Free Talk with author Dr. Jaroslav Vlcek

Author Jerry Vlcek will introduce and read from Tracking Consciousness Before Birth and Beyond, a newly published account of his memories of life from conception through birth. In poetic and analytic form, the book uncovers prenatal events such as the timing and execution of birth; starting the heart; building the brain and body; learning the power of the life force, and more.

Afterward he will open the floor to dialogue on the eternal questions of who we are, where we come from, and our purpose in life, leading to a discussion of the nature of consciousness, which may include such topics as the beginnings of life on Earth; the sun’s energy manifesting as a life force; evolution as a creative process fuelled by spirit and innate intelligence; the wave and particle characterstics of quantum events; and the ability of a lifeform to make changes to its DNA based on its life experience. He believes that personality is mortal, whereas the soul, connected to the eternal flame of life in the heart, is immortal.

Born in a highland valley in Czechoslovakia, Jaroslav “Jerry” Vlcek spent his childhood mostly walking alone and exploring the nature that surrounded him. “School took away my direct knowledge of nature,” he says, but academic success catapulted him to a lifelong career as a research scientist and educator, culminating in a professorship at the University of Toronto, where he worked in the Departments of Applied Physics, Civil Engineering, and the Faculty of Forestry. He is now retired, and lives with his wife in West Vancouver.
