Pachamama is usually translated as Mother Earth, but a more literal translation would be “World Mother”. In Inca mythology, Pachamama is an ever-present and independent deity who has her own self-sufficient and creative power to sustain life on this earth. This video takes you on a trip around the world showing breath taking imagery of our world, also known as “Pachamama”. Filmed by- Karim Iliya; edited by – Amanda Beenen.
“Sirius” from Emmy Award winning director Amardeep Kaleka (“Neverending Light”), producer J.D Seraphine and narrated by actor Thomas Jane (“Hung”) will have a gala celebrity premiere on April 22 in Hollywood followed by a limited national theatrical release on April 24. The explosive documentary deals with the subject of UFO disclosure and clean energy. “Sirius” was also one of the most successful crowd funding initiatives ever produced. The film includes official witnesses to the UFO secrecy, explains the connection to Free Energy and provides the vision of Contact with ET Civilizations as witnessed by the CE-5 contact teams. Never before has this wealth of information and footage been shown to the public. “This really is the greatest story never told” says Dr. Greer, “Once people understand that classified projects have figured out how UFO’s operate, they will realize we no longer need oil, coal and nuclear power. This is the truth that has driven the secrecy.”
According to Thomas Jane, “The Sirius documentary is a powerful and important film that I encourage everyone to watch with an open mind.” “Given the possibility that there was something profound to explore here – something that could potentially open minds to new realms and new possibilities – we seized the opportunity to take on this project. For every story we told, we found hundreds of others. Our goal is to initiate our audience on the same journey – to open their minds and inspire them to search – and freely consider that there is more in this world than we may ever know” adds director Kalek.
The Disclosure Project is a research project working to fully disclose the facts about UFOs, extraterrestrial intelligence, and classified advanced energy and propulsion systems. Steven M. Greer, MD is Founder of The Disclosure Project, The Center for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence (CSETI) and The Orion Project. Father of the Disclosure movement, he presided over the groundbreaking National Press Club Disclosure Event in May, 2001. Over one billion people heard of the press conference through the original webcast and on subsequent media coverage on BBC, CNN, CNN Worldwide, Voice of America, Pravda, Chinese media, and media outlets throughout Latin America. The webcast had 250,000 people waiting online- the largest webcast in the history of the National Press Club at that time. A lifetime member of Alpha Omega Alpha, the nation’s most prestigious medical honor society, Dr. Greer has now retired as an emergency physician to work with CSETI, The Disclosure Project and The Orion Project. During part of his career, he was chairman of the Department of Emergency Medicine at Caldwell Memorial Hospital in North Carolina. He is the author of four insightful books and multiple DVDs on the UFO/ET subject. He teaches groups throughout the world how to make peaceful contact with extraterrestrial civilizations, and continues to research bringing truly alternative energy sources out to the public. Dr. Greer has studied the Sanskrit Vedas extensively and has been teaching mantra meditation for over 30 years. He has also been a part of the films “Ancient Aliens” and “Thrive.” Dr. Greer has been seen and heard by millions world-wide on CBS, the BBC, The Discovery Channel, the History channel and through many other news sources.

What do trees know that we don’t? 13-year-old inventor Aidan realized that trees use a mathematical formula to gather sunlight in crowded forests. Then he wondered why we don’t collect solar energy in the same way.

On a Sunday afternoon in September I got a call from the World Harmony Run office in New York. They told me that one of our members had vanished in the Swiss Alps. They told me that Nabik Dan Hunt, 35, and two friends paraglided down from a high mountain called the Jungrau. The two friends landed safely but Nabik failed to arrive at the agreed landing site. The Jungfrau is one of the highest mountains in the Alps, with a dramatic drop in altitude of 3,000 m from the summit to the Lauterbrunnen Valley below. Later, I contacted Nabik’s mother who sent me an SMS that her son had flown down the Jungfrau using a “speed wing.” I realized immediately that this could be quite serious, and I started looking around for capable people to search in that high Alpine region.
I was a rock climber when I was in my teens, but stopped years ago. So I didn’t have any friends I could ask to join me in my search. But Ueli Steck came to mind. He is the top climber in that region of Switzerland. I sent him an SMS and he called me in the morning. As I was confused about “speed-wing” and “wing-suit” he told me, Nabik must have been speed-gliding or paragliding. He was speed flying using a fabric wing to descend from the Jungfrau Joch (11,333 feet ) at speeds of up to 75mph. Steck, who knows the weather and the thermals in that valley very well, said that at the time Nabik started his descent, on Saturday 15th September around 4 PM, conditions were less than ideal. Ueli said that the chances were slim that we would find him alive, but he advised us to search the glacier, as he might have fallen down a crevice right after he started. He said the second possiblity would be the lower part of a glaciated valley.
I left Zurich that morning, arriving at the Lauterbrunnen Police station, at the foot of the Jungfrau and closest to the area where Nabik went missing. Officer Nils Anderegg asked me to register the people coming to help with the search. He said, “We don’t want any more casualties. We have to know who is going where.” Tim Good, who was flying with Nabik, was the first of the helpers. He had already been searching for him for two nights and one day. He accompanied the Swiss rescue team (REGA) and the Swiss Army on helicopters that flew over the glacier until 2:30 am. Tim still looked very energetic. He used the energy of his despair to act very quickly, getting maps and constantly making phone calls to all of Nabik’s friends in the UK, France, Germany and Switzerland.
By noon a group of eight people had gathered outside of the police station. We decided to have three teams of two each to go and scale the glacier. Team “1” left first followed by Team “2” with Tim Good and Simon Egger. Team “3,” comprised of Nadeen Al-Khafaji and Tom Foote left later. In addition there were the four paragliders Valerie, Barry, Lisel and Rich. I quickly realized that among Nabik’s friends were some of the toughest and brightest people you could imagine. I was very touched by the story of Nadeen Al-Khafaji’s grandmother: At 11 pm the night before Nadeen called her and asked her to drive him to Lauterbrunnen, so he could join the search his friend. The night before I had heard from the police that after two days of helicopter flying Nabik’s insurance was exhausted. There was no more money for helicopter searches. On the way to Lauterbrunnen I contacted my boss, who agreed to fund an on going search and rescue operation. So by noon two helicopters were in the air, one was putting a team down with three dogs below the glacier. The other helicopter had been flying for two and a half hours along the glacier using an antenna for detecting mobile devises. Both teams had failed to pick up any sign of him.
When the helicopters came back at 4 PM, eight speed-flyers and paragliders left Jungfrau Joch from the Sphinx (3,571 Meters (11,716 ft) to re-fly the line where Nabik might have gone down. Benny Kälin, who runs “Chill Out Paragliding” in Interlaken, Switzerland, organised a flight from the Jungfrau down to Lauterbrunnen. He called me and said that the team checked the glacier and the crevasses in the high-alpine area. He suggested continuing searching further down in the valley, in the Trimmleten forest. Team “3” came back early from the glacier. Nadeem and Tom, who were supposed to go to the Guggi SAC Hut (2791 m), searching the glacier as they went, were too late to make it back to the return train. But this turned out to be good, as they had a chance to walk in the direction of the Trimmeleten forest and make some observations near the area where Nabik was eventually found.
My friend Felix had already spent 4 hours observing the forested area at the entrance of the Trümmeleten gorge. At 8 PM all the searchers met at the Chalet Rosa, where we were spending the night. We had a very intense 3 ½ hour meeting. After many calls to people who knew the Trimmleten forest that Simon and others made, we all agreed where to search next day: in the Trimmleten Gorge! I had to work the next day, so I was leaving Lauterbrunnen at 11:30 that night. On the way I was talking to Nabik’s father in England and also to his best friend Pedro. When I got back to Zurich at 3 am, I was repeating my parting words to the team: “Day four is a day of hope.”
It has been now three weeks since Nabik was found, and the whole thing is still confusing to me. Why? The same day they found Nabik, I had spent hours preparing myself for the call to his mother telling her he was dead. Although I was still hopeful, I had a lot more time to think since I wasn’t involved in the search any more. And realistically the possibility of finding him alive was reduced each hour he wasn’t found. The number of missing adventure sports enthusiasts still alive after three days of searching is very small. The odds were against him. I couldn’t stop thinking how unimaginably difficult and painful it would be to have to tell a mother that her child has died.
As I was discussing with a friend of the family how to transfer more money for helicopter searches when he got the news. I almost couldn’t believe it, although at the same moment I got an SMS from Nabik’s father: “Found alive, he is waving to them.” This news was so incredible that I first couldn’t believe it. This must be a miracle! Nabik was stranded in inaccessible gorge and was there during the three nights near sub-zero temperatures. And although he saw rescue helicopters that passed over him at least 15 times there was no way they could see him in that narrow and 250 feet deep gorge. Nils Anderegg, the Swiss policemen in Lauterbrunnen couldn’t believe it: “Nabik is very lucky. He is safe. He is healthy – he only hurt his foot.” Nabik was spotted by his friend Nadeem Al-Khafaji and was pulled up with a long-line by a helicopter from Air Glaciers. This was the last puzzle that started almost 70 hours early when Tim Good gave the alarm when Nabik didn’t land in the valley.
Being an athlete myself, I don’t criticise people who take risks. From the time I was ten until age seventeen I spent almost all of all my weekends and all my vacations in the Alps hiking, climbing or skiing. Just two weeks before Nabik got lost, I wanted to do a bike race over three Alpine passes. Even though it was raining heavily in the valley and there was snow on the passes, I wanted to go. I took it very hard, when the organisers cancelled it due to the cold, snow and danger. But on the other hand there are people who love you, and whom you love. So all these people who love Nabik – and there must be many – were suffering an “unimaginable nightmare” for almost 70 hours.
Now it is over! But still I can’t really understand what has happened. How could Dan survive for so many hours in that cold and humid gorge? What was it that drew some of the greatest people I have ever seen to Switzerland to search for him? When it comes to the successful rescue – how much was personal effort and how much was luck or grace? I can just speak for myself. It was the most intense day in my life. But I feel that the fact that Nabik was found has nothing to do with me. I gave what I had, but there must have been a greater force at work. And those who know Nabik better, realize that his spiritual master Sri Chinmoy, whose disciple he is for many years, might have had a say from the other world. Today it is exactly 5 years since Sri Chinmoy passed away.

So many truly remarkable things are happening in our world today across the entire spectrum of human endeavour. But it is easy to lose sight of this fact when we wake each day to news of more outbreaks of war, civil unrest, economic challenges, natural disasters and loss of life counted in many hundreds and thousands. We seem to be living in times of great change and uncertainty, marked by substantial issues at both local and global levels and yet at the same time by amazing advances in science, technology, humanity and the arts.
The vision for the World Festival of the Heart is to explore some of these developments in three program-packed days in Melbourne, Australia, on 9, 10 and 11 November 2012. The Festival will bring together some of the foremost world figures in spirituality, the sciences and the arts, to celebrate their work and achievements in a spirit of oneness, openness and enquiry and to participate in their remarkable creativity. Many forums have highlighted these current developments but the organizers wanted to do something a little bit different . . . they don’t just want to talk about them, they want to experience them in as many ways as possible with the power of the heart. Their aim is to create a program full of activities: workshops, music, dialogue, devotions, performance, concerts, an expo and a grand forum. Their hope is to transcend our everyday concerns for three days and explore new dimensions of living and wellbeing. The program is designed for anyone who has a passion for life, the world and our future. These are the three major themes for the Festival to explore the interplay and convergence of these disciplines:
The Great Mystery: life, consciousness and the universe
The Universal Heart: recognising the oneness in diversity of all life
Creative Living: making right choices for a healthy, happy and harmonious life
Some of the program activities and topics will include:
- “Whole-of-festival” sessions where everyone gets to enjoy the morning in the Plenary Auditorium
- Facilitated discussions where participants and presenters can share their experiences in smaller groups
- Workshops to get more “hands-on” with ideas, issues and materials
- Themes based around “living in the heart”:
- The Great Mystery: life, consciousness and the universe
- The Universal Heart: recognising the oneness in diversity of all life
- Creative Living: making right choices for a healthy, happy and harmonious life
- “Art from the Heart” exhibition of local and international artists
- Music-making, performances and concerts throughout the Festival program — stay tuned for announcements

Stone Age man created a massive network of underground tunnels criss-crossing Europe from Scotland to Turkey, a new book on the ancient superhighways has claimed. German archaeologist Dr Heinrich Kusch said evidence of the tunnels has been found under hundreds of Neolithic settlements all over the continent. In his book – Secrets Of The Underground Door To An Ancient World – he claims the fact that so many have survived after 12,000 years shows that the original tunnel network must have been enormous. ‘In Bavaria in Germany alone we have found 700metres of these underground tunnel networks. In Styria in Austria we have found 350metres,’ he said. ‘Across Europe there were thousands of them – from the north in Scotland down to the Mediterranean. ‘Most are not much larger than big wormholes – just 70cm wide – just wide enough for a person to wriggle along but nothing else. ‘They are interspersed with nooks, at some places it’s larger and there is seating, or storage chambers and rooms. ‘They do not all link up but taken together it is a massive underground network.’ Some experts believe the network was a way of protecting man from predators while others believe that some of the linked tunnels were used like motorways are today, for people to travel safely regardless of wars or violence or even weather above ground. The book notes that chapels were often built by the entrances perhaps because the Church were afraid of the heathen legacy the tunnels might have represented, and wanted to negate their influence.

Of course, there have been other substances going back even farther that have been claimed to cure cancer, such as Dr. Wilhelm Reich’s orgone energy. However, Dr. Burzynski’s treatment has been scrutinized scientifically for decades and, from this video, seems to be quite effective. According to Burzynski’s proponents, an apparent cure for many forms of cancer – peptides called “antineoplastons” – has been known for some 35 years but allegedly has been battled against and suppressed by governmental agencies and medical authorities since that time. The Wikipedia article about Dr. Burzynski’s work asserts, “The clinical efficacy of these treatments has been established in Phase II clinical trials, and is now in Phase III trials.” (Based on a press release from Burzynski’s research institute.) This documentary film is available for free until June 20th 2011, after which time it will be for sale, with the proceeds used to help get FDA approval of his treatment. (This video has broken all viewer records on vimeo.com; it has been watched by 282,000 people in 5 days! – Blog Editor’s Note)
