Dr. Roger Nelson, Director, Designer, Researcher, Psychologist, Physicist, Philospher, Statitician and Consciousness Expert
Guest Occupation: Director, Designer, Researcher, Psychologist, Physicist, Philospher, Statitician, Consciousness Expert
Guest Biography:

Roger Nelson, PhD, Director and designer of The Global Consciousness Project, also known as the EGG Project, was Coordinator of Research at the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research (PEAR) laboratory, Princeton University, from 1980 to 2002, when he retired. He founded the Global Consciousness Project (GCP) in 1997, and has directed the project since its inception. Roger's broad interests in psychology, physics, philosophy, and the arts have generated opportunities to collaborate with creative interdisciplinary teams at PEAR and elsewhere, developing technologies for studying consciousness and intention. He has a strong interest in the theoretical, philosophical, and practical implications of direct interactions of mind and matter, which help to define the role of consciousness in the world.

In 1993, building on years of laboratory experiments, Roger began using random event generator technology in the field to register correlations of data with special states of group consciousness. This work led to the world-spanning GCP network, designed to look for indications of a global consciousness responding to major world events or great celebrations like New Year’s Eve. After several years of purely scientific focus, with careful research yielding increasingly persuasive evidence, Dr. Nelson has begun to make public presentations about the GCP. The findings imply that we can be creative participants in determining our future, and that we have the capacity and responsibility for conscious evolution.

It is one of humanity's most enduring spiritual traditions: the idea that all life or all consciousness is interconnected. Human groups, whether ethnic, religious, or racial; as various as the Iroquois, the Sufis, and Western European Freemasons, all incorporate it into their belief structures. References to it can be found in ancient documents of the classical world, both East and West. It is a very compelling idea, spanning both millennia and the vast complexity of human cultures. Yet, as compelling as the concept is emotionally, only in recent decades has any objective evidence emerged that such a construct might be valid. Even this work, in fields as various as physics, parapsychology, and biology, has provided only suggestions, largely because the research was not conceived in global terms but, instead, focused on more limited vistas. Indeed, much of the relevant research has regarded only individual performances in experiments on anomalies such as telepathy, mind/matter interactions, and distant healing. Somewhat broader vistas are opened in studies of group resonance and morphogenetic fields.

Until very recently, taking the kind of global real-time measurements necessary to evaluate objectively what Jung called the Collective Unconsciousness, and Teilhard de Chardin described as the Noosphere -- a sheath of intelligence for the Earth -- was not a real possibility. Two events, however, have changed this picture. The first is the development of a reliable measurement technology using Random Event Generators (REGs) linked to computers, together with soft- and hardware necessary to do very large and complex multivariate analyses on desktop machines. The second is the rise of the Internet, itself a kind of global consciousness network, albeit one linked very much to the physical world of electronics. For the first time, the objective measurement infrastructure necessary to undertake an evaluation of consciousness on a global scale is broadly accessible. This proposal describes such an effort, the Global Consciousness Project (GCP).

The Global Consciousness Project (GCP) is an international effort involving researchers from several institutions and countries, designed to explore whether the construct of interconnected consciousness can be scientifically validated through objective measurement. The project builds on excellent experiments conducted over the past 35 years at a number of laboratories, demonstrating that human consciousness interacts with random event generators (REGs), apparently "causing" them to produce non-random patterns. A description of the technical implementation is given under procedures.

Albert Clayton Gaulden, Transpersonal Psychologist, Intuitive, Author, Lecturer, Life Coach, Counselor, Astrologer, Motivator, Speaker and Spiritualist
Guest Occupation: Transpersonal Psychologist, Intuitive, Author, Lecturer, Life Coach, Counselor, Astrologer, Motivator, Speaker, Spiritualist
Guest Biography:

Albert Clayton Gaulden Will Help You Find Your Authentic Self

Transpersonal psychologist, astro-intuitive, author, lecturer, and founding director of the Sedona Intensive, Albert Clayton Gaulden has influenced countless individuals from all walks of life—actors, athletes, financial specialists, teachers, families, psychologists and psychiatrists—from all corners of the earth—helping them to retrieve their authentic selves and to tap into the inner core of their power. Albert’s unique gift in the field of Transpersonal Psychology* is responsible for his fearlessness when confronting the client’s inner conflicts. In his recent book You’re Not Who You Think You Are, Gaulden writes “Men and women are the same; each of us needs to get in touch with our invisible partner, or shadow in order to be emotionally healthy and happy. Each of us is born innately male and female. We need to integrate the divided self—to have a relationship with ourselves before we can love someone else.” He considers his work a search and rescue mission to retrieve the lost soul.

Personal, Spiritual Life Coaching for a Life of Peace and Joy

“Sedona Intensive clients are seeking personal spiritual life coaching, oftentimes for addiction recovery.  This is the foundation of our work. Put a person back together with his or her internal partner** and you empower a life of peace and joy. Clients come to the Sedona Intensive because our therapy is designed to free them from compulsions, addictions and clear up unresolved issues.”

"I counsel my clients using a combination of psychology and astrology (astroanalysis). Natal planets in an individual’s birth chart activated by transits tell me where to focus and what to look for.”

Ultimately, Albert’s clients are able to take responsibility for their own lives and actions.

Born in Monticello, Florida, raised in Birmingham, Alabama, Albert earned his BA at Birmingham-Southern College and attended graduate school at the University of Alabama. His credentials include membership in the American Federation of Astrologers and the National Association for Transpersonal Psychology.

Additionally, Gaulden is a motivational speaker and lectures world-wide on such popular themes as:

  • “Mr. Right is Usually Mr. Wrong—Falling in Love with Make-Believe”

  • “Take Your Power Back”

  • “The Power of a Great Idea”

  • “Why Relationships Don’t Work but How They Can”

  • “Retrieving Your Authentic Self”.

* Transpersonal psychology is a school of psychology that studies the transcendent or spiritual dimensions of humanity. The Journal of Transpersonal Psychology suggests that transpersonal psychology is concerned with the study of humanity’s highest potential, and with the recognition, understanding and realization of intuitive, spiritual, and transcendent states of consciousness. Among the thinkers who are considered to have set the stage for transpersonal studies are William James, Sigmund Freud, Otto Rank, Carl Jung, Abraham Marlow and Roberto Assagioli.

Michael Sembello, Writer, Producer, Performer, Singer, Philanthropist, Linguist, Songwriter and Composer
Guest Occupation: Writer, Producer, Performer, Singer, Philanthropist, Linguist, Songwriter, Composer
Guest Biography:

In an era of cultural and musical diversity, few artists can exhibit the mesmerizing caliber of musical talent as Michael Sembello. As a Grammy Award Winning Writer, Producer and Performer, Michael has achieved countless milestones in his career. He has perfected many genres of music throughout his life, and his ability to sing in over seven languages is recognized as a unique gift that allows him to share the emotion and message of his music globally. Few artists have been able to accomplish this magnitude of success. There are no cultural boundaries for Michael Sembello, because music is his universal language.

Michael Sembello began playing the guitar when he was just nine years old. "My goal was to follow in the footsteps of my jazz mentors." At age 14, he was studying with guitar legends Pat Martino and Chuck Anderson. A week before graduating from High School at the young age of seventeen, Michael auditioned for, and was hired on the spot by Stevie Wonder. Michael was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on April 17, 1954. He left his hometown of Ardmore, Pennsylvania, and went on the road with Stevie for seven years as his lead guitarist and featured vocalist. During this time, Michael worked with Stevie on his most ambitious album "Songs in the Key of Life," co-writing the song "Saturn."

Michael's solo career began in 1983 when he released his first record "Bossa Nova Hotel." Immediately following its release, Michael scored a huge chart-thundering success writing and performing the Grammy Award winning song "Maniac" from the movie Flashdance. The soundtrack has gone platinum six times, with "Maniac" being the third-top grossing song from a movie soundtrack to date.

Through the years, Michael Sembello has gone on to write, play, produce and perform with the music industry's most legendary artists. They include David Sanborn, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, Jeffrey Osborne, Chaka Khan, The Jackson 5, George Benson, Seals & Crofts, New Edition, Julian Lennon, Donna Summer, Pebbles, Minnie Riperton, Stephanie Mills, Barbara Streisand, The Temptations, Philip Bailey, Denise Williams, Melissa Manchester, Angela Bofill, Sergio Mendez, Gerardo, Art Garfunkel, Stanley Clarke, George Duke, Wilkins, and Michael Lington.

Michael is also recognized for his noteworthy writing and production of hit movie soundtracks such as Ron Howard's "Cocoon," and Steven Spielberg's "Gremlins." Other soundtracks include "Summer Lovers," "Salsa," "Campus Man," "Monster Squad," "Rocky IV," "Blank Check," "The Mighty Ducks 3," "Corrina Corrina," "Losing Isaiah," "Independence Day," "Flipper," "The Big Green," "House Arrest," "McHale's Navy," "The Pest," "Suicide Kings," "Senior Prom," "Gladiator," and "The Last Don."
In 1986, Michael recorded the album "Without Walls," and in 1992 he first entered the global market with his East meets West album "Caravan of Dreams." This release captured the hearts of Asia, and Michael made his mark in Japan with his West Coast sound infused with Malaysian and Indonesian mystical grooves.

In 1996, Michael recorded "Backwards in Time," following up with "The Bridge," his most precious project. Michael joined forces with Daniel Jobim (the grandson of Antonio Carlos Jobim), long-time friend Stevie Wonder, Vinnie Colaiuta (Sting's drummer), Paulinho De Costa (world-famous percussionist), Edu Falcao (Brazilian writer and vocalist), as well as American musicians Nathan Watts and Lionel Cole to create the multi-lingual, world beat production.

By 2003, "The Bridge" laid the foundation for Michael's commitment to be a "Global Artist." He, already singing in seven languages, set the framework to travel to different countries to perform and record in their native language with their country's legendary artists. For the past few years, his desire to interact with artists from other countries is a continuation of Michael's "One Planet, One People" concept.

Michael Sembello continues to break down cultural barriers through his pioneering efforts to bring people together through the universal language of music.

Michael has an enduring commitment towards education and philanthropic efforts to assist musicians from around the world in understanding and developing their vocal abilities. He has developed the "Vocal Stylistics"© program to educate aspiring performers, which will also be released in several languages.

From 2005 through today, Michael has been focusing on producing multi-lingual artists from around the globe. Over the past year, he has penned three songs with Michael Lington on his album "Heat," which was released to strong reviews and nominated as Jazztrax Album of the Year for 2008. They include the up-tempo and summery "Ocean Drive" (think South Beach fun in the sun), the hauntingly beautiful ballad "Nostalgia," and breezy, Brazilian-flavored "Chuva" (meaning 'rain' in Portuguese).

Michael Sembello travels to Brazil frequently, and is good friends with Daniel Jobim.  "Chuva"'s composition began on the vintage piano where elder Jobim composed his classic, "The Girl from Ipanema."

Within the next few months, Michael will begin touring live throughout the United States and Japan. In mid-2009, EMI is scheduled to release "Bossa Nova Hotel" in Japan. This remarkable work is a fusion of Brazilian, Bossa Nova and Samba blended with R&B soul. Michael is working together with Bruce Gaitsch and Janey Clewer to create the Bossa Noval Hotel. The three have known each other since 1985 and have worked together with their friend Randy Waldman and Michael's brother Danny Sembello for years. Their first trip to Japan was in 1986 with a Japanese group named Shonen-Tai.

Today as always, you can expect magic from Michael Sembello, as he has introduced a brilliant and inspiring genre of music called "Bossa-Soul." Michael Sembello is considered to be among an elite group of musicians comprising the West Coast Blue-Eyed Soul sound.

Michael Tsarion, Scholar, Mythologist, Teacher, Astrologer, Philosopher, Visionary, Researcher, Speaker, Lecturer, Producer, Presenter, Explorer, Metaphysical Expert, Writer, Author and Historian
Guest Occupation: Scholar, Mythologist, Teacher, Astrologer, Philosopher, Visionary, Researcher, Speaker, Lecturer, Producer, Presenter, Explorer, Metaphysical Expert, Writer, Author, Historian
Guest Biography:

Described as a teacher's teacher, Michael Tsarion is a Divination Scholar and Sidereal Mythologist. An expert on Stellar Astrology, he is the creator of the Archetypal Stellar Taroscopic™ Astrological system of Hermetic Divination, and founder of the online Taroscopic Mystery School. Michael is a descendant of a long line of philosophers, free-thinkers, ascetics and visionaries. His Himalayan born mother was a well-loved, internationally recognized clairvoyant, whose affiliates included Barbara Marx Hubbard, Sir George Trevelyan, Jerry Jampolsky, Elizabeth Kubler-Ross, Shirley MacLane, Edgar Mitchell and a host of other celebrities and academics. She attended J. Krishnamurti’s premier college in India and was later honored as the very first clairvoyant to be a regular on Irish Television. The CEO of Britain’s Independent Broadcasting described her readings as “devastatingly accurate.”

Michael is also the grandson of Tara Singh, the renowned philosopher, author and teacher of the theosophic tome A Course in Miracles. He was the intimate friend of J. Krishnamurti (the World Teacher), Swiss architect Le Corbusier, Keith Critchlow, Alan Chadwick, Eleanor Roosevelt and President Nehru. He was entrusted, by the latter, with India’s 5-year plan of restoration after British withdrawal. Tara Singh was also played a key role in the Rev. Paul Solomon’s Fellowship of Inner Light, one of the first true American mystery schools. He now heads the Foundation for Life Action in Los Angeles.

Michael was born and raised in Ireland and grew up learning metaphysics from Krishnamurti, Rev. Paul Solomon and Peter Balin. Growing up surrounded by leading free-thinkers and mystery school creators he was under pressure to find his own authentic voice rather than becoming dependant on the systems and influences of others. He has honored his pedigree by dedicating his life to the deepest research concerning the seminal metaphysical sciences. And unlike so many, he believes in honoring the work and the names of his mentors. He takes it as a given, the words of Lord Macauly:

A people which takes no pride in the noble achievements of remote ancestors will never achieve anything worthy to be remembered with pride by remote descendants.

Intuitive since birth, he was introduced to the Tarot at age 11 through Rev. Paul Solomon’s premier mystery school - the Fellowship of Inner Light Movement and learning of its profound effect on the human intuition and its value as an empowerment tool, committed his life to bringing Tarot into the lives of others.

He has been affiliated with the Paul Solomon Foundation of Virginia, the Rosicrucian Order, the Naqsbaandi Sufi Order, and has taught indigo children at the New Age Academy in Berkeley, and is frequent guest of Seeing Beyond and KEST, the Bay Area's leading metaphysical radio programs. Television and radio shows he has appeared on include:

Michael is the producer and presenter of the "Origins and Oracles™" series of DVDs, each of which is an in-depth exploration of ancient mysteries and forbidden knowledge.

Michael's book, Atlantis, Alien Visitation and Genetic Manipulation corrects the plethora of disinformation regarding Atlantis and the pre-diluvian epochs and addresses the exact reasons why human beings are finding themselves, existentially and socially, in the present precarious situation.

Along with Jordan Maxwell, Michael has been a contributor of information to researcher and author David Icke.

Michael's articles on metaphysics, etc., are featured in his The High Window column of the Psychic Reader, the official organ of the Berkeley Psychic Institute in California. (These columns are featured on this site in their unedited versions - go to The High Window page).

Sir David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D, Psychiatrist, Physician, Researcher, Spiritual Teacher, Lecturer, Humanitarian, Author, Advisor, Consciousness Expert, Medical Director, Pioneer and Consultant
Guest Occupation: Psychiatrist, Physician, Researcher, Spiritual Teacher, Lecturer, Humanitarian, Author, Advisor, Consciousness Expert, Medical Director, Pioneer, Consultant
Guest Biography:

Sir David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D. is a nationally renowned psychiatrist, physician, researcher, spiritual teacher and lecturer. The uniqueness of his contribution to humanity comes from the advanced state of spiritual awareness known as " Enlightenment," "Self–Realization," and "Unio Mystica."Rarely, if ever, has this spiritual state occurred in the life of an accomplished scientist and physician. Therefore, Dr. Hawkins is uniquely qualified to present a spiritual path that is scientifically compelling to modern society.

The classical hallmarks of this state are pristine awareness of Ultimate Reality, compassion for all beings, tireless dedication to alleviate suffering, radiant joy, and humor. People from all walks of life, nationalities, and spiritual orientations honor Dr. Hawkins as a teacher of advanced awareness, exemplified in the title "Rae Ryeong Seon Kak Tosa" (Foremost Teacher of the Way to Enlightenment) bestowed upon him in Korea.

Founding Director of the Institute for Spiritual Research, Inc. (1983) and Founder of the Path of Devotional Nonduality (2003), Dr. Hawkins has lectured widely at such places as Westminster Abbey; Oxford Forum; Universities of Notre Dame, Michigan, Argentina, Fordham and Harvard; University of California (SF) Medical School; Institute of Noetic Sciences; and Agape Spiritual Center (Los Angeles). In addition, he has been an advisor to Catholic, Protestant, and Buddhist monasteries. He has conferred with foreign governments on international diplomacy and has been instrumental in resolving long–standing conflicts that were major threats to world peace.

He is featured in recent documentary films, magazines, and radio interviews (e.g., Oprah Radio and Institute of Noetic Sciences) for his work in the areas of health, healing, recovery, spirituality in modern life, consciousness research, and meditation.

Dr. Hawkins entered the field of medicine to alleviate human pain and distress, and his work as a physician was pioneering. As Medical Director of the North Nassau Mental Health Center (1956–1980) and Director of Research at Brunswick Hospital (1968–1979) on Long Island, his clinic was the largest practice in the United States, including a suite of twenty–five offices, two thousand outpatients, and several research laboratories. In 1973, he co–authored the ground–breaking work, Orthomolecular Psychiatry with Nobel Laureate chemist Linus Pauling, initiating a new field within psychiatry.

His clinical breakthroughs brought appearances on The Today Show, The Barbara Walters Show and The Mcneil/Leher News Hour. In the 1970s, he co–founded several psychiatric organizations, including the Editorial Board of the Journal of Schizophrenia and the Attitudinal Healing Center in New York.

Many awards followed, such as The Huxley Award for the "Inestimable Contribution to the Alleviation of Human Suffering," Physicians Recognition Award by the American Medical Association, 50–Year Distinguished Life Fellow by the American Psychiatric Association, the Orthomolecular Medicine Hall of Fame, and a nomination for the prestigious Templeton Prize that honors progress in Science and Religion. In 1995, in a ceremony officiated by the H.H. Prince Valdemar of Schaumburg–Lippe at the San Anselmo Theological Seminary, he became a knight of the Sovereign Order of the Hospitaliers of St. John of Jerusalem (founded in 1077) in recognition of his contributions to humanity.

A trademark of Dr. Hawkins's research is his pioneering, internationally–known and applied "Map of Consciousness," presented in the ever–popular book Power vs. Force (1995), translated into over twenty–five languages. The "Map of Consciousness" incorporates findings from quantum physics and nonlinear dynamics, thereby confirming the classical "stages" of spiritual evolution found in the world’s sacred literature as actual "attractor fields."

These spiritual levels had been delineated by saints, sages, and mystics; yet there had never been a scientific framework by which to understand the inner terrain. The "Map of Consciousness" is clinically sophisticated in its depiction of each level’s emotional tone, view of God, and view of life. For example, "Fear" views God as punitive, whereas "Love" views God as loving.

The "Map of Consciousness" illumines heretofore unknown aspects of consciousness. With each progressive rise in the level of consciousness, the "frequency" or "vibration" of energy increases. Thus, higher consciousness radiates a beneficial and healing effect on the world, verifiable in the human muscle response which stays strong in the presence of love and truth. In contrast, non–true or negative energy fields which "calibrate" below the level of integrity induce a weak muscle response. This stunning discovery of the difference between "power" and "force" has influenced numerous fields of human endeavor: business, advertising, education, psychology, medicine, law, and international relations.

Thus we see that the uniqueness of Dr. Hawkin’s work is that an individual of advanced spiritual consciousness also possesses the intellect and clarity to express and communicate the characteristics of these highly­ evolved states of awareness that few have experienced.

Dr. Hawkins’s writings constitute the first modern demarcation of the highest levels of human consciousness (Self­Realization, the Void, Nothingness vs. Allness, Full Enlightenment) and their differential phenomena. In his books, he explains each level of consciousness (energy field) in language that is free of dogma, and is inspirational to all walks of life.

He established the Pathway of Devotional Nonduality – a direct course to Enlightenment via clarification of core essentials that merely await activation by decision, intention, and dedication of the will. His book, "Discovery of the Presence of God: Devotional Nonduality," is basically an instruction manual for the serious spiritual devotee, revealing information that is known only by those who have transcended the ego to reach Divine Realization.

He is the author of the best–selling trilogy, Power vs. Force (published in 25 languages); The Eye of the I; and I: Reality and Subjectivity; and seven additional books, including Truth vs. Falsehood; Transcending the Levels of Consciousness: The Stairway to Enlightenment; Discovery of the Presence of God: Devotional Nonduality; Reality, Spirituality and Modern Man; Healing and Recovery, Along the Path to Enlightenment; and Dissolving the Ego, Realizing the Self. released in 2009. His books are published in numerous languages and sold worldwide.

Dr. Hawkins’s honors are vast. His background is detailed in Who’s Who in America and Who’s Who in the World, and his work has been acclaimed by many world leaders and Nobelists, including Mother Teresa. His life is completely devoted to the upliftment of mankind.

Now in his eighties, Dr. Hawkins maintains a demanding schedule of lectures, radio interviews, and book projects. Similar to other advanced teachers (Mother Teresa, Ramana Maharshi), seekers come from all over the world to be in his presence, stating that the "aura" or "radiance" has a transformative effect via "silent transmission." He insists that what others witness in him is really their own true nature.

The teachings of Devotional Nonduality emphasize the core truths of the world’s great spiritual traditions: kindness and compassion to everything and everyone (including oneself), humility, forgiveness, reverence for all of life, and surrender to God. It is a direct path to Enlightenment in which each internal progression of love and integrity uplifts the whole of existence: "We change the world not by what we say or do but as a consequence of what we have become," states Dr. Hawkins.

RECENT ACCOMPLISHMENTS

Recent accomplishments include: Speaking Engagements at Mishka Productions/Hay House "Celebrate Your Life" Conference in Phoenix, Arizona in November, 2010; Agape Revelations Conference in Los Angeles headed by Reverend Michael Beckwith; the Hay House "I Can Do It" Conference in Las Vegas in 2007 and 2008 as a featured author and presenter; all–day presentations at the Hyatt Regency in Long Beach, California to an audience of 800, and in Cottonwood and Prescott, Arizona to audiences of 900. He conducts regular local seminars and Satsangs (question–and–answer sessions) to sold–out audiences in Arizona and California, and participated in numerous domestic and international film documentaries exploring multifaceted spiritual topics and his current consciousness research findings. The Satsangs have been offered at no charge as a public service to mankind. The seminars reveal data about our technological society and how to live a fulfilled spiritual life within its complexities; titles include: "God vs. Science: Limits of the Mind," "Relativism vs. Reality," "What is Real?", "he Human Dilemma," "Spiritual Survival: Realization of Reality" and "Spirituality: Reason and Faith," to name a few. Seminar attendees include people from numerous countries who travel to the U.S. solely to experience the unique combination of the realization of scientific and spiritual knowingness exemplified by Dr. Hawkins; a contingent of South Koreans, headed by Reverend J. H. Moon of the International Meditation Association, traveled to Sedona in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011, exclusively for a seminar and audience with Dr. Hawkins. He recorded a segment entitled "In The World But Not Of It" for a Nightingale–Conant CD set, focusing on integrating spiritual practice in our modern–day world. His most recent CD Set with Nightingale–Conant, recorded in 2010, is a top–selling interview entitled "Healing," which encompasses spiritual principles and applications related to healing; canceling limiting beliefs; practical tools for relief in major crises, stress and illness. He participated in numerous radio interviews, including Oprah Radio and Noetic Sciences. In 2008 Dr. Hawkins completed his book "Reality, Spirituality and Modern Man," based on the revelations of consciousness research, describing how to discern truth from falsehood and the illusion of appearance from the core of inner reality.

His recent book, published in 2009, is entitled "Healing and Recovery," and is based on a group of lectures conducted by the author at the request of spiritual and self–help groups. The book reveals why the body may not respond to traditional medical approaches, and provides specific instructions and guidelines that can result in healing from disease. Our society lives with constant stress, anxiety, fear, pain, suffering, depression, and worry. Alcoholism, drug addiction, obesity, sexual problems and cancer are constantly in the news. This timely book provides information about how to address life’s challenges without necessarily resorting to drugs, surgery or counseling, and explains the importance of including spiritual practices in one’s healing and recovery.

Two additional books published in 2011 by Hay House, Inc. are: Along the Path to Enlightenment: 365 Daily Reflections from David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D.; and Dissolving the Ego, Realizing the Self: Contemplations from the Teachings of David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D. Along the Path to Enlightenment discusses blocks to spiritual progress, and how we can transcend them. As a mystic, Dr. Hawkins has infused the truths found in the precepts of Western religion with the core of Eastern philosophy, bridging the familiar, physical world with the nonlinear, spiritual domain. The passages in this book, selected from Dr. Hawkins's extensive writings, offer a new contemplation for each day. Any one of these passages, fully understood, can elevate one‘s level of consciousness. Dissolving the Ego, Realizing the Self covers how one traverses the spiritual landscape to move beyond suffering, to experience the peace and love of God, to transcend illusion and realize the state of enlightenment. The reader is reminded of the illusory nature of the ego, along with the direct pathways to transcend its trappings. These pocket editions are reliable companions on the spiritual aspirant's quest toward higher truth.

September, 2011, Dr. Hawkins presented a very special lecture to an audience of over 1700 attendees who traveled from around the world to see him.  He lectured on the topic of “Love” as the substrate of the universe and as a “way of being” in the world. Considered to be the culmination of Dr. Hawkins life work, this event was truly inspiring for those who were present and in his presence.

This year, 2012, Dr. Hawkins directed his attention to answering specific spiritual topics in greater depth than can be explained in a lecture setting.  Video-taped in a small, private setting in Sedona, Arizona, Dr. Hawkins and his wife, Susan, discuss in greater depth and detail profound subjects pertinent to the spiritual aspirant.  “How to Live Your Life Like a Prayer,” “What You Are Changes the World,” “What is Real Success?”and “Permanent Inner Peace” are the enlightening discussion talks released this year.  These discussions both raise and answer the relevant questions all sincere spiritual seekers must face.

New book by Dr. Hawkins - Letting Go: The Pathway of Surrender

This book describes the simple and effective means by which to let go of the obstacles to enlightenment.
Dr. Hawkins primary aim is to seek the most helpful way to relieve human suffering in all its many forms.  The technique of “Letting Go” (Surrender) was found to be a valuable way to free consciousness from suffering and is described in this book.

The author demonstrates that as the individual heals on the inside, healing can occur on the outside, much like the rising of the sea lifts all ships, so the radiance of unconditional love within a human heart lifts all of life.

Dr. Hawkins receives so many requests for projects, radio and film interviews, and speaking engagements, both domestic and international, that he must turn down the vast majority; countries include Canada, Mexico, India, South Korea, Germany, England, Ireland, Japan, Israel and Dubai, as well as from coast to coast in the U.S. Dr. Hawkins is bombarded with daily inquiries from around the world from people who seek answers, and know that the inspiration as well as proven techniques and spiritual practices Dr. Hawkins can provide will set them on the road to authentic and lasting relief.

Fred Master, Humanitarian, Financier, Developer, Spiritual, Communicator, Creative Thinker and Advisor
Guest Occupation: Humanitarian, Financier, Developer, Spiritual, Communicator, Creative Thinker, Advisor
Guest Biography:

Fred Matser is an inspiring humanitarian who, like many others, cares deeply about the future of the planet. He has made it his life’s work to contribute towards creating a more functional society by means of inspiration and empowerment. Towards this end he has been a (co-) initiator, (co-) creator and (co-) financier on a wide range of projects and 19 foundations in both The Netherlands and abroad since 1983. The projects as well as the foundations cover the fields of healthcare, environment, conservation, peace and global transformation.

Born into a Dutch family of modest means and raised within the frugal post-war environment, he later went on to head one of the, at that time, largest independent real estate development companies in the Netherlands and later on to devote large sums of money to charitable projects both at home and abroad.

He volunteered for the League of Red Cross and Red Crescent Organizations (now Federation) in Switzerland where he ran the Child Alive Program. Its goal was to help and educate people on the grassroot level in developing countries on how to reduce child mortality due to the dehydration from diarrhoea.

Matser experienced tragedy at a young age with the infant death of an older brother, later the death of his younger brother and the long-term serious illness of his father, who suffered from diabetes and Parkinson’s disease. These experiences, amongst others, led him to develop a strong sense of compassion and awareness of the suffering of others.

Matser had responsibility and leadership thrust on him from an early age. When only in his mid-twenties he was already responsible for a staff of over 150 and a multi-million pound turnover, having been appointed Chief Executive Officer of his fathers’ real estate development company and supervising subsidiaries. He was also appointed to leadership roles in various other business and sport associations both nationally and internationally and did studies in economics and business management, as well as in parapsychology.

In his 30’s he had some unexpected paranormal and transcendental experiences, triggered by encounters with Uri Geller and others. These included a profound experience of ‘Oneness’ with God, an awareness of the paranormal abilities inherent in everyone and the letting go of fear. These experiences expanded his awareness and produced a dramatic shift in his worldview and beyond. From that point on he has devoted much of his time to increasing his understanding about life and to contributing towards the betterment of society. Matser is a keen communicator and creative thinker. In his real estate development work he and his team have created a number of unique, innovative, large-scale projects that have been widely acclaimed. In his humanitarian work he has initiated or contributed to a number of significant and original humanitarian projects including Peace Child, Child Alive Program for Red Cross,  Fred Foundation, StartFund, Malaria No More and The Twinkling Eyes Club.

On several projects he has had the privilege of working in close association with many inspiring people including several well-known people, such as Mikhail Gorbachev, Ruud Lubbers, Patch Adams, Jerry Jampolsky and Jane Goodall.

Neil Freer, Generalist, Futurist, Lecturer, Author, Poet, Advisor, Philosopher, Teacher, Historian, Futant and Contactee
Guest Occupation: Generalist, Futurist, Lecturer, Author, Poet, Advisor, Philosopher, Teacher, Historian, Futant, Contactee
Guest Biography:

NEIL FREER is a generalist, futant, futurist, lecturer, author, poet, contributor to the Arlington Institute think tank; advisory board member of the exopolitics institute. He is currently working with C.B. Scott Jones on his Plan C for the academic world. Neil and his wife, Ursula, have lived in the Eldorado area since 1994. Neil holds a BA in English and did his graduate work in Philosophy and Psychology at the New School for Social Research. He has taught college courses in Philosophy and History of Religion, gives private and public seminars and lectures and has done over three hundred radio and TV interviews.

Neil is the author of Breaking the Godspell, '87, which explores the archaeological, astronomical and genetic proof for our being a genetically engineered species and presents the ramifications of this new paradigm of human nature that resolves the Creationist-Evolutionary conflict.

In his second book, God-Games: What Do You Do Forever? he explores the ways in which we will live when, individually and collectively, we attain the unassailable integrity afforded by the restoration of our true, part alien genetic history. He outlines the racial maturity of the new planetary civilization and describes the new human. Website: http://www.neilfreer.com

Neil published a third book last year, Sapiens Rising: The View From 2100, through Amazon on Kindle (only, no paper, no trees falling). and it is already in the hands of Michelle and Barack Obama, M Gorbachev, C.B. Scott Jones , John Petersen of the Arlington Institute, the Dalai Lama, Pope Benedict, Klaus Schwab (of Davos), Presidents Clinton, Carter, Charlie Rose, Bill Moyers, among others.

Neil was invited keynote speaker in February 2010 at the International UFO Congress. His presentation was advertised as
Sapiens Rising to Cosmic Citizenship: The Script for a Stellar Species Performance.

As a philosopher, futurist, futant, contactee and generic human, Neil says: We are already into a profound transmutation which will characterize this 21st as our species Century of Transformation. We are being invited into stellar society and have the keys to integrate our past and present as the new humans and meet the conditions for acceptance. Let us reclaim our planetary identity and dignity, our part-alien cosmic credentials, and prepare to matriculate into the heavens, into stellar society as, finally, Sapiens Sapiens, the truly doubly wise. There are dangers but let us face them together. I stand to speak for all of us, a young but wise species, to urge us all to make it so for our children.

Guest Occupation: Lawyer, TV Host, Teacher, Broker, Land Developer
Guest Biography:

Clark Garen, The Legal Eagle Behind "NITEBITES TV"

As a practicing attorney as well as a talk show host, Clark Garen brings unique perspectives to the events of the day, weaving in wit, legal expertise, and opinions that resist the easy Right or Left categories and strive for common sense. It's not Brainwash Television or Ambush Television--its television that lulls the viewer into thinking they are being entertained while they are really being stimulated to think!"

With 38 years of legal experience, a two year stint as an elementary school teacher, five years as a real estate developer, 12 years as a 900 telephone number information provider, 38 years in the collection agency business, and two and a half years hosting "Think Radio with Clark Garen", Clark can address a wide range of topics, including:

Current Events and Politics
Legal Proceedings in the News
Drug Laws Civil Rights Violations
Bankruptcy
Business and Anti-Trust Law
Tort Reform
Product Liability
 
Constitution and Government
Divorce and Child Custody
Collection Agencies Consumer Debt
Landlord and Tenant Problems
Tax Law
Estate Planning
Unfair Business Practices

"Nitebites with Clark Garen" addresses a wide range of topics from the timely to the timeless. As Clark explains, "My interesting guests are individuals who risked their lives and their careers for what they believed in. People like Jocelyn Elders, who journeyed from poverty to become a prominent physician, but who refused to accept a the political position of Surgeon General until she was given a leave of absence from her teaching position so that she would be able to tell the truth without having to worry about paying the price of unemployment; John Lewis, who was one of the leaders who started the Civil Rights movement in the early 1960's by implementing Ghandi's form of non-violent protest; Author Clive Cussler, who had a difficult time in school because he was always looking out the window and dreaming of adventure, and later quit his job as a successful advertising executive to create superhero Dirk Pitt and "Raise the Titanic" while Jim Cameron was still preoccupied with even Alien space creatures; and Michelle Bell, an economically challenged black high school student in Fresno, California who was taught to sing by a dedicated public school teacher who gave him free voice lessons every day before school, and who was later able to repay this teacher by flying him to New York, New York to see him open on Broadway playing the role of "Joe" in Harold Price's revival of "Showboat".

It's no surprise that Clark finds these people interesting--in his legal practice, he relishes cases that emphasize the rights of the individual. "It might be unfashionable now", Clark explains, "but I've always admired Supreme Court Chief Justice Earl Warren, who dedicated his life to government service instead of the pursuit of money and power, and who understood that the primary purpose of the Courts was to protect every individual from oppression from any source, and especially from the Government." As Clark notes, this philosophy sometimes puts him at odds with the trends of the day. "In fact, I've taken that thinking to the point where in divorce cases, I enjoy helping couples to either stay together or separate with dignity, instead of acting like a parasite by feeding my anger to generate more work and income for my law firm."
