An Evening With A. C. Grayling

In the turbulent seventeenth century, science moved from the alchemy and astrology of John Dee to the painstaking observation and astronomy of Galileo, from the classicism of Aristotle, still favoured by the Church, to the evidence-based, collegiate investigation of Francis Bacon.

Children’s African Drum & Dance Workshop

A children’s African workshop, this family fun includes drumming, dancing and storytelling of the lifestyle in Ghana, West Africa.
We bring instruments and everyone has the opportunity to participate and share their unique rhythm.
Playing music in a group eliminates social barriers, increases self confidence, promotes focus and mind development and, most importantly, it’s FUN!!.

Close Encounters Conference

This year, Mick and Kathryn have expanded their journey to look at consciousness beyond the soul and angelic realms, to gain a better understanding of our cosmic consciousness – investigating consciousness in the stars, lives lived on other planets, starseeds, ET encounters and how it impacts on contactees and how we can move and thrive into a 5D consciousness. This awakening process has seen Mick and Kathryn now create a second conference called The Close Encounters Conference which is being held immediately after the Afterlife Explorers Conference.

Afterlife Explorers Conference

Is there life after death?
Is there intelligent life on other planets?
Experts gather to share evidence and experience at the
Australian Afterlife Explorers Conference and the Close Encounters Conference
