Reminder: Nick Redfern lecture on UFO CONTACTEES – Saturday, August 21st

Nick Redfern Lecture on Research into UFO – CONTACTEES Saturday, August 21st @ 7pm Austin Center for Spiritual Living 4804 Grover Ave. Austin, TX 78756 Free Event / Donations Welcome / Raffle Prizes Contactees: A History of Alien-Human Interaction We are not alone…and Nick Redfern can prove it. Contactees contains the fascinating stories of the select group of people chosen by visitors to Earth to spread their message. Are aliens really among us? Don’t be too quick to dismiss their claims. Truman Bethurum was divorced by his wife because she believed he was having close encounters of a very personal kind with a beautiful extraterrestrial “space captain” named Aura Rhanes. Is he nuts? Prescient? An omen? A band of eerily human-looking, blond-haired aliens–later known as the Space-Brothers–informed other contactees that they were concerned by our warlike ways and wished … Read entire article »

Jung Society of Austin Lecture: Creative and Precognitive Dreams

Name: LECTURE: Creative and Precognitive Dreams Location First Unitarian Universalist Church, $12 members/$15 non-members Presenter Meredith Mitchell Semester FALL Start Date 2009-12-04 7:30pm End Date 2009-12-04 9:30pm Description: Did you know that perhaps the most popular song of all time, “Yesterday,” came to Paul McCartney in a dream? Dreams often function as mediators between the unconscious — where unfathomable mysteries seem to cook and coagulate — and consciousness. If we pay attention to the messages in dreams, we may give birth to unexpected and exciting ideas. Dreams can bring valuable insights as well. Sometimes, dreams seem to access the future, as in Abraham Lincoln’s dream of his death just before he was assassinated.We shall discuss both actual and legendary dreams that have given rise to significant changes, both personal and social. We shall also discuss verified dreams that have been precognitive or prophetic. How … Read entire article »

Dr. Katherine Albrecht Speaks on Microchips at Brave New Books

Every Tuesday over at Anomaly Television is “Science & Technology Tuesday” when I and my friend Floyd Anderson post the latest videos related to those topics. Well last Monday night Brave New Bookstore featured an important speaker (whose radio show I sometimes carry at Anomaly Radio). Dr. Katherine Albrecht is the leading expert in America fighting for your and my freedom from rampant surveillance society, prison planet, techno tracking and taxation. She was just here in Central Texas to fight the new MANDATORY pet-chipping happening just down the road in San Marcos. I went to the bookstore event hoping to catch her lecture, show my support and maybe even finally meet her face to face.

C.B. Scott Jones on UFO Disclosure – Austin Event

80 Years with a Blinking 3rd Eye – Free Austin Event The name C.B. Scott Jones is both obscure to many a casual UFO buff yet widely known among “deep seekers” of the UFOlogical and Parapsychological communities.

He supported the Fund for UFO Research (FUFOR), served on the board and as President of the American Society for Psychical Research (ASPR) and  served as board member for Atlantic University (a division of ARE, the Edgar Cayce organization the Association for Research and Enlightenment). … Read entire article »

The Citizine Community Political Forum was a Success

  Monday night was the most fun I’ve had since I saw Scott Horton debate and defeat war-monger Harvey Kushner.   Scott Horton, at my request, moderated a community political forum organized by good friend Thom White (publisher of CitizineMag) and featuring some of my favorite local political friends from several different political parties.   It was GREAT! Of course it helps that it was in a cool Austin setting; a place called Spiderhouse just off the main UT Drag. Access to beer during political events like this is a necessity.   Anyway … the reviews are in … below are some of the local media’s take on the event. Video to follow soon. … Read entire article »
