Conscious Planet: Our Monthly Media Guide
Welcome back! The year started with the first
skirmishes in the presidential campaign: the first Democratic primary results
showed again that ?experts? -- whether pundits, pollsters, or media -- were
wrong in presenting Howard Dean as the undisputed winner of the Democratic
primaries. On the other hand, George Bush expressed his grand but costly vision
of sending men to the moon (and seeming to forget that another president already
had promised this and made it happen) and even to Mars. Speaking of celestial

Back on Earth, Paraview has succeeded in presenting a few interesting books and
authors this month, including one about one of America?s greatest psychics,
The Outer Limits of Edgar
Cayce?s Power, written by his two sons. This is fascinating reading
for those who want to get the inside story about Cayce.
We are proud to welcome two of Paraview?s authors, Yvonne Seng and Jim Garrison
to New York the coming month, where they will be speaking at the
New York Open Center,
the largest holistic learning center in the US. Yvonne Seng, author of
Men in Black Dresses

Middle East?. Jim Garrison, author of
Civilization and the
Transformation of Power and his latest book
Empire will be speaking about ?America as Empire: Global
Leader or Rogue Power?? If you happen to be in New York, don?t miss this
opportunity to visit the Open Center and hear these two thought leaders.
This month we are also presenting an article by publicist Robin Blakely of Livingston
