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

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 22nd May 2019: Heads up, staff and guests! Recently in a Dakini Weather Watch report (for staff) I reported on the Jupiter loop. This is an event you can all witness given the sky is clear at some moment in the evening wherever you are. Earth is currently overtaking Jupiter and making a close pass. As it does so, Jupiter rises in the east after sunset, earlier and earlier. On June 11 it rises in the east at the moment of sunset. You will have all evening to observe it, going on for a couple of months. I encourage you all to try to set eyes on Jupiter. Use the app or consult an astronomical sky-viewing site to help you, if need be.

Making physical eye contact with Jupiter at this moment will, I assure you, bring something powerful into your field of attention.

In the DWW report I noted a meticulous detail concerning the behavior of Jupiter this year. Namely, it crosses a field-line that locks together the dynamics of earth, Jupiter, and the sun.  That field-line is specifically the south solar equatorial intersect with the orbital plane of the earth. Its location is 15 Sagittarius ECL 255 which places it in the constellation of the SCORPION-SNAKETAMER. Although that point is invisible, you can observe when Jupiter reaches it with the naked eye. I urge everyone to try to do so.

Remember that in PT Jupiter represents Thelete, the Aeonic counterpart to Sophia, the Planetary Animal Mother. Sophia and Thelete designed you. Thelete/Jupiter now works closely with Sophia/earth for the event of Correction. I can identify three key moments in that interaction for you all to observe:

June 11: Jupiter opposite the sun, visible as a massive bright star-like object rising in the east after sunset

July 26: Jupiter crosses the intercept line, in retrograde

August 28: Jupiter again crosses the intercept line, direct

Mark these three dates on your calendar. In August at the close of the sequence, Jupiter will appear already high in the sky overhead at sunset.

You do not have to understand technically what the south solar equatorial intersect with the orbital plane of the earth (ecliptic) is. What you do have to know is that this interaction massively impacts the magnetosphere, the magnetic field of the earth. Massive changes in the magnetosphere will effect the weather world-wide and also effect all life forms on the level of biopsychic activity, due to all life being embedded in the magnetic field. The opportunity for sudden, catastrophic change comes through the effect of Jupiter as force-multiplier assisting with these telluric changes to achieve the optimal conditions for Correction. The “catastrophic” effects are both good and bad: advantageous for Correction and harmful toward what impedes it. Keep that formula in mind.

I am writing this unusual message today and placing it on the Menhir as a measure of alert. I just learned that current readings of the magnetosphere in the month since Jupiter turned retrograde, veering toward the intersect plane, show an unparalleled and violent oscillation of the north magnetic pole. Consider this:

Modern records indicate that the north magnetic pole shifted about 685 miles over the last 150 years. That’s an average of about 4.5 miles a year. Recent measurements show it moving at 25 miles per year to the northwest. This increase is of course huge, a magnification by 5 — but wait, it gets better. The increase from 4.5 miles per year to 25 caught the attention of those who monitor these matters. So, for a while now, you may have heard a lot of chatter about the destabilization of the earth’s magnetic field.

In the last month the compilation of magnetometer readings taken every 1/3 second shows that the magnetic north pole has shifted 250 miles in a month. It was moving 25 miles per year, or 2 miles a month, when it caught special attention from the experts: picture the vibration of a tower like a radio mast, starting to tremble slightly. Scientists took note. Imagine what they are thinking now as they track the shift at 250 miles in a single month! That is an increase by a figure of 125. The acceleration of “pole shift” is thus 125 times faster right now. That is like accelerating from 5 mph to 625 in one third of a second of Sophia’s time (1 second = 108 days).

Now picture the radio mast lashing wildly in the wind. The actual variance from major oscillation to the west to minor oscillation to the east is about 5 degrees of the earth’s surface. This is an immense perturbation.

So far I have not come across any experts who are linking this aberration to Jupiter, so you are the first to be alerted. Stay on watch and keep your eyes peeled for events due to occur, both in the actual weather and in the social weather or biopsychic activity of the human species. I can assure you with some confidence that the three dates indicated will match up closely with critical events that will be reported. Events it will be impossible to ignore or conceal.

Correction: The mp3 file for “A Sheaf of Cut Wheat” has an anomaly at the start. There is a blurring of content with “The Tragedy of the Mother,” a different talk. Don’t know how this happened. Up to minute 8m 50s, the audio presents part of a talk from somewhere else, then the reading corresponding to the text comes after that point, at 12m where JLL introduces the text on “A Sheaf of Cut Wheat.” From 40m or so, the audio does not follow the text provided here. Then again, there is an anomaly in the audio: at 1h 8m it repeats the opening remarks! You see the teacher toggling between exposition of the Sheaf of Wheat and the Tragedy of the Mother, a separate and independent talk from July 2015. The point is, you can disregard the last 98 minutes of the audio which repeat the first eight minutes.

Text and talk are rather a jumble, alas, but nevertheless all parts are coherent in the takeaway.

On any given day, I am running Nemeta on four Macs, three open screens, sorting through 500 or so units, selecting audio files, and preparing updates and new talks, side by side with Ceridwen the Admin who on her own commandeers a few work stations as well, not to mention her immense task as librarian for the Ambergane Estate. And, by the way, I am in the process of writing a book proposal for a seminal work on the leading social problem of this moment, Communism. At moments I do lose track of which side of my mouth I am using to chew gum. – jll


Sunday 19th May 2019:

14 Celestics Vocation Landing Page now updated, plus a new unit What’s In It For You added to the curriculum, available to members AND guests. PLEASE NOTE: In this special instance, a unit that belongs to Course 14 Celestics for members has to be accessed via the curriculum panel for 16 Planetary Tantra. So, do this:

1 go to the landing page of Planetary Tantra,

2 click “start Course” or “continue course” as usual,

3 scroll down to the panel and find Current Shift,

4 click the first unit there: INTRO to Celestics: What’s In It For you. That way guests can also access this document.


6 Biomysticism: Two units added to Biomysticism Course 9:

A Sheaf of Cut Wheat presents a refutation of Karl Pribram’s hologram theory of reality and repises some essential material from Not in His Image on the Mysteries of Eleusis.

Instruction By The Light is a continuation of the preceding unit with the addition of current writing. NOTE: In this unit JLL presents for the first time some precise indications regarding the experience of ecstatic trance and how to handle it. A section of this unit can be found in the PT Forum under the title, Cognitive Ecstasy. The disclosures here are unique to the Nagual of Infinity Ridge. Nothing comparable to this instruction exists so far in this moment of Kali Yuga.

* You may want to review the second unit as some editing and addition occurred since this notice was posted. It now concludes with the image of the Snaketamer and some lines from the Astronomia of Manilius (1st C CE).


The search function in Nemeta is now in operation! Click on the spyglass icon, type in your word, and click enter.


The Ambergane Library: Taking four years in total to complete the task of cataloging, JLL’s library of 4,400+ books is finally complete and loaded to an online library ( is not recommended!) If you want to peruse where parts of your education from JLL’s self-scholarship spring, you can now view it online. Use the “folder” menu at the top left hand side of screen to view by genre, author, etc:

New text on 16 Planetary Tantra, available to all: Essential Intel For Witnesses of Correction, Relative to the Bhudevi/Tara Shift 2019:

16 Correction and Selection


Sunday 5th May

Bhudevi Shift 2019

D1 of the Bhudevi shift. Monday evening , D2, the sunset crescent will appear in the BULL, near Aldebaran, marking the Bull’s Eye. The crescent will eventually appear close (on the left) to Mars which currently makes its way between the tips of the horns of the BULL.

Please note: The landing page for 16 Planetary Tantra is currently under revision. Rather than set it on private, I have left it public in order not to block access to the wealth of material accessed via the curriculum panel on that page. JLL

I remind all guests as well as staff that the content of is in migration to Nemeta for reorganization, revision, editing, etc., where most of it will be accessible only to staff. However, consistent with my wish that Planetary Tantra (the “package” of the Terma of Gaia Awakening) maintains the status of  “open source,” free of charge to the world at large, the PT area of is still accessible. For instance, for this shift you might want to review this material.

BULL: Bhuvaneshvari and Tara

Please note that this material goes back ten years and is unedited, straight as it came on raw feed DI. If you click on Dakini Calender on the menu tree in the left hand column of the PT landing page, you will see that the full list of  shifts and the overseeing devatas is incomplete. There is however relevant material on other shifts scattered here and there throughout the site. My intention is to organize the intel on dakini shifts sequentially and fill out the complete list, which will appear in the curriculum panel as a set of units under the title 16.103 Gallery of the Devatas.

For right now, the original text from (linked above) appears in duplicate as unit 16.103.4 Bhuvaneshvari Tara in the curriculum panel you see when scrolling down the landing page for Planetary Tantra. Bhuvaneshvari is the long form of the name Bhudevi, “earth goddess.,” modality 4 in the Shakti Cluster.

So, it you might pause for a moment, and consider what’s involved in reaching the goal of organization of the full content of PT which is free to all guests on the campus of Nemeta. May I presume that it is more than obvious that the task of compilation, organization, editing, and revision of that core material, merely on its own, would have to occupy one dedicated student for a considerable time.  Were I myself to launch into that task today and stay engaged exclusively with it, it would take me, I’m guessing,  at least three weeks to complete. I don’t have three weeks to spare for that particular undertaking.

Needless to say, to keep Nemeta up and running, complete the remaining three 101 Blocks, add new content, occasionally reply in forums, and so on… well, the situation does not afford me the luxury of delving into this material and dancing my way through the Gallery of the Devatas right now. Patience, children…

Festina Lente. “Make haste slowly.”

Floating tensegrity:


April School Activity now archived to The Menhir’s curriculum units:

The Menhir April 2019

If the internal links do not work for you, read “Important Notice” below.



Due to the infrastructure of the WP platform of Nemeta, members cannot access “units” by internal links we provide on The Menhir, unless the material is posted directly on a landing page of a course. We will however continue to provide the links, as they work for some members, and not others.

It is advisable for full members of Nemeta to visit the relevant course landing page that the new upload to the school is on, notified in The Menhir i.e. And They Pretend to Pray 18 Breaking Nous, Mantique block.

  1. Go to course landing page
  2. Scroll down the page to the course curriculum
  3. Find the block the new unit is in, click on the new unit to access it.



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.

  1. Welcome To Planetary Tantra


    Two excellent MP3’s for orientation as to a core practice and a core comprehension. Much appreciation for the work the team is doing here at Nemeta.
