John Root presents a program on crop circles, designs that have been appearing with increasing sophistication during the past three decades in farmers’ fields and other locations all over the world. Layered weaving of plants in the fields as well as anatomical changes observed in these plants are presented as evidence of powerful and mysterious energies at work. Effects on electronic equipment, soils, animals, and human visitors are also described. Interpretations of these intricate and exquisite formations, many of which occur near sacred sites and refer to mystical traditions, are discussed as well.
Audiences are invited to share their reactions to these images and to speculate about how and why they are manifesting on our landscape. Handouts with recommended books and websites for further research are also offered to participants.
Free. No registration required. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
