Interview with an Abductee: The Experiencers Speak Out

Interview with an Abductee: The Experiencers Speak Out

Ali Travis and Aleta DeBee have interviewed more than a hundred true experiencers of Extraterrestrial (ET) contact. And, one of them is a true contactee and wants to tell her story to you! Join us, as Aleta and Ali re-enact some of those real conversations.

The one thing that almost all experiencers have in common is the thought that they are alone in their experiences. But, the truth is that there are many people who have been in contact with ETs, and they are coming forward now to tell us about it, thereby leading us into the next part of the human journey, our Cosmic Connection.

Even as the mystery deepens, the truth is coming to light. The experiencers themselves reveal what we need to know about the ET agenda, and what that agenda means to Humanity.

About the Speakers:

Aleta DeBee is the Assistant State Director of MUFON in Washington State, and an experienced Field Investigator. She is co-leader of the Washington State Experiencer Support Group in Vancouver, Washington. She is further researching the ET contact phenomenon as member of the Experiencer Research Team of MUFON.

After retirement from the Washington Department of Ecology, she has stepped up her work with UFO research. She has studied the abduction/contact phenomenon extensively to help experiencers better understand their encounters.

Aleta is a graduate of Kent State University, with a degree in Education. She has worked for state government and private industry in communications and public relations for more than 40 years.

She believes that the UFO and Experiencer phenomena are keys to better understanding our world, its history and its future. And, humanity deserves to know the truth and to move into our next evolutionary leap.

As an Experiencer Contactee, Ali Travis has worked with hundreds of Experiencers. Her work includes educating the public about Experiencer issues with an emphasis on the lack of understanding and available resources to help this community, which can touch entire families.

"Adding to the confusion, an Experiencer deals with issues on multiple levels wrapped into one package." she states, "Unpacking the issues whether they are paranormal, supernatural, off world, or something else, allows the Experiencer to talk about issues with more clarity and understanding."

For the past 4 years, she has applied project management standards in the creation of two Experiencer Support Groups in Washington State.

Ms. Travis is an avid photographer and visual artist; she lives with her husband and cats in the Seattle area.

Paranormal Pub

Paranormal Pub

Join us once a month to hear from experts in unexplainable phenomena - think UFOs, extraterrestrials, Bigfoot, ESP, ghosts and beyond. Come have a beer and a burger handcrafted beverage, concessions, and/or a slice of pizza, settle in and learn something new from a curated line-up of scholars, experiencers and others.

According to Wikipedia: "Paranormal events are phenomena described in popular culture, folklore and other non-scientific bodies of knowledge, whose existence within these contexts is described to lie beyond normal experience or scientific explanation.

A paranormal phenomenon is different from hypothetical concepts such as dark matter and dark energy. Unlike paranormal phenomena, these hypothetical concepts are based on empirical observations and experimental data gained through the scientific method.

The most notable paranormal beliefs include those that pertain to ghosts, extraterrestrial life, unidentified flying objects, psychic abilities or extrasensory perception and cryptids."

We thank the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) for coordinating and hosting this programming at the historic Mission Theater.

The location that serves as one of McMenamins favorite neighborhood theater pubs was the locus of great spiritual zeal beginning in the 1890s. That's when the Swedish Evangelical Mission established its church here....

From a church to a theater-pub, the Mission's history ain't exactly saintly. Click here for more info!
