CDM Celebrates 25th Anniversary
The CDM Psychic Institute and Church of Divine Man are proud to

Youth Program Coordinator at the Mission District YMCA for several
years. Mary Ellen and Doc met in Berkeley, California in 1976 and
together they created and nurtured the CDM Psychic Institute/Church
of Divine Man. Through the years both Doc and Mary Ellen have taught
thousands of people spiritual techniques that have changed their

today a powerful resource where everyone can re-connect with
his or her spiritual self and God. The Portland CDM, located at
3314 SW First Avenue, offers classes in meditation and healing as
well as a two-year clairvoyant training program. These classes offer
the individual the opportunity to learn how to quiet their body-mind
system and get to know the aspect of God that is within them in
a safe, non-mystical environment. The next series of eight weekly
meditation and healing classes will run from October 21st
to December 16th. The clairvoyant training program can be entered
at the beginning of any quarter (January, April, July, and October).
In addition to training, CDM also offers a spiritual community where
people can practice using their spiritual techniques and celebrate
their connection to God.

The historic Campaign for Disclosure is
coming to Portland September 12 and to Salem on September 13.
The Disclosure Project is a nonprofit research project working
to fully disclose the facts about UFOs, extraterrestrial intelligence,
and classified advanced energy and propulsion systems. The disclosure
of the truth will have far-reaching implications for our society--new
technologies to end pollution and global warming, long-term solution
to the energy crisis, and the beginning of an era of peaceful relations
with other civilizations in space.
During the past year, Dr. Greer and the Disclosure Project have
been able to identify, contact, and videotape interviews with nearly
100 military, intelligence, and government witnesses to UFO events
and projects. Many of these interviews and accompanying evidence
are definitive and will establish the reality of the ET/UFO subject
as well as the nature and purpose of the secrecy surrounding it.
Dr. Greer has just spent several weeks briefing senators and house
representatives on Capitol Hill, following the landmark National
Press Club Conference May 9 in Washington, DC that was live webcast.
Over 250,000 people were waiting on-line for the press conference
to begin. The next biggest webcast event at the National Press Club
attracted less than 25,000.
The Portland event will be on Wednesday, September 12, 2001
- 6 to 10 pm at the First Congregational United Church of Christ,
1126 SW Park Ave., Portland OR 97205. There will be a $5 Facility
It will include an exclusive showing of the 2-hour Disclosure video
of dozens of government and military witnesses to UFO and extraterrestrial
events and projects, and a presentation by Disclosure Project Director
Steven M. Greer, MD. See http://www.disclosureproject.org
