Planetary Awakening

New Years 2017 at Sivananda Ashram Bahamas 

Carol Fitzpatrick, my wife, was invited to speak at the Unity in Diversity symposium in December – this was our final day at the ashram and a lovely way to cap off the year!

My most favorite New Years to date – an Agnahotra Fire Ceremony by Tantric Priest Krishnan Namboodiri with music by Guara Vani at Sivananda Ashram in the Bahamas – with dancing yogis and yoginis!

A Lightwalker Bio

Carol Fitzpatrick, Garden of One Thousand Buddhas, Montana

My wife asked me to review a bio she had written for submission to a conference and, as usual, I felt it gave a cursory view of what she has done, but fell way short of who she actually is.

“Let me write a bio for you,” I said.

Since she didn’t think my version even closely resembles a bio she could use as a professional submission, I thought it appropriate to share with you what I see. So here it is. – Mark

Who is Carol Fitzpatrick?

She is a Light Ray
from vast dimensions too distant and too near
to adequately reckon with
or hope to understand.

She has come to this reality
born out of a compassionate desire
to help those who have lost their way
in the perplexing quagmire
of this third dimensional dream;

and to bring into being a New Earth,
bursting with promise and Unknowable Splendors.

She has also come to plant
a rarified frequency of light into the planet
which will help propel it and all its denizens
into Unimaginable Grace.

She is a Child of this Grace,
a star being of highest status.
And yet she possesses an undying humility,
so apparent in all that cross her path,
and have come to love her.

Carol has a yearning to serve others and the whole,
and chooses this over her own welfare.
She plays at being human and fearful of life’s mortality,
but has in actuality died ten thousand deaths
and rebirthed as many incarnations,
and knows intrinsically
the undying nature of evolution
and the fluidity of existence.

She is a channel of channels,
a walking breathing Oracle of the cosmos,
here to shed light,
wisdom and clarity
to a dying population –
and to a birthing one!

She has a decided penchant for the Truth,
even though a compromised energy physiology
sometimes allows her to question and behave
as though separate from it.

She comes from a star lineage steeped
in the principle of Unconditional Love;
and her steppings evince a singular quality of Light Quotient
which is uncompromisingly new and fragile to this planet.

She has come to aid us all by acknowledging
and acting out the easiest and most difficult role
ever given a lightwalker:

Being Herself.

Between Mountains and Stars – Mark Torgeson 

Between Mountains & Stars
An exploration of the primal and spiritual aspects of human nature. Listening to the whole album takes one through a sparkling process of self discovery, and a deepening understanding of the relationship between earth and the heavens.

Album Notes
The themes of humankind´s grounding in nature; the continuous search for our place in the cosmos; and the innate pull towards personal evolution predominate this music. Mark´s intent has always been to create an expression which incites the human spirit toward greater wholeness and transformation – a form designed to invoke inner change which mirrors the vast planetary shifts of the new millennium.

The intent of this work is Self Transformation through the use of music and vibrational frequency. At this time of mass Global Shifting, every avenue of shifting one´s frequencies to higher states is called for, and Mark´s activities and music have this mission at its core.

Mark’s first album, Between Mountains and Stars, is the result of closely observing the type of music which works best when people are in states of deep repose. In Mountains Mark merged his love for orchestration with the sonic palette of electronic instruments, creating a synergistic form which sets the stage for the listener to experience states of deep relaxation and activate innate healing abilities.

Archangel Michael Song 

Here is a musical piece commissioned by Archangel Michael featuring the sacred geometry of an isosceles triangle with two sides = 3 and the third side = 5. This equates to a time signature of 3+3+5 = 11/4. Flute by Hayat Bain, piano by Mark Torgeson. Filmed at Archangel Michael’s retreat in Alberta, Lake Louise.
