When I was sixteen, I set off on an adventure that would bring me to where I am today. Leaving my family farm on Vancouver Island, I hitchhiked across BC to this festival that I had only heard tales about around campfires in the early mornings. That festival was Shambhala. Up to this point in my life, I had felt very alone, I grew up in paradise, but a paradise that lacked one major thing… Community. For most my youth it was just my brother and I.

Damanhur - Welcome Office and University - Visit The Temples of Humankind Click here to see the fullscreen version The Federation of Damanhur opens the door on its most precious realization, the Temples dedicated to Humanity: an extraordinary, underground construction, begun in 1978 and created entirely by hand. It has been declared a work of art by the Soprintendenza alle Belle Arti (Fine Art Authority). The Hall of Mirrors, the Hall of Water, the Hall of the Earth, the Labyrinth and the Hall of Metals: one after another extraordinary environments that touch the heart and soul, the mind and senses. Bringing to light all the beauty to be found inside each one of us. The Temples are in fact a journey of initiation, the ritual representation of the inner rooms of every human being: Passing through the rooms and along the corridors of the Temples is a journey inside the self, a spiritual pilgrimage open to all creeds and convictions.

Kailasa - A Transformational Retreat & Academy (Redding, CA Welcome to Kailasa Kailasa is a group of Social Architects and Cultural Pioneers uniting to provide concrete examples of how we can live and thrive in peace and harmony, with ourselves and with our environment. To do this, we are creating a diversity of intentional communities, with sustainability, education, and health and nutrition as the core concepts. The members of the Kailasa team have made the restructuring of our society and culture a primary focus of life, only to be set aside to attend to the persistent nagging to generate enough income to satisfy the "cost of living" in the current socioeconomic system. Unlike most for-profit corporations where the employees are compensated for their "40 hours a week," our team members are living and breathing this, even while they are at their day job.

Filthy India Photos, Chinese Netizen Reactions Filthy India Photos, Chinese Netizen Reactions Note from Fauna: The following post and collection of photographs spread on the Chinese internet in 2008. On Tianya, Mop, LiuLiu (and many other Chinese forums): Reflections in the midst of extreme poverty and filth — a record of a trip in India India is the dirtiest country I have ever been to. I have heard people say that Pakistan, which is to the west and Bangladesh, to the east, are worse, but that is probably beyond the limits of my imagination.
Rent a White Guy - Magazine Matt Dorfman Not long ago I was offered work as a quality-control expert with an American company in China I’d never heard of. No experience necessary—which was good, because I had none. I’d be paid $1,000 for a week, put up in a fancy hotel, and wined and dined in Dongying, an industrial city in Shandong province I’d also never heard of. Rent a White Guy - Magazine
300 Years of FOSSIL FUELS in 300 Seconds
At last, we have reached the end of the classic Mayan Long Count calendar, the 5,125-year cycle that ends on December 21 of this year. The mainstream media has, predictably, used the occasion to ridicule the straw man they irresponsibly helped to set up: That this was a doomsday threshold, as silly as Y2K. At the same time, the worst and best predictions of alternative theorists ranging from Graham Hancock to Paul LaViolette to Jose Arguelles, Terence McKenna, John Major Jenkins, David Wilcock, and Carl Johan Calleman have failed to materialize. Apparently, a galactic superwave is not engulfing our planet, as LaViolette proposed. The End of the Beginning The End of the Beginning
