Your 2021 Speakers:
(in addition to your facilitators/speakers above)
Geoff Fitzpatrick was introduced to mandalas whilst studying the pioneering work of Carl G Jung and has spent the past 15 years exploring the intersection of geometry, spirituality and psychology through these symbols. Working with mandalas has opened Geoff to the profound power geometry possesses to influence states of consciousness. The construction of sacred sand mandalas during Geoff’s Mandalanature sessions opens people to a deeper aspect of themselves by blending creativity, geometry and mindfulness in a unique and special way. In addition to his studies at Trinity College and the Milltown Institute, Geoff has trained with Dr. Stanislav Grof MD learning a psychotherapeutic technique called Holotropic Breathwork. Dr. Grof’s cartography of the psyche informs the Manalanature model entirely. Geoff is also a regular visitor to the crop circles, to experience their spaces and contemplate their geometries. Geoff combines his love of Mandalas, consciousness and the circles to form a unique view of this phenomenon.
Workshop: Introduction to Crop Circle Geometry
Geoff will be giving a presentation on the ‘Qualities of Crop Circle Geometry’ as part of this workshop
Presentation: Crop Circles: Mirrors of the Soul
Geoff takes us through some of this personal thoughts and experiences from his years interacting with the corp circle phenomenon.
Dan Vidler is a School teacher, ardent crop circle enthusiast, photographer and webmaster of www.ukcropcircles.co.uk which documents the interiors and ground details of the crop circles. He has been a regular and popular speaker at the Summer Lectures since their inception. Dan has a keen eye for the fine detail of the circles; the lay of the crop and other significant ground details. Each year he presents us with the intrigues and delights of the interior of the circles, so easily missed by all but the most eagle-eyed, accompanied with an eye-watering array of beautiful photography.
Dan has been investigating and photographing the interiors of crop circles since 2003, documenting the finer details within the laid crop and reporting on significant features at ground level. Close inspection of laid stems often reveals unique, surprising and mysterious aspects of the phenomenon, reflecting the beauty and majesty seen from an aerial perspective but which might go unnoticed to all but the keenest observer
Presentation: Inside ‘In Formation(s)’
So many of these incredible designs, every summer, inspire awe and wonder, spark discussion, debate, reflection and intrigue, and leave us perplexed by their beauty, mystery and possible meaning. Looking more closely, at ground level, adds another layer to our understanding, or perhaps lack of understanding, of this phenomenon. What appears to be impossible layering of stems, detail in woven crop down to a single piece of wheat, changes in direction of ‘flowing’ crop and effects seen from the air caused by intricate patterns on the ground reflect the magic and (almost) impossibility that we are lucky enough to witness every summer. The 2021 crop circle season has provided yet more evidence of this magic, including rare and unique details which have ‘raised the bar’ even further!
Peter van den Burg & Melanie McCalmont
Peter van Den Burg has been researching crop circles since 2007. Primarily their geometric properties, gradually expanding his search to the relation crop circles have with the surrounding landscape. His drawings have been featured on the Temporary Temples website for the last two years. He lives in Norway with his dog Nico.
Melanine McCalmont is a US geographer and non-fiction author based in Colorado who has studied the geography of the crop circles since 1997. Melanie has a Master’s Degree in the Geography of Communication from the Univ of Wisconsin. Her field analyzes why and how people communicate in places/locations, what tools they choose, and how those choices create shared meaning and function. Melanie visited the Wiltshire circles in 2010 and attended one of our early conferences
Presentation: The use of written language is an effective symbolic tool to communicate vast amounts of information with a minimum use of space. Crop circles with apparent “writing” have appeared, either spontaneously or in response to our writing. Since the authors of the crop circle phenomenon are capable of communicating this way, this session asks: Why do they choose to show us writing-like symbols? And why are there so few circles with writing? What is this trying to teach us? In this presentation, we will analyse a few examples and place them in a broader context of communication. We will look deeply at two formations with writing, and discuss what next steps could be?

Presenation: One Number, Two Circles and Three Symbols – Linking Crop circles with Stone circles.
During the Neolithic Period, a package of techniques was repeatedly applied to monuments and across landscapes throughout northwestern Europe. Our modern world remains dumb concerning what these were for, nor why they were ever built, having lost sight or value for the science and techniques that once underpinned these monumental structures. To many uninformed folk, prehistoric monuments – permanent temples – are linked to aliens or to Atlanteans, an exclusive elite who died carrying the ‘secrets’ of their cosmology with them. Our Age refuses to look at this megalithic science, labeling it as a pseudoscience. How similar is this response to the treatment the crop circle phenomenon – the temporary temples – has received from the establishment! Year after year, fields worldwide are blessed with the most incredibly beautiful landscape art around and nobody knows exactly why or how this comes about. My presentation focusses in and around a megalithic site in the Preseli hills, where archaeologists are claiming that a ruined stone circle was the source of some, if not many, of the famous Stonehenge bluestones. Working almost entirely under the earth, they have failed to glimpse the glories of what the site reveals above the ground, the natural habitat of a megalithic scientist like myself. The whole site will be seen to come alive and by concentrating on a single crop circle, a single number and a single geometrical form, no one needs to feel ill equipped to reckon with the information nor its implications, which are truly stunning.
Andy McGrillen & Andy Zetterstrom ‘That UFO Podcast’ Andy and Dan are the presenters of the hugely popular ‘That UFO Podcast’.
Presentation: Since the New York Times ran their headline front page article exposing the US government’s secret UFO investigation project AATIP (Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Programme) in December of 2017, the UFO topic (or UAP as we now must call them – Unidentified Areal Phenomena), has finally become a serious topic within the mainstream media and the stigma surrounding the subject is beginning to lift. Andy and Dan will be us an update of where we currently are with UFO disclosure and why what seemed impossible in 2017, is now looking highly likely – public disclosure of the reality of the UFO/UAP phenomenon.
Scott Onstott has taught thousands of students in person and millions online in his career. Scott enjoys teaching all levels and all ages. He looks forward to sharing his love of sacred geometry with all students for the purpose of personal development. He started out with a degree in Architecture, and spent years gaining professional experience in the field. He transitioned to teaching students 2D design and 3D visualization software in San Francisco, and then again to writing books, ebooks, and recording video courses on these subjects on a remote island in British Columbia.
In 2010 Scott wrote, narrated, and single handedly produced an online documentary passion-project series called Secrets in Plain Sight, which explores patterns in art, architecture, urban design & the cosmos. This was well received by millions around the world and continues to be enjoyed as an esoteric classic on Gaia and YouTube. Since then, he wrote and beautifully illustrated eight thought-provoking books on the above theme, including his most recent Sacred Geometry: Philosophy & Worldview (2021).
Presentation: Sacred Geometry as a Philosophy and Worldview An integration of the spiritual teachings of non-dualism, transpersonal psychology, and a fascinating new theory of mind, Scott Onstott explores how and why the qualitative experience of geometry feels sacred. He unpacks the geometrical order underlying the universe into a clear philosophy that can transform your entire worldview to an alternative that is intrinsically meaningful and profoundly encouraging.
