Private Sessions

Jef Crab
If you are experiencing an obstacle in your spiritual development or just want to further that development, I invite you to join me in a 2-hour private session. Current available times are June 19 - 22: total cost $169. As my stay in Raleigh is very limited in time, I will primarily advise in such a way that direct steps can be taken. Long-term guidance or apprenticeship is not realistic at this point. A private session starts in general with an inter-vision, i.e., an exchange of information...

How I Started Photographing Clouds

People ask about the background of the cloud photography. In the 1980s I had recurrent dreams of unbelievable sky panoramas. Generally, the dreams showed me walking alone. I would look up and see clouds that moved in shifting, paintinglike formations, which I knew could not be real. Like a kaleidoscope of large, intricate scenes, they continued to change – making ever-new pictures. How could this obvious impossibility go unnoticed? I thought in the dreams. In the early 1990s I began to take cl...
