Hi Shocked, everyone...
Finally found a moment to share what took place regarding that JZK / RSE birthday celebration - circa RSE 1988-89?.
This may be a long post. Up until that time I had always intended to return to RSE after quitting in 1996. During that time I still ‘believed’ in 'Ramtha' but remained confused and disillusioned not only with the failed teachings and totally contradictory, dictatorial and uncompassionate behavior of JZ Knight and her insiders, somehow wasn’t ready to face the truth that ‘Ramtha’ was a fraud. So around 1998-99 I was invited to organize a live music tribute event to celebrate JZ Knights birthday. This was to be a big surprise for JZK.
I reasoned that despite my deep dislike of her personally, I would do this to thank her for channeling 'Ramtha'.
I saw this as a ‘runner’ from my great teacher to let go of judgments and rejoin my school
So far so good.
Even though I was no longer a ‘current student' I was given an open door by a wealthy RSE insider to organize the music and musicians of my choice for what was suppose to be a spectacular outdoor event with a live band.
There was also the dance group (Black and Tans), Andalusian horses and a play written and directed by a close friend.
All participants were paid to perform. I was given FULL CONTROL (and if my memory serves me correct) about six weeks to organize with live rehearsals. The creative energy and excitement was wonderful, my faith in 'Ramtha' was rekindled.
By that time I had understood the destructive effects of the ‘wine ceremonies’ during recording the RSE choir in my studio. so... to safeguarded against this happening all musicians were promised not to drink during the performance.
Several weeks before the event I was told my sound engineer was to be replaced (on the night) with RSE staffer Kenny Thompson. Anyone who understands live music production, the sound engineer is a critical member.
Kenny refused to attend rehearsals (apparent he was an expert and didn't need to be bothered)
he insisted he had the experience but the man oozed RSE arrogance, I was given no choice.
I don’t have time to go into all details but the disastrous collapse began the moment the event started, I should have walked away but felt obligated to stay for all those that had worked so hard during rehearsals, this was their moment to shine and have a great event.
The celebrations begins...
I arranged and choreographed an honor procession for JZ Knight made up of drummers, dancers and a piper.
A colorful and fun pagan procession that began outside JZKs home. This was pre arranged with James Flick...
we would gather in the Rose Garden at a given time and on hearing our pipes and drums James would escort JZ outside to where we would all joyously meet and march to the tank field. So far so good....
On arriving at the Rosé garden we formed a circle and began playing to call out JZ Knight, within minutes a very angry
RSE insider (an short blond Australian woman) told us to get the hell away from JZ’s house. No amount of reason could persuade her this had been pre arranged with James, GO AND CHECK...in fact, she became more abusive and began shouting, I suspected she was drunk. Also remember we had children in our circle.
With that moment crushed, we reassembled away from the house hoping James could hear us. Unfortunately by the time James appeared with JZ (both had been drinking) we were already exhausted from playing for 30 minutes, our piper needed a rest, when we finally reached the main stage we were exhausted. To cut a long story short.. Kenny botched the sound, The RSE lighting man botched the lights (drugs,) The musicians got drunk, the finally of the play ( something to do with the Sun God Ra) was hijacked by an RSE insider and redirected so the ending was a form of worship to JZ Knight sitting on her throne, I was aghast as was the plays creator and director. The event was no more than a drunkfest party.
BUT…what far outweighed a botched up creation was my final curtain at RSE..I understood that ‘Ramtha’ was no more than a twisted fraud concocted from JZ Knights fear, greed and insatiable egos. I HAD to move on.
It took me another five years to process the reality that RSE was a cult and to coherently to speak out.
I also understood how kindred spirits have their honor and passion stripped away at RSE leaving little but an empty shell sucked dry by a religious sociopath.
Does anyone here remember attending that JZK birthday RSE event?
