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

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).
