  • Tuesday February 22nd 2022 “Manifesting Spirits: An Ethnographic Study of Trance and Physical Mediumship” Talk by dr. Jack Hunter (Via Zoom)

    Some may argue that mediumship and spiritism are a thing of the past. Mostly experienced and reported to have taken place in the late 19th and early 20th century. With great names like Leslie Flint who specialised in the phenomenon of the direct voice. And who has ever seen real ectoplasm coming from the ear of some medium? Surely that is a thing of the Golden Era when peolpe like Blavatsky, Aleister Crowley and of course Dion Fortune were active. Or is it?

    This presentation will be an exploration of contemporary trance and physical mediumship at a private spiritualist home-circle called the Bristol Spirit Lodge, which formed the basis of dr. Jack Hunter’s doctoral research. Located in a garden on the outskirts of Bristol, the Lodge is a wooden shed specially constructed for the purposes of mediumship development and spirit communication. Through a combination of ethnographic observations in séances, including his own experiences of mediumship development, and interviews with spirits and their mediums, this research revealed a sub-urban world of trance states, ectoplasm, spirit lights and discarnate entities. Issues relating to altered states of consciousness, personhood, performance and the efficacy of ritual are examined in order to make sense of the processes by which spirits become manifest in social reality.

    Examples of direct mediumship
    Here are some examples of direct mediumship in the 20th century.
    First a direct voice recording of Mahatma Ghandi coming through the London based medium Leslie Flint, recorded by researcher George Woods:

     

    Here is an picture of Leslie Flint at work. A trumpetlike shape (larynx) of ectoplasm comes from his mouth. Out of the trumpet sounds the direct voice of, for example, Ghandi.

    Here is another example of ectoplasm coming from the body of a medium, in this case from the nose.

  • Saturday December 18th 2021 “Krampus”, Lecture by Geraldine Beskin (Via Zoom)

    Krampus is scary, Krampus is old, smelly and horrible. He does nasty things – and yet, he is oh, so trendy. Explore the long history of this very European monster who has become a darling in the Folk Horror world. 

    Especially interesting for Dutch people as Krampus is the handsman of “Sinterklaas”, whom was later transformed to Santa Claus or father Christmas in most of the Western world. Sinterklaas, nowadays is only celebrated in The Netherlands and Belgium. For most of the recent history this helper of Sinterklaas was known as “Zwarte Piet”, a man in colorful clothing with a black face from climbing up and down the chimneys. There appear to be many similarities between the way Christmas and Sinterklaas are celebrated and the history of Santa Claus and his handsman Krampus. Strangely, the roots of these celebrations lie in Austria, where Santa Claus and his handsman Krampus were first described.

    Geraldine Beskin of London’s The Atlantis Bookshop enjoyed researching this small piece of folk history that shows a centuries old unbroken line of celebration. Her Talk is fully illustrated and she looks forward to hearing of any encounters you may have had with Krampus.

    Geraldine comes from a family of magicians and is one of the worlds leading experts on magic. Together with her daughter Bali she owns the worlds best bookshop on magic, The Atlantis Bookshop in London, that was founded in 1922. Her family has been running this mecca of magic for over 60 years. It is an institution in the heart of London, just a stonethrow away from The British Museum in Museumstreet. 

    Geraldine has been fortunate to know many of the teachers and authors who updated the language and attitudes towards magic and took it from the Medieval and Victorian times through the Swinging Sixties and beyond. As a bookseller, Geraldine has been able to research many subjects in and around the field of magic. Geraldine has many great stories to tell.

  • Wednesday, December 1st 2021 “Stamps to Samsara”, Lecture by Randell (Via Zoom)

    Imagine being immune to all sorts of illusions and lies! With crop circles viewed as stamps placed to mother Earth, Randell will demonstrate how they connect with essential spiritual teachings and resonating energies. As such, they enable us to overcome the world of illusions known as Samsara.

    Randell is a visual artist and has been investigating the crop circle phenomenon for many years. Most years he travels to the UK in the summer to visit the crop circles. He takes aerial pictures and regularly publishes articles about crop circles on his website. He also wrote a book in Dutch that is called “Beeldtaal Gewasformaties” and is about the shape of crop circles.

    Crop circle shapes
    In this lecture Randell will speak about the versatility of crop circles but mainly focus on the shape of crop formations. As a visual artist that is what he knows best. The matter of how these shapes end up in the fields is not that important to him but everyone can draw their own conclusions from the pictures he presents.

    Messages
    More important is the decoding of the hidden messages in these intruiging shapes in the fields. The crop circles refer to many different subjects usually in a very refined way. Sublime artistic beauty goes hand in hand with deep scientific insights. Apparently the phenomenon is able to address the latest scientific discoveries and make very accurate statements about it that go even further. You may understand the importance of the crop circle phenomenon in these confusing times of political turmoil, extreme technological development, a corrupt financial system, environmental diasters and now of course the covid crisis. Randell wil explain that everyone can connect personally with the phenomenon.

    Randell
    Randell  was born and raised in Sas van Gent in the province of Zeeland in The Netherlands.  At the age of 19 he moved to Amsterdam to be part of the squatter movement. A group of activists against capitalism. His art addresses theme’s like social injustice, human evolution and the mind. Shapes are very familiar to him. As a child he made paranormal drawings. These drawings turned out to be clsely connected to some crop circles of a few years back. The soul connection that Randell has with the vision of crop circle artists came as no surprise. Throughout his career as an artist Randell  was always attracted tot he mystical land paranormal. Seemingly his career that took place outside of society was some kind of school to prepare him to be able to connect to some higher level of  spiritual growth.

    This is a lecture in the series “Nights of Crop Circling the Long Versions”. Randell gave a lecture in 2017 at our “Night of Crop Circling” in Alton Barnes, Wiltshire UK.

  • Saturday, October 9th 2021 “Crop Circles, Cold Fusion, and Coherent Matter Waves” Lecture by dr. Simeon Hein Ph.D. (Via Zoom)

    Crop circle researchers have observed that cameras, batteries, and other electronic equipment often mysteriously fail in and around crop formations, especially symmetrical patterns. At other times, balls of light are seen near the same crop circles. Now, new research into Cold Fusion and LENR (low energy nuclear reaction) energy processes, has shown that researchers in those subjects also experience similar phenomena going all the way back to Nikola Tesla. Such happenings are also seen around UFO encounters, ghosts, poltergeists, and Bigfoot sightings. The common link here is all these phenomena might have to do coherent matter waves. It appears that crop circles might belong to this class of exotic materials, where coherent shapes and frequencies combine to create unexpected energy phenomena. In this lecture, we’ll take a look at these subjects, the history of ball lightning, coherent matter, and how crop circles represent a major technological breakthrough perhaps originally introduced to humans by UFOs and their occupants.

    Dr. Simeon Hein Ph.D.
    Simeon Hein received his Ph. D. in sociology from Washington State University in 1993 and is the author of Opening Minds: A Journey of Extraordinary Encounters, Crop Circles, and Resonance (Mount Baldy Press, Inc., 2002). His dissertation focused on the role of technology in social and economic change, specifically how technology can destroy information and interfere with natural evolutionary processes. A former sociology teacher, he now runs the non-profit Institute for Resonance and the publishing company Mount Baldy Press, Inc. in Boulder, CO. He specializes in instructing people in the art of Resonant Viewing, Hyper Intuition, Human Fusion and also leads people on crop circle tours.

    He first learned remote viewing at the Farsight Institute in Atlanta in 1996 and has also studied with government-trained viewers. His blog,which is devoted to the study of subtle-energy sciences, is NewCrystalMind.com. Since the publication of Opening Minds, Dr. Hein has participated in more than 300 radio and TV interviews. His most recent works are Planetary Intelligence: 101 Easy Steps to Energy, Well-Being, and Natural Insight and Black Swan Ghosts: A sociologist encounters witnesses to unexplained aerial craft, their occupants, and other elements of the multiverse.

    This is a lecture in the series “Nights of Crop Circling the Long Versions”. Simeon Hein was one of the first speakers at our “Night of Crop Circling” in Alton Barnes, Wiltshire UK in 2015.

  • Saturday, September 25th 2021, “The Organizing Principle”, Lecture by Bert Janssen (Via Zoom)

    There are no coincidences
    Bert Janssen’s latest book “The Organizing Principle” was published on October 4th 2019.  Groundbreaking observations by Alfred Watkins, John Michell, David Furlong and many others formed the beginning of the discovery  of the illustrious  Organizing Principle that scapes our daily lives.

    His own recent experiences at places like Stonehenge, Silbury Hill, Avebury and Glastonbury but also earlier observations in Rome, Paris, Istanbul and Oxford, gave Bert Janssen the insight that everything that happens to us is being orchestrated by one Organizing Principle. 
    Because this mechanism is not limited by time and space and therefore not by cause and effect, we often expereince the Organzing Principle as curious coincidences, synchronicities and somtimes even little miracles.  

    Bert Janssen shows that the Organizing Principle  determines many aspects of our lives, but that we can also take the initiative and make the Organizing Principle work for us. The more we are aware of this fact, the better we learn to anticipate and participate. Time, space and locality are not very important. Our memory can actively move forwards in time (precognition, premonition, remote viewing) and we can influence things backwards or even change the past as quantum physics prove. 

    This lecture is just like the book informative, meaningful and mindblowing. It is aimed at an op open minded audience that knows that life is not merely determend by fate, but has a firm believe in human potential, espacially in personal life.

    You can sit back, relax and wait for it to happen or you can actively apply the language of the Organizing Principle, play with it and let the miracles in. The choice is yours… 

    Bert Janssen
    Bert Janssen is world explorer, adventurer, writer , documantaymaker and storyteller. Every summer he brings groups to the South of England on his Magical Mystery Tours. , Most people know Bert from the crop circles. He is responsible for the three most important documentaries on that topic, “What on earth is going on”, “The research” and “Contact”. For the latter he received the an EBE award. Besides that he wrote 3 books in which crop circles play a major part. And he wrote numerous articles about crop circles in magazines all over the world. A lot of that published on his website: www.cropcirclesandmore.
