About JZ Knight
JZ Knight was born in Roswell, New Mexico, in March 1946. She is the author of the bestselling autobiography, A State of Mind: My Story, the unique channel of Ramtha the Enlightened One, and one of the most charismatic leaders of the Schools of Ancient Wisdom and the Great Work in the world today.
About Ramtha’s School of Enlightenment
Ramtha the Enlightened One is a Master Teacher who learned to transcend the limitations of the physical world and humanity in the dynamic times he lived long ago. His mission is to teach others what he knows. Ramtha first appeared to JZ Knight in February 1977 at her home in Tacoma, Washington, where she lived with her husband and two young children. At that first meeting, Ramtha explained to her that he was here to help her “over the ditch of limitation” and they would do “grand work together.” Ramtha prepared and taught her personally for two years so he could teach his message to the world using her body through the phenomenon he called channeling. It was Ramtha who coined the term channeling in the late 1970s, which became very popular during the 1980s. JZ Knight started channeling Ramtha publicly around the country and abroad beginning in 1978 and continuing through the 1980s. This period of their work together was called the “Dialogue Days.”
In 1996 and 1997, a group of independent scientists and scholars had the opportunity to study the phenomenon of channeling as it happens in JZ Knight. When their studies were completed, they reported that JZ Knight’s experiences were authentic and that there was “a real phenomenon taking place” in her which “could not be faked” as it involved dramatic changes in her autonomic nervous system.
Ramtha’s School of Enlightenment (RSE) was established in 1988, when Ramtha began a series of teachings which became the foundation of the School of Ancient Wisdom, The Original School of Consciousness & Energy(SM). Using ancient wisdom and the latest discoveries in neuroscience and quantum physics, RSE teaches students how to access the extraordinary abilities latent in their brain and the tools to Become a Remarkable Life(SM). RSE has students from all over the world and all walks of life from six years of age to well into the golden years. Simultaneous foreign translation in seven languages — Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Chinese, and Spanish — is offered at RSE to international students as needed.
Since 1999, Ramtha's School of Enlightenment has presented Beginning Retreats to more than twenty thousand students in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and over twelve additional countries. A stunning 84% to 90% of the students who attended those events reported that the Beginning Retreat was "the greatest week of their life, so far."
Ramtha’s School of Enlightenment is truly a growing international school today. In 2007, there were more than 6,700 students in over 60 countries.
V-Day is a global movement to end violence against women and girls that raises funds and awareness through benefit productions of Playwright/Founder Eve Ensler’s award winning play The Vagina Monologues. In 2008, more than 3700 V-Day events will take place in the U.S. and around the world. To date, the V-Day movement has raised over $50 million and educated millions about the issue of violence against women and the efforts to end it, crafted international education, media and PSA campaigns, launched the Karama program in the Middle East, reopened shelters, and funded over 5000 community-based anti-violence programs and safe houses in Democratic Republic of Congo, Haiti, Kenya, South Dakota, Egypt and Iraq. V-Day was named one of Worth magazine’s “100 Best Charities” in 2001 and Marie Claire’s “Top Ten Charities” in 2006. The ‘V’ in V-Day stands for Victory, Valentine, and Vagina.
