Wake up and smell the smoke...



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

Traditional Native Wild Crafting | Healthy Transformation

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

More than a Bike Ride



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. CO makes it look easy, and… Continue

Why Should Bosses pay?



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 of the bill.



Thus… Continue

A bad time for closed doors



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

Mother Kali Retreat in Ashland

Namaste Everyone,

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

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

We Have Five Years To Save Ourselves From Climate Change, Harvard Scientist Says | Forbes

The level of carbon now in the atmosphere hasn't been seen in 12 million years, a Harvard scientist said in Chicago Thursday, and this pollution is rapidly pushing the climate back to its state in the Eocene Epoch, more than 33 million years ago, when there was no ice on either pole. "We have exquisite information about what that state is, because we have a paleo record going back millions of years, when the earth had no ice at either pole. There was almost no temperature difference between the equator and the pole," said James Anderson, a Harvard University professor of atmospheric chemistry best known for establishing that chlorofluorocarbons were damaging the Ozone Layer.

Scientists Keep Warning About The Dangers of 5G; Will We Listen? | Gaia

Over 180 scientists and doctors in almost 40 countries are warning the world about 5G health risks. “Resolution 1815 of the Council of Europe” spells it out quite succinctly: “We, the undersigned scientists, recommend a moratorium on the roll-out of the fifth generation, 5G, until potential hazards for human health and the environment have been fully investigated by scientists independent from industry. 5G will substantially increase exposure to radio frequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF)… and has been proven to be harmful for humans and the environment.”

Humans Are Speeding Extinction and Altering the Natural World at an ‘Unprecedented’ Pace | The New York Times

Humans are transforming Earth’s natural landscapes so dramatically that as many as one million plant and animal species are now at risk of extinction, posing a dire threat to ecosystems that people all over the world depend on for their survival, a sweeping new United Nations assessment has concluded. The 1,500-page report, compiled by hundreds of international experts and based on thousands of scientific studies, is the most exhaustive look yet at the decline in biodiversity across the globe and the dangers that creates for human civilization. A summary of its findings, which was approved by representatives from the United States and 131 other countries, was released Monday in Paris. The full report is set to be published this year.
