I'll be one of the presenters at the upcoming IUFOC (International UFO Congress) just outside of Phoenix. This is a 5-day conference run by Open Minds Magazine. The event runs through the 12th through 16th of February 2014.
A while back I sent in a written proposal to the conference organizers; writing this letter involved some coaching from Micah Hanks. They got back to me recently with a yes, explaining that they've been receiving some feedback that attendees wanted to have more abductees as presenters. I'll be one of 20 speakers in the line-up.
This is an event I've been attending annually since 2008. The reason I make the pilgrimage each year is because it's a long format conference. This allows for much more time to sit and connect with the other attendees, many of whom have their own experiences.
Here's the synopsis of my presentation:
Owls, Synchronicity and the UFO Abductee:
Mike Clelland began his study of the UFO abduction phenomenon in 2006 as a way to better understand his own personal experiences. This act of looking unleashed a flood of synchronicities as well as intense owl sightings. These events have been the focus of his ongoing research. Both owls and profound synchronicities seem to play a guiding role in the direct experience of some abductees, this connection points to a deeper reality at play in these mysteries. By looking at these elusive and often ignored aspects of the abduction lore, something truly mystical seems to be revealing itself.
