Bill Virga, M.A.
UFO's, Flying Saucers, & Aliens
A Critical Thinking Exploration
Are all UFO's easily explained away as man-made technology, and/or some type of natural phenomena? Or are some UFO's actually extraterrestrial crafts that are piloted by aliens who have been involved with mankind since the beginning of our human evolution ? If so, are there a number of different species, and are some involved in controlling or interfering with our evolutionary progress today? Are some of them actually communicating with top secret agencies within our government as well as other governments on our planet? Are all people who have claimed to be abducted by aliens suffering from mental illness, delusion, hallucinating, or seeking publicity for some bizarre sense of fame? Or are most of the people who claim to be abducted actually sane, honest, and often very intelligent people who are telling the truth and are either not taken seriously, ignored, or are collectively the target of ridicule by many in a pessimistic society that has rarely, if ever, looked into the subject matter in a critical thinking manner, yet forms an uneducated and uninformed opinion?
Bill Virga M.A., is a transpersonal psychotherapist and researcher whose passion in life is investigating spiritual, paranormal, and consciousness subject matter on a critical thinking basis in order to raise our collective consciousness and help create a better world. He believes that besides our own personal commitment to this work, an important part of the process is to become involved with as many reputable consciousness organizations as possible, so that we may learn from others — both presenters and members! Since 1994, besides FMBR, Bill has been a member — or co-director — of the Organization of Paranormal Understanding and Support (OPUS), Institute Of Noetic Science (IONS), International Association of Near Death Studies (IANDS), Academy For Future Science (AFFS), American Center for the Institute of Spiritually Transformative Experiences (ASCISTE), and the International Academy of Consciousness (IAC).

Nanci Trivellato, MSc
Children’s Psi Experience:
A Study of Non-ordinary Phenomena
Experienced During Childhood
When it comes to children’s non-ordinary perceptions, competing views may confuse parents. Diagnoses can range from having a mental disorder to theories of “advanced being.” Motivated by her own experiences during childhood, consciousness researcher Nanci Trivellato embarked on a serious investigation of this topic. Her in-depth interviews with subjects from thirteen countries revealed intriguing results. A number of phenomena, including night terrors, visions, auditory perceptions, sleep paralysis, invisible friends, out-of-body experiences, premonitions, and uncontrollable fear were examined. Nancy will present qualitative data illustrated by real cases, and discuss the measurements and data that she gathered. Her ultimate motivation with her study is to help parents distinguish the signs of a sensitive, intuitive child from those of other possible conditions or possible disorders, and provide them with techniques to guide their children.
Nanci Trivellato, MSc. has specialized in Research Methods in Psychology, is a charter member of The International Academy of Consciousness and "http://www.iacworld.org".Involved in consciousness science since 1990, she has lectured around the world: Australia, Brazil, Canada, Cyprus, Finland, Germany, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Switzerland, the the UK, and the USA. She established The Journal of Consciousness "http://www.iacworld.org/journal-consciousness/", of which she was editor for 15 years, and is author of the book Vibrational State and Energy Resonance.

Bernard Haisch, PhD
Is the Universe a Vast,
and How Does This Affect Proofs of God?
Two luminaries of 20th century astrophysics were Sir James Jeans and Sir Arthur Eddington. Both took seriously the view that there is more to reality than the physical universe, and more to consciousness than simply brain activity. In his Science and the Unseen World(1929), Eddington speculated about a spiritual world and that Consciousness is not wholly, nor even primarily a device for receiving sense impressions. Jeans also speculated on the existence of a universal mind and a non- mechanical reality, writing in his The Mysterious Universe (1932), The universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine.
Dr.Bernard Haisch will present the view that there exists a great consciousness whose mind acts as the hardware, and whose thoughts act as the software, creating a virtual universe in which we as beings of consciousness live.
Bernie will also discuss Proof of God his recent book with Ptolemy Tompkins.
Bernard Haisch, PhD is an astrophysicist and author of more than 130 scientific publications, and three books: The God Theory, The Purpose-Guided Universe, and Proof of God.
He was a scientific editor of the Astrophysical Journal for 10 years. His professional positions include deputy director of the Center for Extreme Ultraviolet Astrophysics at U.C. Berkeley, staff scientist at the Lockheed Martin Solar and Astrophysics Lab, and visiting scientist at the Max-Planck-Institut für Extraterrestrische Physik in Garching, Germany. He was also editor-in-chief of the Journal of Scientific Exploration.
Prior to his career in astrophysics, Haisch attended the St. Meinrad Seminary as a student for the Catholic priesthood. He lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with his wife Marsha Sims, his three children, Katherine, Taylor and Elizabeth, and his pet turtle Pogo.

Things that Go Bump in the Night
Do ghosts actually exist? Can spirits really cause supernatural events to happen in our homes. Joey answers those questions with a resounding Yes! Joey finds two primary causes of paranormal activity in homes: one is Earthbound Spirits and the other is what Joey calls Interference Energy, which is much more common in homes. Joey works with these energies in peoples homes almost every day.
Earthbound Spirits are human beings who have died and have trapped themselves in the astral plane and are still very much aware of the physical world.
Interference Energy opens doorways or portals to the astral plane and causes intense energy imbalances in people and homes.
In time, Earthbound spirits and negative beings or entities in the astral plane can learn to manipulate our physical environments, causing footsteps and other sounds, fleeting shadows, odors, lights turning on and off, voices, plumbing problems, objects falling off shelves, etc. With some people, they may not feel good, are unable to focus, cant sleep, feel depressed, etc.
Joey will help you learn to recognize the symptoms and give you insight into removing most Interference Energy from your home. Hell also explain how he locates and moves Earthbound Spirits on to their true Home in the Higher Realms.
Joey Korn is a modern-day mystic and a global leader in the world of dowsing, specializing in personal energy clearing and spiritual space clearing.He has found dowsing combined with the Blessing Process to be the most powerful spiritual tool that we each have at our disposal to heal, grow spiritually, and improve our lives.
Joey integrates the ancient teachings of Kabbalah, the ancient art of dowsing, and modern-day quantum physics as he condenses many years of personal exploration into an extraordinary system of practical understanding and energy work.

Frank Heile, PhD
Spirituality Explained Scientifically
Can a scientific model of the human brain explain many of the qualities and properties of both consciousness and spirituality? Frank Heile Ph.D. hopes to persuade you that he has devised such a model and that you will agree that the answer is “yes!”
The model begins with decomposing the human brain into three agents: The Thinker, Doer, and Experiencer. Frank describes the properties of the agents and evidence that supports this decomposition. He argues that the three-agent model explains the origin of spirituality. His explanation centers around the dominance of the Thinker in modern humans – the Thinker causes suffering and spirituality alleviates this suffering. This model describes how and why spiritual practices work and explains the resulting changes in human consciousness.
Next, Frank combines the three-agent model with Attention Schema Theory (AST). AST is a model of conscious awareness proposed by Princeton neuroscientist, Michael Graziano. The application of AST to each of the three individual agents result in three substantially different kinds of conscious awareness. Since a human being is composed of a blend of these three distinct agents, the resulting human consciousness is some combination of these three different kinds of conscious awareness. When the proportions of these three kinds of awareness vary, the human will experience multiple different types of consciousness. For example, this model can explain the differences between an animal’s consciousness, normal modern human consciousness, the consciousness experienced in a “flow” state, and the consciousness reported in states of spiritual enlightenment.
Here is Frank on YouTube
Frank Heile, PhD is the author of a forthcoming book with a tentative title of Spirituality Explained. Frank has undergraduate and graduate degrees in Physics from MIT and Stanford. He has had an interest in consciousness and spirituality for many years and has been working on this model of consciousness for over ten years. Frank has made concurrent session presentations of this model at several Science and Nonduality Conferences in San Jose, and at several of The Science of Consciousness Conferences in Tucson. He lives with his wife and daughter in Santa Clara, CA. Check out Frank’s website, "https://spiritualityexplained.com", for videos and more information about this model, and sign up for updates on the website to be notified of the publication of the book.

Life Purpose Analysis from Fingerprints
Doctors study fingerprints as a DNA map for disease detection, psychiatrists use fingerprint analysis to better understand autism and schizophrenia, the Navaho People say, "The Great Spirit breathes in the breath of life and the tracks of that breath become our fingerprints." DNA imprint or Great Spirit's breath tracks, anyway you look at it, our Blueprint for Life is at our fingertips.
In this Friday night lecture, Richard Unger will discuss the medical research into fingerprint formation and how this correlates with soul psychology and life purpose; what life purpose really is, and how knowing your unique life purpose brings a greater sense of meaning and fulfillment into your life.
Richard Unger is the Founder and Director of the International Institute of Hand Analysis and is one of the foremost authorities on hand analysis in the world today. His unique system of Life Purpose Analysis is the culmination of fifty years of intensive research including the reading of over 60,000 pairs of hands. Richard has merged his own experience with an exhaustive study of the medical literature on fingerprints to create a specific and accurate assessment tool that has been useful to business, therapists and individuals. He has presented his Life Purpose Analysis System in the U.S., Canada, and Europe in lectures, workshops, and on radio and television. In 1985 Richard founded the International Institute of Hand Analysis in Marin, CA and currently serves as its Director. Richard is the author of LifePrints: Deciphering Your Life Purpose from Your Fingerprints.

Consciousness From An Artist’s Perspective
Our Universe is highly interactive and is the ultimate expression of creativity, relying on chaos and order, patterns of relationship, and it seems to be waiting for us to catch on to our own creativity. So... what's it going to take??
Each person walking this earth has a special access to knowing, to being, and to creating. A big part of our healing journey is to walk that path, to experiment and connect with the phenomena of the universe, to see how we influence it, and vice versa. If there are different modalities, different types of people, with different gifts and perspectives, then we need to perhaps have a greater understanding of those differences. As an artist and a highly sensitive person, yet hailing from a family of pragmatists (!), Clare is learning to walk a path that moves, with ease, between these ways of knowing. She wishes to share with you part of her journey of being an artist in a world that favors rational intelligence, why she thinks even our understanding of 'being rational' is not quite accurate, and what we can do about it in our own lives. Part of this presentation will also include our better understanding of our own ways of knowing (our 'knowing bias'), and the ways we can shift our own state of being in order to access greater healing and wisdom. She will bring her music and art into the conversation, in a slide show, and also with some improvised live healing music. You will leave with an invitation to continue the great journey of self-awareness with some new ideas, some heartfelt reflections (Clare's and yours), and the feeling of music, hope, and healing, in your bones. There will be CDs available to purchase.
You can find some videos of her sound healing work here:

You can find one of her original Consciousness Mindmaps here:
Clare Hedin is a sound healer, educator of consciousness and an artist. She was born in England, UK, and migrated to California in her mid 20's to pursue her creativity and to discover her true purpose. A public speaker of many years, she co-designed the Sound Healing Program at the Sound Healing Institute, SF, spent five years taking original healing music into Oakland Children's Hospital and lectures at SFSU on Creativity & Innovation. She has 8 CDs -https://clarehedin.com and is completing her book on Dynamic Emergence - An Original Theory of Consciousness that explores the human experience of being a living system in a sentient universe, and how shifting our understanding of who we are will shift our appreciation for how to create holistic societies.

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.
Wagner Alegretti and Nanci Trivellato are Evolutionary Mentors with "https://www.conscioustech.com/"and consciousness educators with http://www.iacworld.org/ as well as authors and researchers, each with 3 decades of experience in this field.
Nanci Trivellato, MSc is a charter member of the International Academy of Consciousness and the Institute of Applied Consciousness Technologies.
