•             or all of the above.

Crisis is guaranteed to knock you down with its series of catastrophes that begin with discovery, often with no end in sight. Your Intuition can play an important part in survival and is defined as instinctively knowing without conscious reasoning.

Three things I seek to present by writing this multi-media blog is:
1.       An alternative to ignoring your intuition in favor of science
2.       Or ignoring science in favor of intuition. 
3.       Why limit yourself with one when you can use both to your advantage?

Don’t be a victim of circumstances.

The best way to survive any crisis is to mix intuitive and scientific information and then cross-check them against each other for answers which are indisputably correct. Listen, then verify. Believe but validate. By respecting both modalities, you double your chances of finding correct answers to complicated issues.

It is time to stop ignoring yourself and discover your voice. 

Every challenge you overcame creates a new part of your inner voice/personality. In order to effectively battle crisis, you must get in touch with your inner selves and work together toward the goal of survival by using everything available to you. By searching within yourself through dreams, meditation, or prayer, you will find your own set of answers to any challenge.
