Guest Biography:

Dr.Michael E. Salla, is a pioneer in the development of ‘Exopolitics’, the political study of the key actors, institutions and processes associated with extraterrestrial life. His interest in exopolitics evolved out of his investigation of the sources of international conflict and its relationship to an extraterrestrial presence that is not acknowledged to the general public, elected officials or even senior military officials.

Dr Salla’s groundbreaking Exopolitics: Political Implications of the Extraterrestrial Presence (2004) was the first published book on exopolitics and explained the political implications of extraterrestrial life.

In Exposing U.S. Government Policies on Extraterrestrial Life (2009) he revealed how the world’s most powerful nation secretly manages information concerning extraterrestrial life and technology.

In Galactic Diplomacy: Getting to Yes with ET (2013) he shows how humanity can negotiate with extraterrestrial civilizations in a way that protects our vital interests.

In Kennedy’s Last Stand: Eisenhower, UFOs, MJ-12 & JFK’s Assassination (2013), he documents the tragic efforts by President Kennedy to share more widely the truth about UFOs & extraterrestrial visitation.

In Insiders Reveal Secret Space Programs and Extraterrestrial Alliances (2015), Dr. Salla analyzes whistleblower testimonies revealing the extent of classified  space programs and extraterrestrial diplomacy.

Finally, in his most recent book, US Navy’s Secret Space Programs and Nordic Extraterrestrial Alliance (2017), he presents extensive documentation supporting the existence of a highly advanced US Navy space program capable of interstellar travel.

Dr. Salla is an internationally recognized scholar in international politics, conflict resolution and US foreign policy, and is the author/editor of an additional four books including The Hero’s Journey Toward a Second American Century (Greenwood Press, 2002); (Central Queensland University Press, 1995); Why the Cold War Ended (Greenwood Press, 1995); and Islamic Radicalism, Muslim Nations and the West (1993). He has also authored more than seventy articles, chapters, and book reviews on peace, ethnic conflict and conflict resolution. He has held academic appointments in the School of International Service & the Center for Global Peace, American University, Washington DC (1996-2004); the Department of Political Science, Australian National University, Canberra, Australia (1994-96); and the Elliott School of International Affairs, George Washington University, Washington D.C., (2002). He has a Ph.D in Government from the University of Queensland, Australia, and an M.A. in Philosophy from the University of Melbourne, Australia. He has conducted research and fieldwork in the ethnic conflicts in East Timor, Kosovo, Macedonia, and Sri Lanka, and organized peacemaking initiatives involving mid to high level participants from these conflicts.

Dr. Salla founded the Exopolitics Institute (2005) and the Exopolitics Journal (2006). He has co-organized five international conferences on extraterrestrial life and Earth Transformation on the Big Island of Hawaii. Dr Salla is the host of ExoNews.TV and has appeared in hundreds of radio and television shows and international conferences for his research on exopolitics and international conflict.

BILLY COBHAM ART OF THE RHYTHM SECTION RETREAT
Guest Occupation: Drummer, percussionist, composer, producer, and educator
Guest Biography:

THE RAY SHASHO SHOW WELCOMES

LEGENDARY DRUMMER & JAZZ-FUSION PIONEER

B I L L Y   C O B H A M

In 1969 Billy Cobham co-founded the fusion group Dreams, which also featured Randy Brecker, Michael Brecker, John Abercrombie, Don Grolnick, Barry Rodgers, and Will Lee. The following year he was invited to join Miles Davis's group and contributed to four pivotal recordings by the trumpeter, including Bitches Brew (where he collaborated with guitarist John McLaughlin) and Tribute to Jack Johnson. 

Mahavishnu Orchestra was formed by McLaughlin in 1971 with Cobham, Jan Hammer, Jerry Goodman, and Rick Laird. They released three acclaimed albums (beginning with Inner Mounting Flame) before the band was dissolved and Cobham chose to launch his solo career with Spectrum, one of the definitive albums of the jazz-rock era. 

During the 1970s and '80s, he recorded steadily as a leader for Atlantic, CBS, Elektra, and GRP, collaborating with artists ranging from George Duke, John Scofield, and Tony Williams to Jack Bruce and the Grateful Dead, both on stage and in the studio. 

Cobham was engaged by UNICEF in 1992 to work with autistic outpatients and street children in Santos (near São Paulo), Brazil, in a musical project of several years' duration. "The street children fell into my realm of operations almost by chance, as it was not part of my original mandate," he says. "But due to the unavoidable specter and shadow cast by so many little personalities with big hearts and so much time to ponder life without parental direction, it was inevitable that I would find myself working with them-some of the brightest minds harboring raw talent that I have ever witnessed to date. The shame of it all was that many would never have the opportunity to use their gift." 

In '93 Cobham performed, recorded, and produced at the WOMAD Festival (World of Music, Arts and Dance) with Peter Gabriel, Nigeria's Okuta Percussion, and Farafina from Burkina Faso. (His association with WOMAD continues to this day: over the last several years he's conducted sessions in performance techniques at the University of Bath Spa in England, and he is now an Official Patron of WOMAD in Bath.) 

His current collaboration with the Cuban group Asere has been ongoing since their first performance together at the WOMAD Festival in Reading in 2002. A new CD, De Cuba y de Panamá, is due for summer 2008 release, and a DVD, A Latin Soul, directed by John Hollis, is already out. That package contains live concert footage, two documentaries, and a bonus CD with live and studio tracks. Cobham and Asere will be touring the U.K. this fall. 

In 2011 Cobham began teaching drums online at The Jazz and Fusion Drum School.

In 2013, Cobham celebrated the 40th anniversary of the release of Spectrum CD by touring in USA, Canada and Europe with the Spectrum 40 Band. Also that year, Purple Pyramid Records released the Billy Cobham Compass Point two-CD set, recorded live at Compass Point hotel in the Bahamas in 1997, which was never released before.

Early 2014 marked the release of the much-anticipated "Tales from the Skeleton Coast", which is the third installment of the four recordings produced as a commemoration and celebration of Cobham's mother and father, both of whom were musicians. 
In the summer of 2014, Cobham released a live CD recording from the celebrated Spectrum 40 tours, which dazzled audiences around the world in commemoration of the 40th anniversary of Spectrum CD, the defining album of the jazz-fusion genre. (Spectrum 40 LIVE)

Drumming legend and jazz fusion pioneer Billy Cobham will bring his highly acclaimed Art of the Rhythm Section Retreat back to the Mesa Arts Center for its second year, offering an immersive educational program for drummers, bassists, guitarists and keyboard players. Geared for advanced students to music educators and working professionals alike, the intensive curriculum is designed to give experienced musicians a range of opportunities to delve into the finer points of working as a cohesive unit in the rhythm section from Billy Cobham, along with Dean Brown (guitar), Ric Fierabracci (bass), Gerry Etkins (keyboards), and global drumming ambassador Dom Famularo.

In the words of program founder Billy Cobham, “The unique format of the program allows participants to explore and expand their artistry, develop and refine their band and focus on the all-important elements of teamwork and collaboration, so that all types of instrumentalists can benefit and learn from the perspective of each one of our coaches.”

Through a variety of learning experiences, including interactive lectures, discussions, demonstrations, playing exercises, and nightly jam sessions, participants will discover how to …

Gain and build trust among fellow Rhythm Section musicians in performance.

Stay in sync with yourself so that you can control what you play through your instrument while receiving information from your colleagues in the Rhythm Section.

Keenly listen in performance, interpret what is offered by your fellow players and offer effective musical ideas in return.

Control tempo and provide a sense of security in performance.

Present a more harmonious musical character through heightened awareness.

Remain in control of syncopated musical ideas within the performance.

The Retreat will also offer a musician enrichment program, “Social Media on Steroids conducted by marketing expert Dan Shinder, to help musicians better leverage social media in promoting their music and their brands.

The Billy Cobham Art of the Rhythm Section Retreat culminates with a special Saturday night performance with Billy and the Spectrum 40 Band at the Mesa Arts Center on Saturday, July 22, 2017 in the Piper Theatre at 7:30 pm  (1 E Main St, Mesa, AZ 85201 near Phoenix, Arizona)

Enrollment for the program is now open, with spaces limited for each of the four Instrument categories of drums, guitar, bass and keyboards. For more information and to register, visit: www.billycobhamretreat.com

Tim Freke
Guest Occupation: Author, Gnostic Scholar, Philosopher
Guest Biography:

Tim is the standup philosopher – a concept he developed from the ancient idea of a philosopher as a travelling ‘spiritual entertainer’ who transformed people’s consciousness. He is pioneering an accessible new way to experience a profound spiritual awakening, which fully embraces our tender, vulnerable, flawed humanity. He has spent his life exploring the awakened state he often simply calls the ‘mystery experience’ and is able to guide others directly to it.

In his latest book, The Mystery Experience, Tim presents a revolutionary approach to spirituality. He creates a new language of awakening, which makes profound ideas simpler to understand, so it’s easier to experience a real transformation of consciousness. During his Mystery Experience Retreats he personally guides participants directly to the deep awake state.

Tim is a passionate and playful communicator, whose enthusiasm for life is contagious. He is often featured in documentaries and chat shows broadcast by the global media, such as the BBC and the History Channel. Tim blogs for The Huffington Post and care2.com amongst others. He is the founder of The Alliance for Lucid Living, (The ALL), an organization dedicated to our collective awakening. He lives with his wife Debbie and their two children in Glastonbury, England.

I experienced the deep awake state for the first time when I was 12 years old and it was WOW! I was sitting on a hill overlooking my small hometown in the southwest of England contemplating how strange and mysterious life is … when it just happened.

I can vividly recall the feeling of being immersed in overwhelming, exquisite, ecstatic love; as if the whole universe was pulsating with love. I felt I’d been given the most amazing surprise … and yet also as if I’d remembered something I’d always secretly known.  

Ever since, I've been exploring how to transform my state of consciousness. I’ve also felt passionate about sharing the WOW of awakening with others, because I soon discovered that when I am deep awake others start waking up around me.

I'm now in my 50s and over the years I've had the privilege of touching the lives of hundreds of thousands of people through my books, broadcasts and events. I feel extremely grateful to have the opportunity to explore the deep awake life with others. Awakening is above all an experience of love and love gets bigger when shared.

Guest Occupation: Medical Director, Utopia Wellness
Guest Biography:

Utopia Wellness is a leading-edge medical center that offers integrative, holistic, patient-focused medical treatments. Under the direction of Carlos M. Garcia, M.D., programs designed for anyone who wants to enjoy optimal health are offered: Whether suffering from a chronic illness or simply wanting to prevent disease. Our extensive menu of wellness programs complement each other by addressing all issues related to well-being.

Dr. Carlos M. Garcia M.D. received his formal medical training at the University of Massachusetts, Medical School followed by an internship in Internal Medicine and residency in Anesthesia, both at Hahnemann University in Philadelphia, PA.

After moving to the Tampa Bay area in 1984, he began his practice as an Anesthesiologist at Bayfront Medical Center, Edward White Hospital, and Physicians’ Community Hospital.

Over his years working in hospitals, he came to realize that traditional medicine was driven more by the profits of pharmaceutical companies and hospitals than it was on providing the patient with the best possible care. So in 1996, Dr. Garcia redirected his medical focus to natural alternative health care including holistic medicine, integrative cancer treatments, Chelation therapy, bio-identical hormone replacement, IV vitamins and antioxidants, and weight loss. In all of these areas, he uses non-harmful and natural alternatives to conventional treatments. His passion to help others achieve optimal health through natural medicine led him to found Utopia Wellness, where he incorporates the best that medicine has to offer, traditional and alternative.

Dr. Garcia’s focus over the past several years has been on helping people suffering from cancer and its related diseases. His approach is holistic in that he addresses not only the tumor or cancer but also on the whole person and the cause of the cancer. To be truly cancer free for life, you must identify and eliminate the underlying cause of the disease.  In 2012, Dr. Garcia published his book Cancer is a Symptom: The Real Cause Revealed where he addresses the prospect that cancer is merely a symptom and unless you heal the underlying cause, you will never be truly cancer free.He also co authored Cancer Free with Bill Henderson.

Dr. Garcia is a member of ACAM (American College for the Advancement of Medicine), ICIM (International College of Integrative Medicine), and the American Holistic Health Association.  Additionally, Dr. Garcia holds certifications in Chelation Therapy from the American Board of Chelation Therapy, and has given numerous lectures on various health topics to professionals, medical students and the public, has had a radio talk show, and has been interviewed for several health related television news topics.

Guest Biography:
Roberta Grimes is a business attorney with a degree in early Christian history. Following two experiences of light in childhood, she spent decades studying nearly 200 years of abundant and consistent afterlife evidence, and at length, she developed a detailed picture of what happens at and after death.
 
Roberta’s The Fun of Dying was first published in 2010, and The Fun of Staying in Touch came out in 2014. When she realized that 2000 years ago Jesus had told us things about God, reality, death, the afterlife, and the meaning and purpose of human life that are amazingly validated by modern afterlife evidence, in 2015 Roberta published Liberating Jesus. Now she continues her FUN series and builds upon the truths of Liberating Jesus in her beautifully simple The Fun of Growing Forever.
 
Nothing about the FUN series is religious. The afterlife evidence and the Gospel teachings together assure us that spiritual growth is the purpose of human life, and unfortunately, no religious tradition makes spiritual growth a priority. But throughout human history, revered teachers have shared their wisdom with us, the simplest and most effective of which spiritual teachings are the Gospel words of Jesus.
 
In The Fun of Growing Forever, Roberta explains the teachings of Jesus as a simple guide to growing spiritually, and she demonstrates how easily these teachings can be applied to modern daily lives; she shows us why they work so well, and she shares compelling evidence that following these teachings can make us a great deal happier as we also much improve our post-death lives. As Roberta says, growing spiritually makes you the happiest that you can be! She also provides compelling evidence that if enough of us will follow these teachings, we can together transform the world from its present disordered state and make of it a garden of love and light.

Guest Biography:

Joe Hernandez, is an authentic, gifted intuitive and talented artist. His readings are very sharp, and he has a deep compassion for humanity. Very down-to-earth, Joe cuts through a lot of jargon to get at the root of the issue. While he is practical and direct, Joe is nonetheless a very empathetic, sensitive and credible voice of understanding and guidance.

As the second youngest child of eight, born in the South Bronx in the 50’s, Joe’s previous life was defined by his drive, quick intelligence and defiant nature. He was driven by money and success, like many in today’s Western culture, and he despised any reference to spiritual things or the God of his Catholic upbringing. In the first days of the year 2000, following a mundane accident at work and a simple mistake by hospital staff in the ER department, Joe died twice in one night. Aside from the long term damage sustained to his physical body, Joe had a profoundly life changing experience during the more than five minutes that he was clinically dead. This experience was just the beginning of a new life marked by ongoing communication with Spirit. Joe himself believes that he left the ‘old Joe’ on the other side and those who knew him before couldn’t reconcile themselves with the man that returned. As is often the case with NDE experiencers, his marriage of 30 plus years ended and he painfully left the life he had lived behind him.

Over the past 17 years, since his near death experience, Joe has learned, with guidance from several gifted, generous healing therapists, and his Spirit Guides how to live with one foot here and one foot on the other side. He became an ordained Inter-faith minister in 2005 and began sharing his experience and gifts and speaking across the US. He met and married his soul-mate, Anastasia, in 2008 and together they developed the mindfulness modality Inner Immersion to share the experience with others, to offer Licensed Mental Health Practitioners (LMHPs) an engaging mindfulness tool and to continue his healing practice. Joe and Anastasia have worked with over 600 clients and have evolved the Inner Immersion modality to its current form which has proven to be highly effective in helping clients get to underlying issues and develop the tools to help themselves move forward in life.
