Ramtha is an alleged old dead guy channeled by J.Z. Knight, who lives on a compound in Yelm, near Tacoma, Washington, whence she also runs her channelling operation and sells books and trinkets.

"Ramtha" is allegedly a Lemurian who led a large army of warriors to conquer two-thirds of the Earth, by fighting the Atlanteans during a period of cataclysmic earth changes 35,000 years ago.[1] Predictably, "Ramtha" predicts more such "earth changes" coming very shortly and suggests we prepare. Otherwise, "Ramtha" teaches anyone who will listen that "you are God," and expresses much knowledge of conspiracies and world affairs, but doesn't seem to know what a carrot is. How this jives with his earlier efforts at world conquest, no one knows.

Shirley MacLaine, something of a woo-meister in her own right, promoted Knight and "Ramtha" in her book Dancing in the Light.

Ramtha's school of enlightment[edit]

Ramtha's School of EnlightenmentWikipedia (or RSE for short) is where people go to study Ramtha's teachings. According to the offical site, his teachings are "an unique science" and the school teaches various new age and paranormal pratcices, including remote viewing, telepathy, stuff about spirits and other wonderful assortment of woo.[2]

The school has been considered a cult by ex-members[3], including a support group for ex-members, called Life After RSE[citation needed] and by skeptics[4]
