14th September 2021. ‘Afterlives: Firsthand Accounts of Twenty Notable People’ by Joanne Helfrich. 7.30pm. £5.
Every individual is born with innate intent — the soul’s design for its most fulfilling expression. In this presentation — Path, Process & The Role of Soul Intent — the author will share her unlikely journey towards discovering her own intent and channelling abilities, and the many ways in which intent played a role in creating her latest book, Afterlives: Firsthand Accounts of Twenty Notable People. As her intent is to help people connect with their own, she will provide practical means to do so, including an intent typology and clues to look for in childhood. In sharing her own path, she will encourage others towards theirs. She will also share previews from the book, her stunning discovery of the authors’ strong desire to come through, and how the politics of ‘who made the cut’ were sorted out. Part 2 will be presented 30th November 2021.
21st September 2021. ‘Making Space and Time for Survival’ by Professor Bernard Carr. 7.30pm. £5

Dr Donna Thomas discusses the findings from a series of research studies that are exploring anomalous experiences and the nature of self (Consciousness) with children. Children share experiences such as talking with deceased relatives, telepathy, OBE’s and premonitions. The talk considers how ‘adults-in-authority’ can catalyse suffering for children who experience self, others and the world in these ways.
26th October 2021. Lance Butler in Conversation with Alexander McCall Smith. 7.30pm. £5.

A free-format conversation between Lance and Charles Eisenstein who is a popular author and speaker. Discussion will likely revolve around Charles’s latest works and his thoughts on topical issues such as consciousness, science and philosophy.
9th November 2021. Communicating with the Extraterrestrial Intelligence (ETI) behind Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) by Dr Eamonn Ansbro. 7.30pm. £5.
Eamonn Ansbro argues for the hypothesis that UAP may be exogenous probes of an Extra Terrestrial Intelligence. The opportunity therefore arises for developing communications protocols and methodologies for first contact.
16th November 2021. ‘Extraordinary Evidence for an Extraordinary Claim: The SoulPhone Experiements’ by Dr Gary Schwartz. 7.30pm. £5.
Drawing on exemplary evidence from advanced spirit technology research,
this presentation makes the case that contemporary SoulPhone findings provide the ‘tipping point’ evidence for survival of consciousness after physical death.
29th June 2021. ‘The Hidden Universe: Introducing the Egregorials’ by Anthony Peake. 7.30pm. £5.
In this talk, Anthony Peake will discuss his ‘egregorial hypothesis’, as detailed in his last book, The Hidden Universe: An Investigation into Non-Human Intelligences (Watkins, 2019).
30th November 2021. ‘Afterlives: The Authors’ Accounts’ by Joanne Helfrich. 7.30pm. £5.
In this presentation — The Authors’ Accounts — the author will share some of the beautiful passages written by the nonphysical authors who graced her book, Afterlives: Firsthand Accounts of Notable People. These will provide accounts of immediate experiences after death, descriptions of their afterlife environments, and how their nonphysical lives compare with their physical ones. More than one author wants to set the record straight how they have evolved since becoming nonphysical! Joanne will also share common themes that occur in the authors’ accounts, such as ‘we go as we are,’ perceptions of God existing in some form, and advice and commentary on current mass events.
