Steve Beckow is founder of the Golden Age of Gaia (formerly the 2012 Scenario), a member of the InLight Radio group, founded by Graham Dewyea, and the Nova Earth Foundation. He lives in Vancouver, B.C., Canada.
He attended the University of British Columbia, Carleton University, and the University of Toronto, graduating with a Masters degree in Canadian History. Steve is a member of Mensa Canada.
After studying in three Ph.D. programs, and chafing at disciplinary boundaries, he began his career as a Cultural Historian for the National Museum of Man (now the Canadian Museum of Civilization). He finished his working life as a Member of the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada, his chief interest being gender issues.
Steve has written numerous books and a few hundred articles, many of them pseudonymously. He’s created websites on enlightenment, the common ground of spirituality, life on the spirit planes, global gender persecution, automation, the truth of 9/11, the dangers of depleted uranium, and the Ascension scenario.
His articles are mostly available without cost and may be reposted freely.
His spiritual disciplines included Gestalt, encounter groups, spiritualism, the est Training, rebirthing, Zen, Vipassana meditation, and Enlightenment Intensives.
He has enjoyed several transformational or direct experiences of Self, none of which he considers “enlightenment.” Today, Steve lives a life of voluntary simplicity and research as a non-denominational and happily-married “urban monk.”
