Report on Ricardo González Workshop at Mt Shasta – August 3-4, 2013
On the weekend of August 3-4, 2013 extraterrestrials delivered an important transformative message for humanity through a workshop led by Peruvian contactee Ricardo González at Mt Shasta, California. Extraterrestrials have come in peace and friendship, and are willing to participate in positive exchanges with humanity. They are willing to support citizen based forms of galactic diplomacy that will help humanity join the galactic community.
There were approximately 50-55 people attending the workshop being held at Sand Flat, Mt Shasta. All participants were camping. The language of instruction was Spanish, and English translations were provided on an ad hoc basis. Participants were encouraged to film/photograph whatever they witnessed.
Ricardo began by discussing his background. He described his experiences as both involving physical sightings and contacts. He claims his first contact exaperience was in 1996 at Paititi, Peru with an “intraterrestrial” from an ancient underground civilization. In 1997 he had another contact. This involved meeting a tall Nordic extraterrestrial called Antarel at the Chilca Desert, Peru. Ricardo was taken up into a space ship with Antarel in 2001. He most recent contact was on August 26, 2012 at Mt Shasta. Prior to the contact, a large group of approximately 55 had a physical sighting of a vehicle that did not appear to be an aircraft or satellite.
The 2012 physical contact occurred after the larger group completed the workshop on the morning of August 26. Ricardo got a psychographic (automatic writing) request to go back to the campsite and in total a group of 13 once again had a sighting of what appeared to be an extraterrestrial vehicle. This was another “programed sighting” for a specific time (9:00 pm) that Ricardo had advised a few individuals previously so they could be prepared. Ricardo received another psychographic request to go deeper into the forest by himself. The vehicle projected a ray of light or plasma ball that transported him into a space vehicle for approx 1.5 hrs. When he returned, it seemed that only 15 minutes had elapsed. An English translation of Ricardo’s 2012 Contact Report is available here.
After the introductory session for the 2013 workshop, Ricardo took questions. When I asked how the universal law of attraction applied to contact in terms of positively and negatively inclined humans/ETs, Ricardo said that there were three important considerations that applied here in determining the nature of the contact experiences he is involved with.
- Intention had to match. Positive intentions attract positively inclined ETs.
- Vibration/Frequency had to match. Generally, this involved human participants raising their consciousness at a level that is compatible with the extraterrestrials.
- There had to be an invitation.
These appear to me to be solid principles upon which a respectful form of extraterrestrial contact can occur. It requires a lengthy preparation process during which any individual fears would be overcome.
Ricardo did a number of exercizes that helped the group feel comfortable with the possibility of an extraterrestrial sighting or contact. Visualizations were used to achieve this, as well as a silent walk in nature. The environment and energy of Mount Shasta did provide a unique opportunity to prepare for the unusual. Between exercizes Ricardo and other members of the group took photos of UFOs that appeared. Here is one taken by Ricardo during the workshop.
Ricardo claims that when a UFO pulses a bright light in response to an intention/request, that is a characteristic of an extraterrestrial vehicle. That is different to satellites that pulse during rotation when the sun is reflected at a different angle, and are generally dimmer. Aircraft are far easier to identify and are always accompanied by the noise from their jet engines.
Prior to the Saturday evening Sky Watch, Ricardo explained that the group would experience what he calls a “programmed sighting,” rather than a spontaneous sighting. A “programmed sighting” involves advance notice of when the extraterrestrial vehicle would appear. In the case of the 2013 Mt Shasta workshop Ricardo had publicly announced a programmed sighting on Chilean TV one month in advance where he also announced that I would be attending. Below is a video showing Ricardo’s televised announcement. According to the psychographic communications he received, the sighting would occur between 9-10 pm.
During the sky watch on August 3, Ricardo explained the importance of distinguishing between satellites, aircraft and extraterrestrial vehicles. The latter were brighter and would pulse in response to the groups intentions. The extraterrestrial vehicles came in different sizes according to Ricardo. There are large motherships that ranged in size from several hundred meters to nearly 20 kilometers. There are scoutcraft that were approximately 30 meters in size. There are also probes that were generally two meters in diameter, or could even be smaller, that were unmanned.
At 9 pm, the workshop participants were instructed to begin chanting OM, and to continue the chanting throughout the hour. This was done in order to match the vibration/frequency with potential extraterrestrial visitors.
With the advance preparation and training, workshop participants immediately began identifying the various objects that were sighted. Aircraft were easily identified, as well as satellites that were very distant and dim. One of the objects at around the 9:10 mark appeared to fulfill the characteristics of an extraterrestrial vehicle. It appeared closer to the earth than a satellite, it pulsed a bright light, and its flight trajectory did not appear to be uniform. Unlike aircraft, there was no jet engine noise. It qualified, according to Ricardo’s criteria, as a possible extraterrestrial vehicle, though it was not unambiguous. As the 10 pm mark approached, none of the other 30 or so objects seen appeared to be an extraterrestrial vehicle.
At approximately 9:55 Ricardo asked the audience to be receptive to any messages from extraterrestrials. Soon after an object moving in a north easterly direction pulsed a bright red light. It was already near the horizon when it pulsed so it was a fairly short sighting. Ricardo interpreted it as a sign that the group would receive a message. Ricardo received a message and was beginning to announce it when an object moving from a southerly direction began to glow brightly and gave a very intense pulse.
It was filmed by several participants (two of these are shown in the video below). It was the most unambiguous demonstration of an extraterrestrial vehicle. Ricardo completed reading the message, and as if on cue another object appeared and glowed brightly before delivering another intense pulse of light. It was a second unambiguous demonstration of an extraterrestrial vehicle. Most importantly, it appeared to be confirming the accuracy of the earlier messages received by Ricardo.
Here is the message:
Yes it is us. You were able to verify our presence in this programmed sighting. We have done it this way to offer our support so that you do not lose the strength to keep going on. The contact with us is real. But more important is our profound relationship with you. We have a message for Michael Salla. We desire that the real reason for our presence reaches more people. This is why it is important that he understands our positive contact intentions and our interest in promoting exchanges with your human society. We will be supporting Michael in this task.
The contact has been established. Very important changes are approaching.
Be attentive. Antarel
On the morning of the final day, there was a further exercize from Ricardo using visualizations. There was discussion of the Saturday night evening sighting and the importance the extraterrestrials attach to preparing the population for contact. Farewells and group photos completed the workshop.
The sky watching on the Saturday evening was a remarkable event insofar as there were at least two unambiguous sightings of an extraterrestrial vehicle, with a possible two further more. The latter two of which occurred after Ricardo’s final message – were captured on video camera. While the night shots are not very clear, it is evidence of two tangible objects in the sky witnessed by 50+ individuals.
It appeared that the sightings also were timed to fulfill the pre-workshop “programed sighting” announcement by Ricardo made on Chilean TV. It is quite an extraordinary phenomenon that a UFO sighting can be announced a month or more in advance, and occur as predicted for the specified time frame. The “programmed sighting” was successful. Ricardo stressed a relatively rare occurrence for events he is involved with. This event was different insofar as an international extraterrestrial researcher (myself) would be attending.
One important conclusion that can be drawn from the successful “programmed sighting” from the August 2013 workshop is that it supports Ricardo’s claim of physical contact occurring at the previous August 2012 Mt Shasta workshop. Ricardo’s report of the 2012 physical contact experience contains valuable information about the intentions and activities of the extraterrestrials he works with.
The personal element of the message received by Ricardo during the 2013 programmed sighting came as a surprise to me. The message reveals the importance extraterrestrials attach to the world learning the truth about their visiting our world in peace and friendship. They desire to promote “positive contact” whereby human participants are helped and uplifted by their experiences with extraterrestrial life. Their willingness to conduct exchanges with human society is a sign of the many ways in which they can help humanity to evolve.
The manner in which the workshop was conducted, and the three requirements outlined by Ricardo for contact (1. Intention, 2. Frequency, and 3. Invitation) do give confidence that they do have positive intentions for humanity. The emphasis the extraterrestrials (whom Ricardo works with) place on the right preparation of workshop participants and respect they show for human free will, does give us confidence to accept their claims.
The feelings evoked by the sightings and the group camradarie made for an unforgettable event. The personal message from the extraterrestrials does reveal that they value peace and friendship with humanity. Importantly, they are willing to work with private citizens in various exchanges that confirm the significance of citizen based forms of galactic diplomacy. These possible citizen based efforts are discussed in my recently published book, Galactic Diplomacy: Getting to Yes with ET. The final conclusion is that extraterrestrials involved with the Mt Shasta sighting from 2013 have a transformative message for humanity that inspires hope for a future where humanity is ready to join the galactic community.

Galactic Diplomacy is a new book that introduces first hand witness and whistleblower testimonies revealing that the USA, Britain, Russia and other major national governments have been secretly conducting, or known about, diplomatic relations with different extraterrestrial civilizations since at least 1952. These testimonies reveal that galactic diplomacy (aka exodiplomacy) with extraterrestrial visitors began with discussions over the development of thermonuclear weapons, the first of which was detonated by the Truman administration in November, 1952. Diplomatic discussions then expanded to include issues such as technology development, alien bases, extraterrestrials living on Earth, human rights, and use of earth resources. In frustration over lack of government transparency with their citizens, some extraterrestrials began contacting private citizens to inform them of the true nature of alien activities on Earth, and diplomatic relations with governments.
Extraterrestrial life has been discovered, and senior national security officials have been reticent to disclose this fact not only to their citizens, but to most elected representatives. While the traditional approach among UFO researchers has been to accumulate further evidence to indisputably prove the existence of UFOs and the extraterrestrial hypothesis, after seven decades of officially sanctioned deception, such an approach is no longer suitable. The information age makes available the evidence of visiting extraterrestrial life at any computer terminal around the world. A new approach to the massive evidentiary pool is necessary.
Galactic Diplomacy prepares the reader for the fact that technologically advanced extraterrestrial life exists, and has been visiting our planet since at least the 1940s. This fact has been kept secret by a carefully orchestrated set of policies developed by national security officials with the historic support of a small select group of elected government representatives. These policies are implemented in highly classified compartmentalized programs with strict need-to-know security provisions in place. This means that the vast majority of government, military and corporate officials are simply out of the loop on the extraterrestrial issue.
Not only have select governmental authorities deceived their citizens and peers about extraterrestrial life, but major governments led by the U.S. have secretly entered into direct diplomatic relations with extraterrestrial life. Most disturbing is evidence that some major governments, principally the U.S., have entered into secret agreements with some extraterrestrial groups that have de facto treaty status. Some of these agreements concern the acquisition and development of extraterrestrial technology, and their advanced knowledge, found around the world or in outer space.
Galactic diplomacy which I use as a synonym for exodiplomacy – is currently a highly classified national security program where a select group of authorized government, military and corporate officials, are secretly meeting to discuss extraterrestrial life and technology. In some cases, these officials are communicating directly with representatives of extraterrestrial civilizations.
The reader has basically three choices given the startling evidence that galactic diplomacy is secretly occurring. The first is to dismiss testimonial evidence of extraterrestrial life, and tacitly allow select government authorities to indefinitely continue their secret galactic diplomacy. Debunkers typically raise the cliché extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof, and proceed to establish an extraordinarily high standard for accepting any evidence as admissible on the issue of extraterrestrial life. They then proceed to debunk all evidence for alien visitors to our world on the basis that none of the testimonial evidence reaches the extraordinarily high standards required to prove extraordinary claims. Yet, truth remains true even when one is unable to prove it. Eyewitness testimony doesnt cease to be evidence simply because a witness or whistleblower cant prove what they saw or experienced.
Exposing governmental agreements concerning or directly involving extraterrestrial life is the second choice before us given the evidence that galactic diplomacy is secretly occurring. Becoming active in a global process to pressure government authorities to disclose all they know about alien life and technology, will be the preferred choice of many once the evidence persuades them.
The third choice is the most proactive. It invites the reader to seriously contemplate becoming active in a citizen based diplomatic outreach with extraterrestrial civilizations visiting our planet. This choice will appeal to many who are disheartened by the depth of deception by select national security authorities over the existence of extraterrestrial life.
Galactic Diplomacy is a book that assists those attracted to the second and third choices over how to react to the exodiplomacy that has been occurring. Those desiring to expose secret governmental activity in diplomatic relations concerning extraterrestrial life, will be given the necessary basic information tools to hold responsible government, military and corporate officials accountable for past policies, and to ensure governmental transparency in the future. Alternatively, those desiring to become active in citizen diplomacy initiatives will be given essential information for discerning the motivations and activities of visiting extraterrestrial civilizations. This is indispensable for practicing a citizen based form of galactic diplomacy.
Getting to Yes is the title of a popular book in the field of conflict resolution that reveals how to conduct negotiations based on recognizing all the parties needs or vital interests, rather than positions. A necessary first step is recognizing the needs of all parties in a negotiation, and having them adequately represented. In principled negotiations, all parties interests are represented. When it comes to the visitation of extraterrestrial life, testimonial evidence reveals that private citizens are a party whose vital interests in secret negotiations have not been represented at all. This indicates that secret negotiations are unprincipled according to the model developed in Getting to Yes.
Getting to Yes with ET is consequently not solely diplomatic activity secretly pursued by government, military and corporate entities from around the world, but an inalienable right that belongs to private citizens. Private citizens have a right to have their interests directly represented in any negotiations where their vital interests are involved. In the United States, this is recognized in the Constitution where diplomatic agreements require ratification by the two thirds of the U.S. Senate which directly represents the interests of private citizens. Private citizens have an inherent right in being directly represented and/or participating in any decisions over who among the various extraterrestrial visitors are willing to satisfy our vital interests in any diplomatic agreements. Guaranteeing a direct role of private citizens in any agreements reached with extraterrestrial civilizations will ensure that our vital interests are met, and we properly evolve as a planetary civilization. The choice is up to you. Order your copy of Galactic Diplomacy and prepare yourself for the grandest adventure of all the journey to galactic citizenship!

Gordon Duff is the senior editor of the popular Veterans Today website who just over a month ago attracted much media attention for his claims that a joint US Chinese naval task force was battling UFOs off the coast of San Francisco. In a Veterans Today blog released today, October 20, featuring an interview recorded on Coast to Coast Radio four days earlier, Duff provided details of a briefing document he personally witnessed in 1982 while working for an unnamed government agency. Duff claims that the document belonged to an organization called Majestic 12 – a committee allegedly formed to develop government policy on alien life – and contained references to two treaties with extraterrestrial civilizations. The treaties, according to Duff, were coerced upon the USA and other countries by a hostile extraterrestrial race. In revealing more details of his 1982 experience, Duff is hoping to cast light on what sources have told him of a hostile extraterrestrial race that the navies of the US, China, Japan and South Korea are currently secretly fighting in the Pacific Ocean. Is Duff revealing the contents of a genuine highly classified government document he witnessed decades ago; or is he disseminating disinformation that was created with the purpose of creating a false flag extraterrestrial threat that may be unfolding at this very moment in the Pacific Ocean.
In his radio interview, Duff described the initial experience that made him aware of the extraterrestrial issue for the first time. He says:
In 1982 I was put on the readers group for Majestic 12. I received an original copy, slightly redacted. Done on a typewriter, dated August 23, 1977, Office of Naval Intelligence. About 12 pages long, I had copy number five.
Duff claims that at the time he had a high level security clearance from an unnamed government agency, and that it took him 18 months to be cleared for the Majestic reading group. After reading the document for about two hours, Duff put it back in its binder, and never saw it again.
Duff revealed the contents of the document:
The document covered the period from 1947 to 1977 when they were produced. They indicated that over this period we had two distinct treaties. There have been more since, I have been told. One [treaty] in 1947, initially with President Truman. One in 1953, with President Eisenhower… The 1953 treaty with President Eisenhower was an agreement, a coercive agreement against the USA on behalf of a hostile alien power that wished to be able to kidnap a number of citizens from the United States, which means of course that they had agreements with other nations as well.
What Duff revealed next might be a shocking set of provisions forced upon US authorities by hostile aliens, or something straight out of a propaganda manual to condition a domestic audience for a future false flag alien war.
The numbers were unusually high. These were not people that were going to be detained, and probed, and returned. These were people that were going to be detained and butchered. They were very clear about that!
There are some important reasons to suspect that Duff may, in 1982, have been unknowingly recruited to spread, at some future time, propaganda that would assist a false flag operation.
First, there is a well known collection of Majestic documents that have been released since 1984, and have been vetted and investigated by independent UFO researchers ever since. Some of these, according to leading researchers such as retired nuclear physicist, Stanton Friedman, are very likely to be genuine. Other Majestic documents are more controversial in terms of authenticity. Nevertheless, none of the Majestic documents refer to an alien treaty, and none refer to the coercive provisions described by Duff.
Second, if there was a coercive treaty imposed on U.S. and other national government authorities with the onerous provisions described by Duff, there would have been other whistleblowers coming forward to reveal this. While there have been a significant number of whistleblowers that have come forward to describe agreements between US authorities and alien races, none of these whistleblowers describe the onerous provisions detailed by Duff. For example, Dan Sherman (USAF retired) claims that he was trained to communicate with an alien species involved in the abduction phenomenon while he was stationed at the NSA. Sherman claimed that the names and numbers he was relaying appeared to be part of an agreement to monitor alien activities with abducted humans. None of these activities were as egregious as those described by Duff. Sherman wrote:
The bitterness began a few months after I had started to receive comms from Bones [an extraterrestrial]. It hit a sharp incline when I began to receive the abduction comms and now it hit a crescendo. I was tired of being supposedly so important because of my abilities, yet treated like an underling with no need-to-know…. Why the abduction data? Why had everything been passed in code, mostly, until now? … I finally came to the conclusion, after reporting over 20 apparent abduction scenarios, that I wanted no part of the program any longer. Although I had no reason to believe anyone was being maliciously harmed, I did get a feeling that the abductions I was reporting were part of some sort of higher calling and the feelings of the people involved took a back seat to that calling. [Above Black: Project Preserve Destiny (One Team Publishing, 1988) 134, 136]
Third, an alleged treaty that clearly describes people being detained and butchered is highly likely to be disinformation. If provisions of a treaty do contain onerous conditions, these would undoubtedly need to be cleared at a very high level, and be framed in a way that would not be so obvious. That would ensure that senior national security figures would not be prosecuted at some future time if and when the treaty/agreement was released to the general public.
In conclusion, it is more than likely that Gordon Duff was unknowingly misinformed with the alleged Majestic briefing document he witnessed in 1982. The goal was probably to recruit Duff so that at a future time he could promote a hostile alien threat scenario that could be manipulated by national security authorities tasked with the extraterrestrial issue. The creation of a false flag alien attack or invasion would enable the national security apparatus to impose more stringent security procedures that significantly increase their influence; maintain a cover up of extensive advanced technologies developed from retrieved alien spacecraft; clamp down even further on whistleblowers exposing alien related classified projects; and, finally, manipulate public opinion about the intentions and activities of visiting extraterrestrial life. Duff, John Kettler and other writers that are currently discussing various sources alleging an expanding battle in the Pacific Ocean between hostile aliens and a US led naval coalition may be revealing a real life Battleship movie scenario. More likely, Duff, Kettler and others are disseminating, unknowingly at best, a well prepared and thought out false flag alien invasion scenario that would make it even more difficult for the public to learn the truth about extraterrestrial life visiting our planet.
