Jean-Paul became one of the pioneers of organic agriculture and CSA in Columbia County and in 1991, Roxbury became the first CSA farm to have a community in New York City. Since 1990, Roxbury has been a nationally recognized leader in organic, biodynamic, and Community Supported Agriculture (CSA). Since 1992, Jean-Paul has led workshops for farmers in other parts of the country and in 1994, he helped to found CRAFT, an organization that trains organic farm apprentices. In 2000, Roxbury became a leader in the farmland protection movement, as a central component in a land acquisition and conservation effort that will not only secure the long term future of Roxbury's farmland, but will be a model for other farms in the Hudson Valley and all over the country. In 2004, Jean-Paul received the Patrick Madden Award for Sustainable Agriculture from SARE (Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education). This award is a biannual prize for producers who are not only profitable, but also value the environment and their communities. Jody Bolluyt became a partner in 2001. She supervises the day to day farm work and is responsible for the harvest management, distribution, and does much of the administrative work of the CSA membership.

Rupert Sheldrake, Scientist, Author, Visionary
Rupert Sheldrake is a biologist and author and scientific visionary. In his early days at Cambridge where he studied biology and biochemistry he found that there was a great gulf between his original inspired interest in life-- actual living organisms-- and the kind of biology he was taught: orthodox, mechanistic biology which essentially denies the life of organisms but instead treats them as machines. Rupert discovered the work of Goethe, and a different kind of science, a holistic science that integrated direct experience and understanding. He went on to explore new ideas in quantum theory, philosophy of science, parapsychology, alternative medicine, and the holistic philosophy of nature. He lived for a year and a half at the ashram of Fr Bede Griffiths in South India, where he wrote "A New Science of Life" (Blond and Briggs, 1981). Among other works he authored is "The Presence of the Past" (Collins 1988), "The Rebirth of Nature" (Century, 1990), "Trialogues at the Edge of the West" with Ralph Abraham and Terence McKenna, (Bear and Co., 1992) and with Matthew Fox he co-authored "Natural Grace: Dialogues on Science and Spirituality" (Bloomsbury, 1996) and "The Physics of Angels" (Harper Collins, 1996). His book "Dogs that Know When Their Owners are Coming Home, and Other Unexplained Powers of Animals" (Hutchinson) was published in 1999, and won the British Scientific and Medical Network Book of the Year Award. In July 2000 he was the H. Burr Steinbach visiting scholar at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, in Massachusetts. His most recent book is "The Sense of Being Stared At, And Other Aspects of the Extended Mind" (Hutchinson 2003). He is currently a Fellow of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, San Francisco. Rupert lives in Hampstead, London, England with his wife, Jill Purce and their two sons. Jill is the pioneer of the international sound healing movement. Check out the Jill Purce website.

Truth Consciousness and Prabhushri Swami Amar Jyoti
Truth Consciousness, founded in 1974 by Prabhushri Swami Amar Jyoti, maintains Ashrams and Spiritual Centers in the United States devoted to the principles of Truth and Dharma (Righteousness) and the freeing of human consciousness into Divine Consciousness.
The spiritual awakening on earth that Swami Amar Jyoti reveals is the glorious destiny of mankind, once freed from our limited identity of self. Lovingly and ceaselessly, He continues to uplift and purify each of us for this awakening, for His way is the ancient relationship of the Guru to the disciple, the candle lit directly from the burning flame of Truth. He constantly reminds us that we are at a breakthrough into a new age, where religions will be transformed into direct awakening and communion with our Highest Source. Like a mother whose love knows no bounds for her child, the Guru guides and nurtures the disciple on his or her own path to perfection, revealing in Himself the attainable Reality of God Consciousness.
Teaching from the basis of eternal Truth, the message of Swami Amar Jyoti’s Satsangs (Sanskrit: communion with Truth) is one of deep spiritual unity. His way is not to espouse a particular creed but to impart a spiritual way of life. He spent four decades (1961-2001) awakening and uplifting countless souls around the world to God Consciousness and disseminating the timeless Truth underlying all traditions and faiths. Prabhushri Swamiji is the author of several books; over seven hundred of His oral discourses, illuminating the classical path for modern times, are available on CD and audiocassette. This Satsang is edited from Meditation and the Simple Life (I-15). A full catalog of Satsangs by Swami Amar Jyoti in audio format is available at truthconsciousness.org, or call us at 520-743-8821 for a free copy by mail.
[Note: Curtis Lang & Jane Sherry, Founders of Satya Center highly recommend that you order a subscription to their beautiful, uplifting & inspiring magazine Light of Consciousness and sign up for their free e-newsletter which you can do by phone or at their website.]

Clarifying the Timeline of Change: 2012 and Beyond!

June 24, 2012 is the “critical mass” point, the date of the initial partile pass of Uranus in first-quarter square to Pluto (exactly 90° ahead). That day, month, and even season does not, however, represent any “great awakening.” Rather, it is simply the first of the seven exact passes Uranus will make to Pluto over the three years from summer 2012 through spring 2015.
