ice headshotIsis Aquarian was probably the very first of the Source Family Members to actually find "Father" - as Jim Baker - while he  still owned the Old World Restaurant.  This was long before "The Source" days . . . or Father Yod. 

Isis' name was Charlene Peters, and Jim was the husband of her friend, Dora.  He was a well-known man-about-town.  Charlene was born into an Air Force family in 1942, the eldest of 7 children.  She graduated from high school in Florida and moved  to Washington, DC, to work with Senator Gurney and then became a White house aid under President Johnson.   She moved to New York to work for Braniff Airlines and then on to LA - at the  height of the Hippie/Flower children movement - where she worked with, modeled for and later became engaged to Ron Raffaelli, a famous Rock Music photographer.

ice on Fathers lapAfter Jim Baker had created the Source Restaurant - and begun to recognize himself as "Father" - she reconnected and just walked out of all that was her life and joined him and the  nascent Source Communal Brotherhood on their Spiritual odyssey.  Isis, also affectionately known during Family days as "The Dragon Lady", was personally appointed by Father to be the Source Family’s archivist, historian and the “Keeper of the Temple”.  Besides being one of the leaders of the Family and a very active Member of the 13-woman Council (which Father appointed to handle Family business and issues), she was one of the most active photographers of Father and the Family and filmed, recorded audio (particularly each of Father’s morning “Classes”), maintained scrapbooks, helped take care of Family business and was one of Father’s 14 wives.

She has a daughter named Saturna, from the days of the Source Family, who is married, living in Hawaii and raising her first-born, Alana. 

Isis has remained Father/YaHoWha's wife, became the Aquarian Nun and now The Aquarian Crone.  Cronehood is the last stage of the Goddess Trinity ~ the Elder.   Isis remembers having visions and psychic experience from childhood.  She lives in Hawaii and travels as events dictate.


"The Great Work"
To preserve, protect, reproduce and share what we have of this legacy through books, teachings, music and film.

2000 - Isis set up our private Source Family web site – A place where the family can gather and share.

2000 – Isis and E began the work on the story about Father and The Source Family.  The work had actually begun in 1972 – when Father appointed Isis “The Keeper of the Temple and Archives”. 

2002 - The Source Foundation is founded to preserve and share Father’s legacy of teachings and music.  Electricity and Isis continue as the President and Vice President.  The Foundation is issuing and marketing the Family's  original music albums (Originally through Swordfish Records out of England and now Drag city Records out of Chicago) a CD of family Chants and the republishing of Father’s book, Liberation.

2005 - Isis and E worked with Evan Wells to produce the DVD Video - Re-Visiting Father and The Source Family.   Evan did a great job and many people have found us through it !   It is no longer available.

2006 - Isis and E actually completed the story of the Source Family to the best of their abilities and time constraints, and entitled it "The Legend of Father and the Source Family".  This Book was based on Isis' reality, as the keeper of the Family Archives, for we quickly learned that 100 people will have 100 completely different perspectives on any given story !   Isis also collected and edited all of the recipes from the original Source Restaurant – which was one of our nation’s (if not “the”) first Health Food Vegetarian Restaurants,  founded by Father in 1969.  Those recipes were published in the back of the book.  This book was sent off to the printer in Spring of 2006 to self-publish a limited edition of 250 signed and numbered copies,  3 days later – Jodi Wille – of Process Media – called to say that they would like to write a book about the Family !   She took this original book and re-edited and expanded the story and turned it into a sort of a “Pop icon”, a modern history book.  It has been read and loved by many as The Source – The Untold Story of Father Yod, YaHoWha 13 and the Source Family.

2007 – Isis and E participated in a three part series on Father Yod and the Source for NPR (National Public Radio)

2007 – Isis wrote, produced and recorded a CD entitled “Echoes of a Crone”.  Her next release will be "Bare Foot Crone". The wisdom teachings of the ages.

2007 - The pinnacle of these amazing feats is the definitive story  – The Source, the Untold Story of Father Yod, YaHoWha 13 and the Source Family.  Isis worked with Electricity for about 10 years to gather stories and information and try to reconstruct this signature story – which she has called “An Aquarian Exodus”.  This book was edited by Jodi Wille, and published by Process Media in 2007.  In 2008 it was awarded the Bronze Medal by The Independent Publishers Book Awards (IPPY).   It has been embraced by the younger generations and has revived our legacy and become quite a cult classic. 

2008 - Isis and Electricity co-wrote “No More Secrets, Wisdom Teachings, The Basics”.  This book creatively and thoroughly – though briefly – presents Father’s very eclectic Teachings in a simple but interesting presentation, with photos and illustrations. 

2009 - The Source Foundation released a Father Yod T Shirt through American Apparel.  It sold quite well in their stores, world wide. 

2010 - Isis produced the unique comic book - "Father Yod, YaHoWha 13 and the Source" - with Bluewater Production, a comic book company out of Washington. 

2010 - The Source Foundation proudly announced a new “Inventory, Shipping and Marketing Agreement” with Drag City Records !

2011 - Isis and E are soon to release Father’s Morning Meditation class tapes through an on-line library - working with Karl Anderson of Global Recording Artists.  You can now Time Travel back to the 70's and hear it direct from Father !

2011- Isis recently discovered more of the Family music - which was dubbed "The Lost Music" - in her archives and she and the Foundation are working with Drag City Records  to re-master and release it - for the first time.  The first two of these albums are - The Operetta and Magnificence in the Memory.

SUGGESTED READING

TO AID YOU ALONG YOUR PATH

Compiled by Isis and Galaxy
(These books can still be found)

Father shared many books with His Family, especially those which had inspired Jim Baker – in the early stages of his Spiritual quest – before the Family days. These books included many of those which taught the Eastern Wisdom and were given to him by His Father / Teacher – Yogi Bhajan. We recommend any reading that he or his 3HO organization distributes.

As The Family formed, many individuals brought in the books from their own Spiritual quest and wanted to share them.  In the early days we were hungry for any and all knowledge that we could find and did not limit it to any particular source.

Thus we all experienced all Spiritual Paths, Wisdom and knowledge . . . be they Ancient, Mystical or just way ahead of their time.

It may be hard for you to appreciate – it is sometimes difficult for us to remember – but there was no internet . . . we sought out information where and how we could !  Books . . . books were like solid gold to us !    Sometimes our unwavering searches led us to books that were very hard to find . . . or even out of print, etc.

Thus . . . we all experienced together all Religions, all Wisdom, all Knowledge - be they Ancient, Mystical or just way ahead of their time !    Most of it had to be taken on Faith, or in that “Certain knowing”. Together we researched and studied: Reincarnation, Spiritual Exercises, the Meaning of Symbols and Chants, Birth and Death, Life after Death, other Dimensions and Beings and ways of life, Parallel universes, Channeling and the Akashic Records. We studied many cultures including the Egyptians, the Romans, the Hebrews, Tibet, The Crusades, the Pope, the American Indians, the Essenes, the Sufis, various monks, Buddha, Islam and even Camelot . . . as well as the “Whys and wherefores” of the suppression of many of the Truths and Treasures of history. We delved into the Old, New Testament, many of the Revelations of the Bible, great Myths, Elementals, Astrology, Tarot, Magic, the Sacred Sciences of Numbers, Color and Sound ! We studied the power of the spoken and written Word . . . and even that of Thoughts, Actions and Intent !

We studied and meditated upon the programming and make-up of our bodies, itÙs cells, its functions – both physical and Spiritual, it's centers and chakras, the “Over-body”, the Aura, the connections to other dimensions, Stars and Planets. We reviewed the hidden meaning of the symbols of the United States and its seals – secreted in many ways by our founding Fathers, along with the mystical information about them and their intentions for this new dream . . . this United States of America. We not only talked about other Beings, but we saw their ships many times while living at the Father House in the Hollywood Hills.  This was not un-common for many people during this period of time.

And where did all of this lead us ?
To the Ancient and Sacred Name of God !

YHVH !     Yod Heh Vau Heh !
Ya Ho Wha !

We came to realize that our Thoughts, our Food, our choices of Words, the people around us and our daily Spiritual Practices had a very powerful effect on our well being and our ability to move from this somewhat tired timeframe of the Piscean Age . . . to a light, bright, New Age Energy ! This involved the shifting into the Adam Kadmon . . . the prototype of Jesus - the new Spiritual Man of the New Age !

This means that Mankind is now reaching a point at which – collectively – he is radiating enough of the pure vibration to show the Universe (and the encoded cells within our own bodies) that Enough of us are ready to start the shift” ! Enough of us are ready to cross over from this time frame into the next evolution of Mankind . . . to Spirit Man ! To God Man !

The common denominator for all living things is the Ancient Sacred Name of God, which has been encoded in every living cell of every living thing YHVH . . . the “Tetragrammaton” . . .

Thus making us all “ONE FAMILY” . . . in His Name !
