Randall Fontes to Plant Sensitivity Research
"It was while on a 1971 visit to India to see Muktananda that Fontes asked an astrologer what was in his future.
"He said I would be a scientist relating the physical to the metaphysical," Fontes said. "He said that in 1976 I would be world famous because of my work."
When Fontes returned, he got a call from a friend who told him about Marcel Vogel, a San Jose man doing research on plants and telepathy.
looked at me and said, 'Oh, you're the guy who's going to continue my work,'''
Fontes said. He packed up Vogel's equipment and set it up at Sonoma State
College, where he and Swanson were both going to school." (The
Daily Review Friday, August 5, 1977)
his Cabin to us as a Laboratory
"Randall and Bob, soon to receive degrees in psychology and India studies, plan to seek masters' degrees and to continue their research. They are applying for private grants for equipment and to support themselves while doing the research. Most of this will be carried on at what they feel is better conditions at Marcel Vogel's summer place on the Russian River." (The Press Democrat Sunday, September 31, 1972)

Journey into The Play of Light
The Play of Light is about the Beauty of Light, of Sound and of Form. As each of these is deeply resonant with the other, the underlying unity that they share is revealed within their dance; and can be realized through direct experience. Within this experience, the mind becomes still and spontaneous Meditation arises. I have developed this technique over a period of 45 years, and this is as effortless and joyful a path into meditation as I am aware of.
