We are pleased to announce the launch of our Symposium Online for Saturday 25th July 2020! As we have sadly had to postpone our full Glastonbury Symposium for this year because of the pandemic measures, we will keep the flame alive with this special event instead, featuring some Symposium regulars and a very eminent guest.
Taking place on what would usually be the middle day of the Symposium, this will be a five-hour series of live presentations in two sessions, morning and afternoon, conducted via Zoom or a similar platform, all for the bargain price of £20, which can be booked easily online here.
Some Symposium familiars will be presenting, including Andy Thomas, Helen Sewell and Jason Porthouse. However, we are also pleased to announce our very special guest RUPERT SHELDRAKE, the renowned author, scientist and researcher – see below for details.
We look forward to welcoming many of you to this, our first online event!

DETAILS OF SPEAKERS:
RUPERT SHELDRAKE is a biologist and author of more than 90 scientific papers and nine books, and the co-author of six books. His books have been published in 28 languages. He was among the top 100 Global Thought Leaders for 2013, as ranked by the Duttweiler Institute, Zurich, Switzerland’s leading think tank. The leading researcher into theories of ‘morphic resonance’, since 1981 he has continued research on developmental and cell biology. He has also investigated unexplained aspects of animal behaviour, including how pigeons find their way home, the telepathic abilities of dogs, cats and other animals, and the apparent abilities of animals to anticipate earthquakes and tsunamis. He subsequently studied similar phenomena in people, including the sense of being stared at, telepathy between mothers and babies, telepathy in connection with telephone calls, and premonitions. Although some of these areas overlap the field of parapsychology, he approaches them as a biologist. Website: www.sheldrake.org
ANDY THOMAS is a leading researcher into mysteries and cover-ups and is the author of the acclaimed The Truth Agenda and Conspiracies, both widely praised for providing real insights into classic conspiracy theories and the paranormal. His many other books include Vital Signs and An Introduction to Crop Circles, seen as definitive guides to the circle phenomenon. Andy is one of Britain’s most prolific lecturers and speaks in many other countries too. He has made numerous radio and TV appearances. An annual speaker at the Glastonbury Symposium since 1994, Andy’s presentations at the event are now renowned. He became co-MC in 1999, a role he continues to this day, and he is one of the core administrators for the Symposium. Website: www.truthagenda.org

She gives personal consultations, writes articles and is one of the tutors for MISPA (the Mercury Internet School for Psychological Astrology).
