Sol Luckman
Artist, Author, and Alchemist

Sol Luckman is a prolific visual artist and critically acclaimed author of fiction and nonfiction. His numerous books include the international bestselling Conscious Healing: Book One on the Regenetics Method, described by Nexus as 'revolutionary healing science expanding the boundaries of being,' and Potentiate Your DNA: A Practical Guide to Healing & Transformation with the Regenetics Method.

Sol is also author of the Beginner's Luke Series of seriocomic novels that hilariously foreground the role of imagination in creating our individual and collective reality.

Characterized by Reader Views as a 'modern-day Alice in Wonderland' and by Apex Reviews as a 'mind-bending journey through the mind of the ultimate iconoclast,' Beginner's Luke is also, as literature professor Niama Williams has written, a 'spiritual journey that you do not want to put down.'

Luke's signature obsessions with self, sex, satire and slapdash highlight a serious, and life-changing, point: consciousness creates. The point is there is a point to living in the imagination—for only through it can we reinvent our ourselves and our world.

In Sol's expressionistic paintings, he is committed to exploring and depicting energy—specifically, that engrossing spiral of universal creative energy that is consciousness. His vision of the world is deeply shamanic, as a place not wholly solid, but informed by a kinetic vibrancy that is fundamentally intelligent.

His intention is for viewers to see this universe of energy in his paintings—as objects condition space with their essence, and vice versa, and the outside conflates with the inside because All Is One.


Thomas J Mitchell
Composer, Researcher, Author and Poet

Thomas J. Mitchell was born in 1932 in Lanarkshire, Scotland. He is a retired professional musician. Tommy played brass baritone in the Royal Air Force Iraq Command Military Band in the early 1950s. It was during this period that he became interested in pre-history while visiting many of the ancient sites in the Middle East.

Tommy also played piano and organ in his career and made a study of the ancient diatonic scale and its relationships to sacred geometry and esoteric teachings. He became a Freemason in the early 1960s and gained access to information that had a bearing on his lifetime interest in the history of music and its relationship to classical architecture. It was this interest that led him in the late 1970s to the mystery of the cubes in Rosslyn Chapel and the
possibility that music lay hidden in the arches.

Other interests include watercolour painting and poetry. Tommy has recently completed a booklet of his recent poems which will also be avaliable on download.

Co-Founder of Token Rock, Inc. and the TruJournal Social Network, Author, Designer, and Adventure Traveler

As a creative mind, Scott Leuthold has more than twenty years of experience in the realm of graphic design, branding development, product design, and Internet development.

Scott strives to set a new standard of quality design in the industry of information delivery related to spirituality, cutting-edge quantum research, and any area focused on pushing the envelope of self-empowerment. His goal is to achieve a wider public acceptance of the material, thus expanding consciousness of the human race and expediting the awakening process in a larger number of individuals. His efforts appear to be paying off. Just as Token Rock celebrated its first anniversary, the website was officially nominated for a prestigious Webby Award by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences. (

His motivation is his own curiosity and drive to find answers to life's questions and to continue a quest he embarked on in 1998 to achieve inner peace and happiness, which ultimately led him to Carrie-Anne, the Token Rock concept, and his vision for the Token Rock Journals (now called TruJournal). Aside from design, Scott directs the path of Token Rock, contributes articles and blogs on a wide range of subject matter, and leads groups on travel Adventures around the world.
