Speakers 2013-14 Season
"The strange thing about the paranormal -- or the supernatural, the miraculous, and all other synonyms -- is that no matter how often you prove it, it remains unproven. There have been hundreds of studies on clairvoyance and viewing at a distance, arising from age-old experience. Invariably, as Dean Radin patiently explains in this book, the experiments indicate that the experience of reading someone else's thoughts, seeing a faraway event, or anticipating the future is real. Ever since science demolished faith as a way of knowing reality, facts are supposedly supreme, and when the same fact is repeatedly shown to be true, that is enough to change accepted reality. So why, in this case, have facts proved helpless?" (From the introduction by Deepak Chopra to the book "Supernormal").
The above can also be a teaser - an introduction - to the talk that Dean Radin, PhD will present to FMBR. As the subtitle of the book only hints there are many aspects that can be covered in this presentation. Join FMBR for a very interesting evening with Dr Radin.
Here is the link to the book website where there is more:

A TOE (Theory of Everything) Whose Time Has Come
Arthur M. Young's Theory of Process
Dr. Mike Buchele and Dr. Bob Whitehouse
"The Theory of Evolutionary Process, [is] perhaps the greatest breakthrough in the history of mankind toward understanding the purpose, the structure, and the dynamics of the Universe, including our particular role as human beings in this incomparable process." Frank Barr, MD
FMBR is proud to present a lecture by Dr. Mike Buchele and Dr. Bob Whitehouse, that explores the exciting Theory of Everything (TOE) developed by Arthur Young. After a brief overview of other TOEs, they will present the fundamentals of Young's Theory of (Evolutionary) Process (ToP), which elegantly describes the primacy of light (the quantum of action) in the unfolding of the energetic and then the material universe; how this occurs within 4 Levels of existence, and manifests via a Toroidal 7 Stage Process.
It recognizes Spirit/Purpose as being an essential part of the Material Universe studied by Science, present from Creation's Big Bang, through the evolution of life, and into our present self-reflexive human consciousness. It also points toward our possible future evolution, if we awaken to how our human consciousness is essential to transcending this critical Turning Point that we have now entered. It gives us a Reason to Hope, but a Responsibility to Act. It solves the mystery of free will versus determinism, showing that both are necessary as we develop conscious control of our selves, with the ability to develop a sustainable and thriving society which recognizes the dignity and divinity of every soul.
Bob Whitehouse, EdD is a psychologist, biofeedback specialist, emeritus professor of psychology, and former sport and performance psychology instructor, as well as presenter/consultant. He gives talks and workshops locally and around the world on heart and breath and on the toroidal universe and what it means to be here now. He is writing a book called "The TORUS Project: Evolution of Consciousness at the TURN, New Reason to Hope." His first encounter with Arthur Young's Theory of Process was in 1979 with Young's books The Reflexive Universe and The Geometry of Meaning.
Michael Buchele, MD is Board Certified in Internal Medicine and Emergency Medicine, was formerly Chief of the Medical Staff of the John Muir Hospital, Concord Campus, of John Muir Health, in 2003, and retired from active clinical practice in 2012.
Mike met Arthur M. Young in 1977, and attended talks that Arthur gave at the Institute for the Study of Consciousness in Berkeley, CA, until Arthur died in 1995. He is one of three Board of Directors of the current Institute for the Study of Consciousness (ISC), which works with the ANODOS Foundation, to keep the works of Arthur Young in print, and to teach and to encourage the further development and application of Young's Theory of Process (ToP).
The Science and Philosophy of BodyTalk
Imagine the possibility of listening to the body's stories . . . Why won't your foot heal? Why are you allergic to dairy? How can you heal from your anxiety attacks? Laura Stuve, will take you on a journey to the subconscious innate wisdom to empower physical and spiritual transformation with the BodyTalk System. BodyTalk represents a new treatment paradigm based on a quantum understanding of the mind-body as a dynamic, integrated system of energy and consciousness. Laura will share her clinical and research experience using epigenetic and deep molecular strategies to get to the root causes of "dis-ease", discover the "story" behind the symptoms, and reawaken the body's innate healing capability. Laura will demonstrate BodyTalk and teach everyone a simple technique for reducing stress and increasing mental clarity.
Laura Stuve integrates her training as a PhD molecular geneticist with clinical practice and instruction of BodyTalk, a revolutionary mind-body medicine. She spent 25 years conducting research in human genetics in academia and biotech before shifting her focus to the cutting edge of quantum healthcare. Laura's interests in dreamwork, shamanism and alternative medicine first led her to BodyTalk in 2005. She has just completed the first BodyTalk clinical research study with outstanding results for chronic pain.
Investigating the Paranormal: A Parapsychological Perspective
Human beings are drawn to a good ghost story. Human beings also are continually reporting situations in which they believe ghosts are playing a part. What are the methods for investigating and some of the possible explanations for these experiences that people have been having for thousands of years?
As a guide to ghost hunting, attendees will gain an understanding of the investigation and field research of ghosts, poltergeists, haunted places and related psychic experiences. The meeting will include discussion of conceptual models of what these things are (from the field of parapsychology), how the scientific and psychic approaches can mesh together, and how situations are assessed, investigated, and hopefully resolved to the satisfaction of the people having the experiences (and hopefully to the satisfaction of the ghosts, when they're involved).
LOYD AUERBACH, M.S. (Parapsychology), Director of the Office of Paranormal Investigations and President of the Forever Family Foundation, has been in the field for over 30 years focusing on education and field investigation. The author of 8 books, he is a professor at Atlantic University and JFK University, and teaches Parapsychology at HCH Institute in Lafayette, California. He is also on the Board of the Rhine Research Center and the advisory boards of the Windbridge Institute and the Forever Family Foundation.

He works as a professional mentalist/psychic entertainer, a public speaking coach, and a professional chocolatier.
Messages from the Afterlife
Expanding on territory covered in Soul Shift: Finding Where the Dead Go , Mark Ireland discusses his new book, Messages from the Afterlife, which is both an account of Ireland's journey from indifference to conviction and an overview of the resources available to the bereaved to help them recognize and receive messages from the afterlife. It features detailed accounts of tests and experiments that various people have conducted to obtain proof of life after death, including Ireland's own research and the secret message left behind by his sister, Robin, who died of pancreatic cancer. Provocative elements include an examination of psychic-medium phenomena through the lens of multiple religious traditions -- including some factions that seek to demonize spirit communication -- as well as a candid expos of debunker-style skepticism.
Mark Ireland is the author of Soul Shift: Finding Where the Dead Go, a moving account of his personal quest for answers about life after death -- subsequent to theloss of his youngest son. Mark is the son of renowned mid-twentieth century psychic Richard Ireland. Mark contributed an essay to medium Allison Dubois' We AreTheir Heaven: Why the Dead Never Leave Us. He is nearing completion of a second book on parapsychology and spirit communication, exploring these topics ingreater depth than in his present book. Other projects include the previously unpublished, Your Psychic Potential: A Guide to Psychic Development , authored by his father, now available for the first time.
Aliens and Man
Jerry Kroth, Ph.D.
Jerry Kroth, Ph.D. a professor from Santa Clara University will be speaking on the topic from his latest book, "Aliens And Man: A Synopsis Of Facts And Beliefs" (New York: Algora). This is a comprehensive survey of all the "best evidence" from archeology, mythology, UFOs, crop circles, and even looks at biological evidence.
When he discusses archaeological "ancient astronaut" evidence, he will examine scholarship and commentary on the Nazca lines, the Great Pyramid, the Voynich manuscript, and Pumapunku and other strange anomalous items. The examination of ancient mythology and stories of Gods coming and going are legion, and approaching this material both in a Jungian context as well as an "alien" context is quite unusual.
The review of UFO evidence tries to cover "best evidence" and that includes Roswell, Iceland, Bentwaters and other notable cases.
Dr. Kroth will also review the subject of crop circles, particularly the peer-reviewed studies which have successfully deciphered almost twenty circles. This is a multi-media presentation with numerous film clips. Discussion and comments will follow.
Jerry Kroth, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor Emeritus from Santa Clara University in California. His teaching assignments include psychotherapy and personality theory, dreamwork, and research methods. He has an abiding therapeutic interest in working with dreams, personal oracles, and the applications of dream theory to psychohistory.
Dr. Kroth's twelve prior books were in the areas of counseling psychology, child sexual abuse, learning disorders, metapsychology, and research methodology. In addition, he has written and presented over seventy papers on anxiety, child development, mass psychology, synchronicity, the dream process, psychohistory and collective psychology.
His more recent works are "Conspiracy In Camelot: The Complete History Of The Assassination" of John Fitzgerald Kennedy (New York: Algora, 2003) and "American Crazy: A Voyage To The Dark Side Of The American Dream" (Genotype), "Aliens And Man: A Synopsis Of Facts And Beliefs" (Algora), "Psyche's Exile: An Empirical Odyssey In Search Of The Soul" (Libre digital), and "The Lindbergh Kidnapping: Mobs, Mass Psychology, And Myth" (Pubit).
These texts are available from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, as well as his website collectivepsych.com.
Ivor Francis and Diane Cantwell
On January 30, 2012, Hypnotherapist Diane Cantwell put Ivor Francis into a deep state of relaxation to alleviate his debilitating symptoms from Advanced Lyme's Disease. All of a sudden, from the depths of his somnambulant state, an emphatic voice came forth, "Wake up, wake up, wake up! Everything must go!" In that moment, everything changed, as Diane discovered Ivor's gifts as a clairvoyant and a spiritual channel. The duo have been on a wild ride ever since tapping the Spiritual Realms for hidden truths and powerful techniques for the raising of consciousness on the planet.
After their fateful meeting, the pair teamed up for weekly channeling sessions, receiving information on mystical healing from spiritual luminaries, such as the great Western mystic, Manly Palmer Hall, and Past President of the Theosophical Society, Annie Besant, as well as several other Beings of Light.
Building upon instructions received in their channeling sessions and the information in Besant's book, Thought Forms, published in 1901, Ivor and Diane began to develop a brand new healing modality called, Thought Form Healing™.
Their approach to dematerializing thought forms in the Human Energy Field has been called "speed therapy" because of its pinpoint accuracy in identifying and remediating the mental and emotional baggage that has become disassociated from the conscious mind. Thought Form Healing™ frees the consciousness of lack and limitation created in this lifetime or carried forward from previous incarnations, allowing an individual to experience improvements in health, finances, relationships, and creative expression -- all in alignment with their Soul's Purpose.
Join Ivor and Diane as they tell their amazing story of being guided from the other side and how it led to their own personal transformation and the creation of Thought Form Healing™.
Ivor Francis, MA
Ivor Francis spent most of his life in the music business as a performer, composer, record producer, and music educator. However, at age 52, a devastating bout with advanced Lyme's Disease changed everything, as Ivor's healing journey led him to an amazing encounter with the other side and a discovery of his spiritual gifts as a mystic and a healer. In 2012, his unique ability to remote view the complexities of the Human Energy Field while under hypnosis paved the way for a groundbreaking approach to personal transformation called Thought Form Healing™. Along with Hypnotherapist, Diane Cantwell, Ivor developed a powerful way to clairvoyantly identify and remediate a person's Thought Forms -- crystallized energy structures held by the consciousness in the Auric Field. Since then, Ivor and Diane have been privileged to help hundreds of clients get free from their toxic mental and emotional baggage, thus leading to a healthier and more fulfilling life.
Ivor's dedication to music is second only to his knowledge of metaphysics and the practice of Kriya Yoga Meditation, as taught by Paramahansa Yogananda. Ivor has devoted over 38 years of study to Astrology, Tarot, Numerology, comparative religions, as well as many other metaphysical subjects; indeed, his awakening as a healer was an overnight success many years in the making. In addition to working full-time facilitating one-on-one Thought Form Healing sessions and teaching workshops and seminars, Ivor is currently completing his doctorate in Music Composition at the University of Southern California.

Get a Quantum Jump into the Quantum Age
Cynthia Sue Larson
Cynthia Sue Larson presents a radical new paradigm: that we exist in an interconnected holographic multiverse in which we literally jump from one parallel universe to another. At the dawn of this new Quantum Revolution, a majority of physicists surveyed assert that you and I and every physical thing exists in a superposition of states, meaning there are many possible you's! The premise of quantum jumps is that it's possible for you to make jump to a reality you will enjoy. Recent studies in psychology, biology, and physics show positive results for those who "fake it 'til they make it." In a moment you can become smarter... more confident... happier... more outgoing... more effective... in better relationships... with more willpower.
Cynthia Sue Larson is a best-selling author, speaker, and life coach who helps talented people struggling with unsatisfying lives find love, meaning, and prosperity. Known as "The Quantum Optimist," Cynthia's books guide people to jump into their favorite lives. Cynthia has a degree in Physics from UC Berkeley, an MBA degree, and a Doctor of Divinity. She has been featured in numerous shows including the History Channel, Coast to Coast AM, and BBC. Cynthia encourages people to imagine positive outcomes by asking her favorite question, "How good can it get?" in every situation.
