EDAR (Everyone Deserves A Roof) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides unique mobile shelters to homeless men, women and children.

An EDAR is a four-wheeled unit, based on a cart design that provides security for belongings, privacy and protection from the elements. During the day, the EDAR is a compact portable unit with sturdy wheels and waterproof protection. The steering is maneuverable and there is a brake and locking mechanism which ensures the unit will not move on its own.

At night, the EDAR opens up easily into "night mode" and provides a comfortable sleeping unit. Unfolding the unit allows it to lock in place as the flat metal base extends. The metal base has a removable mattress and fire resistant cover, providing tent-like shelter. The unit is waterproof, windproof and helps protect from the elements. There is a window that provides light, ventilation and a view of the surrounding area. By refolding the unit into "day mode", the EDAR quickly returns to its compact design and can be pushed around as a cart for use during the day.

We currently have units serving homeless individuals in Southern CA, and in the communities of Phoenix, AZ, Denver, CO and Camden, NJ. With the help of our generous supporters we are able to place additional units in Southern California and continue to expand to cities nationwide.

Reduced Prison Populations Can Mean Better Public Safety

The following op-ed originally appeared in USA Today.

The U.S. Supreme Court's ruling on California prisons provides the state's policymakers with the opportunity to correct misguided sentencing policies and, in the process, to produce more effective public safety outcomes.

Since 1980, California has developed a bloated prison population for two key reasons. First, the state's punitive sentencing policies such as "three strikes and you're out" have produced such bizarre outcomes as an offender serving 25 years to life for stealing three golf clubs. And second, California leads the nation in sending offenders back to prison for violations of parole, many for technical reasons, such as failing a drug test, rather than a new crime.

On Releasing the Fear

Peace Exoconsciousness is the extraterrestrial (ETI) science of love from the heart, the 21st Century mind, linking Earth and its citizens directly to multi-verses.

As a hypnotherapist who specializes in trauma, I ask clients an empowering question:  “Do you, or have you ever, felt safe?”

Frequently the question is met with a blank stare and silence. We sit quietly as the question marinates into consciousness. Patiently we wait for an answer to form.

When it finally emerges, the answer often stumbles and tumbles. “Ah…No…I would say I have never felt safe. Well…maybe once or twice. But, no I do not feel safe.”

Then my countenance breaks into the smile of knowing and I respond. “Yes, I remember when I, too, was asked that question. I was stunned by my answer. Stunned at the realization that other people felt safe and I did not. How could that be?”

It was a realization that forced me to embrace the extent of my fear and the depth of my vulnerability. I knew change was gonna come. And it did.

When the blinders were pulled off my mind, I admitted fear. Stripped bare, I was forced to make an empowering move out of my mind, into my heart. And then, through my heart into my entire body and Being.

The vibration I discovered on my voyage out of the harbor of Fear was Love.  Love of self, of others, of Planet Earth, of multiverses.

Exoconsciousness is the study and practice of the extraterrestrial origins, dimensions and abilities of human consciousness.

We humans are identified, engaged and empowered with extraterrestrial intelligence, living in a conscious universe. As humans, we possess the extraterrestrial passport to navigate multiverses.

We need not be an astronaut or a scientist.

We gain our multiverse passport when we release the fear and vulnerability of our confinement in trauma and isolation. Then our minds, bodies, and spirits connect to an extraterrestrial consciousness with whom we are One.

Our trauma dissolves. Our fear disappears. Our vulnerability subsides.
