Movie Night Returns
Back by popular demand! Over the next 4 months, we will be watching and discussing Nassim Haramein's, "Crossing the Event Horizon." At 7PM on Wednesday, May 21 at a private residence we will view DVD 1: "The Search for the Fundamental Pattern Dimensions of Geometry, Chemistry, Scaling Law, Biology, Principle of Unification, Pyramids." Please RSVP by Email Judy Kitt for address and directions.
Nassim Haramein's lifelong journey into the geometry of space-time has lead to a coherent understanding of the structure of the universe. In the "Crossing the Event Horizon" DVDs, Nassim will take you on a journey through humanity's evolution, exposing the changes necessary to produce an all-encompassing Unified Physics; a unification of not only the four forces of nature, but also evolution and the occurrence of consciousness. Demonstrating the parallels between this theory and ancient codes found in documents and monuments, Nassim weaves a tale which may prove to be one of the most important discoveries of our time. The "Crossing the Event Horizon" set documents one of Nassim's workshop symposiums and includes several DVD bonus features.
Transformative Practice for Relief of Migraine Headaches
Using The Bodyscapes Technique
This is a joint collaboration between I-ASC/FMBR and the Red & Orange House Foundation. The purpose of this study is to examine the effectiveness of The Bodyscapes Technique to relieve pain and improve the emotional health and overall quality of life for people who experience migraine headaches. The study will examine the effectiveness of the technique's to help participants to heal themselves by developing a practice of mindful creative self-inquiry.
My Skull Worries, Dizzy by Program Participant, a 45 year old woman living with migraines. Her poem describes the subtler feelings she uncovered regarding the disappointment filling her spirit while living with migraine pain full in her head. 'My shull where my aptitude juts out, worries. The dizzy capable of being seen, interrupts. Pulsating contractions, putting out the person commanding, not strong, not robust, easily broken. Resolute will shaking in pulsating thought." A full description of this Bodyscrapes session can be read on the Red & Orange House website. redandorangehouse.com/2014/05/04/migraine-my-skull-worries-dizzy/
Six migraine sufferers will participate in the study. They will participate in two half-day Bodyscapes sessions. Participants will be lead into the state similar to that of the artist. An expressive writing exercise will occur followed by a drawing exercise. The expressive writing exercise and the drawing exercise will be linked, both requiring the participants to retain the altered state of the artist. The goal is to achieve self healing to ease pain and access self discovery to better cope while living with migraines. At the end of the session, participants will be taught and instructed to use the self guided Bodyscapes Re-Engagement Technique to relieve pain at the early stages of a migraine should they have one over the following month.
There will be a small fee of $30 for participants which will cover the basic cost of room and art material. The study will be performed over two consecutive half days. Our proposed date is will be in the fall, date to be set later.

Jean Millay, PhD, earned her doctorate in Human Sciences at Saybrook University. Intuitive since childhood, she was "visited" by her grandfather when he passed away in 1955. Peyote and later, LSD allowed her to see auras. She and Dr. Tim Scully created the Brainwave Biofeedback Light Sculpture which was exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1972 and formed the initial basis of her extensive research on brainwave synchronization and remote viewing.
Experiential workshop with Jean Millay PhD
Communication with the spirit world is a common experience and all of us have the ability. Jean will describe different methods of making contact and teach some of these techniques to help you to initiate contact on your own. She will guide a deep relaxation exercise to facilitate the quiet period for individual intuition to emerge.
Millay will go into trance to channel a variety of entities. Participants should have their questions ready, and are welcome to record any responses. Discussion of insights are encouraged.
You will receive a handout with a definition of terms to keep for reference and a recommended reading list.
