“A chronicle about an Army veteran who becomes homeless, and follows his dream of hiking and cycling all over North America. Although he is homeless, he gets by with his survival skills and the help of strangers as he raises money for various charities and support groups. His altruistic trek spans over the course of three years and comes to an abrupt stop at his 10,000th mile. From Delaware to California, from Florida to Alaska, follow along to experience this man’s journey of compassion, chaos, supernatural events, deadly situations, loneliness, comic relief, selflessness, betrayal, heartbreak, and humbleness. You will never read a travel story quite like this one!”
This book review from Amazon by Katrina Rachel describes the book well:
“A travelogue written by a U.S. Army veteran struggling with PTSD and bipolar disorder. Finding himself unemployed and homeless, Jake sells all his possessions and decides he will walk across America while raising money for various charities, including St. Jude’s Hospital. Uncomfortable in busy, densely populated areas Jake tries to stick to backroads and small towns. Along the way, he copes with being mistaken for a homeless vagrant, a potential troublemaker, is harassed by police and people who judge only the book’s cover and never look inside. These experiences are balanced with many encounters with kind strangers, as well as followers of his blog who meet up with him, offer him food, drink, care packages, entertainment and respite from the fatigue of the long journey. Skilled in wood craft Jake camps, hunts, fishes and uses his Army training to be as self-sufficient as possible. Even during his darkest days of depression, as he contemplates suicide, his honesty and integrity shine through, and you feel as though you are listening to a dear friend unburdening their heart to you. A remarkable book, by a remarkable man, who has travelled 10,000 miles by bicycle and on foot, across America and is not yet 30 years old. I hope the coming years bring him the health, peace, and happiness he deserves.”

Arthur Haines is a Botanist who founded the Delta Institute of Natural History in Canton, Maine. His passion for practicing and sharing a neoaboriginal lifeway has led him to teaching others about human ecology, the values of foraging, wildcrafting medicine, primitive living skills, and learning how to develop self-reliance and gain a greater understanding of eco-conscientiousness.
Arthur has published major textbooks, has named multiple new species and genera to science, and has helped construct websites that enable people to identify plants throughout the Northeastern U.S.
Helping people learn how to foster awareness, develop connection, better health and self-reliance through an understanding of ancestral and existing indigenous cultures are all aspects of Arthur’s life mission.
“I believe we are at an important crossroads in our existence, one where domestication of the human species has led to an inability for most to nourish, heal, and care for themselves. This process has created profound blindness to the consequences of modern industry and the illnesses associated with nature disconnection. It is critically important to recognize that this point in history.” ~ Arthur Haines
“A New Path is a clear and easily understood presentation of a meaningful and nature-connected future. Be prepared for the paradigm shift, as the world feels different after just the first chapter.” ~ Bremen James, farmer/father/forager http://www.arthurhaines.com/anewpath/
Today’s interview features Shane Tyler Milson of Black Magic Alchemy, a company and philosophy inspired by Shane’s love of foraging mushrooms. Black Magic Alchemy’s premier product is a Chaga mushroom-based Rootbeer Elixir, and all of the Chaga used to create this magical elixir is wild harvested deep in Canadian forests by Shane and his crew. Chaga mushrooms are typically found growing on birch trees and contain powerful immune boosting health benefits. We enthusiastically discuss Chaga and Reishi mushrooms and discuss at length the many reasons one should consider adding them to their diet. We also discuss modern Shamanism and its re-emergence into our daily lives. This interview was magical and inspired from start to finish.
“We sustainably hunt our own wild rare mature Chaga mushrooms in pristine Canadian forests, blessing every birch tree before harvest & taking only a small portion of the mushroom to protect the life force energy of the tree, mushroom and forest.” ~ Shane Tyler Milson

Malcolm has created events and shared the stage with world-renown speakers including David Wolfe and Daniel Vitalis, and is the visionary founder behind The Light Cellar, a health food store and community teaching kitchen located in Alberta, Canada.
Today with so many divergent diets, clashing opinions and research being touted – everything from Vegan to Paleo to Ketogenic – many people are left confused as to what exactly to eat for optimal health.
Malcolm brings what he calls a “Food Scope” approach to intuitive eating, and also discusses some of the optimal superfoods, such as chocolate and medicinal mushrooms, to consider adding to our diets.
We’ll also discuss the importance of gut health in building a strong immune system and healthy brain function.
You can find our more about Malcolm’s approach to health at his website, MalcolmSaunders.com. There, you’ll find an array of topics such Intuitive Eating, Wild Harvesting, and Fermentation.

“The cave you fear to enter
Holds the treasure you seek”
~ Joseph Campbell
Throughout time, human beings have believed the end is near
From the Biblical apocalypse to the Hindu yugas, to the legend of the Hopi blue star Kachina, cultures throughout the world believe a cataclysmic event is looming. Additionally, there is talk of earth-bound comets, climate change, X-class solar flares, super volcano eruptions, killer viruses, nuclear weapons – the list could go on and on.
David Wilcock says “35 different ancient cultures talk about ascension as a spontaneous evolution of the human being to a higher form”. Wilcock also says “Everybody gets what they need out of this event, and the event is some kind of energetic release from the sun”. Lastly regarding each individual’s experience of ascension Wilcock adds, “What you experience is what you invite”.
Might the possibility of a Galactic Superwave affect human consciousness? Scientists from Starburst Research are studying the existence of intense cosmic ray particles that travel from the center of our galaxy. These particles produced abrupt changes to the Earth’s climate when the superwave impacted our solar system around 14,000 years ago. Could this also effect human DNA and consciousness.
Jordan Sather of the popular YouTube channel, Destroying The Illusion https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCMVTRzCXvIbdK0Y1ZxD-BlA speculates on the concept that our solar system is moving through space and heading for an area of the universe that contains a powerful source of energy. This energy may affect the behavior of our Sun. Could the change in the sun be capable of profoundly adjusting human consciousness? A well done speculation merging spirituality and science is achieved in this video.
The Science of Ascension – A Quantum Solar Shift
Here is a gathering of different physicists research in an effort to explain what the heck is going on with our solar system, and what it means for us. https://youtu.be/Ig7fshISKmk
Andrew Martin of http://thelightedones.com/ in a post from July 18, 2017 shares his intuitive feelings on the current ascension energies being quite intense. Andrew’s YouTubes are like the “Ascension Nightly News”, and very worth following. Two quotes from Andrew’s recent post below that might inspire more investigation if they resonate with you.
“When Spirit is calling me away from my comfort zone, life becomes more and more uncomfortable until I say “OK”, surrender, and let it carry me to the next experience”.
“Just like when you have downloaded new operating software and need to reboot your computer, it goes dark for a second as it configures and installs the new info, then it restarts and the light comes back on. Right now we are upgrading our operating systems in a major way”.
Let’s touch on ascension and Earth Changes. Does ascension effect the Earth’s physical reality? As Wilcock states, “What you experience is what you invite”. My opinion is ascension is unique to each individual. To some it is enhanced wisdom and expanded consciousness, and for some apocalyptic. Ascension truly brings to light “What is internal and external are the same”.
Massive changes to the Earth may have occurred historically possibly wiping out much of humanity. Graham Hancock is a pioneer in the archaeology related to this possibility. His material is laid out on the Joe Rogan Experience below.
This new awareness is making people crazy, have you noticed?
Conscious evolution affecting those experiencing ascension energy appears to kick down doors locked by our hearts and minds. This new energy brings our deepest darkness, pain and repressed emotions to light. If we aren’t ready to face those difficulties, they’re going to make themselves apparent whether we’re ready or not. So you might have noticed increased anxieties and fear among the population.
Many aren’t ready for this flash flood of emotion and challenging life situations which leads to resistance of what IS. Andrew Martin quips, “The river doesn’t stop and have a breakdown when it hits a boulder”. Thus, the best way to approaches these turbulent times is to take them as they come.
Individuals choosing to navigate the ascension for their own evolution might find conflict, push back, and skepticism from friends and loved ones. This is because not everyone is ready, aware, or interested in conscious growth. It is essential not to preach at or attempt to fix others who are unwilling.
In a helpful YouTube Destroying The Illusion https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCMVTRzCXvIbdK0Y1ZxD-BlA speaks on
“Tips to Help Bring Someone onto the Awakening Path” https://youtu.be/z5obz0z7rdo
Many individuals claim to consciously feel physical symptoms of ascension, such as headaches, loss of energy, dizziness – there are far too many to mention here and lists abound on the internet. Going to visit with Destroying The Illusion again on this topic.
Epsom Salt baths are a personal favorite for charging up with good energy and relaxing.
Approaching the Ascension
A positive approach to the ascension is to be a Radiant Creator!http://RadiantCreators.com As David Wilcock states, “What you experience is what you invite”. The impeccable Radiant Creator who expresses their purpose, passion, courage and determination will thrive during the ascension. So, is the end near… or is this just the beginning?
