QUESTING AND MORE
year's Psychic Questing Weekender is
about quantum questing - understanding what happens in psychic questing using
the theory of quantum science. Quantum might sound a scary word, but all it implies
is that which underlies the structure of matter, energy and information, and how
this is affected by the process of consciousness.
is behind everything from telepathy to remote viewing, clairvoyance, clairaudience,
results magic, past lives, psychometry, artefact retrieval, and communication
with spirits and UFO intelligences. It might also explain Rupert Sheldrake's idea
of a morphogenetic field behind rapid changes in evolution, and even contact with
trans-dimensional intelligences and distant stars.
entanglement courtesy of Ravi's
key to quantum questing is entanglement, or non-locality, "spooky action
at a distance" as Albert Einstein called it. And entanglement is no mere
theory. Today there exist quantum computers that utilise the principles of entanglement.
They are so sensitive that no one can see them working, otherwise it will affect
the results of any problem being solved. If this is not getting to the root of
the paranormal, then I don't know what is.
will tell you how to adopt a quantum approach to life, where you will quite literally
see the world through different eyes.
way of exploring the mechanics of quantum questing, we explore the decade and
a half of work that I have undertaken in the company of esoteric book dealer and
psychic extraordinaire Richard Ward. Working also with my wife Sue Collins, this
has involved the psychic retrieval of a number of puzzling artefacts.
shall start the proceedings by telling the story of the discovery of a small brass
box with four angel heads in relief on its lid. This strange artefact was retrieved
from Danbury churchyard, Essex, in 2002 under the most mysterious of circumstances.
only was the box's discovery predicted by psychic means, but its very existence
and description were created by us beforehand. Such a thing is impossible to understand
using the standard laws of physics, although evoke entanglement, higher dimensions
and a little warping of reality and anything becomes possible.
will set the scene for a weekend that will amaze and enthral.

the many quests explored will be the story behind our team's pursuit of the Holy
Grail in 2001-2002, the story featured in my book Twenty-first Century Grail,
published in 2004. This provided a pretty realistic view of our questing activities
at the time, but where the book ends the quest really got started.
ends in Rennes-le-Chateau in southern France where we decipher medieval clues
to a mystery never before explored by researchers in this field involving the
burial in the fourteenth century of the head of St John the Baptist, arguably
one of the greatest treasures of the Knight Templar. It throws an entirely different
perspective on the Rennes-le-Chateau mystery, and makes sense of an awful lots
of disparate ends left unanswering.|
Century Grail (2004)
Book of the Gates of Knowledge
featured on the Saturday will be the Herefordshire Rings Quest and Fool Sketch
of 1996-97 (ever heard the one about me putting my underpants on my head in The
Bridge Inn, Kentchurch). It features an enigmatic trickster figure of folklore
named Jack o'Kent, as well as an incredible visit to John Dee's home in Wales
and a bizarre church on the Island of Anglesey in search of the lost secrets of
of Gaza (1643-1680)
quest also involves the strange story of how Nathan of Gaza, a seventeenth century
prophet, theologian and cabbalist, came to be our spirit guide, and how we found
ourselves on a quest to locate a book supposedly written by him called the Sepher
ha-Sha'are ha-Daath, "the Book of the Gates of Knowledge". It also
involves a strange meeting with someone, who was creating the story of our quest,
even though he knew nothing of our quest! It's a weird tale that only makes sense
using the concept of entanglement.
top of this, Richard Ward will introduce his own world of psychic questing: how
he got into the subject, his first ever questing work, and what the subject means
to him today.
top of this, attendees can take part in a double artefact retrieval in the darkness
on the Saturday evening. Two magically charged artefacts will be deposited inside
Avebury's henge, and all you need to do is use your psychic skills to find them.
So make sure you bring a flashlight and some warm clothes!
Questing Take Over
the Sunday we have something different. We are inviting regular participants of
the Psychic Questing Weekender to deliver their own mini talk on some aspect of
psychic questing. It can anything from its philosophy, mechanics, results, or
you want to give a talk apply by email to Andrew via andrewcollins.com, giving
a brief outline of the proposed talk, which in theory should last around 15 minutes
those confirmed to talk include:
Nugent, the webmaster
of psychicquesting.com, which has
been flying the flag for psychic questing for the past 10 years. He will deliver
a talk called "The Trickster & Psychic Questing", which will feature
the archetype of the trickster archetype both as a character, godform and archetype,
showing his links with Hermes, the |
ufology; quantum theory, and how all these can be applied to successful psychic
questing pursuits. He investigates whether the power of the Trickster can be harnessed
to produce dramatic results within a questing context.
graduating in Psychology from University College Dublin, Simon was well on his
way to becoming a Jungian analyst. Then the Trickster intervened and he now runs
a software company and the psychicQuesting.com
Andrews, a regular attendee of the Psychic Questing Weekender, looks at the
the subject's theoretical framework. He takes a systematic approach to "magical
technology", which has evolved out of his own questing experiences. Richard
will introduce a theoretical model applicable to questing activity, developed
alongside his questing |
based on an adaptation of environmental psychology, and drawing upon the work
of Andrew Collins, Tom Graves, Peter Carroll, Lionel Snell, Gareth Knight, Michael
Harner and Paul Devereux amongst others.
Richard Andrews has studied environmental
psychology and heritageinterpretation at postgraduate level, and has been on a
solo quest for many years, an account of which he intends to publish soon (although
he's been saying that for almost as many years).
will also be short talks from psychic questing stalwarts Caroline Wise, on the
impact of apports (objects emerging out of thin air) to psychic quests, and Paul
Weston, author of essential questing volume Avalonian
Aeon and other books.|
we shall also have a panel debate with some familiar faces from psychic questing,
plus the speakers of the day, who will debate where psychic questing goes from
finally, on the Sunday afternoon we shall visit a place of ancient power locally.
Last year it was the Devil's Den dolmen on Preschute Down, a memorable experience
for all. This year it will be another great site in the Avebury landscape.
