"Humor allows the Foolish to be seen without shame, the pain to become a smile
and our-ego to pass from darkness into Light giggles innocent child.".
Judge Anna von Rietz states,
The Living People call him, Richard Alan Eagle.
Some of his childhood-memories are: being with his father who requently 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.
He attended high-school: St. Anthony Village, Minnesota, 1969-1975: Assistant-Editor of the school-newspaper; President of the Concert Choir, wins 4-star-rating at the 1975 Minnesota State High School Vocal Competion; Supporting-Actor in school theater plays and Lead-Actor in the 1975 production.
He attended colleges: (1975) The University of Minnesota, Minneapolis (where his grandfather managed the experimental gardens); (1976) ITT Minnesota School Of Business, Minneapolis, Minnesota; (1977-78) Bemidji State University, Bemidji, Minnesota.
In 1978. he visited Aspen,Colorado, for a summer spiritual-retreat; and one-day he participated with a group of eleven-other-people for a whitewater rafting trip on the Colorado River, with all becoming extremely-sun-burned.
He recalls what happened later that night,
"Our sun-burned rafting group-members are in prayer just before our nightly bible-study, when a powerful energy-field of divine love and joy suddenly materializes, overwelming 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-sunbirns are healed; we have no trace of the serious red skin-burns. I am still amazed at what happened that night."
For him, that miraculous group-healing experience is a major life-changer.
In 1979, he moves to Aspen, Colorado, for two years, then returns to Minnesota in 1983.
In 1984 he gathers 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 creates his first Mayan-calendar class and with it the first-edition of The Mayan Calendar Guidebook, a study-guide with combined Mayan-and-Gregorian-calendars that becomes a yearly publication.
In 1991, he is visited in Minneapolis by Willard van de Bogart, a close-friend of DR. JOSÉ ARGÙELLES. Willard tells him that José confided in him. Willard stated, "JOSÉ said to me, that 'of all the people he knew of, besides his wife Lloydine, that you have the best-understanding of his Mayan-calendar research'." Willard then presented to Richard the first pre-production DREAMSPEL kit, along with a hand-written note from JOSÉ , with the words, "Keep up the good work."
After moving to Sedona to be with Sheri Richards, they travelled together and he taught his Mayan-calendar-and-DREAMSPEL classes in: Phoenix, AZ, Mount Shasta, CA, San Francisco, CA, Sacremento, CA, Santa Barbara, CA, Salt Lake City, Durang,CO and Atlanta, GAo.
He taught his first Mayan-calendar-and-DREAMSPELL class in Sedona. The day-after the class he has the-most-powerful-spiritual-moments of his life while out-hiking with a friend 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 flows towards me. The wind rises-up the knoll to blow right-thru-me, deep into my heart and soul, extemely-powerful spiritual-energies, leaving me in a state of perfect peace, divine love and grace.
After a minute the birds begin-to-sing and bugs reappear, as I sit there dazed-in-bliss.
After a few more 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 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 I see stars-in-the-sky and 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 onerecognizes me at-first. My facial-features had transformed, and I was unable to talk with them until the bliss subsided hours later."
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.

He later also works as a Jeep-tour guide for Sedona Adventures. For him, guiding tourists around Sedona's famous energy-vortex locations and sacred sites is a dream job.
In 1993, he met The Mayan Factor author DR. JOSÉ ARGÙELLES in Sedona, pictured here:
He is front-left; DR. JOSÉ ARGÙELLES and his wife Lloydine are top-left-center in white.
"JOSÉ was an artist, scholar and trickster. He had come to Sedona to give a talk promoting his 13-Moon-Calendar, but spent most of the talk ranting about ditching the Gregorian-calendar and the evils of money, only to "passed the hat" at the end, which I found ironic. .I was disappointed he said almost nothing about the Mayan-calendar. And the whole-idea of the Gregorian-calendar going 'bye-bye' I thought unrealistic, as proven by his 13-Moon-Calendar using Gregorian-calendar dates! Yet I found him warm, charming and a lovong-soul in our precious few minutes together alone, that we sealed it with a big hug."
In 1994, he travels to New Mexico to give his Mayan-calendar presentation in Santa Fe, and at the Whole Life Expo in Albuquerque,..
In 1995, he creates a new full-color-version of The Mayan Calendar Guidebook, complete with color-charts and a 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."
In 1997, he begins using the Guatemala-highlands-Maya count-of-days, after realizing that the Yucatan-lowlands-Maya count-of-days, used by the=late-DR. JOSÉ ARGÙELLES is miscounted by 55 days, as of 1997. For the Yucatan-lowlands-Maya count-of-days-miscount began hundreds-of-years-ago and is in misalignment with the rising-and-setting-cycles of the planet-Venus.
He also begins 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 useage-and-meanings throughout the Maya-regions of Central America.
Two years earlier, in the summer of 1995. he has 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 is 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 mails to him a copy of her husband's book, Power vs Force, by the-late-DR. DAVID R. HAWKINS.
Also in 1998, he realizes 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 calendar.
In 1999, he presents this discovery of the musical codes-to-time, as documented by a news story in the Sedona Red Rock News.
For he is humbled to be with the Hopi on their Mesas on multiple-occassions.
"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, he moves to Ohio and is the General Manager of two health food stores for 10 years.
In 2001, he is diagnosed with stage-three cancer, needing four major-surgeries and endures the near-loss of sight in his right-eye that he is still recovering-from.
In 2006, he realizes 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.
In 2012, he moves back to Sedona, Arizona, and opens his own retail store, Save Your Health Now.
"The leading-edg and parameters in the- ields of 'natural holistic health' today is clinically-proven to be a four-fold interconnected balance of physical-emotional-mental-and-spiritual well-being. With the assistance of our inner Holy Spirit Love, together-with utilizing tools like th -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 un-balanced life-forces back into a natural-state of balance, harmony and well-being."
In 2013, he moves back to Ohio.
In 2015, he publishes his second book, Stonehenge of America: Blue Mounds State Park, his true-life-account of discovering at Blue Mounds State Park in Luverne, Minnesota, at the eastern-end of an ancient quarter-mile-long east-west-alignment of blue-quartzite-rocks in the park, a hidden ancient natural-rock-amphitheater, with a special sitting-ledge upon which to view the sunrise on the first day of spring and autuum.
He has by grace witnessed seven major-miracles and over twenty "unexplanable" 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.
