Katie Cook

Master of Ceremonies

Bio

Katie Cook has gained great success over the last two decades as a television host. She began her full-time television career with CMT (Country Music Television) in 2001. Since then, she has become a go-to expert in the field of country music and celebrity interviews in all genres.

She has interviewed such music celebrities as Dolly Parton, Keith Urban,Taylor Swift, Willie Nelson, Blake Shelton, Garth Brooks, George Jones, Kris Kristofferson, Stevie Wonder, Cher, Merle Haggard and more. Her work has taken her outside of country music as well, working with Nicole Kidman, George Clooney, Johnny Depp, President Obama, and John McCain. She has been called upon as an expert for CNBC, MSN, and CNN with Anderson Cooper, and also acted in the popular television series Nashville and One Tree Hill.

She was raised in a musical family, her father is of Hall of Fame songwriter, Roger Cook, who penned such classics as “Long Cool Woman in a Black Dress,” “I Believe In You,” “Talking In Your Sleep,” and “I’d Like To Teach the World To Sing”. Katie also inherited the musical gene and has a duo with her husband called SunKat. She is also the author of the young reader’s trilogy, Little Big Benny, about a young astronomer who doesn’t know he is the Universe.

What many people don’t know, is that Katie has also had a life long interest in ufology. Having had many strange experiences herself, she started reading up on the subject in her teenage years and attending as many conferences as she could. She is now merging her interview skills with her passion for ufology, and has created a podcast called Wide Open Wonders (W.O.W. for short.) She has already interviewed Kathleen Marden, Travis Walton, James Fox, Paul Hynek, Jim Penniston, Dr. Lynne Ketei, John Scheussler, and  she is just getting started! 

George Knapp

“AAWSAP, AATIP, BAASS, and the UAP Task Force–the secret UFO investigations”

Who are the AAWSAP, AATIP, BAASS organizations and what is the UAP Task Force? Exactly what do they do? George will be drawing distinctions between the groups and explaining the secret histories of their programs.

Bio

George Knapp was born in Woodbury, N.J., and raised mostly in Northern California. He graduated from high school in Stockton, California; earned a bachelor’s degree in communications from West Georgia College; and later earned a master’s degree in communications from the University of the Pacific, where he also taught speech and debate and served as director of forensics. George also taught speech at California Polytechnic University, coached the debate team at the University of California at Berkeley and taught broadcast journalism at UNLV.

Along the way, George also worked as a hod carrier, farm laborer, carpenter’s assistant and house painter. He moved to Las Vegas in 1979 and landed a job as a taxi driver. Later, he worked at KLVX-TV Channel 10 as a part-time studio cameraman and production assistant. KLAS-TV hired him in 1981 as a general assignment reporter. George also has co-anchored various newscasts for KLAS-TV.

Since 1995, George has been the chief reporter on Channel 8’s I-Team investigative unit. In that capacity, he has earned five regional Edward R. Murrow awards and a national Edward R. Murrow award for his investigative stories on the voter registration fraud in the Clark County election of 2004.

Knapp has won the prestigious Peabody Award twice and 28 Emmy Awards.   Nine times, he has won the Mark Twain Award for best news writing from the Associated Press. And in 1990, his series about UFOs was selected by United Press International as best in the nation for Individual Achievement by a Journalist.

Nick Pope

UAP: A Perspective from Inside Government

Recently, the focus when it comes to UAP/UFOs has shifted away from the public and onto the government, the military and the intelligence community. Whether it’s sightings involving US Navy pilots, or classified briefings in Congress, mainstream media outlets are featuring numerous stories about this, reframing the phomenoneon as a defense and national security issue. Former UK Ministry of Defense official Nick Pope gives an insider’s perspective of how government officials view and handle the phenomenon, both in terms of policy and investigations.

Bio

Nick Pope worked for the UK Ministry of Defense for 21 years. For much of the early Nineties he was posted to a division where his duties included researching and investigating the UFO phenomenon, to assess the defense implications. After taking early retirement in 2006, Nick was involved in a program to declassify and release most of the British government’s case files on UFOs – many of which he wrote. Nick now works as a broadcaster and journalist, contributing regularly to a wide range of TV news reports and documentaries. He’s also acted as consultant/spokesperson on several alien-themed movies and TV shows.

 

Matthew Roberts

“Disclosure, the only issue that matters”

I’ll never forget watching the announcement video of the founding of To the Stars Academy of Arts and Science. There were all of these people on stage that had worked for the government behind closed doors just as I had, so I was sure of their credibility. As the video began there was a quote on the screen behind the seated panel of these individuals. It was a quote from Mark Twain. “The two most important days in your life are the day you are born, and the day you find out why.” On its face it seems like its just some poetic statement about life. But what if I told you that that this is in fact possible; that it is in fact possible to know the true nature of the universe for yourself. It seems like this is a bold statement but this is the case. You don’t need science to explain this to you; you can know it, for yourself and its really not complicated at all. There are people who know this right now. There is a natural process by which you can discover this truth within yourself and I would even go so far as to say that this is what you are supposed to do.

The purpose of interaction with these non human entities is initiatory. It is an initiation into higher consciousness. There is a tearing down and a building up that conditions the mind into a way of thinking and perceiving; thereby allowing you to experience the universal truth for yourself. These initiations occur on a yearly basis. They begin with the autumnal equinox and end in the spring to summer months.

Bio

Matthew Roberts is a former US Navy Service member and author of the book Initiated: UAP, Dreams, Depression, Delusions, Shadow People, Psychosis, Sleep Paralysis, and Pandemics. Matthew spent sixteen years in the US Navy as a cryptologic technician and analyst. He was stationed onboard the USS Theodore Roosevelt in 2015 during the now infamous Gimbal event. In March of 2017 he transferred to the Office of Naval Intelligence as an analyst with the Nimitz Operational Intelligence Center which is the birthplace of the now public UAP Task Force.

While working at the Office of Naval Intelligence he began having follow on experiences with the phenomenon which he documents in his book Initiated. As a result of his experiences he decided to end his sixteen year career in Naval Intelligence in march of 2020.

 

Robert Salas

“UAP – Extreme Secrecy and the Escalating Risk of Nuclear War”

The modern era of UAP has been witnessed and documented for over the past eighty years. In that time, it has been seen, alternatively as a curiosity, a mystery, a scientific reality, science fiction and either ridiculed or taken seriously. Witnesses have included heads of state, military and civilian pilots, astronauts, and people from all nations.

Although government agencies have documented, acquired testimonies and collected physical artifacts of this phenomena, they have chosen to keep their evidence hidden from the public. That is an abuse of their power of secrecy that is not justified because it perpetuates public disinformation about the reality that extraterrestrial life has and continues to visit our planet. This extreme secrecy over this period of time is evidence of corrupt intent by state agencies worldwide. The existence of advanced extraterrestrial life and their technologies could provide the means by which human civilization could finally progress as a unified body and use new technologies to solve imminent threats to our survival.

My personal testimony is a reliable portion of the body of evidence that supports the reality of the UAP. As an Air Force nuclear missile commander, I was witness to UFOs disabling those missiles. I have written and spoken about my incident over twenty years. In addition, I can validate many other first-hand accounts and documents that will support similar incidents involving nuclear weapons. This evidence overwhelmingly points to the concern of our ET visitors about our potential use of nuclear weapons in future wars.

Clearly, the risk of nuclear war is growing with the continuing proliferation of nuclear weapons. We, who understand the reality of the UAP can work together and stand for the elimination of extreme secrecy by governments and the eventual elimination of nuclear weapons. With the advent of more highly credible witnesses coming forward and the current interest shown by members of government, there exists a renewed opportunity for Disclosure.

Bio

Robert Salas is a graduate of the U.S. Air Force Academy, class of 1964. He served seven years on active duty before separating from the Air Force in 1971. While on active duty he worked as a Weapons Controller, flew target drones, commanded inter-continental ballistic missiles as a launch officer, and a worked as an Air Force missile propulsion engineer on the Titan III program. From 1971-73 he worked as a safety and reliability engineer for Martin-Marietta Aerospace and Rockwell International on Space Shuttle design proposals. From 1974 until his retirement in 1995 he worked for the Federal Aviation Administration as an aircraft structures certification engineer. From 1991-93 he served as an FAA attache to the U.S. Embassy in Indonesia, advising that government on aircraft certification. Since

1998 he has worked as a mathematics teacher. In 2005 he published the book Faded Giant with co-author James Klotz which details his UFO incident while stationed at Malmstrom AFB, Montana in 1967. In 2013, he published Unidentified – The UFO Phenomenon, providing new details on the phenomenon as a whole. On September 27, 2010 he co-sponsored a press conference at the National Press Club in Washington DC where he and six other ex-military witnesses testified to the reality of the UFO incidents at U.S. nuclear weapons bases. In May 2013, he participated in the Citizen’s Hearing on Disclosure at the National Press Club, Washington DC. Mr. Salas has spoken at International conferences in Norway, France, England, Ireland, Germany, Italy, Bulgaria, South Africa, Costa Rica, Peru, Mexico, Argentina, and Brazil. He has been publicly speaking about his incident at UFO conferences, radio and television since 1996.

Charles Halt

“Rendlesham Updated”

In December 1980 a well-documented event occurred over several nights at RAF Bentwaters in East Suffolk England. At the time RAF Bentwaters the largest tactical fighter wing in the free world. The event involved the sighting of a strange craft, an object on the ground, multiple objects in the sky as well laser like beams directed at a military party on the ground and into the base area. More than 50 witnesses observed the incident. Strange sightings have historically occurred in the area and continue to this day. The presentation will include personal testimony of the ranking officer present as well as the recounted story of multiple witnesses. Recent information has come to light which shed more light on the events.  The truth has been clouded by many false stories by wannabee’s as well as embellished accounts.   Information will be presented to allow the recipient to draw their own conclusion.

Bio

Col. Halt earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Chemistry and Economics and an MBA in Business Management.  Served 29 years in the US Air Force and retired as a Colonel. Assignments included Base Commander at RAF Bentwaters and Kunsan AB Korea. Final assignment was Director of Inspections for the Department of Defense, Inspector General where he had inspection oversite of all military services and DOD civilian agencies. Retired in 1991 and for 12 years managed a large gated community or 7,000. While at Bentwaters was the primary participant and investigator in what many consider Britain’s equivalent of the famous Roswell case. Recently coauthored a book entitled THE HALT PERSPECTIVE now available on Amazon. The book was written primarily to get the truth out as significant misleading information is being circulated.

John Alexander

“UFOs/UAPs The US Government Encounters with Complexity”

Over three decades before the Advanced Aerial Threat Identification Program (AATIP) there was a similar project we called Advanced Theoretical Physics (ATP) and John ran it. Participants came from all DoD services, the Intelligence Community, and aerospace industries and all possessed Top Secret and SCI security clearances. John will provide insight to its operations and findings. Regarding the report from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence titled Preliminary Assessment: Unidentified Aerial Phenomena, he feels it revealed very little that was not already known to the general public. However, John will provide his take on possible outcomes including his opinions as to what is being observed and possible causes.

Bio

With half a century of service in national security, including combat as a Green Beret commander in Vietnam, Colonel Alexander held key assignments in Special Operations, Intelligence, and Research and Development.  He participated in several unique programs including application of psychokinesis, enhancing human performance with NLP, and experimentation with a unique energy source known as the Hutchison Effect. At the TS/SCI level he formed an interagency group to study UFOs called Advanced Theoretical Physics.

After retiring from the Army, he joined at Los Alamos National Laboratory and was largely responsible for the introduction of nonlethal weapons concepts in the US military. In Kabul, Afghanistan he worked as an advisor to the Minister of Defence, and later spent a decade as a senior fellow at a DoD university.

Education includes, M.A., Pepperdine University, Ph.D., Walden University, and later studies at the Anderson School of Management at UCLA, the Sloan School at MIT, and the Kennedy School of Government general officer program “National and International Security for Senior Executives” at Harvard University. Heading his doctoral committee was the legendary thanatologist, Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross (On Death and Dying).

He is a former past-president of the International Association for Near-Death Studies (IANDS), was a founding board member of the International Remote Viewing Association (IRVA) and served as a council member of the Society for Scientific Exploration (SSE). Conventional research included working with the National Research Council, Army Science Board, Council on Foreign Relations, and several NATO studies.

In addition to military awards for valor and service was Aviation Week & Space Technology selection as a 1993 Aerospace Laureate and in 1997 induction into their Hall of Fame.  He received a Department of Energy Award of Excellence for the Nuclear Weapons Program in 1994, and is listed in Who’s Who in America, Who’s Who in Science and Engineering, American Men and Women of Science, the IC Knowlton Award and was inducted into the OCS Hall of Fame at Ft Benning, GA

Publications include several monographs on international security, dozens of articles on a variety of topics and five nonfiction books. They include, Future War (with foreword by Tom Clancy) UFOs: Myths, Conspiracies and Realities, and most recently Reality Denied: First-hand Experiences with Things that Can’t happen – But Did

Kevin Day

“NIMITZ TIC TAC Incident”

The NIMITZ Strike Group encountered numerous UAP in the SOCAL Naval Operating Areas in November 2004. The well documented incident involved numerous eyewitness accounts from pilots, radar operators, and technicians. In total approximately 100 UAP objects were observed flying in small formations of 5 to 10 objects each. The successive formations of craft were initially detected vicinity of Catalina Island and were tracked by U.S.S. PRINCETON’s SPY-1 radar, fading from radar coverage in the vicinity of Guadalupe Island. The formations of craft maintained 28,000 feet, 100 kts. When approached by several F/A-18 Superhornets vectored from the NIMITZ, the objects were observed to behave like ‘some super capable flock of birds’. Acting as though they simply wanted to be left alone as they ‘migrated’ south.

Bio

Kevin Day is a retired United States Navy Senior Chief Petty Officer. A former Operations Specialist and TOPGUN Air Intercept Controller with more than 20-years experience in Strike Group air defense including war-time operations. An expert operator of the highly advanced SPY-1 radar system with years of service onboard AEGIS equipped ships including the VINCENNES, CHOSIN, and PRINCETON. Kevin has logged hundreds of air-to-air intercepts of suspect aircraft in both training and war-time operations. It was Kevin’s team in PRINCETON’s Combat Information Center that discovered the fleets of anomalous air contacts.

John Burroughs

“The Rendlesham Forest UAP Incident Forty Years Later”

The famous Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) sightings in Rendlesham Forest during Christmas of 1980 have been very well documented over the last forty (40) years with several books having been written on the encounter. The Condign Report, released in 2006, confirms that a phenomenon exists and should be studied further for military purposes of weaponisation! Everyone in the UAP community is waiting for confirmation. Well, guess what? Confirmation has already happened because the military has indeed unraveled how to weaponize UAP technology. John and Patrick Frascogna will give a summary of the Rendlesham incident, and will discuss the interest certain people inside the U.S. Intelligence Community and the weapons development industry have about what took place in the Rendlesham Forest at the end of 1980. John and Pat will also discuss how the Department of Defense (DOD) and Veterans Administration (VA) tried to cover up John’s involvement in the Rendlesham incident; how a retired CIA doctor stepped forward to assist John and Pat in getting his disablity award by showing he was injured by the UAP in the Rendlesham Forest; and how certain people with ties to the DOD showed interest in John’s injuries and DNA to help secure funding for advancements in technology on which they were developing.

Bio

  John Burroughs entered the United States Air Force (USAF) in 1979 and would go on to serve (27) years in active and reserve status. John had various assignments during his career in the USAF including assignments at Luke, Osan, Grissom, Castle, Al Jabber, Davis-Monthan, Williams, and Reese Air Force Bases.  He has been deployed over seas to Italy and the Middle East.  In 2002, John was deployed after being called back with his Explosives K-9 unit to active duty following the September 11 attacks.  John would again return to active duty in 2003 to the Middle East in preparation for Operation Iraqi Freedom.  In addition to his service in the Middle East, John and his beloved K-9 unit, Joop, also served in connection with the Secret Service at times as protection for the President of the United States.  John also participated with a squad in Operation Noble Anvil in 1999 in San Vito, Italy;  he has worked with the Joint Command Base with the U.S. Army (which ran all war operations in the theater), and; he was in charge of Day Shift Operations, which included (40) Security Forces Personnel providing security for the base and aircraft located at Brindisi International Airport.  The most notable assignment for John began in 1979 while he was assigned as a Security Police Law Enforcement Patrolman at Royal Air Base (RAF) Bentwaters in England during the peak of the Cold War.  RAF Bentwaters and, its nearby twin base of Woodbridge, together had the largest tactical fighter wing in the USAF.  In December of 1980 John became one of the primary witnesses to the famous Rendlesham Forest incident in England.  John has appeared and been portrayed by actors many times on television regarding the Rendlesham Forest incident.  He has been a radio guest even more frequently and has had his own radio show with Linda Moulton Howe.  John has spoken at numerous conferences about his experience in the Rendlesham Forest as well as with Mr. Frascogna in 2013 at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. at the Citizens Hearing on Disclosure.  He has co-authored two books: Encounter in Rendlesham Forest in 2014, and Weaponization of an Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon, The Rendlesham Forest Incident 40 Years Later in 2020.

“How to Gather Information at Area-51 Without Getting Arrested”

Mr. Ben R. Rich, the late President of the Lockheed Martin Skunk Works, considered me a friend, and is one of the many reasons I’m speaking. Add to that my long-time friendship with Bob Lazar (who I knew before he was hired at S4), Investigative Journalist George Knapp, and the legendary John Lear. This is where you start to see a pattern of my interests in things that go “bump in the night”.

Its been my objective over fifty plus years to ask questions of our government and my duty as an American taxpayer to demand answers to my inquiries. If the programs are not classified, then as a taxpayer and an American citizen, I expect answers vs the typical line of BS that has been supposedly hidden for “National Security” reasons. That answer is mostly bunk.

With a valid request for information, what happens when the answer is not to cooperate or for “National Security”? There are several avenues one could travel down but, my favorite is to head out into the desert of central Nevada to search for answers.

If and when you decide to take matters into your own hands, remember you are in the desert which is very unforgiving and dangerous to humans. Always go prepared, always bring more water than you think you’ll need, never go alone, and never knowingly break the law.

The security teams at both Area 51 and the Tonopah Test Range (TTR) have strict orders to prevent you from reaching your goals. And even if the signs say…. “Use of Deadly Force Authorized,” shooting a civilian is the very last thing Wackenhut (AKA… “The Camo Dudes”) or Advance Security Inc. (ASI) ever wants to become involved with. Shooting a trespasser involves way too much paper work!

Remember, the security forces within Area 51 and TTR have no legal law enforcement authority on the BLM side of the fence. If stopped, always be courteous, keep your hands where they can be seen, and smile. Being nice goes a long way.

My presentation focuses on how to avoid getting arrested and how to legally and safely gather your desired information – whether it be images or video of things our government doesn’t want you to know about or to see.

“The Rendlesham Forest UAP Incident Forty Years Later”

The famous Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) sightings in Rendlesham Forest during Christmas of 1980 have been very well documented over the last forty (40) years with several books having been written on the encounter. The Condign Report, released in 2006, confirms that a phenomenon exists and should be studied further for military purposes of weaponisation! Everyone in the UAP community is waiting for confirmation. Well, guess what? Confirmation has already happened because the military has indeed unraveled how to weaponize UAP technology. Pat and John Burroughs will give a summary of the Rendlesham incident, and will discuss the interest certain people inside the U.S. Intelligence Community and the weapons development industry have about what took place in the Rendlesham Forest at the end of 1980. John and Pat will also discuss how the Department of Defense (DOD) and Veterans Administration (VA) tried to cover up John’s involvement in the Rendlesham incident; how a retired CIA doctor stepped forward to assist John and Pat in getting his disablity award by showing he was injured by the UAP in the Rendlesham Forest; and how certain people with ties to the DOD showed interest in John’s injuries and DNA to help secure funding for advancements in technology on which they were developing.

 Joseph Patrick Frascogna, J.D., a native of Mississippi, was graduated from the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) in 1985 with a bachelor of science degree in geology.  He studied foreign languages abroad in Italy as well as Germany for a year at the prestigious Goethe Institute in Munich before returning to the United States.  He subsequently worked on the Washington, D.C. staff of U.S. Representative William M. Thomas handling issues for the congressman which included the Department of the Interior, U.S. Department of Energy, U.S. Forest Service, and the Federal Aviation Administration.  Mr. Frascogna later earned his Juris Doctor degree from the Mississippi College School of Law and entered practice as a public defender for Hinds County, Mississippi.  After serving as a public defender he opened his own law practice concentrating on federal civil litigation as a consumer rights attorney.  Mr. Frascogna has also worked in a leadership capacity on a number of projects with the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Association, and the National Football League. He invited John Burroughs to speak at a UFO conference he organized in Mississippi in 2011 because, as he said, “I was so compelled by the Rendlesham Forest encounter I wanted to meet the principals involved face-to-face.”  Following that conference John Burroughs asked Mr. Frascogna to help him in getting the government to recognize he had been injured during the events of the December 1980 UFO encounter. Mr. Frascogna accepted John’s request for help and, four-years later, they would indeed be successful in awarding John full disability and, in doing so, have the U.S. Government admit by de facto, for the first time ever, that a UFO was the proximate cause of injury to a human.  Mr. Frascogna has been a radio guest numerous times and has spoken at public conferences including the 2013 Citizen Hearing on Disclosure held at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.  He has contributed to two books co-authored by John Burroughs: Encounter in Rendlesham Forest in 2014, and Weaponization of an Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon, The Rendlesham Forest Incident 40 Years Later in 2020.

“Significant Cases of Interest Around the World”

Bio

Douglas Wilson first became interested in UFOs in 1968 when, at the age of 10, he was required to bring newspaper articles to school for “current events.” The articles he presented kept his fellow students apprised of the workings of the University of Colorado UFO Project, better known as the Condon Committee. At the close of the study, Douglas begged his mother to take him to buy a copy of “The Scientific Study of Unidentified Flying Objects,” the official findings of the Colorado Study. Although only 11, Douglas realized that the “scientific study” was far different from the study’s conclusion.

Later, as a teenager in 1977, Douglas had his first UFO sighting while riding with a Missouri State Highway Patrol Officer when the two observed a 30-foot, red, glowing disc at less than a quarter-mile distance. Later that year, during a UFO flap in Northwestern Missouri, he observed the falls of “Angel Hair.” These two events started Douglas on, what has become a 42-year fascination with UFOs.

From 1996 to 2006, Douglas took frequent trips to the Nevada desert to investigate and study the area around Rachel Nevada and the northeastern approaches to AREA 51. After 30 years of privately investigating UFOs and AREA 51, Douglas joined MUFON in 2007. After two years as a Field Investigator he was promoted to the position of Colorado Chief Investigator in 2009, followed by his appointment to Colorado State Director in 2011. After eight years of helping to grow the Colorado Chapter into a stable, thriving success, Douglas was selected to be the MUFON Chief Investigator in 2019 and Director of Investigations in 2021.

Area 51 Tour

Thursday August 26 or Friday August 27

Starting with Proof

Yes, Area 51 really does exist! Why is it there? Are they hiding an Alien Space Ship and bodies? It becomes quite clear why this location was chosen as America’s most Top Secret Military Facility. This exciting and intellectual tour starts with a very interesting stop at the Top, Secret Janet Airlines which has been hiding in plain sight at the Las Vegas International airport for decades. They transport hundreds of workers to and from Area 51 daily.

The Truth Is Out There

The route to Area 51, to the north of Las Vegas, is through some of the most desolate, uninhabited and incredibly scenic desert in the world. After an amazing journey through a stunning Joshua Tree Forest we arrive on the edge of an ancient dry lake where we view very unusual Indian Petroglyphs which are thousands of years old. We then explore a mysterious dry lake where UFO sightings often occur. After another beautifully scenic drive along the “Extraterrestrial Highway” we arrive at the world famous Little A’le’ Inn. This location has been host to numerous documentaries and movies including “Independence Day.”

Read The Reports Over an Alien Burger

Here you will find a wealth of information and souvenirs on this top-secret area. Captain Chuck Clark, an ex-air force captain, has written an amazing and very interesting in depth report on Area 51, which is also available for purchase. After a very tasty Alien Burger at the Little A’le’ Inn we journey to the infamous Black Mailbox location, a sacred meeting place for UFO enthusiasts where they watch the sky at night. We then arrive at the absolute perimeter of Area 51, entering through another dry lake with a strange Mutant Joshua Tree forest, where the guards (The Men In Black) with their high powered weapons, forever stand watch along with detection devices, listening devices and cameras mounted among the cactus.

See It For Yourself

You can wave at the heavily armed guards in the 4×4 parked on the desert hillside. But they never wave back. They just wait and watch from behind their darkened windows. It’s very spooky indeed. As much as the United States government, for decades, denied the existence of this base, we now know it is there but no one knows what they do there. This is an Extreme Tour to the world’s most top secret military facility, the real home of the X files, AREA 51.

  • Morning Area 51 Tours Depart 7:00 AM (duration 8 – 9 hours)
  • Fully Guided by experienced UFO Researcher

Private Speaker Panels

     Moderator TBA

 

Speaker Panel 1

Saturday August 28th – Paid Separately, Open to the Public

TOPIC: After 70 years of denial why is the military now going public with disclosure of UAPs?

– Is the Navy acting on its own or is it part of a broader concerted effort?

– With regard to UFO secrecy, does the government operate in a long-term strategic, rational, coordinated effort – or do various agencies and departments have their own fiefdoms and distrust each other and work at cross purposes?

– Are the Navy’s disclosures part of a coordinated effort to control the narrative before a smoking gun government revelation?

– If the government is ready to make such a revelation, why?

– Do they feel that their hand is forced?

This and more will be discussed and debated during this panel discussion

(Topic Subject to Change)

Speaker Panel 2

Sunday August 29th – Paid Separately, Open to the Public

TOPIC: Has Disclosure already Occurred? If Not, What Will it Take to Change the Paradigm?

– What will it take to change the paradigm that we are not alone in the universe for our entire planet?

– What breakthroughs will happen if that paradigm is changed & How long will this take?

– What kind of future can we look forward to?

– Are we even dealing with Extraterrestrials? Or, is this some other phenomena? Do we have reason to be concerned?

– What would the world response be to Confirmation? Panic? Chaos? Ho hum?

– Seen as a three step process – Disclosure, Confirmation, and Acceptance – Given the fractured nature of society and fake news, would a substantial percentage of the population not accept any kind of revelation or Confirmation, even if it was the quintessential flying saucer landing on the White House lawn?

This and more will be discussed and debated during this panel discussion

Experiencer Session 1

Saturday August 28th – Open to the Public

TOPIC: Presenting Evidence that Contact with Non-human Intelligence is REAL!

Are you an experiencer of contact or abduction by non-human intelligent entities (NHI)? Or are you interested in the latest research findings from one of the world’s leading investigators of contact with NHI? If so, this workshop is for you. Gwen presents evidence that contact with NHI is real and the methodology that has been developed to assist experiencers in learning to cope with this knowledge. You’ll learn the stages experiencers go through on their journey from denial to acceptance and what experiencers have in common that is not widely prevalent in the general population. You’ll hear some of the amazing things that experiencers have learned from NHI. On the contrary, if your contact has been of the negative type, you’ll learn suggestions on how to make them cease. Do you wonder about having hypnosis? Kathleen will offer information on the pros and cons of hypnosis and what it can accomplish. Her years of research, investigation, and work with experiencers have combined to give her insight into and a deep understanding of this incredibly perplexing area of study. 

Experiencer Session 2

Sunday August 29th – Limited Attendance

TOPIC: Roundtable Discussion on Contact Phenomena

Open to experiencers, their loved ones, and therapists ONLY. Sorry, NO press, NO recording.

Sit back, relax and enjoy listening to Gwen’s hypnotic voice lull you into a wonderful meditation that will leave you feeling relaxed and regenerated from head to toe. It is a form of protection that she facilitates with her hypnosis clients and teaches to experiencers. She and selected members of her team, MUFON’s Experiencer Resource Team, will facilitate a round table of discussion on contact phenomena. Share your own abduction /contact experience in a safe and supportive environment and listen to what others have experienced. Gain insight that you may not have previously known and realize that you are not alone.
