Matt McKay, PhD
Eight years ago in San Francisco, Jordan McKay was murdered riding home from work on his bicycle. He was 23. Jordan's father, Dr. Matthew McKay, was determined to make contact after his death. He sought reconnection through mediums, shamanistic rituals, meditation, past life and between lives regressions, as well as techniques such as "Induced After Death Communication" and channeled writing. Eventually, Dr. McKay found channeled writing to be the most effective and reliable way to converse with Jordan. He took these conversations and put them in a book, thus Seeking Jordan was born.
In the book, Jordan deeply examines topics such as:
• Why we reincarnate and the purpose of life.
• The role of psychological and physical pain in soul development.
• The relationship between individual souls and collective consciousness (the Divine/Source, All).
• The transition between life and afterlife.
• What souls do in the spirit world.
• How our lives change when we know where home is.
• The nature of Karma (and irrelevance of ideas like sin, punishment, good and evil).
Dr. McKay's presentation will begin with the story of how he established contact with Jordan after death and some of the important things Jordan has to say. He will lead participants through an experiential exercise doing actual channeled writing. To do the channeled writing exercise of conversing with a soul in spirit you'll need:
- An object that connects you to that soul (a gift or something belonging to the soul in life).
- A notepad on which to write questions and channeled answers.
There will also be a period for questions and answers.

An FMBR Book Review
by Jerry Gin
When FMBR helped host the Society for Scientific Explorations (SSE) a few years ago, I had the pleasure of meeting Robert Jahn and Brenda Dunne – two of the long-standing Board members for SSE. I had read about their ground breaking work and Claude Swanson described it to us at his FMBR talk on Life Force, the Scientific Basis. Doing close to the impossible, Robert and Brenda created a laboratory in Princeton, a prestigious university, to study anomalous events with scientific rigor. The PEAR Laboratory (Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research) was formed in 1978. In the next 30 years, Robert and Brenda proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that intention influences outcomes. They were the pioneers who established the studies with Random Number Generators (RNG) and statistically showed that random becomes non-random when intention is present.
Robert and Brenda wrote a “memoir” of how they met, how PEAR was formed, their many adventures in anomalous science, stories of their various developments such as discovering archaeoacoustics, and the many synchronicities they encountered in their journey. Their book is Molecular Memories is a short, easy-to-read book that chronicles their story.
FMBR Summer Gathering and Gab
Thank you to all who attended the annual FMBR summer get-together. In addition to wonderful food and perfect weather, we enjoyed spending time with old friends and getting to know newer members. Many people shared with us information about events they were planning to attend as presenters, attendees or volunteers. Those events included the Awareness Life Expo in Sacramento, a movie on vaccines playing in Campbell, a new environmental protection initiative that a member is deeply involved in and the upcoming Science and Non-Duality conference in October. Our membership is a great resource for interesting information about everything from alternative healing to social action. If you are attending an upcoming conference or event that you think would be of interest to other FMBR members, please forward the information to Ken Morley our webmaster at, FMBR Webmaster
