The Global Community and Key Members of Cosolargy

We recognize that people from different cultures, nations, and races bring something unique to a collection of individuals with like purpose. This can benefit and enrich any one of us in ways we might not expect. We have also seen that The System of Cosolargy works for people of diverse interests, beliefs, and residences throughout the world. These common views among Cosolargists culturally metabolize us into an international and universal group.

Michele Grief

“From a very young age I knew that I needed to find something and do something in and for this world. I searched for it my whole life, even minoring in philosophy, in an attempt to find it. After so much searching, I finally awakened from this world on January 26th, 2004. It was a wonderful journey learning and experiencing “everything”— only to find that there were no others that understood what I did. While on my last hope of finding anyone, I finally found ICC/Cosolargy in 2013. They understood, they knew the secrets that I did and that could not be spoken of in human terms. I had finally found my fellow journeyers. I have been with them for over five years [since 2013] and have learned how to fine-tune the methods of communicating with the other world. I am very grateful.” Michele currently resides in Chambers County, Texas.

Radheka Patel Savoy

Raised as a Hindu in an Indian family, Radheka has always felt drawn to the ancient teachings of light and mysticism. She was born in Auckland, New Zealand and came to the United States with her family in the early 1990’s. “As I finished college and became immersed in the world, my curiosity for spiritual growth developed. I was soon to discover my destiny which led me on the path to the Cosolargy teachings. As a student of Cosolargy, these teachings seemed familiar to me because of my Indian heritage, and I felt more connected to my origins. The religious traditions I grew up with made more sense to me with an understanding of Cosolargy. Furthermore, I began to study Ayurveda — the ancient Indian knowledge of life and longevity — and there are definite interrelated concepts between these teachings.” Radheka is married to Gene Savoy, Jr. Together they have one daughter, Helena, and a son, Gene Savoy III. Bianka Patel is Radheka’s eldest daughter.

Shawn Smith headshot

Shawn Smith

Shawn was raised in a devout Roman Catholic home in St. Louis, Missouri, where the reality of dimensions beyond the physical was impressed upon him by a series of “experiences” which his priests could not satisfactorily explain. The notion of God intrigued his young mind and set him on a trajectory to somehow find the answers to the questions that bewildered him.

After a family displacement to Africa, he explored the mainstream schools of thought within the multifarious branches of Christianity, and later pursued theological studies to the furthest extent and became an ordained member of the clergy. In the course of two decades of ministry, Shawn realized that the spiritual regeneration and transformation of enlightenment of which Christ Jesus and the Holy Apostles spoke could not be obtained by the mere mental assent to a particular exegesis of Scriptures. His academic experience in pre-Nicene Patristics also informed him that there was “something” ancient and mystical among the originals of the Church founded by Christ Jesus that was remarkably absent in the current expressions of Christian sects.

Prayerful and considerate searches providentially guided him to Cosolargy, whereupon, reading of The Community’s commitment to uphold the Spiritual Rights of the Races of Men, he submitted his request to become a Consociate. He presently lives in Cameroon and is making progress in his studies in The System through the Sacred College Program.

Ted Staver

Born and raised in Reedsburg, Wisconsin, Ted began studying the Teachings of Cosolargy in 1976. After several months, he began having experiences that compelled him to move to Reno. He is currently assigned to the Red Rock Consecrated Sanctuary where, among other duties, he maintains the property.

Hailing from Peoria, Illinois, Crystal currently resides there with her husband and works as a Respiratory Therapist. “I had previously started solar gazing before coming across Cosolargy. One day, as I was solar gazing, I witnessed a vision before me of a child’s face within the sun, and also the same child’s face circling the sun clockwise, and counterclockwise at the same time. The energy of this vision ultimately led me to seek out Cosolargy.” Crystal has been with Cosolargy since 2014.
