Offerings from Practitioners:
Gordon Kindlon: Master of Ceremonies
Gordon McEwan Kindlon was born in Charleston, SC, in 1971, and grew up in Albany, New York. A natural doodler, and recipient of University of Illinois’ highest honors and BFA in 1993, Gordon did not plan a career as an artist. Instead, he worked around the world for the United Nations in conflict zones, fell in love in Afghanistan, opened a vegan cafe in Brooklyn, and made a baby. The break of that partnership, along with the bright calling of their child, led to both crisis and chrysalis. Gordon joined forces with PermaJam in 2015, and emerged on the street as UNLOK soon thereafter. Gordon and Stefanie met, like a few other amazing couples they know, at PermaJam 2016. Gordon is writing the book that explains it all, from encounters with Iraqi freedom fighters to cocktails with Hunter Thompson, to NYC watertower street art prayers, and arrests as UNLOK The Rubberstamp Bandit, UNLOK THIS BOOK weaves a riotous and epic yarn, calling out the truths of our times, and shining light on the work unfolding for all of us, now, in this most fertile lattice of honest and Earth-minded community.

Zahira & Fernando Ortega: Thetahealing, Wind Meditation
Thetahealing technique is a healing method, a meditation technique, and a spiritual philosophy with the purpose of getting closer to our own inner wisdom, inner truth and to all that is. It is a method for the mind, body and spirit that allows us to clear limiting beliefs and live life with positive thoughts, developing virtues in all that we do. Through meditation and prayer, and by engaging your own intuitive abilities, we believe that by changing your brain wave cycle to include the “Theta” state, you can watch the Creator of All That Is create instantaneous physical and emotional wellbeing. Through wind chimes and our words, we guide listeners to a meditative state where they will be able to experience the energy of all that is.
Zahira’s personal experience with trauma brought her to the Thetahealing® technique, of which she now serves as a practitioner and spiritual coach. Her purpose is to guide and help others attain their inner wisdom, and to create the life that they always desired and dreamt of. She and her husband Fernando also do work to help their community reach inner peace and happiness. Fernando grew up in the border town of Tijuana in Mexico, ambivalent to religious and spiritual matters, until a trip to the Mexican desert changed the way he saw the world completely. Since then, many teachers have helped increase his awareness of life and its possibilities; how we are capable of affecting influence on the world around us to create the reality we want to live. Together, Zahira and Fernando have formed a video production company, Faro Films. They now live in New York with their two children, Elise and Leonardo.
