A New Radio Gig + Crop Circles and OWS

Thanks to John Stephenson, who had me on his weekly radio show, Thresholds Into Other Realms, talking about crop circles, I’ll be doing a segment with him regularly. Outside the Box will be about contemporary occurrences or situations that don’t fit in ordinary reality. As I’m looking to expand my playing field to other things that make us rethink reality, “scratch our heads to open our minds” is the idea.

My introductory Outside the Box is the first half hour of part two from last week:

John is a sweetie. Here’s his email to me:

Here is the info I posted throughout the web, I talked you up everywhere  🙂

Also, once it airs it’s picked up on ITunes and about 100 different podcasting sites worldwide. Plus we are a featured show on The UFO Paranormal Radio Network, which also is worldwide.

Don’t miss this Sunday’s “Thresholds Into Other Realms.” We are very pleased to announce that the one and only Suzanne Taylor (the Crop Circle Queen) will be starting her new segment on our show this week! It’s called “Outside The Box” and it will cover all the wild, weird, unusual and downright strange news of the world.

I added this line as a comment:

For those of you who don’t know Suzanne Taylor, here is a little link for you: http://imdb.com/name/nm0853220

And for Netflix to carry it, we need more Netflix subscribers to ask for What On Earth? in their queues. Here’s the direct link for the request:  http://bit.ly/pbkqgG.


I am so moved by this extraordinary situation of OWS spreading throughout the world. Either the help crop circles can offer for opening people’s minds will be unnecessary, or perhaps it could be more useful than ever. This is a comment I just made on Reality Sandwich to Occupy Wall Street: No Demand is Big Enough, by Charles Eisenstein, and the intelligent comments that followed it.

After all the smarts above me — and I bow to them – as a Phi Beta Kappa, summa cum laude graduate of NYU I have smarts, too, about how crapped up we’ve made the world and about the incredible OWS movement. But how to get it to achieve any objectives? There’s the rub.

The forces of fundamental change are mysterious and elusive, all fitting into that old Hegelian dialectic of thesis, antithesis and synthesis. Antithesis is well along now, and how to shove it over to synthesis is the head scratcher. It could just emerge, like the Berlin wall coming down or the Soviet Union collapsing – somehow it “just happens” when the contradictions to the status quo get too great for the center to hold. Are we at that point? Who knows? But if there were anything to do to evoke the new crystallization wouldn’t that be wonderful? Of course. So here’s my offering.

If it were ascertained that the crop circle phenomenon is for real and that we are being visited by other intelligence, that could be the peaceful shock and awe that could do it for us. All of a sudden, all human beings would be in relation to an otherness – all of us in one curiosity, buzzing together to make sense of what is greater than we are. Buzzing together, we could rethink everything — a consummation devoutly to be wished for, as Willie the Shakes would have said.

No need to argue here about whether there is a mystery to the phenomenon, which no one can know for sure – am just advocating that attention be paid. There is data to be scrutinized, and making that inquiry could turn out to be a very very good thing to do.


What made me a crop circle believer!

In 1993, during my first visit to England, I met Shirley Gifford, who looked to be a typical English housewife, in a crop circle. She told me this story.

The day that formation, made up of two main circles, came in, she and a friend had visited it. She brought a new set of dowsing rods, but there were so many people in the formation that they left and went back early the next morning. When they discovered a third circle — which had a tuft of standing wheat in the center — had been added, they left to report this to some members of the Centre for Crop Circles Studies, who were visiting from America.

When Shirley and her friend returned, still early, she noted that six of the stalks of wheat in the center tuft had bent over, but she didn’t particularly think anything of it and remained in the circle with her back to the center, talking to her friend. A few more people came, and, when she heard them remarking on the fantastic cone shape in the center, she turned around and “there in the centre of the circle was a tightly formed cone. Every single stalk of corn [it was wheat but the English call all grains “corn”] had bent over, twisted and knotted itself into that shape. Yet no one had entered or left the circle at any time. It happened before our very eyes, yet we didn’t see or hear a thing.” Shirley had become kind of the mother of that circle, hanging out in it and telling people the story.

Here’s a picture of her making my drawing of what had happened to the standing tuft.


Here’s the drawing up close — notice Shirley has signed it.

Crop Circles as a Portal to Personal and Planetary Transformation

This is a  wonderful opportunity for people to get tuned into the ramifications of the crop circles. I was thrilled to be invited to help to conceive and to host this 4 part webinar that will start August 20. I think it will be dynamite! Check it out for yourselves, and then, if you would, please spread the word.

Here’s the mailing from Evolver Intensives, the sponsor:

What messages are crop circles trying to communicate to us, and are they an invitation for us to shift our worldview?

Join filmmaker Suzanne Taylor and her line-up of guests for the live interactive video course, “Crop Circles as a Portal to Personal and Planetary Transformation” — 4 potentially awareness-shifting sessions, starting August 20th, produced by Evolver Intensives.

The spiritual aspect to the circles often is ignored in discussions about how they are created and whether they are “real.” Not so for our host, Suzanne Taylor. For more than two decades, Suzanne has been captivated by the circles, so much so that she was the force behind CROP CIRCLES: Quest for Truth, the first feature documentary ever made about the circles, which she served as Executive Producer. She went on to produce and direct the award-winning documentary, What On Earth?, which continues to bring the message of the circles to a worldwide audience. Suzanne sees the phenomenon as a spur to humanity to see ourselves as part of a bigger picture, which would help free us from the small-mindedness that leads us to be so destructive to one another and to the planet.

In this course, you will discover how crop circles offer a doorway for you to find yourself in an interconnected universe that is far more miraculous, mysterious, and beautiful than most people imagine.

* Discover the connection between historic Native Americans spiritual practices and crop circles in the United States.
* Observe the sacred geometry that guides the circle design and see how it relates to the design of the universe.
* Learn about the science that proves crop circles are creations beyond any technology known to humanity.
* Get insight into how the circles are calling humanity to move away from its materialist worldview.
* Feel the call of the circles to live in harmony with nature.

In this interactive video series, you will engage with well-respected, fascinating individuals who have had profound involvements with the crop circles. Featured presenters include:

* John Martineau: sacred geometry expert, publisher of Wooden Books and author of QUADRIVIUM: The Four Classical Liberal Arts of Number, Geometry, Music and Cosmology
* Daniel Pinchbeck: author of 2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl
* Nancy Talbott: President of the BLT Research Team, Inc., established in 1991 to carry out scientific evaluation of crop circle plants and soils.
* Gary Bobroff: Jungian psychologist, author of Jung, Crop Circles & the Re-Emergence of the Archetypal Feminine
* Jeffrey Wilson: leading researcher of US circles, Director and Co-Founder of the Independent Crop Circle Researchers’ Association

This will be a live, dynamic experience in which you become part of a community sharing real time with thought-shapers who have been closely involved with the crop circle phenomenon.

It all starts on Saturday, August 20th. To learn more, visit: http://evolverintensives.com/upcoming/personal-planetary-transformation.html
