PLEASE NOTE THIS HAS BEEN CHANGED TO A WEEK-LONG CLASS INSTEAD OF 10 DAYS. IT RUNS 9/9-9/15.Escaping Darkness is a class designed to fully understand the forces of darkness and evil that will prevail during the time of the "Red Sky". As Grandfather foretold, the world at the time of the Red Sky will be cast into darkness, a place where there will be no law, order, or peace. The world will be run and controlled by the Warlords, driven by vile darkness, hatred, torture and death. As our world crumbles and our crops, livestock, and very waters of the Earth run out, people will be forced into slavery and cannibalism. Food and water will become a weapon controlled by the Warlords, much like we see today in Africa with millions of people on the brink of starvation. We see the age of the Warlords taking place in Africa now where these leaders will starve little children in the most heinous act of genocide, greed, hatred, and a lust for power. Grandfather said that in these horrific times of war and death the Children of the Earth must escape to the wild places and hide, living like the Ancient Scouts, and never returning to the world of man. Grandfather warned that during these unimaginable times of death, suffering, and anguish that the Warlords are not just powerful men and women but they are also practitioners of darkness. He said that our enemy, those who hunt, kill, enslave and eat other people, are not just physically powerful but in fact they will be Black Shaman. The Children of the Earth will then have to escape an enemy that is not only physically powerful but also spiritually powerful. If you look at these Warlords even today, they are not the classic movie type of Rambo, but rather look totally unremarkable. Yet there is something about these Warlords, not only in the future and now, but also throughout history that is sinister and wrought with the fires of evil. You can see it in their eyes, you can feel it in their presence, and you can instinctively feel that there is more that drives them and their followers than just the physical. This will become your enemy and your enemy will not only hunt you on a physical level, but will also use every dark spiritual means at their command to destroy you and your loved ones. This class is designed to teach you how to escape this new and powerful enemy, and when needs dictate to defeat that enemy. This class will deal with the powers you already possess but directed in a new and vital way, a way that will keep you, your family, and the Children of the Earth safe as you lead them to the sanctuary of wilderness. In essence the wars that come will be an equal balance between that of the flesh and that of the spirit. This class focuses upon the aspects of the Spiritual war and warrior, not only destroying the darkness that will someday stalk you but also the darkness within each of us. I have never attempted to teach the spiritual skills of combat under these dark circumstances before but now is the time, for the darkness is not just on the horizon anymore, it is here, it is now, and it is growing more and more powerful each day, feeding itself on the pain, anguish, starvation, suffering, and death which already has a death grip on the world. I suggest very strongly that you also take the ESCAPE class that Jorge is running to give you a firm foundation on all levels. However it is not a prerequisite, only a suggestion.

Volunteers are a vital part of making each class a success. Having graduates of a class available to answer questions and help out in workshops is of tremendous value to current students, and provides a much larger pool of people they can turn to for assistance. As well, volunteers help to prepare and serve meals, head up the student crews and assist Instructors and Interns in lecture and workshop preparation - all of which are essential when it comes to keeping classes running smoothly. And don't forget, whenever you're not needed as a helper, we encourage you to sit in on the lectures and participate in the exercises and workshops. It's a great way to brush up on your skills, or discover what you may have missed the first time around!
