November 9, 2018 - November 11, 2018

We've invited two presenters who are highly trained in their respective scientific fields.  They will share with us their personal journey that has taken them from the purely scientific world into the metaphysical. They will each share their respective projects and how this information will further our own journey as we reach for higher levels of consciousness in order to attain at-one-ment with All That Is (God).

Thomas G. Allen PhD.jpg

Thomas G. Allen received a PhD in Psychology from Texas A&M in 1984. He has been in private practice since 1985, and is currently a consulting forensic psychologist. Between 1970-1975, he was introduced to the Seth materials as well as the Edgar Cayce information. As a seeker investigating the nature of reality and the soul, he has continued a lifelong pursuit in the development of spiritual practices that would not only benefit himself, but also be of benefit to all of humanity. A dream in 1990 led him to begin his exploration of sound as a tool to heal and deepen the spiritual connection. This sound project is now known as the Acoustical Pyramid and the number and intensity of sounds (songs) are under continual development. These sounds assist the listener in reaching ever deeper states of consciousness and stronger connections with one's Higher Self and the Universal Forces. His website is
