OBEs and Related Phenomena Matter More Than Ever

Nanci Trivellato & Wagner Alegretti
OBEs and Related Phenomena Matter More Than Ever
Out-of-body experiences, chi and related psi phenomena may seem like esoteric subjects detached from our day-to-day personal concerns and world affairs. In this discussion, we will reflect on how it is possible to study these phenomena in a very practical, personal and direct way, as well as through formal scientific research. Both approaches can help people have visceral experiences that tend to lead to a better understanding of the evolving, non-material nature of Being and the interconnection between all living beings. This paradigm shift arguably addresses the systemic root causes of many of the social, economic, geo-political, and environmental crises that Humanity faces today. When we expand our consciousness, we can renew the values, behaviors and attitudes that underlie our personal and collective struggles and unlock our well-being, empathy, creativity and potential. The OBE may be to consciousness science what the telescope was to astronomy: a way to radically challenge our understanding of our place in the universe. Even for those who are not open to consciousness beyond the brain and an afterlife, the OBE and related altered, psi or mindfulness states may help mitigate pain, anxiety, stress and related illnesses. It may also help everyday people tap into new, big ideas that can drive social justice, science and economic development in the 21st century.

Two FMBR Workshops on One Day
Conscious Influence - A Community Leadership
Morning workshop with Wagner Alegretti 10AM - 1PM
Each of us has the ability to influence others, with the ability to provide various levels of leadership in our communities. The type of leadership that is rooted in a deeper awareness and that ethically brings out the best in people can be called Conscious Leadership. Well-being is what most people desire: health and happiness. However, science shows humans are, generally, not so great at finding happiness. It also reveals that strong relationships and a sense of purpose are among the strongest correlates of happiness and longevity. We can help those around us by promoting well-being through authentic relationships and facilitating healthy habits, a sense of purpose, sufficient autonomy and opportunities for development or mastery. We think that the world sorely lacks more leaders - in communities, in businesses, in the civic arena. We can all be mentors, coaches, friends and relatives who promote well-being help others do more of what makes them awe-some.
With Conscious Leadership, we explore the consciousness-level origins of authentic, ethical, empathic influence and the practical application of energy and rapport to promote family, community and organizational well-being and development. I-ACT's Organizational Well-Being model is rooted in the vital, intuitive, mindful, creative realm of consciousness and built around four core areas of focus: leadership, creativity, relationships and intention. Wagner Alegretti will leverage decades of research and mastery of spontaneous and intentional transformative experience to enable a more conscious leadership, creativity, leadership and intention. Together, we can shape leaders of tomorrow and further qualify today's leaders to enable more individuals to reach their potential and enrich and better the world in their unique way.
Part 1: Workshop and Discussion on Conscious Leadership (1.5 hours)
Part 2: Learning and practicing energy exercises related to Conscious Leadership (1.5 hours)

Energy Mindfulness for Emotional Resilience
An afternoon workshop with Nanci Trivellato, MSc. 2:30PM - 5:30PM
People often refer to the “vibe” or “energy” of an environment, idea, or person. In spite of the prevalence of this notion, in practical terms, many times we do not know exactly how this "energy" or "information" affects us. A lack of awareness of this subtle dimension of life or an inability to deal with its impact can add to our already stressful lives. The tension of individuals compounds to affect the overall environment of homes, communities and work places, creating a vicious cycle of negative influence.
In this workshop, consciousness researcher and author Nanci Trivellato, MSc will share precious tips from her three decades of teaching and personal practice. You will learn new ways of recognizing detrimental external influences and reinforcing your "energy field." You will learn techniques to block some of these influences. The concepts and techniques shared will help you become more vitalized and aware, while feeling calmer and more balanced.
We will have a discussion of personal traits and relationship dynamics that we may encounter at and outside of work. Role play of situations will help demonstrate how they may relate to one's level of emotional, mental, and energy dimensions of resilience.
Once we grasp this notion, the energy or information forces present in each environment and relationship will become clearer. Participants will be able to improve their level of energy defense and vitality. Homes, communities and workplaces can become friendlier, healthier, and more attractive resulting in greater productivity, creativity, well-being, and development.

Our first Women’s Group meeting was held a couple of weeks ago and we had a full house. We’re excited to create a space for what’s emerging as we hold the intention to elevate the consciousness on this planet. Our next meeting will be held on Saturday, November 10th from 2 - 5 PM. We’ll have a discussion topic related to our interests in FMBR:
Have you had an anomalous experience, something you can’t explain? If so, what did it teach you about yourself, your world and/or your mission?
We’d love to hear your voice. If you’d like to be involved, please email women [at] fmbr.org.
Study Group Topic: BioGeometry
It is important to understand the principles of BioGeometry since it gives us insight into the nature of how the world works. More importantly, BioGeometry gives us tools to help us be healthy. Living means we are exposed to all sorts of toxins, ranging from EMF radiation (cell towers, phones, routers, computers) to foods which are unhealthy (GMO foods subjected to toxic herbicides/pesticides). Use of BioGeometry tools can change the way EMF affects us, neutralizing its effect. Foods or supplements which are not beneficial to us can be avoided. Negative effects of earth grid lines can be neutralized. BioGeometry tools even showed beneficial effects on hepatitis.
On November 3rd, the FMBR Study Group will cover the fundamentals of BioGeometry and discuss the tools and their use. The Study Group will be at my house, from 4:00 pm to 6:30 pm. If you plan to attend, please send me an email at jerry[at]fmbr.org and I will email you the location.
