RAADfest, held August 9-13, 2017 in San Diego, was made possible, in large part, by the efforts of People Unlimited members. People Unlimited provided most of the event support team as well as several great performances.
Do you feel that aging is a disease and can be cured? Do you ever wonder what it might be like to live forever? Do you ever think that it is a real possibility for you? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you should explore the possibilities further in this exciting new book, by James Strole and Bernadeane, co-founders of People Unlimited
There is an amazing and perfect movement of energy operating within our physical bodies that is forever palpable.....forever generative. We only have to place our attention upon and within our body to understand and feel this. I feel this has always been so....and always will be. As an individual, I have always had an ability to tune into this magnificent presence and when I contemplate the essence of this powerful life force... I am completely turned on. Think about it for a minute. We are the recipients of this astounding gift we call LIFE. How amazing is this? A gift so ever present... so forever moving... so victoriously abounding. For me, embracing this natural flow produces nothing but a joyful alive feeling.......by its very nature this powerful movement seems to desire expansion. How great this is. It wants to be active. This flow will sustain me forever as I vibrate and move within it .... ever constant .....sometimes to the degree that I can not contain my delight in the intense embrace of it. In this, I am discovering my limitations and I am thrilled. Yes... I am the allowing of limitations to my being alive to reveal themselves and to be worked through, and released, so that I may have more joy and well being in my life.
We have a profound effect on one another’s body as we move forward in the flow of life. A friend asked me the other day.....”How can you always be so happy all the time?” The question struck me funny, and for a split second I felt as if I was going to have to defend my mood, for I was hearing from this fellow, a veiled demand for me to stop being happy. I responded by telling him....”I am feeling happy because in my body I feel the joy of my life!” I made a decision in the moment to not respond to his negativity! I thought to myself: I am my own authority here...I will not stop being happy when I am happy. I felt in my gut a sensation.....an in the moment cellular burst ...an awakening! I will not respond to death in this moment....I will not back down....I will not play small.
Remarkably this simple encounter with another live body, provided a huge opportunity to embrace a limitation to being alive for me that I have suffered with my whole life, which sounds something like: “John you should not be”.....or “John you are not worth being”. I do not know the core origin or incident if any, that has fostered this deep ache in me, but the point is that my cells have been holding on to a feeling of rejection that no longer can be sustained in my physically immortal body. I am the letting go of, all the shame and hatred that still resides with in the cells of my physical body. Bernadeane’s expression from a People Unlimited event from months ago still echoes in my body......“Be 100% positive about your bodies ......the Greatness is already there .......Receive it”. She so amazingly inspires me to claim my right to BE in my body ....demanding the perfection that is available therein in such an exultant way.
We have to claim our power . We have to demand our joy. We can direct happiness to our bodies...and when one recognizes and fully embraces the impressionable touch and power that resonates within the body... great freedom is at hand. My physical body is meant to express this joy and abundance. Why qualify life with anything less than that. It is a treasure. It is my life. My flesh is meant to commune and bond with other like bodies.....and when I give in to that movement I am full of happiness. My body has risen up since I declared my physical immortality. I am more in tune. I am more aware. I am a healthier body. I am a richer body. I am physically immortal. I am never going to die. Death is not meant for me. I have always held in my physical body the feeling that I am not meant to suffer. I am not meant to get sick. As a little child, I remember counseling my mother on a day when she was feeling “poorly”. “Ma.....what is wrong?... what hurts?... tell me”. I felt my concern for her deep within my physical body. I don’t know from where it came....perhaps I was triggered by something in my outer world ....I do not know. But it was a real intense feeling... I felt a natural urge in my body to express my desire for something more for my mother. Thru my intention to console ....I became one flesh with my mother in my expression to her. We have the power to heal each other. James Strole speaks eloquently on this idea at almost every People unlimited meeting in some measure or another......”Who are you tonight? Why are you here? Why are you alive? What do you feel about yourself and every cell in your body? Do you feel you can give life to another person in this room? Can you stir the cells and atoms of another persons body?”. James inspires me to be alive within and beyond the immortal community at People Unlimited. In his embrace, the immortal flow of life energy that turns me on is magnified.....it is intensified. And I am raised up. As we rise so does our capacity told more joy........high up that is all there is!
I am grateful that I am a clearly able body and that I have put my flesh in the mist of other bodies who are moving in the direction that calls for a greater capacity to be alive! I am choosing to engage with Bernadeane and James Strole and their direction within the People Unlimited community because they are victorious! They are masters in generating a joyful unlimited living on a daily basis. Their bodies are moving in a momentum actively engaging other bodies towards the very unfolding of a healthy, joyous and prosperous high life. That turns me on! That turns me on! That turns me on! We are forever moving to push back death. In this movement I am with them....looking for the same expansion....the same desire to live full out.......free from limitation......forever!
With Love, John Roman. Raise your vibration to contain more joy at our next People Unlimited event.
The recent People Unlimited weekend event this June highlighted the futility of analyzing and talking about our relationship issues with our loved ones. Different couples and several family members took turns in a de facto "hot seat", while the rest of us looked on and squirmed, watching our own psychodramas being played out with different names and faces. Blaming, apologizing, withholding, forgiving... wow — what else is life, right?
After a particularly poignant exchange between one couple ended in a stalemate, someone else stood up and exclaimed that there has never been, and never will be, any resolution of our issues by talking them out. Our only recourse, he said, is to become larger than the issues that make us feel small, and thereby allow our bodies to express. Someone else chimed in, saying that the best way for two people to expand their communication is to hold one another.
I was really moved, because this is exactly the best advice I have ever received (numerous times), and Diana and I still practice it (most of the time), and teach it in our classes.
In the article below, I expand upon this framework, and share an actual exercise that intimate partners may engage in with each other, a practice that was passed along to me by Kerry and Diane Riley of Australia. I also refer you to their excellent book, Tantric Secrets for Men. The exercise (they call it a "ritual"), may appear a little wordy at first, but it is well worth taking the time to read and practice.
And for all of you reading along and wondering what any of this has to do with physical immortality, it has long been observed that toxic chemistry in our body, brought on by negative thinking and suppressed emotions, is a major cause of disease and death. Breathing, getting grounded, and receiving the touch of another body is Life enhancing. This is a view that must be tested, not believed, so please practice! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Introduction: When talking is NOT working for you and your beloved, it's a good time for each of you to remember your own precious body instead, and physically connect with each other. It's important that the two of you will have made a prior agreement to engage this exercise in times of conflict. It will ground you in your own body, refresh your innate sensual passion, and enliven the expansive and free connection that brought the two of you together in the first place.
So — if your partner requests this practice, even though you might be completely triggered and withdrawn, you will breathe and say "yes". It's okay to notice you don't want to, or you're just not "feeling it" — say yes to the sacred decision you made to honor the peace in your own body, and the pleasurable flow you share with your partner. No matter what. Say yes to keeping the passion for life and the physical bond of loving between the two of you alive.
Refusing to honor this agreement sabotages your own integrity and threatens the very juiciness of safety that your relationship is built upon. Your partner is trusting you enough to drop the argument and ask for harmony. Listen to your partner deeply, and realize that your Life is more important than your ego; your Love is more important than being right. Suppose it is you who has enough free attention to let go first. You could say, “This is not getting us anywhere. I want to be in harmony with you. Let’s do the Bonding Practice. We can discuss this stuff later when we are not so upset. Let’s put our bodies together.”
You (the requesting partner in this case), lie on your back while your partner lies besides you and rests her head on your chest. Place your right arm around her in a nurturing manner. She places her right hand on your heart, and you put your left hand on top of hers. Bend your right knee and place it between her legs, touching her sexual center. Her right leg is bent over yours so her knee touches your genital area.
This connects your heart center (open to give and receive love again), with your sexual center, opening you to vulnerability and intimacy. For her, being held in the nurturing position tends to open her heart center again. And by touching her sexual center with your leg, it reverses her normal reactive behavior to withdraw and shut down.
Use the breath to let go of any tension. If you are very upset, you will find that you will be tensing your body and holding your breath, or you will feel your partner doing this. Breathe in with a long, deep breath through the nose and then sigh as you breathe out through the mouth – ahh! Repeat this at least 10 times, co-ordinating your breaths if you can; otherwise make sure you are both doing the deep breathing. Never allow just one of you to be doing it; both must participate.
As you breathe out, let go of any anger, resentments, or the need to be right. Release all tension in the body, especially in the jaw, neck and shoulders. As you continue with the breathing, allow your mind to become quiet, allow the inner chatter about the argument to be dismissed. Take your awareness instead to the contact points between your physical bodies, especially your opening heart, and feel love, compassion, caring and forgiveness. Feel the warmth of your partner’s hand on your heart center. Focus on nurturing your partner like a child who has been hurt. Focus on that part of her that you really love beyond the part that has upset you.
Partner B ( your lover in this case), focuses on being nurtured and cared for and then shifts her attention to her hand on your heart, healing it and opening you more to love again. If it feels appropriate she can gently move her hand from your heart center to your sexual center, gently cupping this area for a few minutes, while you keep your hand on your heart center. This allows harmony between the emotions and physical sexuality to develop once more. You now exchange roles with your partner, gently repositioning before beginning. You need to spend at least five minutes in each role for it to be effective.
Both turn and face each other and hold each other naturally without your hands holding the heart or sexual centers. Continue to breathe and let go, but do not say anything. Gaze gently into each other’s eyes with love and compassion while tuning into your own “higher self”, where having to be right or having to win the argument is not important. What is important is to keep eye contact and be soft, vulnerable and see the part of your beloved that wants to be loved and wants to love. Act as healers for each other, showing compassion, care and concern for your relationship.
Keep breathing gently and after a minute or so and when appropriate, one says “I’m sorry (we were fighting). I love you”. The other listens, breaths in and internally accepts this. Then she says “I’m sorry too and I love you.” Finish with a hug or a kiss.
It is most important not to say anything like ”I forgive you, but next time...” This would blow the whole process. Do not talk about the issue, just hug and kiss and suggest a cup of tea or a walk. Maybe several hours later, or the next day, you can return and deal with the issue. Dealing with it immediately after the bonding practice is dangerous because you are very open and sensitive when you have trusted enough to say “sorry”.
After you have completed this process, you may not even need to discuss the issue again because you will find that the re-established harmony and balance may well provide a new viewpoint or attitude. If you do discuss it, you may come up with other solutions to the problem which you may not have reached while in a reactive mode.
In reality, neither of you are perfect. You both contributed to the disharmony in some way. By looking within and forgiving and by balancing the energies between you, very often circumstances begin to change.
The Power of Surrender
What you are doing in these three steps is surrendering your ego and honoring your body's true feelings to keep the sexual passion and loving bond between you alive. Vulnerability is not compromise. To surrender and let go is to open to who you always already are, prior to your story. As a result, your relationship is revealed to be a means of honoring not only your needs and wants, but your highest truth.
To love your neighbor (or your partner) as yourself, requires that you freely love your self first. It's all about you!
Did you know the internal circadian clock, our body's natural clock, can affect lifespan? A presentation by Marina Antoch, Ph.D., Roswell Park Cancer Institute, during the 43rd Annual Meeting of the American Aging Association (AGE) held May 30-June 2, 2014, presented the mechanistic link between the internal circadian clock, chronic inflammation and aging. Complete understanding of this functional interconnection is critically important for developing therapeutic and preventive strategies to treat age-related pathologies, said Dr. Antoch.
"Biological clock human" by NoName
Our circadian clock, does not only affect our sleep cycles, but also weight, body temperature, hormones and other functions of the body. We live in a driven world, our senses are been (over)stimulated constantly. Paying attention and listening to our physiological needs of sleep and rest, and not operating in a drive, where the body is constantly being pushed, shouldn't be a matter of convenience or vanity.
Being aware of the deeper, long-term effects of a lifestyle that lacks nourishment, not only of food, but rest, peace, and attention, is imperative. Could you then do something small every day, that would help you prevent heart disease at no cost? Be more productive and successful on the long term, have more joy and happiness? Expand your lifespan tremendously by just "listening to your gut"?
When do we stop and take a look?
"Death is a curable disease." James Strole.
The Annual Meeting featured the latest scholarship and research findings in the field of aging research from more than 70 leading experts. The event has long been recognized as a launching pad for researchers to share cutting-edge discoveries into the underlying mechanisms of the causes of aging as well as the possible breakthroughs in finding ways to increase health span.
"The talks at this year's meeting were of exceptionally high quality with really new exciting insights on the role of gut fauna in healthy aging, protein biology, and why our daily rhythms get disrupted during aging and the widespread ramifications thereof in inflammation and biochemical signaling," said Rochelle Buffenstein, Ph.D., president and meeting chair of AGE.
Among the other weekend's highlights were:
- An in-depth look by Allon Canaan, Ph.D., MSc, Yale School of Medicine, at the newly discovered FAT10 gene and how it might revolutionize the field of aging research.
- A series of presentations on the role mitochondria, the cellular compartments that generate the vast majority of the energy that fuels daily activities, plays in aging.
- A presentation by Kenneth B. Storey, F.R.S.C., Carleton University, on why metabolic depression in long-lived turtles leads to an increase in lifespan.

Who is in your life? It's a wonderful thing to have people that feel you, and want you, and need you, but it doesn't happen very much in this world. Not for the long term anyway and I'm talking about forever. But I'm not just talking about forever. I'm talking about the community of people we have that are together forever, and find with one another a feeling and sound of the body that you can't find anywhere else. And it's ongoing and exciting because we're continuously experiencing one another. We get better together and the more we're together the more fun it is to be together. And that's not what usually happens in this world either. Usually people become boring to one another or they don't have an ongoing feeling, an excitement when they see each other. But this is what I feel. An excitement that is eternal and ongoing all the time.

What is living Unlimited? Living unlimited isn't about a life outside us somewhere, It's about people being unlimited together. It's we the people moving unlimited together for the first time. Unlimited movement, unlimited passion, unlimited love, unlimited feelings for one another. Unlimited expansion, unlimited touching, unlimited feeling in our own bodies. Hunger to be an unlimited person. Be so tired of being around limited people. Be so tired of your own limitations!
James Strole. The Most Positive Man in The World.
It's so vital to be a strong individual in every way. To have muscle in your body, to have good tissue, to have good skin, to have good thinking, to have solid emotions, to really feel the strength of your body. To really feel the clarity of your movement. To not be blown off course by every little emotion that comes up. To be able to feel the emotions in your body but not be knocked out of life for half a day, or half a week, or a whole month or whatever the case may be. To feel the solidity of your person. That's what being unlimited is about. You begin to think in completely different terms. Instead of seeing something that you don't like about yourself as negative you think, wow, that's something I need to change, that's something I can change because I'm an unlimited body.

We want to share an article that one of our members sent to us stating, "Science proves that DNA can be reprogrammed by words and frequencies"
We have known and been talking about the power of the spoken word now for many years, understanding the effect it can have on the human body. When we first started speaking about unlimited living and physical immortality, we could see the difference in people when we gave them our words of inspiration and told them they were unlimited. Over time we could actually witness the physical differences in these people, as they began to blossom and grow more alive and vibrant in our environment. We realized forty years ago how important an environment of unlimited and uncontrolled expression coming from the soul is.
Now this article states that the human DNA, throughout the entire body, is a biological internet and is far superior in many aspects to artificial internets. The article shows that the transference of energy through the power of words can penetrate through and around the world, connecting with other like minds and bodies. We believe this energy even transmits into the universe itself.
A cell phone or Internet transmission can pierce through walls and many other kinds of barriers. You can be sitting in some kind of enclosure and still get cell phone reception most of the time, but sometimes not because of the weakness of the frequency. The human word and energy frequency is a constant that is not weakened by distance or barriers, only by how receptive the person is to taking it in.
So think about this as you are going through your day, how powerful your words and your energy are and how they can transform you and the world.
Can you actually speak and think yourself into a physically immortal life?
Bernie and Jim.
Living free of mental control is a wonderful thing. The only people I have ever experienced this with are immortal. Most human beings are like ticking time-bombs. They walk around their whole lives with the unconscious knowledge that some day they are going to die. People don’t think about that much and often will dismiss you or even fight you when you try to enlighten them to their state of being, but that does not change the fact that the body feels the weight of the sentence of death every day it is alive and dulls the senses to prepare for loss of all kinds. Living with the belief system of death is very suppressive of aliveness and joy, but since most people have never known anything else it’s just accepted as the norm. No-one has really lifted the veil to explore what a human body without that limitation would be like, until now. We are the people doing this, literally going where no-one has ever been before. There are innate creative powers of the human body when freed from the daily reality of living with a death sentence and the inevitable fears that arise from that. When the body can function from somewhere more vast and inclusive than just the programmed human mind, there is a change that takes place that produces great clarity and focus of thought, feeling and action. First you have to be delivered from the mental prison. That requires a human touch from someone who has crossed over the death barrier and is moving free themselves. I wish I could convey to you the glorious rest that you will experience in your nervous system when an immortal penetrates to your soul and lifts your burden… the possibilities you will glimpse and the new hungers that will begin to squirm inside you. If I could just open a door for you right now to another world, would your natural sense of adventure and curiosity that maybe you remember from your childhood take over? Would you run through eager to explore, or would you dismiss immortality as stupid and close the door behind you?
Immortal bodies are nothing short of treasures. People that are willing to face everything and be vulnerable and intimate with themselves and others are sacred to me. People that go beyond a self-centered life to reach out and take others with them to greater heights are simply precious. They are the life-blood of this planet. Once you have tasted the sweetness and illumination of the virtue that pours from an immortal body, you are never the same. It is the genius of immortals that has realized that human nourishment is the missing ingredient and the key to living abundantly forever. Without it a person slowly or quickly dries out, shrivels up and eventually blows away.
