audio conversation with Kewaunee Lapseritis

Author, researcher and contactee with both
Sasquatch and the UFO occupants
I read the The Psychic Sasquatch shortly after it first came out in 1998. I had come across whisperings of psychic experiences as well as UFO sightings, in connection to Sasquatch, but this was the book I had ever read on the subject. I was kind of mystified, and the one question that was in the forefront of my mind, was who was this author? Well, I met him in February of 2014, and after about ten seconds of talking with him it all became clear.

Kewaunee Lapseritis is a tall strong man who stands straight up with a power that that impressed me. He spoke about his experiences with both ETs and Sasquatch with a forthrightness in a way that I found oddly soothing. I liked the guy enormously.

Just a few days ago I finished reading his most recent book, The Sasquatch People. On one level the book is an endless set of reports, one after another, of people’s interactions with big hairy people in the forest, but each story had a psychic element, or something multidimensional or ETs were involved. Literally hundreds of these reports within these pages.

I think anyone who looks into this stuff has a continuum of how they frame what they are Well, Kewaunee is way out at the far edge of the continuum of what I’m capable of believing. In a lot of ways, he is saying things I have heard repeatedly from contactees, but from the UFO end of the spectrum, not from a Sasquatch perspective. So, I was both challenged and delighted by both his book and this conversation.



Kewaunee’s website HERE, and his books can be found HERE.

If you have a personal Sasquatch experience, I am certain he would love to hear it! You can contact him through his website HERE.

We jumped right into the deepest waters with this talk, if you want a good intro to his ideas and research, click HERE.
Kewaunee Lapseritis, AS, BA, MS, is a holistic health consultant, social scientist, masterh herbalist and master dowser with background in anthropology, psychology, conservation, and holistic health. Kewaunee taught anthropology for one year at North Adams State College and later taught dowsing and psychic development at the Wisconsin Society for Psychic Reasearch. He has the researched the Sasquatch phenomenon for the last 55 years. Mr. Lapseritis is both a Sasquatch and ET "contactee."

The "ancient ones" seem somehow closer(genetically?) to humans. The female who'd sing to Kewaunee Kewaunee Lapseritis reminded me somewhat of Streiber's accounts at his Peekskill cabin when he'd hear that haunting voice crying out to him at night.

I noticed the stunning blue eyes that Kewaunee Lapseritis and you (Mike) have.

I was wondering if he is Finnish descent or possibly Greek descent? I'm trying to place that surname with his striking looks (those remarkable blue eyes).

Thanks for the interview!

I love this guy! I was really expecting him to be too far out there for me (I have never seen a Sasquatch in all of my vast hiking experience); but nonetheless, much of what he spoke of found a home in my heart.

His commentary about praying being about asking a question and meditating being about listening for the answer ... this hit me right between the eyes.

Thanks for another great interview :)

About to listen to the interview..but first, it's Kewaunee not Kewaunne.
On to hear the fellow...

So last night during meditation I was told by whatever voice sort of takes over when i am in the zone that I have the ability to let go.... to accept the strange, and that i need to further develop this ability. It's a difficult balance admittedly. In order to face these topics people are going to need to let go of everything we think we know about reality. This includes me. Even within my own "letting go" i still cling to internal beliefs and i feel this can hold me back. It's hard to undo years of western education, and while this education has merit and is deeply appreciated, it needs to act as a foundation and not a cage. Like training wheels on a bike.

Anyhow, my knee jerk reaction (and i assume most people listening understand) is "oh no, this guy is going to be too far out there for me. He's got to be crazy." But then, i think about my own experiences and i realize my path is absolutely strange and unbelievable. This guy just has the nuts to say it to the world.

Congrats my good man. :)

To me its like this. Look deep into the depths of the ocean and you will find strange and fantastic beings right here on our small planet. Why then when we turn towards the rest of the universe are we expecting them to fit some sort of mold? Why are we expecting contact to be anything but unbelievably strange?

brownie said...

Merlyn's Apprentice - Re. your last paragraph directly above.

And when we think of the beings found in the depths of the ocean, there might be a profoundly different sentient life that is 'alien'....What Ivan Sanderson and Mac Tonnies wrote about.

I loved this interview!
Thanks Mike!

Voyetos!

As a Chicago expatriate, who had a Lithuanian girlfriend for 5 years, I would respond to Brownie's inquiry about the surname Lapseritis with my guess that it is a Lithuanian name.

Thankyou John!

The moment Kewaunee started talking about the X number of alien races visiting our planet, my masked luchador senses started tingling.

But I admit that, leaving those aspects of his tale aside, several things he said resonated with me. I particularly liked his concepts of how praying is talking to God, whereas meditation is listening to God.

PS: When you asked to your crystal pendulum 'should I trust you'? did smoke start to come out of it? :P

PPS: I think I can see why you liked this guy so much. Perhaps you notice his confidence & how he has naturally learned to integrate all these weird elements into his life, and you might be saying to yourself "that's where I want to be 10 years from now"

...But I don't think the pony-tailed look would favor you much Mike :P

John Burke said...

Whenever I listen to a new agey-type speaker, I pay close attention to how much of the discussion as about the speaker’s own personal specialness – as opposed to how much is intended as useful information or advice for the listener (self-improvement, etc.). In the case of Mr. Lapseritis, he focused quite a bit on the personal specialness stuff. For example, he mentioned on several times that he is a “master herbalist”. Fishermen who are similarly adept at baiting hooks don’t talk that way about themselves, for obvious reasons. I also pay attention to how much the speaker is trying to promote anti-rationalism. Emphasizing that our culture has deprogrammed people from paying serious attention to their own intuition is one thing, but to discourage critical thinking altogether usually signals an agenda of instructing the listeners to “pay no attention to that man behind the curtain”. The oversimplified “feelings = good and logic = bad” argument is usually part of that.

Red Pill Junkie said...

To John Burke:

I admit I too did notice Kewaunee's frequent 'self-promotion' during the discussion.

About the 'anti-rationalism,' I think IMO the point he wanted to get across is that our linear (Cartesian if you will) logic will only get you so far, and there seem to be other avenues to acquire information & insight.

That said, I also must say that disregard for Evolution is a bit too much in my book. I personally have issues with the current Darwinian take on Evolution --ascribing ALL the process to random chance & 'natural selection' for instance-- but IMO there's plenty of evidence that we humans have evolved from extinct species of hominids.

Now, whether we were in some way 'tampered' with during the early stages of our time in this planet, that's something not entirely impossible.

REPLY to John Burke,

I have spoke to Kewaunee briefly before the interview. He expressed some frustration on how he is perceived by the mainstream, but he says he tries not to get angry and always reacts with kindess. (I could see him doing this).

He includes his educational degrees in his bio, and makes sure to point out that he came from a very "normal" background.

When I spoke with him privately, he was enormously helpful, pointing me to people who are doing similar work.

And, I watched him interact with people in a conference setting. He struck me as perfectly gracious.

I have been getting SO many synchro-hits where the message is to *move past logic and follow your heart*

This has been the mindset (or heart-set?) where I feel my best writing and research emerges.

I have been told (rather sternly) that this isn't scientific. I reply that I'm not a scientist, I am an artist trying to explore my own, extremely challenging, personal experiences.

eattherich said...

To me- rather than “feelings = good and logic = bad”- it´s gotta somehow have to do with embracing the sweet paradox of things, or what is anxiously construed like such by the linear 1-D intellect.

Logic and emotions are all fine , none of them bad per se, but maybe the thing is that the spiritual/shamanic functions don´t really fit in any of those categories- but is a category all of its own (and-paradoxically...in a way including all others). Very real but on its own terms with it´s own tools and language needed.

It´s like we´ve got quiet, invisible senses working for us all the time, weather we know or not, and need to find the means to work them in a more conscious way.

And I think liking it to the artistic and also poetic way of thinking/seeing etc, is meaningful and can be very helpful.

Reply to Mike Clelland and Red Pill Junkie:

Where I got turned off by this presentation was at the point when he tried to rehabilitate the 2012 myth by changing it from a calendar date to a 4-year range. Is this an Official New Age Talking Point or – worse yet – did he come up with it on his own? By redefining 2012 as a four-year time frame, the addition of two years on the front end helps mask the motive of buying time on the back end. So, in addition to being disingenuous, this is downright sneaky. This will surely find its way into the Great Book of New Age Excuses and we will probably continue to hear it from other sources until the extended deadline expires – at which point the parameters will likely be redefined once again.

Red Pill Junkie said...

Maybe it's a plan to 'move the goal posts' & adding 4 more years to the 2012 mythos; personally I don't see much help in ascribing special meaning to specific dates, and we should also be mindful that most (if not all) channeled prophecies in which a given year is prophesied, and nothing ever happens.

That said, I feel that only the most closed-minded cynic would deny that A LOT has been going on in the world since 2012: The Pope resigned & a new more progressive was elected, the whole NSA spying programs exploded into the mainstream consciousness, and now the New York Times was discussing things that up until then were reserved to Alex Jones & conspiracy theorists... should I go on?

2012 wasn't the end of the world. It was the end of the illusion of what the world is.

I'm still waiting for something earth-shattering to happen at (to) Fox News.

Lapseritis comes across as a really nice and genuine guy but if he claims that the sasquatch people told him to write a book and a second and a third one I become sceptical. The objective according to him is to let humanity know that the sasquatch are not animals but intelligent beeings. Selling a book contradicts that objective somewhat. If what he claims is true wouldn´t it be more effective if he´d put what he knows as a pdf file online. Free and for everybody available. Instead the knowledge is only shared with those who are willing to spend money. I won´t want to say that Lapserits is "in this for the money" but I cannot shake that feeling. I´ve never had any experiences like Kewaunee or Mike had which is probably why I´m so sceptical.

Red Pill Junkie said...

To Denis:

The issue of book selling is something of a catch-22 in this field. If you want researchers to share their research freely, then that mains they'd need to have a day job to support themselves; the problem is said day job will let few precious time to perform the research & document it. (Believe me, I'm talking from experience here...)

But then, when some (very few) researchers DO manage to support themselves exclusively by the books they write or by accepting speaking engagements, then people accuse them of being sell-outs! There's just no way to win.

It should also be noted that nowadays writing a book about these subjects is not going to bring you fame & fortune. Some people have confided in me that, given all the time they devote to writing the text, at the end of it what they receive in return is *barely* beyond minimum wage --and that's if they're lucky.

Yes, we all want things for free, but we also need to be realist: people have to eat, and they deserve some return for their efforts.

For those who are anxious about not being rational, consider that,

"In the language of Karl Marx, what presents itself as reason is in fact ideology.
The voice of God is an authority that is higher than the rationality of either the current establishment (Hegel) or the revolution (Marx)."

-> Danish 19th century philosopher and religious writer Soeren Kierkegaard.

Gheron said...

I have decided to follow Mike's advice when listening to this type of interview - just turn off my filters. Does this mean I have abandoned all logic and rationality? No - but it does acknowledge that I have already decided to spend two hours of my time to listen to a podcast on ETs, UFOs and Sasquatches, so I am already not exactly occupying the rational high ground. However, I am not about to join a cult and wait out in the woods for our Bigfoot space brothers to take me home.

It seems to me that experiencer accounts are so individual and odd that they don't fit we'll into our usual frameworks for analysing if something is real. The generous skeptic will say that it is all just a self created fantasy. The debunker will of course be much harsher, as they respond to the narrative they have constructed to explain their world being so strongly challenged.

I would like to suggest a third way, between it's really happening and it's nothing more than fantasy. What if you decide today to live your life as if you are in direct contact with physic Sasquatches? What effect will this have on your reality? It seems to me that you are now entering the realms of Magick and invocation. We are all greater artists than we can imagine.

Mike Clelland! said...

I do not advocate "turning filters off" -- but I do advocate simply being aware of the filters, because they are always there, no mater what your take.

Just know there is a filter in place. Sometimes that means that you can get a good image of what has been left aside. That pile of "removed" stuff can be just as interesting!
