John Judge, independent researcher and author, shares his observations related to US government policies and their effects on the world both inside and outside our borders. John also shares his practical ideas for how we can transform our government from one of secrecy to one of true democracy. John says,"Our choice now seems to be between a 'new war' and a new world. As always, the forces of reaction and wealth are telling us we have no choice but war, and no right or power to decide. They are calling for a secret investigation, a secret conviction, a secret method of execution, and a totally secret war abroad. The American people as a whole are the only ones in the world who have the right to decide on a national response to this tragedy, and it must be one that takes into account the rights of all the other peoples and nations of the world" You can read more of John's commentaries at www.ratical.org, you can read more about John's practical ideas for democratic reform at his Real Democracy website. One of John's mentors was Mae Brussell. You can listen to recordings of Mae's shows at www.maebrussell.com

Fr. Charlie Moore, retired Catholic priest and modern mystic, will share his insights on living a spirit-filled and joyous life. Father Charlie has traveled extensively in search of the ancient roots of religious practice. His quest has taken him to Britain, Europe, Hawaii, Alaska, Mexico, and India as well as the homelands of several Native American tribes. He is a firm believer in Christ and celebrates the Holy Eucharist at every Sunday gathering. However, he has found the Buddhist, Hindu, Jewish, Hawaiian, American Indian, and old Celtic religions most helpful in understanding and supporting his Christian faith. He graduated from Stanford University (AB 1949, LLB 1951), is admitted to practice law in California, and was elected District Attorney of Santa Cruz County in 1954. He was ordained a Roman Catholic Priest in 1964 and holds degrees in philosophy and theology from Catholic University. His avocation is language: he has studied Spanish, French, Italian, German, Welsh, Russian and Japanese and is acquainted with Sanskrit and Chinese, etc. He studied Latin at a Benedictine monastery and Greek at a Jesuit seminary. Father Charlie weaves the threads of many spiritual traditions into the familiar fabric of the Christian heritage, making plain the common path, The Way, to spiritual awakening laid out by avatars and teachers from ancient Sumer to modern Catholicism.
Connie Kellough, publisher of the international best-seller The Power of Now, shares her insights and observations resulting from her study and practice of the wisdom expresses by Eckhardt Tolle. "Connie Kellough met Eckhart Tolle shortly after he came to Canada from England in 1996. Since then they have developed a very close friendship and working relationship. Always endeavoring to follow the dictum of Mahatma Ghandi to 'First be the truth you want to see in others', Connie took up with alacrity and utter commitment living the teachings and practices in Eckhart’s acclaimed best seller THE POWER OF NOW. Because Connie did not 'awaken' suddenly, as Eckhart Tolle did, but like most of us is in 'the awakening process,' she is able to speak to LIVING THE POWER OF NOW in a very personal and highly human way. She is able to speak to the changes that occurred in her life, to the challenges of dealing with the pain-body and of meeting with the unconsciousness in the world - and too of being drawn back again and again into the reactivity that comes from the egoic 'little me.' Through teaching, sharing and dialogue with participants Connie deepens people’s understanding of what it means in practical terms to say 'Yes' to the new state of consciousness that is pressing to emerge through so many of us on the planet right now."

Father Charlie Moore, retired Catholic priest and mystic explorer, explains why this is the time for people of the world to experience the world as one nation. By gathering in small groups, those groups can become small nations with as few as a dozen people. Small groups can start a wave of unity that moves around the earth with the rising sun. Our small gathering will try to initiate a wave of love and unity. “E Pluribus Unum” is what communion is all about. It is above the Eagle on the dollar bill. It is more than a saying about our nation, it is sharing one-spiritedness with the people gathered all around you. Our nation was founded on principles based on the spiritual and political democracy of the Native Americans. It is time that we recognize and appreciate our true roots. Father Charlie is speaking this week at two different SHIFT events WEDNESDAY, March 19, at the Divine Science Community Center (1540 HICKS Ave in San Jose) and THURSDAY, March 20, at the Redwood City Women's Club (149 CLINTON St. in Redwood City).

The practitioner uses his/her entire body as a "vehicle of Light" to enhance nature's innate healing properties. Sounds, specific hand positions and techniques, and shamanic elements effect the bio-electric and bio-magnetic fields to cleanse intra-psychic blocks and resistances to personal fulfillment."
