From the little I read about their "Institute", they do not mention any of these things. I couldn't find a lot of information about these people and what I found, it is a drag to read but my first impression is that most of it is pseudo-science.
Arcos Cielos Corporation was created for the development of New Paradigms in Science, Education, Fine Arts, Global Ecology, Human Potential Development, and Future-Science Technology. This non-profit 501 (c)(3) Research Center is situated in Sedona, Arizona…an area noted for its unique combination of spectacular natural beauty, sunny climate, and peaceful solitude.
The Founders, Elliott and Sharon Maynard, together constitute a unique resource of Creative, Scientific and Technical Expertise. Elliott’s cultural and educational background spans a broad spectrum of professional skills and experience. His educational credentials include: a Bachelor of Arts from Washington and Lee University, a Masters of Science in Zoology from the University of Miami Florida, and Advanced Graduate Studies at the University of Miami Marine Institute, Nova Oceanographic Center, and the University of Costa Rica. He earned a Ph.D. Degree in Marine Sciences and Consciousness Research from the University of the Trees in Boulder Creek, California, and served on the faculties of Adelphi University and Dowling College in New York.
Elliott’s scientific background includes extensive field research on Tropical Marine Ecosystems, and Behavior of Coral Reef Fishes and Invertebrates. He studied Tropical Biology and Rainforest Ecology at the Organization for Tropical Studies in Costa Rica with renowned global forestry expert, Dr. Leslie Holdridge, and subsequently went on to pioneer the field of Giant Freshwater Shrimp Aquaculture in Florida and Puerto Rico. In 1980-81 Elliott worked as a Research Scientist at the Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research, where he played a key role in Project Management, and the Development of Advanced Aquaculture Systems, working with 1200 scientists and technical specialists from around the world.
Sharon Tanemura Maynard, born in Western Canada, brought a unique international flavor to Arcos Cielos and its innovative programs. Through her Japanese cultural background, she was skilled at bridging Eastern and Western Viewpoints, and integrating them into programs for new ways of thinking and effective action. Her educational background includes an ARCT Degree from Toronto’s Royal Conservatory of Music. and studies in Communications at Simon Frasier University in Vancouver. She also earned a Bachelor of Arts in Communications from the University the Trees Consciousness Research Institute. Her unique gifts in the areas of Financial and Creative Structuring were passed on to her from her grandfather, who was a Buddhist Priest. Sharon’s special abilities were a key factor in many of the breakthroughs incorporated into the Transformative Programs developed at Arcos Cielos Research Center.
In 1989, following a decade of pioneering work of Giant Freshwater Shrimp Aquaculture in Florida and Puerto Rico, the Maynards turned their attention to Native American Education. Working as Education Specialists for the Hopi Tribe of Arizona, their efforts resulted in a comprehensive set of Goals and Standards for the new $22 million Hopi Jr./Sr. High School, as well as a unique Hopi Cultural Curriculum, which integrated Hopi and Conventional Western Worldviews into their existing educational system. During this time-period Elliott began developing a futuristic Educational System called The University of the Future Project®. Other subsequent Projects included integration of Alternative Medical Systems with Conventional Medicine.
Besides being an expert Scuba Diver, Underwater Photographer and Videographer, Elliott has applied his past experience to update his earlier field research in the Marine Environment. During the past few years he and Sharon have made numerous research trips to Tropical Islands and Remote Atolls, to study and document the changes and current “health” of Earth’s Coral Reef Ecosystems and their responses to the Pressures of Human Activities and Shifts in Global Climate Patterns.
The Maynards continued their efforts to develop several unique, co-evolutionary Paradigms for the Third Millennium, designed to advance the Human Social Consciousness, and to provide new, effective Strategies for Transformative Thought and Action. They worked for over two decades to develop a Master Paradigm called Future-Science Technology®. This Master Paradigm effectively magnifies existing human capabilities and integrates them into a Practical Method for Quantum Success and Breakthrough Achievement. Future-Science Technology essentially re-connects Humans with their Natural Planetary Heritage and instills a renewed focus for achieving a sustainable balance with the Global Biosphere.
The Arcos Cielos Global Ecology Project® is a New Paradigm for the protection, restoration, and rejuvenation of Earth’s Ecosystems. This new Paradigm integrates Environmental Education, Ecologically Appropriate Technologies, and Sustainable Lifestyles by applying innovative applications of New Technologies and Alternative Sciences. Other Projects include: Future-Science Art,® the Creation of “Living ArtForms” for the Third Millennium; and Paraphysical Fitness®, a Wholistic Fitness Program, which focuses on the development of the Physical and Subtle-Energy Bodies.
This inflated CV of bullshit is interesting, though... I mean, interesting to dissect it and try to find out more about their "achievements" in research.
The first thing that calls my attention is how pretentious this shit is and how little information there is on their "research center", which claims to be non-profit but I start to wonder how do you maintain a research center that is aming to develop new paradigms in Science, Education, Fine Arts, Global Ecology..... They are all so many different fields and for that you would need several different teams of researchers working on projects, so how do you pay those people?? And mostly, what would be this research for?
Scientific research is not done for nothing. In general, it is connected to the public politics or with the State, but I can't find any connection between what this people do and the American state. So do they investigate these things just for the sake of it?? Who pays those investigations??
They mention only one thing they did, some educational project for the Hopi Tribe of Arizona..... I don't know if that's real or not and which are the results of it.
The universities where they've got their degrees do not sound familiar to me and all those degrees also sound like bullshit.
I have also dedicated 5 minutes to skip through this BS powerpoint by Elliot and lol, it's 79 pages of blah blah. Not one single point made. Only bullets with inflated crap, as it is his style.
