It creates a vital connection between the planet and the human species.
It creates a sense of responsibility at the personal level, which contributes to better health on a physical, emotional and spiritual level.

Understanding the Modern Grid and the how to Reduce Dependence on it
The modern system - economy, government, and culture - has developed into a massive control grid that seeks to dominate almost every aspect of your life. It does this first and foremost through capturing your mind - teaching you how to think - so that you are unable to contemplate a life outside of the constraints that the system has set for you. This is the ultimate form of slavery - slavery over the mind. But it is one that is agreed to by its subjects, even if out of ignorance. To seek true freedom requires opening your eyes and seeing reality for what it truly is, breaking out of the boxes that have developed in your mind, and evaluating how you can work around the constraints that have been set for the progress and prosperity of you and your family. It is essential that you understand how our current system works so you can properly assess your own situation and make wise decisions about how to prepare for the future. Join us for a challenging and eye-opening presentation that is sure to make you re-think your paradigm.
