Dream Detective Who Notified US Government About 9/11 Two Weeks Before The Event Coming to TansitionTalks

There’s only one person in the world who started dreaming about the 9/11 attack six months before it happened . . . and notified the US embassy in London of the impending disaster two weeks before that fateful day.

The Americans didn’t listen, but they should have. For Christopher Robinson was the man that British Intelligence and Scotland Yard depended on to dream about the future and notify them of upcoming IRA bombing plans. They depended on Chris because he never missed telling them when and where an upcoming attack would take place. He has anticipated plane crashes days before the event, found deceased crime victims, found missing persons that the police couldn’t locate (and told me in the morning, with extraordinary accuracy, what was going to happen in that afternoon)!

Chris’s amazing ability to dream about the future in terms that can be reliably translated into people, times, places and activities has been the subject of books, major university scientific studies, films, articles, TV shows and just about all forms of media.

He has taught many people how to dream about the future and, through his advanced intuitive capabilities, helped thousands to understand how to deal with seemingly impossible personal situations. He is also a healer, having on numerous occasions led people with supposedly terminal conditions to eliminate those issues and return to a healthy life.

There is no one in the world that has the fascinating background (undercover police work, etc.), coupled with the amazing personal gifts that Chris does and he’s coming from London especially to be with us to tell his story, explain his dreaming technique, demonstrate his healing modality and tell us what he thinks is on the horizon, in one very memorable Saturday afternoon on April 27th in Berkeley Springs.

As an added bonus, Chris will be available for personal consultations on Sunday the 28th. If you are interested in booking one of these 55 minute sessions, call John Petersen at 703-623-1944. The charge will be $125.

Here’s a video about Chris that will give you a taste of this extraordinary man.


Come to Berkeley Springs on Saturday, the 27th of April to hear Christopher Robinson and stay around for the reception afterwards to meet him personally. See also: Interview with Chris Robinson about his upcoming talk.

Christopher Robinson was born in England in August 1951. His dreams of future events began to become more frequent at the age of 10 after he underwent surgery for a cardiac issue. He was featured in an episode of a 1990s British supernatural TV show called "Strange but True." He had dreamed of a crash at an air show and then traveled to the actual air show. In his dream, the pilots had survived the crash because they had parachuted out of the planes. When he attended the show, it happened in real life. He had called the police to warn them and although they had doubted him at first, the event caused them to question whether to take him seriously or not.

The 9/11 Nightmare

After this event, he was in contact with the police and kept them informed of his foreboding dreams. He had a nightmare on Aug. 5, 2001, about a plane crashing into a large building in New York City. In his notes, he described being in a plane that was hijacked and then flown into two large tower blocks. He wrote about the chaos and the many people who died in the tragedy.

At the time, Chris was visiting the United States to undergo precognitive experiments at the University of Arizona. In these experiments, he was taken to random locations throughout the area without knowing where he was heading. He predicted details from all of these locations in his dreams from the previous night.

He had reported the dreams but the professor was skeptical about his abilities and more focused on the study and had not taken the nightmare seriously. When he returned to the U.K., he had increasingly intense dreams about the plane crashing into buildings in New York City.

He continued to record these dreams and to make drawings of the buildings. He told the police about the dreams, and on September 9, 2001, he wrote a letter to the U.S. Embassy in London to warn them of a serious threat to the country. In 2002, the Secret Service took him in for further experiments. The findings have not been published.

Scientists still can't explain where this ability comes from, but his case is certainly a fascinating mystery that makes you truly wonder about the psychic power of dreams.

The Hope and Promise of Life

In the face of extraordinary, systemic, ongoing change in almost every area of life, courageous whistle-blower Tom Drake brings a personal, first-hand perspective of how the freedoms most all Americans have taken for granted have been eliminated by powerful government agencies – which threaten the very essence of the principles upon which America was built. Very few people in the world are able to illuminate the inner workings of the surveillance state like Drake is able to.

From his deeply personal and professional experience as a human being and as former senior executive with the National Security Agency (NSA), Tom Drake comes to TransitionTalks to address how, shortly after 9/11, he witnessed massive fraud and abuse, as well as a vast government mass surveillance program involving widespread violations of the Constitution and our privacy rights. He will highlight how he was turned into an Enemy of the State and charged with crimes of state under the Espionage Act for reporting crimes committed by the state. He will also discuss what it really meant to face down many decades in prison and keep his precious freedoms and individual liberties.

Tom will share the extraordinary charges brought against him as an American exposing government wrongdoing and illegalities and why his ordeal is symptomatic of the rising power of the national security state since 9/11 and its direct assaults on freedom of speech (including speaking truth to and about power), association, thought, innovation, and privacy. He will bring Orwell’s 1984 alive and what it was like to live in such a dystopian world on a very personal level and why he is now so dedicated to the defense of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness — for all of us.

But there is also hope and promise as we all live on an extraordinary planet called Earth swirling through time and space in a huge place we call the Universe. Drawing deeply from his own unique background and life-altering events, Mr. Drake will lead a discussion delving more deeply into what really matters in the sublime miracle of life and the phenomena of our unique human ‘beingness’ as the heart of our existence with a look beyond the horizon — placing linear and non-linear events, technology, people, governments and society in a larger context while finding the meaning and the living connections within us, and making sense of them — as the future called tomorrow manifests into the present of today and explore a key question we all face: What future do we want to meet, greet and keep?

Come hear and meet this extraordinarily courageous and principled man!

Thomas Drake is a former senior executive at the National Security Agency where he blew the whistle on massive multi-billion dollar fraud, waste and abuse; the widespread violations of the rights of citizens through secret mass surveillance programs after 9/11; and critical 9/11 intelligence failures. As retaliation and reprisal, the Obama Administration indicted Drake in 2010 in a signature criminal case as the first whistleblower since Daniel Ellsberg charged with espionage, turning him into an “Enemy of the State.” Drake faced 35 years in prison, for keeping allegiance to his oath to support and defend the US Constitution and the inalienable rights and freedoms of citizens. In 2011, the US government’s case against him collapsed and he went free in a plea deal. The US joint DoJ/DNI National Insider Threat Task Force recently labeled Mr. Drake “self-radicalized.” He is the recipient of the 2011 Ridenhour Truth Telling Prize, a joint recipient with Jesselyn Radack of the 2011 Sam Adams Associates Integrity in Intelligence Award and the 2012 Hugh M. Hefner First Amendment Award. He is now dedicated to the defense of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

A FULL DAY WITH GREGG BRADEN

NEURONS, BONES AND ROBOTS: THE BATTLE TO PRESERVE OUR HUMANNESS

Recent advances in robotics, virtual reality and artificial intelligence, are blurring the boundary between pure human and human / machine hybrids. For the first time since we mysteriously appeard on earth 200,000 years ago, we are forced to make a choice that sounds like the plot of a science fiction movie—the choice to either preserve the unique characteristics that give us our humanness, or to give in to the temptation of power and efficiency made possible by human / machine hybrids. Beyond these two choices, however, new discoveries revealing a deeper human potential tell us there is another option.

A growing body of scientific evidence has overturned 150 years of thinking when it comes to our origin, capabilities and, perhaps most importantly, our potential. The bottom line: Modern humans appeared on earth 200,000 years ago with the extraordinary abilities offered by artificial intelligence, and more, already in place rather than developing these abilities slowly and gradually over a long period of time.

These discoveries reveal the third choice for human evolution—to develop and maximize the potential that’s been with us from the time of our origin. It’s this pure and uniquely human potential that reveals the deepest truths of our existence and exceeds the capabilities of chip implants and robotic bodies.

Highlights Of This Program Include:
  • The ancient DNA evidence that overturns+ 150 years of mainstream thinking when it comes to our origin, and the role of evolution in our lives.
  • Paradigm-shifting discoveries currently not shared in the mainstream—discoveries that catapult us beyond the conventional thinking when it comes to our potential to create extraordinary states of physical and emotional health and healing.
  • Time-tested and easy-to-use techniques to: *Access advanced brain states and super-human potentials. *Harmonize the heart and brain to evoke advanced states of consciousness and deep intuition On-Demand.
  • Optimize your longevity response, immune response and physical / emotional resilience response to the growing demands of life extremes.
We owe it to ourselves to embrace the new evidence, the story it tells, and the healing that it can bring to our lives. For the first time in the history of science, we’re writing a new human story that gives us new reasons to think of ourselves in a new, empowered and evolutionary light. When new discoveries prove that the existing human story is no longer based in fact, it’s time to change the story. This simple truth is at the heart of "Bones, Blood and Artificial Intelligence".

Gregg Braden is a five-time New York Times best-selling author, researcher, educator, lecturer and internationally renowned as a pioneer bridging modern science, ancient wisdom, and human potential.

From 1979 to 1990 Gregg worked as a problem solver during times of crisis for Fortune 500 companies including Cisco Systems and Martin Marietta Aerospace. He continues problem-solving today as he merges modern science and the wisdom of our past to reveal real-world solutions to the issues that challenge our lives. His research has led to 12 award-winning books now published in over 40 languages.

Gregg has presented his discoveries in over 30 countries on six continents and has been invited to speak to The United Nations, Fortune 500 companies and the U. S. military. The United Kingdom’s Watkins Journal lists Gregg among the top 100 of “the world’s most spiritually influential living people” for the 5th consecutive year, and he is a 2019 nominee for the prestigious Templeton Award, established to honor “outstanding individuals who have devoted their talents to expanding our vision of human purpose and ultimate reality.” Website: greggbraden.com
