Described as a "Masterclass to Tap Your Extraordinary Potential",
the Living The Field conference was organized by Lynne McTaggart,
author of The Field*, and held at the Paragon Hotel, London,
the weekend of April 5th and 6th. I felt privileged to be invited to
give introductory workshops in remote viewing. The line-up for the weekend
was impressive: Rupert Sheldrake, Lynne McTaggart, Fritz-Albert Popp,
Larry Dossey, Jeffrey Mishlove, Gary Schwartz, Walter Dibble, Roger
Nelson, and Erlendur Haraldsonn.
Lynne McTaggart, in her book The Field has tied together separate,
but intriguingly similar, areas of research, being carried out independently,
in the areas of physics (zero point energy), psychology (morphic resonance),
and parapsychology (intuition, remote viewing, group consciousness).
Individuals, experiencing and practicing intuitive functioning, she
claims, are living and operating in The Field.
The conference was launched with Lynne McTaggart talking about
how knowledge of the Field could cause a revolution in the ways that
we think about physics, psychology, and human consciousness. Her talk,
Living The Field, touched on many ways that we experience Living in
the Field. If any of you have read any of Joel Barker's writings on
Paradigms, you will understand her comments on having to rethink how
we view intuition and consciousness and the mechanisms for how these
work. Lynne is definitely a "paradign pioneer."
We all emit photons, or units of light, and according to Dr.
Fritz-Albert Popp. who talked next. we are all "Being of Light.".
And this biophoton field can be measured scientifically. Dr. Popp related
his research and experiences to the audience.
After a coffee break, Dr. Larry Dossey, brought the audience
up to date on research that has studied the Power of Prayer. His photo
documentary, on prayer around the world, brought lumps to throats and
tears to the eyes. It was inspiring.
After lunch, Jeffrey Mishlove, gave another inspiring presentation,
The Zero Point Perceiver, where he talked about individuals who use
and manifest the Field in their lives. Giving examples, he pointed out
the many ways that the Field can be manifested.
Following, a demonstration was given by Dr. Fabio Petrossi od
Trieste, Italy, of a machine that enhances the bodies ability to utilize
During the remainder of the afternoon, conference participants
divided into four groups to attend workshops in remote viewing (Angela
T. Smith), animal communication (Amelia Kinkade), distant healing (Richard
Lawrence), and the power of the group (Chrissie and Gary Blaze).
I gave two 1-hour workshops, back to back, which was just enought
time to give a general introduction and to have the participants practice
a simple group demonstration of remote viewing. There is a huge interest
in remote viewing in the UK and 200 participants attended each class!
Saturday closed with a group meditation.
On Sunday, the morning sessions were started with a wonderful
presentation by Dr. Ruper Sheldrake ,talking about The Secret Life of
Animals, and also how we can detect the phenomenon of being stared at.
He related scientific studies that conventional science is now having
to take notice of. He is a great speaker with a very droll sense of
humor! His hypothesis is that being aware of being stared at was
developed in humans as an evolutionary instinct to avoid predatory animals.
Rupert Sheldrake was followed by Dr. Gary Schwartz, from the
University of Arizona, who gave a report on the Afterlife Experiments
and the Biofield, giving scientific results from studies that sugest
that our Field does not dissipate at death but continues on in a lucid
and present form.
After morning coffee, Dr. Walter Dibble reported on experiments
that found that the biofield of humans can be stored in devices that
can protect and energize areas in which we work and live. In their lab,
"black boxes" were developed that could store Field energy.
Intuitive work carried out in such areas was enhanced.
In the early afternoon, Dr. Roger Nelson, formerly of Princeton
University, and now operating the EGG Project, gave a talk, Telegram
from Gaia, on the power and effects of group consciousness. Roger, and
his colleagues around the world, operate small random devices called
REGs, that register fluctuations in group consciousness in response
to major world events.
The final talk of the conference was by Dr. Erlendur Haraldsson
talking on the concept of reincarnation and its connection to the Field.
Dr. Haraldsson is an Icelandic scientist with an impressive background
in consciousness research.
Sunday closed with the four workshops being run again, two 1-hur
workshops, so that all the participants could attend. Again, each remote
viewing workshop attracted around 200 participants. It was very gratifying
to see this type of response from the public.
The conference was closed with a group meditation and the sending
of distant healing.
Another Field conference is planned for the Fall and there is
talk of bringing the Field Conference to the States.
