Hello,

You will find below the usual introductory information I used to email to new-comers on the Earth Rainbow Network (ERN) emailing list. If you would like to subscribe to the Earth Rainbow Network automated listserver and regularly receive compilations covering a broad range of subjects, including each new Meditation Focus issued every two week, simply send a blank email at earthrainbownetwork-subscribe@lists.riseup.net from the email account to which you want to receive the material compiled and networked by the Earth Rainbow Network Coordinator. Subscription is FREE!

Note: unless you request your email to remain private, I may elicit to publish partly or entirely any of your emails to me in one of my compilations regularly sent to the ERN list.




Here is a brief history of how Jean Hudon, from Quebec, Canada, the webmaster of this site and coordinator of the Earth Rainbow Network, got started in this work.

I've been actively involved on the web for over 2 years now (and I have been a peace, environmental and spiritual activist since 1981 with 2 books published so far in 85 and 87 - see my résumé at the bottom of this page for more details) and have created an extensive website, initially to present the Millennium Gathering project (still in the work - not sure yet if any of it will take place because of lack of funding), over the course of those 2 years which has evolved from an initial vision (see the Vision link on this site) to the creation of the Earth Rainbow Network and then to a gradual build up of people and key contacts from around the world (more than 900 of them as of February 1999), many leaders in their own field and having their own extensive networks of internet and non-internet contacts, sharing occasionally their ideas and visions on all kinds of issues, local and global, but mostly receiving material that I circulate, after receiving it from any of a number of sources, with some additional comments on all this from me (sometimes I also generate some of it), material which often gets recirculated abroad to thousands more and which even gets printed in various journals and magazines. Some topics have elicited quite a number of strongly opiniated feedbacks which were then recirculated. (Only a very small portion of all these mass emails are posted on my site for lack of time.)

People on my list have often heard for the first time in these mailings about issues that eventually became hot topics - such as the Y2K challenge and the MAI agreement - and many have contributed to help make more and more people aware of those situations until they reached boiling point in world public opinion. So when I feel something *really* deserves our collective attention, then I just go for it and make it known.

Here is now the Earth Rainbow Network Introductory package...




You will find below the basic information on this global initiative. Please feel free to share this with others who might also have an interest in this work for peace and a better world. We welcome your participation at any level that feels comfortable for you and hope you will enjoy reading this material.

Looking forward to hear from you soon

The Millennium Gathering
for a United World
and the Millennium Opening Ceremonies

The original vision

Here is the original vision of a global celebratory moment I'm hoping to put together for a worldwide TV broadcast on January 1st, 2000, as well as some additional considerations on this project. I'm including below some elements of the original call I sent out last November 29, 1996 when I started on this long and eventful journey. You will find a description of the vision that struck me that evening when I was thinking once more about a letter which Jeremy Burnham, a friend from South Africa, had sent me 2 months earlier to invite me to reactivate the Earth Concert project for the year 2000...

It's always hard to capture through words and evocative descriptions the gist of a haunting vision of unity and brotherhood and the intensity and profound effect of the emotional response that surged from my heart at that moment, a surge of love and hope strong enough to make me commit on the spot to dedicate myself to the best of my abilities to make this vision come true... with a little help from all my friends all over the world.

Here is this vision...

Almost two years before the crucial, almost mythical date of the year 2000, the time has come to kindle the Great Hope of a coming together of humanity as One United Family celebrating peacefully and with conscious intent, not the fact that we turn a new page on our calendars, but the fact that, against all odds, we are succeeding in making the transition from one of the most destructive and bellicose centuries of our history into a new era that, hopefully, will be under the banner of Peace, Sharing and Unity for all beings on Earth. The organization of a massive event, joining together all the members of our great human family in a common celebration of our hopes for a better future on the eve of the third millennium, will help to bring that awareness into sharp focus for all to see and cherish.

Imagine for a moment... In parks and venues all around the world, hundreds of millions of people have come together to celebrate while large viewing screens are showing images from around the world of people doing just the same thing and watching similar viewing screens. Billions of TV viewers at home are also watching and joining in their hearts this global moment of Unity. At a predetermined moment a solemn ceremony begins with appropriate symbolism and grandeur to mark the beginning of the new millennium. Dignitaries and celebrities from all over the world stand together around a huge Earth globe representing our planet to accentuate the momentous importance of what is about to happen. Then runners bearing a symbolic flame of Life converge to join the dignitaries and celebrities circling the central globe.

We then see on TV successive close-up views of indigenous people from Amazonia, from the heart of Africa, from North America, from Asia and Europe, from the Pacific islands and the taigas of the North, from all the corners of this magnificent planet, all dressed in their traditional attires, marching solemnly towards the center, followed by small groups of people representing all the other cultures now sharing the Earth, each group joining successively the central gathering as the world is watching the rich diversity of our human family. As people from all over the world watch this live on TV, they all have this inner realization, viewing the representatives from their culture joining the big circle, that they too are being represented at this Global Gathering and that for the very first time in the whole human history, the entire human family is about to join hearts in a shining moment of collective attunement, changing forever the inner sense and view we have on all other humans, no longer strangers from faraway lands, but true brothers and sister in the universal Circle of Life.

The momentum is growing apace as the last groups join the crowd of people now gathered around the slowly rotating Earth globe in the middle of the vast amphitheater. Then the final ceremony begins. Children from all the cultures converge from the crowd and form a large circle, holding hands around the Earth globe. A Declaration of Intent expressing in a few well crafted words the spirit of the moment and spelling our common hopes for the future is solemnly read. Simultaneously translated in all languages through national televisions and radios all over the world, these few well chosen thoughts help us all, just before the moment of attunement, to join our minds in a common appreciation of the new reality now dawning on Earth. Then the theme song of this global event begins, "The Children of Peace", sung by an international celebrity. The whole planet is entranced by this song as we enter the last few minutes before the change of century, according to the Greenwich time in London. Children choirs linked by satellites from around the world conclude this song with the words "Peace, Love, Harmony" sung in 8 different languages and then the final word "Unity". During these three minutes of grace and beauty, every human being is able to truly commit his or her remaining days on this planet to do the best he or she can to contribute to the betterment of the world. And the final countdown of the twentieth century begins 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1. And the cheers go up with the fireworks and the fiesta begins!


Imagination can give an ephemeral reality to what has just been described, but human ingenuity and a lot of dedication and heart will need to be devoted by a great number of people to make such an event possible. Despite our best intents and the great need for such a unifying event, mountains will have to be moved to make it happen. Yet, faith can move mountains! So, let's just hold this vision and start working together to make it happen.


Some additional considerations

My interest goes well beyond the purely cultural aspect of this event - which needs to represent the multifaceted tapestry of our common cultural heritage from around the world. In fact, it goes to the heart of what may help bring about a global unification of mind and spirit of our planetary human family. We are all well aware that the future of our world is still in jeopardy because of the relentless over exploitation of its natural resources and its accompanying overpopulation in certain parts of the world, not to mention decades of cumulative pollution, some very lethal and dangerous for future generations. Despite great progress in this decade to stem the tide of destruction and alleviate the pollution, recent reports state that the governments are way behind in their pledges of implementing sustainable policies made at the 1992 Rio Earth Summit.

Something very fundamental needs to change in our collective attitude and understanding regarding our relationship with the countless other life forms constituting WITH US the entire Web of Life on Earth. To me and to many other leading edge thinkers, nothing less than a spiritual revolution in our hearts and minds, in our emerging collective consciousness, is necessary to help stir the world on a true sustainable path, on a path to sanity, justice, sharing and truly lasting Peace. Nothing less will suffice. To this goal, like many other kindred souls on Earth, I have dedicated most of my life and I will keep working relentlessly to bring my contribution to this collective task of renewal and metamorphosis of our culture and global civilization. And so it is from this perspective that I approach the task of co-creating with others what could potentially be a major steppingstone in our path to collective self-renewal, namely the moment of entry into a new millennium. From this unique vantage point in our history, we will stand at the threshold of untold opportunities to create a more just and healthy world for all. We will all have a chance at this point in time to assess our course of evolution, change and development, and possibly make a conscious choice to dedicated our entire life from then on to improve our options in the face of the mounting crisis that, on all sides, will assault us more and more frequently as a result of past neglect and sheer greed.

To achieve such a change of hearts and attitude, I firmly believe that a special ceremony must be designed to help mark this important moment of transition into a new era and, at the same time, create an opportunity for the entire human population viewing this event to participate to a much needed experience of spiritual attunement into one collective whole awareness. At a certain moment of the ceremony, as described above, all should have a few minutes, after listening to proper instructions, to join their thoughts and minds and delve deeply into the awareness of our unity as One Human Family, sense the inexpressible beauty of being all alive on this planetary Jewel of Life, and turn our attention as One group consciousness to the task awaiting us to make this world a better place to live for all human beings and all species. A specially designed musical segment will infuse this moment of soulful cohesion with exactly the right vibrations, thus magnifying the unifying effect of that Instant of Magic.

There is another aspect which to me is likewise vital to insure a true success and lasting effect to this project. Nothing of this nature stands a chance of seriously influencing the course of our history, if it's just an ephemeral blip on the calendar of our civilization. The spirit emanating from this project and the means to achieve it must be shared as widely as possible long before and well beyond this event. To this end, there are many tools that have been created in the last few weeks which, once they are shared and widely recognized all around the world, will create the right context and atmosphere for such an event to flourish and bear fruits. The Earth Rainbow Network and the Earth Proclamation are such tools and are designed to gradually reach out to the multitude in an effort to create an all-inclusive momentum of anticipation for what is intended to become a turning point in our collective history.

The general idea here, at the basis of these tools, is to open to all the option of participating in the co-creation and implementation of this project, a bit the same way Earth Day in 1990 offered to the whole world the chance of being part of this environmental awareness day of activities, thus rallying the participation of over 300 million people from all countries. This is also what was achieved on a smaller scale with the first Earth Concert I promoted in 1989, with 20 concerts taking place in 15 different countries, and the involvement of thousands of people in 40 countries in the preparations leading to this event. My experience is that when the people can appropriate an idea and make it their own, it has a much more powerful impact than when they simply witness the efforts and achievements of others. Offering to a wide array of people, cultures and organizations the option of contributing a portion of a global project such as this one will offer them the possibility of co-authoring this collective effort and thus being infinitely more proud of it and dedicated to its success and continued effect. This is why I sensed it is so important that almost everyone watching this global event in about 2 years from now, be able to recognize at some point that someone from his/her part of the world is representing him/her there and participating to this great Gathering of all the cultures of this planet.

So it is with these thoughts that I will leave you for now hoping that you have been touched by this vision of a global Millennium Gathering for a United World. May we enter the 21st century united and invigorated by a common, powerful and empowering vision of our future.

The Results from the Earth Rainbow Network
Gathering of the Peacemakers


The first international meeting of the Earth Rainbow Network (ERN) took place at La Casa de Maria, in Santa Barbara, California, from December 12 to 14, 1997. Almost a year after forming this group, 20 participants from the Earth Rainbow Network met in person for the first time, some coming from as far away as Quebec, Miami, Washington D.C. and the States of Washington and Pennsylvania. They came together to find a way to manifest the vision expressed by the Earth Proclamation, which calls for the worldwide manifestation of Peace on Earth and the expression of compassion, generosity and unconditional love in all fields of human activities. Their main goal: "Co-creating a common vision of our millennial actions and projects as well as a strategy to implement this vision."

The beginning of the third millennium will definitely be a time of great worldwide attention as countless individuals and organizations are preparing to fittingly celebrate this historic moment. As their contribution to the meaningful observance of this moment, the ERN members have decided to foster the organization and linking over a 2 year period (from January 1st, 1999 to January 1st, 2001) of all kinds of local and global events and activities, all around the world, under the overall theme of "Celebrating Peace, Life and Unity on Earth".

The ERN members invite all interested groups and people to adopt this common theme for their millennial events and to cooperate or affiliate with the ERN in coordinating and linking all these activities under the banner of "Earth Gatherings 2000". The ERN members also plan to offer educational and inspirational material based on this theme and hereby invite all interested people to contribute their complementary activities and materials to the list shown below, thereby creating a vast resource bank of tools to further assist in manifesting peace on earth, a sustainable relationship with all other life forms and unity with the entire human family.

Here are some of the projects the ERN members have agreed to mutually support so far:

1. Dissemination of the Earth Proclamation, co-created by the ERN members;
2. "Millennium Gathering", proposed by Jean Hudon;
3. "Global Wellness and Unity Activity", proposed by Mike Cohen;
4. "Imagine Weaving the Dream!", proposed by Penny McManigal;
5. "One Day in Peace, January 1st, 2000", proposed by Steve Diamond and Bob Silverstein;
6. "LightShift 2000", proposed by Ken Kalb;
7. "Milenio, a Celebration of Humanity", proposed by Catherine Margerin and Mary Granfors;
8. "Digital Be-Ins", proposed by Bob Gelman;
9. "People's Walk for Peace" (in 1999), proposed by Roland Schutzbach;
10. "The Crop Circle Awareness Project", coordinated by ilyes;


The connections and feeling of being one big happy family was solidly established and the participants all came out of this gathering in an upbeat mood and very happy with the big step they had all taken with this first meeting. Lots of work awaits them in the weeks and months ahead but they trust that the inner forces and hope for a better world that have driven them to come to this meeting will similarly drive thousands more people from around the world to join and assist them in co-creating a magnificent moment of peace and unity on earth, a moment that will be the shifting point in our common quest for peace, unity and love.

JEAN HUDON

He was born in Quebec City on the 19th of June 1952, and lived there up to 1979. After completing his education, he became a self-taught musician, playing electric bass in many bands, as well as composing songs and lyrics in a progressive rock band called “Maelstrom” which recorded an album and played at major venues. In 1979, after a 10 year musical career interspersed with various jobs, he moved to a rural community in the Saguenay area where he built a comfortable three-storied house, and learned to organically grow his own vegetables. He also took part there in the creation of an intentional community called “Les Plateaux Commun‘ô’Terre” on their 540 acres communally-owned land, home today of 10 adults and 9 children living in 7 individually-owned homes.

In 1981, he became a social activist when he joined a local environmental group which organized the first demonstration in Quebec against the scourge of acid rains. In 1982, he set up the Quebec branch of a program called “Planetary Initiative for the World We Choose” and, as a result, more than 50 “Exploration Groups” were formed all across Quebec to study documents on various mega-problems facing humanity, and discuss ideas to solve them. With 20 delegates from Quebec, he participated to a “Planetary Congress” in 1983 in Toronto which resulted in a final document later presented to the U.N.

At the end of 1983, in view of the growing threat of a nuclear holocaust, he launched a global initiative to help increase public awareness and commitment to defuse the crisis. Called “Peace Bomb”, this 5 minute globally synchronized moment of prayer/meditation was widely publicized and observed in numerous countries on the 21st of December 1983. After 3 more such Peace Bombs on the following solstices and equinoxes, a weekly meditation called “Love Chain” was then launched to help sustain the momentum for peace and is still going on.

In 1985, he was invited to participate to the founding meeting of a group called “World Federation for Peace” whose motto was The Earth is my Home and Humanity my Family. His contribution was to write, compile and publish in French and English a “Guiding Manual for a New World” presenting various perspectives on the emerging new paradigm as a way to foster a transformation process within participating individuals. Also translated in Spanish, this book was subsequently used by a number of groups around the world focussing on personal and planetary transformation.

In 1986, he was spiritually inspired to write a book called “The Immortal Child” whose purpose was to present to a vast audience the concept of our planet as one single global entity, also known as the “Gaia Hypothesis”. This book, so far published in English, French, Japanese and Portuguese, led to 2 years of intense work to promote the idea of an “Earth Concert” which finally took place on December 31st, 1989 through 20 large public concerts that took place in 15 different countries. Hundreds of people in over 40 countries were directly involved in organizing this event and a major heightening of public awareness ensued as to the plight of our endangered planet.

In 1990, he planted 40,000 tree seedlings during a 6 week period in summer. He then made the transition towards becoming a professional translator on a full time basis and has so far translated over 20 channeling books and spiritual novels. In addition, he regularly wrote and mailed out around the world various position papers outlining his vision, as a way to foster change and action on key issues of peace, environment and global governance.

In 1993, he joined the Green Party of Quebec as an elected member of the National Executive Committee. After 2 years of efforts to promote ideas of sustainability, decentralization, participatory democracy and social justice he jumped on the Parti Québécois bandwagon, 6 months before the provincial election, with the hope of increasing the exposure of its leaders and members to the ideas mentioned above. Following this, he was hired as a writer to compile the official green platform of the Parti Québécois and produce a video on sustainable development featuring Mr Jacques Parizeau, former prime minister of Quebec.

On November 29, 1996, he decided to re-activate the Earth Concert project (now called the Millennium Gathering) in order to create an unifying global event to mark the beginning of the new millenium. An extensive website has been created (see at a href="http://www.cybernaute.com/earthconcert2000">http://www.cybernaute.com/earthconcert2000), an Earth Proclamation was co-created and widely circulated, an Earth Rainbow Network established and a Mission Statement adopted, an international meeting was held in Santa Barbara, California, in December 1997, to make common plans for the millennium, and over the course of 2 years, information on a wide variety of subjects was shared and discussed through a large emailing list he manages (with over 1500 subscribers from nearly 50 countries as of September 1999) as a way to expand and deepen global awareness and the sense of forming a global spiritual community gradually empowering itself to contribute in shaping the future of this world.

The Immortal Child

by Jean Hudon


Amongst all the new books offered to the public, here is one which clearly stands out by its story, which concerns all of us very closely, as well as by the way in which it was written, or rather "received", should we say...

The fruit of an inspiration directly connected to the very womb of all Life on Earth, this book features a very likeable central character with which everyone can easily identify, at least at the beginning. For rapidly this child, called Gaia, comes to embody a most vital awareness for Humanity's survival.

From the first stages of Life forms which appeared billions of years ago in an obscure corner of the primeval universe up to a striking apotheosis which will test even the most fertile imagination, this book carries us into an adventure in which we all play a central part. For in fact, there is a spark of this Immortal Child within each one of us...

Yes, this book is really not something which can be called ordinary, half fiction, half reality, in the heart of the most fascinating adventure ever: the evolution of consciousness! And whether we like it or not, this concerns all of us!
