Interaction of Pyramid Structures with Matter and Consciousness

Beverly Rubik, PhD- Biophysics & Harry Jabs, MS-Physics
Friday, February 3 7pm   RSVP
Fee: $20 cash at door

Large stone pyramids from ancient cultures around the world have attracted much wonder and speculation over eons of time. What was their purpose?  The dominant view that the Egyptian pyramids are merely elaborate tombs for the pharaohs is seriously lacking.  There are many anecdotes about extraordinary effects of pyramids.  

We will present our own discoveries using small pyramids including remarkable effects on dreams, among other effects.  We will also discuss the handful of scientific studies on “pyramid power”, such as the restoration of used metal blades to sharpness and offer a scientific explanation.

Since such physical effects are not always obtained, we hypothesized that consciousness might interact with pyramids either to block or facilitate the effects.  In a controlled laboratory study, we explored the interaction of distant mental intention with an open-faced, wooden pyramidal structure on the germination and growth of beans.   Distant intention to grow was applied from a group of over 50 participants in a workshop conducted by Beverly Rubik at a location over 1,000 miles from our laboratory, one month before the scheduled study.  Plant growth conditions were controlled.  Photographs of the plants were made over time and compared for germination, growth, and leaf size.  We measured dry biomass of the plants and calculated the differences between the plant groups. 

The results show that conscious intent interacts with pyramid effects.  A new scientific model for pyramids as psychotronic generators that work with operator intent and cosmic energy will be presented.

Science, Spirituality and Medicine

Len Saputo, MD
Friday, March 17 7pm   RSVP
Fee: $20 cash at door - Included in the admission fee are Dr. Saputo's two books: A Return to Healing and Science, Spirituality and Medicine

After fifty years of medical practice, it has become clear to me that there is an intricate organization and incredible perfection in the universe that is mindboggling, especially when it comes to illness. The more I have contemplated the workings of the universe in health and disease, the more I’ve become impressed with how every aspect of a person’s “dance with illness” unfolds in a way the reveals meaning and value. I have observed so many instances where my patient’s illness has had an impact beyond its associated physical disabilities and psychological challenges that I’ve come to expect there is always a deeper meaning that is an integral part of illness.

I will share my ideas about how science and spirituality…

• Address health and disease and…

• Integration of approaches to make sense of illness

• Explore the boundaries of our human potential

• Assess "where we go from here” to get the most out life

Included in the admission fee are Dr. Saputo's two books: A Return to Healing and Science, Spirituality and Medicine

WORKSHOP: The Empath's Survival Guide: Life Strategies for Sensitive People and Empathic Healers to Thrive

Judith Orloff, MD
Saturday, April 8 10am - 5pm   RSVP
Fee: $150 includes her book by the same title

Pay online via PayPal (PayPal account not required • includes $10 transaction fee):

The $150 workshop fee can also be paid by check and mailed to: AIM, PO Box 1921, Mill Valley, CA 94942

Sensitive people and empathic healers must learn to keep their hearts and intuition open without burning out. This workshop will teach you how to embrace the gifts of empathy in all situations, including patient care—without experiencing compassion fatigue or exhaustion. The secret is to learn to embrace your gifts and nurture and protect your sensitivities.

What is the difference between having empathy and being an empath? “Having empathy means our heart goes out to another person in joy or pain,” says Judith “But for empaths it goes much farther. We actually feel others’ emotions, energy, and physical symptoms in our own bodies, without the usual defenses that most people have.” In this workshop, based on Dr. Orloff’ s new book The Empath’s Survival Guide, you’ll learn invaluable tools to help sensitive people of all kinds—health care practitioners, parents, teachers, healers, and those involved with service, to develop healthy coping mechanisms in our high-stimulus world—while fully embracing the empath’s gifts of intuition, healing, creativity, and compassion.

This practical, empowering workshop will support empaths as well as everyone who wants to develop their sensitivities and empathy to become more caring people in an often insensitive world. Whether you’re an empath who absorbs other people’s stress, a highly sensitive person, or simply someone who wants to live a more open-hearted life without burning out or experiencing compassion fatigue—this workshop is for you. It’s for the loved ones of sensitive people who want to become more supportive of them.

In this workshop you will learn:

• The top ten traits of an empath

• The connection between empathy and intuition

• How empathy can enhance your relationships

• Protection techniques and meditations to guard your energy

• How to read people without taking on their emotional issues or pain

• How to stop absorbing other people’s stress

• How to be a sensitive person or healer without experiencing compassion fatigue

• How to develop your gifts as an empath

• How empathy can be used to heal and enhance energy medicine

Judith Orloff MD is author of the new book The Empath’s Survival Guide: Life Strategies for Sensitive People to Thrive and the Audio program “Essential Tools for Empaths”. Dr. Orloff is an empath herself, and is on the clinical psychiatric faculty at UCLA. She has a private practice in Los Angeles where she specializes in treating empaths and sensitive people. A New York Times bestselling author, Dr. Orloff synthesizes the pearls of traditional medicine with cutting edge knowledge of intuition, energy, and spirituality.
