Spirits in Spacesuits


Register Now for 2023 Retreat – “Mysticists: The Next Stage of Our Evolution?” – March 19–22, Healdsburg CA

From the time I was a teenager in Ireland, the Celt in me wanted to weave a triple-knot story reminiscent of the standing–stones petroglyphs of the Druids and the illustrations of The Book of Kells. And so, I have spent the last 60 years interlacing my studies of science, psychology, and spirituality into one holistic thread.

As part of this thinking, I have striven to liberate spirituality from the reductionism of religion and the concomitant abasement of scriptural revelation to mere literalist, fear-based dogma.

And I’ve attempted to set science free from an outdated monist–materialism which, in spite of over a hundred years of study in the field of quantum mechanics, still pretends that matter is all that exists, and that consciousness is an illusion.

And so, some years back, I invented the term, “Mysticists” to mean a hybrid group who are both mystics and scientists. I believe that this is the next phase of human evolution.

So, in the 2023 Retreat – God willin’ an’ de creek don’t rise – I plan to focus on the two parts of my book, “Setting God Free,” which were not covered in last year's retreat - “Setting Science Free” and “Setting Spirituality Free.”

And I’m REALLY looking forward to hugging a whole lot of people!
