After graduating with a business and economics degree from California Western University in California, Lee Carroll started a technical audio business in San Diego that flourished for 30 years. As an engineer, where do channelling and Indigo children fit into all this? As Lee tells it, God had to hit him “between the eyes” to prove his spiritual experience was real. The year 1989 was the turning point when the first psychic told him about his spiritual path, and then three years later when the second unrelated psychic told him the same thing! Timidly, the first writings were presented to the metaphysical community in Del Mar, California, and the rest is history—a total of nine metaphysical books were released in a seven-year span. There are now over a half a million books in print in 14 languages: Spanish, French, German, Chinese, Hebrew, English, Danish, Italian, Greek, Hungarian, Japanese, and Turkish. Also represented are the languages of the Netherlands and Finland. Lee and his spiritual partner, Jan Tober, started the “Kryon light groups” in Del Mar in 1991 and quickly moved from a living-room setting to a Del Mar church. Now they’re hosting meetings all over the globe, with audiences of up to 3,000 people in Europe alone. In the beginning days of the Internet, Kryon had the largest consistent New Age folder in the history of America Online, and now attracts many more electronic browsers on his Website, which you can visit at [www.kryon.com]. Also on the Website is an on-line magazine where new Kryon and Indigo-related articles are featured regularly. Perhaps the most moving meeting with Jan and Lee occurred in Tel Aviv, Israel, in October 2000. Amid the strife and violent uprisings at that time in the Middle East, messages were given to a single group of more than 1,000 Israelites that were uplifting and positive. (This message is available on the Kryon Website, listed above.) In 1995, Lee and Jan were asked to present the Kryon work at the United Nations (U.N.) in New York City before a U.N.-chartered group known as the Society for Enlightenment and Transformation (S.E.A.T.). The meeting was so well accepted that they were invited back two more times, in 1996 and in 1998, to present their message of love! Lee is the author of nine Kryon books, and is the co-author (along with Jan) of The Indigo Children: The New Kids Have Arrived. The Indigo Child Website is: [www.indigochild.com]. Lee continues to write from his home in San Diego, living with his wife, Patricia, and his Maltese dog, Mini.
The phone crackled one early morning in Jan Tober's life: "This is Benny Goodman," the voice said. "You come very highly recommended and I want to hire you, but I've never heard you sing. Can you hum something for me?"
Such is the stuff that fairy tales are made of - at least for a girl jazz singer! But this call was simply one of many that had already marked an amazing career for Jan, which included touring with the Four Freshmen and of course, noted bandleader Benny Goodman, and doing shows with Rowan & Martin and even Bob Hope. Aside from being a talented vocalist, Jan is also an extraordinary design artist, with paintings, clothing and jewelry for sale in galleries and boutiques in several states.
Jan has been an active Metaphysician all of her life and using this, plus her profound experience in music, she now concentrates her efforts in the goal of changing lives through sound and color. Her "Sound/Color" workshops are a featured part of the Kryon seminars worldwide, as well as her guided meditations. Besides traveling the world with the Kryon work, Jan was also presented three time at the United Nations in New York City. Together, Jan and Lee Carroll have written the bestselling books The Indigo Children, and An Indigo Celebration.
