American Visionary Arts Museum (AVAM) exhibits five original artworks by Dr. Bob Hieronimus

One of the pieces by Jimi Hendrix that Dr. Bob especially requested for this show because it includes the pyramid and the eye in the triangle, the symbol on the reverse of the U.S. Great Seal that he and Hendrix talked about together in 1968. Photo by Stuart Zolotorow.

Part of the newest exhibit “The Visionary Experience: Saint Francis to Finster” open from October 4, 2014 through August 31, 2015.

Dr. Bob Hieronimus was asked to provide five of his original artworks to be on display at the American Visionary Arts Museum (AVAM). The exhibit is called “The Visionary Experience: Saint Francis to Finster” and runs from October 4, 2014 through August 31, 2015.

Dr. Bob was instrumental in obtaining the artworks of Jimi Hendrix for this exhibit, through his relationship with Jimi’s sister Janie Hendrix. There are five Hendrix pieces on exhibit (some never before seen) and five Hieronimus pieces on exhibit, and both include self portraits!

Read all about the AVAM exhibit with Dr. Bob's and Jimi Hendrix's artworks here...

They also asked him to write a series of “10 Things You Didn’t Know” about the “Founding Fathers” and their visions that will be spread around the museum as wall art. Click here to read them all.

Brooklyn Chef Counter Take Root Is Small And Mighty: Review

Photographer: Dominic Perri/Bloomberg

Restaurant kitchens require a certain amount of manpower to run, so unless you’re popping over to his house, the chef isn’t really the one cooking dinner for you. It’s the chef plus many hands -- cooks who arrive early to wash, peel, and chop, prep all day, and cook through service, staying late to scrub down the kitchen and take stock of the walk in.

There are few exceptions to this rule. You’ll find one in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn, where the married couple Elise Kornack (back of house) and Anna Hieronimus (front of house) have a 12-seat restaurant called Take Root. Kornack, who is 27, has no prep cook, no dishwasher, no intern to pick and wash herbs, no sous chef to put out the fires. The kitchen is hers alone and what comes out of it can be marvelous.

Earth may have underground ‘ocean’ three times that on surface

Scientists say rock layer hundreds of miles down holds vast amount of water, opening up new theories on how planet formed

After decades of searching scientists have discovered that a vast reservoir of water, enough to fill the Earth’s oceans three times over, may be trapped hundreds of miles beneath the surface, potentially transforming our understanding of how the planet was formed.

The water is locked up in a mineral called ringwoodite about 660km (400 miles) beneath the crust of the Earth, researchers say. Geophysicist Steve Jacobsen from Northwestern University in the US co-authored the study published in the journal Science and said the discovery suggested Earth’s water may have come from within, driven to the surface by geological activity, rather than being deposited by icy comets hitting the forming planet as held by the prevailing theories.

Scientists know what's killing our bees and putting our food supply at risk: An insecticide called "neonics." But one Big Ag giant has actually asked the EPA to let it use up to 4,000% MORE of this deadly toxin! This could cripple our food supply! The EPA is taking public comments on this issue until October 6, and is required to consider them all. I took 30 seconds to submit mine, asking the EPA to suspend this chemical rather than allowing even more -- will you join me? Together, we can make a difference!

Happy 45th Anniversary to Woodstock! What Woodstock Means to Me

by Dr. Bob Hieronimus, Ph.D.

Ultimately, I believe the legacy of Woodstock is in the original name for the festival: It was called “An Aquarian Exposition”. Woodstock was the seed for the revolutionary idea that humans could rise to the occasion, overcome all kinds of obstacles of the most fundamental sort, and still hang in there and work together. It was living proof that human beings are more than just physical bodies, and that we possess something within us of a higher consciousness and awareness. Click here for full article and an overview of the 2009 six-part, 10-hour radio series about Woodstock on 21st Century Radio.

Seven Awards won at Cannes Film Festival by VW’s Goodbye to the Kombi Bus, prominently featuring Dr. Bob Hieronimus and his Iconic Woodstock Bus



Dr. Bob and Zohara enjoyed entertaining the film crew from Brazil that visited in February of 2014 to interview Bob about his Woodstock Bus memories.

Welcome to Dogwood Farm’s 2014 Organic Garden

Our sizeable garden on Dogwood Farm first grew out of a meditation I had in 2008, which showed me the importance of growing more than a back door garden patch, something I had always maintained. Why? Simply to see what it would take to be somewhat more self-sufficient. The answer, of course, as any gardener knows, or farmers who have lived for millennium working the earth know: it takes a lot of labor, determination, dedication, consistency, humility and energy -- not to mention financial resources -- to create a thriving garden.

See Dr. Bob on the History-2 ("H-2") Channel Mid-August on the Season 3 Premiere of "Ten Things You Didn't Know About...The U.S. Flag" with Henry Rollins

Dr. Bob will appear in the premiere episode of the third season of "10 Things You Don't Know About" hosted by Henry Rollins on the H-2 channel August 16th at 10 PM Eastern. This episode is about who designed the American Flag. It was not Betsey Ross! It was Francis Hopkinson, the only artist to sign the Declaration of Independence. The U.S. Flag has been a particular passion of Bob Hieronimus for decades and he has written extensively about its history and symbolism as well as created numerous pieces of art about the flag.

See the "Our Flag As Cosmic Drama" essay here.

See more about the show at History.com

Filming for "10 Things You Don't Know About" took place at the National Archives in Washington, D.C. where Bob was thrilled to see and touch the actual documents and invoices Hopkinson submitted to Congress proving he is the designer of our flag. Read more online...

Graham Nash Interviewed by Dr. Bob Hieronimus

Photo by Stuart Zolotorow

“I enjoy being on 21st Century Radio with my friend, Dr. Bob Hieronimus because we need people who are putting the truth in front of our faces. We need leaders. We need great voices on the radio, and Dr. Bob is one of them.”

All that follows are direct quotes from Graham Nash’s appearance on 21st Century Radio® with Dr. Bob Hieronimus on November 4, 2012 when they reviewed “The Art of Graham Nash” exhibit in NYC.

“Global warming: It is a very touchy subject. There has been an incredible crusade of climate deniers that are ruling the airwaves and leading people to believe that it’s inconclusive science, that it’s all poppycock, that it’s just not true. And I believe those people will be seen in the future as incredible obstacles to waking up to the fact that our climate is changing.

And don’t forget it’s not just Exxon or the oil companies. It’s the Koch Brothers, and the other billionaires that have holdings in making money from the environment in coal and uranium. The oil companies are a large part of the problem, but they are only a part of the problem. The biggest problem is the America public so far, do not believe that the climate is changing. And with the superstorms like Sandy coming, it’s getting mad out there. Anybody with a brain has got to make the connection between carbon dioxide in the atmosphere affecting the actual climate of the entire planet."

Zohara Celebrates 30 Years Being Ahead of Her Time on 10/12/14

In 1984 there were no holistic centers in the region, and very few natural healing options. Baltimoreans had to travel hundreds of miles to find a quality acupuncturist or a trained and licensed homeopath or nutrition expert. Zohara Hieronimus determined to change all that and on her own founded the Ruscombe Mansion Community Health Center, despite being told by medical professionals at Hopkins and other hospitals that it would never succeed.

Zohara Hieronimus, D.H.L. and Dr. Ina Grundman

Thanks to her foresight, Ruscombe celebrates 30 years on October 12, 2014 with a free Open House, vegetarian food samples, yoga classes, holistic panel discussions and Q&A. Ruscombe is still the largest and oldest holistic healing center on the East Coast, but Zohara's persistence also paid off in the local hospitals who have opened up their own holistic options in the meantime.

Expose Exxon – Boycott Exxon!

Detail from "Red States" by Bob Hieronimus, Ph.D.

ExxonMobil is the most profitable corporation in world history, making over $1.6 trillion in revenue -- $136 billion in profit -- from 2008-2011 according to Forbes data. ExxonMobil is a key member of the top lobbying group for the oil industry. They are using this profit to fund the debunkers of climate change science. ExxonMobil is the biggest funder of profit-motivated, anti-science challenges to the internationally accepted models predicting the severity of climate change. Don’t let your gas dollars contribute to this selfish behemoth that is using your money to squash progress for a cleaner world.

The Student Reveals a Few Key Mentors

by Bob Hieronimus, Ph.D.

In April of 1972 I was contacted by the former Secretary General of the United Nations U Thant, who was providing a letter of introduction to me for Buddhist mystic and diplomat U Maung Maung Ji. This led to several momentous encounters for me with my most important mentors, who told me I had been overshadowed by a higher force to execute “The Apocalypse.”

Main room, main wall of “The Apocalypse” mural, extended

I believe the time has now come for me to reveal this story and introduce you to the guides who have been with me since at least 1968 when I realized why I incarnated in this earthly body known as Robert R. Hieronimus.

Dr. Zohara Hieronimus discussed her latest book, The Future of Human Experience, to a full house at Breathe Books

An adventure in ideas and solutions for planet Earth's great challenges, Zoh Hieronimus discussed how we each shape the future today, and why prayer, right intention, and collective will can transform even the forces of nature. Her new book The Future of Human Experience: Visionary Thinkers on the Science of Consciousness (2013) explores the body of the world, the mind of the world, and the soul of the world. Self-management, Zoh shares, is as important as international agreements. We are enfolded in the world, and also, the world unfolds from us.

Baltimore Friends of IONS: The Future Of Human Experience: Visionary Thinkers on the Science of Consciousness sponsored the event.


Deception: A Review and Critical Analysis of the book, Encounter In Rendlesham Forest

By Peter Robbins

And so it happened that as I read ... I began to notice something, subtle at first, then more apparent, ...a pattern that seemed to have been deliberately undertaken, in an intentional manner, and calculated only to manifest negative intent. ...Each data point was presented respectfully, if incomplete or in reconfigured form, and... strongly suggested there was good cause to doubt... my professionalism, research and investigation skills, and reputation.... I must conclude that parts of this book were written with conscious intent to deceive its readers, and in so doing, demean the value of an outstanding book I had put almost ten years of my life into. More here...

Dr. Bob was especially pleased to be invited to speak at length about the influence of the Native Americans on the founding fathers. Unlike the dozens of U.S. documentaries on which he has been interviewed for History, Discovery, Nat Geo, SyFy, Fox, etc., the interviewers for Der Spiegel seemed to understand the importance of the usually overlooked impact of the Native Americans on Euro-Americans. Representatives from the League of the Iroquois were invited to attend and advise the Continental Congress during their deliberations, and taught Franklin, Jefferson, Madison, and many others the key ingredients for success.


False Spontaneity of the Tea Party

by Al Gore in the Huffington Post

The Tea Party Movement was planned over a decade ago by groups with ties to the tobacco and fossil fuel industries.

A new study funded by the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health reveals that the Tea Party Movement was planned over a decade ago by groups with ties to the tobacco and fossil fuel industries. The movement was not a spontaneous populist uprising, but rather a long-term strategy to promote the anti-science, anti-government agenda of powerful corporate interests. The two organizations mentioned in the report, Americans for Prosperity and Freedomworks, used to be a single organization that was founded by the Koch brothers and heavily financed by the tobacco industry. These organizations began planning the Tea Party Movement over ten years ago to promote a common agenda that advocated market fundamentalism over science and opposed any regulation or taxation of fossil fuels and tobacco products.
