KEYNOTE: Dr. WAYNE W.DYER
Wishes Fulfilled: Master the Art of Manifesting
This lecture is dedicated to your mastery of the art of realizing all your desires. The greatest gift you have been given is the gift of your imagination. Everything that now exists was once imagined. And everything that will ever exist must first be imagined. Wishes Fulfilled is designed to take you on a voyage of discovery, wherein you can begin to tap into the amazing manifesting powers that you possess within you and create a life in which all that you imagine for yourself becomes a present fact.
Dr. Wayne W. Dyer explores the region of your highest self; and definitively shows you how you can truly change your concept of yourself, embark upon a God-realized way of living, and fulfill the spiritual truth that with God all things are possible-and “all things” means that nothing is left out.
By practicing the specific technique for retraining your subconscious mind, you are encouraged to not only place into your imagination what you would like to manifest for yourself, but you are given the specifics for realigning your life so you can live out your highest calling and stay connected to your Source of being. From the lofty perspective of your highest self, you will learn how to train your imagination in a new way. Your wishes-all of them-can indeed be fulfilled.

KEYNOTE: BRUCE LIPTON, Ph.D.
The Science of Personal and Global Transformation
We are in the midst of an incredible evolutionary event. Leading edge science is shattering old myths and rewriting the fundamental beliefs of human civilization. Cell biologist and bestselling author, Bruce H. Lipton offers a “new” biology that takes us beyond economic collapse, climate change and religious extremes to reveal that such chaos is a natural step in an unfolding process, rather than the tragic end to a broken planet. A revolution in science provides new awareness that will help us navigate this turbulent period in our planet’s history and reveals how each of us can actively participate in this global evolutionary shift. Based on his bestselling books, The Biology of Belief and Spontaneous Evolution, Bruce presents frontier science that illuminates the hidden connections among biology, psychology, spirituality and our imminent evolutionary upheaval. This dynamic presentation on the nature of how consciousness interfaces biology reveals how our thoughts, attitudes and beliefs create the conditions of our body and our place in the world. Rich in detail, yet accessible to the layperson, Bruce’s multimedia presentation offers new awareness that can facilitate our evolution from passive victims to responsible co-creators, while simultaneously offering the opportunity to heal ourselves and the planet.

Exploring Psychic Versus Energetic Disorders
We now live in the Age of Energy. We’re as active in our energy-technical culture as we are in our physical, if not more so. Many of us are technical, computer, I-phone, and email addicts, unable to be away from the Internet for more than 30 minutes without checking into the global satellite network system and its “energy lines of communication.”
This phenomenal shift in technology is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of what it represents in the realm of change. As a species, we too have undergone a quantum shift. In the past 50 years, we’ve shifted from being essentially five-sensory to becoming a multi-sensory species. We’re far more emotionally and psychically active than any previous human generation. Opening up our collective psychic/psyche/soul field while simultaneously manifesting that opening technically (a.k.a. the Internet), has resulted in the phenomenon of “psychic disorders” on a massive scale for the first time in human history. The problem is that while we speak about body/mind/spirit medicine and claim to follow a template of holism, none of our practices reflect that. That is, we’ve yet to even consider that psychic disorders exist, much less has the medical community conducted research into developing technology to test, measure, and treat energetic disorders. Instead, they fall into the realm of imagined, neurotic, or misdiagnosed.
