The Conscious Film Festival is Friday through Sunday, February 10th to 12th, and will feature a preview screening of The Celestine Prophecy, a new movie based on James Redfield’s best-selling book. The screening is followed by a workshop with Redfield and his wife Salle.
Also, Revoloution, a film about a gentle man in a fighter’s body, who transforms from a violent, extreme stutterer to a great, powerful communicator, will be featured.
Highlights of this year’s expo include a performance by Reverend Michael Beckwith and the Agape Choir, which sings “soulful, spirit music,” according to expo organizers.
Anti-war mom Cindy Sheehan, whose 24-year-old son Casey was killed in the Iraq War, and who recently made national headlines when she was arrested at President Bush’s recent State of the Union address simply for wearing a T-shirt that stated the number of U.S. soldiers killed in Iraq, is scheduled to be a speaker on Saturday’s “Spiritually Progressive Panel.”
Dr. Nick Begich will give a talk on the “far-reaching potential” of the inventions by Nikola Tesla and their influence on today’s weather, according to expo organizers.
A discussion about the peace movement, with high profile Code Pink peace activists/co-founders Medea Benjamin and Jodie Evans, will take place Saturday afternoon at a reception.
Richard Hoagland, former NASA consultant and science advisor to Walter Cronkite and CBS News will present a “virtual, hyperdimensional trip to Mars and beyond,” organizers say.
Also on hand will be natural healer and bio-energy advocate Dr. William Eidelman, who plans to speak on the healing properties of electromagnetic devices and the value of nutritional medicine.
Another featured speaker will be Robert Silverstone, founder of the GROW principle. GROW is an acronym for “gratitude, release, openness and willingness.” Silverstone uses the power of words and the focus of the present moment to bring about growth, transformation and change in small manageable pieces, according to Conscious Life Expo organizers.
Author Dick Sutphen will discuss the concept of past lives and loves; publisher Michael Langevin will discuss ancient world insights; and Stephen Lewis will discuss quantum healing.
