Washington state has a New Age-oriented organization run by the amiable James Gilliland. Gilliland tells the story that a number of years ago he had an enlightenment experience that put him in touch with UFO-related intelligences. After this life changing event, he bought some rural land near Trout Lake, Washington, and set up his Sattva Sanctuary. He welcomes all sincere seekers after New Age and UFO intelligences-related knowledge. In August 2006, he is organizing a Science, Spirit, and World Tranformation Conference at his Sattva Sanctuary. (Oregon MUFON and MUFON do not endorse this approach to UFOs and UFO phenomena, but we do encourage people to seek out and critically evaluate the many approaches there are to UFOs and UFO information.)
