Richard created handout-charts combined with a January-December 12-month Mayan/Gregorian calendar in 1989 for his first edition of The Mayan Calendar Guidebook to help teach his first Mayan calendar workshop in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The 1996 edition of The Mayan Calendar Guidebook 4,000+copies sold around the world and had media coverage by the TV show Strange Universe on Canadian television.

As our Universe creates souls nameless, the living people call this form Richard Alan Eagle.
Some of his childhood memories are: being with his father who frequently met with Native American elders for coordinating social services for downtown Minneapolis neighborhoods; being with his grandmother, who built and operated a nursing home, with him witnessing hospice nursing care up-close.
High school: St. Anthony Village, Minnesota, Assistant Editor high school newspaper; President - Concert Choir, awarded 4-star rating at the Minnesota State High School Vocal Competition; Supporting Actor and Lead Actor in school theater .
Colleges: The University of Minnesota, Minneapolis (his grandfather managed the St. Paul campus experimental gardens); ITT Minnesota School Of Business, Minneapolis, Minnesota; and Bemidji State University, Bemidji, Minnesota.
Richard visited Aspen, Colorado for a summer spiritual retreat at the vacation home of Minnesota vitamin store chain owner Bob Roosen on Alta Vista Drive bordering Aspen golf course. While there Richard participated with a group of eleven other people for a whitewater rafting trip on the Colorado River, with all becoming extremely sunburned.
He recalls what happened later that night after the whitewater rafting trip,
"Our sunburned rafting group members are in prayer just before our nightly bible study, when a powerful plasma high-energy field of divine love and joy suddenly materializes, overwhelming us all. After a minute, the bliss energy subsides and someone shouts out that his sunburn is gone. As we all look around we realize all twelve of us with sunburns are healed; we had no trace of the serious red sun-burns. I am still amazed at what happened that night."
For him, that miraculous group healing experience was a major life-changer.
*(This true event of 12 people being instantly healed can be confirmed by contacting Troy Wiseman, CEO of Ecoplanet Bamboo.)
He moved to Aspen, Colorado, for two years, then returns to Minnesota.
In 1984 he gathered his poetry into his first book, Cash Action: The Great American Game.
In 1987, he begins studying The Mayan Factor: Path Beyond Technology by the-late DR. JOSÉ ARGÙELLES.
In 1989. he created his first Mayan Calendar class and with it the first edition of The Mayan Calendar Guidebook, a study-guide with combined Mayan Calendar and Gregorian Calendar that became a yearly publication.
In 1989 Richard and friend Bonita Anderson discover while visiting Blue Mounds State Park in Luverne, Minnesota, a hidden ancient natural rock amphitheater with a special sitting ledge upon which to view the sunrise on the first day of spring and autumn, at the eastern end of an ancient quarter-mile long east-west alignment of blue quartzite rocks.

In 1991, Willard van de Bogart, a close friend of the-late DR. JOSÉ ARGÙELLES, tells Richard that José confided in him, saying, "José said to me, that, of all the people he knew, besides his wife Lloydine, that you have the best understanding of his Mayan calendar research'." Willard presented to Richard one of the first pre-production DREAMSPEL game kits, along with a hand-written note from José with the words, "Keep up the good work."
Richard taught his first Mayan Calendar and DREAMSPELL class in Sedona. The day after the class he had the most powerful spiritual moments of his life while out hiking with a friend hiking in Long Canyon.
"While in prayer at Sedona's main vortex and Native American sacred ceremonial site in Long Canyon called Rachel's Knoll, I have two miraculous events of bliss, peace, and grace:
I am sitting on a high rock ledge perched dangerously above the Long Canyon valley at sunset, when a total silence and peace quiets the entire valley around me. All I can hear is the ringing in my ears, the sounds of my own body.
Suddenly I notice far-off in the valley below bushes moving from a strong gust of wind that then flows towards me. The wind rises-up the knoll to blow right thru me, deep into my heart and soul, extremely powerful spiritual energies, leaving me in a state of perfect peace, divine love and grace.
After a minute the birds begin to sing again and bugs reappear, as I sit there dazed in bliss.
After a few minutes a total silence and peace quiets the entire valley again.
Then I see another gust of wind flowing through bushes in the valley that then rises-up the knoll to blow right thru me again but deeper into my soul, with triple-strength power, filling me completely with perfect peace, divine love and grace. I sit there dazed in bliss and unable to move, until it became dark and I saw stars in the sky so I head back-up to the trailhead.
For the first wind cleanses and the second wind fills.
After leaving Rachel's Knoll, I arrived at a dinner party attended by my workshop participants, that night being my last night in Sedona. I knock on the front dor, someone answers and says, "Can I help you?" No one recognizes me at first. My facial features had transformed, and I was unable to talk with them until the bliss subsided hours later."
This is why his 'spiritual name' is: "Two Winds."
This sacred place is not on the tourist maps. Rachel's Knoll location is on top of a canyon knoll within the Seven Canyons Golf Resort. For a visit to Rachel's Knoll, politely ask permission from the guard at the resort front gate.

After moving to Sedona to be with author, actor and filmmaker Shaeri Richards, they traveled and he taught Mayan Calendar and DREAMSPEL classes in: Phoenix, Arizona, Mount Shasta, San Francisco, Sacremento, Santa Barbara, Salt Lake City, Durang and Atlanta.
Watch the video of his July 1992 public DREAMSPELL presentation in Sedona, Arizona, here:
Richard first worked as a Jeep tour guide for Sedona Adventures, running tourists around Sedona's famous energy vortex locations and sacred sites.
In 1993, he met The Mayan Factor author DR. JOSÉ ARGÙELLES in Sedona, pictured here:

In 1994, Richard traveled to New Mexico to give his Mayan Calendar presentation in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and also at the Whole Life Expo in Albuquerque.
In 1995, he created a new full-color version of The Mayan Calendar Guidebook, complete with color charts and spiral binder.
Here is a 1996 book review:
New Age Retailer magazine, July/August 1996, pp.44-45;
"This excellent book is a thorough teaching reference that is also easy to understand. The Mayan Calendar Guidebook presents the what, why, and how of tracking the energies and other information presented on the calendars…This reference book should become part of your regular inventory. Customers who are just learning to use a Mayan calendar will find it answers most of their questions and prepares them to be able to use any current Mayan calendar more effectively.
Richard now feels the book is more of a novelty collectors item rather than to be used for current instruction.
In 1997, Richard began using the Guatemala-highlands Mayn Calendar "count of days" after realizing that the Yucatan-lowlands Maya calendar count of days, used by the-late DR. JOSÉ ARGÙELLES was miscounted by 55 days (as of 1997). For the Yucatan-lowlands Maya count of days miscount began hundreds of years ago and is no longer aligned with the rising and setting cycles of the planet Venus, which is what the calendar is supposed to be based upon.
Richard also began developing his own 'approach' to the Mayan Calendar, focusing more on the major and minor cycles of the Mayan time cycles rather than in regard to just the meanings and interpretations of the 20 day-signs, which can vary widely in usage and meanings throughout the Mayan regions of Central America.
Two years earlier, in the summer of 1995, he had two other deeply moving spiritual experiences and adventures.
He recalls what happened,
"On a blazing-hot summer afternoon, September 25, 1995, while skinydippin' alone along the wilderness banks of the Verde River, near Clarkdale, Arizona, I wade up the river quite a long way, exploring huge river-rock sandbars when my eye catches a glimpse of a shiny golden-tan seven-inch-thick sandstone rock resting upon a large sandbar. On the flat-surface of the rock are natural quartz crystals that...wow!...formed an outline image of a near-perfect Hopi kokopelli flute player!
In 1998, Richard was a copywriter and graphic designer for a Sedona tourist magazine. While out delivering the magazines one day, he spots a stranded Jeep at the main Sedona Post Office and offers to help the driver, Susan Hawkins. As a thank you, Susan later mailed to him a copy of her husband's book, Power vs Force, by the-late DR. DAVID R. HAWKINS.
Also in 1998, he realized the 12-note musical scale octave and musical tones are exactly correlated to each day of the Mayan Calendar: each day,, each 13-day Week, each 20-day Month and each 13-year cycle of the Mayan Calendar.
In 1999, he presented this discovery of 'The Musical Code To Time', as documented by a news story in the Sedona Red Rock News.
In 2000, he was the hotel manager of the Wildflower Inn in Sedona across the highway from Bell Rock, and later the hotel manager of the Kokopelli Inn, now named the Days Inn Kokkopelli Inn, owned and operated by the Hopi nation.
For he was humbled to be with the Hopi on their Mesas on multiple occasions.
"Mitakuye oyasin...Blessings to the Hopi Eagle clan and all clans. My life is dedicated to The Living People, The Peaceful One Titus and Diné elder Silver Bear, and all Sacred Rainbow Beings of The Sacred Hoop. Peace and Love in All Generations, Divine."
In 2000, Richard moved to Ohio and became general manager of two health food stores for 10 years.
He is a cancer survivor, having underwent chemo-radiation treatment for cancer with a side-effect being it left him partially blind in one eye.
In 2006, Richard realized that the clinically proven Map of Consciousness, by DR. HAWKINS, is exactly correlated to the 260-day Mayan calendar cycles, resulting in a correlation of both force and Power pulsation-cycles and their 'potentials' for each day and as a fractal unfolding of the levels of consciousness over each 260-day cycle and 13-day cycle.
In 2012, he moved back to Sedona, Arizona, and opens his own retail store, Save Your Health Now.
"The leading-edge and parameters in the fields of 'natural holistic health' today is clinically proven to be a four-fold interconnected balance of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being.
Healing is re-balancing a lifetime of emotional trauma, by being loving and for giving and uplifting everything in The Universe with your love and peace.
With the assistance of our inner Holy Spirit Love, together with utilizing tools like the timings of the Mayan Calendar cycles, a person can understand and use the natural flows of time, using the most accurate calendar in the world, to facilitate moving ones own unbalanced life-forces back into a natural-state of balance, harmony and well-being."
In 2013, he moved back to Ohio.
In 2015, he published his third book, Stonehenge of America: Blue Mounds State Park, his true-life account of discovering at Blue Mounds State Park in Luverne, Minnesota, a hidden ancient natural rock amphitheater with a special sitting ledge upon which to view the sunrise on the first day of spring and autumn,at the eastern end of an ancient quarter-mile long east-west alignment of blue quartzite rocks in the park. He was interviewed for this in November 2009 by host George Noory on Coat to Coast AM, the largest late-night radio show in the world with 4-10 million listeners.
Richard has by grace witnessed seven major miracles and over twenty 'not explainable' events, which reminds him daily how powerful and miraculous life really is.
"The apple tree in our backyard bears fruit in its season. Some apples appear on low branches, some in the middle and some at the very top. Some apples are in dark places, while others bask in The Light. Some ripen sooner than others, some are diseased, and some are rotten to the core. And a few are Perfect, yet only for awhile. But, All are Equal, by Being Alive, because All are ON the same tree. We are All ON the same Tree, the Tree of Life, Holy Sisters and Brothers, a Holy One."
Now, by grace, he shares with love the Ancient Ones Dreamtime Sacred Hoop, The Calendar of the Americas, the 260-day Hero Journey on the One Holy Sacred Path of Eternal Perfect Love and Peace, by inspiration from Within. Seek and Find Thee, True Love and Perfect Peace.
The Calendar is understood-to-be the Circle of Life,
and so We Be All On A Sacred Journey,
meandering thru both Wilderness and Heavens.
