"Lucid Dreaming's Extraordinary Potential for Personal and Spiritual Growth"

Robert Waggoner

Consciously aware in a dream, you can fly like Superman or perform magic like Harry Potter. But did you know that within a lucid dream, you can also meditate? Or actively work towards healing of psychological issues, and possibly physical ailments? Practiced for thousands of years in the wisdom traditions, lucid dreaming holds extraordinary potential for advancing your personal and spiritual growth, as you learn to access an inner knowing, see the structuring of 'reality' and use those insights to go beyond lucid dreaming to self-less awareness. Robert Waggoner, author of the acclaimed book, Lucid Dreaming: Gateway to the Inner Self invites you to learn more about the deeper nature of this exciting practice.

“The 11th century Buddhist yogi, Naropa, deemed dream yoga (which relies deeply on the practice of lucid dreaming) as one of the six paths to enlightenment. This suggests, even to non-Buddhists, that lucid dreaming has considerable depth and wonder for those with a sense of curiosity and adventure. In these books, you will find helpful assistance, techniques and openings to the deeper experience of lucid dreaming.”
(See the Science of Lucid Dreaming in Robert's website.)

E. M. (Gene) Nicolay
"Timeline Collapse & Universal Ascension"

EM (Gene) Nicolay will take us on a metaphysical journey discussed in his fourth book, Timeline Collapse & Universal Ascension: The Future of Third Dimensional Earth and Fifth Dimensional Terra. and open us to new, higher perspectives around why extreme events-- political, environmental, socio-economic and spiritual -- are taking place at a faster pace and with more intensity than ever before. Gene will introduce us to an understanding of the widening rift between people, politically and culturally, as a symptom of the evolutionary process known as ‘Universal Ascension’.

Giving us an insight into our multidimensional universe, he will open an unprecedented window into events he has remotely viewed on the future timeline of Earth’s 5th Dimensional counterpart, Terra. It is here that older Human Angelic Souls cycling off their current lifetimes on 3rd Dimensional Earth will ultimately incarnate.The differences between the dimensions are often misunderstood. They are levels of consciousness, not places or locations. Each dimension vibrates at a higher rate than the one below it, and with it comes a greater knowing, more freedom, and a more expansive understanding of reality. Evolution to the next dimensional level requires a shift in consciousness where the entity is vibrating in resonance with that dimension.

"911 Revisited, a Critical Thinking Re-examination"

Have you ever wondered about the official explanation for the terrorist's attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on the morning of September 11th, 2001? Did you know that the twin towers were 110 stories high, constructed with an iron core, cement siding and a steel infrastructure from top to bottom -- yet collapsed virtually at free fall speed in 9.5 and 10.5 seconds, and virtually into their own footprint almost to ground level?

The official, "911 Commission Report" claimed that this was due to fire damage from the planes that crashed into the towers and that no explosives were used to bring them down. Did you know that in the world's history of building similarly constructed sky scrappers which caught on fire too and burned for hours, including some which were also hit by planes, that none ever collapsed?

Did you also know that Building Seven -- which was 47 stories high -- collapsed too at 5:20 pm, in 6.6 seconds yet no plane hit it? It also went down virtually into its own footprint.

9/11 Towers

Did you also know that there is news footage from every major television network including NBC, CBS, ABC, FOX, CNN, etc., showing a 17-foot wide, round hole in the Pentagon for 20 minutes before the roof collapses and creates a 70-foot wide hole? Did you know that the official report claims that the 70 foot hole was created by another plane that hit it? Did you know that no video footage was ever released showing a plane hitting the Pentagon even though over half a dozen security cameras at the Pentagon recorded the original explosion? Only five still frames were released, none showing an airliner?

These and many more controversial anomalies will be examined as we watch filmed news footage at the time, including eyewitness testimony from fire fighters, police officers, news reporters and citizens who tell what they saw and heard. Both the official story and the challenge to the official story will be presented. There will be a question and answer period after the presentation.

Speaker's Bio

Russell Targ
"Third Eye Spies" Feature Film Documentary

Russell Targ, book author and filmmaker

After an experiment in psychic abilities at SRI reveals a top secret NSA site, the two physicists behind it all are co-opted by the CIA and the amazing work of their psychic spies is silenced by the demands of national security. When Americas greatest psychic spy dies mysteriously and is accused of treason, it spurs program co-founder Russell Targ to fight to get this work declassified, even if it means going directly to his former enemies in the Soviet Union, to the CIA and beyond to prove the reality of ESP.

This film presents the true story of physicist Russell Targ, his cold war psychic spies and his fight to make this information public, with evidence presented by a Nobel Laureate, an Apollo astronaut, and many formerly undercover military remote viewers and scientists that worked for the U.S. Intelligence community. They are now able to speak for the first time.

Check out the film trailers.

Speaker's Bio

"Third Eye Spies" is a new documentary feature film by award winning director Lance Mungia. The film consists of compellingly cinematic re-enactments of actual remote viewings done at SRI for intelligence agencies, new data retrieved from recently declassified documents via Freedom of Information Act and over 30 interviews with every top player involved and how those discoveries are being used today. Whether psi is used to find your house keys, make money on Wall Street, find a kidnapped general, or a downed bomber, Russell Targs understated mantra that the evidence for extra sensory perception is overwhelming and shows a talent we all share and deserve to know about. And perhaps most importantly gives us a greater understanding of who we are.

Producer Russell Targ co-founded the Stanford Research Institutes ESP research program that pioneered research into remote viewing, and worked for every major intelligence agency of the U.S. Government. Targ, a physicist, also pioneered the earliest development of the laser, and has since written several successful books on the subject of ESP and remote viewing applications.

Producer/Director Lance Mungia has directed two theatrical features for Lions Gate and Dimension Films; the cult indie hit Six String Samurai and The Crow: Wicked Prayer. He has won multiple awards and his films have played at Sundance, Slamdance, Toronto, Seattle and other major international film festivals.

LeRoy Malouf
Reinforcing Your Wellness, Vitality, and Resilience

The biggest paradox about being human is that we don't support what we say we want, and we don’t let go of what we say we don’t want. LeRoy Malouf will talk about how we unconsciously create weak energy which drains away our life purpose, and how the positive power of being neutral helps clear away our symptoms by identifying root causes.

LeRoy Malouf

Our energy goes weak throughout our lives when we judge ourselves and others, when we are irritated, frustrated, upset, reacting, depressed, tense, stressed or in pain. Any one of these times is small, but when you accumulate them over days, weeks, months, a lifetime, we get energy blocks which create symptoms, and then we say, "Ouch!"

When we completely love and accept our total self, our light and our dark, yin and yang, male and female, then we are being who we really are. We are in peace, harmony, joy, thankfulness, and light. The evening will include a group clearing session.

Channeling the Challenger Astronauts: 30 Year Afterlife Communication Project

Jeanne Love

This will be the first time in over 20 years Regina Ochoa and Jeanne Love will have spoken publicly about their time as channels for the 7 spirited astronauts who left the earth to discover the stars on the NASA space shuttle Challenger.  When the Challenger exploded 30 years ago it was thought that the astronauts died instantly, however, through the direct voice channel of Jeanne Love and Regina Ochoa in 1986, over a period of weeks, months and years, details from the crew themselves explained the deeper darker secrets of their demise. Jeanne and Regina share their stories of heroic proportions in dealing with the fall-out from the government concerning unknown details of the deaths of these brave individuals; how at times their personal lives unraveled as this channeled information was revealed.

Regina Ochoa

Speakers' Bios

Jeanne Love, medium, mystic and musician, is internationally known and regarded for her skills in all areas of spiritual wisdom and practice. Jeanne has been studied by FMBR scientists in regards to channeled material (challengercc.org) and subsequently was written about in Jon Klimo's book: Channeling. John Fuller, the author of The Ghost of Flight 401, stated that Jeanne was one of the greatest psychics of our time. With her Quaker roots, Jeanne continues to promote healing and awakening through her workshops and one-on-one counsel. She is currently putting together her work on the Dodecahedron Children into book form and will be working with this wisdom in the FMBR workshop.

By then Regina was already developed as an energist. Her skills, from both her DNA and ancestral coding begun early in her life and developed throughout her years. The skills she brings today include those of transformational energies: automatic writings, healing energies, readings for Spirit, and channeling.

Beyond Kabballah

Popular reactions to the word Kabbalah - a mystic, esoteric, secret, hidden, forbidden, furtive and possibly dangerous thing. In the past, it was said that it is certainly not for laypeople. Since the times of Abraham, Kabballah/Qabalah/Cabala/Qabbala/etc. has allured and bewildered many. There is an overabundance of lineages, teachings, theories, assumptions, associations, fantasies, and more around Kabballah.

Neduva

What is Kabballah now? It is science of the truths of the Universe, the science of fulfillment, the physics of how and why things work the way they are in our world as well as the biology of our body, the mechanics of relationships, the chemistry of our DNA, the astrophysics of our predispositions, the math of destiny and the computer science of perceptions. Irena Neduva will explore many of these aspects of Kabballah
