Healing for the Gulf – an invitation

Posted by Erik on June 16, 2010

First thing Thursday morning I’m headed down to Naples, FL for my dad’s memorial service; the city is on the Gulf coast, but hundreds of miles away from the oil-spill. I’ve been trying to think of something suitable that’s disaster-related to do while I’m down there – beyond trying to drive less (ironically) and donating to groups working on the cleanup, that is – and the only thing I’ve thought of so far is to bring prayers and healing energy.

So, that’s what I’m going to do – my current plan is to be on the shore between 10-11 PM (Eastern) on Friday night, offering said prayers and energy to the gods and spirits of the Gulf area and specifically petitioning Poseidon to give Them His aid. I invite anyone who wants to participate in making this a group healing to jump in during this hour and send your own energy; or, if you have a prayer you would like me to carry, you can post it here or use the Contact form above.

If this strikes you as a worthwhile endeavor, please feel free to spread the word!

Changing of the guard?

Posted by Erik on October 1, 2009

It occurred to me yesterday that we appear to be seeing the beginnings of a shift in global power (if I wanted to be dramatic I could call it “the end of the ‘American Century’ “, although technically it’s more a beginning of a “Developing World Century”), more or less right on schedule.

Music for monkeys!

Posted by Erik on September 2, 2009

Interesting story on NPR this morning:

In an effort to understand how music affects us emotionally, cellist David Teie has written a couple of songs for an audience of tamarin monkeys. The results of the experiment are to be published in the journal Biology Letters.

Bog bodies

Posted by Erik on December 13, 2007

There’s a very interesting article in a recent National Geographic about new technologies being used to investigate bog bodies – the ancient corpses found in peat bogs through much of Northern Europe.
