Announcement to the Message Company Community

Dear Friends of the Message Company,

This is a message of both joy and sadness - a paradox that often comes at once. We are greatly saddened to share with you that the founder of the Message Company, James Berry, passed away on September 23, 2008.

Befitting Jim's beliefs, we are certain he would want us to celebrate his transformation to a higher consciousness. So, in that spirit, we held a memorial gathering in Santa Fe on September 27th and a Memorial Fund has been created for scholarships and research and development on consciousness. Those who feel moved to contribute may send donations to:

Wells Fargo
4384 Rodeo Rd.
Santa Fe, NM 87505
Make checks payable to: Account #8123535026
Memo line: For the Benefit of James Berry Memorial Fund

For those of you that didn't know, Jim was on a waiting list for an organ transplant. He got the call and underwent transplant surgery and, unfortunately, his body rejected the first organ. He died to this world and was born into the next while awaiting the possibility of another organ match. He passed away very gently and peacefully with friends and loved ones by his side.

As we're sure most of you are aware, James' vision and cutting-edge thinking created the international conferences on consciousness - ranging from healing, business, shamanism, sacred sexuality to altered states, the arts and science.

It is with joy that we announce that James' vision and legacy will continue. James has entrusted his company to us, Ken and Marcia Berry, his brother and sister-in-law. We assure you of our commitment, along with the dedication of the talented team at the Message Company, to move this work forward, expand and energize the vision.

This is the place for you to share remembrances, thoughts and blessings for James. Click on the Comments link to add your own comment to this post.

We will also devote time for remembrances at the next series of conferences - especially with The Third International Sound Healing Conference which is less than 6 weeks away (pre-conferences start on 11/14/08).

We thank you for your past support and look forward to your participation at future conferences.

Yours in Spirit,

Ken and Marcia Berry
