Alan Cooke

The Pros and Cons of Wireless Technology including 5G

Alan is a member of the Royal Society of Medicine and International Practitioners of Holistic Medicine. He qualified as a Magnotherapist in 2003
Following a three-year study Alan brings the results of peer reviewed scientific papers and top independent doctors as he talks about mobile phones, cordless landlines, smart meters and explains what 5G will mean for us all. Alan also reveals how most people are unaware that there is a warning hidden in the small print of all mobile phones not to hold them against your body (including in your pocket, or against your head whilst on a call). The most vulnerable people are children as their bodies contain 20% more water and because they have a much smaller frame than that of adults they absorb more of these waves. This presentation consists of Power Point slides and is interspersed with short videos and demonstrations.

How body therapies such as massage and acupressure can also access and release deeply held emotions, traumas and memories from our whole being.  This talk will give an overview as well as looking specifically at the work of Dr Aminah Raheem in developing Soul Lightening Acupressure.


Steve Hawker - A Brick In the Sewer

Beware of those who seek to profit from you by stealth


Roger Anderton - Pythagorean Brain Tuning

Modern education system through such methods as learning by rote causes a brain imbalance between left and right hand hemispheres of the brain, so most people live in one side of the brain instead of the other. While back in ancient times there was not this imbalance, so ancient man had a different perspective on looking at things; that is after being initiated through the ancient Mystery schools - especially the Pythagorean school. When brain is balanced this allows full access to brain functions such as releasing psychic abilities. Unfortunately, only know the theory and not able to do the practical.

Super Clues to Reality

Change of Speaker

Who are we?

Where did we come from?

How did we get here?

What are we doing here anyway?

These are the questions that I have researched over the years to try and make sense of the reality we think we are living in. Our reality is multi layered, multi dimensional and certainly not what we are taught it is.  All we can do is look at the available clues to try to make sense of it.

For my first book, Aspects of Reality - a users guide to the universe, I looked at science, philosophy, cosmology, human consciousness, other beings in our reality with us and much more. Whilst talking about my research I began to notice a pattern of clues, super clues, to a much  bigger reality beyond.

My book and talk Super clues to reality looks at these insights and comes to some surprising and interesting conclusions to what might actually be going on in this reality of ours.

Yuri Leitch

The Ogmios Line and the Celtic Mysteries of Dorset

This 60 minute presentation, followed by 30 minutes Q and A, will look at late Victorian occult intrigues about Dorset Earth Mysteries that have evolved to shed light upon the spiritual mysticism of the heartlands of the Celtic tribe of Dorset; the Durotriges, and their relationship to their sacred landscape – and beyond.  Peeling back the many centuries of intrigue – touching upon Glastonbury Tor and Gwyn ap Nudd; the isle of Portland; Maiden Castle; the Cerne Abbas Giant; the Celtic Sea Trade; Dion Fortune; Katharine Maltwood; and the great goddess of the land, Nemetona 'She of the Sacred Grove'.

Yuri Leitch is an artist and writer, born in Devon in 1968, he has spent most of his life in the West Country – and recent years in the Channel Islands of Jersey and Guernsey.  He has been involved with psychical research and Earth Mysteries studies since the late 1980s.  His main interests are Celtic mysticism and the occult intrigues of British history.  He is the author of many books including 'The Pagan Temple of Glastonbury Tor'; 'The Terrestrial Alignments of Katharine Maltwood & Dion Fortune'; and most recently - the seven-hundred page – 'Gwyn: God of Annwn'

History of the Phoenicians

Previous Speaker Cancelled

Phoenicians were the Mediterranean superpower before they got wiped out in the Punic wars. Romans wanted to wipe out the history of the Phoenicians so destroyed their library at Carthage. If there was an Atlantis then Phoenicians would have probably known about it in their lost records. Phoenicians were Ancestor worshippers, and the ancestors they worshipped became the deities of Greek mythology.
