Dorset Earth Mysteries Group
Talks in Detail 2003
January 2nd - Dowsing the Serpent Energies of Ireland. Rodney Carr- Smith. Dowser and DEMG member Rodney returns to give us his latest dowsing results and theories regarding the serpentine energies that flow across the land. He will give us his experiences of his trip to Ireland in 2002, including visits to Newgrange, Knowth, the Boyne valley, wells and springs and other sacred sites. Illustrated with colour slides.
February 6th - The Return of Yesterday's People. Josephine Sellers. Josephine's previous book, "The Return" told of her incredible experiences at her former Dorset home, site of a stone circle. Her new book, "The Return of Yesterday's People" is an account of the many strange happenings that have taken place in her life. These incidents add strength to the theory that life is a continuing and developing cycle of energy-experience through time. Over a long period of time incidents interrelated with each other to produce evidence of earth energies, reincarnation, inter dimensional communication and the need for rescuing damaged souls in limbo. Tonight, Josephine tells her truly fascinating story.
March 6th - The Grail, the Triple Goddess and the Energies of the Earth. Sylvia Franke. Founder of the Surrey branch of the Wessex Research Group and co-author of "The Tree of Life and the Holy Grail", Sylvia will tonight explain the extraordinary wisdom of the ancients' understanding of the Grail, the Goddess and earth energies. This includes the Knights Templar mysteries, the four ethers as explained by Rudolf Steiner, and the significance of mistletoe and geological faulting in relation to sacred sites and dowsing. Illustrated.
April 3rd - Jesus and the Goddess. Tim Freke. Tim is author of the groundbreaking book "The Jesus Mysteries", in which he tells how many Christian rituals, ceremonies and stories were in fact based on previous pagan practice and myth. Was Jesus in fact the archetypal Dionysus or Osiris? How did the Virgin Mary fit into the role of the vanquished Goddess? The early Christians absorbed much of the wisdom of the Greek and Egyptian mystery traditions, and the early secret teachings of the Gnostics differ considerably from later Church versions, showing many parallels with the Druids and paganism.
May 1st - Goddess Sites in the West Country. Founder of the DEMG and local author, Peter will give a personal view of ancient places where he has seen evidence of worship of the Earth Mother, and where we can today still experience a close connection with the Earth Spirit. Includes colour slides of Stonehenge, Avebury, Glastonbury and other ancient sites.
June 5th - Secrets of the Sacred Ark. Sir Laurence Gardner. From the tombs of pharaonic Egypt, to the laboratories of modern science, comes the extraordinary account of gravity defiance and teleportation in the ancient world. Egyptian inscriptions refer to a hyper-dimensional realm associated with a magical powder of projection. Physicists have now discovered this to be a superconductive energy field of high-spin monatomic gold. This amazing substance was the secret of the pharaohs' rite of passage to the Afterlife, was directly associated with the pyramids and the biblical Ark of the Covenant. Sir Laurence Gardner is Preceptor of the Knights Templars of St. Anthony and Prior of the Kindred of St. Columba, is a UK Top-10 and internationally best-selling author, with acclaimed works in many languages.
July 3rd - Green Man, Black Madonna - Pagan Christianity? David Elkington. The green man is to be seen in a host of churches and cathedrals Europe-wide, but the green man is a world-wide symbol. Author and well-known speaker David Elkington is presently at work on a controversial new book with Robin Whitlock on the subject of the green man and his connection to an age long before the inception of Christianity. And yet the green man is curiously a Christian symbol? How do we answer this contradiction? Gnosticism, paganism, heresy and mystery will all play their part in this discussion of some of the lesser known facts about this very intriguing and captivating symbol.
August 7th - The Cerne Abbas Giant. Sidney Wood / Peter Knight / Rodney Carr-Smith This proud, enigmatic figure has been the subject of lively debate and controversy for hundreds of years. Tonight, three speakers will look at different facets of research into the well known chalk figure. Historian Sydney Wood will give a background on the historical ideas and folklore concerning the Giant. This will be followed by DEMG co-founder Peter Knight with his views on the role of the Giant, and its connection with leys, as well as the astronomical alignments he has uncovered. Finally, DEMG member and dowser Rodney Carr-Smith will reveal his dowsing results in the vicinity of the Giant and the village.
September 4th - Churches, Crop Circles and Sacred Sites - The Energy Connection. Freddy Silva. Why was resonance so important to the ancients? Why did the early Church superimpose its structures upon sacred sites, and why was sacred geometry encoded into these places of veneration? Why is water and electromagnetism always connected with these sites? And why are crop circles founded on identical principles? Tonight, these seemingly unconnected topics are threaded together to reveal the bigger picture behind our living landscape. But, most importantly, evidence will be presented on how crop circles are really being manifest. Freddy Silva is the author of the top-selling Secrets in the Fields: The Science and Mysticism of Crop Circles, having researched crop circles and their connection to the landscape for over 11 years.
October 2nd - Dorset's Mysterious Ancestors. Gary Biltcliffe. Many years ago, a mysterious Stone Head found in a Portland garden caused a stir. Locals recognised and revered this unique find as one of their ancient seafaring ancestors. Researcher and popular speaker Gary will reveal, with the aid of slides, many more strange finds discovered in the Dorset area linked with this mysterious race and talk about their origins. He will share his belief that they influenced a cultural revolution, resulting in the building many of the great earthworks we see around Britain.
