I. The Homefree.
II. More Peaceniks.
III. Cultural Enrichment.
V. More Mind Tools.
VI. More Web Tools.
Note on all the Sections: look at the “About Us” section.
I. The Homefree.
Note on The Homefree Section: Many sites shown won’t be from your area. These are included so that communities may look at each other’s Programs for the poor, which is,
obviously, what most homefree people are. Also: not all the sites have changed over to
the new usage ‘homefree’. Many of the sites are old. An e-mail or two to them from you,
dear reader, will be useful in this regard.
www.afsc.org/pwork/0200/0208.htm }about the Street Spirit in SF. This link used to go to a clearinghouse that the Quakers sponsor but has been changed. See also: http://www.afsc.org/story/afsc-support-lesbian-gay-bisexual-and-transgender-lgbt-people }peacemaking work among Quakers.
www.agrm.org/miss-www.html }Association of Gospel Rescue Missions. DL 2011 2012 Update: http://www.agrm.org/agrm/default.asp }”Today, we’re still assisting those who help the hungry, homeless, abused, and addicted in Jesus’ name—but in a whole new way.
If you need help to locate an overnight shelter, recovery program, or maybe just a place where someone will listen to your story and give counsel, you’ll find it here.”

http://www.bapd.org/gco-ry-1.html }Community Homeless Alliance Ministry. “One of the few grassroots, urban ministries for the homeless in the Bay Area — where some of the highest rents and lowest vacancy rates in the nation have driven thousands of individuals and families into homelessness. CHAM’s ministry seeks to empower those with the least and invites all people, rich and poor, to join together in creating equality, justice, and abundance for all.”

www.driftersonline.com/ }viva La Web. Their own site. 2011 Update: this site seems to be made by someone who lived in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, so, evidently Harmony travelled there. It has a new video on it, about 1 minute.
http://www.ebcap.org/ProgramsServices/CoalitionfortheHomeless/tabid/152/Default.aspx }East Bay Coalition for the Homefree. “East Bay Coalition for the Homeless housing program provides apartments for homeless families with children, combined with case management and supportive services. The East Bay Coalition for the Homeless has 18 apartments in the East Bay area. They are located in East Providence, Warren and Bristol.”

www.innvision.org/ }housing in the Silicon Valley. They house more than 27,000 people at 26 locations! Alas, they just closed their Menlo Park housing facility.
http://insightprisonproject.org/ }why is this on the homefree List? Well, being in prison makes a man or woman homefree! There is still huge stigma attached to serving out one’s debt to society, and people come out with no homes, no jobs, no family, and no friends. So… this project helps them to get back into society, and not to go back in to prison (that’s what they call recidivism). Highly Recommended. “Insight Prison Project transforms the lives of those impacted by incarceration through programs designed to develop behavior inspired by insight, accountability and compassion.”
http://www.meetingground.org/ }Maryland and Delaware work to house the homefree. Meeting Ground is a community, rooted in traditions of faith and promise, in which families with children, women, and men experiencing homefreeness are welcome – as are all others who are seeking or in need.
http://www.mbaproject.org/index.php?c=About }The Mind, Body, and Awareness Program. Clearly this is work that helps the homefree, and helps others to avoid becoming homefree. “At the Mind Body Awareness Project we believe at-risk & incarcerated youth have the potential to take control of their actions and fully transform their lives – they are literally one breath away from making better decisions. As a non-profit organization, we have developed a unique mental training program consisting of mindfulness meditation and emotional intelligence exercises designed to strengthen youth’s minds, relieve their toxic stress, and build their ability to make better decisions.” Highly Recommended.

NVC begins by assuming that we are all compassionate by nature and that violent strategies—whether verbal or physical—are learned behaviors taught and supported by the prevailing culture. NVC also assumes that we all share the same, basic human needs, and that each of our actions are a strategy to meet one or more of these needs. People who practice NVC have found greater authenticity in their communication, increased understanding, deepening connection and conflict resolution.

http://www.eskimo.com/~billb/weird/wclose.html }this, too, might have gone in the High Weirdness category, but “Skepticism is a primary tool of science. We’d be hypocrites if we never directed a skeptical eye towards Scientific Skepticism itself. Denied imperfections and errors are free to grow without limit, and Skepticism is not immune to this problem. Unbridled gullibility can destroy science, but unbridled disbelief is no less a threat because it brings both a tolerance for bias and ridicule as well as the suppression of untested new ideas. Better to take a middle road between total closed-mindedness and total gullibility. Practice pragmatism, pursue humility, and maintain a clear, honest, and continuing view of ourselves and the less noble of our own behaviors.”
http://www.fourmilab.ch/rpkp/ }this site is a little more serious than we expected. They do, among other things, scientific experiments and tests of so-called psychic phenomena, such as psychokinesis. Some of you are already scoffing; we almost put this in “High Weirdness” ourselves. You, the site reader, are invited to perform an experiment of your own.

He worked in developmental biology at Cambridge University, where he was a Fellow of Clare College.
http://www.friesian.com/types.htm }so, here is another repetition of the Briggs-Myers Typology, after C.G. Jung. What is of some interest here, is that the writer tried to show the relationship(s) between this typology and the Confucian or Chinese systems, similar to the Chinese Astrology. Also similar to the Five Elements systems, but not quite either of those. For those of you who are reading up on these things.

Maybe, you won’t find peace there, other than, say, mechanical calming of the body through changed breathing and the stillness of sitting, etc. That is, it is normal for the mind to busy working all the time.

So, this site is ‘mind tools’ twice. Of course, the homepage of it is here: http://starvethematrix.com/ }but the mind tools are mostly under ‘esoterica’. Most people today, living in our culture that conditions them to greed and barbarism, that is, American culture, read ‘useless’, ‘unimportant’, or at the very least, ‘unscientific’, when they see the word ‘esoteric’, and that is unfortunate. Esoteric actually means, ‘belonging to an inner circle’, and originally referred to Greek wisdom-teachings, sometime called ‘philosphy’, that weren’t exoteric, or shared with ‘an outer circle’, i.e., made public.

Dr. Holmes has had some contact with the Work, that much is clear; but he still spends too much charging at political and governmental windmills (see Don Quixote). People in the work are usually quieter and more serious than all that. Included here, though, owing to the service he has done us with his critiques.
http://www.zeropoint.ca/HowtoKnowMrGod.html }finally, a good critique of Deepak Chopra’s teachings and foolishness, which hopefully will be good for him and his followers. Mayber a good doctor, he should have just stayed with that, and not gone on wild journeys with his writings, teachings, and seminars. More hero-worship we don’t need in our culture, etc. All that encourages fantasizing and impedes clear and sane thinking. http://www.zeropoint.ca/microcosm_4-2pribram.htm }here he gives a fairly interesting critique of Pribram holographic brain/mind model. We’ve spent time thinking about Pribram’s and David Bohm’s holographic models, including for perception, thought, consciousness, etc., and find them interesting. It is rare to read book reviews by someone who is intelligent these days. We hope that you enjoy this one.

http://www.everythingandnothingproject.com/p/everything-and-nothing-source-materials.html }Jorge Luis Borges was an Argentinian writer, essayist, poet and translator. He was tremendously influential, writing intricate poems, short stories, and essays that instantiated concepts of dizzying power. His work embraced the “character of unreality in all literature.” The essay collection Borges y la Matemática by Guillermo Martínez outlines how Borges used concepts from mathematics in his work. Other books such as The Unimaginable Mathematics of Borges’ Library of Babel by William Goldbloom Bloch, and Unthinking Thinking: Jorge Luis Borges, Mathematics, and the New Physics by Floyd Merrell also explore this relationship. Some of his short stories, from which we have drawn inspiration in this project, are reproduced below – The Library of Babel, On Exactitude in Science, and The Aleph.

http://archaeodisasters.blogspot.com/ }Disaster Archaeology, an upcoming interdisciplinary science, emerges and establishes itself as a uniquely significant part of the fields that deal with environmental studies, hazards, risk management, prevention policies and mitigation plans all over the world. Considering that the functions and the results of disasters, the human response to hazards and the carrying capacity of natural and human ecosystems do vary considerably in space and time, modern scientists can detect the spatial and temporal distribution of hazards.
http://archaeodisastersandhumanpsyche.blogspot.com/ }Today, we should pay closer attention to the culture of crisis/ disaster, past or present, and look at how the disaster inscribes itself on the psyche and reconfigures hyper-modern subjectivity while also examining how politics must biologically constitute itself when faced with the catastrophe that is always to come. The archaeodisasters’ story needs to be told through the meta-optics of politics/influence, science/conviction, vulnerability/recovery and technology/nature.

Much of the material considered by the Electric Universe is peer-reviewed, but not all (see Speculative Theories, below).”

1. Q: Isn’t this List just repeating the Links from Harmony’s site?
A: No, the Links have been pursued to any interesting sites of relevance,
and the DLs weeded out and so forth, for your shopping convenience.
2. Q: What are DLs?
A: See JKU-I and JKU-II for more information about these.
3. Q: When was the word ‘homeless’ officially changed to ‘homefree’?
A: In 2004, in the poem, Why I Sit. But the trend away from words
of the form “-less” and toward those of the form “-free”, has been
happening for about 30 years already.
4. Q: I noticed that your List is different from Harmony’s. What did you do
besides remove the dead links and lost domain names?
A: We also tried to remove duplications by area or category, place items
into correct categories, and avoid geographical areas too distant from the U.S.A.
5. Q: What’s a Homefree Refuge?
A: This is, of course, a place where Homefree persons receive temporary housing.
6. Q: Why have the Usenet and FTP sites been omitted?
A: Because the typical reader (of this document) won’t know what they are or how
to use them. Restricting the List to Web URLs makes it simpler for everyone.
7. Q: How did you decide what the best of Harmony’s Links are?
A: See also the answers to the above questions. Readers of JKU are a select list,
and this is not for the general public. Sites that folks can or most likely would have found by themselves are omitted; obvious examples are, online dictionaries, newspapers, e- zines, and the like. All print publications today are chock-full of URLs and have been for 10 or 15 years. JKU attempts to bring to you, the sites you won’t be seeing otherwise, music you might not have heard, videos you might not have seen. We also want to present the core of Harmony’s vision, without all the redundancies and window- dressing. In some cases, her dead-links have been replaced by URLs of still extant websites.
8. Q: Where did Harmony find all her homefree links?
A: She travelled all over the country, and recorded the websites of places that were helping the homefree, etc. This was in about 1998; the authors met her and her companion in 1999.
9. Q: So, how old is Harmony’s website? How old is your List?
A: According to Network Solutions, the site (http://harmony.kieding.org/index6.html ) was made on December 1, 2002, about one year after they moved. We met in San Luis Obispo. According to Netcraft, the site was first seen (by them) in August, 2011. The site was last refreshed on the server, probably by the netblock owner, today, December 19, 2012. Our List (http://sdrv.ms/y2PQu6 ) was made in 2007 and first released on July 30, 2007.
10. Q: Is there a way that we can contact Harmony?
A: We aren’t sure. She seems to us to be deceased, but we have no proof of that. Her last known e-mail was email@example.com , and that of her partner, Bjorn Tore, was firstname.lastname@example.org ; he was her site’s administrator. Bjorn Tore was also the site’s listed registrant, and he lived in Tonsberg, Norway (http://www.1911encyclopedia.org/Tonsberg ), at that time. 11. Q: So, how can we contact you? A: We recommend using our e-mail for that. Jae Kamel: email@example.com Jone Dae: firstname.lastname@example.org . 12. Q: So where is this poem, Why I Sit? A: It’s at http://sdrv.ms/UEIb50 .
