It's not inevitable, but it's close. If there isn't massive thinning of the underbrush in the Ashland watershed, there will come a day when we look at each other in disbelief that we didn't do what was necessary to protect this town ---what we knew
was necessary, beyond a single doubt. So this week… Continue

One of my life long aspirations came to fruition last week as I was able to go gathering with a beautiful Native American woman named Cynthia King. Cynthia is the daughter of Wallace Black Elk and has been groomed to protect mother nature and teach the people about native herbs and their power to heal.
On the first day out in the wilderness she instructed me on how to listen to the plants and their needs. We went past many stands of herbs which I would have picked if not… Continue

I think there's magic to cycling. In part that belief comes from Cycle Oregon, which just finished its 22nd edition, seems to accomplish something that public leaders and government agencies have been knocking themselves out to do for as long as I've lived in Oregon.

If you wanted to keep the American people too divided to effectively demand real health care reform, try this: lay the lion's share of the health insurance burden on employers. There are millions of them, and they're not about to partner with people who sound like they want businesses to pay even more

In the wake of a Dark Age in open government (and the jury's out on how much really changed last January 20), I hear some say that government decision makers should never mull over policy behind closed doors. As in NEVER.
I don't think that's right. But I do think we're in a time that leaders better have a damn good, and damn clear, reason for closing the… Continue

Here is a welcome and anticipatory message from Babaji to all who are considering the upcoming Mother Kali Retreat:
As to the retreat on Sri Sri Ma Kali in Ashland Oregon, I am compelled to say that the words "ash land" apply very well in this context. In sacred songs and poems of Mother India, great poet/saints sing to the effect that "my soul has been transformed into a sacred cremation ground, and I sit there in meditation, surrounded by the ashes of what… Continue

Maestro conference allows individuals to connect and prosper together as groups of sharing gather, and individuals are able to bring their gifts. Even during recessions, there is an abundance of available opportunities. All that changes is the nature of the opportunities we have. Today, some of the best opportunities come through building relationships. People who thrive in a recession are those who are committed to getting connected and staying connected.
For this,… Continue
