My wife and I started a four weekend, Advanced Attunement Class this month. What a fine group of people in the class. The Attunement current is strong and clear and the response to what is offered is clean and passionate. We are using the 250-page Attunement: The Creator’s Magic workbook as the basis for the class.

The television show was explaining the various attributes of the Hittite culture, noting particularly their innovative legal system and their unique agreement on how to select a ruler King. Both elements were new to the world scene at that time and these changes prompted shifts in
The BP oil spill continues to make the headlines day after day. Although there is now a small dome covering and capturing some of the gushing oil, it is becoming more apparent that this sad saga of environmental degradation will not end until the relief wells are drilled (estimated early August). A relief well is the oil industries’ final way to end a leaking oil well, an open bleeding wound in the earth. I worked as a civil engineer in the Gulf of Mexico oil fields in 1969 and 1970, helping to build oil drilling and storage platforms and laying
