Neil Kramer, Writer, Philosopher, Teacher, Esoteric Researcher, Lecturer, Teacher and Author
Guest Occupation: Writer, Philosopher, Teacher, Esoteric Researcher, Lecturer, Teacher, Author
Guest Biography:

Neil Kramer is an English writer, philosopher, and teacher, specializing in the fields of consciousness, metaphysics, and mysticism.

Kramer has made a lifelong independent study of philosophy, mystical traditions, religion, and esoteric world history. He shares his path of transformation and empowerment in writings, interviews, and lectures, as well as giving one-on-one teachings and group workshops.

He is a frequent guest on leading alternative radio and internet shows, enjoying international audiences and enthusiastic support. His work regularly appears on cutting-edge media portals and has featured on television networks in the US, UK, Canada and Europe.

Kramer has spoken at numerous international conferences and events, including The Beyond Knowledge Conference 2009, The Alternative Research Community Convention 2010, The Transitional Alchemy Tour 2009/10, The Awakening & Transformation Conference 2011, The New Living Expo 2012, and The 2012 Global Transformation Conference.

Kramer speaks on many fascinating subjects and is renowned for his unique blend of lucidity, empowerment, and authenticity. He travels widely with his writing and teaching work. He lives in Oregon, USA.

Neil Kramer’s new book “The Unfoldment” is in bookstores now.

Neil Kramer was born Nolan Salmon, in 1972, in Greater Manchester, England. He attended high school and then art college in the neighboring county of Cheshire. He went on to spend many years working in graphics and software, before finally devoting himself full-time to his enduring passion for mysticism and philosophy.

Kramer’s work focuses chiefly on consciousness, metaphysics, spiritual philosophy, and inner development. His material also encompasses more esoteric elements such as ancient mystery school knowledge, European medieval & early modern period mysticism, emanationism, and theories of divine ascendance.

Kramer is a self-proclaimed autodidact, almost entirely self-taught and self-directed, with a broad knowledge of philosophy, spiritual traditions, mysticism, psychology, and esoteric world history – all of which he uses to formulate his cosmology and practice. He has studied with several organizations focused on the wisdom of the ancient world, though is not formally affiliated with any specific groups. Kramer consistently highlights the importance of applying any abstract theory into the actual felt experience of everyday life before it can accrue any real value as true wisdom. He is known for frequently juxtaposing high-level intellectual metaphysics alongside hands-on, integrated life practices.

From 2006 to 2011, Kramer published essays, writings, audio interviews, and videos on his blog “The Cleaver”. The Cleaver became widely respected and referenced within free-thinking and alternative communities, attracting interest from various spiritual, metaphysical, political, religious, new age, conspiracy, and countercultural audiences. Kramer’s synthesis of spiritual insight, social comment, anti-authoritarianism, deep knowledge-base, inventive language, and no-nonsense approach, gradually built him a large international audience. An audiobook of his essays from 2006 to 2009 was released under the title of the Audio Cleaver in 2009, read by Kramer himself. In February 2011, much of The Cleaver content was moved to his new web site neilkramer.com, where there was additional emphasis on spoken word interviews. In May 2012, his book “The Unfoldment” was published.

Guest Biography:

John Matarazzo
Soothe the Mind, Body and Soul with a blend of Ambient, New Age, Spa and World Music from new project Logical Drift

New York, NY (PRWeb) May 31dit, 2011 - Music veteran writer, composer, producer and performer, John Matarazzo, has been accompanied by legendary engineer and producer Logan Strand to form LOGICAL DRIFT; a new project with a whole lot of history. Over the years, Matarazzo has worked on major records, and performed with popular acts (Blood Sweat & Tears, Bob Dylan, Ike & Tina Turner, Sly & The Family Stone, etc.) where he was then led to work on more conscious and spiritually driven projects helping to create pioneering recordings of ambient and electronica music (John Zorn, Jah Wobble, Mick Harris and Buckethead).

Reaching success in these genres, Matarazzo then began to invite more established world artists to work with him on a variety of projects (Ravi Shankar, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Herbie Hancock, Lee "Scratch" Perry, The Gamelan Of Bali, Lata Mangeshcar, The Monks Of Notre Dame, and Buddhist Monks of Maitri Vihar Monastery Tibet). With an established world music catalog that expanded Matarazzo's existing discography, he then journeyed off to field recording and performance projects taking him to places as far away as Bali, Indonesia, Sumatra, Tibet, North Africa and Morocco, Mali and Thailand. Continuing his spiritual path, Matarazzo's interests grew into experimenting with psychological compositions and electronic music elements instituted by Karl Heinz Stockhausen and Pierre Boulez; adapting them to create psychological dreamscapes and aural environments designed to evoke spiritual responses from the listener that may heighten the listener's overall growth in spirituality. Synthesizing sounds in acoustic laboratories, Matarazzo was able to develop a palette of unique and emotionally resonant sounds from simple sine wave generators overlaying harmonic spectrums and resonating filters that infused evocative and sensual aural landscapes and alternative worlds.

Combining his knowledge of ancient spiritual systems, psychoacoustics and aural imaging, he composed soundscapes that heighten the listeners' sense of wellness and tranquility; stimulating the Chakra portals, thereby carrying the listener on a journey toward greater awareness and aliveness. His aim is to author music that will provide an important map for our wholeness and transformation, both personally and globally by opening the Chakra paths to enlightenment and integration.

Comprised of six thought provoking tracks, the first LOGICAL DRIFT project represents the most recent incantation of the musical concepts and explorations of Matarazzo's career in a community of ambient, world and new age music. Better said, the album notes tell us "From the ancient port of Joffa on the Mediterranean traveling east, across the windswept Judean Desert the weary caravan traveler comes to the legendary Oasis of En Gedi. Set on the banks of the Dead Sea; Covered in lush, hanging gardens, sparkling waterfalls and murmuring fountains, it is a place of relaxation and refreshment for body and spirit". Just listening to inviting track titles as 'Judean Desert' and 'Shenandoah Pslam', you'll be able to hear a soothing, yet almost healing ailment that can move listeners on a psychological and spiritual journey of pure bliss.

LOGICAL DRIFT has also created a New Age Definitions page to initiate an educational outlet. Understanding that likeminded projects within the alternative medicine, metaphysics, music therapy, musical healing, naturopathy and spa communities continue to support each other's overall initiatives in order to increase awareness within the ever growing alternative education and new age community, the LOGICAL DRIFT project will be developing a research network to aid in this effort. LOGICAL DRIFT is inviting all walks of life within the alternative education and new age communities to bring forth their projects for networking opportunities.

P.M.H. Atwater, L.H.D., Ph.D., Authority on Near Death, Near Death Researcher, Scientist, Author, Writer, Columnist, Director, Forms Analyst, Entrepreneur, Altered States Investigator, Hypnotist, Numerologist, Astrologer, Speaker and Therapeutic Counselor
Guest Occupation: Authority on Near Death, Near Death Researcher, Scientist, Author, Writer, Columnist, Director, Forms Analyst, Entrepreneur, Altered States Investigator, Hypnotist, Numerologist, Astrologer, Speaker, Therapeutic Counselor
Guest Biography:

PMH Atwater An international authority on near-death states, Dr. Atwater uses the culmination of her research to establish that the near-death phenomenon is not some kind of anomaly, but is rather part of the larger genre of transformations of consciousness. She combines her 33 years of near-death research with what she was doing in the 60s and 70s, experiencing, experimenting with, and researching altered states of consciousness, mysticism, psychic phenomena, and the transformational process, to reveal what transformations of consciousness really are, why we have them, and where they lead us. This lifetime endeavor covers over 43 years of work, involving nearly 7,000 people.

Her meticulous and unique protocol gives validity to what she has discovered and verified, and to the link that can be made between what is happening in the Middle East and the percentage worldwide of people who have undergone near-death experiences. A tipping point has been reached, a shared reality has emerged. . . for a leaderless, global, revolution in consciousness!

Her groundbreaking contributions continue with Near-Death Experiences: The Rest of The Story, examining the phenomena of:

Group experiences
"Heaven" and "Hell"
"Light" encounters
Aftereffects including unusual or amplified sensitivities
Spiritual transformations and societal implications

Basing her findings on extensive first person interviews as well as scientific studies of the deeper structures of the brain, Near-Death Experiences: The Rest of The Story is a rational examination of an experience that defies ordinary reason the first book to tackle this difficult and controversial subject from both the scientific and spiritual perspectives.

Bruce Greyson, M.D., Ph.D., Near Death Researcher, Professor, Psychiatrist, Neurobehavioral Scientist, Founder International Association for Near-Death Studies, Editor and Writer
Guest Occupation: Near Death Researcher, Professor, Psychiatrist, Neurobehavioral Scientist, Founder International Association for Near-Death Studies, Editor, Writer
Guest Biography:

World renown researcher of near death experiences, Bruce Greyson M.D., is one of the first to gather empirical data on the subject using accepted scientific methods. His vast amount of data taken from patient and medical professionals strongly suggests that our minds not only continue to function after physical death, but do so in a clear and lucid fashion. Dr. Greyson also directs the Division of Perceptual Studies at the University of Virginia Health System, where many other experiences are studied. Research of children who remember past lives, out of body experiences, deathbed visions, apparitions and after-death communications all suggest that our consciousness is not something that is extinguished upon physical death.

Bruce Greyson, M.D., is the Chester F. Carlson Professor of Psychiatry & Neurobehavioral Sciences and Director of the Division of Perceptual Studies at the University of Virginia. He was a founder and Past President of the International Association for Near-Death Studies, and for the past 26 years has edited the Journal of Near-Death Studies. Dr. Greyson graduated from Cornell University with a major in psychology in 1968, received his medical degree from the State University of New York Upstate Medical College in 1973, and completed his psychiatric residency at the University of Virginia in 1976. He held faculty appointments in psychiatry at the University of Michigan (1978-1984) and the University of Connecticut (1984-1995), where he was Clinical Chief of Psychiatry, before returning to the University of Virginia, where he has practiced and taught psychiatry and carried out research since 1995. His research for the past three decades has focused on near-death experiences and has resulted in more than 70 presentations to national scientific conferences, more than 100 publications in academic medical and psychological journals, 3 edited books, and several research grants and awards.


BIO BELOW FROM: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bruce_Greyson

Bruce Greyson is a researcher in the field of near-death studies and has been called the father of research in near-death experiences.[2][3] Greyson, along with Kenneth Ring, Michael Sabom, and others, built on the research of Raymond Moody, Russell Noyes Jr and Elisabeth Kübler-Ross. Greyson's scale to measure the aspects of near-death experiences[4] has been widely used, being cited 95 times as of early 2010.[5] He also devised a 19-item scale to assess experience of kundalini, the Physio-Kundalini Scale.[6]

Greyson wrote the overview of Near Death Experiences for the Encyclopædia Britannica and was the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Near-Death Studies (formerly Anabiosis) from 1982 through 2007. Greyson has been interviewed or consulted many times in the press on the subject of near-death experiences.[7][8][9][10][11][12][13]

Joe Meadors
Guest Occupation: Navy Signalman, U.S.S. Liberty Survivor, President of U.S.S. Liberty Veterans Association
Guest Biography:

Joe Meadors was a U.S. Navy signalman on the USS Liberty on June 8, 1967 when Israel attacked and tried to sink the ship. He was on the bridge throughout the attack and has described seeing Israeli forces machine-gunning life rafts. He is past president and current director of operations of the USS Liberty Veterans Association, which is calling for a full investigation on the attack and subsequent cover-up by Israel and the U.S. government. In 2010 he participated in a flotilla of boats that tried to break the Israeli blockade of Gaza by taking humanitarian goods directly to Gaza. Joe was taken prisoner with the other passengers when Israeli forces hijacked the boat at sea, in violation of international law.


On June 8, 1967, US Navy intelligence ship USS Liberty was suddenly and brutally attacked on the high seas in international waters by the air and naval forces of Israel. The Israeli forces attacked with full knowledge that this was an American ship and lied about it. Survivors have been forbidden for 40 years to tell their story under oath to the American public. The USS Liberty Memorial web site tells their story and is dedicated to the memory of the 34 brave men who died.

The Attack

After surveilling USS Liberty for more than nine hours with almost hourly aircraft overflights and radar tracking, the air and naval forces of Israel attacked our ship in international waters without warning. USS Liberty was identified as a US naval ship by Israeli reconnaissance aircraft nine hours before the attack and continuously tracked by Israeli radar and aircraft thereafter. Sailing in international waters at less than five knots, with no offensive armament, our ship was not a military threat to anyone.

The Israeli forces attacked without warning and without attempting to contact us. Thirty four Americans were killed in the attack and another 174 were wounded.   The ship, a $40-million dollar state-of-the-art signals intelligence platform, was later declared unsalvageable and sold for scrap.

The Cover Up

Despite a near-universal consensus that the Israeli attack was made with full knowledge that USS Liberty was a US Navy ship, the Johnson administration began an immediate cover-up of this fact. Though administration officers continued individually to characterize the attack as deliberate, the Johnson administration never sought the prosecution of the guilty parties or otherwise attempted to seek justice for the victims. They concealed and altered evidence in their effort to downplay the attack. Though they never formally accepted the Israeli explanation that it was an accident, they never pressed for a full investigation either. They simply allowed those responsible literally to get away with murder.

In an ongoing effort to reveal the truth about the attack, the USS Liberty Veterans Association has filed with the Secretary of the Army in the manner prescribed by law a detailed, fully documented Report of War Crimes describing the circumstances of the attack on our ship and evidence that it was a crime under international law. In accordance with international law and treaties, the United States is obligated to investigate the allegations. So far, the United States has declined even to acknowledge that the report has been filed. The full text of the report can be found at http://www.gtr5.com/evidence/warcrimes.pdf

Anti-Semitism and the Anti-American Apologists

The USS Liberty Memorial web site abhors the racist and extreme positions taken by antiSemitic, Holocaust denial, conspiracy theorist and other such groups which often seek to identify with us and to usurp our story as their own. We have no connection with and do not support or encourage support from any of these groups including National Alliance, National Vanguard, The New Order, National Socialists, The French Connection, Liberty Lobby, American Free Press, Republic Broadcasting, USS Liberty Radio Hour, Storm Front or other such groups. We wish harm to no one and encourage social justice and equality for everyone; we seek only accountability for the criminal acts perpetrated against us and can do that without help from hate-mongers.

On the Israeli side, the group of pro-Israel, anti-American critics of our story, while small, persists in launching loud, vicious ad hominem attacks on anyone who attempts to discuss the deliberateness of the attack. These anti-American apologists refuse to discuss the facts of the case. Instead, they rely on propaganda and charge anyone who questions the Israeli position with being antiSemitic.

For detailed and authoritative accounts of the power and influence of the pro-Israel lobby, please see The Israel Lobby and US Foreign Policy by Mearsheimer and Walt and The Pro-Israel Lobby by Edward Herman.

The Betrayal of American Veterans
Americans who volunteer for military service effectively write a blank check, payable to the United States of America for an amount "up to and including my life." The United States, in turn, promises to spend these checks responsibly. That bargain implicitly includes a promise by the United States to protect them and to seek retribution against anyone who harms them. In the case of USS Liberty, the United States has failed to keep its end of the bargain.

Paul Larudee
Guest Occupation: Teacher, Lecturer, U.S. Government Advisor, Solidarity Movement Activist, Co-Founder Free Palestine Movement, Co-Founder Free Gaza Movement, Doctor of Linguistics, Training Administrator, Humanitarian, Professor
Guest Biography:

Dr. Paul Larudee spent 14 years in Arab countries as a student, teacher, Fulbright-Hays lecturer, and U.S. government advisor. He has been to Palestine many times since 1965, and is active with the International Solidarity Movement, a nonviolent resistance group. He is a co-founder of the Free Palestine Movement (FPM) and the Free Gaza Movement (FGM), whose boats broke a 41-year-old Israeli naval blockade of Gaza in August, 2008, and he was a member of the U.S. delegation aboard the Gaza Freedom Flotilla, which was attacked by Israeli forces on May 31, 2010.


Paul Larudee was born to an Iranian Presbyterian minister and his American missionary spouse in 1946 and grew up in the American Midwest. He has a Ph.D. in linguistics from Georgetown University and spent 14 years in Arab countries as a contracted U.S. government advisor, Fulbright-Hays exchange lecturer, teacher, training administrator and graduate student.

Paul has visited the Palestinian region many times since 1965, including four times with the International Solidarity Movement, a Palestinian-led movement that applies nonviolent principles to resist Israeli human rights violations. Paul was among seven ISM volunteers wounded by Israeli gunfire in April, 2002 in an otherwise nonviolent attempt to help Palestinian families. In 2006, he was held in Israeli detention for two weeks while unsuccessfully appealing a decision to deny him entry. He helped organize nonviolent resistance in Lebanon during the 2006 Israeli invasion. He is one of the founders of the Free Gaza Movement, whose boats, on August 23, 2008, became the first in 41 years to enter Gaza by sea, breaking the Israeli naval blockade. He is also a founder of the Free Palestine Movement, which also seeks to challenge Israel's blockade and denial of access to all of Palestine by sea, air and land.

Paul, a former student of Noam Chomsky, became a Professor of Linguistics himself and remains a good friend and colleague of Professor Chomsky. Working with the NorCal branch of the International Solidarity Movement, Paul is very much a believer in and practitioner of Gandhi's principles of non-violence. Paul was one of the 5 USA delegates aboard the Sfendoni, a ship of the Freedom flotilla attempting to bring humanitarian aid to Gaza.

When Israeli commandos boarded the Sfendoni in 2010, Paul non-violently resisted, refused to sign any papers without his lawyer and as a result the Israelis tased, tied-up, twisted his limbs, slammed his head into concrete repeatedly, and hit him with a flash bomb. Paul suffered multiple bruises, 2 black eyes, but refused to be treated by Israeli doctors as he did not trust them, especially since he suffers from Diabetes and needed special treatment and compatible medication. Paul was kept in prison for two days at Givon Prison, Ramle, Israel.

Paul also serves on the steering committee of Syria Solidarity Movement...

Origins of the Syria Solidarity Movement

In the summer of 2012, a loose network of social justice activists in the Middle East, Europe and North America that had worked together in previous projects related to Palestine, Lebanon and Egypt began to discuss forms of action with respect to the crisis in Syria.  They were concerned that nearly all the discourse in the West was in favor of military conflict and imperialist interests.  One of them, Eva Bartlett, created a list serve to provide a means of sharing information and discussion.
In August, some of the activists met at the Anti-Imperialist Camp in Assisi, Italy and formed a small delegation that went to Syria soon after.  For the remainder of the year, they made plans for a larger international delegation to go to Syria on a solidarity and fact-finding mission in order to bring back informed recommendations and a different narrative for promulgation.
Simultaneously and independently, the Syrian Mussalaha (“Reconciliation”) movement, which had formed in December, 2011, began taking its message to the West, largely through the efforts of Mother Agnes-Mariam of the Cross, Mother Superior of the Monastery of St. James the Mutilated near Qara, Syria.  She made contact with Nobel Peace Laureate Mairead Maguire, and did speaking tours of Australia and Ireland, and by the end of 2012, they, too, were making plans for an international delegation to Syria.
The Mussalaha delegation eventually took place in May, 2013, under the leadership of Mairead Maguire, with Mussalaha as the host organization, with Mother Agnes-Mariam as their representative.  Following the delegation, a number of subscribers to the nosyriaintervention list serve decided to try to create a North America speaking tour for Mother Agnes.  They therefore formed a nonprofit organization to sponsor the tour and, more generally, to provide alternate Syrian views of the crisis, to study alternate means of resolution and to pursue an end to the crisis, based upon principles set forth in the mission statement of the new organization.
On this basis, the Syria Solidarity Movement formed a Steering Committee, which designed and implemented the Mother Agnes-Mariam North America speaking tour and intends to undertake similar projects in support of its mission.

Michael P. Mau, Ph.D., Author
Guest Occupation: Author
Guest Biography:

Michael P. Mau, Ph.D.,  is the author / editor of, The Sanctus Germanus Prophecies

My mediumship for the Great Brotherhood of Light is relatively recent, so I can make no claim to possessing a natural gift of clairvoyance from childhood. In fact, my clairvoyant and clairaudient faculties have only been gradually opening up over the past five years and continue to do so under a systematic training program designed and coached by certain disincarnate adepts of the Brotherhood.

During a particularly low point in my life I took some time off from my business in Asia to return to Honolulu, my hometown. It had been over thirty years since I had left and I was not really sure why I wanted to go back there. From my perspective today, I now understand when the Masters want me to travel to such and such a place, images of this destination dance in my mind until I actually arrive there.

I arrived in a bewildered state. Outwardly, I appeared content and successful to many of my old friends and relatives but inwardly something was gnawing at me. Two of my novels had just been published in Asia, but after the momentary thrill of being a published author, the feeling of discontent returned. Perhaps it had been precipitated by the breakup with a love partner and the death of my mother a few years before. Yet, after the grieving over these two events had run their course, the deep sense of dissatisfaction returned. It was clear that these traumatic emotional events had triggered within me a general malaise.

Guest Occupation: Physician, Author, AIDS Issues Activist, Researcher, Writer, Lecturer, Geopolitical Expert, Radio Show Host
Guest Biography:

For over a decade, prior to his retirement, Dr. Monteith led a delegation of physicians from Santa Cruz County to the House of Delegates of the California Medical Association. For 10 years he led the battle within organized medicine in California to address the AIDS epidemic as a medical issue rather than a civil rights issue. As a result of his experiences trying to implement an effective medical approach to the HIV epidemic, he wrote the book, "AIDS:The Unnecessary Epidemic", the widely circulated pamphlet, "To Deceive a Nation", and more recently, "A Nation Deceived and Betrayed." Supported by physicians across our nation, his public health approach to the HIV epidemic was eventually accepted by the California Medical Association. Unfortunately, powerful forces continue to oppose the dictates of doctors. Dr. Monteith currently spends five hours daily on talk radio in California. He writes extensively, and lectures on geopolitics. He has spent 30 years researching the causes for America's spiritual and moral decline.
