If you are still around on Sunday morning join us for a Seth Stroll in Central Park on Sunday April 7, 2019 (starting 10:30 AM) We are working on various possibilities for dinner or cocktails on Saturday Night and maybe Fri night too.
Yes, you can attend the conference by using your computer, smartphone or tablet, but, if you can make it, we’d love to see your physical self-participate too. So come on out and visit beautiful New York City in Spring 2019, or just join us from wherever you live around the globe and help us create the most joyful and fun Global Seth Conference in all of simultaneous history.
Greetings, I’m Rick Stack, President of New Awareness Network, Inc. and The Seth Educational Institute, and I’m proud to announce the 2019 Physical and Online Global Seth Conference. We did our first Seth Conference in New York City in 1988, and this one will be the 12th Seth conference that we have had the honor of producing. Our new mixture of physical and online events means that some of the conference presentations will be held live in New York City on Saturday April 6, 2019, and the rest will be held online starting Tuesday April 8 and continuing for a period of approximately seven (business) days.
As always, all presentations, whether physical or online, are recorded, and participants will have access to the recordings 24 hours a day throughout the conference and for a period of 6 months thereafter. So, if you can’t join us for the live portion of the conference in New York City, or miss some of the online webinars held the following week, you can view them all, online, at your convenience. The live day in NYC will be video recorded, and the online presentations will be either video, or audio plus onscreen whiteboard for photos, text and etc. Participants can use a computer, tablet, phone or smartphone to attend the online webinars, and to view the recordings of the physical and online portions of the conference.
We also want to add as much opportunity as possible for people to meet each other, connect and play, so we are working on activities along those lines. Plans so far include a free Seth walk in Central Park for conference attendees, on Sunday April 7th, starting around 10:30 AM. We are also working on putting together some optional dinner activities on Friday night April 5 and Saturday night April 6, and we will be providing registrants with updates on our progress in that area.
As always, we strive to bring you an exciting and top-notch group of authors and educators. Any presenters who are returning from prior years will have all new, and exciting presentations for us. For the live physical portion of the conference in New York City, we will have the great honor of hosting Dr. Tien-Sheng Hsu as one of our presenters. Dr. Hsu is a highly respected author, medical doctor and psychiatrist in Taiwan who uses the Seth material as a main component of his practice. Among his many accomplishments, Dr. Hsu has founded a Holistic Seth Clinic that has treated thousands of people for a variety of physical and mental illnesses and has achieved “miraculous” results by teaching people to address the real cause of illness and heal themselves using the principles presented in the Seth Material.
Other presenters for the live day in New York City will include myself, our program director David Cielak, Robert Waggoner and Mary Dillman. See bios of all of our outstanding presenters by running your mouse over the presenter photos below.
For the online portion of the conference, we are very fortunate to be hosting Dr. Eben Alexander, a pioneering scientist and thought leader in consciousness studies, Dr.. Alexander is the author of the New York Times #1 bestseller Proof of Heaven, The Map of Heaven and Living in a Mindful Universe. Also joining us for the first time will be Annie Kagan, the bestselling author of “The Afterlife of Billy Fingers”. Annie’s brother Billy died unexpectedly and began speaking to her from the afterlife. As Billy reaches from the “other side” to change his sister’s life and the lives of those around her, he shares his ongoing learning about the bliss and wonder to come in the afterlife. Returning for the 2nd time we will have the great Dean Radin, Chief Scientist at The Institute of Noetic Science, author of 3 bestselling books and one of the leading frontier scientists in the area of Consciousness Studies and Parapsychology. Dean, who is well acquainted with the Seth material, was dubbed the “Einstein of parapsychology” by Larry Dossey, MD, and we will be discussing his latest work and how it connects with some of Seth’s teachings.
Now, here is something from Seth that I like to repeat in all of my conference descriptions. I began teaching classes on the Seth material in the late 1970’s and around that time Seth made a comment to me at Jane Robert’s class in Elmira, NY. Seth said, “So when I say to you let your classes thrill with quality, it is up to you to discover what quality means to you. And when I say to each of you, classes or no, that your lives be lives of quality, of beauty and of truth, I am not about to define beauty or truth for you. That is your challenge.” And, in the many Seth classes and workshops that I have taught over the past 40 years, I have tried to follow Seth’s advice. And now, I will try my best to make these conferences also “thrill with quality”.
These Seth conferences will endeavor to help each participant to:
"I have attended conferences for 25-30 years, and never got so much value for so little money...Astonishing scholarship and application of the Seth material..."Katharine Andrews, Mental Health and Medical Social work, Florida/Oregon
"This has truly been the best thing that has happened to me in a very long time - it has been an absolute GIFT! It helped me to gain more of a down-to-earth grasp of the Seth material... great insight, new information, greater understanding & original ways of viewing the material in the Seth books."Lea Gardiner, Florist, Sydney, Australia
"I'm grateful beyond words. Every presenter opened a new door inside of me, expanded my consciousness in ways that I did not expect. Being live and engaging with people from all over the globe was the most expansive experience I've had in this life."Cathleen Palumbo, Artist, New Mexico
"The Seth Conference has had a deep and lasting effect on my understanding of my real nature and my real power. Doors and windows have opened in my consciousness and freed my inner genie from the lamp. I feel a freedom in my mind, my heart and my body that I continue to relish."Kerry Harvey, Life Coach and Horsemanship Trainer, Tamworth, Australia

Hall read his first Seth book as a skeptic with the sole purpose of proving it was a complete nonsense and a hoax. Instead, he embarked on a lifetime of study. He attended Rick Stack’s NYC Seth class in the early 1980’s and is still a participant in Rick’s current NYC class. In 1992, Hall began a correspondence with Robert Butts, and then moved to New Haven, CT to study the then unpublished (now published) Seth material at the Yale University library. Hall then wrote to Rob about a life-changing breakthrough he’d made and Mr. Butts wrote back, “…Your letter is one of the most touching, moving ones I’ve ever received…You sound to me as though you’ve managed to cross a barrier not a lot of us surmount—Please let me congratulate you on your journey.” Hall is currently an actor and composer, living in New York City.
After decades as a physician and teacher at Harvard Medical School and elsewhere, renowned academic neurosurgeon DR. EBEN ALEXANDER thought he knew how the brain, mind, and consciousness worked. A transcendental Near-Death Experience (NDE) during a week-long coma from an inexplicable brain infection changed all of that – completely. He awoke with memories of a fantastic odyssey deep into another realm – more real than this earthly one! His experiences offer a crucial key to the understanding of reality and human consciousness. Dr Alexander’s NDE led him to become a pioneering scientist and thought leader in consciousness studies. He has been a guest on Dr. Oz, Oprah, and many other media programs. His most recent book, Living in a Mindful Universe: A Neurosurgeon’s Journey into the Heart of Consciousness, (co-authored with Karen Newell) has garnered accolades from many scientists around the world who study the mind-body question and the nature of consciousness. His earlier books, Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon's Journey into the Afterlife and The Map of Heaven: How Science, Religion, and Ordinary People Are Proving the Afterlife, have collectively spent more than two years atop the New York Times and international bestseller lists.
