CONTACT NETWORK HISTORY PROJECT

A Close Encounter of the Third Kind with Love.

Joseph Burkes MD 2015

It has been said that consciousness is the “golden thread” that ties us to UFO intelligence. After all if the ET hypothesis is correct and UFOs are an extraterrestrial manifestation, then we are going to be very different from them. We don’t share a common history, language or biological evolution, but what both humans and ETs have in common is that we are awake and are aware of that wakefulness.

Perhaps we can share states of being that come from that clear quiet place that we call consciousness itself. For those of us who have met the visitors face to face, there exists the possibility of sharing a sense of peace or joy. Although it may sound corny, as this narrative suggests we may also be able to communicate with, and share love.

“COMING OUT” OF THE UFO CLOSET

My initial enthusiastic support for CSETI ‘s contact efforts led me to a rather daring action. Some would call it foolish. I decided to set up a CSETI information booth at the American Public Health Association’s annual meeting held in Washington DC in November of 1992. I was accompanied by my medical group partner “Dr. Daniel.” He was in our Los Angeles CSETI CE-5 Initiative Working Group.

The APHA’s meeting draws about 10,000 health professionals whose political views are more to the left than mainstream medicine’s views. The APHA has historically championed the health rights of women, ethic minorities and workers. During the first few years of my medical career I had actively participated in the Occupational Health and Safety section of the APHA. In 1979 I was co-founder of the Los Angeles Committee on Occupational Safety and Health, a coalition of health care and legal professionals that endeavored through education and advocacy to make the workplace safer.

WORKING THE CROWD

At a beautiful new convention center in the nation’s capital, under a royal blue banner embroidered with the slogan, “ One Universe, One People!” Daniel and I “worked” the conference participants. A small TV monitor played dramatic footage of UFOs, while I called out to passersby, “Would you like to see a UFO video?” Apparently quite a few did, over 250 nurses, doctors and administrators watched the film clips and chatted with us during the 3-day conference. About forty signed up for more information and the bravest shared their personal stories of sightings and other contact experiences.

A CLOSE ENCOUNTER OF THE THIRD KIND WITH LOVE

A Ph.D. professor of nursing gave the most impressive report to me. From her convention badge I identified her as a faculty member from a major university. She watched the videos for a few minutes and then allowed me to interview her about her personal contact experience.

Some 7 years before she reportedly had a Close Encounter of the Third Kind. After nightfall while camping with her fiancée, her tent was filled with a very bright light. All around the campsite she could hear footsteps. Apparently from prior encounters she immediately realized that she was having a contact experience. The professor reported not being able to move but was fully awake. She could not stir her friend that was sound asleep. One humanoid stuck his head into the tent. By her description the being was the typical so called “Gray,” big head with wrap around eyes. My nursing colleague told me that she was happily excited and frightened at the same time.

The being quickly retreated but she could see his shadow and those of several others on the walls of her tent that was illuminated by the campfire light. She told me that she sent out the thought, “ I love you.” In a flash she felt a forceful burst of electric type energy. The sensation surged through her body from the top of her head down to the tip of her toes. The beings left her campsite and the encounter was over.

There are on the exhibit floor, under the bright lights with hundreds of booths and thousands of participants around us, she had described the experience simply, matter of fact, with just a touch of amazement. I was a perfect stranger to her and yet she was willing to share her recollections of an intimate contact with what she believed were non-human beings. I described to her the ambitious goals of CSETI’s CE-5 Initiative. She listened politely but chose not to sign up for more information. After all she was a professor at a major university and the notoriety of being a contact experiencer might cause her considerable harm. She wished me well in my crusade and walked away, disappearing into the crowd.

About the author: Joseph Burkes MD volunteered as a Working Group Coordinator for the CE-5 Initiative from 1992 to 1998. He has continued to study the flying saucer phenomenon working with MUFON and the Peruvian contact network now called Rahma. He is co-author of the book “Paths to Contact” edited by Jeff Becker. Dr Burkes retired from the Southern California Permanente Medical Group after thirty years service in 2008. He is a board certified internal medicine physician and is licensed to practice in California.

Compatible History

and response from the curator….

Dr. Burkes knows far too well that the consciousness we call ET is so connected to what we also call ‘unconditional love’ that it seems surreptitious that others would engage in fear-based conspiracy theories, imho. The frequency response of such deep levels of love can initially feel so intense that they indeed are a bit frightening; the unfamiliar sense of being totally and unconditionally ‘loved’ by high-frequency beings.

We ‘see’ them in many ways, from humanoid-looking (most appeasing) to reptilian (most challenging) and even non-bipedal creatures as well. It’s been said that we/they present themselves according to the viewer’s capacity or willingness to see. A lot of the current focus, though, is still on the lower vibratory realms, the research on encounters, sightings and such. Bridging the professional realms, like Joe did with the APHA, is critical and I believe mandatory today.

International Association for Near Death Studies

I had the opportunity to do the same a few years ago, with the International Association for Near-Death Studies. I applied for a presentation spot at their 2010 annual conference in Denver and got the nod, unexpectedly. After some scheduling rearrangements (initially having an hour, then a half-hour, then being put on a panel with two others and given 20 minutes as I stepped on stage) I felt a little uncomfortable with such demands that I felt were a bit unprofessional. Still, I was there and on stage.

I had a feeling things were going to go awry, so I didn’t put my powerpoint together until during the speaker just before us. It turned out to be perfectly timed… I came in just over the 20 minutes they allotted. During my presentation to the clinicians and medical professionals I introduced the notion of how the OBE’s, NDEs and STEs were all related and easily lended themselves to accessing what we call ETs and more, including cosmic consciousness.

I noticed some shades drawn with some of the audience but one individual in particular who was a long standing expert in the field, P.M. Atwater, was smiling from ear to ear and nodding continuously as I broached the delicate bridge. I knew I was going to hedge the edge of acceptability with this particular crowd, yet afterward there were several who congratulated me on bridging those worlds. No one to date had attempted to do so at the IANDS annual events.

Btw, I wasn’t invited back, either. 🙁 Still, the information was shared. Having multiple close encounters throughout my life has been both a blessing and a curse. I’m blessed with a greater understanding of the ‘non-humans;’ their perspective on universal law and order. I’m cursed with the misunderstanding and projections of others who are unable to hear from within.

Keep up the great work, Joe!

Here’s the video if anyone is interested…. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DlvkmP3eZkE

Dr. Burkes and I had a great conversation a couple of months ago on Inception Radio, too… https://youtu.be/ozQ-HH4jXGU

The Good Old Days

A View from the Bleachers

Not that it really matters, but I’ve been watching the field of Ufology develop since my introduction as Bruce to Jim Delittoso in the late 80s. Zen hadn’t happened yet; still a few years away. Until then, I’d been relatively free of public engagement, let alone discussion of my experiences. I felt a bit pensive and yet willing to take some chances.

I was pulled in to the ‘scene’ as my curiosity in Jim’s work and all the folks that showed up at Village Labs we piqued, to say the least. Until then, I was a rather naive and trusting sort from rural Indiana. Granted I had started early with regular visits to the orange cigar-shaped cloud, so the scene was not unfamiliar with it’s stories and tales. Michael Tanner and Jim became regular visits and delivering a beautiful and brilliant package to Jim sure helped. When I introduced Susan to Jim, Ufaux was soon launched with Jerry Wills on bass, Susan on drums and Jim on keyboards.

Somewhat surreptitiously and yet willingly I dove into the field, attended Tim Beckley’s Aliencoming-together and New Age Agenda expos in Phoenix while working with the New Age Alliance to put on one of the first large New Age events at the Biltmore Resort. Jerry Wills introduced us as well. I traveled to Sedona a few times, too, where I met Dr. Frank Stranges and Wes Bateman at a gathering and spent many hours in conversations with each.

At the time I was alone and fresh out of a divorce, heart-broken and searching for self. Al Bielek, unknown to me at the time, called and invited me out to lunch one day. It made for a skeptical optimist, determined to compare experiences with lofty tales of extraterrestrial encounters. Having some good ears to listen and reflect made a big difference to this seeker of the unusual and weird running alongside a very normal if not practical life of recovery from the loss of my family.

Those events and a television show gave me an opportunity afforded few, and the cursory wounds healed quickly. I was aware of the invisible hand and a few handlers, too. A few years later I road in one of Roy Haddix’s limos with Alicia Greig to Tucson and the first International UFO Congress, arranged by Jim.  I’d met Wendelle Stephens at the Lab and Bob Dean for the first time at the event with Ted Loman, Dave Thompson and Ken Lilgegren as part of the production crew. Miriam Delicado and Travis Walton were there as well.

Dave, Jim, Miriam, Travis and I had a short and sweet reunion at the last IUFOC on the patio just before the awards dinner. Relationships forged early in the coming of age of Ufology weather many storms; trials and tribulations that seem to be the norm among the cohorts and converts. The sad thing is that competition has replaced cooperation and collaboration as folks turned the environment into profit centers that bring out undesirable influencers, imho.

Ann Fogg, Nester Night Owl

Since those early times I’ve had the honor of meeting some very respectable people in the field. I was even fortunate enough to be the logistical producer for the Prophets Conference in 1997. The Phoenix Lights had happened earlier, and the Labs were interview central. Background conversations were plentiful as I had a great crew and could easily move about the cabin once the event began. Ann Fogg and Pieter Oosthuizen were great problems solvers and problems were few.

The only challenge was when we weren’t fast enough bicycling the A/V equipment and David Icke had to wait. I got an earful for that I didn’t expect, left a bad taste. Dr. Edgar Mitchell and I had several intimate conversations that few have I’m sure. Jose and Lloydine Arguelles were delightful, having some quality time with them while officing out of Village Labs was amazing for sure. I’d been able to ask direct questions, share experiences and corroborate understanding I sorely needed. That year was phenomena-ful for me.

Things got more intense as the years went on yet I always seemed to be able to manage bridging personal and professional worlds, with a little flair at times. I had a lot of fun playing in the background and spent a considerable amount of time behind the curtain, so to speak. I watched as people changed and morphed, not physically per se, but ethically and morally and some things just didn’t make sense.

As it got more in vogue to share stories, I’ve seen more posers come out of the woodwork than I care to admit. I’ve always questioned my own experience. Heck, I’m even okay with others questioning it, too. Over the last decade I’ve observed some good people with similar experience get set aside while more conspiracy theories crop up to keep the cauldron of fear nice and warm. It seems the effort to evolve is rife with dissenters and doom spreaders.

I’m reminded of the crop circle from August of 2002 that delivered a very interesting message, et-disc-binarywarning of the deceit and deception to come. As some valiant humans seek to evolve toward a greater consciousness, assisted by some very interested off-planet parties, the squeaking wheels still get the grease. It seems the scene has turned a profit lately and we certainly wouldn’t want to screw that up.

There are some voices of reason that appear here and there, looking for deeper truths and making sense common. Their words resound in the hearts and minds of those who have similar designs with their inquiry – to understand the nature and truth of the interaction of non-human intelligence across the apparent dimensional doorways accessible only to those who remain faithful and fearless. That place within is available for anyone to choose. We’re still invited to go there.

Thanks for reading. Perhaps the longer version may interest you… Zendor the Contrarian – A Seminal View of Consciousness, Cosmology and the Congruence of Science and Spirituality.

Aliens Among Us – Human Hybrids

Aliens Among Us – Human Hybrids

This so reminds me of Ruth Montgomery’s book, and I hope if you haven’t read it that you do so. Alrightythen, the information this video presents I find to be personally conflicting with a vast experiential reality I know to be true for me. It includes several near-death experiences, one of which I encountered hundreds of points of lights that I was informed I was to work with in order to facilitate a new world order (harmony among people and planet) and that it would happen in my lifetime. Incredulous as that may sound, I’ve lived my life accordingly and have developed an understanding and trust with every race I’ve encountered – NONE of them have any intention of invading or taking over Earth… PERIOD. It just doesn’t work that way.

My life experiences also include life-long contact and interaction beyond most of the things you read about and/or hear about all over the Net. I’m okay with being an outcast and social misfit. As a matter of fact, that was  the name of the band I played in for years – Outcasts and Social Misfits. I began contact on board an orange cigar-shaped ship, noted in Ruth’s book as the most common contact experience in the Midwest in the late 50s and early 60s. They’ve progressed to the point where I get pulled in to conferences on board or even ‘somewhere in consciousness,’ occasionally while I’m functioning in an organizer and/or presenter role here on Earth simultaneously. It usually happens during times of respite, though.

The process we are engaging now and what I feel ‘The Conduit is Closing’ referred to is one of the notion of any fear-based living, wherever the notion may find a hook in human consciousness. The natural order of the universe is one of harmony, chaordic (chaos to order) in nature yet, like the tesseract, is constantly moving forward. I’ve witnessed this as a sense of connectedness and ‘oneness’ within humanity at present. There are certainly many who exhibit an advanced sense of knowing, understanding and even living this truth.

Innumerable planetary civilizations have evolved throughout the universe, each experiencing the movement toward a multidimensional experience. There have even been psycho-spiritual technologies presented here for exploration of this potential, and often experiencable,  reality. One such is called the Multi-plane Awareness Technique and I experienced it in 1989. I’ve also made it available online for others and incorporated the 9 Solfeggio frequencies, too. Perhaps it may help you in your own exploration. There is a certain faith and trust involved in the evolution of self toward Self, from ego to Wego. This can be a key component of exploring the realms of cosmic consciousness we have, condensed into these forms as Natural Order.

Now on the subject of human hybrids. I find this notion a bit shallow and certainly separative in nature, but completely understandable as a label put on those who are advanced souls (or whatever you might call them) that exhibit certain behaviors and capabilities of demonstrating, through articulation and actual living, appearing anomalous to most human perceptions.  These sorts, not being out of sort, have often remained hidden and yet influential in seeding the thoughtmosphere, able to use telepathic skills to create multiple levels of communication – human to human and ‘transceivers’ for celestial/cosmic/federation (yes, the Ashtar Command/Galactic Federation is made up of all races, united as ONE to help humanity evolve toward its rightful place in universe affairs) communication.

What humans listening to such things as the video above fail to recognize is that it is shared through human lenses, steeped in duality and inconsistent with cosmic consciousness. Humans, having the choice to stay separate or join as one, often remain separate because of the fear-based notions that have been so insidiously and surreptitiously promoted by a select few humans (read The Lucifer Principle). Humans, because of this, often fear the unknown as something threatening instead of being open to exploring new frontiers in love, the ‘free’ energy that permeates the space between each proton, electron and neutron in the atoms and molecules that make up our physical world.

According to many, I am a hybrid and am known as the son of Ashtar and Athena as well.  Yes, that has to do with the Ashtar Command. It is not by any of my doing personally. As a matter of fact, I’ve been reluctant to accept it and resistant to the notion for decades. Still, it persists and after putting it on the chopping block and whacking away at it for nearly 30 years, I’m beginning to consider it deeper. It certainly would explain why I’ve had so much contact and even found myself facilitating a meeting of hundreds of lifeforms in February of 2001 on board the New Jerusalem, themed with ‘First Contact.’ I cannot deny the experience, nor was it any kind of confabulation no matter how incredulous it sounds.

Regardless of experience or perception of others I’ve lived my life in a way that I am able to garner understanding of how people, places and things work together better (a possibilities coagulator) as well as develop a professional background of demonstrating it. I’ve been in a number of industries, facilitating projects with various missions and visions. One of the latest was as a facilitator for the F-35 Operations and Training Facility at Luke AFB, bringing the stakeholders of the project together in a ‘partnering’ workshop at the Naval Training Center at Luke AFB.

Ron James has some real momentum and poignant points to consider. I Am so thankful for the opportunity to be interviewed on his show, Bigger Questions, that has such great interviews of world-servers and contemporary change-agents…. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLzZRLz5z92lMM8GLDf8RHi0GfcL8f1uqq

I don’t know when the post-production of my interview will be done. I can only hope I measure up even slightly to the previous guests. Previous guests include iRobot Founder Colin Angle, Author/Futurist Elliot Maynard, Millennium Project’s Jerome Glen, Dr. Masaru Emoto and Gregg Braden. Apparently I’ve done my homework well. 🙂 I’m continuing, too, with an MIT course through U.Lab: Transforming Business, Society and Self and I’d encourage anyone to take it. They are taking this basic understanding of collaborative conversation to a new level.

So, perhaps what I’ve shared has given you a different perspective to ponder for a bit. I don’t expect you to believe a thing. What I hope is that you begin to test these possibilities, ask better or different questions than previously and observe what unfolds in front of you. If you are reading this, you already have a sense beyond most human understanding, so why not let that sense (or senses) continue to evolve and discover what is about to unfold with a little deeper level of faith, love and trust. It is okay to be skeptical, even to rip it up through all kinds of tests you may know or discover along the way. Eventually, you’ll be presented with the question of whether to accept what you’ve found and enjoy a new living awareness.. or not.

UFO World Disclosure Day

UFO World Disclosure Day

Continuing the Conversation

The media is starting to pay more attention to the reality of off planet visitors and, most recently Mr. Bassett was interviewed regarding such. It’s been years of hard work for this man and many others who’ve been supporting the Disclosure Movement.

Decades of work are beginning to pay off and everyone deserves a pat on the back, even the dissenters. Without them [dissenters] the drive to disclosure would no doubt have less passion. Below is Mr. Bassett’s most recent interview with more to come. Make sure you get plugged in to the Paradigm Research Group for updates and more….

From PRG:

On November 5, 2014 Paradigm Research Group (PRG) began shipping the 30-hour video record of the 2013 Citizen Hearing on Disclosure (CHD) to all congressional offices. The 10-disk DVD sets included a letter signed by the CHD witnesses asking for new congressional hearings on the extraterrestrial presence issue.

Since November 5, over 1,000,000 Twitter, Facebook and email messages have been sent to congressional offices announcing the Congressional Hearing Initiative (CHI) and the DVD set deliveries.

On January 6, 2015 the Disclosure Petition VII – Congressional Hearing ended its run on the White House website on February 5 with 13,897 signatures. Of the 68 active petitions it was #3 at that time. The petition accomplished its primary mission to inform the White House of the Initiative. [Why send a letter or email to the White House few if any will see when you can post your message on its website for a month?]

Since the 114th Congress convened on January 3, 160 congressional offices of members sitting on seven relevant committees received verbal requests for meetings with the appropriate staff.  Also, 70 offices of members sitting on the five key committees (two Select Committees on Intelligence, two Science/Space committees and the Senate Homeland Security committee) have received faxed requests for meetings.

Scores of military/agency/political witnesses of rank and station are prepared to testify under oath now before an appropriate congressional committee regarding events and evidence that collectively confirm an extraterrestrial presence. The top extraterrestrial related phenomena researchers in the world are also ready to testify. Areas of testimony would include numerous instances of nuclear weapons tampering, the history of a government imposed “truth embargo,” the Rockefeller Initiative, thousands of commercial/military pilot sightings, exclusion of the White House and the Congress (including the House and Senate Intelligence Committees) from briefings on the extraterrestrial presence issue, the Roswell, NM events of 1947, and much more.

The CHI is getting expanded coverage including the Washington Times, Roll Call, Mother Jones, MSNBC, New York, Huffington Post and the Chicago Tribune. More coverage is pending. In addition to print coverage PRG has given four dozen media interviews and more requests are coming in each week.

Meetings with congressional staff are underway on both the House and Senate side.

I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Steve for nearly two decades or so and find his work exemplary of making sense common… doing what needs to be done. Until we acknowledge the reality of ‘what is’ we cannot move forward collectively toward any harmonious end. It takes all of us to participate in some way, sharing the truth as only each of us can.

To help get yourself acquainted with the CHI more in-depth and up close, you might consider getting a copy for yourself so you can share with friends in a more intimate environment, or even publicly in local meetings. Here’s the link for purchase: Citizens Hearing on Disclosure: The Official Testimony.

Contact in the Desert 2015

Contact-Desert-2015Contact in the Desert – 2105

Contact in the Desert is growing into a premier Ufology event drawing thousands from around the world. When I first arrived on site in 2013 and ran ​into Paul Andrews, I was surprised. Then I decided to rekindle an association that started back in 1998. Paul had invited me to come work for him in LA, just off Venice Beach.

I had spectacular results in running The Prophets Conference in Phoenix the previous October. Jim-ZencompThe only bummer was Cody and Robyn Johnson split town without paying me or Jim Dilettoso (right), who had recommended me to them. We did get something later, but then I had to pay the local waste management and generator folks. It was a sad situation and no one suspected the Axiom Group of such behaviors.

Paul and I didn’t work out at the time back then, but it was good to see he had teamed up with Victoria to produce Contact in the Desert. It was a spectacular showing although at the worst time of year for most folks, especially the elderly. It took two years to move it to May and even this last weekend was a bit too much for many. I ran into a elderly woman using a walker who was obviously determined to be there, but had a heck of time in the heat. Perhaps moving it to a different meteor shower period – Lyrids Meteor Shower – might do, April 22-23 with a full moon on April 22.

Speaking of Victoria, Paul’s event partner, she even got into the act of sharing her experiences and understanding on one of the panels in the amphitheater. It was really great to see one of the event coordinators reveal their story. I’m sure the DVD is available through the Contact in the Desert website. All the presentations will be available soon. Ask around and get your favorites. I think you can get the whole package for around $100.

Zen&JohnAnthonyWest-compI love getting into the thick of things, consistent with my given name, Bruce (means ‘dweller of the thicket), and volunteered as an A/V runner delivering the master copies of DVDs to the duplication station just outside the Sanctuary, the main speaker location. I ran into many folks I’ve known for years and met some new folks as well, like John Anthony West.

Of course there were some challenges with the event. When you have a first-some, first-served entrance into the main events it can be a challenge to get in and/or have a decent seat. There were viewing areas outdoors as well that were packed, too. With folks like Erich Von Daniken, Giorgio Tsoukalos, Jimmy Church and George Noory present there is always a crowd around them. Even at 80 (Erich had a birthday over the weekend) he still stands and delivers with a rapid-fire onset of details and facts from years of experience.

Speaking of experience, Grant Cameron and I had a wonderful, albeit short, chat on Sunday andZen&Grant-comp he requested a copy of Zendor the Contrarian, so I’m waiting with baited breath for the review.  Grant is one of the most observant and reflective of the cadre of Ufologists. He’s a bit like Richard Dolan, who thought I must be tagged upon our initial meeting in Phoenix some years ago. The difference is Grant spends much less time on conspiracy as he looks for the threads of commonality in experiencers and evidence of a larger perspective of Communion amongst humanity and our visitors, entering a new state of consciousness.

The Experiencer Gatherings, hosted by Alan Steinfeld and Barbara Jean Lindsey on Friday and Barbara on Sunday were especially dear to my heart. Many folks come to find corroboration and validation in their experiences, even solace in the fact that they are not alone and their concerns are heard. Each has their own interpretation and understanding depending on their level of consciousness and observation capacity. What seemed to be stressed the most through the sharings was to not be afraid and embrace the energy instead of trying to fight it.

Danny&Zen-compNow that doesn’t mean complete surrender to that which you might feel dangerous. It was mentioned that although one may not be prepared, the process of evolution – coming to terms with the cosmic consciousness condensed into form – is tantamount to rising above the fear, guilt and shame game that inhibits the sense of Oneness that more advanced experiencers acknowledge. The sense of open-heartedness in the meetings was obvious in how folks treated one another, too.

The attendance for the event has grown by leaps and bounds, with parking strewn across the 17-acre grounds. I’m not sure of the exact attendance, but it seemed around a couple thousand. We had around five thousand come through at the Prophets Conference in 1997. Event attendance in general is down from years past, but it’s beginning to climb again. The contrast of being in the open-air instead of hotel or resort environments is refreshing, kinda of a Burning Man rendition of Ufology.

Walking around the grounds at night revealed many small groupings of folks enjoy each others DannySheehan-FREE-compcompany, perhaps for the first time. An observer could easily recognize the exuberance and childlike spontaneity of experiencers all across the event grounds. There were some real serious types that often find it difficult to be happy, but the majority of folks by far enjoyed the weekend of Contact in the Desert.

In view but not a big topic of discussion was the presence of FREE via posters Rey Hernandez left with me from the International UFO Congress in February. I’m already looking forward to next year. Thanks to Paul and Victoria and all the staff and volunteers who made this event a memorable one for thousands. In only its third year it is promising to be one of the largest gatherings in the world now. If you considered going this year, but didn’t, I’d make sure to get your ticket early next year.

Volunteers-FREEWe also invite you to find and visit the Rose Cottage in the evenings for some conversation and comaraderie. You’ll meet some of the most interesting folks in a much more intimate environment. Our small group of diverse and unique travelers will welcome you with style and grace. Look forward to seeing you there!

This year’s gathering included Ron James and Steven Bassett. Ron and I had met several years ago when he owned Dream Theater in the Village of Oak Creek, just outside Sedona. An old friend, Swami Beyondananda, was doing a show there. Ron runs a magnificent network called iVolveTV that features material you just have to explore. He also produced the Citizens Hearing DVDs.

Btw, we’re looking for more authors for UfologyPRSS. If you’d like to contribute, please sent us an email with your contact information and reason for wanting to be a contributor, plus a writing sample or link to something of yours online.
