I do many things for no pay so I thought Id spell them all out so you could see them.. and if you feel moved to contribute/donate, go for it. If you need more details, ask me. If a film or article inspired you to change or alter your life somehow I would love to hear about it and perhaps even post your letter/comment on this site or at the site, or both.


1. Keep an ongoing list of 30 topics and send material out periodically, video clips, articles, events...

2. Screen transformational films in the tri-county area for a reasonable price and often a range of affordability...

3. send articles, reports, video clips to thousands of people who are on my lists (see

4. post articles and book reviews and video clips, trailers to the website

5. write book reviews, publish book reviews, repost book reviews and articles.

6. pay the annual fee to have a website and a monthly fee to have DirectMail which allows me to send events, articles, etc and to study their reports on these emailings;

7. watch, study, research films in many varied area: spiritual, environmental, nature, healing, controversial, energy alternatives, breakthrough energies, greater community in the universe, solutions, channeled information, political unravelings and unveilings... and pay the necessary fee in order to screen them publicly.

10. I started deep conversation gatherings at my home, free of charge.

11. I lead deep laughter journeys whenever I can for free or donations.

12. I spend way too much time on the computer connecting, relating, conversing.

13. I write lots and need more spacious time so I can actually either create a blog or create eBooks or do both, of course.

14. What I really love to do is facilitating conversations after the films. I love listening to people and probing deeper and having a conversation so its just not me yakking away... as well as finding cool people to speak after a film when they have lots of expertise...

15. Im in the process of talking to people about creating a quarterly PRiNT full color, tabloid 12 pager that would be distributed in the tri-county area. The purpose would be to act as a PORTAL of edgy, cool, exciting, energetic, and passionate activities/projects in the tri-county area...
