It is becoming increasingly clear that our planet and species have gone through major changes. From the look of things, we have not learned much. But now as we sit once again on the brink of major change, it is time to open our eyes and learn from what has gone before. We must uncover our true history in order to create a conscious evolution. We must seek knowledge from which we are enabled in creating something unique and possibly grand.
Graham Hancock brings us the requisite knowledge and insight. He is a master researcher of ancient mysteries, stone monuments or megaliths, ancient myths and astronomical/astrological data from the past. One of the main themes running through many of his books is the possible global connection with a 'mother culture' from which he believes all ancient historical civilizations sprang.
At the 2013:DAY ONE Prophets Conference in Glastonbury Graham will take us on an exciting journey of discovery through his presentation of:
Elves, Aliens, Angels and Ayahuasca:
Parallel Realms and the Mysteries of the Vine of the Dead.
Judging from the abundant evidence of ancient cave art from all parts of the world, encounters with aliens and UFO’s are nothing new. Humanity has been visited, taught and nurtured by non-terrestrial beings for at least 35,000 years, construing them according to different cultural frameworks as “spirits”, “elves” or “fairies”, “angels” or even “demons”, and most recently as “aliens”. The same beings and vehicles depicted in the cave art also occur in the much more recent art of surviving shamanistic peoples still living today in remote regions such as the Kalahari and the Amazon jungle. Even more mysteriously, similar experiences and imagery are reported by Western lab volunteers, placed experimentally under the influence of hallucinogens such as DMT, psilocybin, mescaline and LSD. The growing popularity in the West of the Amazonian visionary brew Ayahuasaca (where the active ingredient is DMT) has opened up these experiences of parallel realms and their inhabitants to an ever-growing constituency of North Americans and Europeans. The common factor, which is also fundamental to all forms of shamanism, appears to be altered states of consciousness and, crucially, this does not suggest that these experiences are in any way “unreal”. On the contrary the evidence supports the hypothesis that in deeply altered states of consciousness the receiver wavelength of the brain is altered to allow us to tune into and interact with beings from other levels and dimensions of reality. These beings, Hancock argues, are the ancient teachers of mankind. Though much of modern civilization is in a state of rigid denial the fact is that they are still very much in contact with us today. These contacts, and how we as a society react to them – are as fundamental to the future of our species now as they were 35,000 years ago.
