This is Jeff’s wife, Jeanie, writing… wanting to let those of you who have followed Jeff’s work know that he is now even more effective at clearing physiological, psychological and spiritual issues, should you be able to accept that…
Jeff died May 23, 2021 from the 3rd recurrence of a meningioma. For the last 8 years of his life, from the second recurrence and subsequent surgery, he has lived, worked and written from a wheelchair, severely restricted from normal movement. Yet, these years have been filled with deep inquiry and writing about the power of intention to shift human beings toward a greater truth and reality.
When Jeff died, he had largely completed a new book of essays, ‘The Gift of Self,’ to which I wrote a Foreword and from which the following paragraphs have come:
“There was a magic about how these 8 years have completed themselves. At the end of April 2021 our daughter Ariel married her Matthew, and Jeff spent valuable time with most of his close family. Two weeks later, he had a major seizure, and 11 days later he died.
For 3 weeks after Jeff’s transition, Ariel, Matthew and I all experienced an incredibly tangible field of love, as though in sloughing off the body, Jeff had released an enormous amount of loving energy. Although grief could arise at any moment (we let it), I found myself easily taking care of details and traveling to reconnect with family and friends. It was as though Jeff was now emanating a love field that was helping me take certain steps toward my own evolution.
In this time since Jeff’s death, I’ve found myself drawn to the writings of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, the Jesuit priest-paleontologist, whose words inspired me as I worked to finalize Jeff’s book. According to Teilhard, human civilization is being ‘psychically compressed’ into a new phase of evolution as it complexifies, global population increases, and communication technologies connect us up. We can’t see what’s happening well because it is ‘becoming’ with every act, word and thought that human beings contribute; it is NEW. Just as there was an evolutionary ‘jump’ from matter to living forms (including us) on Earth, Teilhard argues that we ‘human molecules’ are now in process of evolving into another phase of existence. His term for this phase is the noosphere or the thinking layer of Earth.
When Jeff died, I ‘saw’ that he was now a center of Being in the noosphere, where in contrast to most physical beings on Earth, individuated centers can exist without boundaries. Jeff was joining an infinite number of other centers already birthed into the noosphere through the death/birth process, to participate in One Field of Earth Consciousness, Teilhard’s noosphere.
I seem to know that this multi-centered field of unity is part of what’s happening on our planet, and it brings me hope. Whenever I look at Jeff’s picture, taken 5 months before his death, I can still feel his centered presence within an infinite expansion of love.
And I invite others drawn to his work to reach toward that ‘tincture of Jeff’ that is still alive and emanating, to invite his ‘energy lift’ in support of their own path toward Truth and Love.”
