Suzanne Taylor, Documentary Producer, Writer, Networker, Transformational Strategist, Painter, Actress
Guest Occupation: Documentary Producer, Writer, Networker, Transformational Strategist, Painter, Actress
Guest Biography:

Suzanne Taylor, founder of Mighty Companions, is a producer, writer, and networker. A "transformational strategist," she produces projects and events so that self-aware and thinking individuals have opportunities to meet, to engage, and to further the consciousness shift now sweeping through humanity.

"For years, I've been cross connecting people on the cutting edge of thought. Mostly we've met in huddles at my home in Los Angeles. On this Website, you'll find some of those archives and an active playing field.

"In the first half of my life I did well at traditional things. I was a star at New York University (Phi Beta Kappa, summa cum laude), a cooking fool (The Anybody Can Make It, Everybody Will Love It Cookbook), a Mom of three (now grown-up) girls, a post-impressionist painter (I had a one-woman show), and a working actress (lots of network television commercials). After being Mrs. Him for 14 years, in 1970 I got unmarried and started my second life, looking for me. Going down mind-expanding avenues, I landed in whatever It is that gave rise to everything. Now what I do is serve. I like to do projects and events where people chew on how it will be when we human beings learn to take care of each other.

"In 1989, when some voice that called itself the Intelligence was coming through, I put out a little pamphlet of what it said. I called it Inside the Intelligence: Mapping the Path to Oneness. I let it have its say, sans much steering from me. It has been a guide for me ever since, wising me up about helping this to become a healing rather than a hurting world. When I put up this Website, I tuned into the Intelligence again. This is what it said:

- There is a logic to human existence. We are writing a manual of what that logic is. This is an intelligence speaking. It is the wisdom of the circle.

- Dialogue is the necessary activity now to save the earth. Everyone sees glimmers of a peril looming; all must attend. Reordering must come. It will not result from legislation or from mediating between warring factions. Any imposition will just create more war. No, this needs to BE an otherness that births inside the womb of now.

- This is the voice of humanity's soul. Snap to attention. Come off the meditation cushion. The family needs to forge. The mother is overblown with pregnancy. A creature must emerge.

We have stripped ourselves, prayed ourselves and meditated ourselves into readiness for evolving together. Who knows where we can go? Into other dimensions or other solar systems or able to read each other's minds? These glimmers in our eyes perhaps can happen sometime -- but first oneness has to be our way.

Recognizing Spirit as what we are expressing and not what we are looking for is the alchemy that transforms. We are of God, here to do the things of God; we come together to outpicture divine energy into the plane of matter. I am devoted to helping that occur.

Laura Alden Kamm, Spiritualist, NDEr, Author, Medical Intuitive, Researcher, Radio Personality, Healer, Writer, Lecturer and Teacher
Guest Occupation: Spiritualist, NDEr, Author, Medical Intuitive, Researcher, Radio Personality, Healer, Writer, Lecturer, Teacher
Guest Biography:

Laura grew up in rural Ohio. A world traveler at a young age, she tromped through 16 countries by the time she was 8. After high school, Laura headed to the Ohio State University. Shortly thereafter, she ended up working at the headquarters for the Commander-in-Chief for the North Atlantic Fleet. She married, had two children, and continued to pursue a scholarly vision of creating architecture with an anthropological influence which would infuse the work of her heroes—Margaret Mead, Joseph Campbell, and Frank Lloyd Wright.

While attending Indiana State University in 1982, Laura’s life was transformed when she awoke one morning with a searing pain in her head. Within 11 days she was totally blind. Several hours later, she died in an ambulance.

Laura crossed over to the Other Side and had an extraordinary near-death experience. Her life and mission were forever changed. She recovered from this traumatic illness, partially blind and with a rare and precise gift of inner sight. She described to her neurosurgeon how she physically saw particles and ribbons of colors within and around everything, to which he replied, “Laura, it will be 100 years before Western science finds out what really happened to you.”

Early on, a schism formed between her experiences and skills, and the mainstream world. Laura felt far-flung from what life was supposed to be. But what was life supposed to be? She saw a black hole between science, religion, philosophy, and contemporary spirituality and mysticism. There is an unwillingness to speak of one’s direct experiences with God that fall outside the lines of acceptable dogma. She began to envision intelligent, compassionate conversations about living with hope and fulfillment in our flattening world while being consciously engaged in spirituality and its inherently beautiful, yet, challenging experiences.

Her book, Intuitive Wellness, and audio programs, Unlocking Your Intuitive Power: How to Read the Energy of Anything and Color Intuition, begin to address the questions she asked as a child—who or what is God?  For almost thirty years she has engaged in work that keeps her in direct contact with spirituality, never losing her thirst for discovering cross-cultural applications of religion and mysticism, and exploring how science has been empowered to make or break a spiritual point but cannot diminishing one’s personal experience.

As a structural and medical intuitive, she has worked with countless individuals around the world, from all strata of society. Doctors have called Laura a “walking MRI” for her laser-like accuracy in intuitive assessments. She is a popular radio guest and the host of, Laura Kamm Live; words along the way. She has served on research panels, including the National Institute of Health-funded studies on remote healing with HIV/AIDs patients. Laura has also worked with the complementary medicine unit at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital in New York City. Her work has been highlighted in Body + Soul and Better Health and Living magazines, and she is the “Intuitive Development Expert” for Sounds True web channel.

When Laura is not writing, lecturing, teaching, on the radio, or working with private clients, she relishes time spent with her two adult children. She is a life-long student of anthropology/sociology, a gardener, and a practitioner of meditation, yoga, and various eastern arts, including calligraphy.

Chris was an Editor of The Chelsea Journal from 1992 to 1994, and helped organize a campaign to fight lead poisoning among local children during this time, among other grass-roots initiatives. From 1994 to 1997, he was publisher of The West Side Story, an all-volunteer humanist neighborhood newspaper for the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood in New York City. He also founded a humanist community center for the neighborhood, which hosted projects in the arts, community gatherings and other initiatives. During this time, he launched a campaign to develop a new neighborhood middle school, and supported the campaigns of two Humanist candidates for the school board.

Over the course of his humanist work, Chris has helped organize local, city-wide, and regional humanist forums, including the North American New Humanist Forum in November, 2007 (http://www.newhumanistforum.org/). He participated actively in projects aiming to humanize health care and education. He has also organized demonstrations calling for worldwide nuclear disarmament, and helped lead human support campaigns for humanist projects in Bangladesh and Mozambique.

Chris has represented U.S. New Humanists at humanist conferences and gatherings in Spain, Italy, Mexico, Argentina, Bolivia, Chile and Brazil.

A. True Ott, PhD, Philisopher, Researcher, Mineral Supplement Advocate and Radio Show Host
Guest Occupation: Philisopher, Researcher, Mineral Supplement Advocate, Radio Show Host
Guest Biography:

A. True Ott received his Bachelors of Arts degree from Southern Utah University in Cedar City, Utah in 1982, and went on to receive his Doctor of Philosophy in the field of Nutrition through the American College in Washington DC in 1994.  Dr. Ott’s dissertation and research followed the groundbreaking work of Linus Pauling, and asserted via independent research that each mineral on the periodic table of the elements, in its pure hexagonal crystalline form, pulses a specific hertz resonant frequency based on its atomic weight and unique electron configuration.  Dr. Ott then measured and graphed the individual resonant frequencies inherent in vitamin and enzyme structures, and independently verified that 23 minerals are the base raw materiel of nutrition and are vitally important in keeping the human cells in a state of balance or homeostatic health.  Dr. Ott has been counseling and lecturing on this most basic form of prime nutrition for over 15 years, and founded Mother Earth Minerals, Inc. in 1997.

Dr. Ott’s independent research also verified the importance of free electrons in nutritional, water-soluble mineral supplements, as well as ultra-pure drinking water and oxygen molecules.  He developed a patent-pending drinking water product that attaches free electrons to the Hydrogen and Oxygen molecules in ultra-pure, medicinal grade water – making it negatively charged (extra ‘free electrons’) and then introduced it to individuals suffering from chronic conditions such as diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, etc.  Amazingly, the free electrons in Dr. Ott’s water product began to reduce the symptoms associated with chronic disease in a very powerful way.  As Dr. Ott declared in a recent symposium: “Society has unfortunately taken water for granted.  When I share my research on water and minerals with others in the allopathic medical community, the typical response is raised eyebrows and mocking derision.  Too often health care professionals, however, forget that the human body is composed of 70% water and 30% minerals – therefore it is simply common sense that pure water combined with pure minerals comprise Mother Earth’s medicine chest for all mammalian life forms! It is not rocket science, only basic nutritional truth!”

The author and publisher of dozens of articles and three books on nutrition, Dr. Ott is continually searching for natural solutions and answers to the nation’s chronic health problems, and believes that education is the first step.  His latest book, Secret Assassins in Food blows the whistle on common food additives and is a “must-read” in order to understand some of the more toxic food additives and programs!

From 1996-2001, Dr. Ott worked with Mr. Warren Anderson to produce the radio program “The Story Behind the Story” at KSUB Radio in Cedar City, Utah and was awarded the prestigious Peabody Award for radio documentary.

Christian de Quincey, Ph.D., Consciousness Coach, Teacher, Author, Writer, International Speaker, Journalist, Noetic Science Explorer and Philosopher
Guest Occupation: Consciousness Coach, Teacher, Author, Writer, International Speaker, Journalist, Noetic Science Explorer, Philosopher
Guest Biography:

Let me introduce myself: I am Christian de Quincey, and I have two major passions in life, exploring consciousness and writing (including the fine art of editing).

I am a consciousness coach, teacher, author, writing coach, and international speaker. My focus is consciousness, the essence of who we are and what we can become. I have been studying, practicing, and teaching the noetic arts and sciences for the past 20 years.

This website is a way for me to guide and support others to transform their own lives by developing their natural noetic gifts. "Noetic" refers to intuitive ways of knowing, how we feel and think, intuit, and imagine. It's all about being in relationship: with yourself, with others, and with the natural world. "Noetics" is also about naturally expanding consciousness of our place in the larger scheme of things, and how we can realize our full potential as caring and compassionate human beings.

If you ever think about any of these things, you might be interested to learn how and why I came to write a novel explaining my understanding of consciousness. It is called Deep Spirit: Cracking the Noetic Code. The whole idea came in a flash of insight, in two short weeks 400 pages came flowing out (the published version is shorter!). Learn more about the ideas I express in the book.

For 12 years, I was editor of the IONS Review and Shift, the magazine published by the Institute of Noetic Sciences in California. During that time, I completed my doctoral studies in philosophy and religion at the California Institute of Integral Studies, and co-authored The Scientific Exploration of Consciousness with the late Willis Harman.

Since then, I have spent most of my time putting into practice for myself what I have learned about how the noetic arts and sciences can help people access higher levels of awareness and understanding. I offer online and in-person tutorials , individually as well as in workshops.

Trudeau’s advocacy began as a young man when he was diagnosed with a deformed heart.

A relentless researcher, Trudeau found an industry expert in Mexico City, where he underwent radical live cell therapy. Cured, he returned to the Mayo Clinic for an ultrasound where the incredulous physicians saw that the malady was cured. Rather than embracing the results, the Clinic “didn’t want to hear about it”. Asking the question, “what else is the medical community hiding from me?”, Trudeau began his relentless journey as an advocate for alternative cures.

His groundbreaking book, self published in 2005, Natural Cures “They” Don’t Want You to Know About was number one on the New York Times best sellers list for 26 weeks and is one of the best selling health books of all time. Additional titles include More Natural Cures Revealed: The Previously Censored Brand Name Products That Cure Disease and The Weight Loss Cure. Discovering unconventional business practices that really work, he has written Mega Memory: How to Release Your Photographic Memory as well as Debt Cure, an indictment of the world of finance. To date, Trudeau has sold over 30 million copies globally, and loyal fans flock to his seminars, which are held worldwide.

The founder of over 60 companies all around the world, Trudeau’s global business empire has included TV networks, publishing, manufacturing, telecommunications, research organizations, media production and distribution, advertising and consulting.

James I. Nienhuis, Geologist, Genesis Historian, Author and Researcher
Guest Occupation: Geologist, Genesis Historian, Author, Researcher
Guest Biography:

BIO FROM: (top paragraph only) http://www.iceagecivilizations.com/author.html

James I. Nienhuis graduated from Dartmouth College in 1976 with a degree in geology, and has studied ancient history pertaining to the Genesis account since 1985. His first book Old Earth was published in 2003, and his second book, Ice Age Civilizations, has already received rave reviews, and is destined to change the way we look at ancient history, because it explains how the ancients were able to measure and thereby map the earth with a simple mechanical device, during the Ice Age, which ended much later than is commonly advertised, as the evidence plainly reveals.

Nienhuis is an expert in study of past civilizations, showing they were far more advanced than current experts are willing to acknowledge, and perhaps more advanced than contemporary civilization, as the ancient ruins show. The amazing advanced nature of these civilizations leads many to theorize that they are the product of either ultra advanced humans in the past, and/or ultra advanced extraterrestrials in the past who showed humans how to build, farm, and live (this is the ‘ancient astronaut theory’). He is also an expert on the theory that the earth (and perhaps the universe) is not old, and is very young. This theory is difficult for many to digest since they are inundated with theories that the earth and universe is very old through the information in schools and on TV, without ever being shown the information that contradicts old earth and universe theories, and without ever being shown the strengths of the young earth and universe theories.

Dr. Michael Beckwith’s life is a living testament to building spiritual community. In the 1970’s he began an inward journey into the teachings of East and West, and today teaches universal truth principles found in the New Thought-Ancient Wisdom tradition of spirituality. Gifted with a vision of a trans-denominational spiritual community, in 1986 he founded the Agape International Spiritual Center upon his faith in that original vision.

In a personal letter to him Coretta Scott King wrote, "I greatly admire what you are doing to bring about the Beloved Community, which is certainly what my dear husband worked for and ultimately gave his life."

Recently described in “What Is Enlightenment?” magazine as a "non-aligned trans-religious progressive," Dr. Beckwith shares his powerful conviction of creating the Beloved Community through his participation on international panels with other peacemakers and spiritual leaders including Dr. T. Ariyarante of Sri Lanka, and Arun Gandhi, grandson of Mohandas K. Gandhi. He is co-founder of the Association for Global Thought, an organization dedicated to planetary healing and transformation.

Dr. Beckwith is the originator of the Life Visioning Process, which he teaches throughout the country along with meditation, scientific prayer, and the spiritual benefits of selfless service. He facilitates retreats, workshops and seminars. His books include: “Inspirations of the Heart”, “Forty Day Mind Fast Soul Feast”, and “A Manifesto of Peace”.

Dr. Beckwith’s achievement as a humanitarian and emissary of peace have been widely acclaimed. In 2003, his activities were enumerated when he was written into the Congressional Record of the 107th congress. He is the recipient of numerous humanitarian awards, some of which include: The 2004 Africa Peace Award, Thomas Kilgore Prophetic Witness Award, Howard Thurman Stained Glass Window Award by Morehouse College, a commissioned oil portrait for Morehouse’s prestigious Hall of preachers, and the Humanitarian Award of the National Conference for Compassion and Justice.

David Weddle, Television Producer and Writer
Guest Occupation: Television Producer, Writer
Guest Biography:

David Weddle - Writer and Executive Producer for such esteemed shows as Battlestar Galactica, Star Wars and CSI

BIO FROM: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Weddle

David Weddle is an American television producer and writer, best known for episodes of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1996–1999), The Twilight Zone (2002–2003), Battlestar Galactica (2004–2009), and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (2009-2011) with writing partner Bradley Thompson. They also wrote for the short-lived series Ghost Stories (1997) and The Fearing Mind (2000). Weddle and Thompson are currently writing and producing for the TNT series Falling Skies.


Weddle's father fought in World War II and saw action during the Guadalcanal campaign and the Battle of Peleliu.

Weddle graduated from the USC School of Cinema, as did writing partner Bradley Thompson, whom he first met in an acting class.

A fan of Sam Peckinpah, Weddle met the director on several occasions. Weddle and his parents knew Fern Lea Peter, Peckinpah's sister, and her family. He was able to watch Peckinpah direct what would be his last film, The Osterman Weekend.

After Peckinpah's death in 1984, Weddle used Peckinpah's production files and correspondence that had been given to the library of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to write a biography of the director. This biography, If They Move . . . Kill 'Em!: The Life and Times of Sam Peckinpah was released in 1994.

It was the biography that brought Weddle to Deep Space Nine and later to Battlestar Galactica. Ira Steven Behr, a fan of Peckinpah, invited Weddle to Paramount Pictures. This enabled Weddle and Thompson to pitch stories to the show. The two joined the writing staff for DS9's final seasons. They also met and worked with producer Ronald D. Moore on the show.

Weddle and Thompson wrote twelve episodes of Deep Space Nine. Weddle can be seen in the background of the scene set at Vic Fontaine's Lounge in the final episode, "What You Leave Behind". He later wrote a DS9 novel set after the series with Jeffrey Lang. Entitled "Abyss", it focused on Section 31, the Federation's secretive intelligence service.

Weddle considers "Inquisition" to be the best Star Trek episode he and Bradley Thompson wrote, for showing "that the Federation, as perfect as it seemed, had to resort to unsavory tactics and work black bag operations to keep their world safe and pristine".

Weddle and Thompson were invited by Ron Moore to work on the reimagined Battlestar Galactica. They served as story editors on the first season of the show and became co-producers in the second season. Their responsibilities as producers increased during the third season, and they achieved supervising producer status for the fourth season.

In 2008, Weddle and Thompson joined the staff of CSI: Las Vegas mid-way through Season 9 as writers and supervising producers.[1] As of Season 10, they became co-executive producers. An episode they wrote for the 11th season, "Fracked," won the Environmental Media Association's 21st Annual Environmental Media Award for Television Episodic Drama.[2]

Weddle has dined and chatted at length with Jerry Lewis on his private yacht in Southern California. He appreciates Jerry Lewis as an "auteur" and wrote an article about the director and actor that appeared in the Los Angeles Times Sunday magazine section suggesting that Lewis be awarded an honorary Academy Award. Lewis won this award on February 22, 2009, though for his humanitarian achievements rather than his work in the cinema.

In 2011, Weddle and Thompson joined the second season of the Steven Spielberg alien invasion drama Falling Skies as writers and producers.
