Founding Director of The Sacred Academy of Geo-Energetics (SAGE), Michael Henry Dunn is a human rights advocate, scholar, author, musician, and a globally recognized commentator on issues of human rights and the restoration of the Rule of Law. As a member of Self-Realization Fellowship, he has practiced meditation for some thirty years, leading meditation and chants at spiritual centers worldwide - experiences he wove into his book, "Romancing the Divine - The Art and Science of Falling in Love with God." A classically-trained, award winning actor, he enjoyed a fifteen-year career in the theater in works ranging from original dramas to Shakespeare to musical theater. After moving to Los Angeles from his native Chicago, he worked in the Story Department at CBS Entertainment in the Movies and Miniseries Division, and authored several screenplays.
A recognized authority on the Shakespeare authorship, he has lectured at universities in the US and Europe on Elizabethan literature and history. As a composer and vocalist, he has recorded two highly praised albums of devotional Yoga chant in the kirtan style of India.
Inspired by the Sacred Activism teachings of renowned scholar and author Andrew Harvey, Michael undertook a risky journey to Jakarta, Indonesia in the spring of 2013 to cover the unfolding exposure of the Global Collateral Accounts. A five-year campaign to help launch a new international court of human rights followed, in the spirit of a restoration of the Code of Chivalry as a meaningful moral and geopolitical force.
This led ultimately to Michael's role as Founding Director of The Sacred Academy of Geo-Energetics (SAGE) in Crestone, Colorado, as a teaching and research institution dedicated to Sacred Activism training and global healing. Michael’s life work is to balance the necessary inner spiritual work of psychological integration and direct communion with Spirit with a meaningful contribution to the betterment of humanity and the lessening of suffering. He is currently at work directing "Blue Star Rising," a groundbreaking documentary on the hidden spiritual life of music legend Elvis Presley.
