Yelm’s award-winning photographer Rory Sagner submitted this photo for National Geographic’s Your Shot story assignment called “Everyday Science.” The submission was an editor “favorite” covered here previously. National Geographic (NatGeo) chose Sagner’s photo Blu Room today along with 15 other finalists from 5906 total submissions from around the world.

Sagner said this when learning of her photo’s selection:
“Needless to say I am absolutely thrilled that this photo was published! Of course it’s wonderful to have one’s work acknowledged, especially when that work is also one’s passion, but the greater meaning for me is in knowing that this will result in so many more people around the world learning about the Blu Room and being able to benefit from it’s amazing effects. I have already been contacted by several people asking about whether there are Blu Rooms in their part of the world!

My deepest gratitude goes out first and foremost to the creator (and now patent holder) of this genius technology, JZ Knight of Yelm, WA., and to my teacher Ramtha, for not only teaching me about ultraviolet blue light healing, but also for showing me how we truly can create our greatest dreams through applying conscious focus and never giving up! I’d also like to thank the amazing staff of the Absolute Health Clinic, home of the West Olympia Blu Room, for asking me to come and photograph both them and the Blu Room for their website. Lastly, I want to thank the National Geographic Your Shot Editors for always providing inspiration, my fellow photographers and friends in our National Geographic Your Shot group on Facebook for their incredible support and invaluable feedback.”


– Rory Sagner’s photo description by NatGeo’s Editor Prasenjeet Yadav:
“This image seems like it’s right out of some sci-fi movie. I love the composition, and the placement of those vertical pillars but more importantly the blue color tone in the frame gives a soothing feel to the image. I also learned something new about the advancements in the medical sector. Lovely image indeed.”

JZ Knight’s UFO talk featured in Nisqually Valley News

JZ Knight News, Press

“JZ Knight Talks UFOs, Aliens”
“RSE Leader Says UFOs Regularly Fly Over Her Home Just Outside Yelm City Limits”

“Making her second public appearance in two months, JZ Knight opened the gates to the Ramtha’s School of Enlightenment campus for a special event for Yelm’s first UFO Fest.

She was a guest interviewee at the Triad Theater’s Who’s Who in the Nisqually Watershed Mountain to Sea Series hosted by Steve Craig on July 5. The audience consisted mainly of current and past students of RSE, although a show of hands indicated a handful of audience members were new to the campus.

The speech on Saturday [July 29, 2017], hosted in the “Great Hall” on the campus of RSE, began with Knight’s reasoning behind the possible existence of UFOs, aliens and extraterrestrials,” by Andrew Kollar, Nisqually Valley News.

– Published in The Olympian, July 26, 2017:
“Weekend plans have you feeling spaced out? Beam over to Yelm’s first UFO Fest”
“The first Yelm UFO Fest is set to launch this weekend, and organizers are preparing to welcome visitors from beyond. Or at least beyond Yelm.”

“JZ Knight, president of Ramtha’s School of Enlightenment in Yelm and known for her claims that she channels a 35,000-year-old warrior spirit named Ramtha, also will speak as part of the festival. Knight’s speech will be held at Ramtha’s School of Enlightenment, and admission is $50.”

“The festival was organized through a partnership between The Triad Arts Theater, Nisqually Valley News, and Puget Sound Entertainment. Michael Wagar, publisher at Nisqually Valley News, and his friend Steve Craig hatched the idea during a casual conversation. Then offers to help began pouring in.”

“Jayne offered to host — a UFO fest was right up her alley and the Triad could use a fundraiser. Cory Kolilis at Puget Sound Entertainment offered his festival set-up expertise. The City of Yelm was supportive. It was perfect ‘synchronicity,’ as several organizers described it.”

“Jayne hopes that the UFO Fest will provide an opportunity for people of “all walks of life” to come together, dress up in their best alien garb, and celebrate being ‘a little out there.’

‘Yelm is coming out of the closet, baby,’ Jayne said,” by Zoe Sayler, The Olympian.

– From the Press Release:
The Triad Theater announces the start of the summer/fall monthly interview series titled Who’s Who in the Nisqually Watershed: Mountain to Sea. Kicking it off is JZ Knight, president of JZK, Inc., and Ramtha’s School of Enlightenment. The school was established in the 1980s and has hosted over 30,000 students from the United States and 70 foreign countries. JZ Knight is the unique channel of Ramtha and author of the best-selling autobiography, A State of Mind, My Story. Historians and religious experts who have studied her life’s work call JZ Knight the Great American Channel and recognize her as one of the most charismatic and compelling spiritual leaders of the modern age.

JZ Knight will be interviewed on stage at the Triad Arts Theater Wednesday, July 5, at 7:00 pm.
Cameron Jayne, theater director, said she is pleased and excited to bring people with notable and interesting backgrounds to the theater to be interviewed with time at the end of each session for public Q and A. It is a huge opportunity for the community to learn about individuals in the Nisqually watershed who are making a difference in a variety of ways.

Seattle P-I’s Blog ‘The Military Wire’ on The BluRoom® – invented by JZ Knight

JZ Knight News, Press


The Blu Room®


Story Highlights:
* The Blu Room is patent pending, which shields you from the outside world.
* Story’s author was a skeptic.
* What convinced him otherwise were transformational changes by vets.
* Over 40,000 users worldwide are describing similar impacts.
* Bottom line: the Blu Room beats being “over-medicated.”
* Inventor Knight offers two free Blu Room sessions per week in July for any active military or veterans.

– The Blu Room® is available at the following South Sound locations:
In Yelm at The U Wellness Center, Click here
In Olympia at the Absolute Health Clinic, Click here


– “When the Pills Don’t Help: Finding Your Way-Forward”
The Blu Room is a patent pending technology that shields you from the outside world and wraps you in an atmosphere of soft ultraviolet light. Since your brain isn’t busy responding to the stimulus of the everyday environment, your mind is free to relax or hold a relaxed state of focus without distractions.

Sounds like a tanning bed, right? I was an absolute skeptic. Walking into the Blu Room reminded me of walking into a Miami Vice club scene – mirrors, lights…and it’s blue. I took my place on the bed, which is similar to a chiropractic table, removed all my distractive devices (watch, phone, ring, etc), and proceeded to engage in the experience – aka, my short nap.”

What convinced me that this could very well be more than just an effective solution for those looking to achieve deep relaxation and significant increases in Vitamin D3 was my conversations with Dale and Dave.

After starting their Blue Room experiences, they both experienced transformational changes – not over night, of course, but over a rather short period of time. Relief from physical pain, relief from mental stress and anxiety, improved overall focus – all these and a few other areas of their lives – were improving.

Sure, some of this is anecdotal, and one could argue that if you believe something is working then in fact, it could very well be working…much like a placebo.

But over 40,000 users worldwide are describing similar impacts. Under the supervision of a physician, patients with the following conditions have found benefit from their Blu Room experiences: Cancer: breast, meningioma, lymphoma, prostate, bladder, colon, uterine, squamous cell. Pain: back, hips, knee, neck, shoulder, headache, ankle, foot, stomach, spinal stenosis, cervix.”

Bottom line: the Blu Room beats being “over-medicated” and may in fact be a solution, much like it is for Dale and Dave. Over 40,000 individuals have reported a wide range of personal benefits – and I do know that I benefited from my short 20-minute session.

My encouragement to all those skeptics is to check it out.

For the month of July, the inventor has offered two free Blu Room sessions per week for any active military or veterans with a diagnosis of PTSD and who would like to try the Blu Room experience. Please contact terris@bluroom.com or call 360.458.5224.

Those diagnosed with PTSD have also reported vast improvements,” by Michael Schindler, Seattle P-I Blog, ‘The Military Wire’.
