Crop Circles of 2009
Cameron is honored to welcome all who join us at our 2009 Earth Spirit Conference and will be your host for the day, her fifth year as MC. Opening the event with the first presentation she will give a review of the magnificent 2009 crop circle season and share with you her views on how the crop circle phenomenon relates to Conscious Living in a Sacred World, a topic close to her heart.
Cameron is a practicing Holistic Massage Therapist. Along with her husband Glenn, she leads tours of transformation to sacred sites and crop circles through Sacred Britain and she is co-founder and one of the organizers of this conference.
Jonathan Corcoran and Jennifer Vyhnak
Call of the Trees
Together Jonathan and Jennifer will share their mission as messengers from the Trees. Their understanding from the messages is that we humans have fallen into the deep sleep of separation. We've forgotten who we are and why we're here. The trees are like elders cautioning self-centered adolescents and gently reminding them about their responsibilities to their community and their relationship to the whole. The tree messages point to an evolutionary opportunity which is rooted in the principle of Oneness and the sacredness of all Life. The Earth IS the Garden of Eden - we are creators, we are healers working in collaboration with Nature. Nature has been patiently waiting for us to explore a new conversation, a new relationship with her and to work together in service to heal the planet. In the words of the trees: "We know that the very telling of this to you does help, that a truth once in human consciousness then percolates around and does its work."
Jonathan is a cultural entrepreneur, consultant and collaborator in a number of local ventures exploring sustainable ways to grow food, energy and community in partnership with Nature. He is president of Vermont Family Forests in Bristol which is engaged in pioneering sustainable community forestry and president of the Addison County Relocalization Network (ACORN) which is working to rebuild local food systems. Jonathan, with Jennifer Vyhnak and Bunny Daubner, have collaborated with Findhorn co-founder, Dorothy Maclean, to publish the book, Call of the Trees, Call of the Trees, an urgent call to humanity from the devas, the angelic intelligence, of the trees. Jonathan has presented at American Society of Dowsers events. www.callofthetrees.com
Jennifer Vyhnak seeks to be faithful to the leadings of Spirit and has dedicated her life to service for the benefit of all beings. She is a Quaker and student of Native American Sacred Studies and Tibetan Buddhist Teachings. Jennifer teaches workshops internationally on how we can use our psychic abilities with the nature intelligences to help heal the Earth. She is the founder and director of the Earth Healing Institute (www.earthhealinginstitute.com) in Bristol, Vermont, which sponsors the Earth Healing Gatherings, the Co-Creative Gardening Study Group, and other offerings with a focus on earth healing. Jennifer has been a presenter at the Findhorn Foundation in Scotland and has been a co-presenter at the annual conference for the American Society of Dowsers. With Jonathan Corcoran and Bunny Daubner, Jennifer is a co-publisher of the book, Call of the Trees.
Reconnecting with our Divinity - remembering who we truly are and why we are here
Bradfield has spent a lifetime pursuing his artistic vision, striving to capture what he refers to affectionately as "fleeting glimpses of beauty", those ephemeral moments many of us experience when we feel connected to the Divine Source. His creative potential seems to know no barriers, equally at ease in both the visual and sonic realms, drawing inspiration from everything that makes a heartfelt impression on his soul. Writing in a variety of musical genres from symphonic composition to modern day popular music and perhaps best known as the creator and producer of spiritual songstress Anael, Bradfield's melodic, lyrical compositions have been attributed by Shelley Yates (Fire the Grid) as holding embedded tones to aid in the ascension of humanity to the next paradigm. He approaches creation with a rare innocence, allowing full receptivity to what the universal energy has to share, devoting equal time to both "sound" and "verb" aspects. Bradfield is a classicist by virtue of the refined nature of his technique but the very core of his personality demands that his creations stem from a questioning of the apparent reality of the universe, worlds he then shapes to correspond with his own inner spiritual logic. Aspiring to raise the collective consciousness all while granting unfettered expression to his creative muse, driven from one challenge to another by an impulse greater than himself, Bradfield is a devoted advocate of the purity of intention, relying predominately on his intuition to steer him and his listeners ever so gently toward the Light.
Rev. Sig Lonegren
A Geomancer's Journey from Calendar II to the Land of Avalon
Sig's first experience in sacred space occurred in 1970, when he went to Calendar II, an underground chamber and lithic site in central Vermont to see the Summer Solstice Sunrise over a standing stone from an astronomical platform. This is a tale of the experiences of the early explorers of New England's 'megalithic' remains followed by his findings when he moved on to Glastonbury in Olde Englande to continue on his path as a spiritual seeker. Using digital projections to clarify what he has discovered, Sig will end with his recent discovery of the fact that unlike stone rings, where the astronomy is seen at the moment when the Sun is at the horizon, in many prehistoric chambers in the British Isles, the peak of the alignment is only reached after the Sun is well above the horizon, and what might be the benefit of this increased elevation.
Sig received a MA in the study of Sacred Space at Goddard College in 1978, and is an author, teacher, dowser, sacred geomancer, and an ordained Spiritualist Minister. He was taught to dowse by his mother over forty-five years ago, and is past Trustee of the American Society of Dowers, a founding member of the Labyrinth Society, Honorary Life Vice President of the British Society of Dowsers, and author of Spiritual Dowsing, The Pendulum Kit and Labyrinths: Ancient Myths and Modern Uses. He has directed geomancy schools on both sides of the Atlantic and is webmaster of Mid-Atlantic Geomancy. He lives in Glastonbury, England with his wife Karin. www.sunnybankglastonbury.co.uk.
Jane Buchan and Lynn Hartwood
Sacred Earth, Sacred Practice
As we move more deeply into the traumas of Earth changes through environmental, resource, and social upheavals, we are urgently summoned to participate in and advocate for Earth and All Beings. Jane and Lynn are asking, as many others are, "How do we best facilitate a new story of healing? How do we include everyone in a new dance of restoration?" The evolution of the Sacred Ground Dance vision aligns perfectly with the 2009 Earth Spirit Conference theme 'Conscious Living in a Sacred World'. On November 7th, Jane and Lynn will introduce Sacred Earth, Sacred Practice, a presentation to activate the heart's connection with the mind. On November 8th, they will facilitate a 3-hour experiential gathering to strengthen human interconnectedness within the Great Web of Life. Join us for Dancing on Sacred Ground: Sacred Earth, Sacred Practice, a gathering to inspire, inform, and liberate the Earth Partner in each of us.
A Brave New World
With the much anticipated 2012 rapidly approaching, what lies in store for us in the immediate future? Glenn attempts some metaphorical crystal ball gazing based on the latest findings from such diverse fields as ancient sacred sites and quantum physics , water research and the self development movement, and crop circles and environmental and climate research, pulling together strands from apparently unrelated subjects sheds new light on our future with profound implications.
Glenn's journeying through ancient sacred sites and the modern mystery of crop circles has been a pathway to both universal truths and his own personal spirituality. He has found that such places of the Earth spirit have opened up access to the unseen world that underlies reality. Glenn is a teacher, healer and tour guide and gives presentations on both sides of the Atlantic. He has set up and led a non-profit community arts center, Earth Mysteries groups and ethical businesses. With Cameron he leads people on journeys of transformation to sacred lands through Sacred Britain Tours: www.sacredbritain.com. He also co-organizes this conference, now in its eighth year.
