Irvin Rosenfeld, Medical Marijuana Patient, Stockbroker, Bone Tumor Survivor and Author
Guest Occupation: Medical Marijuana Patient, Stockbroker, Bone Tumor Survivor, Author
Guest Biography:

Mr. Rosenfeld's story in his testimony before the State of Michigan Committee on Government Operations on Tuesday November 28th, 2006: "I appreciate coming to the great state of Michigan. My name is Irvin Rosenfeld and I am the longest surviving Federal Medical Marijuana patient in the United States. There are five patients currently in the country and there will only be five because the Bush Administration shut down the program in 1992.

I have severe a bone disorder. This caused bone tumors to grow all throughout my body, growing into the muscles and the veins. As a teenager, I had many operations. I was using all kinds of drugs and I was an advocate against marijuana in the late 1960's. Why would a healthy person use an illegal drug when I would hold up my baggie (of pills) and say look at what I have to take, be thankful you're healthy.

I went to college in Miami in 1971 and there, against peer pressure, I tried marijuana and it did nothing to me. I didn't get high, it did nothing to me. People around me were getting high, I thought they were self inducing it. About the tenth time I did it, I sat and played a game of chess for 30 minutes and I hate chess. I used to have trouble sitting and I sat for 30 minutes. That was the first time in 5 years I did that. I had morphine, I had Quaalude, these were all prescription. It dawned on me that I hadn't taken a pill for about 6 hours. This was the first time I had done that in 5 years."

Jeff Berlin, Electric Bass Player, Music Teacher, Columnist, Recording Artist and Top Electric Jazz Bassist
Guest Occupation: Electric Bass Player, Music Teacher, Columnist, Recording Artist, Top Electric Jazz Bassist
Guest Biography:

Music has been the reason that I get up every morning (that, and my kids kneeing me in the stomach at 7am). I'm an electric bass player and I've won awards, toured the world many times over, and played a million concerts world-wide. I've played with nearly every great drummer, guitarist, pianist and horn player that are out there today. Many people regard me as the best electric jazz bassist in the world (does this include all the dimensions times infinity?)

One dark cloud was the cancer that overtook my son. When he became sick, I retired from playing and stayed home with my boy to take care of him. In order to make a living, I started The Players School of Music in Clearwater, Florida. This way I could stay in Clearwater and put a little attention on music through the explanation and demonstration of it to my students.

Two good things happened; my son was cured of his cancer, and The Players School has become one of the finest schools to learn how to play bass, piano, drums or guitar. I'm touring a lot, which, after all, is the name of the game. Nothing replaces the experience of reaching for new music every night in front of an appreciative audience. Keep an eye out for us. I tour with Danny Gottlieb on drums (Danny played drums with Pat Metheny for years), Othello Molineaux (the steel drum player who played in Jaco Pastorius' band) and Richard Drexler on piano and upright bass (Richard came out of the Woody Herman Orchestra). It is maybe the smokingest jazz ensemble I ever played in.

I am a practicing fool because I have this really deep need not to imitate as a bassist. I grant you that it is hard to find totally new bass concepts. But, if you don't look for them, then how can you find SOMETHING that is yours alone? I don't have the technique that many young players have today. And so I rely on my imagination to find new ideas that might be impactful to the people who listen to me. I recently found a totally new way to play the bass guitar, a method of playing that has opened many harmonic doors for me. I will showcase this method on a future recording of mine.

Jazz is my passion when I wear the leader's hat. I have found a lot of new ways to approach the electric bass that I am quite proud of. But, as a sideman, I can play funk like a swamp rat sitting on a hotplate, and I can rock like a rotweiller chained up in front of a piece of ribeye. I've been working hard to find a producer with some forward vision of giving the 4 or 8 bar solo on a pop tune to me instead of the guitar or the synth player. But, so far, the concept seems laughable to most producers. "A BASS PLAYER? PLAYING A SOLO? ON A BEYONCE RECORD?" I didn't realize that my instrument, for all the visibility it has achieved over the years, still is not regarded that highy in the music industry. I am out to change this, if I can.

Regarding the fans that I have, I have noticed over the years that fans of rock music often had a broader appreciation of music in other styles than some jazz fans have had. Rock fans have been incredibly supportive of my music and therefore I would like to say Thank You for all you have done and said about my bass playing. This does not go unnoticed.

I will keep you posted about gigs and new projects that I am involved in. To those people who have supported me and my playing, I send you my love and thanks.

Best to all, Jeff

Reflection on the Evolution of my Research, Scholarship and Teaching: Setting the Context for my Work
Four decades ago my early focus began in the areas of Logic, Ontology and the Philosophy of Language. My primary concern over the years has been to seek to advance the perennial search for the fundamental grammars of thought (logic of consciousness), the grammars of reality (formal ontology) and the deep structures of language and discourse (logic of natural reason). .

Research and Teaching Interests: philosophy of logic and language; global ontology; global and comparative philosophy; global ethics; global wisdom; Hindu, Buddhist, and Zen tradition in global contexts

Guest Occupation: Attorney, Contractor, Author, Photographer, Artist, Extraterrestrial Contactee, Psychologist, Pole Shift Researcher, Planet X Investigator, Beekeeper
Guest Biography:

BIO BELOW FROM: http://poleshift.ning.com/profile/GordonJamesGianninoto

Gordon James Gianninoto - Attorney, Contractor, Author, Photographer, Artist, and Extraterrestrial Contactee

He had many childhood UFO and ET encounters. He saw his first UFO in 1964, a one mile diameter mothership launching 3 saucers over San Juan PR harbor. Selected as a future astronaut at age 15 he received a grant from the National Science Foundation to study astronomy, astrophysics, and space science at the Hayden Planetarium in NYC. He attended the University of Virginia School of Aerospace Engineering, but later got a degree in psychology at the University of New Haven, Connecticut. While going to law school in New Hampshire, at Franklin Pierce Law Center, now UNH Law, he worked as an intern at the United Nations Center on Transnational Corporations on a Code of Moral Conduct for Transnational Corporations. Upon graduation he worked as a hearing officer for the Environmental Board of the State of Vermont before opening up a trial law practice in Connecticut. After having worked his way through High School, college and law school as a contractor, he decided to prepare for poleshift by moving to Maine in 1985 where he has worked as a commercial fisherman and contractor since.

In a lifetime of many many psychic, telepathic, and ET experience, he had his first vision of pole shift 1973 in a long and detailed dream and had a waking vision of same thing 1988. He long realized a pole shift would bring open contact with ETs. Together with his wife of 22 years, Janet, they have seen dozens of ET ships and have had all manner of voluntary, positive contact experiences. Their favorite UFO activity was spending 3 days with Dr. John Mack, Dr. Rudolf Schild, and Dr. Edgar Mitchell in Rangeley, Maine in 2003.

Living on a mountain top blueberry farm on the Maine coast, Gordon is also a licensed shortwave radio operator and a beekeeper. His wife is a psychic and a shaman, with many ET contacts herself. Looking around to see who was saying what they were saying, they discovered Zetatalk in 2006 and have become strong supporters. For more than 20 years they have lectured widely, and in many radio interviews on the approach of Planet X, Poleshift, and the aftertime involving open contact with unselfish ETs and frequency or dimensional change for the entire earth within 100 years after poleshift. Many of his interviews are available for free on Youtube, and his writings are regularly published in UFO DIGEST, on line.

Gordon James Gianninoto will bring a lifetime of ET contact, telepathy, psychic experiences and visions as he describes how we are about to experience Pole Shift - the crust of the planet separating from the core and reattaching. The event will bring unimagined challenges to our lives.

Gordon has been on over 700 broadcast, satellite, shortwave, and internet radio stations. It is safe to say that between 20 and 50 million people have listened to his inspiring descriptions of our future and what we can do about it, for it and with it. Gordon has been interviewed many times by George Noory, Kevin Smith, Daniel Ott, Robert Pepino, Michael Vara, Robert Schmalzbach, Christopher Rudy, and many others. A frequent comment of those attending his presentations is that 'There are things I hoped, things I felt, things I thought about, but were never able to express. You put these things into words, touching me deeply, and changing me forever. Thank you."

METAPHYSIA 2012 is an Award-Winning, feature-length documentary film that explores the mysteries behind the prophetic Maya end-date of 2012, as no other film has before.

Being described as a Cinematic Vision Quest, Metaphysia is a fascinating adventure story into the very heart of our modern-day predicament, revealing a stunning new vision for the future to a growing global audience “Being Shifted” by the film’s inspirational message.

Metaphysia documents the cross-country journey of American writer and producer, Sean M. Fisher, as he searches for deeper meaning amidst the rapid-fire changes of the New Century. Beginning with very practical questions in mind, Fisher soon finds himself facing an unexpected series of mysterious events:  including sudden synchronistic meetings, multi-dimensional communications, and remarkable animal encounters in Nature - all drawing him deep into the consideration of a fascinating new world of metaphysical thought.

Unfolding like a metaphysical Odyssey, including inspired meetings with Native American Visionaries, Shamans, Metaphysical Scientists, Artists, Healers, Trance Channels and some of today's most accomplished Metaphysical Teachers and Authors, Metaphysia 2012 reveals a breathtaking scope of new information about Consciousness, Healing, Evolution, Metaphysics, Global Warming, Water, 2012, Prophecy, Astrology, Buddhism, Indigenous Wisdom and more.

Being hailed as "one of the most original and thought-provoking Documentary journeys in years" and "culminating in one of the most emotional and climactic Native American scenes in Documentary," METAPHYSIA 2012 is quickly becoming the definitive independent film of its genre and quite possibly the last 2012 Documentary you will ever need to see.

Marianne Weidlein, Facilitator, Mentor, Author, Peak Performance Coach, Human Potential Developer and Entrepreneur
Guest Occupation: Facilitator, Mentor, Author, Peak Performance Coach, Human Potential Developer, Entrepreneur
Guest Biography:

I am a facilitator, mentor, and author, with expertise in self-mastery, peak performance, relationship, intentional manifestation, and self-employment. I bring 40+ years of experience in business, human potential development, and awakening spiritual awareness to help people achieve peace, success, and freedom on all levels. I hold a BSBA; yet my most relevant education and training are from life experience, my work, and my connection with Source.

My life has served a gamut of untold awakenings, pain and loss learning the hard way, and peak experiences. Through this I developed skill with discipline and perseverance, transmuting self-limiting patterns to their positive equivalents, raising vibrational frequency, and retraining the brain to focus on positive intention. This richly endowed me with an ardent reverence for integrity, and the ability to gracefully navigate the mystery of life.

Since 1985, likewise impassioned to catalyze others, I have developed a varied repertoire of techniques and curricula, facilitated innumerable individual, partner, and group programs of widely varying topics, formats, sizes, and lengths, and published several books.

I discovered that while people gain information, heightened awareness, and a good time participating in groups, many lack the ability to apply what they learn to their everyday experiences. Through this I learned that making lasting change requires regular facilitation and support, so in 1995, I began providing one-on-one telephone support.

Initially, I helped clients to remove self-limiting patterns while they developed or upgraded their businesses. As I discovered what causes people to succeed and fail, I developed facilitation skill with self-mastery, peak performance, relationship, leadership, and intentional manifestation.

I have worked with people of all ages in many countries, who are dedicated to developing their highest potential and freeing self-limitation. Now, my bliss, skill, and leading honor are in facilitating committed, gifted women to cultivate their magnificence!

My books and manuals are: Empowering Vision For Dreamers, Visionaries & Other Entrepreneurs (1991) and now on my website; warm liquid life (1993); It's All Up to Me and other courses on my website; and The Passage to Freedom manuscript.

In 1991, I was a Colorado Entrepreneur of the Year Nominee. I am a mother and grandmother, and deeply grateful for Source and the spectrum of life that moves through me.

Nick Pope, Author, Journalist, TV Personality, U.K. Government Ministry of Defense Employee, UFO Researcher, Media Commentator, Writer, Broadcaster, Lecturer and Novelist
Guest Occupation: Author, Journalist, TV Personality, U.K. Government Ministry of Defense Employee, UFO Researcher, Media Commentator, Writer, Broadcaster, Lecturer, Novelist
Guest Biography:

BIO BELOW FROM: http://www.nickpope.net/biography-extended.htm

Author, journalist and TV personality Nick Pope worked for the British government for 21 years, at the Ministry of Defence.  In the course of his career, he served in a number of different posts, but is best known for work that he did between 1991 and 1994, when he was posted to a division where his duties included investigating reports of Unidentified Flying Objects.  The purpose of these investigations was to see whether anything reported might pose any threat to the defence of the United Kingdom, or suggest the existence of anything that might be of more general defence interest.  Most sightings turned out to be misidentifications of ordinary objects or phenomena, but a small percentage remained unexplained.  Contrary to popular belief, there was no definitive evidence that any of these sightings were extraterrestrial in origin.  However, the Ministry of Defence remained open-minded about the possibilities and took no position on the existence of extraterrestrial life. 

Nick Pope was initially sceptical about UFOs, but his official research and investigation convinced him that whatever the nature of the sightings that remained unexplained, the UFO phenomenon raised important defence, national security and air safety issues.  He was particularly interested in cases where the witnesses were pilots, or where UFOs were tracked on radar. 

More recently, Nick Pope has been involved in the programme to declassify and release the MoD’s UFO files and send them to the National Archives.  This involved selecting some cases that would be of interest to the media, making a film to promote the release and giving newspaper, TV and radio interviews to publicise the story.

Nick Pope left the Ministry of Defence in 2006.  He now works as a freelance journalist and media commentator, writing and broadcasting on a wide range of subjects, including UFOs, the unexplained, conspiracy theories, fringe science, defence, intelligence, space and science fiction. 

Nick Pope works with a wide range of film companies, TV networks and production companies, helping develop ideas for new films, TV shows and documentaries.  He contributes regularly to various news programmes, chat shows and documentaries. 

Nick Pope works with various PR, marketing and advertising agencies, promoting sci-fi films and advertising campaigns themed around the unexplained.  He has worked for clients that include Microsoft, 20th Century Fox and Sony Pictures and has been involved in promoting The X-Files: I Want To Believe and the remake of The Day The Earth Stood Still

Nick Pope lectures all around the world and this has included addressing the Oxford Union and the Cambridge Union Society, as well as speaking at the Science Museum, the Royal Albert Hall and Global Competitiveness Forum 2011. 

Nick Pope has written four books, all of which have been published by Simon & Schuster.  His non-fiction books are Open Skies Closed Minds, about UFOs, and The Uninvited, about the alien abduction mystery.  Both books made the Top Ten in the Sunday Times list of hardback non-fiction books, with Open Skies Closed Minds reaching number three and staying in the Top Ten for ten weeks.  These books have been translated into various foreign languages.  Nick Pope has also written two science fiction novels about an alien invasion, Operation Thunder Child and Operation Lightning Strike.  There have been discussions about producing a film or a TV miniseries based on these books.

Nick Pope lives in California.

Roger Nygard, Film Director, Producer, Editor and Writer
Guest Occupation: Film Director, Producer, Editor, Writer
Guest Biography:

Roger Nygard was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and grew up along the shores of Lake Minnetonka. His father, Roger Nygard, Sr., was an executive at General Mills in charge of buying the trainloads of grain used to make Wheaties and Cheerios. Nygard graduated from Orono High School, and received a Bachelor of Arts in Speech-Communications from the University of Minnesota in 1984.

Nygard has extensive credits in film and television as a director, writer, producer and editor. He made his foray into the movie world in 1991 when he directed the low budget indie, High Strung, starring comedian/actor Steve Oedekerk, Fred Willard, Denise Crosby, and a very young Kirsten Dunst. The tagline reads: “The story of a guy with a few too many hang ups.” The movie has achieved cult status.

Lots of television and film directing and editing credits followed like Back to Back, which may be best known for having blown Bobcat Goldthwait to bits. It was during this time he that he was developing a reputation for working on quirky and unique projects. He realized he could combine what intrigued him with his “day job” and so Nygard the documentarian emerged as part of the overall package.

Trekkies was the first project to allow Nygard to explore his interest in human nature; people dressing up as fictional characters and extraterrestrials fascinated him. His partner in the project, Denise Crosby, first pitched Nygard the idea. He said, “I couldn’t believe nobody had done it yet, it seemed so obvious.” Trekkies has been described as “affectionate, nonjudgmental” (Hollywood Reporter & Daily Variety), or “terrifying, unsettling” (National Post), depending on who you ask.

He also produced and edited a compelling and offbeat look at UFO enthusiasts (which included writer Whitley Streiber, and nuclear-physicist & ufologist Stanton T. Friedman) called Six Days In Roswell. The film was called “…pants-peeing funny!” by Film Threat Magazine. The car salesman subculture also fascinated Nygard, and he co-wrote (with Joe Yannetty) and directed the outrageous cult favorite, Suckers. The movie stars Louis Mandylor, Lori Loughlin, and Daniel Benzali as one scary sales manager from hell. Suckers is often used as a training film at car dealerships. The Minneapolis Star Tribune said, “…Roger Nygard’s exhilaratingly cynical car salesman film Suckers has the macho punch of a David Mamet drama.”

While tackling feature interests like Trekkies 2, and sometimes lending support to a colleague’s project as an editor or producer, Nygard has directed or edited for an array of television series like: The Mind of the Married Man, The Bernie Mac Show, The Office,  The League, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Zoey 101, Zeke and Luther, etc., as well as directing commercials for such companies as Kia, Boost Mobile, DisneyXD, CBS, TBS, and others. For Nygard it comes down to whether a project is intriguing, funny, or challenging. In the case of his latest film, The Nature of Existence it’s all the above.

Graham Hancock, Author, Public Lecturer, Uncoventialal Thinker, Historian, Sociologist, Journalist, Writer, Editor, TV Series Host and Supernatural Researcher
Guest Occupation: Author, Public Lecturer, Uncoventialal Thinker, Historian, Sociologist, Journalist, Writer, Editor, TV Series Host, Supernatural Researcher
Guest Biography:

GRAHAM HANCOCK is the author of the major international bestsellers The Sign and The Seal, Fingerprints of the Gods, and Heaven's Mirror. His books have sold more than five million copies worldwide and have been translated into 27 languages. His public lectures, radio and TV appearances, including two major TV series for Channel 4 in the UK and The Learning Channel in the US - Quest For The Lost Civilisation and Flooded Kingdoms of the Ice Age - have put his ideas before audiences of tens of millions. He has become recognised as an unconventional thinker who raises controversial questions about humanity's past.

Born in Edinburgh, Scotland, Hancock's early years were spent in India, where his father worked as a surgeon. Later he went to school and university in the northern English city of Durham and graduated from Durham University in 1973 with First Class Honours in Sociology. He went on to pursue a career in quality journalism, writing for many of Britain's leading newspapers including The Times, The Sunday Times, The Independent, and The Guardian. He was co-editor of New Internationalist magazine from 1976-1979 and East Africa correspondent of The Economist from 1981-1983.

In the early 1980's Hancock's writing began to move consistently in the direction of books. His first book (Journey Through Pakistan, with photographers Mohamed Amin and Duncan Willetts) was published in 1981. It was followed by Under Ethiopian Skies (1983), co-authored with Richard Pankhurst and photographed by Duncan Willets , Ethiopia: The Challenge of Hunger (1984), and AIDS: The Deadly Epidemic (1986) co-authored with Enver Carim. In 1987 Hancock began work on his widely-acclaimed critique of foreign aid, Lords of Poverty, which was published in 1989. African Ark (with photographers Angela Fisher and Carol Beckwith) was published in 1990.

Hancock's breakthrough to bestseller status came in 1992 with the publication of The Sign and The Seal, his epic investigation into the mystique and whereabouts today of the lost Ark of the Covenant. 'Hancock has invented a new genre,' commented The Guardian, 'an intellectual whodunit by a do-it-yourself sleuth.' Fingerprints of the Gods, published in 1995 confirmed Hancock's growing reputation. Described as 'one of the intellectual landmarks of the decade' by the Literary Review, this book has now sold more than three million copies and continues to be in demand all around the world. Subsequent works such as Keeper Of Genesis (The Message of the Sphinx in the US) with co-author Robert Bauval, and Heaven's Mirror, with photographer Santha Faiia, have also been Number 1 bestsellers, the latter accompanied by Hancock's three-part television series Quest For the Lost Civilisation.

In 2002 Hancock published Underworld: Flooded Kingdoms of the Ice Age to great critical acclaim, and hosted the accompanying major TV series. This was the culmination of years of research and on-hand dives at ancient underwater ruins. Arguing that many of the clues to the origin of civilization lay underwater, on coastal regions once above water but flooded at the end of the last Ice age, Underworld offered tangible archaeological evidence that myths and legends of ancient floods were not to be dismissed out of hand.

Graham's next venture Talisman: Sacred Cities, Secret Faith, co-authored by Robert Bauval, was published in 2004. This work, a decade in preparation, returns to the themes last dealt with in Keeper Of Genesis, seeking further evidence for the continuation of a secret astronomical cult into modern times. It is a roller-coaster intellectual journey through the back streets and rat runs of history to uncover the traces in architecture and monuments of a secret religion that has shaped the world.

In 2005 Graham published Supernatural: Meetings with The Ancient Teachers of Mankind, an investigation of shamanism and the origins of religion. This controversial book suggests that experiences in altered states of consciousness have played a fundamental role in the evolution of human culture, and that other realities - indeed parallel worlds - surround us all the time but are not normally accessible to our senses.

While researching Supernatural Hancock travelled to the Amazon to drink visionary brew Ayahuasca - the Vine of Souls - used by shamans for more than 4000 years. It was his experiences with the vine lead to his latest work, Entangled. Written with the same page-turning appeal that has made his non-fiction so popular Entangled is his first novel. It tells the story of a supernatural battle of good against evil fought out across the dimension of time on the human plane.

T. Lee Baumann, M.D., Medical Consultant, Geriatrician, Internal Medicine Doctor, Spiritual Advocate, Scholarship Creator, Author and Reseacher
Guest Occupation: Medical Consultant, Geriatrician, Internal Medicine Doctor, Spiritual Advocate, Scholarship Creator, Author, Reseacher
Guest Biography:
Quantum spirituality writer/author
 
DR. BAUMANN is a medical consultant in Birmingham, Alabama. He holds medical certifications in internal medicine, geriatrics, and medical management.

BEGINNING his spiritual journey as a religious skeptic in the 1970's, Dr. Baumann now writes books defending spirituality, based upon the incredible link between worldwide descriptions of God and the proven, scientific nature of physical Light. For instance, the major religious texts of the world all describe God in terms of Light. Near-death experiences describe going to a light that is welcoming, intelligent, and loving. Science and physics experiments suggest that Light is omnipresent (everywhere), omniscient (all-knowing), omnipotent, and conscious - results from light's peculiar quantum nature, including the cessation of time!

COULD IT BE that light and God are one and the same? Lee Baumann makes a case for exactly that. From many sources, Baumann has synthesized a compelling picture of what may be the true nature of our universe at all levels - physical, mental, and spiritual.

100% OF ALL DR. BAUMANN'S BOOK SALES go toward his "GOD AT THE SPEED OF LIGHT" UNIVERSITY SCHOLARSHIPS (25 total and growing throughout Alabama, Mississippi, and Illinois). THE SCHOLARSHIPS exist at the following schools (alphabetical order): AUBURN University's College of Science and Mathematics, MISSISSIPPI STATE University, SOUTHERN ILLINOIS University School of Medicine, UAB (University of Alabama at Birmingham), University of ALABAMA's College of Arts and Sciences, University of MISSISSIPPI, and the University of SOUTHERN MISSISSIPPI.

We need to remember that we are what we eat, assimilate and don't eliminate. Caution should be taken as to what we consume through our food, air, water and especially our minds. I have devoted my entire adult life to sharing the wisdom contained in nature and what befalls us when we ignore Her. Ignorance is definitely not bliss and hence we continue to suffer because of it. Nothing is more important than our health. Nothing. The laws of nature are without negotiation. The key is in understanding and adapting to them. Those who fail to take the time to be healthy will ultimately have to take the time to be sick."

Dr. Stefan Ripich, N.D., CNP., Associate Chief Nurse, Clinical Specialist in Mental Health, Message Therapist and Naturopathic Medicine Doctor
Guest Occupation: Associate Chief Nurse, Clinical Specialist in Mental Health, Message Therapist, Naturopathic Medicine Doctor
Guest Biography:

My training is ongoing. I stay abreast of the newest treatments in Natural and Western Medicine. Unlike many providers who are educated in either Natural or Western Medicine and then pick up the other as they go along, I pride myself in having a very strong preparation in both areas.

I attended Case Western Reserve University for a dual Masters of Science in Nursing. At the time, it was rated among the highest nursing schools in the country. I was awarded a highly competetive scholarship which allowed me to pursue a dual Masters as a Nurse Practitioner and as a Clinical Specialist in Mental Health. Upon graduation I sat for certification exams in both areas and was one of only 40 people in the United States to accomplish both certifications.

I practiced for 10 years at the Palo Alto Veteran's Medical Center where I worked in outpatient settings, and was promoted to Associate Chief Nurse. Meanwhile, I attended coursework in therapeutic massage (and became AMTA certified) and herbal medicine. I established the first holistic clinic called Point of Balance in the V.A. System.

At age 45 I decided to return to medical school and chose Naturopathic Medicine. I attended Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine, a four-year, onsite, fully accredited naturopathic medical school.  I also worked part-time in an urban mental health clinic to pay my living expenses at school. Still, I finished my clinical rotations with a 4.0 average.

I established The One Medicine April 1, 2006. I am fully reimburseable by many insurance plans including Presbyterian, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Medicare, United Health Care, and others.

Hunbatz Men, Grand Elder, Shaman, Daykeeper, Teacher, Author, Speaker, Yoga Educator, Mayan Tradition Expert and Tata
Guest Occupation: Grand Elder, Shaman, Daykeeper, Teacher, Author, Speaker, Yoga Educator, Mayan Tradition Expert, Tata
Guest Biography:

Hunbatz Men - Mayan Elder & Solar Priest
Humbatz Men has recently translated a special Mayan codex dealing with extra terrestrial beings that the ancient Mayans were aware of.

Hunbatz Men - Mayan Elder & Solar Priest lives in Merida, Yucatan, Mexico. He is a Shaman, Daykeeper and teacher of traditional Mayan wisdom passed down to him through generations of Mayan elders. He has committed his life to transmitting these sacred teachings to others who have an interest in the vision and practices of ancient indigenous cultures. He believes that modern peoples can benefit from understanding the world view that the teachings of the Mayas express. This path of sacred sacred wisdom teachings is offered through Maya Mystery Schools, and draws students back into the higher consciousness of the universe, back into Cosmic Consciousness, which they have forgotten. The ultimate purpose of Hunbatz Mens work is to restore our planet to harmony with natural and cosmologic cycles. He believes that the way to help Mother Earth and her children return to a state of harmony is to raise human consciousness once again closer to the Cosmic Consciousness of advanced ancient peoples.

In 2008 Hunbatz Men founded and is Director of the Cosmic Initiatic University of Yokhah Maya in Merida, Yucatan, Mexico. This program offers study in depth of the mystic knowledge and hidden practices of Maya yoga, including philosophy and practices. Education in yokhah (yoga) provides a foundation in cosmic philosophy and practice of techniques based in ancient Maya knowledge and traditions, guiding us to live in harmony with the cycles of our Mother Earth, Father Sun, and the Cosmos.

Grand Elder Grandfather Cirilo Perez Oxlajs Mayan spirit name is Wakatel Utiw, which means Wandering Wolf in his native language. He is regarded as the Voice of the Jungle and the Messenger of the Maya; we also know him as 'Tata' which most affectionately, 'Grandfather' in his native language. Wandering Wolf is responsible for guiding us through a prophesied evolutionary transition called the Shift of the Ages. He relays not only potent messages filled with hope and promise, but also grave warnings about the changes we must make. He tells us we are living in the time when the ancestors, as well as men and women of wisdom, return to usher in a new era of global harmony and a new phase of human evolution.
