The People of SAGE

In Memoriam:

Our Co-Founder,

Rev. William S. Buehler,

U.S. Navy Commander (Ret.)


The Sacred Academy of Global Evolution could not have come to be without the life work of our beloved Co-Founder, Rev. William S. Buehler, who passed away on August 1, 2018.  A leading authority in the study of Earth and Stellar Grids as they relate to sacred geometry in temple design, Rev. William was an ordained Minister in the liberal and independent Catholic Church called “Ascension-Alliance”, with his chartered church named: “Sanctuary of Machenim Groves.” .


Rev. Buehler graduated from the University of Michigan in 1956 with a Commission in the Navy. He retired from the Navy in 1976 as a Surface Line Commander with battle experience in the Vietnam war. He was decorated for his performance in two surface actions with North Vietnam PT boats in the "GULF OF TONKIN INCIDENT" in August, 1964, where he was the Operations Officer in USS MADDOX (DD-731) at that time, conning the ship during the actions.. He retained a permanent rank of COMMANDER, USN (Ret).  After retiring he did 3 years of post-graduate work in Religion at the AMERICAN UNIVERSITY in Washington DC where he pursued highly specialized and unique studies in unorthodox approaches in translation and interpretation of scripture in both Hebrew and Christian foci.

With his dedicated partner, Edie Cooper, Rev. Buehler led retreats and conferences throughout the U.S. and overseas, and especially in Crestone, Colorado, where for many years he facilitated Synergy Light Group work to assist the elevation of human consciousness toward Divine Ascension. A beloved friend and teacher, he left a legacy of sacred science which The Sacred Academy of Geo-Energetics is dedicated to preserving and sharing for future generations.


Founding Director -

Michael Henry Dunn


Michael Henry Dunn is a human rights advocate, scholar, author, musician, and a globally recognized commentator on issues of human rights and the restoration of the Rule of Law. As a member of Self-Realization Fellowship, he has practiced meditation for some thirty years, leading meditation and chants at spiritual centers worldwide - experiences he wove into his book, "Romancing the Divine - The Art and Science of Falling in Love with God."


Holding a B.A. in Humanities from Shimer College, Michael Dunn trained as an actor at The Juilliard School and enjoyed an award-winning 15-year career in the theater. He is a recognized authority on the Shakespeare authorship, lecturing at universities in the US and Europe on Elizabethan literature and history. As a composer and vocalist, he has recorded two highly praised albums of devotional Yoga chant in the kirtan style of India.

Inspired by the Sacred Activism teachings of renowned scholar and author Andrew Harvey, Michael undertook a risky journey to Jakarta, Indonesia in the spring of 2013 to cover the unfolding exposure of the Global Collateral Accounts. A five-year campaign to help launch a new international court of human rights followed, in the spirit of a restoration of the Code of Chivalry as a meaningful moral and geopolitical force.


This led ultimately to Michael's role as Founding Director of The Sacred Academy of Global Evolution (SAGE) in Crestone, Colorado, as a teaching and research institution dedicated to Sacred Activism training and global healing. Michael also serves as Caleac, or Lineage Protector, of The Johannine Templars, an Interfaith Order of the Holy Spirit devoted to Sacred Activism and the Code of Chivalry.

Maia's writings was validated in meetings with Edgar Mitchell, Apollo 14 astronaut and founder of The Institute of Noetic Sciences, and through close correspondence with L. George Lawrence, the inventor of the first laser engine. Her work was a principal inspiration for the work of SAGE Co-Founder, Rev. William S. Buehler.  She has published two books, "Red Tree," an Akashic setting for high spiritual science,  and "Blue Star Love," a spiritual biography of Elvis Presley. A gifted visionary artist, Rev.

Carol Mann - Evolution, Metaphysics, Media, Heart


Carol Mann's work, in her own words,  "is to inspire and to anchor a new global paradigm based on embodying frequencies of loving states of being. By definition, these energies upgrade the frequency of individual and collective consciousness and actively support Gaia’s accelerated evolution. My work brings together knowledge from my professional career roles, a lifelong study of metaphysics, wisdom traditions and cutting edge science, a love of things spiritual and the gift of clairvoyance. The common thread underlying all that I offer is support for humanity’s higher destiny by connecting people to the wisdom, unconditional love and higher intelligence of their heart/soul so that these states of being can naturally inform and guide our lives."

Carol holds a Bachelor's Degree from Washington University in St. Louis, and a Master's Degree from Harvard University. Highlights of her professional history include: Assistant Professor of Behavioral Sciences, Training Manager and Leadership Consultant in the computer industry, Ski and Summer Resort owner, Newspaper columnist, Radio personality, Published author, Yoga teacher, Workshop and Retreat facilitator and clairvoyant transformation consultant to individuals, groups and businesses nationally and abroad.

Nathanael Bar-Tholmi -

Reshel Group Leader & Kabbalah Teacher


Nathanael bar Tholmi is the nomen mysticum of a dedicated husband, and father of 3 teenagers in Antwerp, Belgium. He holds a Master’s degree in Linguistics and General Management from the Flemish Catholic College for Business Administration. In the profane world of the material matrix, he takes up responsibility as a Strategic Sales Manager in Europe for a large multinational company to ensure he can properly feed and clothe his loved ones. His business style is characterized by ethics through an integrate dedication to Christic consciousness and the win-win-win principle of Ubuntu: if it is not good for everyone, it is no good for anyone. This has led him to resign from positions in the past that offered him lots of money but in exchange for his soul, which he will never be ready to give up under any circumstance.

Nathanael is committed to the co-creation of the new geo-energetics that are best represented by the ancient Thothic-Metatronic science of the Reshel, which he learnt from the late Reverend William Stuart Buehler. Since 2002, Bill’s work led him to get acquainted with the life work of Rev. Maia Kyi’Ra Nartoomid, who has become a dear overseas friend and whose THOTHIC teachings have become a living foundation for his own unique intuitions and insights in the True Christic Teachings.

Having received the higher degrees within the regular and traditional western orders of Freemasonry and Rosicrucianism (1999 - 2008), and having received the high-priestly ordination in the Esoteric Church of Yeshua and Mary Magdalen in its form of Martinism (Rosicrucianism), Nathanael has a thorough live experience of the workings of the ancient western mystery schools today. Since 2008, Nathanael brought all his esoteric studies and experience together under his own spiritual venture “Ruby Rose Line” (website under construction). His activities in Belgium span the following areas:

  • Organize scientific-spiritual seminars for new scientists such as Dr. Hurtak & Dr. Rupert Sheldrake

  • Give public lectures on the western sciences of Kabbalah and Reshel

  • Teach the classical Kabbalistic principles and knowledge within the school of Z’ev ben Shimon Halevi (Warren Kenton) of the Kabbalah Society (

  • Lead monthly meetings for a blooming and growing Reshel lightwork group

  • Organize yearly pilgrimages for his Reshel lightwork group to reinforce the new consciousness grids in particular the in particular the “Alikhar Grid" which anchors the Christic consciousness for the whole planet in Albion (the United Kingdom + Ireland)

  • Pass on the traditional initiation within Martinism within the Martinist Order of the Unknown Philosophers (

  • Last but not least, he published his first book “The Reshel – the Anchoring of the Christ Consciousness and the Gospel of the Grail”  in Dutch, and is now busy translating this into English for official publication through his website under construction “Ruby Rose Line”. 


As an advisory board member of S.A.G.E.,  Nathanael intends to be a living example and apply the Reshel science in all his business and spiritual activities - a continuous challenge and balancing exercise!
