Laughlin Conference 2004
I have just returned from Laughlin, and still a bit jet lagged, but
you would like tohave a quick summary of what my week was like.
- I had
a full agenda there.
to the EBE film awards with Expressions of ET Contact Communcation
and Healing Blueprint?
four Experiencer workshops for four evenings
the 'experiencer ' sharing on the Thursday morning at the congress
own 90 minute presentation.
took me 33 hours from my home to arrival at the Flamingo Hotel in Laughlin,
so it was a long trek. I arrived a day early, so that I could
be up to speed for Sunday. Saturday, prior to the congress opening,
I was invited to a small private gathering by Bob and Teri Brown to meet
the volunteers and also Bob and Teri and family. They were keen to hear
personally regarding my work with Star Kids, as they are both very interested
in this phenomenon.
informal gathering was really a lovely start to the conference.
The conference began with registrations and then into the swing by midday.
I introduced my new 80 minute documentary film entitled "Expressions
of ET Contact - A Communication and Healing Blueprint?" in the afternoon.
I was happy to say it was very well received. Throughout the film showing,
I sat next to Adrian DVir, the computer scientist, who was a participant
in my film and who was also presenting at the conference, regarding his
healing work in Israel in what he believes to be in Multidimensional hospitals
with Extraterrestrials. I also met his lovely wife, who is an architect.
I did have a stand to sell my book, Awakening and my new documentary film,
so was able to connect with many people that way. There were others close
by, one being Michael Horn with his excellent research and support of
the Billy Meir Case. Another wasLeah Hayley whose Contact story is quite
profound, her strength and resilance was remarkable. We really connected.
'experiencer groups" numbered from 50-60 each night, with at least
4-5 therapists, who work in the field, Roberta Fennig DO (Psychiatrist/experiencer)
who works with Joe Lewels in EL Paso. Dr Michael O'Connell, who is a Harvard
graduate, Consultant Psychologist who has worked with Dr John Mack. Therapist
Barbara Lamb of ACCET ( Academy of Clinical Close Encounter Therapists),
Psychotherapist Paul Hansen. This was very challenging, given the numbers
of experiencers and the different levels of awareness. Even the therapists
who attended said they were relieved that they didn't have to facilitate
such a large diverse group. So all I could do, given the short time, was
to spend three evening to allow sharing and the final evening offer some
At this time, I connected with an affiliated group to ACERN. A new organisation
I have set up in the UK called CONCERN (UK) and attending were three couples
who are members of this new group. Ann Andrews, author Abducted ..with
husband Paul, some may remember she visted Brisbane and Perth and few
years ago. Mike Oram and Fran Pickering ( Northern Co-ordinator of CONCERN
UK) and Steven Jones and wife Ann, a Holistic Therapist/experiencer.
Two of the couples had very unusual trips to Area 51 ( that is another
As the group faciliator of the Experiencer sharing, part of my work was
to find any experiencers who would like to share their story publically
on the Thursday morning. Only 5 were prepared to do this very personally
confronting experience, one was Roberta Fennig the Psychiatrist, three
of the CONCERN UK contingent, ie Michael Oram, Steve Jones and Ann Andrews,
plus another lady who lives in the US. I gave them 15 minutes each to
relate their stories. The stories were articulate and very moving. This
session is normally never filmed in deference to the speakers, but afterwards
Bob Brown ( one of the organisers of the conference) came back stage and
told me that he had numerous people come up to him afterwards and comment
that it was the best experiencer session they had heard and enquired where
did I get such quality speakers. I said of course, they found me! They
were dissapointed that it was not video taped! Consequently, now in the
future, a new policy will be in place to video tape this session.
Andrews told her story about when she finally learnt Jason had been having
Contact experiences and how guilty she had felt that she hadn't initially
Mike Oram told how he sighted a 'craft' which his family dismissed it,
but what was profound for him was that on one occasion his father saw
it too and on his death bed mentioned it.
Steven Jones has been doing work with Budd Hopkins and told the story
of how at 16 he was bilocated to another house 3 miles away after a Contact
Roberta was courageous to own how her Contact has changed her life and
After this sharing, I gave my 90 minute powerpoint presentation, not only
on the factual Contact reality, indicators of Contact with the historical,
anthropological, religious, medical scientific, psychological and ufological
world wide research, but also the spiritual and metaphysical references
to the Star Children Genesis. This coupled with personal testimonies from
young children and adults, who explained their personal understanding
of this phenomenon. I also explored the communication which seems to be
occurring not only telepathically, but in many diverse ways through symbology,
marks on the body, sound, language and art. To explore what this all means
and where it could be leading us as a sentient race, connecting with others
in the galaxy. I was very heartened to have this challenging hypotheses
be so well received, with several people afterwards who thanked me for
the work I was doing.
The final two days for me were networking and media work. A TV half hour
special with Ted Loman - satellite TV. Interview with Mexio Televisa
with Gilda Estrada. A video interview with Toshie Nakagawa from the largest
UFO research Group in Japan. She was very interested in my work with experiencers
and said there was no such support in Japan and felt strongly this must
be changed. She hopes to translate my book Awakening into Japanese, as
she feels it will help so many people. I also did several radio interviews
- Rob Simone Resonance FM 104.4 Fm in London. and Jerry Pippin, US.
The final day was concluded with the Gala dinner and EBE awards and much
to my delight as director of the documentary" Expressions of ET Contact
a Communication and Healing Blueprint?" won the best music in a documentary
award tribute to composer musician David Sandercock, Producer Bradley
De Niese. This is a lovely award and well deserved as David has generously
given enormous amounts of his time, energy and talent to this phenomenon
and to raising awareness. To accept the award on his behalf was a real
due to the strict security of Los Angeles Airport, I was under suspicion
for a short time until they acertained that the EBE statuete wasn't
a terrorist bomb. Such is the paranoia in the US these days.
My final part of the trip was with Dr Richard Boylan and Marian MacNeil,
both members of the Star Kids Project. We held our first Annual
General Meeting in, of all places, the Luxor Hotel (the pyramid), which
seemed symbolic somehow.
Then Richard kindly took myself, Marian, a young 'Star Kid" Cassie
and another colleague, together with my travelling companion, counsellor
Baljeet Carroll, on the long trek to Area 51 that evening.
we did the Little Ale'ien Inn and was greeted with warmth and friendliness.
We had the photo's taken behind the bar as well as outside. We certainly
saw some unexplained lights going to and from Area 51, with the obvious
"glow" over Groom Lake.
We reached the 'signs' which warned that extreme force would be used if
you crossed over and although we were miles from anywhere, immediately
we reached this sign on a dirt road two big headlight beams were pointed
in our direction making it very obvious that we were seen and noted It
felt very intimidating.... after we took some photos, the lights began
to come down the hill towards us and some more took the place of the ones
on the hill, so at least two lots of security arrived there. It was exciting,
but as I said, very intimidating.
After all the excitement, I finally had a few days in Hawaii and met two
Ufologists, Richard Dickinson and Paula who took us to the Army airfield
where we met with amateur star gazers of the Hawaiian Astronomical society
and for the first time, I really saw Saturn its rings and Venus, Jupiter
and its moons - marvellous stuff. Had they seen any UFO's, no one was
telling, but they seemed open enough.
So to conclude, it was a marvellous two weeks which has given me much
to think on, but more than that, the one thing that stood out is the wonderful
committed and dedicated people who share and explore this amazing phenomenon
and who are prepared to stretch themselves and their paradigms constantly
to seek the truth.
