Piano Concert ~ Music for the Soul
Bradfield brings to the stage a lifetime of his exploration of the heart and our eternal quest to rekindle the connection with Spirit. He shares his art as the most refined extrusion of his soul -- not simply as a musical performance, but rather as a gift he brings to each member of his audience, wrapped in soulful melodies of silken sound. As he traverses the spectrum of human emotion and spiritual aspirations, Bradfield soothes, inspires and uplifts all in one breath, bathing us in a rich, authentic tapestry that reminds us who we are, of our own unique potential.
In concert, the artist is an open heart, radiating Love with gentle intensity and a powerful yet humble presence. Twenty years and twenty one albums into the perfection of his Art, he continues to create ´time capsules of catharsis´ that take on a new and wonderful intimate dimension when delivered in the context of his purely acoustic show.

Ancient Mysteries for Modern Times
Our distant ancestors understood and respected the workings of the natural world and their societies appear to have been based on working in harmony with Nature and the Cosmos. The ancient sacred sites all around the world attract us in ever increasing numbers because at a core level we know they hold some truths that are still relevant to us today. The crop circles likewise call people to visit, without them necessarily knowing why. Today we are realizing that our current ways of behaving on our planet are not sustainable. Can we learn anything of value from both our ancient ancestors and the crop circlemakers that will help us navigate a new course that is both healthier and more sustainable?
This question has driven Glenn´s research into sacred sites and the crop circles for the last twenty years. Sharing some of this information for the first time Glenn will take us through some of the lessons we can learn from the ´mysterious´ ancient past and the very ´tangible´ present phenomenon of crop circles. He will show, for example, how practical application of some of these lessons is having dramatic positive effects in agriculture.
Glenn has long been fascinated by sacred sites, knowing intuitively that they have something to teach us. Through personal experience and research he has explored the unseen aspects of these places of power and has discovered that they have important messages for us in the present times of change. He found his latent ability to dowse for energies was awakened in him when he entered his first crop circle (where he first met Steve Alexander). Running alongside this was a constant spiritual exploration which opened many doors and led to many questions. Practising Vipassana meditation, travelling, and training with the National Federation of Spiritual Healers in England and the International College of Crystal Healing, were all experiences which have informed his current perspective.
Glenn has been a tour guide for most of this time, in partnership with his American healer wife Cameron, leading groups exploring the mysteries of sacred sites and crop circles through www.journeyswithsoul.com
They also co-founded / co-organize these Earth Spirit Conferences www.earthspiritconferences.com
Who Does This Belong To???
Through a multi-media presentation Naomi will demonstrate how we are living in a symbiotic relationship with each other and the Earth herself. We now know that thoughts are real. Prayers have been scientifically measured and proven to facilitate healing. What we may not be aware of is that we, as human beings, pick up on random thoughts and bring them into our bio-system....affecting us in multiple ways. We react to them as if they are our own. We collect thoughts like lint collectors.....like a long haired dog running through a patch of weeds. What we may not be aware of, is that we can CHOOSE to accept, or not, the thoughts and imprints that surround us. Because we are 99% empathic, we take on other people's beliefs, thought forms, past and present and live them as our own. We even manifest physical dis-eases in this way! I see it time and time again in my healing practice. Using a leading edged quantum biofeedback device I will attempt to demonstrate that with the group. There is also an exchange between these thoughts, or vibrational frequencies and information the earth gives to us and receives from us. In this short presentation Naomi will offer tools to assist you in moving more easily into communion with each other and with the Earth herself.... ending the illusion of separation.

Crop Circles: Geometry & Symbolism
Geometry, number and proportion are the language with which the crop circles have chosen to open their conversation with us. To understand basic geometrical form is to begin to speak the language of the circles and to commence the work of unraveling their meaning. Karen has spent this past year doing just that whilst drawing the 2011 circles. She will share with us the depth of her knowledge and wisdom and how the circles have spoken to her.
Karen Alexander is a long time circles researcher who has for many years brought a thoughtful and introspective touch to researching the crop circles. A respected and influential speaker and writer, her work seamlessly fuses sacred art, spirituality, psychology and philosophy - the scholarly and the intuitive. Karen is perhaps best known as the writer behind the annually published Crop Circle Year Books (1999 - 2011) andCrop Circles: Signs, Wonders & Mysteries, Arcturus 2006.

Bridge to Sacred Mind
Bearcloud is an artist, a visionary and a Traditional Native American and has been practicing their ceremonies for 30 years. His path led him to the crop circle phenomenon in 1997 and he believes many of them to be highly evolved sacred symbols. He is able to understand a great deal of these symbols because they reflect his spirituality and are an inherent part of the native ways as well as being universal. He has come to call crop circles starglyphs, and sees them as being created by the Star Nation people.
Bearcloud´s journey led him to discover the secrets about the Egyptian Pyramids that have lain dormant for 5000 years. Symbols are revealed and connections made to the Pyramids, Star Nation and Native American ways. He will share with us his discoveries which he has written about in his book ´7 Fires´. His presentation will be a visual feast that will expand your vision and inspire you.
Megaliths & Earth Energies of Ancient South America
For several years Hugh has been travelling around North, Central and South America checking out megalithic sites and tracking the path of the famous Rainbow Serpent and Plumed Serpent global energy currents. His recent trip to Peru, Bolivia and Colombia will be under the spotlight in this presentation. Gargantuan megalithic temples that pre-date the Inca exist in these countries that defy explanation and have legends that consistently relate to Virococha, or the ´Feathered Serpent´, a god who was hugely influential in prehistoric times. He was said to be able talk any language, summon thunder and levitate big blocks of stone. He introduced sophisticated agriculture, metalwork, construction and taught the arts of vegetarianism, art and good communication. Exactly like the legends of Quetzelcoatl in Mexico, he arrived from the waters on a ´raft of serpents´ and eventually left for pastures anew. Who were these ´plumed serpent´ gods? Where did they come from? and were they masters of working with earth energies? Hugh will also give an overview of all the megalithic sites he visited, including the lesser-known San Augustin in Southern Colombia and the incredible underground complex of Chavin de Huanter in Central Peru. www.megalithomania.co.uk/hughnewman.html

Morning Yoga with Heidi Bock
Start your day in quiet contemplation opening your body, mind and spirit to the conference theme “Moving from a place of knowing and strength”. Masterfully weaving this theme in to the yoga postures, Heidi will guide you in to your heart and inspire you to place your trust in the answers you find there.
Teaching since 2005, Heidi is passionate about the therapeutic benefits of yoga healing mind, body and spirit. A certified Anusara®-Inspired instructor she has trained with numerous teachers including Anusara´s founder John Friend. Heidi believes that teaching yoga is a gift and an honor, an opportunity to evoke a heartfelt response in her students that leads to remembrance of that which is truthful, life affirming, and freedom enhancing – healing that goes beyond the mat.
James grew up in the 50´s on Cape Cod, attended the Art Institute of Boston in the 70´s and moved to Crestone, Colorado in the 90´s. He has had numerous one-man shows in his home town of Provincetown, MA. and is a founding member of the Crestone Artisan Gallery in Colorado.
For years he has been interested in the various images of the Goddess throughout the world. Most recently he has been captivated by the Virgin of Guadalupe and has painted over 30 images of her. He feels he is just beginning to touch the essence of the Guadalupe. James is a visionary painter with a unique style. Almost a visual presentation of the Latin ´Magic Realism´ , his work has been described as ´Classic Surrealism´.
His mission, his goal, is to be a part of bringing awareness of the Goddess back into a world that has swung too far from the balance of the Masculine and Feminine. A world so dominated by only one, is destined to fail. Is that not what is happening today? Perhaps a lofty goal for an artist.. but every little bit helps.
James is available for commissions .... including anything from rendering a dream image on canvas to cathedral ceilings.

He hosts the Richmond Sound Circle with Dorothy Stone.
The Oneness Experience
Oneness blessing givers will be offering blessings during the breaks at our conference. Here is what Marieken Uijen-Volz, the organizer of ´Oneness NorthEast´, says about it: “Oneness Experience is the transfer of powerful and healing energy via the hands or over a distance through intention. Oneness Experience is meant to begin a strong spiritual awakening by affecting the neuro-biology of our brain and increasing the flow of energy through the chakras, and also supports the healing of various aspects of our lives.”
