David Yarrow: A Brief Bio
In 1970, David Yarrow crisscrossed North America to look into the human future. He recognized an inevitable collision of civilization with nature, and focused on food, food systems and agriculture as a key to regenerate human beings, society and the land. In 1978, David started Wellspring: Syracuse Center for Self-Healing, where he taught about food, cooking and acupressure. In 1983, David organized the Northeast Organic Farming Assoc. of NY, and its certification program in 1985. Aug. 6, 1992, David Yarrow took a 6000 volt "short circuit to enlightenment." He rebounded back from Heaven m a badly damaged, and surfs the cutting edge of planetary transformation. In 2001, David started an Ancient Forest Survey team. In 2004, he helped start a business selling sea minerals to farmers for soil, crops and livestock. In 2006, David spoke at the World Council of Elders of Ancient Traditions in Jaipur, India on Sacred Geometry and Onondaga Lake as one of America's most holy places. In 2009, he founded Biochar Northeast to advance a natural strategy to sequester carbon, produce renewable biofuels, create sustainable soil fertility, and grow nutrient-dense foods. Along his way, David learned to dowse Earth's subtle energy anatomy, and became a master dowser. The special feature of David's multi-dimensional odyssey is to discover ancient temples where humans held ceremonies to unite heaven and earth. After visits in March 2008 and April 2011, he believes near Council Grove is one such sacred site, and his odyssey ends there. David plans to devote his next decade to guide youth in nature awareness, ecological literacy and earth restoration.
