To get an idea what it’s all about, here is the agenda from the April 2016 Subtle Energy Retreat:

Science, Soul & Synergy

Friday April 22nd

Registration and Breakfast 7:30-9:00

SI Exif8:00-9:00 Labyrinth Open Start your morning with an exquisite moving meditation! Blue Sky Ranch’s labyrinth is located on an energetic power spot that was once sacred to the native Kumeyaay tribe. A labyrinth is a sacred geometrical symbol with a single path leading to a center point. It is not a maze because there is only one path. Its unique pattern is designed to shift awareness from left brain to right brain as you walk, inducing altered states of consciousness. It allows those who enter to experience other ways of “seeing.” The center point is the place of power. In a most basic sense, the labyrinth represents the spiritual journey; that of venturing to the center of your innermost being and then returning to the world with a broader sense of who you are. It is a metaphor for life’s journey. Inherent within the design of the labyrinth is its archetypical power, dating back some 3,000 to 4,000 years.

9:00-9:30 Opening Ceremony with Cristina Smith  Author, healer and medical intuitive, Cristina Smith is a member of the Biofield Viewer™ U.S. research team.

9:30-10:00 Augmented Subtle Energy- Aeron Goldheart, CHt- Discover how to empower yourself by directing your subtle energy field consciously with intention and amplification! Find out how to become in-powered to direct and manage your multi-dimensional nature by being fueled with subtle energy also known as the torsion field, prana, chi, ether, life force, etc.

Just like the gas we use in our cars, subtle energy has neither agenda nor any power over us. We, as the drivers of our human vehicles, already hold the responsibility and ability to manage and direct subtle energy in our holistic mental, emotional, spiritual and physical realities in collaboration with our God-given self healing system. Some amplified subtle energies are best received when laying down, the same state in which we may dream, pray and meditate in. These are also the same subtle energies that living beings must have to exist – including all plants and animals. Thus, by merging a full spectrum of balanced coherent subtle energy frequencies into our biofield, we can integrate to support our immune systems for sustained holistic wellness.

Aeron GoldheartAeron is the global developer and distributor of Tesla Energy Lights, a recognized multi-dimensional subtle energy activation system for increasing one’s personal vital energy. He measures and reports scientific data from studies and survey responses as well as teaches progressive protocols for technical, medical and academic audiences to fuel and manifest one’s intentions that include, the emotional, mental and physical in relationships, financial, travel, mission, and wellness.

A certified Hyno-therapist for the last 20 years, Aeron’s background includes 35 years of corporate communications expertise as a media producer in video, photo, graphics, TV and print. He captures objective and subjective data in studies, evaluations in the field and clinic applications. He has documented practitioners, physicists (including Dr. Claude Swanson), and users evidence currently in over 100 videos. He supports a global network of Lights owners, educators and volunteers by guiding users to support their own mental, emotional and physical stress reduction while contributing to human evolution as a result of absorbing Tesla Energy Lights field of high frequencies resonances.

Aeron’s purpose for being on this planet is to support global consciousness and one’s authentic heart on our evolutionary path. Therefore, he is committed to giving back and “paying it forward” for example (through A.C.T.S. Resource Center of Denver), directly benefiting our homeless in the US and globally assisting African children through, a dedicated non-profit 501(c)(3) group of volunteers building paramedic clinics in Arusha, Tanzania Africa. These agencies are helping less fortunate people not only survive, but thrive by supporting their education, dignity, love and consciousness with the help of Tesla Energy Lights soft high frequency energies. Aeron’s websites are and He will be demonstrating his Tesla Energy Lights for all to experience during the Retreat.

1:30-2:30 The Eternal Gift: The Animal’s Perspective on Life and Death- Lauren McCall This is an introduction to how animals view the end of life’s cycle and life after death. An internationally known animal communicator, Lauren discusses experiences that animals have related to her about the transition process, leaving loved ones behind, the purpose of their life’s journey, and reincarnation. This workshop is based on the animals’ point of view and includes a number of illuminating telepathic conversations that Lauren has had with companion animals over a period of many years. While not intended to focus on grief and loss, participants should benefit from a clear understanding of where animals believe they go when they pass on, and that the love connection between us remains very much alive after death. Though spiritual in nature, the workshop is not based on any religious belief, but rather the animals’ point of view. This topic is of interest to anyone who wants to learn more about animals, or perhaps has lost a beloved companion.

Come and learn more about the fascinating insights that animals can share with us!

3:30-5:00 The Science of the Soul- Dr. Claude Swanson

Claude SwansonDr. Claude Swanson was educated as a physicist at MIT and Princeton University. During those years he worked at the MIT Science Teaching Center, Brookhaven National Laboratory and a Virginia cyclotron in the summer. At Princeton he received the National Science Foundation Fellowship and Putnam Fellowship. His Ph.D. thesis at Princeton was done in the “Gravity Group,” which focuses on experimental cosmology and astronomy, and was headed by Dr. Robert Dicke. His thesis advisor was Prof. David Wilkinson, who later became chairman of the physics department.

Swanson conducted postgraduate work at Princeton and Cornell Universities on the design of superconducting plasma containment vessels for fusion energy systems. He then began work for Aeronautical Research Associates of Princeton, a consulting company, and later formed his own consulting company which carried out studies in applied physics for commercial and governmental agencies, including DuPont, United Technologies, the U.S. Army and Navy, DARPA and the CIA, among many others.

For the last fifteen years, interspersed with his conventional professional career in applied physics, Dr. Swanson has pursued investigations into “unconventional physics.” His principal interest has been unified field theory, the so-called “Theory of Everything” which could explain the universe at the deepest possible level. This has led him to investigate many aspects of the paranormal, which appear to be completely real phenomena which violate our present science. Paranormal phenomena, which have now been proven in the laboratory in many cases, offer a window into the deeper universe, the mysteries of consciousness, and unlock new forces and principles which conventional science has only begun to glimpse. He is the author of The Synchronized Universe and Life Force, The Scientific Basis: Breakthrough Physics of Energy Medicine, Healing, Chi and Quantum Consciousness

5:30-6:45 Reception  

7:00- 7:30 The Moonlight Collector with Richard and Monica Chapin – Discover the power of moonlight and starlight on the human body and all terrestrial life here on Earth. We have been concentrating the moon for over ten years and beaming it on thousands of people and objects from crystals to seeds. We have many a story of it’s forgotten influence on our lives. In our high tech, artificially lite society, millions of people have lost touch with the magical power of the natural lights from our sky. Moonlight can re balance your body’s rhythms and in doing so ward off many illnesses or reverse them. Concentrating it can help us much quicker. It is ancient wisdom and technology brought back to our fast paced modern times. When we were in Egypt we found hieroglyphics that displayed curative formulas being mixed in bowls and presented to moonlight and starlight to be the catalyst. A lost art but hopefully not for long.

They also will be presenting The Moonlight Collector’s concentrated light to all that sign up before the talk. With the help of good weather our retreat people will be able to experience a few minutes of concentrated moonlight for themselves. We have been told that 5 minutes in a full moon translates to an hour of meditation in your brain. Very relaxing. Though you can run it by remote control, Richard and Monica will be demonstrating it so people can just sit one at a time and enjoy.

ChapinsRichard Chapin, a graduate of University of Arizona, went on to start a family business that is still running in Tucson after 40 years. This enabled him to pursue his true passions. In 1980, with the help of Dr. Patrick Flanagan, he built an exact, smaller replica of the great pyramid and created one of Tucson’s first health food restaurants. He went on in 1984 to create Sci-Expo a traveling interactive science museum. In 2004 a friend dying of cancer asked him to create something that would help heal people. After much studying and true ancient inspiration, the Interstellar Light Collector was born. Today we have the portable version, The Moonlight Collector available for that purpose.

Monica Chapin has spent her life helping people. After attending Hunter in 1973 she helped found a 450 people alternative community in Seattle. She and Richard have been married/working together for over 30 years. The website is

7:45-9:00 Plant Music Concert with Teresa Helgeson, Pixie and Blue Sky Ranch This extraordinary elevating Earth Day event of plants playing music in concert is unlike anything you have experienced! Join Teresa Helgeson and Pixie the prayer plant, as they orchestrate some of the indigenous Blue Sky Ranch plants and others who have been taught to reveal their songs.This technology was born out of the eco-spiritual community in Italy, called Damanhur. It is a biofeedback system that detects EMF and then translates it into sound using a MIDI synthesizer. A small red alligator clip connects to one of the plant’s leaves. Another “grounding” cord is wedged into the soil, at the plant’s roots. Both cords connect to the biofeedback machine, which is more typically used to measure changes in the body, such as heart rate, via electrical sensors. Today, that machine is synched with a synthesizer, which translates the plant’s energy levels, as measured through biofeedback, into audible tones, which are then played through speakers, giving plants a voice that we can hear.

10:00-11:00  Crystal Energizers: A Simple Method to Protect Your Biofield from Electro-Smog and Digital Fog– Lianne and Joseph Downey Like the proverbial frog in the pot, we have grown so accustomed to the human-energy-sucking influence of our beloved electronic devices that most people no longer remember what it feels like to have their vital energies at full power, all day long. Victimized by our own cleverness, few are aware of how drastically our energy fields are disrupted by these devices, which can cause chronic fatigue, headaches, nausea, lethargy, loss of immunity, and foggy thinking. Thankfully, we have a simple, elegant solution for you.

In 2004, Joseph and Lianne Downey followed an inspirational lead to begin their experiments with sparkling lead crystals. Using applied kinesiology and knowledge of the human biofield, they developed their Crystal Energizer Method for both correcting and protecting against deleterious energetic influences.

Your body’s energy system was designed to interact with the earth’s energetic patterns. To date, human technology runs counter to those patterns. Until device designers learn biofield science, we have to improvise to keep our bodies tracking in healthy harmony with the earth while still enjoying our cell phones.

Joseph and Lianne will teach and demonstrate the proper use of beautiful lead crystals and earth-grown geodes to recover your full energetic function. They will also demonstrate why simply placing a crystal near your electronic nemesis multiplies its harmful effects. By correctly applying their Crystal Energizer Method, you will once again feel energized from sun to sun—even while sitting in front of your computer.

Lianne and Joseph Downey 15Joseph and Lianne Downey own Jolibro, a human energy research and publishing company. Together, they have spent a combined 70 years studying and teaching the interdimensional science of the extended human biofield. They are certified by the Biofield Tuning Institute, graduates of advanced courses in Eden Energy Medicine, and authors of both fiction and non-fiction titles. With all the excess energy they’ve gained from their discoveries, they like to dance, paint, cook, write fantasy, and play music together. Lianne blogs at

11:00-12:00 Interactive Reality Creation in Our Shared Love Hologram- Melissa Joy Jonsson Truly, what is reality? We can never really know definitively what reality is.

2:30-3:30 Surrender to Your Spiritual Power through the Feminine Principle- Dr. Richard Jelusich We have collectively entered the Golden Age of Inner Transformation and the Sacred Feminine (Heart). Now we are wise to employ those tools of the heart to truly represent what is called the “True Self” of our spiritual nature.

95% of all communication is not verbal nor physical: it is the energy of consciousness itself. And as we arise in the truth of our spiritual being, that quality within us cannot be quantified, yet radiates out to all levels of our karmas: familial, parental, social, and so on. We will take a look at how this works and how the awakening of our spiritual awareness affects all creation and that continued awakening orients our minds towards that which is most loving and noble.The Science of today is an externalization of our co-creative collective collaboration, as spirits, to reveal this simple truth to our minds that we might grasp the truth of our luminous nature.

Paramahansa Yogananda said that we cannot be any closer to God than we already are, but we can work to reveal the sublime beauty of that which already exists within us.  Enjoy some collective heart-centered time together as we discuss science, philosophy and spirituality, as well as simple tools and exercises to help reveal the pure nature that we already possesRichard Jelusich as.

7:30-9:00 Sacred Geometry and Geometric Cosmology- Jonathan Quintin

Quintin image Belize

My interest in sacred geometry stems from my childhood fascination and adoration at the intrinsic order and exquisite beauty of natural forms, particularly things like pine cones, seashells, flower patterns etc.

I was born and raised in New Zealand and was fortunate to enjoy the extraordinary natural beauty in abundance. A misfit at school, I would take every opportunity to escape the classroom and wander the wilderness (the school was next to a mountain range). The great outdoors was my classroom and the wisdom of nature my teacher.

Jonathan QuintinAt an early age I began travelling extensively and lived in different countries around the world. I was especially fascinated by ancient civilizations and their incredible structures such as pyramids, temples, monuments and such that were designed to mirror aspects of universal order.

I figured that if the architects of these amazing structures placed so much importance in geometric cosmolgy it was worth investigating. The rest is history. I have spent over 30 years in the full-time study and artistic expression of sacred geometry, or specifically geometric cosmology. The purpose of my work as a cosmologist and multimedia artist is to demonstrate the profound order that pervades the universe. The shapes, forms and patterns derived from uniform divisions of the circle and sphere are tools that can help attune our consciousness to the harmony of universal order.

The most dynamic element for this is the golden ratio, which is a universal principle that guides the dance of energy and matter into limitless states ofQuintin image 3 manifestation. It is the golden thread that weaves its way through the tapestry of creation uniting diverse and contrasting elements into a harmonious whole.

Our physical selves are organized upon this principle. Our consciousness is naturally attracted to the golden ratio. We are a fractal representation of the universal model. We contain all the information of the universe within us; in a similar way to how a drop in the ocean contains the essence of the entire ocean.The golden ratio can be found on every level of existence. It is a master key that can open us to a deeper understanding of who we are and where we fit into the greater scheme of things. It is a portal that can open us to states of higher consciousness and timeless truths.

Join me for an incredible journey to universal beauty!

One of them is making sure you are feeding all of your different facets. Discover some practical ways to make sure you are accessing all the subtle energy available to you in the powerful talk.


2:30-4:00 Open Space with Denise Lewis Premschak Often called the “unconference” piece of a conference, Open Space is participant driven with an agenda created on the spot — topics will ensue from the experiences we have had at the 2016 Subtle Energy Retreat.

Everyone plays:
1. Either initiate or join a dialog topic (participants self-select into small groups).
2. Claim this time and space to speak your truth and deepen your learning and understanding!
3. Then, back in the unified circle of participants, share the juicy, perhaps new, perspectives that emerged.

Open Space is a daring and marvelous exploration of the vastness and the urgency of personal and organizational transformation. For us, it will be a way to coalesce the energy and resonance we have created here and give it a vehicle through which to continue. Our experienced moderator will guide us in this powerful process.
