Welcome and Introduction

It has nearly 20 years since we first began hosting our annual conferences and during that time the crop circle phenomenon, while remaining ever present, has changed enormously. The way we think about the subject and interact with the circles has moved on and so has the way we do our conference, with emphasis on community and the sharing of ideas and experiences.

In the past few years we have moved our conference online to widen the opportunity for people to attend and take part. This format has proved hugely popular, allowing those who would never get to travel to the UK, to now take part in our events. Today, we have a burgeoning and vibrant online community that sees people from all over the globe come together to marvel at and explore this beautiful phenomenon. 



Who is this conference for?
We welcome anyone who has an interest in the crop circles, beginners, veterans and everyone in between. You’ll receive a warm welcome from our hosts, speakers and our community!
Our conference begins with two 2-hour introductory workshops, An Introduction to Crop Circle Geometry and An Introduction to Crop Circles & Consciousness. Both these workshops are an opportunity to explore two of the most fascinating aspects of the crop circle phenomenon and are designed for both beginners and those who have a little more experience and knowledge. 

Our Introduction to Crop Circle Geometry Workshop with Karen Alexander, offers both theory and (optional) hands-on drawing exercises to familiarise our attendees with the role of Sacred Geometry in the crop circle phenomenon.

Once again it is presented with both beginners and the more experienced in mind and is designed to give a good grounding in many of the concepts you will undoubtedly hear discussed during the weekend. Pi, Phi (Fibonacci) and Squaring the Circle are all introduced.
Don’t worry if you’ve never drawn with a compass and straight-edge before, our workshop hosts with draw with you on screen to help guide you through the process! Upon booking, we will send you a PDF that lists the drawing equipment you’ll need to have to hand for the workshop. 

The Introduction to Crop Circles & Consciousness Workshop with Dr. Jonathan-Paul De Vierville & Karen Alexander, looks at what links consciousness with crop circles and opens with the question ‘What brings you here?’ The group widens and deepens to discuss synchronicity, dreams, how the crop circles impact upon the psyche and what that might have to tell us about the phenomenon.

This workshop is one of the most fascinating and stimulating sessions of the entire conference. People come together to share their personal experiences, impressions and intuitions about the crop circles, in addition to their personal connections with the phenomenon. For those that attend, this workshop seems to generate a great camaraderie and group spirit as the conference progresses.
