“I have a Love Affair with the Beautiful Blue Planet Earth. My joy is to inspire people to communicate with each other, to love one another. My friends, all life wants to be heard. Life wants to hear your song; to see your dance.” –Dr. Peebles
The historic James Martin Peebles was born in Vermont in 1822, and died forty days short of his one hundredth birthday in Los Angeles, California. He was an ordained minister, a physician, author, a leading spiritualist and world traveler. He was active in anti-slavery, temperance, and women's suffrage movements; a member of the American Indian Peace Commission; a delegate to several international peace commissions; and was appointed by President Ulysses S. Grant to serve as Consul to Turkey in 1869.
On March 23rd, 1922 at a birthday celebration held in his honor, it was reported in both the Los Angeles and New York Times that Dr. Peebles had communicated with them from the other side. With wit, wisdom and compassion, he continues to share his message of Loving Allowance, Increased Communication and Self-Responsibility for one’s own Life as a Creative Adventure.
