Note from Rick Stack
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 9 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 recorded as audio plus onscreen whiteboard for photos, text, powerpoint presentations, 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.

These Seth conferences will endeavor to help each participant to:
- Understand the source of your being and join with the spontaneous inner self.
- Become skillful and effective co-creators with All That Is and create your ideal life.
- Experience reality without impediments.
- Explore inner reality & move forward in working with dreams, and lucid dreams.
- Tune into what Seth refers to as the “higher intellect” and operate from “The Magical Approach.”
- Connect with people of like mind
- Have loads of fun while doing all of the above!
Here’s what people are saying about the Global Seth Conference
"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

Dr. Nan Lu
Dr. Nan Lu (and Grand Master of Qigong), is founding director and president of the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) World Foundation, the country’s foremost educational organization for traditional Chinese medicine. He credits much of his deep understanding to the Seth materials and applies these teachings when guiding patients and students. As Grand Master of Wu Ming Qigong, he is a lineage holder of ancient knowledge not found in today’s textbooks. He has devoted his life to preserving the unique body–mind–spirit wisdom of TCM and Wu Ming Qigong. A longtime TCM practitioner, his mission is to help patients and his Qigong students discover their healing abilities and the effect of consciousness in everyday health. Dr. Lu’s latest book is Digesting the Universe: A Revolutionary Framework for Healthy Metabolism Function, a major work that addresses the multidimensional aspects of today’s chronic health issues. He holds a doctorate in traditional Chinese medicine from Hubei College (University) of TCM, China, and is a clinical associate professor at the State University of New York (SUNY) at Stony Brook, School of Social Welfare.
DAVID CIELAK is a frequent presenter at the US and European conferences of the International Association for the Study of Dreams (IASD). His presentations often focus on Seth’s teachings in the area of dreams and his most recent presentation was on Seth, Dreams and Health. Dave has been studying the Seth material since the 1970’s when the book Seth Speaks literally fell off a bookstore shelf into his lap. He credits Seth’s concepts and dream state practices to helping him achieve success in building large scale social welfare organizations which have helped thousands of disabled and disadvantaged people to obtain and maintain employment. Dave has facilitated and co-led Seth focused dream groups both on line and in person and is the Program Director of New Awareness Network Inc.
Dr. Tieng Shen-Hsu
Dr. Tien-Sheng Hsu is the founder of the rapidly expanding Taiwan Seth Education Foundation, with branches throughout Asia. He worked as a specialist in family medicine at the Renai branch of Taipei City Hospital but transferred to psychiatry to gain a deeper understanding of how the human psyche affects the body. After being a psychiatrist at Taipei City Psychiatric Center, he became the director of the mental health department at Taipei County Hospital. He currently runs the Seth Holistic Clinic in Taipei which treats mental and physical illness using Seth’s concepts and principles. The many people who have dramatically improved or healed themselves with the aid of what they learned from Dr Hsu, (and from their own subsequent study of the Seth material) have resulted in a burgeoning interest in the Seth material throughout Asia. As a result of Dr Hsu’s work, tens of thousands of people have been introduced to the Seth material and Seth Study groups and lectures continue on an ongoing basis in Malaysia, mainland China, Hong Kong and throughout Taiwan. Dr Hsu is the author of over 13 books and established a publishing company in Taiwan which is in the process of publishing all of the Seth books in Mandarin.
Glen Payne initially studied in the fields of biochemistry and microbiology, moving on to a 25 year career in Information Technology. During this time he presented at numerous IT conferences, receiving several ‘best paper’ awards. He has been a student of the Seth material since 1975 and has a particular interest in how modern cosmology is validating Seth’s explanation of the universe. Glen is co-founder of Seth Network Australia and an advocate for connecting the global community of Seth readers.
Irene O’Garden has been consciously creating a rich multidimensional artistic life since discovering Seth and Jane in 1981. She has won or been nominated for prizes in nearly every writing category from stage to e-screen, hardcovers, as well as literary magazines and anthologies. Her critically-acclaimed play Women On Fire, (Samuel French) played sold-out houses at Off-Broadway’s Cherry Lane Theatre and was nominated for a Lucille Lortel Award. O’Garden won a Pushcart Prize for her lyric essay “Glad To Be Human,” (Untreed Reads.) Harper published her first memoir Fat Girl; her second, Risking the Rapids: How My Wilderness Journey Healed My Childhood is forthcoming from Mango (February, 2019) Harper also published her best selling and award-winning children's books. Irene's poems and essays have been featured in dozens of literary journals and award-winning anthologies. Fulcrum, (Nirala, 2017) is her first poetry collection. Irene is also a Poetry Educator with the Hudson Highlands chapter of the national River Of Words program, connecting children to nature via poetry and art. She and her husband writer John Pielmeier have lived joyfully together for over 40 years.
Mary Dillman has dedicated the past 12 years to researching and helping to organize the original manuscripts, journals and papers of Jane Roberts that are archived at Yale University. Her work for the benefit of current and future scholars of the Seth material includes ongoing interviews with friends and associates of Jane Roberts and Rob Butts, including former ESP class members. These interviews, as well as documents and audio tapes, are forming an ancillary collection for eventual use by other researchers. In her presentations Mary enjoys sharing her discoveries along with her adventures and insights from using the Jane/Rob/Seth ideas in her own life.
Virginia Bennett, Ph. D. is a clinical psychologist with a private practice in Berkeley, California. In addition to being a professor of graduate level psychology, she has a doctorate in parapsychology, and has specialized in the use of hypnosis for 25 years. She has worked—and played—with the Seth material for forty years. Personally and professionally, she has sought an integration of mainstream psychology and metaphysical explorations, including past life regressions, lucid dreaming, altered states, and probable realities. Ranging from a theoretical view of our multidimensionality, to a grounded application of creating a life worth living, she is ever guided by Seth’s comment, “If it isn’t fun, stop doing it?”
Rick Stack was a friend and student of Seth & Jane Roberts and personally attended over 100 Seth sessions given in Jane Roberts' classes in Elmira, NY. He is the President of New Awareness Network Inc., SethCenter.com, and publisher/editor of The Seth Audio Collection, The Seth Material, The Early Sessions (Books 1-9 of the Seth Material), The Personal Sessions, and other books by Jane Roberts. Author of "Out Of Body Adventures" (Contemporary Books 1988), he has been teaching courses and workshops on the Seth material, dreams, out of body experiences, parapsychology and consciousness studies throughout the United States and abroad for 38 years. He has appeared on numerous radio and television shows including Coast to Coast with George Noury. Over a 20 year period Rick worked with Jane's husband Rob Butts on the publication of previously unpublished Seth material. His current projects include being on the board of advisors for The World Peace Foundation, and a global outreach program to educate and introduce people to the Seth material (http://sethlearningcenter.org/ and http://sethinstitute.com/)
Robert Waggoner is the author of "Lucid Dreaming: Gateway to the Inner Self," and a past President of the International Association for the Study of Dreams (IASD). For the last ten years, he has been co-editor of the online magazine, "The Lucid Dream Exchange," the only ongoing publication devoted specifically to lucid dreaming. Robert frequently speaks on lucid dreaming at national and international dream conferences, workshops and college classrooms.
Barrie Gellis is a former member of Jane Roberts’ ESP class (one of the NY boys) and was referred to as "our poet" by Seth in the 10-31-71 class. He has written more than 4000 poems, including his poetry book "Outside is a Secret Key," and his poems have appeared in Sue Watkins’ book, “Conversations With Seth.” He has done various radio interviews as well as presentations at various Seth conferences, is the most active Seth class member on online message boards, and had hosted a bimonthly cyber Seth chat for 10 years. Barrie has a book coming out in Germany and Switzerland to be called “The Seth World View - Questions And Answers, Essays And Poems.” He was formerly a high school English Teacher for 20 years; and trained as a conflict resolution/peer mediation specialist. He has also produced two public access TV shows for QPTV in Queens, NY. His presentation for this conference will highlight the far-reaching, deep significance of Seth's concept that we are all innately loving, compassionate and good.
Ejay Jamb is a woman of many talents. Her varied career has included being a librarian, an accounts manager, a writer, a poet and a teacher of martial arts, yoga and vegetarian cooking. Being a humorist, she sees the funny side of life and laughingly describes herself as irreverent. She is also the creator and online administrator for Seth Network Australia (https://www.facebook.com/groups/535826089883587/).Ejay is committed to supporting Seth readers make sense of what is often considered ‘dense’ information.
Dr. Leslie Ellis is a teacher, writer and psychotherapist. She has a PhD in Clinical Psychology from the Chicago School of Professional Psychology and a Masters from Pacific Graduate Institute. She is adjunct faculty at Adler University and a Certifying Coordinator with The Focusing Institute.
ANNIE KAGAN is the author of the acclaimed book, The Afterlife of Billy Fingers: How My Bad Boy Brother Proved to Me There is Life After Death, one of the most detailed and profound ADC's (After Death Communications) ever recorded. When her brother Billy died unexpectedly and began speaking to her from the afterlife, Annie agreed to accompany him on his journey through the mysteries of death. As Billy reaches from the “other side” to change his sister’s life and the lives of those around her, he shares his continuing education about the joy and wonder to come in the afterlife.
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.
