Real people, real quotes

This amazing woman and friend, Kathryn Hand, is part of a team alongside her twin flame Mick Turner, organising the most ethical and integrity awake events I know in this arena worldwide. Truly magnificent events and communities. These times are powerful when we come together in a vision of a better world and humanity. Our community of global friends loves. We hold that vision no matter what. We guide and help each other no matter what. The spirit of a new humanity resides within us. I met magnificent souls  at #CosmicConsciousnessConference  + #CloseEncountersConference.


I am only just starting to write-up what happened during every skywatch when 60-80 craft danced in the sky for us lighting star systems to be remembered. And the powerful contact experiences that will stay with me forever. The ancestors and star-beings spoke loudly to those who love. 'WE CAME FROM THE STARS, WE RETURN TO THE STARS'. Thank you to a huge new family. I have included some of you not all. You are all remembered in my heart.

The Close Encounters meeting 2018 is now over. Many thanks to Kathryn and Mick! Mainly I realized from this meeting, just how many people worldwide have had some kind of covert or psychic contact with extra-terrestrials, some friendly but others not so friendly. Of course they are not just "lights in the sky"! Some of them are making "crop circles", while others may be interacting with local humans on a subtle, covert level. And the actual number of multi-witness UFO sightings over the past 50 years is widespread. Almost everything that the mainstream media have been telling people is a lie.

Just wanted to say a big thank you to Mick, Kathryn and all the other beings who put the event together. I came home more expanded and feel so very blessed and humbled to be in the presence of so many Divine and brave souls.

In a blink and a heartbeat, the Afterlife Explorers and Close Encounters Conferences are over. Packed with incredible content from a stellar showcase of speakers, we were blessed to have sound healing, meditations, breakout sessions, workshops, skywatches, exhibitors and fantastic opportunities to mingle, socialise and connect with beautiful souls. Here's just a few snapshots of a fantastic 4 days.

- Darren Maxwell (Speaker)

The thanks is all yours beautiful Kathryn Hand 💜 You are the catalyst, for it is you and Mick Turner working so hard to organise, put together, run and hold such an amazing enlightening and powerful conference which is the platform/ voice/ expression not only to bring much needed light to this area/field but to host a beautiful safe space for all to gather, learn, share and be supported by those with open minds and hearts ... I am so very grateful.

- Anita Cassidy Bowman

CONGRATULATIONS YOU BOTH WERE STARS !!! I saw the hard work and energy you put into this and it’s been a year-long in the making. It was a success because of this dedication and sheer hard work. Well done guys you rock!

I had a wonderful time at the Afterlife Exploreres Conference and the Close Encounters Conference. What I find the most meaningful is to see how many people connect with one another on those deeper levels, and experience the relief of knowing they are not judged and have their experiences validated. The happy smiling faces of knowing they are not alone on this journey. For me that is the greatest joy. However after being in such high requencies has payback. I came home last night and thought i would get back to the nonsense in the 3D world and as I put the TV on it went BANG twice .. no TV for me.. Now I wonder what thats saying .... haha ! Thank you all the atendees because you are the ones we are waiting for.

– Mary Rodwell (Keynote speaker)


I have spent 4 amazing days in Byron Bay at the Afterlife Explorers and Close Encounters conferences.  I wanted to say to Mick and Kathryn how much I enjoyed the conferences to thank them for the chance to present on Friday and to say how much I admire, respect and acknowledge the HUGE amount of effort they have tirelessly injected for every single one of us.  All of that in the face of challenging and bone chillding opposition from interdimensional forces.  Well done.  You two are inspirational.

– Andrew Reay (Speaker)
