Title: The Spirituality and Teachings of Native American Indians
Speaker: Dennis Renault and Richard Peters
Central to the spirituality of Native American Indians is their relationship with the Earth. Dennis and Richard who are of the Lacota and Ojwa tribes of North America provide us with many other insights including their perspective on events that unfolded in the Americas and the importance of tradition as a foundation for knowledge. As indigenous people they remind us that whoever we are; we are all of the Earth that is our common bond. Our task is to understand this and that everything is life, everything is sacred and that life is a circle. We must also recognise that we have to reconnect with the Earth if we are to move forward.

Title: Terra Lucida. The Light Earth and the Humanity of Light. Re-awakening to Shambala
Speaker: Carol Fraser
Carol begins the talk with an Indian mantra and meditation before sharing her insight and knowledge of Shambala and its relevance to humanity. She attempts to bring the listener towards the actuality of Shambala, a real place, yet one that does not exist in the physical plane, but in another higher dimension or energetic vibration. Carol tells of how our conscious human link to Shambala was severed at the end of the Atlantean epoch, a time when the Earth was more etheric.

Title: Living Water
Speaker: Ted Pawloff

Ted then goes on to talk about the energetic properties of water and its relevance as the key to life on Earth.This talk illustrates the need for humanity to work with rather than work against the natural flow of energy in nature. Only when we are in balance ourselves can we realise our true potential in respect of the elemental worlds

Title: Music and Metamorphosis
Speaker: Anthony Rooley
In the first part of this lecture Anthony talks about the importance of the repertoire of 16th and 17th century music in terms of re-focussing our artistic efforts today. It was a period of innocence and inspiration, a time when the Lute and the minstrel took centre stage. Anthony talks about the origins of the Lute (the Queen of instruments), how it spread across Europe from its Arabic roots and how it is an instrument designed to draw the listener in. Anthony plays (on a Lute) three pieces of Elizabethan music before going on to talk about the divine role of the minstrel and renaissance music
Title: Raising the Planetary Vibration
Speaker: Wesley Tudor Pole
Wesley Tudor Pole presents us with the idea that a new ray of blended energy; one that combines cosmic wisdom and love has come to the Earth. This ray of energy provides humanity with an opportunity to move forward and upwards, reassessing our attitudes to the way in which we treat the Earth and all life upon it.
The speaker then goes on to talk about how a person might raise ones vibration through meditation, creative imagination and positive thinking and how this can counter negativity. Raising ones vibration requires one to look inwards and consider our relationship with the universe. It requires self-mastery, discipline and a belief that you are an indestructible being of light; ready to act of compassion and service to improve the planetary vibration through realigning with the elemental and spiritual kingdoms

This fascinating lecture which reminds us about the continuity of consciousness after death, the idea that we are all multidimensional beings existing in a multiverse and that any psychic gifts should be used for service
