J. Jaye Gold (Justin Gold) is an American writer and founder of The Center for Cultural & Naturalist Studies, Inc. a nonprofit service organization. He teaches methods for the study of consciousness and lives in Northern California.

Background[edit]

Born in The Bronx, New York, Gold was raised in an extended, multiethnic and multireligious immigrant family.[1] He later lived in Little Rock, Arkansas[2] and Santa Barbara, California.[3][4]

The Center for Cultural & Naturalist Studies[edit]

Founded by Gold in 1983,[5] the Center for Cultural and Naturalist Studies, Inc. (C.C.N.S.), is a California 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization.

C.C.N.S. projects in North America range from a monthly local soup kitchen and singing at convalescent homes, to reconstruction and relief work after hurricanes in Mississippi, Florida, North Carolina, and Puerto Rico.[6] Overseas projects have included constructing a new wing at a clinic for Burmese refugees in Thailand, performing puppet shows, delivering medical supples, donating bulk food to families, and visiting with Syrian refugee children in Turkey,[7][8] and building a birthing-recovery wing at a clinic in rural Cambodia.

Teaching[edit]

Maintaining that it is possible to cease resting the weight of one's life on impermanent things — job, reputation, looks, money, a relationship[9] — Gold aims to help students remove obstacles to higher consciousness, including thinking too much about oneself.[10] It is possible, he suggests, to leave behind blame and other self-destructive tendencies, such as “competition, protection of self-image, restlessness, [and] fear of embarrassment.”[11] Gold, Suzanne Lang explains, is one of those people "who have figured some things out and work to share what the’ve learned."[12]

Works[edit]

In his first publication, Another Heart in His Hand, Gold converses with a professional poker player as they travel the tournament circuit[13] making observations about human nature that are "less than sound-bite sunny,"[14] The Whole Life Times suggested it be read by "anyone who is interested in furthering his/her mind and soul."[15] Gold more recently published a novel about financial espionage, an international travel-adventure story,[16] multiple essays, and an autobiographical "chronicle of a very adventurous life,"[17] with questions that challenge basic human assumptions and conclusions.[18]
