Steve Beckow is founder and editor-in-chief of the Golden Age of Gaia (formerly the 2012 Scenario). He lives in Vancouver, B.C., Canada.
He attended the University of British Columbia, McMaster, Carleton, 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. Steve decided to remain with the study of enlightenment and leave the university.
He began his career as a Cultural Historian for the National Museum of Man (now the Canadian Museum of History) 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 in gender issues.
His spiritual disciplines have included encounter groups, spiritualism, the est Training, rebirthing, Vedanta, 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. Steve does not consider the vision to have been an enlightenment experience. It was written up here. It took nearly 20 years to fully express in words what he saw in eight wordless seconds that day.
More recently Steve had a heart opening on March 13, 2015, which enabled him for nearly a year to experience transformative love and bliss.
His assignment is “to go up with everybody” and write about it.
Steve has written numerous books and perhaps two-thousand articles, many of his earlier works being pseudonymous. All are free.
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. (For these works, see here: https://goldenageofgaia.com/download-page/.)
All his books and articles may be reposted freely. Copyright is declined.
Today, Steve lives a life of voluntary simplicity and research as a non-denominational “urban monk.”
