Unarius Goes to Hollywood—Again!

Sunday, September 4th, 2016

In May 2014, Unariuns went to Hollywood to participate in a three-day event, “Welcome, Space Brothers,” at the Cinefamily. It was a fantastic experience with screenings of Unarius films; live Q&A sessions and two workshops with Unariuns; and a display of Unarius artifacts, costumes, and photos on the back patio. Thanks to Jodi Wille, who hosted the “Welcome, Space Brothers” event, Unarius was invited back to Hollywood on August 21 to be part of the “Women of Cinefamily” weekend.

On the 21st, fourteen Unariuns traveled to The Standard Hotel, West Hollywood, to take part in “We Are Not Alone: The Films of Unarius.” This amazing event was presented by The FRONT, Cinefamily, and The Standard Hollywood, and hosted by Jodi Wille.  Celebrating Unarius’ creative legacy, then and now, the hotel lobby became a gallery for framed images from Unarius’ videos and films (displayed from July 20 to August 31).

The interactive glass box or “human aquarium,” behind the front desk in the hotel lobby, was filled with Unarius ephemera, books, and a monitor playing Unarius videos 24/7 to evoke the outer and inner-dimensional world of a Unariun student (portrayed by a live model), during Unarius’ peak creative years from 1975-1985.

On the 21st, the day’s events featured a Unarius creativity workshop; the release of 33 white doves out of the small spaceship atop the Space Cad; and “The Films of Unarius,” in the evening: including Jodi Wille’s new short film, We Are Not Alone; the Cinefamily mix-tape of great moments of Unariun cinema; and a sneak peek of the new high-definition transfer of The Arrival from the original 16 mm film.

Lani Calvert, Billie McIntyre, and Paula Greenwood co-facilitated the hands-on creativity workshop: “Develop Your Clairvoyant and Creative Potential: An Art Workshop for Everyone.The workshop was held in the hotel’s small conference room, and there was so much interest that a second workshop was added at the last minute to accommodate as many people as possible. Participants experienced a guided trip to Muse, an attunement to the Master Artists residing on this spiritual plane devoted to the arts, before deciding what medium they would use to create their own inspirational art project. You can watch a short video of the creativity workshop on Unarius’ YouTube channel and read an article in the LA Weekly about the writer’s experience of the workshop: “Can Anyone Be Clairvoyant? The Unariuns Think So”

A workshop attendee, Deborah Charles, posed with her collage after the workshop and commented that as an energy healer, she could really feel the energies,  the high frequencies coming through Billie who led the guided journey. She related: I especially enjoyed the guided meditation, opening up my visions and messages from my ancestors and the celestial beings, and then allowing me to translate [that] into my artwork. I look forward to visiting the center and expanding my horizons and knowledge.

Another participant, Michael Lackner, posted this comment on Unarius’ Facebook page: The workshop was very helpful in unblocking creativity and was such fun. I wonder if others had my experience—in looking at their artwork later and seeing more than consciously met their eye at the moment of completion. Lani commented: We hoped that participants would be able to get a glimpse of the inner planes during the guided imagery at the beginning of the session, and Michael apparently did so. Check out his artwork compared to the painting depicting the three healing flames on the Inner from the Unarius book Conclave of Light Beings.

The Films of Unarius” event was free, but required an RSVP and hundreds of people signed up, with 200 actually attending! The films were shown on the expansive hotel pool deck, where a large projection screen was set up. The evening also featured a short Q&A with four Unariuns: Kevin Kennedy, Lani Calvert, Suzanne Farnsworth, and Jennifer Stovall.

The three ladies each wore one of Uriel’s dresses, including a dress Uriel wore for her role in The Arrival, and Kevin wore a men’s top from the costume room. The highlight of the evening was seeing the new high-definition version of The Arrival. The clarity of the picture and sound was so much better that we saw details and heard sounds that we never had before!

What’s next: You can see The Arrival in the new HD format at the 33rd Interplanetary Conclave of Light, “Creating Our Positive Future.”The sneak peak of The Arrival will happen on Saturday evening (10/8). Creativity Workshops will be offered at this event, too, on Sunday afternoon (10/9).

The Horse Hospital

The Unarius Academy was honored to participate in The Horse Hospital’s Collective Intention Programme, showcasing Unariun films, costumes, artifacts, paintings, and photos, and introducing Unarius to many people for the first time. The Horse Hospital is a respected art venue, presenting underground and avante garde media since 1993; including the work of visionary artists Joe Coleman, Norbert Kox, and many others, and hosting musicians and personalities such as Donovan, Anita Pallenberg, and David Tibet.

The Exhibition

Jodi Wille curated the Unariun exhibition, working with several students to have it prepared and shipped ahead of the opening on June 17. Unariuns Kevin and Tracey Kennedy flew to London with Jodi, arriving a few days before the 17th to help with the setup of the month-long exhibition. Tracey commented: “I was so excited fly to London to have the opportunity to share Unarius in this way. Even more exciting was the receptivity of the people to what Unarius has to offer—Wow!”

Friday night, June 17, was the UK premier of Unarius’ super8 masterwork, A Visit to the Underground Cities of Mars (1977). Three people told Jodi they felt “high” after seeing the Mars film—they were not on any drugs or drunk but felt transcended. Two short films were shown before the feature film: Cinefamily’s mashup highlighting Unarius’ public access videos and Jodi Wille’s short, We Are Not Alone. After viewing the shorts, Jodi interviewed Kevin and Tracey about Unarius, filming, creativity, and more, and audience asked many insightful questions. You can view a short clip of the interview on Unarius’ YouTube channel.

Kevin & Tracey at the workshop

On Sunday, Kevin and Tracey led a workshop for artists: “Develop Your Clairvoyant and Creative Potential.” They were pleasantly surprised to have such a positive reception to the ideas and concepts presented. Kevin related: “During the workshop I looked out at the audience and one woman had a look of rolling her eyes. I didn’t know what to expect. After the workshop, she was so excited and complimented us on how much she got out of it and enjoyed participating.” Tai, from The Horse Hospital, participated in the workshop and really appreciated it. At the end she remarked, “Can Unarius take an atheist and a nihilist? I’m ready to sign up!”

Our opening sold out days before the event and according to what we’ve learned, the audience seemed to be filled with a who’s who of the London underground art and music scene. Jodi told us that her friends James Sclavunos, music producer and longtime drummer for Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, and Victoria Yeates, who plays Sister Winifred in the TV series Call the Midwife and her friend Geno Carapetta, musician and drummer for the English rock band Gentlemen, were spotted in the audience.

Jodi Wille: “The Unariuns and I had an incredible time working with the immensely kind and generous people at The Horse Hospital. We met so many beautiful and brilliantly talented people in this community of artists, writers, performers, and other enthusiasts who are at the core of keeping London’s avant garde art scene alive and vital. Thank you and bless you, Roger Burton, Tai Shani, and Sholto, and so many new and old friends who welcomed us so warmly, for this experience of a lifetime.”

Sholto from The Horse Hospital: “I had a blast and enjoyed meeting you all. We’ve had loads of great responses to the show, most of them joyous and amazed!”

 

What’s next: The Standard Hotel, Hollywood will be presenting a “Welcome, Space Brothers” event on Sunday, August 21, featuring: a hands-on creativity workshop, a dove release from the Unarius Space Cad; and an evening of films under the stars. The hotel lobby has been transformed into an interactive Unarius art exhibition that will be on display through August.

THE ARRIVAL at the SFIFF

Saturday, May 9th, 2015

SFIFF event listing

On May 2, several Unariuns traveled to San Francisco for the screening of The Arrival at the 58th San Francisco International Film Festival (SFIFF). The festival, running from April 23–May 7, featured over 200 films and live events, including: “Welcome, Space Brothers: The Films of the Unarius Academy of Science with Jodi Wille.”

Kevin Kennedy, Jack and Celeste Appel, and Jennifer Stovall took part in a Q&A after Jodi Wille introduced Unarius with a short slide show, followed by a Cinefamily mashup of the best-of-Unarius videos. The event concluded with The Arrival—screened in Blu-ray format for the first time. Tracey Kennedy videoed the Q&A, and you can watch highlights of the Q&A on YouTube.

The theatre was filled to capacity. Kevin was thrilled to hear a young woman sitting behind him say: “I drove over three hours to be able to see this movie on the big screen.” Here are more comments from Kevin and the other Unariuns who participated in the fantastic event:

“What a glorious and wonderful way to share the healing light and love that Unarius has brought to the world. Uriel told us over 35 years ago that these films and videos were the way that we would share the truth of Unarius with the world and now it’s coming to pass. It was a fantastic, light-filled event!”  —Kevin Kennedy

“Being part of the film festival was a wonderful experience. It was exciting to see Unarius moving forward and the principles in The Arrival being shown to so many new people. We were so well accepted by the staff at the film festival that I knew we had overcome the obstacles that have prevented us from being able to get Unarius known in a bigger way over the years.” Jack Appel

“It was fantastic seeing the audience appreciate The Arrival and hearing their comments afterward. The students who spoke on the panel were great representatives of how creativity and inspiration work when applying Unarius principles in one’s life.” Tracey Kennedy

“Each time The Arrival is shown you can see how the high energies uplift the audience, which is so awesome.  This was the premier of The Arrival in Blu-ray format and it looked the best ever. Thanks to Jodi and the the San Francisco Film Society for hosting this event.”  Celeste Appel

“During the event, I became more aware of how Uriel’s love projections to her students touched their lives and remain regenerative and eternal; the healings continue and are still applicable today. To see The Arrival again and share our experiences with this positive audience was very uplifting. Special thanks to Jodi Willie for her inner inspiration and the San Francisco Film Society to help make this happen!” Jennifer Stovall

A BIG thank you to Jodi Wille for making this happen. She had the idea to send a copy of The Arrival for review by the SFFS programmer, Sean Uyehara, after it premiered in May 2014 at The Cinefamily in Hollywood (Welcome, Space Brothers).

There was another contact made at the Cinefamily that resulted in The Arrival being shown at The Cube Cinema in Bristol, England last December (2014). This screening was part of a program curated by writer and film archivist Jack Stevenson, who had seen it at The Cinefamily. So who knows where The Arrival will be shown next, but we do know it’s just the beginning of many more opportunities for the love and light of the Unariun Brothers to be spread around the world.

61 Years of Love in Action

Monday, February 16th, 2015

Unarius, 61 Years of Love in Action

by Paula Rich-Greenwood

 

Sixty-one years,

sixty-one millennia,

and for sixty-one million years,

earthbound souls sought the key to freedom.

Since time ever lasting,

seems forever we searched for True Love,

we searched the byways, the star ways, and infinite highways.

True Love always alluded us when we traversed the lowly ways

in darkened doorways and fiery hell days.

 

Desolate soul calls reverberated through our beings

and a million souls resounded thunderings

as voices in unison with tear-stained faces

and eyes upturned toward heaven’s graces.

Who shall heed our cries?

And see our upturned eyes?

To answer our quest for mercy’s test,

we championed duality with our Best.

When True Love touches our heart,

tis then, we are no longer apart.

 

The key to freedom

set forth from Archangel’s wisdom

tis a true test for endurance,

fortitude, will, might, and patience

to overcome the beastly self

and emerge a brilliant brighter self

in the essence of True Love’s Light.

 

The key to freedom

is to care for the garden path

to toil the earth with sod and grass,

and to harvest the bounty in love, en masse.
The path to freedom

is first set forth by truth seekers, caretakers,

and Infinite Light Workers,

who nurture the Way-Seers

and reciprocate True Love’s Infinite Keepers;

the Unarius Brothers/Sisters/Archangels

who manifest freedom through evolutionary changes.

 

Unarius, a million millennia with Love in Action.

 

The AVAM Visionary Experience

Wednesday, October 8th, 2014

TVE Preview Party Flyer - emailUnariun artists Kevin Kennedy and Paula Rich Greenwood have returned from their trip to Baltimore for the opening events of The Visionary Experience: Saint Francis to Finster at the American Visionary Art Museum (AVAM).

Uriel Painting in Musuem

Uriel, Cosmic Visionary

Paula Rich Greenwood wrote this about her experience: “It was an honor and privilege to have been invited to the American Visionary Art Museum (AVAM) as a Unariun representative and polarity. I spent two extraordinary transcended and inspiring days at the museum, and felt invigorated with the light and love emanating from the ‘quadrocentric’ cosmic visionaries, the founders and overlords for Unarius: Archangels Uriel, Michiel, Raphiel, and Muriel. I was in awe and delighted to have such a distinguished opportunity to present my painting, Uriel, Cosmic Visionary, at such a notable and historic museum.

“The museum was founded in 1989 by a visionary in her own right, Rebecca Alban Hoffberger, for having the fortitude and foresight to establish such a vessel to incorporate a multitude of visionaries. Rebecca eloquently blends past, present, and future with an array of polymath pioneers: artists, writers, sculptors, engineers, architects, scientists, and spiritualists.

“I’m most appreciative to Jodi Wille for following her own inner guidance by introducing Unarius to the AVAM platform, the Cinefamily creative experience in Los Angeles, and hopefully many more future endeavors to come.

“Many of the AVAM creatives/artists/visionaries report their inspired works were received from a higher interdimensional source referred to as God, angels, divine inspiration, and Infinite Creative Intelligence. There was an interwoven connectedness among the artists, as many had experienced near-death experiences with spiritual awakening, many have beliefs of reincarnation, and others were involved with different traditional religious backgrounds. Each visionary from the past and present were illuminated with a profound calling and mission to expound on the mysteries of science and spirit through their art and works.

“Uriel’s love oscillation was radiated to everyone in attendance, as a number of visitors and presenters at the museum periodically would walk up to me and give me a hug. I was reminded of the wonderful memories spent with Uriel after spending hours in her aura at a Unarius celebration. The love vibration was so radiant that I felt in perfect harmony with the world upon leaving the celebration. The love energy was so intense I felt like hugging everyone and everything; I felt as one with the universe and all living things, and for a brief moment, I felt what it was like to be omniscient. This weekend was a reflection of these cherished memories long past and the new light-filled memories to be birthed in the coming days, months, and years.”

LOVE on sculpture bldg.Kevin Kennedy shared his wonderful experience at the museum:  “After arriving at the museum it was obvious to me that it had been set up by the Unarius Brothers: With the big letters spelling out L-O-V-E on the side of the sculpture building and AVAM front of museumthe crystalline nature of the gallery building, how could it be anything else? This whole exhibition was dedicated to the understanding that inspiration comes from higher worlds, if we are to be truly creative. It starts with St. Francis of Assisi and the realization that we must leave behind materialism if we are going to explore our inner nature, and continues through many different visionaries, from Walter Russell to Ingo Swann—souls who have explored the reality of extraterrestrial life and inner awareness—and concludes our journey through this gallery with Unarius’ artwork.

“All the walls in the gallery were painted different colors for the different artists represented. Unarius’ area was AVAM Unarius displayappropriately painted bright yellow and lit up the entire gallery. I loved how Uriel’s portrait, painted by Paula, dominated one wall and had Uriel’s quote above it: “The future of planet Earth is positive and progressive!” But that’s not all. We also have Uriel giving pertinent information via video footage continuously playing for the passing viewer. Uriel explains how we are all inspired from these brothers and sisters of light on the inner planes: ‘when you’re open and aware of it!’ All of us artists taking part in the show felt—from the very beginning—an overriding sense of love and appreciation, which once again proved the influence of the higher minds on this wonderful show.”

Unarius Artwork in AVAM Exhibition

Friday, September 12th, 2014

TVE Preview Party Flyer - emailUnariun artists Kevin Kennedy and Paula Rich-Greenwood will be traveling to Baltimore, Maryland at the end of September to represent Unarius at the media and opening previews of The Visionary Experience: Saint Francis to Finster at the American Visionary Art Museum (AVAM). Unarius artwork and more will be featured in this exhibition that opens October 4 and will run through August 30, 2015. The AVAM is the first nationally recognized museum dedicated to visionary, self-taught art, so Unarius’ inspirational artwork is a perfect fit! Guest curator Jodi Wille and AVAM founder and director Rebecca Alban Hoffberger have “assembled a diverse and wildly transcendent collection of artists, scientists, philosophers, and spiritual pioneers who have ventured straight to the source of inspiration itself.” Read more about this exhibition on AVAM’s website.

The Cosmic Generator

Jodie Wille visited the center last February to photograph paintings by Unariun artists and several of Uriel’s costumes to be considered for the exhibition. We were thrilled that four paintings (see below) and the Peacock Princess of Atlantis cape were selected. Additionally, photographs of the Cosmic Generator, the Unarius Space Cad, and Unariuns dressed in costume for an event held in 1979 (see below) at the center were chosen to showcase inspirational works. The museum director was so impressed by the Cosmic Generator that it is not only featured on the AVAM website, but also on the exhibition program cover! Jodie being a filmmaker herself (The Source Family, 2012) wanted to make sure museum visitors were introduced to Unarius films and videos, another form of creative expression. So visitors will be able to watch footage from The Arrival, combined with footage of Uriel speaking on creativity and the true source of inspiration, in the Unarius exhibit area. This video can be viewed on Unarius’ YouTube channel.

The Peacock Princess of Atlantis cape was created by a Unarius seamstress in the early 80s for Uriel to wear during filming. According to a short article in the Pictorial Tour book, the cape originally had 800 peacock feather eyes glued on it. But after so many years, the peacock feathers were deteriorating and falling off. Unariun artist and seamstress Billie McIntyre removed all the old feathers and 740 new peacock eyes were individually glued on. The art shipping company workers that picked up Unarius’ exhibition items three weeks ago handled the cape with great care, hanging it in their van and then

covering it with plastic. They said a special container would be created for the cape at their warehouse in San Diego, and the paintings would be crated in preparation for transport by truck to the museum in Baltimore.

Museum staff notified us last week that the shipping company did an excellent packing job and everything had arrived safely. As stated in their email: “We are very excited to be working with this fascinating collection!”

How fantastic that thousands of people will be able to learn about Unarius through the exhibition—the museum has over 100,000 visitors a year!

Unarius Celebrates 60 Years!

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014
And the Angels Sing, performing "I Just Called to Say I Love You"

And the Angels Sing, performing “I Just Called to Say I Love You”

Unarius celebrated 60 years of Love in Action with a “Tribute to Spirit” on February 16, 2014.  Highlights of the evening were the performance by the Unarius choralliers, And the Angels Sing; words of appreciation from Unarius students; and archival  footage of Ernest and Ruth Norman, in the early years.

In the words of Paul Rich-Greenwood, who watched the live stream of this wonderful event: “The angelic voices of the choral singers brought me to tears as I sang along and reminisced to so many wonderful memories when we sang those very words every time Uriel came to the Unarius Center. My mind was flooded with cherished recollections and celebrations when we would spend hours in Uriel’s aura and leave the Center floating on clouds in a glorious transcendence.

Ernest and Ruth Norman

Ernest and Ruth Norman

I loved watching the videos of Uriel and Raphiel at home, portraying beauty and playful humor as seemingly regular earth people; yet in reality, they were super-celestial overlords and avatars.

When I closed my eyes, I saw a huge circular coliseum-temple on the inner, with thousands of onlookers in celebration of the Hierarchy and the Unarius mission. The light was brilliant as shafts of white light illumined the facility, and each attendee was psychically bathed and cleansed in the luminance of blue, golden-orange, and rose-colored lights. Instead of each person walking through the flames of light, the entire facility was infused with each of the healing colors. I was reminded of scenes from the

Temple on the Inner Planes

Temple on the Inner Planes

Conclave of Light Beings book, as I saw cherubs and light beings, flying dancer/light beings, musicians, symphonies, and a host of interdimensional onlookers in celebration and honor of the Archangels. It seemed the audience was visiting from various planets and dimensions and was comprised of different levels of development. Each row of visitors represented a specific color, planet or plane, and level of development. There was a central platform in the middle of the room, and it seemed there was a visitation from the Hierarchy, but I don’t think it was in any sort of physical form. I sensed they were immersed with the light that infused the temple; they were Light.”
