Janet's style of writing is heart-opening, full of emotion and exhibits a level of honesty rarely achieved by most yet desired by all. Janet and her husband, Sasha, love one another deeply, passionately, completely, a level envied by most yet achievable if that's truly your heart's desire.

C. CERTIFIED EXISTENTIAL PRACTITIONER: Relate existential philosophy to personal and interpersonal counseling. Learn to help clients reflect upon their being-in-the-world in terms of the subjective/objective and universal/individual continua (bipolar personality theory) and in terms of field theory, centering, and the hierarchy of levels of consciousness derived from phenomenological reduction. Help clients live from the existential ideals derived from field theory and reflection, constitution responsibility, self-disclosure, negation, anxiety and pain, finitude, non-being and death, reflection and epoche, inwardness, subjectivity and self-reliance, uniqueness and individuality, eternity and unity consciousness, freedom from guilt, affirmation of life, commitment and cathexis, reality, encounter and love, flexibility and adaptability, the flowing existential moment and futurity, growth and self-transcendence, and polarity, dialectic and contradiction.

In this program, you learn to clearnly communicate the evidence and facilitate students' creation of a new paradigm unfettered by the"godspell", the yearning for the return of our overlords.
This year catch the Lessins on Penn and Teller on Showtime in an episode called Yoga, Tantric Sex, etc. that highlights the New Age: http://www.sho.com/site/ptbs/topics.do?topic=yoga. With tongue in cheek this show attempts to make fun of everything, but in my humble opinion the hosts end up looking the most strange. Donít Penn and Teller like anything? Weíre not sure if theyíre serious or not but we decided to meet them somewhere in Oz.
Sasha and I enjoyed being on the show and despite it all Sasha got off a nice two to three minute blurb without interruptions or editing. I loved it! I think he did an excellent job, was brilliant, articulate and looked quite handsome as well. Sometimes thatís about all we can hope for is a good camera angle when we agree to these shows and the footage we shoot falls prey to clever editors. Why do we do these shows? Well because we realize some of the audience out thereís rather sophisticated and they "get it". A light bulb goes off, and soon theyíre searching the net for more! We love providing the catalyst for people waking up.
The showís going to repeat for the next six months, but unfortunately most of the air dates are late at night. Hereís Penn and Tellerís web site where you can get the full schedule: http://www.sho.com/site/ptbs/schedule.do If you've missed the show, be sure to catch us on Penn and Teller's annual composite DVD.
August 12, 2004 take the time and focus on what you love, what gives you joy and bliss. Every August 12th Mother Earthís biorhythms align and she experiences a huge orgasm. With the Earth at her most open itís truly a magical time when we can join Gaia in her ecstatic state, activate the hundredth monkey phenomena. United in orgasm we humans can affect the morphogenic field with positive affirmations and return to the Conscious Timeline of Love and Light away from Big Brotherís New World Order. Itís simply a matter of focus and intention. Make love, enjoy your orgasm (whatever that means to you, as long as it gets you high and happy on life). Enjoy our simultaneous orgasms we give one another wherever we are in whatever way that turns you on. If you're not comfortable with sexuality, activate your own ideosyncratic epiphany that day, all day. Join us in sacred ritual, meditation, prayer, dance, song on August 12 and create magic, shift reality, turn to a world of love, light, peace, freedom, happiness and win for all.
