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!
Spirit has an amazing way of bringing people to where they are needed for growth and to be of service for The Good of the All. Susan's family moved from Portland, Oregon when she was 6 to Klamath Falls. Gino left southern California when he graduated from high school and there we met, married, birthed out two sons, Forrest and River and worked with our Divine Teacher, Maede for nearly a decade, moving to Ashland in the mid-80's. Our work is guided from earth based wisdom; as we were both tree planters for eleven years as our part of our giving back to the earth mother. Susan went on to be a Wilderness Ranger for 15 years spending tremendous time alone in wild, remote places in southern Oregon. Gino, too worked as a Wildlife Biologist and Cultural Resource advisor as our goal in the 70's and into the early 80's was to walk some of the last of our roadless areas in southern Oregon and northern California while working with environmental groups, to protect as much wild, open space as possible. Maede helped us to understand our greater purpose to be of service. It is our pleasure to take people outside, into wild places to remember the simple things of earth to bring balance from Spirit into each day. Susan draws upon her Blackfeet/Ute/Piaute ancestory as guided from her grandmother. Together it is our honor to be of service to aid in this shape shifting quest of transformation.

Susan and Gino:
Thanks for adding me and I very much look forward to meeting you at some point in person.
Your work is outstanding and beautiful. Thank you for your kind words about the book I'm writing. I may ask you at some point to write a guest article for my website, as I believe you both have some extremely valuable and complimentary insight to offer.

There has been a 98% plummet in flu infections this year, dispelling fears of a Covid and flu ‘twin-demic’ about which many had warned. Experts say we can thank masks and social distancing. But does this really add up?
Although there is no mass testing for flu as there is for Covid, the WHO says that surveillance of data from around the world shows flu rates collapsing everywhere. Australia essentially ‘skipped’ their flu season this year, with not a single case reported since July (their peak). In fact, flu has more or less vanished throughout the Southern Hemisphere, and early indicators suggest it will follow suit north of the equator. What can explain this unprecedented decline?
Nursing homes have been especially hard-hit by the COVID-19 pandemic and workers in those facilities have been forced to make some difficult decisions on a professional and personal level.
While nursing homes only make up 1% of the US population, according to the Associated Press, they account for a significantly larger percentage of COVID-19 infections compared to the overall population.
As of this writing, there are 8.3 million people infected with the coronavirus in the US, and over 222,000 have died.
You probably haven’t heard of the Great Barrington Declaration. This is a petition started by three scientists on 4 October calling for governments to adopt a policy of ‘focused protection’ when it comes to Covid-19. They believe those most at risk should be offered protection — although it shouldn’t be mandatory — and those not at risk, which is pretty much everyone under 65 without an underlying health condition, should be encouraged to return to normal. In this way, the majority will get infected and then recover, gradually building up herd immunity, and that in turn will mean the elderly and the vulnerable no longer have to hide themselves away. According to these experts, this is the tried and tested way of managing the risk posed by a new infectious disease, dating back thousands of years.
Drawing on statements of numerous scholars from around the world—virologists, epidemiologists, immunologists, pathologists, microbiologists, infectious disease specialists, including Nobel Prize winners, as well as front-line ER physicians and family practice MDs—veteran journalist James Perloff asks hard questions about the global response to COVID-19.
