9th – Jens Rohrbeck – Introduction to the work: ‘The light of truth- the Grail Message’

In the book: ‘The light of truth – The Grail Message’ Abd-Ru-Shin mediates the knowledge of the structure of creation, and it’s laws. On this basis it provides clear and comprehensive answers to the most important questions of life: Where do I come from? Who am I? Where am I going?
Gradually an all encompassing picture of the entire creation unfolds, and he recognises the connections of cause and effect in world events in the past, present and future.
This talk gives a broad overview of the Grail Message and will introduce a few key concepts from the Grail Messages.

25th – Gordon Field – Talking to trees

In 2009 I walked into an ancient wood in Britanny and had what can only be described as an out of body experience. Since then I have been able to communicate with trees through dowsing, insights and now visions. They have taken me on an incredible journey. It started with building up trust in each other, and now they are revealing knowledge from our past that can transform our future.
