Welcome to our brand new event!

This brand new event was born from our Engaging the Crop Circle Phenomenon series of lectures. We have decided to call this event a seminar rather than workshop, as it will be a collaborative event in which we dive deeply into the communicative aspects of the crop circle phenomenon. We aim to better recognise the ways in which we might engage the phenomenon and the ways in which it might be already engaging us.

If you haven’t already, please join our newsletter for first notice about this and other events.

This event was born from the foundation set-out in the Engaging the Crop Circle Phenomenon Lecture Series, parts 1, 2 & 3. 

If you haven’t seen these lectures don’t worry, you can still take part in this event. But if you would like to see them beforehand, they are available to purchase as videos (with accompanying materials) from this website, using the links below. Each lecture is priced at £20.

Lecture 1 – Charley Knoll & Other Stories
A historical look at some of the first explorations of the role consciousness played in the crop circle phenomenon. 

Lecture 2 – The Call: an eleven-step guide to engaging the crop circle phenomenon
A novel theory about the way in which the crop circles engage human consciousness

Lecture 3 – Presentation and Gesture: Core Messaging in the Crop Circle Phenomenon
An exploration and discussion about the differing ways the crop circle phenomenon communicates and what we might infer from that.


It is clear that the crop circle phenomenon speaks in many different ways. Whether that is through their shapes, geometry, dates and locations, or a whole strata of communication types, from the most obvious to the very subtle. 

The Engaging the Crop Circle Phenomenon lecture series set out to explore these methods of communication in some detail. From early clues and experimentation, attempting to map the process of engagement, to exploring the more subtle ‘body language’ cues that the phenomenon exhibits. All of these lectures drew upon both Karen’s personal experiences and the experiences of others who had come into contact with the phenomenon. 

It is clear from this work that the heart of the messaging of the phenomenon lies in the personal experiences of these who engage it. By exploring those engagements further and more widely we can build a more refined picture of these communications. This seminar hopes to do just that by inviting those drawn to the phenomenon to both share their own thoughts and experiences and to interact with other experiencers so that we can learn from one another. 

This seminar is not workshop or necessarily a teaching or lecture event, rather, it is an opportunity come together as a collegiate cohort. Our aim is to bring together a community of those engaging the crop circle phenomenon to further our understanding of how this phenomenon communicates with us both individually and culturally. 

No ‘expertise’ is needed to attend this event. All you need are your thoughts and stories about the crop circles you may have seen or read about to be able to contribute. This is an open invitation to anyone who has an interest or a calling to this phenomenon. 


  • We aim to bring together a community of people who are actively engaging the phenomenon
  • To further research into the messaging inherent within the phenomenon 
  • To further explore the idea of human communication/engagement with the phenomenon
  • To recognise and discover the way in which the phenomenon speaks to us, both personally and culturally. 
  • To compare and contrast perceived and received messaging for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon.


Our seminar will be divided into three parts, working over four sessions.

1. Personal Portfolios

We will firstly work to develop a personal portfolio in three parts:

  1. Portfolio of Participation
  2. Portfolio of Practice
  3. Portfolio of Engagement

This will be a personal document that charts your journey and relationship to the crop circle phenomenon. You do not need to be deeply involved, or experienced with the crop circles, you don’t even need to have visited a crop circle. We will begin with your first contact with the phenomenon, whether that was in the media (news or film), a book you read, a person you met, or an event you attended. We will then explore the effect it had on you, what were your first thoughts about the phenomenon, then move forward in time charting subsequent contacts, how your thinking about the crop circles has changed, what influenced you in those times. We will explore the crop circles that you have been particularly drawn to and why, any synchronicities you may have experienced in relation to the phenomenon, pertinent dreams, or  experiences of high-strangeness you may have had. 

Your story, the history and development of your involvement, the evolution of your relationship to the phenomenon.

The ways in which you have engaged the crop circle subject which might include (but not limited to); reading, drawing, learning, events, meditations or visiting the circles.

We will look at the crop circles that you have particularly been drawn to. The evolution of your thinking in regard to the crop circles, your experiences, synchronicities, dreams, intuitions, high strangeness and more subtle forms of engagement.

We will be looking to identify ways in which you may have already had some form of subtle contact with the phenomenon that you may not have recognised. We will also have the privilege of listening to the experiences of others and learning from their experiences of the crop circles. 

We will explore as a group the process of creating your portfolios including the….

  • Collection 
  • Selection
  • Reflection 
  • Projection 

… of materials.

There will be plenty of ideas and support to group members on how to create their portfolio. As each of our sessions are scheduled for every two weeks, it will give ample time for everyone to consider and create each stage of their portfolio. This should be a fun, revealing and fascinating process!

It’s hoped these portfolios will become an ongoing, developing and growing project in which our engagements can be traced, contemplated and better understood. Collectively as a group, we hope to then facilitate a deeper and wider understanding of how communication between ourselves and the phenomenon works. This will be an active piece of research in which everyone participates. 

2. Dialogue Circles 

These portfolios will then be discussed as a group using Dialogue Circles in which we use key methodologies from the idea of ‘Bohm Dialogue’ (conceived by David Bohm). In general terms these are free-thinking and free-flowing discussions in which the unconscious plays a part and the group works towards alignment, wholeness and new understandings in a setting of non-judgemental, or biased discussion. We will learn much more about these exciting methods during the seminar.

Each session will include formal presentations from your hosts and group dialogue circles – all in an easy, collegiate atmosphere where everyone brings something to the table.
