The Menhir is the current events/update page for Nemeta—like a campus bulletin board you find in the “student union” building. Entries posted in reverse chronological order can be found with most recent at the top for fast access.
The Menhir is the unique page in Nemeta that tracks and displays the ongoing activities of the School. Here you find the announcement of updates on newly added material, completed Blocks, Dakini Weather Watch (Who is on Shift), revisions, talks and texts in progress, proposals of projects, events and meet-ups, and more. This introduction continues below the updates…

Wednesday June 3rd 2020:
Veteran Shaktas and newcomers are invited to view the launch of sophianicmyth.org, a platform dedicated to spreading the Fallen Goddess Scenario to a wider audience. Subscribers to the site will receive one Episode every five days. JLL has reworked the first nine Episodes into FGS 1.5, presenting an upgraded version of the story plus other features not previously available. That being so, those who love and live in the sacred narrative, and have done so already for years, may also benefit from this presentation which is, as said, aimed at newcomers. Nemeta invites you to share this new platform far and wide.
Tuesday 2nd June 2020: New unit page in 12 Ideosophy: Stalking the Metanarrative.
Friday 29th May 2020: Staff and Visitors take special note of The Home Story Orientation Talk on the landing page of Course 2 Sophianic Cosmology. This 40-minute talk presents a sneak preview of material to be released on June 3 on a new platform designed to introduce and promote interest in the Fallen Goddess Scenario, aimed at a wider audience.
Wednesday 27th May 2020: Exclusive to staff, 17 Timeline of the Terma. Photos and other self-important trifles to be added as they turn up. What’s it to Her? All life-stories that are woven knowingly into the Earth Dreaming are equivalent to Her.
Tuesday 26th May 2020: Bhudevi blast of beauty to kick off the new shift.
Never forget that the Terma of Gaia Awakening was born in Andalucia, in the mountains of the Serrania de Ronda, in sight of the Straits of Gibraltar and the mountains of Africa. In Gaucin, el Balcon de la Serrania. Entre dos Aguas: between two waters, the Mediterranean and the Atlantic.
Paco (born in Algeciras) was a musical Nagual and master of living in beauty. Not to mention an incurable perfectionist! In a single line he refuted the entire teaching of Buddhism on suffering: “You can’t be happy unless you suffer.” That is a lesson to be learned by countless millions around the world today as the Selector doubles down and sorts out the wheat from the chaff. May those who dare to defy the “Authorities” be delivered from their illusions of freedom! And suffer to know the truth of what it really means to be free!
Monday 25th May 2020: Early omens of Operation Medusa
SOTT Article Have you ever seen a sprite? Some say it’s impossible. The strange and fleeting forms of red lightning materialize above thunderheads, usually disappearing again in less time than it takes to blink. Yet storm chaser Michael Gavan had no trouble seeing these on May 23rd.
“Extremely bright ‘jellyfish’ sprites were easily visible naked-eye through evening twilight!”says Gavin. “This is a framegrab of the brightest one I managed to capture with my astrophotography-modified Canon T3i.” Gavin saw the display from northwestern Kansas. “Clear skies to the northwest afforded fantastic views of an MCS (Mesoscale convective system) moving through the Nebraska panhandle,” he says. Over the weekend, a low pressure system got stuck in the area, producing ferocious electrical storms with abundant lightning and sprites.
Solar Minimum could be boosting sprites. During this low phase of the solar cycle, cosmic rays from deep space flood into the inner solar system relatively unimpeded by the sun’s weakening magnetic field. Some models hold that cosmic rays help sprites get started by creating conductive paths in the atmosphere. If so, now is a good time to look for sprites.
§ The resemblance of the atmospheric sprite to the severed Medusa head is striking, complete with blood spurting and the serpentine tresses hanging down limply. Numerous staff have noted events marked by the striking and unusual appearance of red, magenta, madder in flowers and in the sky. The madder-magenta spectrum in nature displays the naked physics of the rapture circuits of the Aeonic Mother. Everything is material.
This article dovetails well with another report, one of several that have come up lately, concerning the weakening of the earth’s magnetic field related to the Solar Minimum. For instance. This article reiterates a widely held view, namely, “At surface level, the South Atlantic Anomaly presents no cause for alarm. However, satellites and other spacecraft flying through the area are more likely to experience technical malfunctions as the magnetic field is weaker in this region, so charged particles can penetrate the altitudes of low-Earth orbit satellites.” (Italics added.)
Thanks to Xochipelli of Kokopelli Seeds for cueing me to these items.
Sunday 24th May 2020:
Day 2, Second Shift of Tara/Bhudevi 2020
Sunset crescent for the second shift of Bhudevi/Tara has been sighted. This is how it looks on Sunday 24th May. Note the separation of Mercury and Venus which is notably rapid due to the fact that Venus is retrograde, shifting left to right down the Horn, and Mercury is direct, racing right to left between the Horns. The crescent moon is off the tip of the lower Horn, sliding into the Milky Way. You are all encouraged to catch this spectacle if viewing conditions allow. And to picture it imaginatively if not so.
Operation Medusa continues to unfold. The ritual cording of May 22 was only the trigger moment. The Intervention Call is ongoing. The expulsion of G5G continues and escalates. So no one missed the boat by not attending the exact moment of the ritual.
JLL wishes to emphasize that the Intervention Call is unlike any other rite of Gaian Tantra. Among the differences is this: it is a call to celebration. This celebration is continuous from the initial moment. One way to celebrate is to dance. There is a specific three-beat mantra — recall the tah-tah-tah of the Bharata Natyam dancers — that figures as a dance move in ongoing observation of this act of power. To be described both to members and visitors in the coming week.
The Authorities always lie, but freedom is contagious.
Take that as the watchword for supporting Sophia’s Correction.
Saturday 23rd May 2020:
Friday May 22nd 2020: The cording ritual for Operation Medusa occurs at 17 hours UTC today. See the World Clock to know when that is at your location.
Beneath the panel listing locations around the world you will see on the righthand side of the screen the UTC (GMT/Zulu). 17 hours is the moment.
Perseus Guard, go to Operation Medusa for DAY ONE additional briefing.
NON-MEMBERS who opt to monitor this event may do so at that exact moment or any time that suits you in the course of the day or evening. When you log on to the Shakti Cluster at point 16, the blue dot, you are simultaneous with everyone else who is logged on, no matter in which time zone they are located. Use the introduction “I am Rhome” to log on, then go to point 18 and center yourself there with the presence of the earth, then place the labrys in the V sight, the cross-hairs, and picture it hovering there, rotating. The expulsion of Gaia’s 5G, the G5G, proceeds from the torque of the labrys and radiates from the five points of the florette. The purpose of this ritual is a pre-emptive strike against the archontic weapons of the Authorities.
What can you expect as results from this event? That is not to be foreseen but lived in the immediate course of events. Whatever comes, keep this line in mind:
Sophia’s Correction: when common sense goes viral.
Wednesday 20th May 2020: Final briefing for the Perseus Guard on Operation Medusa
Algol Day, when Comet SWAN passes the star marking the head of Medusa in the Perseus-Andromeda tableau. Observers without binoculars and ideal viewing conditions will not be able to see it. Check amateur astronomy sites if you want to visualize the event.
Color-coded selection of cords for the Intervention Call, two sinkers, cording knife (thanks to the Nordic Team), and the 3RD NAIL on black leader thread.
Left to right: blue 11 Swan Deva, white 12 Tantra Mother, red 13 Kurukulla, green 14 Vudasi, yellow 15 BodhiMa. These are the liberationist powers of the Shakti Cluster, the Diamond Sky Dakinis: liberating from (in order) fantasy, pretending, fear, wrong attachment, and denial. Clear enough!!

Tuesday 19th May 2020: On the watch here in Spain for signs and omens favorable to the Intercession Call. Lo and behold, three wild boars come across the field directly in front of the house, right after twilight.
In Hindu myth, the third incarnation of Vishnu is the Varaha, the Boar Avatar. The legend says that Varaha lifted the Earth, personified as the goddess Bhudevi, out of the cosmic ocean. The demon Hiranyaksha had attempted to steal the earth and conceal her in the primordial waters, but Vishnu intervened. Assuming the form of the boar, he slew the demon, retrieved the Earth from the ocean, lifting it on his tusks, and restored Bhudevi to her rightful place in the universe.
Following the narrative, this episode would present one of those nine events that Sophia imagined as an intervention scenario she would have undertaken in the preceding experiments with the Anthropos — A-3, to be precise. The factor at risk was Bhudevi, Beauty. To conceal Bhudevi in the “primordial waters” means to reduce the terrestrial body to mere cosmic dust, the material of the Kenoma, the galactic arms. Oddly, we have been noticing for a couple of nights that the Milky Way appears to have disappeared or at least is fading out. It looks like a dim grey mist, dissipating. This visual effect is inexplicable. And the same effect appears to show up on Stellarium. Figure it!
Note the significant tropes: Bhudevi is the devata on shift, overseeing this ritual. The horns of the BULL, the tusks, figure prominently in the timing and imaginative setting, as already explained.
It has to be said that in 18 years of living in Spain, I have never seen a jabali, the black wild boar that roams all over the country, from north to south. There were three witnesses to the three boars, the Nagual and two Shaktas: in fact the trio in the Perseus Guard who perform the Call.

Saturday 16th May 2020: Staff, attention please: I am composing the commentary and instructions of the Intervention Call in real time, which involves some editing and rearrangement of content posted so far. The three unit pages active are the Perseus Guard, Operation Medusa, and The Intervention Call (not yet released). The contents are scrambled and I am posting this message to sort it out. Go to The Perseus Guard and scroll down to Update May 16.
Also, exclusive to the ground force, the SC alignment scheme for the Perseus Guard with instructions can be found by scrolling down to Update 16th May on Operation Medusa.
Wednesday 13th May 2020: Heads up to Staff and Visitors. Like any great spectacle of art and power, Operation Medusa comes with a few warm-up acts to prime the excitement of the audience. Take four minutes to enjoy this clip of Bharata Natyam, traditional Indian dance. The style is a form of exorcism, derived from ancient maternal cults of Shri Vidya, the traditional cultural source of the Shakti Cluster. The Shiva theme establishes the presence and potency of Thelete, Sophia’s consort in the coming act of power to be invoked by the intervention call.
The three dancers who come out as one, a triple goddess with six arms, show you in gesture and movement the precise dynamic of Sophia’s intervention. It involves a three-field or three-factor impact — to be explained in the third stage, May 17 – 22. We are currently in stage two, Alignment.
Raga is the Hindu word for passion, rage, or outrage. In Indian music and dance, there are nine “raga moods” which set the tone and acoustic range for a raga to be played on sitar or sarod. (Sarod music is the ultimate Tantric medium in music. For instance, Sindhu Bharavi, a raga or raag dedicated to Bhairavi, She Who Terrifies, 6 in the Shakti Cluster.) In her act of intervention, Sophia engages and discharges all nine of these moods, deployed into a four set and a five set. The meticulous precision of her power display is a matter of awe and delight to her Shaktas. The art of Planetary Tantra requires observing what she does with precision to match what she does.
Note the strong mudras and the precision of the steps. There is a three-beat emphasis, tah-tah-tah. Exactly so, there is a three-point mantra for the ritual, performed when stamping the feet. Stamping is of course a shamanic technique that often comes into play in a telestic session as the rush comes on. Operation Medusa is a telestic rite of invocation of the powers of the Aeonic Mother which she releases in a three-field blast.

AMBER ALERT to Staff and Visitors
Day 1 of Alignment for Operation Medusa. Here is the SC app prepped for the event.
This ritual relies on the concentration of the “Gaian Five” powers concentrated in the florette of the Shakti Cluster, also called the Vajra Star. It has a pentagrammic form typical of indigenous earth magic but charged with exceptional properties. The first step in alignment is to add the charge of your attention to the charge held by the florette, the dynamic grid of earth mother powers. Registered guests do so in one way, staff in the ground force do so in another way. Instructions to follow.
For alignment, guests do not have to master the components in the entire oval of the SC: you simply contemplate the five points of the florette, the G-5. They represent the five Diamond Sky Dakinis. You do not have to learn their names by heart, but it is not difficult — imagine a shopping list of five items. Reflect on those names and the powers associated with them. And keep checking The Menhir for updates.
Stage Two for alignment runs May 11 -16. JLL
Saturday May 9th 2020: New text in 6 Living Myth: 6 The Perseus Guard
Staff take note of new material added to Operation Medusa (+ Florette Names video link), scroll down to MED-3 Cueing.
Friday May 8th 2020: Special alert to registered guests at Nemeta. There is a unit of text and talk in the curriculum panel of 16 Planetary Tantra titled Monitoring Operation Medusa, directed specifically to guests who may opt to participate in the upcoming Gaian Tantric ritual of intervention. There is also a thread on the PT forum for discussions relative to Operation Medusa. This material comes out in the first of three stages: Prepping May 5 – 10. Follow-up guidelines and instructions will be posted in the second and third stages.
Wednesday 6th May 2020: On release today a new unit in 18 Breaking Nous: Operation Medusa. Going forward during this month, this unit will present developing material, including specific instructions for the counter-strike against the pandemic deception.
The Operation falls into three stages: Prepping May 5 – 10, in progress > Alignment May 11 – 16 > Invocation May 17 – 22, concluding this shift. There will be a second shift of Tara/Bhudevi, D1 on May 23.
At this tremendous moment, JLL extends his gratitude to loyal members who are signing on to this mission on the Members Forum thread provided, and welcomes new members who are coming into the adventure as the excitement peaks. Additional to the above unit, he will be offering supplementary content in talk and text to support the Operation. Doing so, especially in the unit titled “Monitoring Operation Medusa,” he will give special attention to the orientation of newcomers so that they can get up to speed with veteran Shaktas. He will also open a PT Forum thread on this event.

Tuesday 5th May 2020: AMBER ALERT TO ALL STAFF: I have posted a thread in the Member’s Forum to signal staff to an event in preparation, and to invite participation as witnesses and allies in commanding the power of the Aeonic Mother. Title: Staff Sign-On Booth.
The purpose of the thread is to have members sign on to confirm participation in the event, not to discuss or debate it, although short comments may be appropriate. All you need to do is post and say you’re including yourself. That way I can know exactly who stands “locked and loaded” in the ground force over the next three weeks as this event goes live.
Of course, you can’t comment on the event at this moment, May 5, as you don’t yet know what it is! Here is the preview: The command and control unit of the gnostic ground force, led by the nagual, is poised to conduct a cording ritual with the intention… Read more in the Forum.
Clue: It involves the third nail.

Wednesday 29th April 2020: Two new units available to staff members in 2 Sophianic Cosmology and 18 Breaking Nous:
April 2020 School Activity now archived to The Menhir’s curriculum units:The Menhir April 2020
Introduction to The Menhir, Continued:
Notifications sent out via the Mailing List to both Members and Subscribers will also inform you of these ongoing activities. This page mirrors those periodic announcements by email and in some cases alerts you to new content, be it talk or text, that gets omitted from the announcements due to the rapidity and fluidity of John’s ongoing efforts to amplify the curricula, refine and reframe the content, and provide clear and “simplific” direction for your studies.
Announcements at the Menhir consistently track progressing content throughout the School and in 16. Planetary Tantra, free to all. It will also signal content on 18. Breaking Nous, and 17. The Terma and the Terton, available to Members only.
The sacred groves where the Mysteries were originally performed were sanctuaries of natural beauty where rocks and mineral formations were carefully observed. There might be a special rock at the boundary of the sanctuary, as there was a “stepping stone” on Infinity Ridge:
There it was a flat stone (barely visible in this photo) on the left at the base of the wild olive standing offside the welcome grove. When you stepped on it you formally entered the ritual space of the Ridge, then proceeding through the gracious arboreal corridor to the Devi Tree. (Sierra del Hacho, Andalucia. Sierra de Libar to the right, northwest)
In many cases, sacred stone markers were erected in the wild sanctuaries. A single standing stone was called a menhir (Brythonic maen, “stone” and hir, “long”). An arresting geomagnetic marker in the force field of the nemeton, the menhir had acoustic properties as well. Touching it, you could hear differently. Sitting in contact with it would deepen the shaman’s reach into the Nagual. It also served as a geodetic marker for placing the local site in the setting of seasonal cycles, aligned to the solstices and equinoxes, the cross-quarter days, and the rising and setting of prominent stars. Hence, it was a multi-purpose tool of orientation.
It is advisable to check the Menhir for orientation on Nemeta from time to time. Below you will find entries listed in reverse chronological order, most recent at top for easy access. This list will grow and morph in the course of each month. At the completion of each month, the activity recorded will be archived in the curriculum panel: “ARCHIVES”
One final word: I do wish to keep Nemeta supplied with occasional fresh input, additional to what it requires of me to maintain the burgeoning structure, the ongoing organization of the Blocks, editing, revision, etc. But I can only do what I can do, and as it pleases me… Time is at premium for me now and I have undertaken a writing project, the consummation of my life’s work and the closing revelation of my mystic journey.
