Sunray - Part 2 - The Rise of Natureboy

 

 

In the prior episode we heard from Sunray who described her decision to covertly leave Canada to join a Costa Rican based spiritual group. While her explanation provided a better perspective to view her role in this story, the questions I had surrounding the group's other prominent figure remained piled high.

Throughout the media's coverage of this event Natureboy was portrayed as a villainous cult leader who held control over a brainwashed Kayla. After watching his videos and researching his history, I quickly realized he was far more complicated than that.

Over the course of Two episodes I will use excerpts of my conversation with Natureboy and attempt to answer the big question I've been asking…

Who is Natureboy… and how does an American model turned stripper end up leading a religious group in Costa Rica?

In The Rise Of Natureboy, I will cover his life as Bishop, and end with his spiritual awakening as Natureboy. A follow up episode, Who in Natureboy will continue with his decision to leave the United States and lead up to the present day.

In the days that followed, the media would broadcast a back and forth battle between the people calling for Kayla's return and the Costa Rican religious group she now called her family.

In this episode, we will hear the timeline of this unique story and hear from Sunray who recently returned to Newfoundland.

When Clarenville RCMP Constable Jim Blackwood responded to a report of an unusual object in the sky, he expected it to be the next in a series of recent reports all of which resulted in nothing more than a confused citizen describing a vague light.

However, When he arrived to the scene to find a group of mystified witnesses viewing the still clearly visible object with binoculars, he knew this report was unique.

The incredible events which unfolded during the roughly two hour long sighting would fuel both an international media whirlwind and a localized UFO craze.

The Shag Harbour UFO Incident - Part 2 - Discussion with Generation Why

In this Follow up episode I am joined by Justin and Aaron, hosts of the popular Generation Why Podcast. During our conversation we provide our thoughts on the Shag Harbour Incident, discuss the UFO phenomena in general, and listen to the recorded testimony of Laurie Wilkins, a key Shag Harbour Witness, which I recorded during our recent meeting at a Tim Horton's Coffee Shop.


The Shag Harbour UFO Incident - Part 1 - The Event

It's 1967, seventeen year old Laurie Wilkins and a car full of friends witness a series of lights travelling at a low altitude just above the tree line. As the lights travel along with the car, the object appears to descend sharply; crashing into the dark waters of Shag Harbour.

When Laurie phones the RCMP to report what he believes to be a downed aircraft, he was asked if he had been drinking, but when five similar reports come in from other area residents every RCMP officer in the area is dispatched.

As the RCMP officers arrive, joining the crowd of witnesses at the shoreline, one this was certain...there is something illuminated on the water and it appears to be sinking.

The event commonly referred to as Canada's Roswell, remains to this day as one of the most compelling UFO sightings in Canada...if not the world.

In the first episode of a two part series, We will be joined by Author/UFOlogist Chris Styles who will walk us through the events of the Shag Harbour Incident.

Concluding the episode is UFOlogist Chris Rutkowski (@ufologyresearch) who will discuss the presence of the UFO phenomenon in Canada and what exactly makes Shag Harbour so important.
