1 ~ INSTRUCTIONS: Please answer the following five questions to inform the community about yourself and enhance your experience at the Ashland Source Center. Answers are NOT REQUIRED to join, and you can always fill them out later on your MYPORTAL page.
2 ~ What brought you to Ashland & Southern Oregon area? Let us know what’s been inspiring you these days!
My husband and I were looking for a new place to live so we took a tour of the west coast on our honeymoon. We stopped in Ashland to see a play and visit the area and promptly bought 38 acres of property out in the Applegate Valley. That was in 1988.
3 ~ What would you love to offer to and share with our community? What do you envision could be a few of the most beneficial things that could happen from actively using this site? Feel free to be outrageous!
Energy medicine classes and treatment sessions, as well as therapeutic massage.
Bio Mat Distributor.
4 ~ Please describe any projects or businesses you'd like to develop, if any? What is your "JOB" (aka "Joy of Being")? What especially delights you?
Along with Debra Hurt Burchard, I will be teaching the first year of Donna Eden's two-year Energy Medicine Certification Program here in the Rogue Valley as well as in the Bay Area. Some day I'd like to co-create a full energy medicine program within a massage school that would run alongside the massage and science curriculums. I imagine this to be a 1000 hour, 15 month program much like the Boulder College of Massage Therapy in Boulder, Colorado.
5 ~ Which intriguing concepts, local endeavors, links, music, art, websites, books, films, inventions have you been exploring?
I frequently recommend the Abraham-Hicks books and CDs, as well as James Ray's books and videos. The book that has had the biggest impact in my life recently is The Way of Mastery - along the lines of A Course in Miracles, but infinitely more readable.
Janie's Top Five Movies: Songcatcher, Monsoon Wedding, Bagdad Cafe, African Queen, Phenomenon.
My family LOVES rockin' to Michael Franti!

Leiden researchers have compiled information collected by scientists over the past 120 years into a database of plant-fungal interactions. This important biological data is now freely available for researchers and nature conservationists. Publication in New Phytologist.
A team of organizations has completed construction of a ground-breaking eco-building in Morocco that combines hemp construction with a high-tech solar energy system for total independence from the electrical grid.
The SUNIMPLANT project, designed as a single-family dwelling, was created as an entrant in the recent “Solar Decathlon” organized by the United States Department of Energy and Morocco’s Centre de recherche en Energie solaire et Energies nouvelles. The biannual international competition challenges teams of students to design and construct solar-powered buildings. The most recent edition was hosted in Ben Guerir, Morocco, the first time the competition has been held on the African continent.
While the human race is momentarily incarcerated, and even as a record-size hole opens in the ozone layer above the Arctic, the earth has given us an indication of her ability to heal. Even in our moments of sickness and loss we cannot help but hold our collective breath in wonder at the show she has put on. But plans are afoot to put an end to all of that. In India, for example, just in these last few days, a large portion of a tiger reserve is about to be turned over to a religious gathering—the Kumbh Mela—which attracts tens of millions of Hindu pilgrims. An elephant reserve in Assam is being marked off for coal mining, and thousands of acres of pristine Himalayan forest in Arunachal Pradesh marked off for submergence by the reservoir of a new hydroelectric dam. Meanwhile, not to be outdone, President Trump has signed an executive order allowing mining on the moon.
Rising from the Ashes, from Trout Unlimited, follows the scientists studying the summer steelhead resurgence in Washington’s Elwha River. Since the removal of the Elwha Dam in 2011 and the Glines Canyon Dam in 2014, these fish are now free to run from the Pacific Ocean up into the Olympic Peninsula.
While the most current trend in business aviation is all about creating the next generation of electric and hybrid-powered aircraft, a new kind of space race could emerge if the physics actually support the theory behind Eather One.
Designer Michal Bonikowski’s concept is probably four or five generations ahead of the current mode of thinking, but Bonikowski told Robb Report that he was inspired by the recent Maveric concept by Airbus. “That aircraft’s unique design helps reduce drag while providing more cabin space,” he said. “I have been thinking a lot about this lately, and wondered what could happen if a big company would like to create an electric plane.”
