Cameron Broughton - Master of Ceremonies
Cameron is honored to welcome all who join us at our 2010 Earth Spirit Conference and will be your host for the weekend. Opening the event with an introduction she will weave together the presenter's topics and how they relate to the theme of the weekend, Conscious Living in a Sacred World, a topic close to her heart. With her intuitive grace she will guide the events of the weekend, creating an atmosphere of unity and ease.
Glenn & Cameron Broughton
Seeds of Expansion
This presentation will start with a review of the life and work of Hamish Miller, a dowser extraordinaire and close friend and mentor of Glenn and Cameron. Because of his dedicated and groundbreaking work on rediscovering 'Earth Energies' our understanding of the nature of the web of life has expanded dramatically. In this joint presentation Cameron and Glenn will examine his legacy in the light of the wisdom bequeathed us by our Neolithic ancestors. We believe they naturally understood the energetic building blocks of creation and we'll show how we can utilize the lessons still present at sacred sites to create the world we have been dreaming about. Energies of the Earth, energies from the cosmos, Universal laws and our true innate potential will all come together to help guide us on the next leg of our journey. Hold onto your hats, this will be a truly inspiring start to the conference!
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 who has set up and led a non-profit community arts center, Earth Mysteries groups and ethical businesses.
Cameron's life journey as an explorer, seeker of spirit and facilitator of well-being has honed her intuitive abilities that she utilizes in her healing practice of 23 years and as a group tour leader. She was introduced to the ancient sacred sites of England in 1996 where she met Glenn and has been visiting them ever since. She has been particularly interested in the present evolutionary shift of consciousness and the connection between Earth energies and the human spirit.
Together Glenn and Cameron guide people to explore sacred sites and crop circles through Sacred Britain Tours. They co-organize this conference and regularly present at conferences on both sides of the Atlantic. Glenn has been the keynote speaker for the American and Canadian Society of Dowsers Annual Conventions. Glenn and Cameron have given interviews on crop circles and sacred sites on both television and radio.
New Dimensions, New Consciousness, New Worldview
The crop circles patterns seem to be preparing us and guiding us toward a new understanding of space and dimension and its intimate link to our conscious perception of the universe. But there are many other things happening in our world on the same parallel moving towards the same destination. Karen will be looking at these many parallels and drawing them together to try and distinguish what exactly this destination will be. Drawing on crop circle designs - then moving outwards into the wider world, she will explore the way in which mankind is moving inexorably towards a new state of perception and the discovery of new worlds and new realms.
Karen is a long time circles researcher who has for many years brought a genteel 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 - 2008) and Crop Circles: Signs, Wonders & Mysteries, Arcturus 2006. www.summerlectures.co.uk
Living Earth, Living Relations: Awakening the Dragon
Most indigenous and wisdom based cultures of the world honor and recognize the Earth and its elements, stones, waters, trees and vast plant and animal life as living conscious beings. They engage in symbiotic relationship with them in dynamic ways that defy logic and the Western rational view of the world. The elders of those cultures are also telling us that we are in the midst of an unprecedented awakening of human consciousness. It behooves us to consider this, and to enter relationship with the Earth and its many keepers. By doing so we can open to, and align with, the mysteries of Life. We shall explore these principals, through the landscape and sacred sites of New England, from the stone dream chambers of the Calendar sites, to the three sacred mountains and three lakes. These comprise a perfect Star Tetrahedron, a sacred geometry which signifies and contains the mysteries of the Union of Divine Feminine and Masculine Principles of Life. What they offer has profoundly affected those working with them in simple ceremony and living relationships.

Louise A. Dietzel, M.S.
The Power of Thinking to Transform your Life: Knowing What You Know, not What You have been Taught.
We live in a Sacred, marvelous Universe and we are Sacred. Our natural state and greatest asset is peacefulness. As visionary Prentice Mulford wrote in 1870, "Thoughts become Things." We know that our thoughts are vibrational energies that invite the same frequency into our daily lives. Our conscious and unconscious beliefs affect the connection. When our beliefs align with our desires, it is then that we are connected to our Sacred state of being. Our free will and choices are key factors in this process.
Louise shares concepts and steps in the creative process. Step one is taking responsibility for your thoughts, feelings and behavior and knowing that you are a gift to yourself and others who have the pleasure of your presence. Middle steps include understanding your birthrights, aligning with who you are rather than what you do and changing your beliefs that are opposite of your natural state. The last step is understanding easy ways to engage the abundant invisible forces in the universe to live joyfully and harmoniously with your environment and with others. You can know, believe and trust the creative power in you, and then with others, transform our world to greater love.

Voices of Humanity and the Earth: Reclaiming the Sacred Song
We live at a time when humanity's relationship with the earth is unprecedentedly precarious. As all of our previously held paradigms shift, change, and fall away before our eyes, each of us is being invited to examine in ever deepening ways the essence of what it means to be human at our very core, and to live from our deepest capacities to be responsible stewards of the planet we call home. The human voice is the most powerful vehicle through which human beings reconnect to the core of our essential selves, and by extension, to the source of life itself: our Earth. When we live from the core, we tap into the timeless wellspring of all human endeavor - to the source of creativity, imagination, and wonder that lives within each of us. We reconnect to our essential humanity, to our basic goodness as people, and to the call to heal the relationship between ourselves and our planetary home.
Internationally renowned performing artist, speaker, and voice healer Shyla Nelson is the founder of Live From The Core ™, an international movement whose mission is to reconnect humanity to the earth through reclaiming the sacred power of the human voice in spoken and sung word. Her choral movement through song, The Good Earth Singers, are an essential arm of the LFTC movement as the ambassadors of a message of hope and healing to humanity and the earth. She is the developer of the CoreVoiceTM Code, a holistic mind/body voice practice that facilitates healing and personal transformation. In addition to performing, presenting workshops, seminars, and public speaking engagements around the world, Shyla maintains a private practice at her studio in Vermont. www.shylanelson.com
Building a Sacred Image Key Grid
To build a Sacred Image Key Grid is to build a sacred site connecting from the Heart of the Universe to the Heart of the Earth. It is an incredible experience... it is intense... filled with wonder, beauty and joy... it is a blessing to all present, to the building, the land and the Earth herself. During the process all participants are offered a re-calibration of their energy fields in order that they may more fully connect with their full and true potential. The Sacred Image Key Grid is Sacred Geometry in action. It is based upon the Genesis Pattern and the Flower of Life while the building blocks are crystals and the Image Keys. The Image Keys are a series of Sacred Geometry Mandalas created by Barbara Evans through her interaction with members of the Spiritual Hierarchy. The Image Keys represent the colors and frequencies of Creation and the Higher Dimensions; they hold messages of universal wisdom from the Spiritual Hierarchy together with the energies of many crystals. The Image Keys are a call to awaken and create a new way of living and being... A call to create a New Earth and New Dream built upon Love, Peace and Unity.
Barbara's dance with Sacred Geometry began in 1999. As Barbara followed her guidance and intuition she embarked upon an incredible journey to create the Image Keys and build them into Sacred Grids around the Earth. Many aspects of her story and the first thirteen Image Keys can be found in her newly released book, Messages Of Universal Wisdom: A Journey of Connection through the Heart. The Sacred Geometry of the thirteen Image Keys together with Affirmations, Poems, Decrees and channelings from ArchAngel Metatron and Mary Magdalene form the heart of the book. The approach to Sacred Geometry is through the Divine Feminine... intuitive rather than mathematical. Her own story is one of transformation as she has moved from teaching biology in the UK to becoming a Visionary Healing Artist in the USA. Prints of the Image Keys and signed copies of her book will be available at Earth Spirit Conference; they can be viewed at www.CrystalWingsHealingArt.com
Crop circles: Circling around the Square
This will be Michael's twentyfirst consecutive crop circle season and he remains as perplexed (though as delighted) as he was at the start of his involvement.
He will show how the crop circles have demonstrated, since the early years, a fascination with the ancient conundrum of the Squaring of the Circle. The increasing complexity of the phenomenon's subtle communications around this subject will be illustrated. These ideas could be important to us in our current circumstance. There is, he argues, an urgent need for gaps to be closed and circles to be completed.
Michael is a much-loved, respected and influential figure of the crop circle community, whose work on the geometry and interpretation of the crop circles has spanned over 20 years. A former architect and teacher, he is now a renowned and inspirational speaker and writer; he has long occupied a central space at the heart of research into this phenomenon. Michael has written many articles on the crop circles. His book, Crop Circles (published by Wooden Books), is now in its third revised edition. He is also author of Cornography (2007) and most recently his book Crop Circles: The Bones of God is published in June 2009. Michael writes the 'Crop Circle Blog' for Temporary Temples.
Dr Jude Currivan PhD
A Co-creator's Guide to the Bigger Picture
Our collective Shift in consciousness is gathering pace. The turmoil of our global transformation is calling on us to choose. Either we retreat into fear or we leap into love. Either we retreat into the me, or we come together as we to co-create a new and whole-world. If we only see the surface of the ocean it can appear stormy. But if we look beneath, we can appreciate the calm that prevails in its depths. If we only see the surface of our lives, we will experience the storms that threaten to engulf us. The Shift though is empowering us, in the midst of surface chaos, to see deeper and further to the bigger picture and purpose of these transformational times. As we expand our awareness, we may then perceive how the old paradigms, the limited and fragmented ways we have adhered to must go. And discover ways for us to embrace, co-create and embody a new way of living in peace, justice and harmony with each other and the living Earth. Jude will share her understanding of the bigger picture of the Shift, as an empowering call to personal and collective action.
Jude is a healer, cosmologist and visionary with close ties to the crop circle phenomenon. She is the author of The 8th Chakra, The 13th Step and CosMos, co-authored with Ervin Laszlo PhD, published by Hay House.

Jude has experienced multidimensional realities and guidance from early childhood, has a Masters Degree in quantum physics and cosmology and a PhD in archaeology researching ancient cosmologies. Her books are now available in 12 languages and over 25 countries. Her worldwide work combines leading edge science, frontier research into consciousness and ancient and emerging spiritual wisdom to empower others and raise consciousness. Dr Jude has been named one of the five rising stars of the Mind Body Spirit movement by Kindred Spirit magazine and their readers voted The 13th Step the best personal development book of 2007. www.judecurrivan.com.

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."
