The Knights Templar and the Alien Connection
Forensic geologist Scott Wolter, best known as the host of History channel’s hit show America Unearthed which follows him on his quest to uncover the truth behind controversial historic artifacts and sites found throughout North America and beyond.
He also hosted other programs in which he followed the Templar trail in Europe, the Middle East and even North America, leading him into the realm of the Freemasons, medieval monastic orders, pirates, and modern-day Knights Templar. Scott is the author of two books about the Templars and Freemasons including the wildly controversial, The Hooked X: Key to the Secret History of North America and the follow up book, Akhenaten to the Founding Fathers: The Mysteries of the Hooked X. Along with his earlier fact-finding book, The Kensington Rune Stone: Compelling New Evidence, about the controversial artifact discovered in his home state of Minnesota in 1898, Scott presents the details of his continuing research and evidence for his history changing discoveries. Whether it is by way of his books or captivating lectures, Scott explains his quest began with his determination to solve the origin of the mysterious Kensington Rune Stone, which he examined in his lab in 2000, resulting in his stunning scientific finding that it is a genuine medieval artifact, a document inscribed in a native Midwestern rock over 650 years ago, by a party of Templar Knights. But why were they here and where did they come from? What became of them? And did they leave any other evidence they were here?
Professionally, Scott, a forensic geologist, has worked as a petrographer since 1985. In 1990, he founded American Petrographic Services and continues to serve as President. He has been the principal petrographer in more than 7,000 material forensic investigations throughout the world, including the evaluation of fire-damaged concrete from the Pentagon following the attacks of September 11, 2001. Scott earned his bachelor’s degree in Geology and Earth Science from the University of Minnesota-Duluth in 1982.

Michelle and Brittney Reuss
Demonic Myths and Exorcism:
Have you ever been curious about the practices of demonology and exorcism? There are a lot of myths, rumors, and legends out there surrounding these practices, and this discussion focuses on clearing things up. Demonology is the study of demons and their behavior, while exorcism is the actual act of expelling a demon from a person or place. It's important to note that not all negative energies are demonic entities, and not all demonic entities are the same. There are many different types of demonic entities, such as demons of temptation, possession, and destruction. However, demons and negative energies can mimic each other, so it's important to seek the help of a trained professional to determine the root cause of any negative experiences. By understanding the truth about these practices, we can dispel myths and rumors and approach them with a clear and informed perspective.

Paranormal Researcher, Psychic Medium, Co-Founder of Riverside Iowa Paranormal
Brittney's passion for the Paranormal started when she was 4 years old when she had her first encounter with an elemental. At that age she had no idea what she was dealing with, but knew she had to learn more.
Fast forward to 17 years of age when she started investigating all the time. She didn’t care what others thought of her or how she was “weird” and stood out amongst everyone.
Brittney joined the Army and served 5 years active duty with a deployment to Iraq. Being in Iraq opened her mind and eyes up to new possibilities and beings in the paranormal field. While serving, she still did investigations with groups or went off on her own to get answers.
After the Army she joined the Police Dept. in Iowa City, Iowa until she realized her passion was stronger for the paranormal field. Knowing she needed to get answers, not only for the supernatural but for herself; as she was seeing/feeling/hearing the dead on a normal basis. She dove in head first and hasn't looked back.
Dying to Meet Them
While most Near-Death Experiencers return to this plane of existence with alluring tales of their time spent in the presence of the divine, what happens when one crosses the veil into the afterlife and Heaven refuses to answer? What existence truly lies beyond our own expectations? In this gripping true story, author, investigator, and aneurysm survivor Mindy Tautfest reveals the raw and unfettered details of her own chilling encounter in a place of isolating, utter darkness known as The Void. The wife of a Southern Baptist minister, her expectations of a joyous homecoming full of all-encompassing love were shattered when she was instead met with a devastating experience for which she could have never been prepared. Fighting to escape the desolate outer darkness where she had been cast, she would return only to find herself in an equally harsh world with the memories and physical repercussions of death lingering over her as an ever-present shadow.
After enduring further setbacks which once again landed her in the hospital, Mindy began making funeral arrangements and took a family vacation to Roswell to fulfill one of her last dying wishes. Instead of the trip being the expected somber farewell, what followed was a miraculous turn of events which propelled her on an internal journey of spiritual growth and divine healing. In this eye-opening book, her research into the Distressing Near-Death Experience phenomenon highlights the major correlations previously found between UFO and Near-Death Experiencers during the Omega Project and takes them a step further, describing them in detail as she personally experienced them. Highlighted are the aspects of the Encounter Prone Personality perceived during childhood, as well as a collection of commonly reported after-effects which consistently result in a positive transformation wherein the experiencer seeks to use their newfound abilities to inform and elevate humanity.
Mindy Tautfest is a published author, speaker, television personality, and the curator of the Hayden C. Hewes International UFO Bureau (IUFOB). Founded out of Oklahoma City in 1957, the IUFOB most famously investigated the Heaven’s Gate Cult, the Aurora Texas Crash and Burial Site, and the massive 1965 UFO Flap over the central United States. Of great historical importance, President Jimmy Carter submitted the original, hand written report of his 1969 UFO sighting to Hayden’s bureau, and a copy of the IUFOB report now hangs in the Carter Presidential Library in Atlanta, GA. In 2023, Tautfest recovered the IUFOB files and has been working to digitize and preserve all documents from these incredible investigations.
An Oklahoma native, she got her start while investigating hauntings in the Sooner State in search of answers to her own mystifying experiences. In the past, Mindy has worked as an ICU Nurse with ACLS certification on assignments across the nation and has volunteered her time to Disaster Relief efforts including the Colorado Black Forest Fires, Hurricane Katrina, and the devastating May 3,1999 Moore Tornado. Tautfest now volunteers her time working with the Mutual UFO Network. In this capacity, she serves as the Dean of MUFON University, the Oklahoma State Director of MUFON, and a member of the Experiencer Resource Team. Her investigation of the 1975 Miracle Mountains Schoolyard Encounter was designated as MUFON’s Top Case of Interest in 2021, and she was featured on Season 19, Episode 5 of Ancient Aliens speaking about the mass sighting.
In 2016, Tautfest suffered a brain aneurysm resulting in a Near Death Experience where she found herself in a place known as the Void. Although traditionally thought of as a separate phenomenon, recent studies have discovered that up to a staggering 55% of UFO Experiencers also report having had a Near Death Experience. This is a little understood statistic, but Mindy’s personal encounter with the Near Death phenomenon combined with years of investigations into UFO encounters, places her in a unique position to understand the underlying connections and after effects seen as a result of these enigmatic events. Her book, Dying To Meet Them, chronicling her incredible journey from NDE to UAP is due out in August of 2023.

The Fast Movers and How to Capture Them on Film
Bill Spicer is a UFO/UAP researcher who uses a fascinating technique of capturing photos and videos of UFO/UAP Craft with digital cameras since 2009.
Bill is a co-author of the book titled: “The Fast Movers: Evidence of High-Speed UFOs/UAPs “ ©2020
Bill has presented multiple times to groups and individuals a unique viewing technique called Quantum UFO Observation Technique, used to see “The Fast Movers”, UAP/UFO craft. This technique when practiced, using simple protocols, will allow the observer to see and interact with the Quantum Consciousness Field/Quantum Electrodynamics Vacuum (QED) that surrounds us. This field, "sentience or awareness of internal or external existence", is at play within the Quantum Vacuum as a part of the properties of nature, that include harmonic frequencies of light, or thought projections (holographic) coming through the veil. By doing so, it allows the observer to interact with other conscious, non-human intelligent beings and their craft, that exist outside our three-dimensional space-time frequency. The UFOs/UAPs can become corporeal (physical) in our 3rd Dimension when a purpose is required.
By using this viewing technique, Bill has assisted others with the awakening process so that they may understand their experiences by contact with a non-human intelligence, and related paranormal contact experiences. The contact, “Contact Modalities”, may include contact by: Near Death Experiences (NDEs), Out of Body Experiences (OBEs), UFO visitations, Meditation, Remote Viewing, Lucid Dreams, etc. These experiences form “The Modern Miracles”.

The Sacred Feminine: Her Secrets, Suppression & Resurrection
Hayley Ramsey is an author, researcher, and tour guide with a passion for history, esotericism and travel. She currently leads tours around the world investigating the mysteries of the past pertaining to megalithic sites, the Knights Templar, King Arthur and the Holy Grail. Her new book "The Bringer of Life: A Cosmic History of the Divine Feminine" was just released in March 2023.
Who and what is the divine feminine? What does She represent, and where can She be found? Hayley Ramsey starts at the beginning of time itself and explains the origins of goddess veneration and follows Her history chronologically through the rise and fall of civilizations around the world. How did the worship of the goddess affect society? What caused the shift from matriarchal society to a patriarchal society? What was the relationship between religions such as Christianity and the suppression of the goddess? Ramsey will examine the connections between Mary Magdalene, Jesus, and the Holy Grail while considering the importance of astrological precession. Many believe that She disappeared, but perhaps Her veneration went underground. Ramsey proposes the goddess and Her followers never disappeared, but instead She became shrouded in allegory and symbolism by different secret societies that still exist today. Is there a connection between the medieval Knights Templar, the divine feminine, and modern Freemasonry? Her secrets and symbols have been used to reveal Her presence to those who know where to look for many millennia, but just what exactly are these symbols and where does one find Her today?

Maureen Richmond, PhD
The Astrology of Ufology and Paranormality
Maureen Richmond is a MUFON Field Investigator as well as a professional astrologer and lifelong student of parapsychology. She has combined her interests in UFOs, the paranormal, and astrological influence to produce a new look at the hidden factors at play during UFO encounters and other paranormal experiences.
With astrological charts cast for UFO sightings, moments of contact, near death experiences, spirit journeys, out-of-body experiences, poltergeist phenomena, hauntings, and cryptid sightings, Richmond brings to consideration the workings of the astrological archetypes as formative forces operating in the background of human experience. Her research results suggest that moments in time defined by astrological arrangements often function as portals in consciousness leading to dimensions other than the conventional.
Maureen has been active in metaphysics and spirituality since the 1970s. She has studied research design in both the academic and applied contexts, with a particular interest in the work of parapsychological pioneer, J.B. Rhine and his legacy. She has lectured for the American Federation of Astrologers, Riverside Astrologers of Memphis, Aquarian Astrologers of Kansas City, the National Council of Geocosmic Research, the Rhine Research Center of Durham, NC, Meditation Mount of Ojai, CA, the Ancient Mystical Order of the Rose and Cross, the Quapaw Quarter Association of Little Rock, AR, and the American Academy of Religion on esoteric and astrological topics.
Maureen’s Ph.D. is from Arkansas State University in Heritage Studies, a multidisciplinary field covering history, historic preservation, museum studies, and folklore. She is the author of two astrologically-themed novels, Cathedral of Capricorn and The Scholars of Sagittarius, as well as a nonfiction study of Paganism, and numerous astrological essays on the psychospiritual influence of fixed stars like Sirius. Reports on her work correlating UFO encounters with astrological factors can be found at her website, The Astrology of World Events at https://maureenrichmond.substack.com/.
