Explaining the Paradigm Shift
It’s no secret our world is in the midst of significant change. The question is, where are we headed?

Steve McDonald is an extraordinary Australian thinker and researcher who arguably knows as much about the structure of the global planetary transition that we are experiencing as anyone on the planet. He draws coherent pictures from the deep insights of Clair W. Graves and paints clear, explanatory images of not only how humanity has evolved to this point, but what is inevitably on our horizon . . . and how this epic transition will continue to play out.

Steve’s operating structure and framework is an integrated, multidimensional one that synthesizes and explains what is happening now (in science, politics, geopolitics, attitude shifts, consciousness, values and perspectives) and what it is evolving into. This is inherently predictive and very enlightening, making clear why US politics is in disarray and the Middle East is chaotic . . . and science and technology is exploding, for example. This is a story about the very interworkings of the evolution of a new world and a new human.

The result? One of the clearest outlines of the emerging new world that you will find anywhere.

Come hear this message of hope that will help you make sense of all of the swirling change that is everywhere that we look. This will be a very powerful presentation that will pull away the curtains from the window that faces the path ahead.

Steve McDonald is currently writing a book about the global paradigm shift that’s taking us beyond the scientific-industrial era. Steve served with the Australian Army for 15 years, including war service as an infantry company commander in Somalia, 1993. He is also a qualified military helicopter pilot and on leaving the army he flew a rescue helicopter in the tropical Mackay-Whitsunday region of Queensland. Building upon his extensive experience in unpredictable environments, after retiring from flying Steve specialized as a change management consultant. He consequently studied the developmental psychology research of Dr Clare W Graves and became one of the first Australians qualified to teach Dr Graves’ theory under the banner of Spiral Dynamics Integral. A long-term struggle with posttraumatic stress has driven Steve’s deep interest in human nature and consciousness. He is a founder of Psychedelic Research in Science & Medicine, an Australian non-profit association. He is also a founder of AADII, a non-profit company created to support worldwide transformational change.

Fractal Time: The Secret of Our Future in the Cycles of Our Past

What would it mean to discover that life events—everything from our success and abundance to our betrayals and hurts—are based upon natural rhythms that can be known and predicted? Does an artifact from our ancient past hold the key to understanding nature’s cycles in our lives today? The recent discovery of Fractal Time now gives us everything we need to answer these questions, and more. Doing so, however, opens the door to even deeper mysteries!

*** ***

Ancient traditions viewed time as a never-ending dance of cycles—great waves of energy that rhythmically pulse across the universe. Each wave connects the past, present and future as a continuous rhythm that we see as our everyday lives. Our ancestors knew that the conditions of today are already etched into the past. They also knew that each cycle carries with it a choice point; the opportunity to heal unhealthy patterns of hurt, suffering and conflict. Today, modern science seems to agree. A growing body of scientific evidence suggests that time waves, and the history they carry, do, in fact, repeat as cycles of experience. The key is that if we know how to look into the past, we discover what to expect when the cycles repeat in our lives today.

In this compelling synthesis of ancient civilizations, cycles of time, love and everyday life, Gregg Braden crosses the traditional boundaries of science and ancient wisdom to give us a rare glimpse into our ancestor’s wisdom. In doing so, we gain a healthy perspective of world events, as well as personal relationships: how to read them, and how to heal the unhealthy patterns that may have hurt and defeated us in the past. Gregg’s background as an earth scientist, senior computer systems designer and explorer of ancient civilizations led him to recognize the mathematic key used by our ancestors to track vast cycles of time. When he merged the ancient views of a rhythmic universe (cycles) with the modern discoveries of nature’s patterns (fractals) Gregg recognized nature’s model of time—fractal time—and created the calculator that makes it useful in our lives. From the war and peace between nations to the abundance, success and deepest hurts of our most intimate relationships, fractal time tells us what to expect when the personal and global patterns return, and how to recognize when the choices in our lives can be the most potent.

Join Gregg in this rare, multimedia event as he shares recent discoveries and true-life accounts to demonstrate the power of Fractal Time in our lives. Discover for yourself:
  • How every cycle offers a window of opportunity to change the patterns of the past—a choice point—for new and healthy ways of thinking and living.
  • The community-key to thrive during our cycle of extremes!
  • The power and accuracy of the Time Code Calculator, including the pilot study that revealed the conditions for September 11, 2001 before it occurred.
  • The “Hot Dates” that hold the greatest opportunities for peace, the greatest threat of conflict, and the keys to recognizing the economic cycles in our future!
  • How you can apply Fractal Time on a personal level to find your choice points of love, trust, betrayal, and success!
The better we know ourselves, and our world, the better equipped we are for whatever life brings our way. It’s this simple fact that lies at the core of this new program: Fractal Time

BIOGRAPHY

New York Times best selling author and scientist Gregg Braden is internationally renowned as a pioneer in bridging science, spirituality and the real world! Following a successful career as a Computer Geologist during the 1970s energy crisis, he worked in the 1980s as a Senior Liaison with the U.S. Air Force Space Command. In 1991 he became The First Technical Operations Manager for Cisco Systems. Since 1986 Gregg has explored high mountain villages, remote monasteries, and forgotten texts to merge their timeless secrets with the best science of today. His discoveries have led to 11 award-winning books published in 38 languages. Gregg has received numerous honors for his work including a 2016 nomination for the prestigious Templeton Award. He’s shared his presentations and trainings with The United Nations, Fortune 500 companies, the U. S. military and is now featured in media specials airing on major networks throughout North and South America, Asia and Europe. www.greggbraden.com
