Seeds of Change

by Tom Bender

Tom Bender

Tom Bender is an architect, strategic planner, visionary thinker, and feng-shui practitioner living on the coast of Oregon in the US. Tom has been at the forefront of the sustainability movement for twenty-five years. In 1971, Bender quietly published a study, "Living Lightly", which showed how the U.S. could reduce energy use by a phenomenal 90% while simultaneously improving quality of life. I first met Tom in cyberspace when we linked our web sites, and had an interesting correspondence. I asked him if he would consider writing an article for us. It's a synthesis of where we are geomantically as we enter the new millennium.

A Labyrinth Story at Kay Torrez's Place in SW Arizona

by Alex Champion

Alex Champion

I first met Alex Champion in 1991 at "The Year of the Maze" conference in Saffron Walden in Essex, England. I knew that he was building labyrinths and magical mazes out on the West Coast in California. He is an Earth Magician who can turn a steep slope in to magical winding paths, or can take a small plot of land and transform it into wonderful simple magical maze. There is a longer bio of Alex at the end of this exciting article. As I wrote to Alex, the following is not exactly what I had been expecting, but it sure gives an eye-opening glimpse of the possibilities in sacred space!

Merryvale Stone Rows

by Sig Lonegren

Sig Lonegren

Many people want to know what the different kinds of things they might do in a sacred site. There are a number of different ways to become involved. They range from the very scientific to totally intuitive. Here are a few of the ways Sig Lonegren has related so far to just one of these sites - Merryvale Stone Rows in Dartmoor, Devon, England.

Sig Lonegren runs Mid-Atlantic Geomancy, and has been actively involved with things geomantic for over twenty-five years. He has a Masters Degree "Sacred Space," an interdisciplinary study that focused on archaeoastronomy, sacred geometry, and the Earth Energies (as experienced through dowsing).

Four Treasures Arrangement

by Searles O'Dubhain

Searles O'Dubhain

I first heard of Searles O'Dubhain through a mutual friend, the Druidic Teacher and Herbalist Ellen Evert Hopman. She sent me this piece in June, and it has led me on a cyber trail into some very interesting Celtic material. Summerlands is a very interesting and innovative web site that explores all things Celtic in great depth. In this article, I found his comments - especially the archaeological evidence - to be quite fascinating.

Nature Supports Us in Our Efforts

by Joseph Korn

Joey Korn

Joey wrote an article for our Summer Solstice issue of the MAG E-zine and asked if he could write another follow-up one. Joey is an active dowser, and took part in a geomantic panel discussion at the ASD Convention in August. He is an active writer, and is about to come out with a new book, "Empowering Yourself and Working with Nature through Dowsing." There have been other articles that have been written about Earth Energies coming to labyrinths. Joey presents evidence of Earth Energies coming to his home. As he says, "Nature works to support us in our efforts by responding to our intent with her energies." This is a rather amazing concept!

Some Thoughts on Ethics

by Palden Jenkins

Pandel Jenkins

I have known and worked closely with Palden Jenkins for over a decade. Along with my publisher, Jamie George of Gothic Image, Palden organized the first Earth Mysteries Gathering I ever attended for Samhain 1983 at the Assembly Rooms in Glastonbury. In the mid-eighties, he instigated OakDragon, which runs ten day outdoor camps that are universities of the trees. He is an author, editor and teacher living in Glastonbury, England, and now runs the Hundredth Monkeying inner aid project, a growing soul-family of people working in the area of planetary transformation. His latest book ' Healing the Hurts of Nations' is available free on Internet. In this article, "Some Thoughts on Ethics," Palden offers some unusual perspectives about how what we do as geomancers may effect others.

Stone Circles And (Cosmic) Teachers Of Humankind

by Evgueni Faidych

Speaking about the formation of human civilisation, metahistory, as well as descent of Spirit into matter one should especially consider the subject of humankind's contact with the highest planes of reality.
