I am driven to learn everything I can on the subject of highest well-being. I have compiled the work of many enlightened teachers and leaders. Yet I have come to some conclusions of my own that I have not seen others put together. I had all five of my births at home. zI was born in 1960. One of my earliest recollections was seeing my mother cry in our living room as she watched the assassination of JFK on the news. I remember vividly the deaths of Ghandi, Jimmy Hendrix, Janice Joplin, John Lennon. My father was a military man who would stand in our living room talking heatedly about guerrilla warfare, agent orange, and the cold war. I remember wondering why those gorillas were fighting like that.
My mother embraced women's lib with both arms and openly hated my father for his oppressive male dominance in our home. It took some heated battles that could be heard three blocks away, but he finally relinquished his right to rule, which set him on a journey that led to his decision to retire from the military and become a self-funded missionary to 44 countries around the world. My mother refused to forgive and forget and was among the first to jump on the divorce band wagon at a time when it was not an accepted course of action. I guess she was a leader of sorts in a very discontented way.
Meanwhile, in the 3rd grade, I was tested to have an I.Q. of 160. I was placed in a special program for "smart kids" and everyone had great expectations for me. They enrolled me in kindergarten at four years old so I was always the youngest kid in the class. Even though I was the youngest, I was still at the head of the class academically. Being the youngest and the smallest, and female, was not a good combination at that time in history. I was bullied throughout my years at school and was not supported to set far-reaching goals. No female in my family had ever held a job outside the home.
The special program for "smart kids" focused on many world issues at that time during the late 60s. They wanted us to have a big-picture perspective. Many of the female teacher even wore pants. Because of this progressive program I found that academics provided me a happy place. My turbulent home life and the bullying I encountered at school undermined my sense of well-being, yet I always had straight A's throughout my years in school. I received an award in all seven of my classes at the end of my sophomore year. No matter what crazy thing was happening in the world, no matter what negative tailspin my mother was in, no matter how mean kids were at school, I remained constant. I took extra classes before school and after school and in the evening. Soon they called me into the office and said I would be graduating a year early because of the number of extra credits I had earned. I was already a year ahead and now another year ahead. I graduated at 16, and I was lost. I had no idea where to go from there.
When people used to ask me, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" I always said, "I just want to be normal." I never felt normal and didn't even know how to define normal, but I was determined to be "normal." This set me on this path discovering and developing all the information I could find on the topic of "well-being." I first wanted to know what it was, then where it comes from, and then how to get it. I collected everything I could find on the topic and posted it on my many websites in bite sized pieces because it is too much information for most people to absorb all at once. My vision expanded to larger and larger issues from my own personal well-being to my family well-being to well-being for all. I was born in 1960 so I have observed a lot of changes happening around me that have caused me great concern for the well-being of the entire planet. For this reason I have formed the Global Well-Being Think Tank to gather great minds together to share my research and my conclusions to create something entirely new.
Back when I was in high school, they never talked to me about college. They didn't counsel me on career choices. I remember one of my teachers said I should be an engineer and I had never heard that term before. This was 1976. I thought an engineer was someone who drove a train, like the engineers in children's storybooks. I walked away from that conversation completely bewildered why she thought I would be good at that.
Like all the females in my family, I got married at an early age and started having children right away. While I was pregnant with my first child we lived in Escalante, Utah, a town of 400 Mormons. They had an opening for a teaching position and they wanted me to fill it quickly. Their hiring pool was very limited, so they set up a special program with the nearest college to waive my general education classes and put me straight into Elementary Education classes with a remedial reading minor, something that was sorely needed in their little school. I finished that program while I had my first baby in my arms. Utah is open to that sort of thing. I worked as a substitute teacher to fill that opening until I could get my certification. Working in the public school system, I became very disillusioned as I saw so many children being left behind and mistreated by teachers and staff for social and racial issues that the children had no way of comprehending.
I lost interest in the school system entirely, and chose to home school my own children. I moved from Utah to Oregon to continue my education at a Bible College in Portland. Then back to Southern California where I grew up. I was a stay-at-home mom from 1977 to 2020. I h
ad five home births. I have lived through two challenging marriages, but learning and studying remained my happy place. I have always been driven to learn everything I could on the subject of happiness and well-being, for my own benefit at first, and others later in life. I compiled the work of many enlightened teachers and leaders, researchers and innovators. I have come to some conclusions of my own that I have not seen anyone else put together. I have developed a method of coping that keeps me happy and creative most of the time.
Arcologies of Highest Well-Being
Over the years I received what felt to me like a "download" of information that came straight into my mind's eye. I heard words and saw pictures and felt amazing emotions that were more than I could ever describe, though I never stop trying.
I wrote it all in a book, Arcologies of Highest Well-Being, a proposal of sorts and workbooks, videos, and music to support it.
The ultimate goal of this body of work is to gather the conscious community, those who have experienced the paradigm shift, a transformation in their DNA, a total and complete severance from the 3D world. The second goal is to accelerate the evolution of those who have not yet experienced the shift, by hosting events, classes, boot camps, think tanks and retreats.
These efforts are designed to draw the conscious community into one powerful unified purpose like a magnet, to establish the sense of belonging that comes from being part of a tribe as they reach for highest well-being together. Over time I have established two organizations, one non-profit and one for-profit. GlobalWell-Being.org is a non-profit that is in the think tank stages. We who are involved with this organization intend to plan, design, and build the most advanced human habitats in the world, in the poorest places in the world. We call these advanced cities "Arcologies of Highest Well-Being" or "Arc 7" for short. This is the first socio-economic governance system designed and implemented by a woman. Arc 7 pulls everyone up and out of “survival mode” and into the spiritual and financial prosperity of highest well-being that comes through cooperation, collaboration, and community.
Before we can embark on this huge endeavor, we have to gather in hubs to learn the specifics of the plan and implement it in our own lives first. HighestWell-Being.org is a spiritual business offering think tank boot camps to the conscious community and their loved ones. To bring about accelerated human evolution and elevate each individual to their greatest potential, we offer educational programs that support the 7 Elements of Highest Well-Being. This is the for-profit organization that supports the sustainable development of the non-profit.
