Pierre Dubois Channeling the Galactic Regent Council
From the core of the Milky Way Galaxy we come to you today with a message of hope and transformation. We are the Galactic Regent Council, the collective of 12 Elders that compose the governance of the Milky Way Galaxy. As the earth approaches the crossing of the galactic equator—a cosmological event 31 million years in the making—you will find yourself acutely aware that you have to change and transform your thinking, behavior, and consciousness from holding fear and lack into embodying trust, surrender, and authenticity.
As your planet connects to the outer edge of the galactic equator, your misalignment will be visible to you. The more disconnected that you are to your core and authentic nature, the more dissonance you will feel. Yet in this discomfort lies the key to your salvation. If you can lean toward the pain and realize that your self-deception is not congruent with the Nameless Light emanating from the galactic equator, you will have begun the process of deconstructing the false belief. Look critically at your belief system not as the absolute truth, but as an evolving principle that grows and expands like the consciousness of the Divine. Understand that on the path of return, you are to mirror the Light of God, and since God is ever becoming, your beliefs should also evolve. The Nameless Light wants to end your pain and suffering, but for that to happen, you have to align yourself to truth, transparency, and authenticity.
This year will prove to be pivotal for many of you. It is a time to choose which path to follow. You can continue to blind yourself and pretend that the status quo is satisfactory, although evidence to the contrary is all around you. A wiser path is to realize that you have to fundamentally change and espouse a more spiritually aligned and authentic life. By your choice, you will be selecting which version of the future earth you will move into. We in the Galactic Core cannot make this choice for you. You are sentient incarnations of God. Your choice and co-creation, whatever it may be, is highly respected. But understand the consequences. The cosmological alignment that is about to happen will take place again 31 million years from now. As immortal beings, we can afford to wait for you, but can you?
This year we celebrate Wesak in the Catskill Mountains at the Gaiaville Retreat Center. Join us as we bless and open this Holy Center. We encourage you to make the radical and fundamental transformation that will bring you purpose, meaning, and fulfillment.

THE CATSKILL MOUNTAINS: LONG EDDY, NEW YORK
This year we are privileged to gather at the Gaiaville Retreat Center in the LONG EDDY home of Pierre Dubois, in the newly renovated structure that will serve as the home base of the future Gaiaville community—an ascended, green, sustainable, and healing village. As the arms of Gaia embrace and surround us in this sacred space, we will travel in spirit to the Wesak Valley to partake in this renewal and celebration. LONG EDDY is located close to the center of New York State in Sullivan County, a popular vacation spot since the 19th Century, with mountain climbing, boating, and other outdoor activities. The site of the original Woodstock Festival concert of 1969 is nearby at the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, which includes a museum of the sixties and holds many concerts and other events.
Ten minutes from Long Eddy, the small 200-year-old town of HANCOCK provides some of the nearest hotel/motel and restaurant options. It is surrounded by lush green hills, wildlife and spectacular views of the Delaware River and is known for its fishing, gaming, canoeing, golfing, bluestone mining, and camping. Other notable cultural destinations include the CAS Arts Center, a multi-arts exhibit space and education center run by the Catskill Art Society in Livingston Manor, New York.
