DIRECTIONS to The Anomaly Archives

It’s a little tricky to find the first time, so here are the directions:

If you’re heading northwest on Research/183 from I-35, Mopac or 360, exit 183 at the Oak Knoll exit, pass through the light at Oak Knoll, and stay on the access road heading north. The next side street off the 183 access road will be Technology Blvd; do not turn on Technology. Immediately after you pass Technology, there will be a driveway on your right (the only one in that area) — Exit into that driveway. There will be a sign overhead for “Forest Plaza.” After you pull in, you’ll have no choice but to go to the left into Forest Plaza. Our building is the back left building within the complex — Suite 302. If you’re heading south on Research/183, you also exit at Oak Knoll, but take the u-turn just before you get to Oak Knoll, get over the right on the northbound access road, and prepare to make the right immediately after Technology Blvd. as in the directions above.

Questions to be explored will include:

  • What is the relationship between lucid dreaming and out-of-body experience (OBE)?
  • Do the experiences overlap in any way, and how are they different?
  • How might a conceptual framework of consciousness explain what is happening during OBE’s, lucid dreams, and other psychic experiences?
  • What do lucid dreaming and out-of-body experience reveal about the nature of consciousness and the nature of reality?
  • Can most people learn to explore these states?  If so, how?
  • Are there any potential dangers in exploring lucid dreams and OBE’s?  What type of precautions should be taken?
  • What are the potential benefits of lucid dreaming and OBE for the individual, society, and humanity?

She has given numerous workshops on the I Ching, chaos theory, synchronicity, and dreams in the United States and Europe.

Walter is author of the Touching God’s TOE series of books. She also authored an accompanying handbook called Dream Mail designed for contemplating the deeper structure of dreams. It discusses the fractal messages that are carried in the symbolism of dreams and how to interpret dreams for daily life.

Photo of Robert Price, PhDRobert Price (moderator) is a clinical psychologist with strong research and personal interests in sleep and dreaming, lucid dreaming, meditation, altered states of consciousness, human bioenergies, and the nature of reality. He believes that personal and scientific exploration of these states can greatly expand our understanding of the potential of the human mind.

While a graduate student at the University of Texas in Austin, Dr. Price managed the sleep laboratory.  During that time, he conducted sleep lab studies of REM sleep auditory biofeedback, the narrative structure of dreams, lucid dreaming, eye movement signaling techniques, and frequent nightmare experience. Price has published several articles on these subjects, including a chapter on lucid dream induction, and has presented his research at scientific conferences.  This intensive study of lucid dreaming triggered a number of extremely vivid lucid dreams that had a profound impact on Price’s view of human consciousness, dreaming, and OBE. <More…>

Two Amazing Free Events Tonight: Color, Consciousness, Healing and Clairvoyants in Law Enforcement

Two very interesting events are happening tonight that we thought followers of the Anomaly Archives might want to attend:

 Color, Consciousness, and Healing with Leanne Venier

LeanneVenier_thumbThe Healing Effects of Color, Light Frequencies, and Art
Presented by Leanne Venier, BSME, MSOM
Co-hosted by INACS & IONS Austin
Tuesday, January 15, 2013, 6:30 p.m.
Austin Center for Spiritual Living
5555 N Lamar Blvd, Bldg D #115
Free and open to the public

Award-winning artist, scientist, and color therapist Leanne Venier will discuss the healing effects of color, light frequencies, and art and how these relate to elevated consciousness. The talk will include:

  • How our bodies absorb and use color and light frequencies;
  • Latest scientific research and current medical applications for treating cancer and other illnesses using color and light;
  • New studies and technology that support healing of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, autism, and other diseases and disorders;
  • The science behind the healing effects of certain types of artwork;
  • Why we need all the color frequencies found naturally in sunlight for optimum health;
  • What are biophotons and why they are so important to optimal health and wellbeing;
  • How color and consciousness are connected;
  • Color attributes and how we can use them every day to prevent and heal illness. (Samples of Venier’s artwork will be on display for experiential purposes.)

 

“I’ve always been interested in how various colors are tied into our psyche and, more importantly, how they affect us on the physical and emotional levels,” says Venier. “We are, in fact, so influenced by color that by simply noticing which colors we’re drawn to at any given time, we can gain insight into where and how we need to bring balance back into our lives.”

Leanne Venier was a mechanical engineer designing submarines until a lifelong passion for healing and knowledge about consciousness drew her to the healing arts. This journey took her to Italy for seven years and back to the United States for advanced training as an acupuncturist and shiatsu practitioner. Six years ago, Venier started painting and left her healing practice to begin working as a professional artist. It is from this diverse background that Venier will present data gathered from 70 years of scientific research into the healing effects of color, light frequencies, and art.

Venier has exhibited her artwork and lectured at major medical centers on the healing effects of color and light frequencies and their role in medicine. She has been interviewed on Austin’s KUT and KOOP radio stations as well as WOAI-TV’s San Antonio Living Show (above) in regard to her artwork and its role in using color to heal. She has also served as a color healing consultant for the Austin State Hospital and conducted workshops on the healing effects of color for UT Medicine’s Cancer Therapy & Research Center in San Antonio.

11/27/12: Consciousness and Society

 

Exploring the Evolutionary Transformation of Authority from Patriarchy to Individualism
Presented by Mark Sebesta, MSCE, PE
Tuesday, November 27, 2012, 6:30 p.m.
Austin Center for Spiritual Living
5555 N. Lamar Blvd., Ste. D-115 (map)
Free and open to the public

We will look at how an individual’s personality is influenced during childhood by his caregivers, and ultimately by our patriarchal society through identification, modeling, and shame. The patriarchal structure itself will be then be examined along with specific modes of influence in our society including politics, monetary policy, war, and media. We will look at the specific ways that are being used throughout the world to claim personal authority from the patriarchy, and transform ourselves and our society, in this period of evolutionary change.

The meeting will consist of Sebesta’s lecture interspersed with questions and comments from the audience. This topic is timely with society in turmoil and many of us looking for answers. The learned in this area espouse that a heightening of “consciousness awareness” and love is the answer.

The presentation will offer specific solutions including a shift toward matriarchy at the social level,  cultivation of conscious awareness and inner authority, building a support system, using one’s talents in cooparation with others, and focusing on sustainability.

Mark Sebesta grew up in Denver, Colorado, and attended the University of Colorado in Boulder,  where he received a BS and MS in Civil Engineering.  In 1993, he moved to The Woodlands, Texas, where he was introduced to the work of Carl Jung at the Jung Center in Houston.  He then moved to Austin in 1999 and served as president of the Jung Society of Austin for four years.  He has been a practicing engineer for 28 years. In 2003, he became interested in politics in the run up to the Iraq war and is currently exploring the connection between politics and consciousness.  Sebesta is also a petition signer and volunteer for Architects and Engineers for 911 Truth.

Summer Flying Saucer Cinema Series – Quatermass & The Pit

SUMMER FLYING-SAUCER CINEMA SERIES

NEXT EVENT DATE: Saturday June 12th

Begins Memorial Weekend / Saturday Night May 29th

(“Rain Day” Sunday the 30th)

This month we are launching an all new series of events:

SUMMER FLYING SAUCER CINEMA SERIES

This new monthly event will be a FREE showing of lesser known “Flying Saucer Films” with a focus on those that have important points to be made regarding the nature of paranormal, UFO and other anomalous phenomena, as well as society’s cultural reactions to UFO related phenomena.

UFO related phenomena and the Modern Wave of Flying Saucer sightings in the United States have had a lasting effect upon American Popular Culture. For that reason we feel it fitting to host this new event series at the South Austin Popular Culture Center (frmly the South Austin Museum of Popular Culture).

Beginning with … Quatermass & the Pit, aka Five Million Years to Earth!

Go HERE for links to info about the event.

After-Dark Saucer Culture Film-Fest

The ufo phenomenon exists in a synergistic cybernetic interface with humanity. Whatever the true nature of UFOs, they interact with us within several different milieus, all of which are influenced by the media and culture. This media and culture in turn feeds back into the phenonomenon in a continuous cycle.If the fantastic fictions of our television and print media can feedback upon and influence our images and ideas of the unknown then we will continue to have a harder and harder time of sorting the wheat from the chaff of non-human intelligences communicating through the ufo encounter.

Therefore it is very important that we look at some of the various ways the subject of UFOs and Aliens have been handled by the film and television industries. Each night’s selection of films delves into these issues areas especially as they relate to that day’s particular event theme.

Five Million Years To Earth (1967)
aka Quatermass & The Pit

By Nigel Kneale

“Was the Devil really a Martian? Could our predatory nature be the result of a eugenics experiment performed on our ancestors by aliens millions of years ago? These are the questions raised after an ancient spaceship is unearthed in the London Underground, and Professor Quatermass must answer them before the world is torn apart in a Martian race war. Based on the popular BBC sci-fi t.v. series.”

    Quatermass & the Pit

    Prince of Darkness (1987)

    Carpenter’s script assembles elements of his earlier films in a kind of survey; especially Precinct 13’s siege setting and hordes from out of the demimonde, and The Thing’s shapeless, body-claiming alien force. The writing is good, littered with funny lines and highly imaginative contemporary twists on the tale’s origins in the works of Nigel Kneale, to whom Carpenter pays nod-wink homage by billing the screenplay as the work of “Martin Quatermass”.

    Previously, we heard a cryptozoologist’s view of Outbreak! The Encyclopedia of Extraordinary Social Behavior. Now we get the UFOlogical viewpoint from Nick Redfern, who calls the book “quite possibly the most important contribution to the world of Forteana (which, of course, encompasses UFOs…) in a very long time.” The book, notes Redfern, shows “how we as a species, and as groups, collectively react to unusual phenomena and stressful situations (and how we may be responsible for their creation and interpretation); how and why – at times – we respond in a totally over-the-top, hysterical fashion; how such behavior can totally affect and manipulate minds of a normally rational nature; and, as a result, how we inadvertently provoke extraordinary situations, tales, rumors, legends and much more…”

    If you have a dog, you know how remarkably human they can be. How to rationally explain this? A new book “describing the original and unusual research pursuits of award-winning French scientist Suzel Fuzeau-Braesch presents rigorous proof that man and animals — specifically pedigreed pups and cloned cows — are behaviorally impacted by where the major planets turn up in their astrological birth charts.” A detailed presentation of the findings presented in the new book entitled Astrology Off The Beaten Track — A Scientific Study of Planets and Personality.

    The League of Western Fortean Intermediatists:

    www.ForteansWest.com

    A friend of mine, Skylaire Alfvegren, recently began her own regional strange phenomena oriented organization. More than just another ghost hunting, UFO data collecting, or bigfoot tracking group, my friend has created a unique collective of anomalous informationalists: The League of Fortean Intermediatists, aka LOWFI and Forteans West.

    I’m proud to be her easternmost representative, serving as Texas Bureau Chief, and blogging on all things anomalous and Fortean happening in and around the State. One of my most recent blogs archives my roundup of Texas strangeness that I originally published when I was editor of the Austin Para Times newspaper:

    AusTex Anomalous Para Guide to Texas

    AusTex Anomalous Guide to Para Texas pg 6 AusTex Anomalous Guide to Para Texas

    • Review: C.B. Scott Jones Austin Lecture
    In November the Austin community was treated to an intimate lecture by the enigmatic paranormal, ufo, mind/science personage, C. B. “Scott” Jones. Scott Jones led the audience through a non-linear journey encompassing several of the anomalous highlights of his life.

    https://i1.wp.com/www.elfis.org/images/ani/Felix.gif
    This lifetime of mysterious experiences included a possible multiple child alien-abduction-like encounter with a cartoon Felix the Cat (image right) come-to-life off a film projector screen and an early age brush with death as a baby that was later revealed to Scott by two independent psychics to have been his earliest possible contact with Alien Others. This early age contact was seemingly confirmed when Scott Jones underwent regressive hypnosis sessions with UFO researchers Dr. Leo Sprinkle and Dr. Richard Haines which led to “memories” of  being healed by an Alien Other and an Out of Body Experience, recall of which ends with him as a baby, floating out in space above the earth and about to enter a UFO.

    Scott continued recounting his extraordinary life-experiences, including his work investigating the paranormal for Senator Claiborne Pell and seeking UFO disclosure for Laurence Rockefeller. He detailed his psychic intuitive hunt for missile sites during his service as Attaché in India. He spoke of his work tasking psychic Remote Viewers for military, intelligence and political clients in Washington and even gave details of his strange encounter with the FBI in which his friend Michael Drosnin (author of The Bible Code) was seemingly targeted with what they both believe to be some sort of electronic mind-control device which temporarily incapacitated Mr. Drosnin. It was likely this encounter and their other research that led to this alleged statement addressing Dr. John Gibbons (science advisor of President Bill Clinton) regarding the Rockefeller UFO Initiative:

    “…I urge you to take another look in the ‘UFO Matrix of Belief’ that I provided you last year. My mention of mind-control technology at the February 4 meeting was quite deliberate. Please be careful about this. There are reasons to believe that some government group has interwoven research about this technology with alleged UFO phenomena. If that is correct, you can expect to run into early resistance when inquiring about UFOs, not because of the UFO subject, but because that has been used to cloak research and applications of mind-control activity.”

    – Dr. C.B. Scott Jones

    After the official lecture Scott and many audience members migrated to the BookPeople store a few blocks away and continued the discussions about UFOs and much much more.
    We look forward to hearing more from C. B. Scott Jones in the coming years.
