Our Legacy of Places of Power & the Transfiguration of the Soul
Ancient texts describe temples as windows into paradise, places where the individual can be “transformed into a god, into a bright star.” Tonight we shall examine topics such as: Can a sacred site alter an ordinary person into an extraordinary being? What and where is paradise? Why are sacred mountains geometrically aligned? How are temples engineered to a world grid? Why do periods of temple-building coincide with climate changes? What is the angle of manifestation? What are the Seven Gates to Perfection? To what degree do temples influence the human body?
The aim of the temple-builders was to preserve and transmit a body of spiritual knowledge capable of transfiguring the soul, for just as they once discovered, this knowledge offers a solution to a loss of confidence in the spirit, and through this self-empowerment we become masters of our selves. Their legacy is our common wealth.
Freddy Silva is one of the world’s leading researchers of places of power, ancient systems of knowledge, and the interaction between temples and consciousness. He is best-selling author of Secrets in the Fields, and Director of three documentaries. His new book is Common Wealth: Our Legacy of Places of Power and the Transfiguration of the Human Soul. He lectures internationally, with keynote presentations at the International Science and Consciousness Conference, the International Society For The Study Of Subtle Energies & Energy Medicine, and Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E, in addition to appearances on Discovery Channel, BBC, and radio shows. www.invisibletemple.com
The Technology of Consciousness
Mother Earth is calling us to awaken our higher consciousness. How can we live with awakened consciousness in daily life? Humanity's many wisdom traditions from around the planet offer answers to that in their insights, practices and techniques.
Carlos Glover will present a synthesis of this technology based on an ancient map used by the Mayan and pre-Mayan cultures, known as the Sacred Twenty Count. This comes to us in a form for our modern times known as the Discipline of Peace. Finding peace inside us is the first step to creating peace with our Earth and in our world.
Carlos lives with his family in Devon, England. He has trained in a body of Earth teachings that flourished among the Mayans, Toltecs and Olmecs, and draws on his knowledge of this and other wisdom traditions to help people grow in self-knowledge and heal themselves. He has been working with the Sacred Twenty Count for over twenty years and in this tradition he carries the name DiamondLight. He is a First Peace Seedplanter and is currently writing a book, "The Technology of Consciousness." www.earthwisdomteachings.co.uk
The Mystery of Earth Mysteries
What are Earth Mysteries and what do we know about them? Can any understanding of them help us to live our lives in a more harmonious relationship with the Earth? Drawing together research from many quarters Glenn has identified certain common threads; do they lead us to any universal truths? This lively and insightful presentation will range over such diverse topics as dowsing, sacred geometry, leylines, feng-shui, geomancy, galaxies, temples, stone circles, energy, water and a few other things as well. Glenn will share what ‘mysteries’ he has discovered to date.
Glenn Broughton has been fascinated by Earth Mysteries his whole life and they have been the main subject of his work over the last two decades. He relishes sharing these mysteries with those open to experiencing ‘reality’ in new ways. With his wife Cameron, Glenn has led hundreds of people on journeys of discovery to sacred sites through Sacred Britain Tours, now Journeys With Soul. They are also the founding organizers of Earth Spirit Conferences. www.journeyswithsoul.com
What on Earth is Going On?
There is much talk these days of the End Times, 2012, and the Apocalypse. Most of the discussion is founded in fear and from very limited perspective. Some say that we are in the midst of a consciousness shift or dimensional shift. If this is so, is there any evidence on the material plane that this is indeed what is happening? We will look at some of the most intriguing happenings in our solar system, on the earth itself, and the personal human level.
Ross Holcomb is a Metaphysical Consultant currently home based in Hood River, Oregon. After years of research and personal discovery he has developed an ever deepening understanding of "Life, the Universe, and Everything" and how it applies to health, well being, and staying in alignment with who you really are.

He practices and teaches Intuitive Energy Healing and provides guidance to individuals and groups regarding more evolved ways to work, play, learn, heal, and develop more meaningful relationships. Ross and Meredith are crop circle enthusiasts and have spent time in England each summer visiting the circles. www.energy-works.com
Leads a Forum Exploring Seeds of Expansion
Cameron will lead you through a guided meditation to journey to that deeper place of awareness within you where you are connected to your higher self and inner knowing. From this sacred place you will be invited to share an inspirational moment in your life that impacted you in such a way that it shifted your way of being. Passing the talking stick to those who would like to share we will weave our stories of inspiration shining light on us all.

Being the Change ~The Revelation of Gandhi and Saint Francis
When Gandhi spoke the now-famous words, "You must be the change you want to see in the world," he was echoing something that Saint Francis of Assisi said 800 years ago. Francis expressed it in this way--"Teach peace wherever you go, and when necessary, use words," This idea is as relevant today as it was then. Many of the great mystics and saints have said that ours is the time of prophesy, with each of us having an important role to play. This role does not always involve words or rhetoric, but rather presence and beingness. In this talk, James Twyman, known internationally as The Peace Troubadour, will share a unique perspective on the lives of both Gandhi and Francis, showing how their wisdom can impact the evolving consciousness of humanity and usher in a new world. Through music and stories James will share the inspiration that has made him one of the most sought-after presenters and authors in the spiritual field today.
James Twyman is an internationally renowned, best-selling author, filmmaker and musician who has a reputation for traveling to some of the world's greatest areas of conflict, sharing his message of peace. He has been called "The Peace Troubadour" and has performed his peace concert in countries like Iraq, Northern Ireland, South Africa, Bosnia and Serbia, drawing millions of people together in prayer to influence events of world crisis.
James has written twelve books including Emissary of Light, his first published book to his most recent, The Barn Dance. He has also produced or directed four films including the award winning Indigo, and the film version of The Moses Code. His CD's have inspired hundreds of thousands of people, and his performances at the United Nations, US Capitol and Pentagon, as well as grass roots projects like The Cloth of Many Colors, have made him one of the most influential spiritual peacemakers in the world. www.jamestwyman.com
Awakening Higher Consciousness ~ The Image Keys in Action
The Image Keys are a new and innovative system for raising and maintaining Higher Consciousness on both personal and planetary levels. These images interweave Sacred Geometry and Crystal Energies, while anchoring vibrations of the Higher Dimensions into visual, physical form.
Participate in a transformational experience as Barbara leads conference attendees in uniting to build a “Sacred Healing Grid” using the Image Keys and Crystals as building blocks.
In essence we will build a sacred site connecting from the Heart of the Universe to the Heart of the Earth. It is an intense and incredible experience… 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 awaken higher levels of consciousness and more fully connect with their true potential.
Barbara is an internationally recognized artist of the Image Keys and author of Messages Of Universal Wisdom. Returning to Earth Spirit she will be sharing developments in her work since the 2010 Conference.
The Image Keys can be viewed at www.CrystalWingsHealingArt.com
An Unparalleled Opportunity
Each of us chose freely to incarnate here on earth at this most vital time in human history. Our perception of this spiritual experience is as essential and determinate as the physical manifestation it creates. We all play a vital role in the transformation of our world as we move into a new paradigm. To unlock our greatest potential, we must become — and then in turn radiate — the same pure Love as our divine Source. Purity of intention in this process is the key to reconnecting ourselves as unconditionally heart-centered beings.
Bradfield brings to the stage a lifetime of his exploration of the heart and our eternal quest to rekindle the connection with Spirit. He shares his art as the most refined extrusion of his soul — not simply as a musical performance, but rather as a gift he brings to each member of his audience. Bradfield soothes, inspires and uplifts all in one breath, bathing us in a rich, authentic tapestry that reminds us who we are, of our own unique potential. In concert, the artist is an open heart, radiating Love with gentle intensity & a powerful yet humble presence.
The Three Hearts
The Three Hearts refers to wisdom arising from current indigenous elders and prophecies pertaining to this time of great change and transformation that we are in. Many speak to the Maya calendrical prophecies of 2012. The Maya High Elders, and other respected Elders, are releasing more and new information relating to these times, and how to make safe and sacred passage through these times. Most of us know that something is astir. The Maya say we have entered the End of Time as we Know It, and, that what we perceive as "normal", has "already left us, and will never be seen again." They say we are about to experience a change unlike any most of us can even imagine, in what other tribal peoples call The Time of Meeting Ourselves Again. The Elders of many cultures are speaking up with more clarity and determination to awaken us to the potential that awaits us, as well as what is likely to occur if we do not change our patterns of thought and action. They speak of methods to "Enter into Harmony with All Life," to help us through these times of chaos, stress, and anxiety, which more of us are reporting, and is inevitable during times of great change and rebirthing. The 3 Hearts Practice is one such method referred to by elders including the Maya, as a means to experience Harmony with All Life, and make this transition into awakened states a Reality. Zacciah, who is sharing this practice currently with audiences worldwide, will explain and offer this experiential practice to our participants.

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." www.worldonenesscommunity.com/group/onenessnortheast
