FULL MOON IS NOW

AFTERNOON NAP PROTOCOL:

Check out this Circadian Rhythm cycle. If possible, attempt an afternoon nap today between 1.30-3.30pm. Afternoon naps are a great way to induce lucidity, as we are often more aware as we slip into hypnagogic reverie. 

Find somewhere comfortable to lie down where you can be undisturbed and perhaps put on some relaxing music or use one of the audio sleep meditations track posted here previously. Lose yourself in a pleasant memory and follow it into a snooze.

Write down your impressions and reflections, however vague and get this dialogue between your conscious and unconscious going.

1462983035_circadian-rhythm-clock-600x528.png

TOOLS:

ROSEMARY Tea - 
According to research outlined in Therapeutic Advances in Psychopharmacology, the aroma from rosemary can improve a person's concentration, performance, speed, and accuracy and, to a lesser extent, their mood.

I've found this simple and affordable brew - simply steep a handful of fresh rosemary in boiled water for ten minutes - can have a potent effect on memory and dream recall.

FUMIGATION of Frankincense -
Ancient Sleep Temples in Greece used a fumigation of frankincense in the invocation of the goddess Mnemosyne (personification of memory and remembrance) - a final stage of dream incubation, in which the supplicant was taken to a special dream chamber (abaton) to have a healing dream and make contact with the healer gods. 

Back in 2008, researchers completed a study on the impact of frankincense on depression and anxiety. Pharmacologists at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem said evidence indicates that the aroma of frankincense might help regulate emotions such as anxiety and depression. It improves spatial memory and memory retention.

Many people find that it makes a perfect incense to use during meditation, energy work, or chakra exercises such as opening the third eye.

Are you ready? Today would be a perfect day to forego kwaffee and have an afternoon nap.

If you're not having much luck, I'm going to keep this event active for all the next full moons - 🌕. Just consciously intending to dream can be a very powerful force.

More exercises coming later, but do try to minimise engagement with social media and devices today, spend some time writing down your thoughts, feelings and reflections - putting pen to paper and reimagining yourself as an archetype, what do you need? What do you feel? What recurring patterns can you sense? Draw something from your imagination. Read a real book 📙. Listen to awe inspiring music, go for a long adventure in the countryside, walk in the dark.

Observe the world as a reality filled with symbols and signs, the sea 🌊the 🌕 the ⛰ the 🏙. Reality is encoded with the language of dreaming - symbols, contemplate the layers of meaning in the structures, forms, nature, animals, birds, forces, characters, words and people that surround you.

The Dreaming Voice Box: Micro-Screams and Mini-Exultations

Have you ever had a nightmare in which you scream out and no matter how hard you try, no sound comes out? You can really feel the effort you are putting into that scream and that is because your voice box is actually making the micro-movements of a scream whilst you are asleep. The same applies when you speak words in dreams. Scientists are now decoding what you say in dreams by translating these silent voice box micro-movements into speech.

I had a thought recently about the impact of symbolic imagery on dream content. I have always been drawn to surreal art and strong symbolic imagery in films. I believe that by exposing ourselves to beautiful, awe-inspiring symbolic art and archetypal imagery, we are feeding our minds and souls with just the right kind of dream food that will help us make sense of ourselves, our world and our place within it. As we think better thoughts and dream better dreams, we can become better versions of ourselves.

I meet many people at my dream talks and workshops who have boring dreams, perhaps ones in which they are working all day at the office, or ones in which they are scrolling through Facebook feeds or texting someone.

If you want beautiful dreams, fill your eyes and ears with the most beautiful things.

The Shroomshop: Mushroom Cultivation for Beginners

Mushrooms have been growing wild since prehistoric times. Their therapeutic value has been prized in indigenous cultures, for thousands of years. They play a critical role in medicinal practice and were noted in some of the first books on herbal medicine written thousands of years ago

In the past few decades, mushrooms have become more popular for their therapeutic qualities in the west as a result of an expanding body of scientific research supporting their numerous health benefits.

Come and learn the basics of mushroom cultivation, explore various techniques for growing gourmet and medicinal mushrooms such as Oyster, Reishi, Shiitake and many other strains of mushrooms.

This will be a hands on experience we will cover everything you need to know to get you started.

What will we cover?

What are Mushrooms?
How do Mushrooms grow?
How do you grow Mushrooms at home?
Mushroom Aftercare
How to make and use Spore Prints, Spawn & Spore Syringes
Where to get everything?
Each participant will leave with an inoculated mushroom growing jar, handouts and supporting material.

Darren Springer will lead the workshop. He's a keen mushroom grower and teacher, for the last seven years he has been growing edible mushrooms. He is Horticulture and Food Enterprise worker and tutor for and has translated his home growing experience into a commercial experiment. In this workshop Darren shares his practical tips and experience to help you successfully grow mushrooms at home.

General tickets £30 Earlybird ( before end of July) £20

Psychedelics, Ego Death & The Afterlife

Email: sarahjanes@hotmail.com for location information

20:00 - 22:00

In this talk Darren Springer of Ancient Future, will explore ancient mythologies that connect the human entheogenic experience, the mythical Underworld and the ancient art of navigating the afterlife, and how this all corresponds with the psychedelic experience coined "Ego Death".

He will take you on a historical journey and look at the origins of these practices in ancient Africa, Mesopotamia and Europe and how they have become coded in several mythological entheogenic rites of passages throughout the ancient indigenous world in initiation ceremonies and daily ritual.

In this presentation, Darren will share how these Psychedelics were used in experiencing navigating the afterlife and dance with death, allowing you to live a more purposeful and liberated life.

Darren Springer is a grass-roots researcher and event organiser based in London, the Director of Ancient Future, the Convenor of the Psychedelia Railway Gatherings and curator at Earth Tone Arts. After setting up Ancient Future in 2006, a voluntary organisation, he has continued to develop workshops and projects geared around creative arts, personal-development and ancient spiritual systems in his community.

COUNTDOWN TO #MIND:2019
2 DAYS TO GO
Spotlight on the #DREAMLAB

Our #DREAMLAB is a collaborative project between archive film producer, researcher and consultant - Emily Thomas (Emily Bear) and Sleep and Dream researcher Sarah Janes.

Emily approached me last year about using dreams to create a film. She asked me to send her voice recordings describing my dreams and she would use this as inspiration for sourcing archive footage, I was really into this idea as I always wanted to be a dream film director and I loved the experiments in Japan where researchers hooked participants up to MRI and YouTube - to match dream content. Check it out : https://www.geek.com/…/japanese-scientists-create-dream-re…/

The timing and flow of Emily's film - give it a real dream-like quality. 

We replaced my dream v/o soundtrack with a dream/sleep incubation hypnosis and inspired by the expanding dream tech market, our #DREAMLAB should be a regular dream generator. 

There is space for two people to lie down comfortably and it will be running throughout #MIND : 2019 . You'll find us upstairs in the MelodyVRpenthouse suite with  The Cyberdelic Society.

Both Emily and myself will be around to chat to if you have any questions. 

I'm also taking part in our #ANCIENTFUTURES panel with Lena KorkovelouDarren Le BaronSanae Orchi and Alistair Coombs and will be covering topics around dream and sleep and the importance of these things historically for consciousness, memory and culture. 

I hold regular dream workshops and retreats with Daniel Lee and Awake + Away and have spoken on the subject at The Psychedelic Society, at numerous Funzing talks in London,  #Bristol and #Manchester, at Mantra Party and Noisily Festival of Music and Arts and recently at West Brompton Cemetery for A Curious Invitation's London dreaming event.

THREE DAYS TO GO

COUNTDOWN TO MIND:2019
3 DAYS TO GO!

Spotlight on #STARGATE and #remoteviewing

As part of MIND:2019 we are exploring ideas around remote viewing and the historical application of remote viewing techniques to gather information through non-local, non-physical means. We'll be looking into these potentials from both a quantum physics perspective and a spiritual mediumship angle. Stories of astral travel, reincarnation, telepathy and other psi abilities are common place in Eastern cultures. In China many institutions exist where kids can hone their psychic abilities.

This event consists of two parts: 1) The Remote Viewing Training Workshop and 2) The Remote Viewing Symposium. 
The Remote Viewing Symposium:

1) DIA/CIA remote viewing research STARGATE project with David Luke 

David Luke will talk on the DIA/CIA remote viewing research STARGATE project, a multimillion dollar psychic espionage operation that was run by paraphysicists for 20 years until 1987. As a parapsychologist who trained for several months in the USA, David is personally acquainted with 3 of the major operators of the project, and will speak about STARGATE, other remote viewing research and parapsychology in general.

2) The Reclaiming of Remote Viewing with Beatrice Brown 

I was first taught how to remote view by a wild and wrinkled Australian Aunt, who sat at our kitchen table reading jewellery for all the adults. She looked at ten year old me, and said- I’ve never done this before, but you can have a go on that if you like, while she handed me her wedding ring. I held it, eyes closed, and flew over forests and motorways til I could describe her house, her car, and the journey she would take across a big bridge to the home of her estranged daughter. I could see her daughter sitting by the pool and I could feel that she was sad. We never called it Remote Viewing though. It was, like the Tarot cards I’d been given by our lodger Morgan, just a freaky parlour game. It wasn’t until I was an adult and had begun researching the history of Remote Viewing that I realised that RV, like so many magical practices officially belonged to and had been sewn up by the Men In Suits. In this talk I will compare the culture of women skrying in my family and global/ local communities and the phenomenon of Remote Viewing for intelligence agencies and Psi Ops. 

3) Accessing the Akashic Records using Art, Holotropic Breathwork and Remote Viewing with Carl H Smith 

Is there a relationship between navigating the Akashic records with your breath and remote viewing? Can Art act as a trigger for entering remote viewing states? How can Holotropic Breathwork give rise to Holographic visions? Can we use these techniques in groups to enter the same space? 

4) Creating a Remote Viewing Laboratory with Samantha Treasure

Using a haunted building as a makeshift laboratory, a group of paranormal investigators and out-of-body experiencers conducted a set of preliminary experiments to see whether, in an out-of-body state, they could remotely observe an object in another room. These experiments revealed that similar themes were shared between participants in dreams, out-of-body experiences and apparition sightings, calling into question how the remote viewer should differentiate between target content and non-target content (i.e. content originating from the mind of the remote viewer or others). It also calls into question which state is most conducive to "true" remote viewing practice. Sam will discuss these findings and their implications for remote viewing.

5) The Science of Remote Viewing with Jazz Rasool

What in our biology and psychology makes a system to access other regions of time and space? Is the brain the only component of such a system? Are there aspects of Physics or Meditative techniques that we must harness for safe remote viewing?

6) The ArtSensorium Lab with Cynthia Harrison

The ArtSensorium objective was to investigate the hypothesis that thought images can be transferred from one person to another. Three artists collaborate (between Australia and Spain) to develop a process of transferring images through space in an experiment of art by telepathy 'feeling at a distance’, essentially mind-to-mind contact. It became apparent Cynthia was 'Viewing' in 3 distinct ways, one of which was Remote Viewing, were the mind obtains information from anywhere remote in space time on people, places and things. This session is an exploration of observations and new ways of knowing experienced while gathering and recording remote data via a creative process. The ArtSensorium Lab artists include Cynthia Harrison (Australia), Imma Jimenez (Spain) and Cristina Miranda (Spain/Brazil).

The Remote Viewing Training Workshop: 

1) Jewellery Reading Remote Viewing with Beatrice Brown 

During this session Beatrice will invite attendees to bring a piece of jewellery to share and ‘read’ using one of the oldest methodologies of Remote Viewing. What impressions/ memories/frequencies are stored within your family jewels? 

2) The Art of Remote Viewing with Jazz Rasool

Theories underpinning RV are plentiful but are there specific practices that switch on our RV capacity in accelerated ways? Three techniques are presented to take part in that may run counter to traditional RV techniques.

3) Accessing the Internal Channel with Cynthia Harrison

A technique to locate and activate the fundamental control centre of consciousness located within the brain. One of the main points is the Pineal gland, which contains light sensitive cells like those in the retina, indicating that the pineal can ’see’. It is here that we visualise or see things in our minds eye.

4) The Lucid State of Remote Viewing with Sarah Janes

The lucid state is an ideal one in which to aim for remote viewing targets and develop visioning skills. Using the ancient technique of dream incubation, intentions can be set for targets and locations. Sarah will bring an object in a sealed box and invite participants to use the dream state that evening to peer inside and view the contents. A short dream incubation session will help set this intention and results will be assessed at Saturday's symposium.

Spotlight on #HASTINGS !

If you're thinking of coming for one or both days of the conference from out of town, I think you'll enjoy taking some time out and enjoying the local sights, shops and eateries.

Hastings is a really beautiful town, especially along the seafront and around the Old Town area. 

Unlike Brighton, our beaches are rarely busy (sometimes you can go groyne to groyne all on your own) and they are also clean and lovely for swimming in. There have been a lot of seals spotted in the water recently actually!

There are loads of top notch places to eat in both Hastings and neighbouring St Leonards. 

Plus it's going to be lovely weather so you could grab a snack and sit on the beach which is just two minutes from the venue.

Top recommendations for coffee near the venue:

Wow And Flutter - Mostly a record shop but the coffee comes from Sham City Roasters and is A-Okay! 8 Trinity Street.

Hi-Store / HiFest - Also on Trinity Street.

Hanushka Coffee House - Robertson Street cozy cafe full of books

Best for lunch and snacks:

Trinity Wholefoods - Trinity street. Delicious vegetarian and organic snacks. try the cult 'smafels'.

Bullet Coffee House - Delicious breakfasts and lunches, specialising in vegan and gluten-free options. 

Kassa Coffee - is a stroll along the seafront into St. Leonards but worth it for affordable and satisfying big feed nosh ups of Persian and Afghan specials at lunch time. An absolute St Leonards GEM! 

Goat Ledge - Right on the beach in St. Leonards, delicious fish rolls, coffee and ice cream.

Edge St Leonards - A friendly and cozy place on the seafront in St. Leonards. Loads of tasty things on the menu, homemade cakes and the best staff!

Hastings is also home to the World Crazy Golf Championship and our course is definitely worth a go.

There are loads more - please plonk your suggestions in the comments...

Spotlight on HEALTH AND HARMONY

As well as entire floor dedicated to emerging tech, Virtual Reality experiences and our #DREAMLAB, we recognise that the future is going to change us inwardly.

I heard a radio documentary some years ago, that talked about the first steam train trip and how some excited ladies were so overwhelmed by the speed, sound and sensations that they fainted. 

We are still, more-or-less, those sensitive human beings, and yet now we are living in an increasingly polluted, toxic, noisy, stressful and technological environment. Our perceptions are bombarded with stimuli that can speed us up and make us feel very discombobulated at times. How can we find peace, health and harmony in amidst all of this?

Our speakers : Jayney GoddardDarren Le Baron and Sanae Orchi will tackle these issue.

Jayney Goddard President, The Complementary Medical Association, Founder and Co-Chair, The British Academy for Lifestyle Medicine
www.jayneygoddard.org

Jayney is one of the world’s leading experts in the natural youth and anti-ageing arena and it’s her mission to empower you with all the tips and techniques you need, to look smoking hot AND be happier, healthier, brainier, sexier, stress resilient, leaner, energetic and more joyful than you ever imagined!

Jayney has personally experienced devastating, life-threatening illness, which had her admitted into hospice care and then left her wheelchair-bound for over ten years.

At that time, she also measured a full 20 years older – biologically – than her actual age was. By using the exact approaches she employed to get well then, and still uses and teaches to this day, she not only survived against all the odds and learned to walk again, she has also rewound her own body clock into the bargain!

Her recently published book: Rewind Your Body Clock is one of the best-selling health and lifestyle titles on Amazon.com.

Jayney now measures over 27 years younger than her real age and lives a vibrant and hugely energetic life, travelling the world as a teacher, speaker and author.

Sanae Orchi Sanae Orchi is a Dutch/Moroccan TV presenter, public speaker and teacher of Ancient African Yoga (Smai Tawi). After graduating as an economist it was media that took her attention. For years she presented many tv programs and became a well-known TV personality.

_‘On the surface everybody thought I had it all because I was popular, but deep down I felt empty.’ _

She went through a series of challenging experiences and life questions. Sanae’s journey has led her to studying and sharing both modern and ancient spiritual practices. She is now sharing this knowledge and her experiences in an ‘urban sexy’ way for others, especially the young generation to experience self realisation for themselves.

FOUR DAYS TO GO

COUNTDOWN TO #MIND:2019
4 DAYS TO GO
Spotlight on The Cyberdelic Society and founding members Carl H Smith and Jose Montemayor Alba

Two of my MOST favourite people in the world! Carl and Jose are inspirational educators and visionaries, working with real passion and enthusiasm with the life-enhancing potentials of emerging technologies to improve our future world, expand our individual perspective and aid in the co-creation of a more ecologically-minded and conscious culture.

The Cyberdelic Society has recently had showcases in #Melbourne#Amsterdam#Barcelona#Berlin for Occulture Berlin,  #Prague with Beyond Psychedelics, with The Psychedelic Society at Noisily Festivaland #London, so I am highly delighted to welcome them to my home town of #Hastings
www.cyberdelicsociety.com

Carl H Smith is Director of the Learning Technology Research Centre (LTRC) and Principal Research Fellow at Ravensbourne. His background is in Computer Science and Architecture. He is an academic and developer with over 15 years’ experience conducting R+D into the application of hybrid technologies for perceptual and cognitive transformation. He is currently working on 4 EU projects including the newly funded Horizon 2020 project ‘[WEKIT] Wearable Experience for Knowledge Intensive Training’ which will use the latest in wearable and motion tracking technology to create ‘wearable experience’ – an entirely new form of media. He has also worked on a number of large-scale FP7 and Leonardo Life Long Learning European projects. His research interests include Embodied Cognition, Spatial Literacy, Perceptual Technology and Human Centric Methodologies and Pedagogies. He specialises in using hybrid reality methodologies and visualization techniques to produce augmented spaces for the generation and transformation of learning. His earlier research involved the investigation of these augmented forms of learning from the point of view of their units of construction - to see across the whole range of constituent parts, schemas and key narratives involved in their successful design and development. He has previously worked at the Computing departments at London Metropolitan University, Glasgow and Sheffield University. The Learning Technology Research Centre (LTRC) conducts design research into the application of information and communication technologies to augment, support and transform cognition.

Carl recently gave a back to back Keynote with Ray Kurzweil (Director of Engineering at Google) in Melbourne at Creative Innovation, 2019. And his panel contribution at MIND: is likely to explore the relationship between #Humanism#Transhumanism and #Hyperhumanism (Posthumanism) and what each system of thought can do for #Intelligence Augmentation.

Jose Montemayor Alba is a visual artist, psychonaut and VR programmer. He has developed Virtual Awakening and will discuss near-death experiences; what cutting-edge technology can teach us about being human; and how psychedelics and VR are combining to create ‘Cyberdelic Psychotherapy’.

Virtual and augmented reality are already being used to heal traumas, dementia and body dysmorphia. What lessons can we take from psychedelic therapy to harness these new technologies.

Everything is changing – the content and the audience. In VR experiences, the viewer no longer experiences content, but becomes the medium itself. This is a paradigm shift not only in tech, but also in Art and our ability to share common human experiences.
