  • Universe Spirit (focusing on Evolution 2.0, Religion 2.0 and sustainability, www.UniverseSpirit.org .)

  • Universe College (an online college focusing on sustainable livelihoods and lifestyles for a thriving future, www.UniverseCollege.org),

His victories in a series of five highly publicized lawsuits against the controversial Scientology sect established among other things, important legal precedents on the preeminence of freedom of thought and informed consent with regard to religious practice in claimed religious settings. The Wollersheim Scientology litigation and these legal precedents are now part of first-year Constitutional law studies at many U.S. law schools.

Wollersheim also won a $500,000 award in a California SLAPP lawsuit (Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation, against Scientology for its use of excessive litigation tactics to financially overwhelm, harass, and bankrupt its opposition.

Wollersheim has written extensively about his 10-year experience inside Scientology, as well as scores of articles aimed at helping former members leave Scientology and get their lives back. To date, he has been the only individual over Scientology’s 70-year history to successfully sue, win and collect a full judgement.

Wollersheim was also a founder of HealthKeeper, Inc., a software company specializing in assisting dieters, diabetics, and individuals with cardiovascular problems related to weight and nutrition.


Wollersheim attended Marquette University and the University of Wisconsin Madison. Over a period of 20 years, he was also personally mentored by and became a protégé of Dr. Margaret Singer, Professor Emeritus at UC Berkeley (who was the world's most recognized authority on mind control and cults.) Dr. Singer also helped launch FactNet.

He credits his interactions with and studies of the dialectical meta-systemic analysis processes and advances of Professor Otto Laske as instrumental in helping him to create the multiple problem and solution perspectives presented in the new book Climageddon.

Wollersheim is a polymath and autodidact who is also dyslexic, which he gratefully credits with helping him keep a sense of humor and humility in his personal life and his ongoing social advocacy work.

    Hi Alton,

    I am going to read your paper on Viking villages. If it aligns with the ecovillage work I and our team is doing at JobOneforHumanity.org and particularly at UniverseSpirit.org I will get back with you with an invitation to collaborate with us on creating these new communities. If you would like, email me at [email protected] and I will send you specific links that our design team is reviewing to create the principles, policies and the goals for these new communities/villages.
