comprehensive understanding and skill set for further engagement in the
area your master teacher provides.

Lynne is an
investigative journalist, and began work on "Living the Field" four
years ago as a personal quest. Her research took her to many areas
around the globe, meeting with top frontier scientists in Russia,
Germany, France, England, South American, Central America and the USA.
During these meetings, she saw what these scientists were working on
and it seemed to overthrow the current laws of biology, chemistry and
physics. Their theories and experiments also compounded into a new
science, a new view of the world.
years she immersed herself in quantum physics and pored through
hundreds of scientific papers to decoding what was often impenetrable
work. In many cases she had to pester the scientists to explain aspects
of physics in order to check facts and interpretations. Lynne concludes
that her work paints a picture of an interconnected universe and a new
scientific theory which makes sense of parapsychological and
'supernatural' phenomena. She lives in London.

and Politics in 2012:
You Can Help Create the New World
Is there any
evidence of hope for the future amidst all the escalating crises in the
world today? Right in the midst of all this upheaval, the seeds
of a new world are growing at this very moment in every
field - if you
know where--and more importantly how--to look. By 2012 socially
responsible, environmentally sustainable businesses that honor a
"triple bottom line" (people, planet, profit) will have
a huge market
share. By 2012 transpartisan, multi-stakeholder dialogues that
find higher common ground will be the norm for transforming political
conflicts. Join two pioneers and practical visionaries
been on the leading edge of social change for over 30 years, and get an
energy tune-up. Learn how to attune your vibrational frequency to
the quantum field of light and Spirit energizing this new world.
You'll learn how to engage all your chakras, to
strengthen your higher
purpose and creative will, develop practical strategies, and attract
resources and heartful friends and co-workers. Seminar will include
guided meditation and experiential exercises for becoming a practical
visionary and overcoming barriers to success.

Pre-conference Intensives at Awakened World 2008
October 1, 2008
10am - 4pm (with
Gay Luce and Deborah Jones
Gates Mystery School
The Spiritual Practices and Healing Arts of Ancient and Modern Mystery
We are living in the most auspicious of times, when it's absolutely
possible to turn the energy of this planet upside down -- not the 2012
predictions of pole reversals, but rather a new prediction of living
from the inside out, awake, vital and consciously co-creating.
Living this way requires courage and honesty and deep compassion.
Knowing that our leadership and the state of world affairs are outward
manifestations of our collective inner state of awareness, dare we
condemn them. Instead of condemning, we must learn from these
things, using them as reflection points for what inside each of us is
being called forward for transforming. Rather than focusing "out
there", we must call our attention to this moment -- to the Presence
that lives and breaths and acts and thinks in and through each of
us. That Presence is not separate from our body and this world,
and yet it is not bound by it. Initiates of the ancient wisdom
schools came to know these things through their training which enabled
them to demonstrate specific levels of mastery. In this full day
intensive, you will experience the fundamentals of these wisdom
schools. You will work with the powerful resources of the
physical and energetic bodies. Through exercises and practices
you will understand how to use the emotional body, once undefined and
detached from your story about it, as a source of pure energy.
You will feel the expansiveness of the heart and know the spiritual
interconnectedness of all things. You will learn and practice the
healing arts. Today, our World calls for fully integrated leaders
who possess a profound understanding of such “mysteries” and can
demonstrate similar levels of energetic and spiritual strength.
We are holding the rudder of this existence in our hands.
