Renowned filmmaker Bill Bennett presents a feature length film on intuition in advance of its global rollout in April. Called PGS — Intuition is your Personal Guidance System, the film proposes that intuition is a legitimate functioning system in your body, as legitimate as your circulatory, immune, or central nervous system — it’s just that it works within the realm of your Higher Source and your subtle body.


Filmed over three years in some of the most remote and sacred places on the planet, the film explores intuition from three perspectives: scientific, religious, and spiritual. As Bill tells it: Making the film changed my life. Watching it could change yours. Bill will present the film and answer any questions at the end.



Interaction of Pyramid Structures with Matter and Consciousness

Beverly Rubik, PhD
Harry Jabs, MS
Friday, April 20  7pm

Fee: $20 cash at the door

Beverly Rubik PhDHarry Jabs MS PhysicsLarge stone pyramids from ancient cultures around the world have attracted much wonder and speculation over eons of time. What was their purpose? The dominant view that the Egyptian pyramids are merely elaborate tombs for the pharaohs is seriously lacking. There are many anecdotes about extraordinary effects of pyramids.We will present our own discoveries using small pyramids including remarkable effects on dreams, among other effects.


Beverly Rubik, PhD and Harry Jabs, MS will also discuss the handful of scientific studies on “pyramid power”, such as the restoration of used metal blades to sharpness and offer a scientific explanation. Since such physical effects are not always obtained, we hypothesized that consciousness might interact with pyramids either to block or facilitate the effects. In a controlled laboratory study, we explored the interaction of distant mental intention with an open-faced, wooden pyramidal structure on the germination and growth of beans. Distant intention to grow was applied from a group of over 50 participants in a workshop conducted by Beverly Rubik at a location over 1,000 miles from our laboratory, one month before the scheduled study. Plant growth conditions were controlled. Photographs of the plants were made over time and compared for germination, growth, and leaf size. We measured dry biomass of the plants and calculated the differences between the plant groups. The results show that conscious intent interacts with pyramid effects. A new scientific model for pyramids as psychotronic generators that work with operator intent and cosmic energy will be presented.

Lucid Dreaming As a Path to Personal Growth, Healing and Spiritual Wisdom

Robert Waggoner 
Friday, June 15  7pm

Fee: $20 cash at the door

Robert WaggonerOn the surface, lucid dreaming seems deceptively simple – a paradoxical state in which you know you are dreaming, while you are dreaming. There, you can fly through space, create fire breathing dragons, and cast spells like Harry Potter, all in the safety of your subconscious mind. Historically though, experienced lucid dreamers have used lucid dreaming as an expressway to greater self-realization, spiritual wisdom and access to creativity’s source. The Indian Buddhist yogi, Naropa, suggested that the main technique of dream yoga, lucid dreaming, provided serious students one of the six pathways to enlightenment.


Scientifically validated for thirty years, recent neuroscientists have deemed lucid dreaming a “hybrid state of consciousness” since the dreaming brain and portions of the waking/conscious brain show simultaneous activation. In other words, when you are lucid dreaming, your conscious mind and your subconscious mind appear joined in a shared creative collaboration, or a unique, hybrid state of consciousness.

Now lucid dreamers have begun to explore lucid dreaming’s potential to investigate consciousness, the dream state and the psyche. Already, numerous accounts exist of lucid dreamers using this special state for emotional healing and even physical healing. Moreover, some lucid dreamers feel that they have encountered another layer of the Self and a reservoir of unconscious information; two concepts which Carl Jung theorized, but did not have the tool to validate. Could lucid dreaming serve as a revolutionary tool to provide science with a new understanding of consciousness and the self?

Robert Waggoner is author of the acclaimed book, Lucid Dreaming: Gateway to the Inner Self, and co-author of the award winning book, Lucid Dreaming Plain and Simple. A past President of the International Association for the Study of Dreams (IASD), Robert also co-edits the online magazine, The Lucid Dream Exchange, the only ongoing publication devoted specifically to lucid dreaming. Robert conducts on-line workshops with GlideWing Productions and routinely speaks at colleges and conferences worldwide on the lucid dream experience. Robert has logged more than 1,000 lucid dreams.

Soul Patterns: The Seven Chakra Personality Types

Shai Tubali
Friday, September 21  7pm

Fee: $20 cash at the door

Shai Tubali photoThe chakras belong to one of the oldest and most persistent systems the world has ever known. While this ancient Yogic system generally detects seven chakras in every human being, author and Yoga expert Shai Tubali claims that each of us has a far deeper connection to one major chakra and two secondary others. This connection weaves the structure of our personality and explains well why we perceive and experience the world in our own individual way. Even more deeply, this connection reveals our unique “soul design” and helps us to follow our higher destiny. This original vision of the chakra system not only enables an individual realization of our unique meaning and happiness, but can also increase harmony and cooperation in human relationships, and establish healthier organizations, teamwork and even world-peace.


Shai Tubali, chakra expert, spiritual teacher, authority in the field of Kundalini and the subtle body system, developed this principle as a result of 18 years of studies and expertise in the fields of Eastern thought and Yoga traditions. He lives in Berlin where he runs a school for spiritual development and holds seminars, trainings, satsangs, and retreats. Since 2000 he has worked with people from around the world, accompanying them on their spiritual path. He has written 20 books on spirituality and self-development, including Wake Up, World, a bestseller in Israel, and The Seven Wisdoms of Life, winner of the USA Best Books Award and finalist for the Book of the Year Award. Book signing of his new book The Seven Chakra Personality Types.
