Earlier in 2009, the U.S. Department of Energy (DoE) solicited
concept papers for funding innovative energy technology research and
development. Some of us who have followed free energy developments
were cautiously optimistic about these developments, because, up until
now, the DoE has been in denial about anything beyond solar and wind,
and even spends a pittance on the traditional renewables compared to
the untold hundreds of billions of dollars they spend on research on
fossil fuel technologies (hydrocarbons) and nuclear power and nuclear
So my colleague Wade Frazier (www.ahealedplanet.net) and I decided to
draft a concept paper to the DoE. Our idea was really quite simple:
(1) poll the American public about their attitudes toward the
POSSIBILITY of a breakthrough decentralized clean energy economy and
making the transition from our current polluting multitrillion dollar
energy mix as painless as possible; and (2) advising the DoE about the
most promising R&D options, and safe implementation and transition
strategies, free of vested interests. Part of our philosophy in
designing this task was that, by its very nature, if our future energy
were to be truly "free," then our own effort should be of minimal cost
for the taxpayer. We therefore asked for $1 (plus occasional travel,
as needed) to support our proposed task.
Needless to say, the proposal was turned down, but we can only hope
that some technologies will be supported by the DoE under this
program. Or is this effort just another attempt to cover up the most
promising technologies? Time will tell.
Meredith and I returned from a five-week odyssey on three
continents, very stimulated about the new connections made and the
ideas shared. We are more optimistic about new openings for humankind, new agendas with hope for us all. But we need to stand up for the truth and to forgive the past.
On August 22 and 23 we hosted the
Energy-Environment-Economics-Education-Ethics conference here at Montesueños, and it was a great success! The attendance of about
thirty, although a bit lower than our other offerings, was unique
for attracting people who are already here in Ecuador for other
reasons (locals, people coming in from other Ecuadorian locations, and
people touring the area or looking for a place to live). This event
was therefore a minimal carbon-footprint conference, and also a
gathering of like minds aware that we must try out things totally new,
in order to survive and thrive in these times. We also had a chance to
go into more depth about confronting the leading issues of our time
with honesty and with an openness to radically positive solutions such
as free energy.
It feels like a tribe is gathering here, and, in the future this
argues for having week-long workshops among kindred spirits to develop
strategies for transforming our gluttonous and warmongering ways
toward a new ethic that protects, respects and celebrates all of life
through cooperation rather than competition. So look for future
announcements about unique gatherings we plan to have here at Montesueños during 2010. Meanwhile, we are still open for our B&B
Personally, Meredith and I are taking a well-deserved rest from our
very public lives over the past two months spanning three continents,
including more than a dozen presentations in eight widely-scattered
locations; some of my presentations are video-linked to this site. In
September, I will be posting an assimilated version of this important
period of our lives, both in terms of observations and reactions to
the big picture, and how they might fit into the bigger picture about
humanity's struggle with malevolence, injustice and arrogance among
our leaders. We MUST change our ways, and some of the polarizations
we're seeing along the way are signs we are beginning to awaken from
the deep slumber of denial and are moving into the
anger-and-acceptance phases of grieving the old paradigm and opening
to the new. These are extraordinary times!
Update, August 18:
On the eve of hosting our next Monteusueños-Vilcabamba gathering with
George Green, Leonardo Wild, Susan Davis and myself presenting,
Meredith and I recently got back from an extraordinary (and
exhausting) odyssey on three continents. Speaking at the annual IIIHS
conference in Montreal (www.iiihs.org), the Sivananda ashram in
Val-Morin, Quebec, Canada, we then traveled to Europe to present at
the New World Conference in Zurich (note the "orb" in the photograph,
taken during a break during my speech there); and finally at the
European Exopolitics Summit in Barcelona, where over 1000 people and
100 media people attended. The topic of disclosure of UFO/ET contacts
and the (suppressed) potential of free energy were lively topics
during all conferences we participated in. In London, we met with key
activist environmentalists at Humanitad, a non-profit group dedicated
to creating a sustainable future, who just won a United Nations award
for their efforts to help fulfill the U.N.'s Millennium Development
Goals. We are planning future projects for Ecuador such as
reforestation and energy innovation. In a couple of months, I will be
posting a more detailed account of this Grand Tour, including some
thoughts and feelings on the quality of the unusual outside-the-box
information presented--what weight should we put on verifiable versus
non-verifiable information? Basically, how do we know what we know
and what DO we really know?
The Europe tour began with a return to the Matterhorn in Switzerland,
the first time I got to see it since I climbed to the top 47 years
ago! It looks every bit as imposing as it had then, and I sometimes
wonder how I could have done it. Ah, to be young again...we also
toured the beauty of West Cork, Ireland, land of my heritage and new
citizenship as well. I even got to see a castle built by and occupied
by the O'Leary clan for the past 500 years now it's for sale...but
definitely a fixer-upper. More to come in a later posting....

Montesueños is now
open for Bed & Breakfast and weekly group rentals of our guest house!
Room rates at Montesueños are generally $25 per person per night for double occupancy, $35 per person for singles.
With several successful conferences on transformational issues now under
our belts, over the coming year or so, we will be scheduling more
conferences and workshops every few months, and most of the
in-between-times will be open for our B&B service. We are now
offering a new group program in which we rent the entire Doves Nest
guest house for $1500 a week. Growing in popularity, this program
gives groups traveling together an opportunity to really relax
privately in a beautiful view setting with four bedrooms, each with a
private bath, the full use of a modern kitchen, Internet connections
and lots of gardens and patios. It's best to make your reservation
early so that you can have the run of the whole house at a time of
your own choosing.
We regret we don't take credit cards or personal/traveler's checks,
and ask for payments for accomodations in dollars in advance.
Each room is artistically unique and has a private bath in a comfortable, quiet garden and/or view setting. Breakfast, Internet connections, and the use of kitchen facilities are included. Write us at firstname.lastname@example.org for reservations and further questions.

Fall 2009 special at the Montesueños B&B, stay six nights,
spend the seventh night free!
Also, the price of weekly group stays
at our entire guest house have been reduced by 33%.
Starting September 1, 2009, and until further notice, we will be
encouraging one-week stays or longer, and so we are offering the
seventh (and fourteenth, etc.) night of any stay here for free. Also,
we are reducing our group special for the rental of the entire Doves
Nest guest house from $1500 per week to $1000 per week. With four to
five bedrooms with private baths, full use of a modern kitchen and
Internet connections, this would be the perfect retreat for groups or
families of 4 to 10. Please write us at email@example.com to reserve your space.
