I WELCOME YOU HERE WITH ALL MY HEART

I'm here to teach people how to love.

At the beginning, in the middle and at the end of our lives, LOVE is the only thing that matters.

Love--or the lack of it--is what shapes us. Love is what gives our lives beauty, inspiration and hope, what makes us feel that the trip is worth taking. And our relationships, our personal emotional connections, are the most profound expressions of our human longing for love. Nothing on earth will change you, fill your heart or break your heart so much as a relationship; and nothing can take you apart at the seams like a relationship break-up.

We are all desperate, hungry for love; and that's never been more true than at this chaotic and pivotal moment in human history. As we find ourselves going through more changes in a single lifetime than we ever imagined, we are stressed, afraid, and discouraged. We all need more love; but we don't how to get it. This is the greatest human tragedy, something our hearts and souls are begging to be changed.

I have devoted my life to writing books, and speaking and teaching about love, because that is my soul's calling. The purpose of my books and, really, of all my work is to illumine you about the things that stand in the way of loving yourself, having deep emotional connections, and experiencing more love in every single relationship in your life.

What are we all so scared of? Why is it so terrifying to open our hearts, show ourselves and receive the love that's coming toward us? How can we be more loving? What can you do so the person you love can feel it? How can you fight without killing each other? What, exactly, are the words and actions and attitudes that can make a difference?

I have written more than a dozen best-selling books about every topic related to love: how to survive the end of a relationship, how to find a true love, nourish the relationships you do have and embrace the spiritual dimensions of your relationship life. Most recently, I've written about how to get through the very tough times so many of us are in.

I also work as a therapist, counselor, spiritual guide and life coach, addressing the emotional issues that stand in the way of your becoming more intimate with yourself and everyone you want to hold dear, as well as how to express your essence through your creativity. I’ve been a guest on Oprah six times and my books have sold more than a million copies. Among them are The Future of Love, Coming Apart, The 9 Types of Lovers, Finding True Love, The Men We Never Knew, Loving Yourself; and most recently, the award-winning The Ten Things to Do When Your Life Falls Apart: An Emotional and Spiritual Handbook.

Whatever your pain or your journey, I'm here to help you have more love in your life.

With abundant love,

Daphne

Dr. Claude Swanson, Physicist, Scientist, Cosmologist, Astronomer, Energy Systems Researcher, Consultant and Applied Physics Expert
Guest Occupation: Physicist, Scientist, Cosmologist, Astronomer, Energy Systems Researcher, Consultant, Applied Physics Expert
Guest Biography:

BIO BELOW FROM: http://www.synchronizeduniverse.com/about_author.htm

Dr. Claude Swanson was educated as a physicist at MIT and Princeton University. During those years he worked at the MIT Science Teaching Center, Brookhaven National Laboratory and a Virginia cyclotron in the summer. At Princeton he received the National Science Foundation Fellowship and Putnam Fellowship. His Ph.D. thesis at Princeton was done in the "Gravity Group," which focuses on experimental cosmology and astronomy, and was headed by Dr. Robert Dicke. His thesis advisor was Prof. David Wilkinson, who later became chairman of the physics department.

Swanson conducted postgraduate work at Princeton and Cornell Universities on the design of superconducting plasma containment vessels for fusion energy systems. He then began work for Aeronautical Research Associates of Princeton, a consulting company, and later formed his own consulting company which carried out studies in applied physics for commercial and governmental agencies, including DuPont, United Technologies, the U.S. Army and Navy, DARPA and the CIA, among many others.

For the last fifteen years, interspersed with his conventional professional career in applied physics, Dr. Swanson has pursued investigations into "unconventional physics." His principal interest has been unified field theory, the so-called "Theory of Everything" which could explain the universe at the deepest possible level. This has led him to investigate many aspects of the paranormal, which appear to be completely real phenomena which violate our present science. Paranormal phenomena, which have now been proven in the laboratory in many cases, offer a window into the deeper universe, the mysteries of consciousness, and unlock new forces and principles which conventional science has only begun to glimpse.

Among paranormal phenomena which are now known, it has been found that signals can move much faster than light, and the human consciousness and even human influence, can move backward and forward in time. Science fiction concepts such as teleportation and levitation seem to occur in reality in paranormal events, and offer powerful evidence that this will be the new frontier of science.

At the same time, thousands of out-of-body and near-death experiences show that other dimensions and other realities do exist. This has been the domain of speculation by theoretical physics, but OBE and NDE cases indicate that parallel realities and dimensions are in some sense real. And finally, paranormal research suggests that the human soul, the center of human consciousness, can survive death and is apparently an energy form which can move and exist independently of the body. Science is discovering that, in the words of the pioneer Robert Monroe, " we are far more than our physical bodies."

Dr. Swanson has conducted extensive research in these areas, including research of the scientific literature, interviews with scientists in these fields, attended and spoken at conferences, and conducted experiments and investigations, to better understand how such paranormal phenomena can be incorporated into modern science.

This research has involved underwater archaeology in Bimini, scientific measurements in haunted houses, experiments in remote viewing and psychokinesis, and testing of new devices which can measure these strange forces. He has just published a book, The Synchronized Universe, which summarizes some of the new discoveries of this emerging science.

Dr. Bernie Siegel, Humanitarian, Physician, Counselor, Medical Ethics Authority, Spiritually Influential, Healing Pioneer, Professor, Humanitarian, Educator, Author, Writer and World Wellness Activist
Guest Occupation: Humanitarian, Physician, Counselor, Medical Ethics Authority, Spiritually Influential, Healing Pioneer, Professor, Humanitarian, Educator, Author, Writer, World Wellness Activist
Guest Biography:

BIO BELOW FROM: http://berniesiegelmd.com/about/

For many, Dr. Bernard Siegel—or Bernie, as he prefers to be called—needs no introduction. He has touched many lives all over the Planet. In 1978, he reached a national and then international audience when he began talking about patient empowerment and the choice to live fully and die in peace. As a physician who has cared for and counseled innumerable people whose mortality has been threatened by illness, Bernie embraces a philosophy of living and dying that stands at the forefront of the medical ethics and spiritual issues our Society grapples with today. In May 2011, Bernie was honored by the Watkins Review of London, England, as one of the Top 20 Spiritually Influential Living People on the Planet. He continues to break new ground in the field of healing, supporting changes in medical education to “humanize” medical practice.

Bernie was born in Brooklyn, NY, and attended Colgate University and Cornell University Medical College. He graduated with honors and holds membership in two scholastic honor societies, Phi Beta Kappa and Alpha Omega Alpha. He trained to become a surgeon at Yale New Haven Hospital, West Haven Veteran’s Hospital and the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh. In 1989, Bernie retired from Yale as an Assistant Clinical Professor of General and Pediatric Surgery to speak to patients, their families and caregivers.

In his latest book, his 12th, published in September 2011, entitled A BOOK OF MIRACLES—Inspiring True Stories of Healing, Gratitude, and Love, Bernie is described in the Foreword written by Deepak Chopra who tells us “Bernie Siegel began his writing career twenty-five years ago, and from the outset he didn’t shy away from miracles. The title of his first bookLOVE, MEDICINE & MIRACLES (1986)—flaunted his disagreement with mainstream medicine. An MD who advised more love as a path to healing would have been in enough trouble. Opening the possibility of miracles was grounds for dismissal. In his new book, Bernie reaffirms his original beliefs, and with a lifetime’s wisdom and experience, he trusts in miracles more than ever.”

Bernie’s writings in the 12 books he has published so far reflect his passion to reach people struggling with all of life’s challenges—not just the physical ones—so that each person can live life fully with the understanding that, as Bernie reminds us, “We only have today.” Believing that we are all here to love one another, Bernie has crafted eternal truths and the timeless wisdom of the ages into his reflections on the true stories of his patients in much of his work. But he has also produced wonderful resources for everyone like 365 Prescriptions for the Soul (Daily Messages of Inspiration, Hope, and Love), and 101 Exercises for the Soul (A Divine Workout Plan for Body, Mind, and Spirit). Bernie’s books also include those like Love, Magic & Mudpies, a great resource for parents and delightful, loving stories like Buddy’s Candle to help children of all ages cope with the loss of a loved one, be it a pet or parent. Reflecting on his work so far, Bernie quotes Woody Allen who once said, “If I had one wish it would be to be somebody else.” Bernie’s wish was to be a few inches taller, and can say now that he is a few inches taller because his work has been such a growth experience.

In 1978, nearly a decade before retirement, Bernie launched ECaP—Exceptional Cancer Patients, in which he and his wife and co-worker, Bobbie, remain active today. ECaP is a therapeutic approach Bernie calls Carefrontation that helps patients interpret their drawings, dreams and images to express their feelings about the healing process. The physical, spiritual, and psychological benefits that emerge strengthen the immune system, a direct response to the power of the Mind-Body Connection about which Bernie has written and spoken extensively. He is currently working on other books with the goal of empowering patients and teaching survival behavior to enhance immune system competency. Bernie believes that in the next decade, the roles of consciousness, spirituality, non-local healing, body memory, and heart energy will all be explored more intensively as scientific subjects.

All along the way, Bernie’s wife, Barbara H. Siegel—or Bobbie—has been a mainstay at workshops on helping patients interpret their drawings and especially, with a talent for very funny one-liners, at workshops on the healing power of humor. Bobbie, a graduate of Oswego State Teachers College with a BS in Early Childhood Education, credits her academic work as the preparation she needed to educate and train Bernie. On his part, Bernie does say that her guidance has helped him become the person he is today. Bobbie and Bernie raised five children together and now, as then, live in a home full of children’s things (for their eight grandchildren), pets, and especially love.

Shelly Kalnitsky, Cell Phone Radiation Activist and Researcher
Guest Occupation: Cell Phone Radiation Activist, Researcher
Guest Biography:

Shelly Kalnitsky

A little over ten years ago, Boca Raton resident, Shelly Kalnitsky, was watching ABCs 20/20, when he saw a twenty minute feature story on the dangers and potential risks of cell phone usage. The news show interviewed lobbyists and wireless representatives, who all denied there was a problem.

Kalnitsky was compelled to learn more about what he had just heard. He began researching the world news regarding cell phones and discovered that information abroad included studies conducted by prominent scientists, who reached very different conclusions than what is being reported in the U.S.

Kalnitsky got very concerned, especially about the danger to children, misinformation about hands-free kits and a lack of independent and unbiased reporting on cell phone issues. Kalnitsky was so disturbed by what he found, that he established the Cell Phone Radiation News Bureau (www.cprnews.com), a one-stop information center and source for learning more about the potential health risks from cell and cordless phones. This bureau is intended to keep the public consumer informed and to prevent future health-related problems from cell phone use.

As director of the Cell Phone Radition News Bureau, Kalnitsky felt that there must be something he could do to protect people from this harmful radiation. http://www.waveshield.com/

Aaron McCollum, MKUltra Project Talent and Psychic Warrior
Guest Occupation: MKUltra Project Talent, Psychic Warrior
Guest Biography:

Aaron McCollum, MKUltra Project Talent, Psychic Warrior - You Decide!

http://projectcamelot.org/aaron_mccollum.html

Aaron McCollum is a walking testimonial of the light and the dark forces living and walking on this planet beside and within all of us, and the ultimate power of Love that endures all.

Aaron is a dolphin-human hybrid whose body was created as part of a government 'black op' program called Project Seagate. To radically generalise, a 'black op' program is kept from public knowledge by many means including the classifying of documents, disinformation propaganda, elimination of witnesses' etc...all those things that make a great science fiction or action movie...it's likely that most, if not all, of our favorite movies and books, have some basis in truth.

How is that possible? A human- dolphin hybrid? It depends who you ask, and of course, an open mind and heart are necessary. To cut to the chase, I would look at the interesting discovery of Lloyd Pye and what he calls the Starchild Project. He is in possession of a skull that was found in a cave in Mexico that has many anomalies compared to a human skull. The most recent DNA testing reveals that the skull has human DNA and also a substantial portion of an as yet unidentified DNA. He posits that this is proof of a genetic engineering process with an extraterrestrial race that was done approximately 8-900 years ago. Here is the full report.

This may be the first time many of you reading this have ever heard of such a thing, or really thought it may actually happen 'off camera', but get ready folks, this is just the beginning. There are so many things that we the people have not been told and it's only through the courage of people like Aaron telling their stories that we will ever know that those feelings we have had all our lives telling us that something just wasn't right here, are real. There is more to the picture than meets the eye and we now have an opportunity to listen to one another, let our minds be blown away along with the outdated belief systems that hold them in place, and welcome the missing pieces of truth that we have been longing for. All things are possible. The Universe is a very big place, indeed!

One of the great triumphs in Aaron's story is the power and conviction of his Soul. I am seeing that it takes more than an ova and a sperm to make a human. It takes a Soul. The Soul is the life giving part and when the Soul leaves, the body quickly turns to not, or to rot - ha ha :-)

Aaron was groomed from an infant to take orders and do what he was told until one day in 2005 he took the orders of his higher conscience - Soul, instead.

His intelligence and warmth reveal his compassion for humanity as he now is in the process of healing and discovering who he really is and what he has come here for. He has the sharp orderly mind of many ex-military whistle blowers that I have come to respect and appreciate a lot.

You are all invited to join us this Saturday for a spontaneous celebration of truth and quite possibly the birthing of a whole new understanding of the human as a species here on planet Earth.

Sandra Cabot M.D., Medical Doctor, Surgeon, Diplomate, Lecturer, Natural Health Specialist and Author
Guest Occupation: Medical Doctor, Surgeon, Diplomate, Lecturer, Natural Health Specialist, Author
Guest Biography:

Dr Sandra Cabot has written several very popular books on health and she is very well known under this name. Dr Cabot's best selling the Liver Cleansing Diet book was awarded The Australian People's Choice Award in 1997.

You may find it interesting to know that Sandra chose the nom de plume of "Dr Cabot" in 1982, as in those days Australian medical doctors were encouraged to use a nom de plume (or writer's name) if they were going to write books and participate in the health media. This was considered ethical behavior and was smiled upon by the medical registration boards, as it could then not be construed as to be advertising for extra patients.

There are many well known medical doctors in Australia (such as Dr "Sally Feelgood" and Dr "James Wright") who use a writer's and/or media name for this purpose, and who continue to practise medicine under their professional names. This is considered to be more ethical and conservative, which is appropriate as the medical profession is a conservative profession.

Dr Sandra Cabot's professional name is Dr Sandra McRae and her ancestors came from Scotland and England. There is also a touch of French ancestry in Sandra, and that is why she chose a French nom de plume!

Dr Sandra McRae is a registered medical doctor in NSW, Australia where she has medical practices in which she works with other medical doctors and naturopaths.

Dr Sandra McRae was born in Adelaide South Australia in 1952 and trained in medicine and surgery at Adelaide University in South Australia.

Sandra McRae graduated in medicine and surgery with honours in 1975 from Adelaide University South Australia.

In Australia a bachelor of medicine and surgery is designated by the letters MBBS, which appear after the name of the doctor. Sandra McRae is also a diplomate of the Royal Australian College of Obstetricians & Gynaecologists and this is designated by the letters DRCOG. Thus the correct title of Dr Sandra McRae in Australia is MBBS, DRCOG.

Dr Sandra Cabot is published in many different countries and languages. In the USA Sandra uses the letters MD after her name, which is the American equivalent of the Australian MBBS, and simply means Medical Doctor and not Medical Doctorate.

During the mid-1980s Dr Cabot spent 6 months working as a volunteer doctor at the largest missionary hospital in India (the Leyman hospital). Here she studied tropical & infectious diseases and tended to the poor indigenous women with obstetric emergencies.

Dr Sandra Cabot travels extensively giving lectures and public seminars and visits isolated areas in Australia to share her message of natural health. Dr Cabot has lectured for the American Liver Foundation and the Primary Biliary Cirrhosis Society. Today she is asked by many different organizations and hospitals to lecture all over Australia and New Zealand. Some of the proceeds of Dr Cabot's book sales are donated to support Women's Refuges in Australia.

Dr Cabot believes that the most important health issues for people today are:–

  • The control of obesity & the prevention of diabetes
  • Educating our children about a healthy diet & lifestyle
  • Protecting the planet from pollution and wild life extinction
  • Avoiding the overuse of drugs (polypharmacy), especially when nutritional medicine may be able to achieve the same (and usually a better effect) for less cost & less risk.
  • Spreading government funding and subsidization equally between drug treatments & nutritional/complementary medicine.
  • Educating doctors about the correct use of nutritional medicine
  • The effective treatment of mental & emotional illness
  • A supportive and well educated community where people are guided to find the best health care.

Dr Cabot has a very exciting life meeting so many new people all over Australia and the USA. Thankfully she still has time to practice medicine.

Michael Sharp, Ph.D., Academic, Sociologist, Psychologist, Researcher, Writer, Author and Spiritual Experiencer
Guest Occupation: Academic, Sociologist, Psychologist, Researcher, Writer, Author, Spiritual Experiencer
Guest Biography:

My name is Dr. Michael Sharp and I'm an an academic with a PhD in sociology and undergraduate degrees in both psychology and sociology. I am the husband of Gina, parent of Stephen, Niko, Vayda, and Tristan, and the caretaker of two cats and two dogs. I teach at a university and at one time did research in scholarly journals and scholarly communication.I even started the world's first electronic sociology journal all those years ago. Now, however, my interests have changed. These days my research and writing is based in a cross between psychology, sociology, and dyed in the wool mysticism.

About ten years ago I had a series of powerful mystical experiences that led me to question both my childhood religious training (I was born and raised Catholic) and also my adopted scientific atheism. Shortly after having these mystical experiences, actually shortly after clearing some rather deeply buried and profound fears that I had struggled with my entire adult life (fears partly the result of my Catholic indoctrination, and partly the result of past life experiences), I began writing spiritual books.

When I started to write, or rather a few months after I started, I thought that I'd write two or three books on chakras, ascension, crystal children, and cosmology. Unfortunately, my unambitious aspirations soon disintegrated because the more I explored the mystical hallways of creation, the more I learned, and the more I wrote about what I was learning, the more dissatisfied I became with current (and past) spiritual offerings. In fact, as time passed it quickly became clear to me that our collective understanding of all things spiritual was incomplete and corrupted. The glorious truths of spirituality, God, and our place and purpose in creation that previous spiritual teachers had brought to this world had been turned against us. Truths that should have empowered and freed us were now factors in our energetic and spiritual oppression. And what was worse, the corruptions and inaccuracy were ubiquitous. From the big religions of this world right down to our modern new age alternatives, all we heard was the lie of how imperfect, flawed, and unevolved we were and how much we deserved (or, if we had adopted a more "progressive" religion/spirituality, had chosen) the world as it currently existed. I soon realized that all these "old world" systems of spiritual thought did was provide excuses and justifications for the political, economic, and social nonsense of this world and for me that was not only unacceptable, but a wholly innaccurate farce of the the high Truths of creation. Having "touched the face of God" more than a few times I bloody well knew that in the eyes of God (or consciousness if you prefer), none of the war, suffering, violence, poverty, and shit and abuse that passes for "life" on this world was acceptable. In fact, to be perfectly honest, it was all a blasphemy in the eyes of God and it all had to be fixed.

Well you wanted to know more about me and there you have it. My name is Michael Sharp and I am building a new spiritual system that is totally self-contained, contains none of the justifications, hierarchies, exclusions, and disempowering archetypes of the old world, and that puts you (gradually and by safe degrees) in touch with the awesome light, power, and glory of your true inner divinity. It really is like nothing you've ever experienced before and if you're ready to remove the blindfold and cast off the chains that bind, just scan your eyes over the left hand menu, click The Lightning Path, and start reading from there.

Beginning in early childhood he has experienced first-hand contact with a variety of paranormal phenomena that have left him a bit puzzled, flummoxed and thoroughly persuaded that there is much more to the Earth and to human perception and consciousness than the mainstream American culture believes.

Some of Richard’s favorite research and reading interests are underground and underwater bases and tunnels,  electronic mind control, Freedom Technology, UFOs, human prehistory and remote antiquity, international politics, the Kundalini energy and alternative thought patterns.

Richard has discussed his work on many radio, TV and Internet programs including Art Bell's Dreamland, Coast to Coast AM with George Noory, the Lou Gentile Show, the Laura Lee Show, Out There TV with Kate and Richard Mucci, Strange Daze with Don Ecker,  Jeff Rense's Sightings on the Radio, the Zoh Hieronimus Show, Mitch Battros’s Earth Changes TV, the Uri Geller Show, the BBC, FOX News (Phoenix), Ted Loman's UFOAZ Talks, Evident Footprints with Don Nicoloff on BBS Radio, Signs of the Times with Laura Knight-Jadczyk, Through the Keyhole with Rich Dolan, Earthfiles with Linda Moulton Howe, and numerous others. He has also spoken at the Whole Life Expos in Las Vegas and Los Angeles, the International UFO Congress in Laughlin, Nevada, Joan Ocean’s E.T. and Dolphin Conference in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, the Leeds (U.K.) International UFO Conference, the NEXUS Magazine International Conference in Amsterdam, the National UFO Conference in Bordentown, New Jersey, HUFON (Houston MUFON), Orange County MUFON, the 2004 and 2005 X-Conferences in Gaithersburg, Maryland, and the Little A’LE’ INN in Rachel, Nevada.  Dr. Sauder also has appeared as an invited author at the UFO Festival in Roswell, New Mexico.

His writings and interviews have appeared in  diverse magazines such  as NEXUS Magazine, UFO Magazine (U.S. and U.K.), Atlantis Rising, UFO Universe, Dossiers Secrets d'États, and on many websites such as Karmopolis.be, rense.com, cyberspaceorbit.com, sott.net and others. Richard’s interest in UFOlogy and related phenomena extends back to childhood and has continued uninterrupted into his adult years. His underground and underwater bases and tunnels research commenced in 1992 and continues to the present day. He has a B.A. in sociology, an M.A. in Latin American studies, an M.S. in forestry and a Ph.D. in political science. He currently resides in San Antonio, Texas where he independently pursues his research.

Dr. Peter A. Sturrock, Mathematician, Electron Physics Researcher, Nuclear Physics Expert, Inventor, Professor, Scientist, Applied Physics Engineer, Astrophysician, Director, Writer, Educator and Chairman
Guest Occupation: Mathematician, Electron Physics Researcher, Nuclear Physics Expert, Inventor, Professor, Scientist, Applied Physics Engineer, Astrophysician, Director, Writer, Educator, Chairman
Guest Biography:

Peter A. Sturrock (b. England, 1924) studied mathematics at Cambridge University from 1942 until 1949, with a three-year interruption (1943-46) to carry out countermeasures research at the Telecommunications Research Establishment (TRE), now the Royal Radar Establishment (RRE). He was elected to a scholarship at St John's College in 1947, was awarded the University Rayleigh Prize for mathematics in 1949, and was elected to a fellowship at St John's in 1952. Research work on electron physics carried out at the Cavendish Laboratory, Cambridge University, the National Bureau of Standards in Washington (1949-50), and the Ecole Normale Superieure at the University of Paris (CNRS Fellow, 1950-51), earned him a Ph.D. in 1951. His Ph.D. dissertation was later expanded and published as a monograph entitled Static and Dynamic Electron Optics in 1955.

Sturrock subsequently pursued research in nuclear physics as Harwell Research Fellow at the Atomic Energy Research Establishment, England (1951-53); research on plasma physics as Fellow of St. Johns' College, Cambridge (1953-55); research on microwave tubes as Research Associate in the Microwave Laboratory at Stanford University (1955-58, 1959-60); and research on accelerator physics as Ford Foundation Fellow at the European Center for Nuclear Research (CERN), Geneva (1958-59). During this period, Sturrock made a number of inventions, one of them being a microwave tube that operates on a principle subsequently named the "free-electron laser."

Sturrock was appointed Professor of Engineering Science and Applied Physics in the School of Engineering and the Physics Department at Stanford University in January 1961, and is currently Professor of Space Science and Astrophysics in the Applied Physics Department and, by courtesy, in the Physics Department. Sturrock was Chair of the Founding Committee of the Institute for Plasma Research and served as Director from 1964-74 and from 1980-83. He subsequently served (in 1982-83) as Chair of the Founding Committee of the Center for Space Science and Astrophysics and served as Deputy Director from 1983-92 and as Director from 1992 to the present. He also served as Chair of the committees that established (in 1983) the Stanford-NASA-Ames Institute for Space Research, and (in 1986) the Stanford-Lockheed Institute for Astrophysical and Space Research. Since 1961, he has worked primarily on plasma physics, solar physics and astrophysics, but takes an interest also in scientific inference and in the history and philosophy of science. He has published over two hundred scientific articles and two monographs, and has edited five volumes that review plasma physics, solar physics and astrophysics. His most recent monograph, Plasma Physics, an Introduction to the Theory of Astrophysical, Geophysical and Laboratory Plasmas, is a textbook on plasma physics based on a graduate level course that he has taught at Stanford for over twenty years. It is the first book to be published as part of the new Cambridge-Stanford textbook series.

From 1965-66, Sturrock served as Chairman of the Division of Plasma Physics of the American Physical Society, and from 1974-75 as Chairman of the Solar Physics Division of the American Astronomical Society. He was Director of the Summer School on Plasma Astrophysics at Varenna, Italy, in 1966; Chairman of the Organizing Committee of the Conference on Plasma Instabilities in Astrophysics held at Asilomar in 1968; and Director of the Skylab Workshop on Solar Flares held at Boulder in 1977. He has also served on many national panels and committees, notably (1984-85) as Chairman of the Advocacy Panel that reviewed Solar Physics for the National Academy of Sciences.

Sturrock is a member of the American Astronomical Society, the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, the International Academy of Astronautics, and the International Astronomical Union, and is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the American Physical Society, and the Royal Astronomical Society. Sturrock's interests in the role of anomalies in the progress of science led him to chair the Founding Committee of the Society for Scientific Exploration and since 1982 he has served as President of the Society that now has over 500 members worldwide and publishes a quarterly journal. In 1967, Sturrock received the Gravity Prize (for gravitational research) from the Gravity Research Foundation; in 1977, the Lindsay Award from NASA Goddard Space Flight Center; in 1986 the Hale Prize for solar physics from the American Astronomical Society; in 1990, the Arctowski Medal for solar-terrestrial research from the National Academy of Sciences; and in 1992, the Space Sciences Award from the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics.

Michael Tellinger Author and Founder of the Ubuntu Party
Guest Occupation: Export Author, Writer, Scientist, Pharmacist, Researcher, Musician, Editor, Artist, Producer, Historian
Guest Biography:

Michael Tellinger has become one of South Africa’s bestselling export authors. His regular articles on human origins and his book Slave Species of god have been praised by readers in over 20 countries.

Michael is a scientist in the true sense of the word, never shying away from controversial issues, scrutinising every clue meticulously. He graduated in 1983 from the University Of Witwatersrand Medical School, Johannesburg, with a B.Pharmaceutics degree, a passion for the cosmos, genetics and human history.

His research and astute understanding of his subject matter has made him a regular guest on many radio shows in the USA and UK with popular hosts like George Noory on Coast to Coast; Kevin Smith, Hillary Raimo, American Freedom Radio, Howard Hughes in the UK; the Camelot Project, and more.

Before applying his writing and research skills to books, Michael followed his other passion, for music. He spent much of his early years in the arts performing on stage and screen. As part of the duo “Stirling & Tellinger” he had several music hits in South Africa. In 1986, he worked in Los Angeles for Cannon Films as a sound designer and editor; and wrote and recorded the controversial anti-apartheid song “We come from Johannesburg”, which was banned under the previous regime. His latest contribution to the arts was a song called “Side By Side With Angels”, for the TSUNAMI disaster fund in 2005, which featured a number of top SA artists. He has written a number of screenplays, children’s educational books and TV shows.

As a producer he created a variety of TV shows and worked as a presenter on numerous others. As a writer in advertising in 1989, he received a Clio award in New York and in 2000 he presented his own weekly show on 567 Cape Talk radio in Cape Town, exploring technology, science and astronomy.

After a 30-year long obsession with the origins of humankind and the genetic anomalies of our species, he took some time out to write Slave Species of god, which became an instant bestseller in South Africa. When Johan Heine exposed the mystery of the stone ruins of South Africa to Michael in 2007, they began an irreversible process of research that led Michael to some startling scientific conclusions and the completion of two more books, Adam’s Calendar and Temples Of The African Gods.

It is uncanny that Michael’s passion for music and his understanding of sound frequency, harmonic resonance and wave formation in scientific terms, has allowed him to make the astounding breakthrough in decoding the mystery of the ancient ruins and lost civilisations of southern Africa.

Michael Tellinger, is an author of four books, scientist and explorer, who has become a real-life Indiana Jones, making ground-breaking discoveries about advanced vanished civilizations at the southern tip of Africa. His continued efforts and analytical scientific approach have produced stunning new evidence that will force us to rethink our origins and rewrite our history books.

Michael is the founder of the global UBUNTU Liberation Movement of higher consciousness and the UBUNTU Party as a political front for this global movement, with members in over 200 countries. The UBUNTU Party participated in the South African elections on the 7th of May 2014 under his leadership - and is now also registered in the UK as a political party. The UBUNTU Party UK will participate in the UK elections on 7 May 2015 under the leadership of Paul Toussaint.

Michael's major contribution to the field of ancient discovery has been delivering the proof of the tools and artefacts that support his scientific findings. He discovered more than 10 million stone ruins that are not dwellings, but energy generating devices. His Torus Stone, that crashed the TSA security systems at DOHA International Airport in July 2013, has sparked the imagination of the global scientific fraternity in the quest for delivering a new free energy device to the people of the world.

Dr. Stephen E. Braude, Doctor of Philosophy, Professor, Parapsychologist, Writer, Author, Pianist, Music Composer and Stereo Photographer
Guest Occupation: Doctor of Philosophy, Professor, Parapsychologist, Writer, Author, Pianist, Music Composer, Stereo Photographer
Guest Biography:

Stephen E. Braude is Emeritus Professor of Philosophy and Former Chair of the Department at the University of Maryland Baltimore County. He is Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Scientific Exploration.

He studied Philosophy and English at Oberlin College and the University of London, and in 1971 he received his Ph.D. in Philosophy from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.

After publishing a number of articles in the philosophy of language, temporal logic, and the philosophy of time, he turned his attention to several related problems in the philosophy of science and the philosophy of mind — in particular, questions concerning causality, scientific explanation generally, and psychological explanation specifically. One of his overriding concerns was to demonstrate the inadequacy of mechanistic theories in psychology and cognitive science.

Prof. Braude also examined the evidence of parapsychology to see whether it would provide new insights into these and other traditional philosophical issues.

After that, he shifted his focus to problems in philosophical psychopathology, writing extensively on the connections between dissociation and classic philosophical problems as well as central issues in parapsychology—for example, the unity of consciousness, multiple personality and moral responsibility, and the nature of mental mediumship.

Prof. Braude is past President of the Parapsychological Association and is the recipient of several grants and fellowships, including Research Fellowships from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the BIAL Foundation in Portugal. He has published more than 60 philosophical essays in such journals as Noûs; The Philosophical Review; Philosophical Studies; Analysis; Inquiry; Philosophia; Transactions of the Charles S. Peirce Society; Philosophy, Psychiatry and Psychology; Social Philosophy and Policy; New Ideas in Psychology; The Journal of Scientific Exploration; and The Journal of Trauma and Dissociation.

He has written five books: ESP and Psychokinesis: A Philosophical Examination (Temple University Press, 1979; revised edition, Brown Walker Press, 2002); The Limits of Influence: Psychokinesis and the Philosophy of Science (Routledge, 1986; revised edition, University Press of America, 1997); First Person Plural: Multiple Personality and the Philosophy of Mind (Routledge, 1991; revised edition, Rowman & Littlefield, 1995); and Immortal Remains: The Evidence for Life After Death (Rowman & Littlefield, 2003); and most recently, The Gold Leaf Lady and Other Parapsychological Investigations, which describes Prof. Braude's own encounters with the paranormal.
