Steve Beckow is founder and chief executive officer of the Golden Age of Gaia (formerly 2012 Scenario), The Essays of Brother Anonymous, and several other blogs and websites and a member of the InLight Radio team, founded by Graham Dewyea. He lives in Vancouver, B.C., Canada.
He attended the University of British Columbia, Carleton University, and the University of Toronto, graduating with a Masters degree in Canadian History. Steve is a member of Mensa Canada.
He studied in three Ph.D. programs but was uncomfortable remaining within disciplinary boundaries or paradigms. One dissertation was rejected as being outside his chosen field. Another proposal (on enlightenmment as the purpose of life) was rejected as being outside the university’s paradigm of empirical materialism.
He began his career as a Cultural Historian for the National Museum of Man (now the Canadian Museum of Civilization) where he published articles redefining the fields of cultural history, popular culture, and artifact studies. He finished his working life as a Member of the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada, his chief interest being gender issues.
Steve has written perhaps 30 books and a thousand articles, many of his earlier works being pseudonymous. His websites are on enlightenment, the common ground of spirituality, life on the spirit planes, global gender persecution, automation, the truth of 9/11, the dangers of depleted uranium, and the Ascension scenario.
All but two of his books and articles are available without cost and may be reposted freely.
His spiritual disciplines included Gestalt, encounter groups, spiritualism, the est Training, rebirthing, Zen, Vipassana meditation, and Enlightenment Intensives.
In 1977, Steve had an out-of-body experience which dissipated the fear of death. In 1987, he experienced a vision of the total journey of an individual soul from God to God, which demonstrated to him that the purpose of life was enlightenment. That experience is written up here. It took nearly 20 years to fully express in words what he saw in eight wordless seconds that day.
Steve is apparently from Arcturus and has lived on Earth just eight lifetimes: as a priest of the Non-Dual in Atlantis, as a community leader, (twice) as a warrior, as a formulator of mathematical principles and sacred geometry, as the founder of a religious order, and as a helper in the development and spread of the printing press. This lifetime he works as a communicator serving Archangel Michael and the Divine Mother.
He’s enjoyed several transformational or direct experiences of Self, none of which he considers “enlightenment.” His assignment is “to go up with everybody.” Today, Steve lives a life of voluntary simplicity and research as a non-denominational “urban monk.”

Andrea is Managing Director and Managing Editor of the Golden Age of Gaia, in charge of all matters related to producing the blog.
Born and raised in California, Andrea is a hearty mix of immigrants from Germany, Sicily, and the Cherokee tribe from North America. Both sides of her family were strongly matriarchal, and she was raised more by my grandmothers than her parents, bringing their values and wisdom forward a generation.
Raised in Christian fundamentalism, she found her ‘home’ in her twenties as a pagan priestess. She has been an elder since 1983. Because of this formal dedication, she sees it as her sacred duty to serve as a representative of the Divine Mother/Goddess of the Universe.
She lived through ‘terminal’ cancer at 25 years old, during which she had many mystical experiences and holy personages visit her. Angels, devils, and elemental beings are all part of her personal experiences; as are drug addiction (30 years of it), abusive/toxic relationships, suicides, legal prostitution, criminal cartels, homelessness, poverty, wealth, incarceration, and extreme personal danger from repeated attacks coming from both earthly/3D and etheric/4D forces.
Among her skills/life studies are divination/study of symbols (36 years now), natural/metaphysical healing methods (these being self-taught), and master hypnotist, studying for a year under a great pioneer, Lavona Stillman, at the Stillman Institute in San Jose, California.
Andrew is an editor of the Golden Age of Gaia.
Born into a medical family, Andrew grew up in the North of England, was schooled in the Midlands area and qualified in medicine at Manchester University in 1966.
He served for several years as a Medical Officer in the British Navy, travelling extensively throughout the Far East and the Atlantic regions, before returning to England to found and run a general medical practice in a village in the county of Devon.
Andrew returned to a seagoing life and travelled all over the world when he joined the Cunard shipping line as their Principal Medical Officer on board the company’s former flag ship, the QE2. More recently he lived and worked in Germany as a civilian doctor with the British Army, until his retirement in 2010.
Andrew has always accepted that life throughout the Universe and reincarnation are self-evident truths, but only really began to ‘awaken’ in 2011 when he realised innately that he had a Galactic heritage.
He now knows that he has been ‘forever Pleiadian’, has always been a healer and that his ‘Star name’ is Elias. In June 2013 he had an out-of-body reunion with Ellisa, his Twin Flame, on board his Pleiadian Mothership. He understands that this is his first incarnation on Earth, although he has visited this planet from the Pleiades previously on many occasions and has always had a great love for Gaia and her inhabitants.
He incarnated in 1942 in response to Gaia’s call for help in her hour of need and is committed to service to the Divine Mother and to Gaia and her human Collective to see the Ascension process through. He also serves Archangel Michael and has roles to play in Disclosure and subsequently at a grass roots level in a ‘bridging’ mission to assist integration of the Collective with their Star brothers and sisters.
Before his present incarnation he was also Commander of a science, explorer and all-purpose Starship and played a role in the past in the Sirian Migrations whereby certain species not native to Gaia were brought here, including whales, dolphins, canines and bears.
Andrew is greatly looking forward to his Ascension roles and, following the completion and fulfilment of his missions, to returning home to his beloved Pleiades.

Geoffrey is the anchor and producer of Cosmic Vision News and formerly co-host of An Hour With An Angel.
Geoffrey has a Masters degree in Peace Education from the UN-mandated University for Peace in Costa Rica and a Bachelors degree in Radio and Television from Ryerson University in Toronto, Canada. He has knowledge of Swedish, Spanish and French. His work experiences have included the media, the airline industry, the corporate travel reservation industry worldwide and also now as a Visionary Consultant on Galactic, Global and Inner Peace/Healing.
His LIFE-path has uniquely prepared him for the role he is serving at this time – one of bringing awareness to humanity about the oneness of LIFE and humanity’s relation to it, in each moment of ‘now’. Along with this message, he is also bringing a deeper holistic and understanding of the word ‘peace’, and how one’s relation to LIFE influences not only the personal, but also the larger collective experience of what peace is.
Part of his role at this time is to bring a complicated message of how humanity has been separated from LIFE, how we are connected to it, how we can co-create with it, while also introducing humanity to our galactic families that are here to help with this incredible and exciting shift in human and planetary consciousness! The challenge and the joy, is in attempting to bring this message to the people of the world in a way and with a language that is as simple as possible, so all individuals can live their uniquely different yet equally beautiful ‘truths’.
Choices. It is about choices based on one’s relation to LIFE in each moment. Choices that honour Self, humanity, Gaia and now our galactic/celestial families. Global peace and healing begins with a choice – a choice that can only be made by you!

Suzanne is host of InLight Radio’s Heavenly Blessings program.
She has looked after the site’s Reader Relations area since June 2012. It’s a role that sees her manage, forward and respond to the hundreds of queries and news tips that come in via our “Contact Us” form each week. She used to pen a regular Connections by Suzi column.
Answering readers’ questions and suggestions has quickly become the perfect landing spot for Suzi to step into a greater role in assisting the shift of humanity into the Golden Age of Gaia. Her column also became a natural progression for her to share what’s in the hearts of readers, as well as the answers that came through her, which she feels are directly influenced by the Divine Mother and the Company of Heaven.
A single mom living in northwest New Jersey in the U.S. with her beautiful daughter, Merinda, three cats, and a cockatiel, Suzi began her early working life training and caring for animals (her first love). At the age of 24, she found herself traveling across the US doing a wide variety of jobs – from baling hay and working on a cutting-horse ranch, to picking blueberries and doing restaurant and hotel work.
When this ‘nomad’ phase came to an end, Suzanne decided ‘to get serious’ and settled into paralegal school in New Jersey. Certification led to hands-on experience in a variety of law firms, culminating in her role as an executive assistant for a bond insurer in Manhattan – which is where she was working when the first truck bomb went off in the World Trade Center back in 1993. It didn’t take long for her to realize that the big city wasn’t where she wanted to be!
After another brief attempt at finding satisfaction through corporate work, Suzi took a hiatus from professional life to raise her only child, her daughter Merinda. Being a mother was a real game-changer for her and becoming the best model of humanity she could manage soon became her priority.
This newfound focus led to a series of events that saw Suzanne become interested in a number of different therapeutic modalities and, ultimately, Shamanic training and initiation. Having always felt that she was Shamanic by nature, her initial impetus was mostly for personal development of innate skills and wisdom but, learning her craft, she discovered a gift for visionary work, which continues to interest her.
Then in September of 2010, she met a Hawaiian Kahuna. The work she did through her benefited Suzi immeasurably, and around this same time she initiated a daily practice of stillness and meditation: a practice which continues to serve to deepen her felt connection to God.
According to Akashic record and other readings, Suzanne has been on this gorgeous planet from the beginning…Lemuria, Atlantis, and on through many incarnations, many as a healer. Her journey of self-discovery goes on…
Alex Clark was born in Brooklyn to immigrant parents and raised on Long Island, New York, where she currently lives with her husband and two college-aged daughters, a cat, a water frog and two parrots. She holds a Bachelors degree in biology but her career, before becoming a full time mother and textile artist was in advertising, marketing and sales promotion.
Alex was born into a family of empaths, intuitives, prophetic dreamers and energy readers but didn’t realize until much later in life that this type of connection to the energy around us was not the norm. She has always been deeply connected to the Divine Mother, even after rejecting her Catholic upbringing in order to follow her own spiritual guidance. She feels a strong connection to our beloved Gaia and all her kingdoms as well.
Her spiritual path has been eclectic and wide ranging, intermingling with her healing journey related to Lyme Disease and leading her to work with chakras, palmistry, yoga, auras, crystals in an effort open joyfully to a balanced, healthy and harmonious life. In 2010 she began to actively pursue a more spiritual life and frequented many blogs and information sites where spirituality was discussed. She came to the Golden Age of Gaia yahoo forum in mid 2012 and became an active contributing member of the forum. In the beginning of 2013 she became a member of the forum moderating group.
As a child in an internationally blended family, she realized early on how important a wide world view was and has always endeavored to see the many facets of situations that present themselves as one-sided. As her children grew, Alex expanded into traditional food blogging and ran a successful site called A Moderate Life before retiring in early 2012 to pursue a career in web site design, content research and creation and social media management. She is very happy to be able to bring her creative skills to the table and be in service to building Nova Earth along with the Golden Age of Gaia staff .
Brian is a channeled message editor of the Golden Age of Gaia and manages the First Contact database. He also co-manages the Facebook page.
He recalls how even as a child he knew he was not bound by the limitations that have been imposed on humans through ages of conditioning. He recalls an inner knowing that he was from a “somewhere else,” and this inner knowing has only grown stronger through the years.
In 2003, he began his spiritual quest to uncover this sense of magic that was partially subdued by the process of “growing up.” Although it began as slow process that evolved over a number of years, by 2009, he had discovered channeled material, which proved to be the missing link in rediscovering the power we all innately possess as aspects of God. With the shift that took place on December 21, 2012, he no longer feels any sense of doubt that we are shifting into an experience far richer than we’ve been led to believe was ever possible.
Brian has an eclectic background, having received degrees in Psychology, Counseling, and Library Science. In 2006 he became initiated as a Oneness Blessing (deeksha) giver in India. He’s also been trained as a massage therapist and Reiki practitioner. He considers himself to be primarily an energy-based healing facilitator. He is an avid practitioner of Bikram Yoga and Pilates. He’s honored to be part of the Golden Age of Gaia team.

Barry was brought up in Northern Virginia when the little town of Vienna boasted of having a population of 900. Educated by both traditional and melting-pot surroundings he moved forward towards the hippie movement and became an outspoken enthusiast during the upstart of the Vietnam War counseling others that Divine Love was the only true answer to everything.
“Do No Harm” was paramount in his heart and landed him in prison as a conscientious objector. He knows that to raise our vibration to peace, love and loving our neighbor as ourselves does work. He had his first feeling and visual experience with one of his guardian angels at age 15.
Born as an indigo of the 60s into a chaotic German family situation, from early childhood on Devapriya was searching for home and family, and for “the real”, beyond the lies, masks and untruths she perceived everywhere around. Aged 12 she started studying religions, only to after 4 years find out that in essence all religions believe the same, the major difference just being in mind sets and languages. As she wasn’t interested in religion, the system, but in religiousness, the Being, this path of her search came to a close.
In her early twenties, meeting the enlightened being Osho opened her heart and focused her search on enlightenment. No more looking for God on the outside, but going inside and being the light that I AM. Home and family ceased to be a goal out there but a space to be found inside. She moved to India for 13 years where, besides taking on a regular meditation practice, she got trained in Breath Therapy, Counseling, Hypnotherapy, Energywork and Aquatic Bodywork, and returned to her country of birth together with her little son in 2003.
The Harmonic Cenvergence 1987 had plugged her into “Ascension Gaia”, and a vision has accompanied her and kept her straight through all the hardships of the search: there is a caravan of love, people walking and singing and dancing on their path towards unity consciousness – a few early ones starting, soon thousands joining, multiplying to millions, potentiating to billions, all heading towards the portal… all of humanity ascending …
This vision is what she has dedicated her service to. The joy of sharing with people, face-to-face and on the internet, has brought her to the 2012scenario discussion group, where she can follow her most beloved part-time. Divine Service is not designed to be hard work, it’s more a state of Being: be the light that you are; sing the song of your own voice; play with what gives you most joy; follow your heart. Simple as that :-).
