Title: Human Devolution: A Vedic Alternative to Darwin’s Theory
Speaker: Michael Cremo
Michael presents evidence for extreme human antiquity which contradicts current Darwinian theory. Evidence is also presented that suggests that Darwinian theory is protected by a process of knowledge filtration thus denying us the truth about the origins of humanity. Author of Forbidden Archaeology, Michael is an internationally renowned researcher in human antiquity based at the International Society for Krishna Consciousness.
Title: Dreaming to Some Purpose
Speaker: Serena Roney Dougal
Why do we dream? What is the role of dreams in spiritual growth? Is dreaming a method by which we can communicate with the gods? Serena Roney Dougal considers the physiological process of dreaming in terms of what is actually happening and then discusses the ways in which we can work with, understand and interpret the meaning of dreams
Title: The Marriage of Heaven and Earth
Speaker: Stanley Messenger
Stanley examines the Cathar assumption that the world was created by the devil and that the transformation of matter in to spirit is fundamental to Christianity. "To align oneself with the second coming one must find the balance by which desire is transformed in to love with the Christ working through the heart rather than the head. This represents the next stage in the evolution of the earth".
Title: ET Landings and the Crisis on Planet Earth
Speaker: Palden Jenkins
In a superb oration lasting nearly 150 minutes Palden Jenkins explores the realities of why extra terrestials are interested in humanity and why they would wish to visit our planet and communicate with us. He also considers what is required of humanity if it is to take its place within the wider universal community
Title: The Hibernian Mysteries
Speaker: Sylvia Francke
Described as the most ancient yet most modern of mysteries, the Hibernian Mysteries contain the information that can prepare humanity to carry its mission of individuality in to the future. What is the link between spiritually significant places such as Glastonbury and these mysteries?
Title: What’s the Matter with Spirit
Speaker: David Christie Murray
A fascinating lecture that contrasts what is meant by the paranormal, (a bridge between the material and spiritual realms) with what is meant by the spirit (all that any individual is capable of being in the context of eternity). David then relates aspects of consciousness to matter and energy explaining their inter relationships through scientific quantum theories and theological doctrine. Could the refinement of our physical being in to energy units of light, refined still further by the intelligence of our self consciousness realise our potential as spiritual beings?
Title: Human Values
Speaker: Satish Kumar
Are the values embedded in societal models representative of true human values? Satish begins the lecture by comparing human values in terms of ecological values, discussing Gaia, Deep Ecology, Shallow Ecology, Permaculture and Bio-regionalism. He then demonstrates how thinking globally yet acting locally can contribute to change and the birthing of a global human community that is based on equality, respect, love and sustainability instead of wealth creation, fear and the enhancement of our inability to trust.
Title: The Greek Spirit
Speaker: Howard Smith
What can we learn from earlier civilisations (the Atlanteans, American Indians, Indians, Persians, Babylonians, Assyrians and Egyptians) about consciousness and the essence of being? A lecture that provides an insight in to the cosmic evolution of human kind and in particular how consciousness was viewed by the Greeks through their philosophy and their use of the tradition of myth and legend.
Title: Discovering Your Soul’s Purpose
Speaker: William Arkle
The human perspective is often concerned with the realities associated with a physical existence but how might our perspectives change can we raise ourselves to a higher level and recognise the significance of the conscious soul. In a fascinating lecture Bill considers three aspects of the soul and the soul's position in creation; from the point of view as our own human selves (do we believe that we have a soul), the angelic view of human beings and the view of the creator.

Title: The 12 Cosmic Laws: An understanding of how we can best be who we are
Speakers: Ann and Tony Neate
We are cosmic beings who have chosen to incarnate in to physical form here on planet Earth. In doing so we are governed by the natural laws of birth, growth and death, but it is the 12 Cosmic laws that govern the structure for spirit behaviour on a physical plane. Through understanding and working with them we can make decisions on how best to live and work energetically and in harmony with the cosmos, so speeding up the process of personal growth and spiritual evolution.
