The Adventures of John Salad

The debut title from young philosopher Tarquin Namaste. Written in a ‘flash’ of seven weeks in late 2013, during an experience that subsequently changed his life and compelled him to write about his journey of spiritual metamorphosis.

Tarquin Namaste is an English writer and musician born in the northern town of Blackburn, located in the county of Lancashire. His home town of Accrington in the borough of Hyndburn and former heart of traditional textile manufacturing, now represents a repressed socio-typical working-class narrative, firmly imprinted into its culture. The end of an era in manufacturing and industry prevalent in the final decades of the twentieth century, left the town forever stripped of tradition and heritage. Now in the new millennium it contends for government subsidies with bordering towns including notably, Burnley and Blackburn. Intrinsic to the northern culture and its ‘left behind’ status, music with its contentious lyrics continues to play an important role. Tarquin subsequently grew up with this inherited wave of musical consciousness. Fascinated with the subliminal messages of modern music, prompted him to study the art form at college. Later as a student at Salford University (Manchester England) he studied music and musical theory. This included research on the principle sociological elements marked by earlier folk traditions of the 1700’s through to modern-day genres.

As a graduate of Salford University (BA Hons) in Popular Musicology he became interested in the Indie culture and a ‘branch off’ known as the post-punk revival. From the latter of these and prominent between the years 2000 and 2006 emerged Bloc Party, The Strokes, Franz Ferdinand, Interpol and Artic Monkeys. These influences led to the formation of his own band Moral Panic (2009 – 2013) and features in the Adventures of John Salad. In recent times Tarquin has gained significant interest in the genre known as frequencies; in particular the advent of 432Hz. “This is where I now see music to be heading within the alternative scenes, and even popular music, (all recorded and processed at 440Hz) which is being converted into this more natural frequency by ‘enlightened’ fans around the world.”

Books that have left an indelible impression upon him are ‘The Celestine Prophecy’ written by James Redfield and ‘Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance,’ the latter also featuring in the Adventures of John Salad. A book written from beginning to end in seven weeks while ‘taken-over’ by the higher forces of sheer illumination.

“With its magnificent magnitude of thought and deep insight, John Salad has opened the sacred door for others to walk through, so that they too can truly know the infinite.

The voice of failings, ignorance and constant periods of doubt and despair are not hidden or glossed over. This dynamic emerges through twists and turns where waves of sublime honesty work powerfully in charting the rhythmic balance of hopelessness and ecstasy that John experiences.

A journey that brings all minds to the one universal whole. A universal place where just being is really living.”

Cunnamulla residents today took the first steps in identifying core community values to create a community owned vision and blueprint for the future.

The meeting follows initial roundtable discussions in March where the Cunnamulla Aboriginal Corporation for Health (CACH), Paroo Shire Council, South West Hospital and Health Service (HHS), Murweh Shire Council and Central and Western Areas Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community Health (CWAATSICH) were given a mandate to progress strategies to improve social and health outcomes for the communities.

image001Annalise Jennings from Dynamic Exchange was brought in to facilitate the meeting based on her wealth of experience in helping communities drive positive change.

“‘Whole of Community Change’ is a philosophy of ownership and self- determination,” she said.

“It’s about the push for change coming from the community who live and work here, rather than being imposed by policy makers from afar.”

Ms Jennings’ work in Cape York has seen the Napranum community shift from welfare dependency to wealth creation.

“In Napranum within two years there was a 60 per cent increase in employment and a 40 per cent increase in community owned infrastructure.”

Ms Jennings said it is all about shifting the conversation from discussing problems to creating possibilities.

“Our communities are not a problem to be solved.”

“They are full of opportunity and potential that we need to collectively recognise and support.”

“Creating a connected community is about respecting our differences and finding our common goals and values.

aj2Ms Jennings said the ‘Whole of Community Change’ framework opens the door for the community to create a vision and to be supported in making it a reality by service providers and policy makers.”

Napranum Aboriginal Community (Queensland, Australia)

napooficialsiteNapranum (meaning meeting place of the people) was the site of Weipa Presbyterian Mission from 1932 to 1965. Before 1932, the original Weipa Mission was situated near Spring Creek on the upper northern reaches of the Embley River. On 1 February 1966, the church handed over control to the Queensland Government and the mission became known as Weipa South settlement. During the late 1960s the name Napranum was increasingly used by the community.

At least twelve traditional owner groups occupied the surrounding lands, however there are families living at Napranum today whose links extend to Mapoon and Weipa from the missionary period.

Lesli Moore Dahlke

But, proudly, she was born and raised in the bright beautiful Golden State. Lesli describes herself as a lucky child of the 50’s greatly loved by her parents. It was a time of innocence, a time when life was as gentle as a warm breeze. It was a time of growing up during the halcyon days. She was raised in the San Fernando Valley, one of the original vast booming post-World War II suburbs of Los Angeles. Lesli grew up in the shadows of tinsel-town’s glamour, its glitter and the glory days of Hollywood. Her father, Del Moore, was a noted and successful television and movie actor. She received a Bachelor of Arts Degree from California State University, Northridge. Her degree was as a practitioner of Television and Film Production. Lesli’s secondary emphasis was on the written word of journalism. As her career began, she pursued a successful career in Television Media Production. Her credits include commercial film production, and numerous areas of television production, including producing live sports programming. Lesli was the Supervising Associate Producer for the award-winning documentary, “The Eisenhower Years,” for The Discovery Channel, as well as for PBS Network programming. She also supervised the production of PBS Telecourses, the front-runner to today’s on-line universities. Lesli headed the production staff that produced the first cable series for the Playboy Channel and various other ventures. She was a long time writer to the former Salem-News.com on-line newspaper as an Environmental Contributor. Lesli now is a contributing writer for The City of Hope and is completing her second book, Every Day Is a Gift. Although her industry experiences were vast, challenging, and never routine, the most personal challenging experiences were yet to come.

Maureen Watson

Maureen is the co-founder of the UK Values Alliance whose vision is to put values at the heart of society. Its formation in January 2013 followed the results from the the 2012 BVC UK National Values Assessment that showed a large disparity between the Personal values of people in the UK and those they saw in the UK culture. She believes awareness helps us make conscious changes in our lives, for example to live and work based on our values. She sees developing awareness as key to giving us these choices and, being so fundamental, chose this as her contribution to ‘A World Book of Values’. Underlying developing awareness is,
for Maureen, meditation. Being introduced to this practice and making it a regular part of her life led to her career change from industrial chemist to financial services advisor and then to her becoming a personal and business development consultant, incorporating the teaching of Kundalini yoga and mediation.

Danae Johnson

Creating positive change and greater work and life fulfillment for both individual leaders and whole organizations is my focus. I have witnessed the most significant shifts when leaders make time to expand their level of awareness, their impact on others, and focus on their strengths, therefore realizing their unique and powerful potential. As the principal of Thinking Partners and a senior associate with a select group of boutique consulting firms, the clients I work with achieve results and change through one-on-one coaching, customized leadership development, values assessments and organizational culture re-engineering.

A Certified Executive Coach (CEC), a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) and a Canadian Human Resource Professional (CHRP), I bring over 20 years experience in progressive people practices, leadership development, organizational culture design and executive coaching. Prior to starting Thinking Partners I worked with Intrawest Corporation, a world leader in resort operations and real estate development with 25,000 employees and volunteers worldwide as a Vice President of People Development. Within my private practice, I have coached business leaders in both the public and private sectors and designed and facilitated multiple leadership development and coaching skills workshops for leaders at all levels.

The launch broadcast program from The Oneness Foundation featuring Founder Lesli Moore Dahlke.

The Oneness Foundation is a Community-Based Foundation
(Dedicated to the global community)

Focusing on Veteran Outreach

Veterans, Families and their Communities

During the reintegration back into society, The Oneness Foundation encourages empowerment to those in-service within their own towns, cities, communities, and “their homes.” It is a community approach.

A listening and hearing approach of humanity, support, and advocacy for those that gave so much, and sacrificed for all of us.

The Oneness Foundation will encourage mentorship programs, local opportunities of employment, educational help, and health care advocacy.

The Oneness Foundation will give a very personal, unique and impassioned voice for many who have never been heard. It is a time for listening. It is a time for healing. It is a time for moving forward.

At a time so critical, The Oneness Foundation, will lend an open and outreached hand of help, caring support through personal experience as the healing process begins, and extend the respect so honored and earned.

This is a time of returning to other-directed behavior.  To caring for our neighbors, as we welcome all members of our communities back into a world that is in need of grace, peace, and a compassionate understanding.

Every member of society is a valued member in the global community of today.

Many “in service” to humanity did not wear the uniform of the military. As part of the global community these many men and women gave unconditionally, sacrificed, and honored their countries.

There were many who served their countries including volunteer nurses, clergy, those who volunteered for service organizations, photojournalists, and all those men and women who served all humanity.

This was endless, immeasurable, and unconditional giving. These brave, dedicated,  proud, and devoted individuals, need a voice, too.

The Oneness Foundation is dedicated to being a strong voice.

March 5, 2015 Gurudev Hamsah Nandatha – In The Presence of Truth

030515March 5, 2015 Gurudev Hamsah Nandatha (fourth appearance) “In The Presence of Truth”

Listen to Program.

Gurudev Hamsah Nandatha – In The Presence of Truth – Discovering the Being Within.

From the deep experience of his own Self-Realization, Gurudev Hamsah Nandatha describes the process of Awakening like a roadmap, allowing anyone to journey through the process of the discovery of the Self. Gurudev Hamsah Nandatha, when he was 16, met his Spiritual Teacher, His Holiness the Lord Hamsah Manarah–Himself initiated by some of the greatest Sages on Earth–and from that time has been progressively prepared to continue His Mission and lead His Spiritual Community. After the Mahasamadhi of his Guru in 1998, Gurudev Hamsah Nandatha retired from a successful career as a health practitioner and created a spiritual community in Canada, at the foothills of the Rockies, where he dedicates himself to the service of humanity, guiding spiritual seekers who come from all parts of the world and all walks of life.

 

In The Presence of Truth – Discovering the Being Within

ghnmainpageIn this book, his first in English, Gurudev Hamsah Nandatha provides the essence of his transformative teaching. In a world of certainties, he states, you have accepted so many things to be true, and yet this is the very cause of your misery. Accept nothing as true except what you yourself experience. Who are you? What is the true purpose of your life? What prevents you from living in a state of absolute balance and inner joy, which is not only attainable by anyone but is your very nature? Gurudev Hamsah Nandatha teaches Universal Spirituality, that all religions have value and that the awakening of our true consciousness is the path of light to evolution, and a higher state of being.
