A Conscious Life and Sustainable World
Conscious Life Conference & Expo 2008

By Stephen McCrory


We are living in an evolving universe and in an orgasmic nuclear dance of consciousness. Everything is changing, progressing and transforming. Wise men and women throughout history have tried to define the nature of the reality in which we find ourselves. A myriad of models have existed, most of which have fallen into the historical garbage heap while others are still clinging on by a thread.

A new generation of spiritual communities and world-renowned individuals are co-creating a new model and are pushing through new boundaries we didn’t believe possible in the past. Is it all figured out and defined? No. Do we know some of the elements of what this future model might look like? Yes.

The primary intention of the Conscious Life Conference and Exposition www.consciouslifeexpo.com  is to participate in the conscious co-creation of a new world; a world based on new paradigms in science, spirituality and global community. This three-day celebration of evolution and consciousness brings with it a number of brainstorming sessions, lectures and panel discussions from many cutting-edge leaders in the conscious living arena. This event will help develop, implement and elaborate who we are, where we are, and where we are going in the future.

This experience will be a gateway to a higher force for anyone who wants to catapult themselves to higher state of consciousness. Expo executive producer, Robert Quicksilver, has continued his visionary tradition of producing the Conscious Life Expo in Los Angeles for six years. It has developed into one of the largest mind, body spirit and paranormal shows in Southern California and brings together many major national and international speakers and thousands of participants.

Confirmed speakers to date include: Byron Katie, founder of The Work. Eckhart Tolle, author of “The Power of Now,” says, “The Work is like a razor-sharp sword that cuts through illusion and enables you to know for yourself the timeless essence of your being.” Dr. Raymond Moody, world-renowned author, scholar and researcher, is the leading authority on the ‘near-death experience’’ NDE a phrase he coined in the late seventies.

With all the buzz surrounding conscious films, this year’s expo includes Gay Hendricks. Dr. Hendricks received a Ph.D. in counseling psychology from Stanford in 1974. After a twenty-one-year career as a professor at the University of Colorado, he founded The Hendricks Institute, which offers seminars in North America, Asia and Europe. Along with movie producer Stephen Simon, Dr. Hendricks founded The Spiritual Cinema Circle, which distributes inspirational movies to subscribers in 70+ countries around the world.

Peaceful Warrior, Dan Millman is a former world-champion athlete, university coach, martial arts instructor, and college professor. “Way of the Peaceful Warrior,” “Wisdom of the Peaceful Warrior,” “The Life You Were Born to Live,” “No Ordinary Moments” and The Journeys of Socrates” have inspired millions of readers in 29 languages. The feature film, “Peaceful Warrior,” starring Nick Nolte, is based upon Dan’s first book and his early life.

Some other popular speakers include: Beyond Karma Queen, radio host and acclaimed writer Vaishali. Having worn the color purple and a ‘tiara’ for the last 12 years, her sense of humor and uniqueness have resonated with and inspired many audiences nationwide. Vaishali has appeared on national radio and TV stations including, Oprah & Friends.

In the area of the paranormal, healing psychic medium Linda Drake will be conducting an open forum helping you to contact your personal spirit guides. Her work in the area of death and grieving has helped comfort tens of thousands and taught them how to embrace the transition from this world to the next. Rose McGowan, actress on the TV series “Charmed,” says “Linda Drake is the REAL thing.”

Many more internationally-known speakers include: Ex-NASA scientist Richard Hoagland, whose new book “Dark Mission: The Secret History of NASA,” is an Amazon bestseller. And speaking of bestsellers, NY Times #1 bestseller and afterlife expert Dannion Brinkley, who was struck by lightning and clinically dead for 28 minutes, will be speaking along with Americas top-rated night-time show radio host George Noory of Coast to Coast AM.
