PATRICK MACMANAWAY- Megaliths, Dragons and Agriculture, Ancient and Modern

Research has shown a 300% yield increase in maize after a pre-germination period in a pyramid – a 400% increase in rice germination was observed in a contemporary on-farm stone circle. Balancing dragon-line energies and blessing fields can show a 10-45% yield increase with healthier and more pest and disease-resistant crops, and increased fertility and health in animals. Patrick will present insights and results of subtle-energy work in agriculture from the UK, US and Australia.

Dr Patrick MacManaway is a second-generation practitioner of healing arts and geomancy with an international teaching and consulting practice. Past-President of the British Society of Dowsers, he holds a degree in Medicine from the University of Edinburgh, and is the author of “Energy Dowsing for Health”, Cultivating the Light Body” and “The Keys to Grace”. www.patrickmacmanaway.com

RICHARD HEATH - Sacred Number and the Lords of Time
The John Michell Memorial Lecture - hosted by Christine Rhone

Richard's presentation will show how astronomy and land surveying became possible to late stone age society through the simple manipulation of numbers held as lengths. The idea of a previous super-civilisation, predating the megalithic, becomes unnecessary if evidence from the Megalithic can be re-interpreted - as able to achieve an accurate geocentric astronomy and model of the earth, without requiring modern arithmetic or equipment. By recovering the achievements of the megalith builders, the projection of unproven ideas (such as savage rituals) onto Stonehenge and other such sites can be seen to be an uncreative fiction. His latest book can help relearn megalithic numerology and de-project savages, in order to get to the raison d'etre of megalithic societies.

Richard Heath has degrees in systems science and is the author of Matrix of Creation, Sacred Number and the Origins of Civilization, and Precessional Time and the Evolution of Consciousness. He is Robin Heath's brother and an old friend and collaborater with John Michell, who he travelled to Lundy Island with some years ago as part of their research. He lives in Perthshire, Scotland. www.richardheath.info

JIM VIEIRA (Live from the U.S.) - Megaliths, Stonework, and Giants from Ancient New England

A stonemason by trade, Jim Vieira has studied indigenous American oral history and historical texts in an attempt to better understand humanities past. In this lecture he will focus on the megaliths, stonework and ancient cultures of New England, and examine the skeletal remains found in Northeast America, that led him into another area of research - giants. Jim will also explore the cover-up that has suppressed the origins of the megaliths, and the 'tall ones' who may have been involved in their construction. Jim is also presenting on Sunday night. (Both lectures will be Live via Skype from America.)

Jim Vieira is a stonemason, writer, researcher and member of the New England Antiquities Research Association. He has studied the mysteries of Ancient America for over 20 years and is a frequent contributor to the Shelburne Falls Independent and Ancient American Magazine, and he Jim Vieira has presented at the prestigious TEDX Conference and was a guest on Coast to Coast with George Noory. His research into stonework, megalithic sites and mounds led him to the Megalithomania Conference in Connecticut where he met Hugh Newman and Ross Hamilton, which led Jim to the mystery of giants when he uncovered an account of a giant skeleton being unearthed in the neighboring town of Deerfield. He is currently writing a book with fellow researcher Hugh Newman, and is the star of History Channel's 'Search for the Lost Giants'.

CHRIS H. HARDY Ph.D - The Sacred Network: Leys, Megaliths and the French Connection

First marked by the standing stones of our megalithic ancestors, the world’s sacred sites are not only places of spiritual energy but also hubs of cosmic energy and earthly energy. Generation upon generation has recognized the power of these sites, with the result that each dominant culture builds their religious structures on the same spots. Chris Hardy shows how the world’s sacred sites coincide with the intersections of energetic waves from the earth’s geomagnetic field and how–via their megaliths, temples, and steeples–these sites act as antennae for the energies of the cosmos. Delving deeply in to Paris’s sacred network, she also explores the intricate geometrical patterns created by the alignments of churches and monuments, such as pentagrams and Stars of David.

Cognitive and systems scientist, PhD in psychological anthropology and ex-researcher at Princeton’s Psychophysical Research Laboratories, Chris H. Hardy has spent the last two decades investigating nonlocal consciousness and thought-provoking mind potentials. She is author of more than fifty papers and about fifteen books on these subjects. Chris H. Hardy spends a lot of time traveling and exploring various knowledge systems and cultures, maintaining a keen interest in eastern religions, shamanism, and esoterica. She presents regularly at various international conferences, and is a member of several scientific societies based in the US, exploring system theory, chaos theory, parapsychology, and consciousness studies. www.chris-h-hardy-dna-of-the-gods.blogspot.fr/

PETER KNIGHT - Stolen Images: Ancient Sites, Pagan Symbolism and Christianity

In this lecture Peter shows how the Church adopted and assimilated pre-Christian myths and symbols for its own use, to help promote its own agenda. Most Christian icons can be traced back to an older origin, and many churches were also sited on ancient holy places. The Church also took over existing Pagan festivals and turned them into saint's days. This fascinating talk links Egyptian, Norse, Greek, Celtic and other cultures to Christianity.

Peter Knight is the author of several books about sacred sites, dowsing and sacred landscapes, and is an international speaker, dowser, shamanic facilitator, and sacred sites guide. His books delve into the hidden aspects of sites, as he tries to unravel their meanings in a ‘holistic’ approach. He also advocates how sacred sites can be accessed today to procur earth healing and personal transformation. www.stoneseeker.net

HUGH NEWMAN - Forgotten Stones: Secrets of the Megalithic Quarries

Is there an ancient tradition of 'the birthplace of the temple', or the quarry where the stones that make up megalithic temples came from? Are megalithic quarries acrtually 'sacred sites'? Hugh has investigated several of these quarries and realised the megalith builders may have passed down a very ancient tradition, through multiple generations, that was part of a ritual technique that was seen to bring the stones to ‘life’ and imbue them with ‘power’, as well as leaving clues to future generations as to how they worked, quarried and moved these stones. Modern Freemasons and tribal societies still have access to this knowledge, but now in a more ritualized form. As we’ll see as we survey these sites worldwide, it quickly appears that the ancients deliberately left ‘signatures’, incorporating abstract style, technique, relief carvings, and even hidden geometry, metrology, geodesy and number systems. These covert practices lasted for thousands of years and may give a clue into their mindset and spiritual purpose. Hugh is also presenting on Sunday night.

Hugh Newman is an author, conference organiser, world explorer, tour host, and Megalithomaniac. As well as organising the Megalithomania conferences, he has spoken at events in the UK, Malta, France, Peru, Egypt, Bosnia and North America. He has appeared on BBC TV, Sky Channel 200, Bosnian TV and the History Channel in the last four seasons of 'Ancient Aliens', and recently in 'Search for the Lost Giants'. He is currently writing a book about the Giants with Jim Vieira, and has published four articles about the secrets of the megalithic quarries online. www.hughnewman.co.uk
