Health Hazards of Wireless Technologies - The Inconvenient Reality

Peter will share some of his considerable knowledge of electro-sensitivity and associated conditions such as ME, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, tinnitus, multi-chemical sensitivities, pregnancy complications, ADHD, autism and cancer, also ecological damage. He also aims to inform the wider community, especially those with a duty of care, and to promote precaution when using current wireless technologies, whilst encouraging the development of safer systems and devices. An evening not to be missed to find out more about the dangers we are all facing, for those who care for mankind, future generations and our ecology
|Weymouth||Speaker: Patricia Davis|
Tricia has been teaching psychic-spiritual development classes since 1979. Having worked as a medium, channelling knowledge from the higher dimensions, her talk this evening will be about 'Communications' - linking the visible with the visible realms.
In serving life, love and light, we can all learn to communicate with these 'Field to Field' connections that need resonance with particular frequencies. This can be likened to tuning-in to Divinities, Times, Places, People - incarnate or discarnate, or any field of 'like frequency' within the Cosmos. Come along and be inspired to further your own understanding and development on the spiritual path
Transition Town Weymouth and Portland
Open to anyone interested in developing resilience to the chaotic changes and challenges happening locally and globally. Sophy will help us to understand how forming a group that looks at these issues and by using interaction, psychological, spiritual and open discussion, we can tap into a personal and a collective strength. In the busy modern world a group such as this (which in the Transition movement is sometimes called a Heart and Soul group), can give a gentle space to be still and be in the moment.
Inner Transition groups create places where people come together to deepen their connections, to find support and share feelings such as fear and vulnerability, to strengthen qualities of trust, compassion, acceptance, and to explore profound questions about the kind of world we are transitioning towards. Transition is unusual among many movements for social or environmental change in weaving the inner and outer pieces together as part of one whole. And yet there are challenges involved in including this territory what exactly is Inner Transition? Venue: St. Anne's Schoolroom, Radipole Lane , Radipole, Weymouth Time: Time 7pm
This session is free but donations towards costs will be gratefully accepted. As space is limited it is essential you book a place by contacting Margaret Tidball . e mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01305 786300

Reflections on the Sacred Landscape of Dorset
|Weymouth||Speaker: Gary Biltcliffe|
|The county of Dorset is a rich in folklore and has a landscape full of prehistoric remains and great hill fortifications such as Maiden Castle. Using folklore, archaeology, history and common sense, Gary Biltcliffe will delve into the purpose of these mysterious places and point to a link with distant cultures such as the Phoenicians. The old folk used to call Dorset ‘Little Egypt'; perhaps there is a good reason. Gary has dedicated the past 30 years to historical research and investigation of earth mysteries, ancient civilisations and lost knowledge. He has appeared on television and radio and lectured for dowsing and earth mystery groups both in the UK and in America. He is the author of two books: The Spirit of Portland - Revelations of a Sacred Isle and The Spine of Albion - An Exploration of Earth Energies and Landscape Mysteries along the Belinus Line|

The Bosnian Pyramids
|Weymouth||DVD showing of Sam Semir Osmanagic's UK presentation|
The discovery of the first European pyramids, found in the heart of Bosnia, has changed history as we know it!
The Pyramid of the Sun has four perfectly shaped slopes pointing toward the cardinal points and an entrance plateau leading to a complex system of underground tunnels. Four more ancient structures on the site are known as the Pyramid of the Moon, Pyramid of the Dragon, Pyramid of the Love and the Temple of the Earth.
In all over 100 temples have been identified in Bosnia, probably c onstructed by the Illyrians, the Western Balkan offspring of the most ancient people of Europe, the Pelasgians known in antiquity for building walls and objects with massive or cyclopian blocks of stone.
An opportunity to find out more about this remarkable project now visited by many volunteers from the Bosnian American archaeologist who spent 15 years studying the pyramids of Latin America and has found remarkable similarities in the pyramids of Bosnia. Having battled mainstream scientists, politicians and the problems of institutional funding, Sam's extensive knowledge and sense of humour shines through

Discover new ways of 'living our truth' and explore the different elements that make us uniquely human as we journey towards lasting peace and beyond. The evening will end with a short meditation, feel free to bring a cushion
The Shamanic Way
|Upwey||Speaker: Charlotte Gush|
Shamanism is one of the oldest spiritual practices in the world. In time-honoured tradition, the ancients would sit around the fire, share stories and honour the beauty in all nature, celebrating what had been learned or gifted. Sacred ceremonies include Despatcho, mythic mapping, shamanic journeying, sand painting, celebrating the seasons and the ancestors. Charlotte will explain that the Shamanic Path is simple, nourishing and available to all, its tools and practices are relevant to our lives today and hold many answers to modern day questions. Ceremony is a conscious celebration of something you feel in your heart!
Showing of 'Olympic' Presentation
|Upwey||Speaker: Ian Crane|
This evening will be a DVD showing of his illustrated presentation given the day after the Olympic opening ceremony. It covers many of the subversive messages conveyed by our media, with Ian's own brand of humour and interpretation. With 'Olympic fever' now coming to an end, it is well to remember that we are constantly bombarded by subliminal information and news - much of which is not necessarily negative. All we have to do is be awake and listen! Underlying many hidden agendas is a call to awaken to the potential for empowering humanity.
Time permitting we will also show part of a fascinating talk by DOLORES CANNON about what is happening as the Earth goes through its next incarnation. Dolores is a prolific author, speaker and healer who, as a past-life regression therapist, has documented thousands of cases of past and future lives. She explains that humanity developed as a result of planet Earth being seeded as an experimental laboratory in our cosmos, and discusses topics such as karma, extra-terrestrials, children being born with ‘advanced' DNA, and the importance of letting go of past patterns to deal with new incoming energies

Healing from War, Working for Peace. Israel, Palestine & Germany
|Upwey||Speaker: Barbara Cohen|
Barbara will update us on her trips last year: to the Holy Land, Poland and Germany , working at a grass roots humanitarian level to support peace initiatives. In Israel & Palestine she returned to the Peace Village of Neve Shalom/Wahat Al Salam, where Jews and Palestinian Arabs all citizens of Israel live together in complete equality. This trip included meeting a wonderful Palestinian Quaker, and staying in the Old City of Jerusalem, before travelling north towards Haifa and Zfat, near Galilee.
At a time of enormous civil unrest in Israel , with mass demonstrations directed against war and towards peace and non-violence, it is a very hopeful time for social change! Her visit to Poland included a workshop, "Healing the Hurts of World War II". In Germany she stayed near Bremen , where a Jewish museum has been opened in remembrance of the Cohen family, who lived there for several hundred years but were killed in the war. Barbara will share her inspiring and moving experiences of the people and the healing of the hurts of nations
