Stuart Grace Greene is a biophysicist living and working in the San Francisco Bay Area. Originally trained in physics, his passion has always been the exploration of human consciousness. In the 1970s, before the fusion of science and spirituality became popular in our culture, Stuart lived and trained in a Zen Buddhist community - believing that the study of science and the distillation of the spirit were convergent paths towards the same essential unity.  Stuart also ran a school where he taught an in-depth program of "Visionary Healing" combining subtle manual therapies with biological, bioenergetic, and psycho-spiritual healing work.

 

After years of exploring subtle energy phenomena, Stuart discovered a similarly subtle level of biology in the research of Antoine Béchamp, Günther Enderlein, Royal Rife, and others. He was inspired by these great scientists, but mindful of the fact that their theories (which reached as far back as the mid-1800s) needed to be revised in light of modern understanding of molecular, cellular, genetic, and evolutionary biology. The resulting synthesis of ideas forms the core of the new science of health called EcoBiotics.

Juliet Carter
Juliet Carter, international presenter and author of The Template & Worldbridger, will be covering material ranging from the healing of the fundamental Human condition to the realignment of the cosmogenic order of the solar system. The Template is a holonomic model of transcendence that uncovers the dynamics of creation in intelligent and digestible terms as it bridges the geometric signal of light, Human bio-circuitry, the endocrine system, DNA restoration and the morphogenetic field to reveal the implicate order of manifest existence and the fractal nature of Human consciousness within the holography of the Universe. Ultimately the Template is a solution based system that will resurrect the original Human blueprint prior to our genetic modification. The Template Model answers our concerns about the present systemic failure of Earths governing systems that have led to the obvious path of terminal decline we now experience and offers an astounding, grounded and provable model to transcend this fear-based paradigm. The Template is a dynamic interactive system that reinstates humanities resonance with the harmonic geometries of light, returning us and our planet to the holistic space/time continuum.
