Toward spiritual awareness and wisdom from beyond Earth

By Jean Strahlendorf
Special to The PREVIEW

On Feb. 23, Ted Denmark, Ph.D. will address the question: Have the odds recently shifted on finding — or acknowledging discovery — of possible intelligent life in the local universe based on new scientific awareness of exo-planets?

Dr. Denmark is the editor of the second edition of an e-book reissue of what is still probably the most important underground contactee document ever released for publication: “Wendelle Stevens’ Message from the Pleiades, The Contact Notes of Eduard ‘Billy’ Meier.”

Some of the key circumstances in the life of the Swiss farmer from the late ‘70s will be given with regard to the nature of his Pleiadian contactors, particularly regarding their spiritual teachings and stated involvement in Earth pre-history.

The Unitarian Universalist principle of a free and responsible search for truth will naturally incline us to explore a possible look beyond the existing six sources from which our living tradition is currently drawn, eventually towards spiritual awareness and wisdom that may be received from beyond Earth.

Following the service, Denmark will be available for further discussion during our coffee time.

Denmark, currently residing in the California Mother Lode, has lived in Northern California for most of the last 50 years. He attended Rice University for a B.A. (philosophy), studied Jungian psychology in Zurich, Switzerland, and attended graduate school at UC Berkeley, where he received his Ph.D. in education psychology in 1975. He worked at UCB Space Sciences Lab as a design engineer for several decades before becoming a computer software engineer at Autodesk. His interests include organic gardening, solar architecture, astrology, ballroom dancing and a wide array of scientific and esoteric studies. His current retirement career as a writer has been primarily focused on exploring and writing about his contactee experiences over the course of his lifetime.

The Pagosa Unitarian Universalist Fellowship sponsors a children’s spiritual educational program and encourages families with children to please join us for our Sunday service. Our children’s religious programs teach our Unitarian Universalist heritage, ethical living, moral precepts to love your neighbor, work for a better world and to search for truth with an open mind. Arts and crafts projects also are utilized to illustrate these principles.

The service begins at 10:30 a.m. in the Pagosa Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Hall. The address is Unit B-15, Greenbriar Plaza. Turn east on Greenbriar Drive off of North Pagosa Boulevard by the fire station, then left into the back parking lot and look for the big sign. All are welcome.
