Charles T. Tart, Ph.D., is internationally known for his psychological work on the nature of consciousness (particularly altered states of consciousness), as one of the founders of the field of transpersonal psychology, and for his research in scientific parapsychology. His two classic books, Altered States of Consciousness (1969) and Transpersonal Psychologies (1975), became widely used texts that were instrumental in allowing these areas to become part of modern psychology.

He is currently Professor Emeritus of Psychology at the University of California,at Davis, where he served for 28 years, as well as a Core Faculty Member at the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology (Palo Alto, California) and a Senior Research Fellow of the Institute of Noetic Sciences (Sausalito, California). He was the first holder of the Bigelow Chair of Consciousness Studies at the University of Nevada in Las Vegas and has served as a Visiting Professor in East-West Psychology at the California Institute of Integral Studies, as an Instructor in Psychiatry at the School of Medicine of the University of Virginia, and a consultant on government funded parapsychological research at the Stanford Research Institute (now known as SRI International).

As well as a laboratory researcher, Professor Tart has been a student of the Japanese martial art of Aikido (in which he holds a black belt), of meditation, of Gurdjieff's work, of Buddhism, and of other psychological and spiritual growth disciplines. His primary goal is to build bridges between the scientific and spiritual communities and to help bring about a refinement and integration of Western and Eastern approaches for knowing the world and for personal and social growth.

The Windstar Land Conservancy

John Denver was grateful that his long-held dream of assuring the protection of the Windstar land in perpetuity was accomplished, in partnership with the Rocky Mountain Institute, in the fall of 1996 with the creation of the Windstar Land Conservancy. The Windstar land, nearly one thousand acres located in the Colorado High Country in Old Snowmass, has been the historic home of the Windstar Foundation. At the time of the Conservancy's creation, John Denver said, "It is important to keep some of the remaining wild places on Earth alive and in good health for generations to come. I welcome the increased protection that the creation of the Windstar Land Conservancy will provide for this particular area in Colorado, and hope our actions serve as an inspiration to others to take similar steps." The Windstar Land Conservancy is an independent not-for-profit research and education organization.

"Centering is "the zone" spoken of by great athletes. It can also be a barefoot run on the grass on a summer's eve, with the wind in your face and the senses wide open ... It is like a delicate flower growing out of solid rock. Center can be a cosmic laugh rippling out to the ends of the universe. It can be simply relaxing in rush-hour traffic. Center is returning home. It is always a choice we can make."

The Hunger Project is a strategic organization and global movement committed to the sustainable end of world hunger. In Africa, Asia and Latin America, it empowers local people to create lasting society-wide progress in health, education, nutrition and family incomes. It uses a two-prong strategy: mobilizing grassroots self-reliant action, and mobilizing local leadership to clear away obstacles to enable grassroots action to succeed. The highest priority in all activity is the empowerment of women. Women bear responsibility for family health, education and nutrition - yet, by tradition, culture and law they are denied the means, information and freedom of action to fulfill their responsibility. The Hunger Project is committed to transforming this condition.

"Heaven above was blue, and earth beneath was green; the river glistened like a path of diamonds in the sun; the birds poured forth their songs from the shady trees; the lark soared high above the waving corn; and the deep buzz of insects filled the air."

Mission Statement
1999 Sandy Ostertag

Long View Media

In 1994, John Denver and Sandy Ostertag created West Star Productions, Inc. to produce a documentary film series called "Reunion, Mind & Nature". Programs were being developed that would explore the complex relationship between deliberate human activities and the often unexpected consequences these activities have on society and the environment. Fund raising for "Reunion" was just beginning when John was tragically killed in a plane accident in October of 1997. At that time, West Star Productions was filming, "John Denver, Let This Be A Voice" which was completed a year later and broadcast on the PBS/Nature series. Recently, Sandy has organized Long View Media, a nonprofit corporation, to carry on the work they began.

Long View Media produces educational motion pictures that genuinely inform and inspire individuals to become actively involved in the personal and social changes necessary to create a peaceful and environmentally sustainable future for our world.

Television is an extraordinary form of communication that reaches millions of individuals regardless of social or geographic boundaries. We believe that viewers are starved for in-depth, intelligent answers to unsettling questions raised by rapidly changing technologies and a growing human population. Complex topics like starvation, war, endangered species and nuclear waste are often conveyed in brief sound and picture "bytes" that may evoke emotion, but rarely inform. Much of the apathy we see in modern society comes in reaction to this confusing barrage of fractured and often negative information.

We have developed an informative and entertaining program style that will explore these diverse topics and always, by following a chain of connections, link them to individual viewers. By joining seemingly unrelated subjects in unexpected ways, we deepen our awareness of how we are fundamentally related to all things in the world - whether an Australian bushman, a snail, or Albert Einstein.

The goal of Long View Media is to produce programs that will provide the knowledge needed by individuals to make educated choices that protect the environment and promote world peace. People take care of what they understand.
