Picture of Robert Schoch speaking at Contact in the Desert, 2017, in California


Over the years I have been privileged to appear before many audiences -- in person and through the media of print, radio, television, and the Internet. I have spoken about my research, ranging from environmental science, paleontology, parapsychology, and the origins of religion, to ancient studies (such as the Great Sphinx, Göbekli Tepe, Easter Island, Markawasi, pyramids around the world, and the end of the last ice age). Recently interest has turned to the material and discoveries put forth in my book, Forgotten Civilization: The Role of Solar Outbursts in Our Past and Future.

Croatian Cruise, 2018!

July 22nd–29th, 2018, I'll be sailing the Adriatic and discussing my research in detail aboard a beautiful luxury cruise ship.

Cosmic Origins – Sedona, AZ

In May 2017 I returned to Sedona, Arizona, and presented my research on the extreme antiquity of civilization. I shared the stage with my colleague and friend Robert Bauval, with whom I've published a book, Origins of the Sphinx. The event, organized by World ViewZ Media, also included an outing to Rock Art Ranch where we and guests enjoyed exploring a canyon of ancient petroglyphs, many of which tie directly to my research surrounding plasma events at the end of the last ice age. (See Forgotten Civilization for more on this subject.)

Banner for March 2017 tour of Malta with Robert Schoch

The Ancient Enigmas of Malta

In March 2017 I was thrilled to lead a 7-day tour of the wondrous Mediterranean island nation of Malta. The trip was organized by Andrea Mikana-Pinkham and Sacred Sites Journeys. Malta is home to some of the most mysterious sites and structures of the ancient world, including megalithic "temples", the world famous and deeply problematic "cart ruts" preserved in solid stone, and more. It is my hope to conduct another tour to Malta again soon. Please let me know if this should interest you or a group of 20 or more of which you are a part.

Peru, Bolivia, and Easter Island Tour

In January of 2017 I led a two-week tour to Peru and Bolivia, with a 3-day add-on to Nazca prior to the main trip and a 3-day add-on to Easter Island afterwards. Katie and I again teamed up with our friend and colleague, tour organizer Gregory Poplowski, for this wonderful adventure. For those who missed it, please let us know and perhaps we can organize another one.

Banner for the 2016 A.R.E. Conference

The Edgar Cayce Foundation

In October of 2016 I returned to the A.R.E. to give two presentations of my research. As you may know, Dr. Thomas Dobecki and I, in the early 1990s, discovered a chamber beneath the left paw of the Great Sphinx of Egypt, something prophesized by Edgar Cayce decades prior. It is my hope to one day enter this chamber; as far as I know it has yet to be explored. If you have the capacity to assist in this endeavor, please do let me know (funding is the primary issue).

Banner for the Detroit Expo Conference

Awake and Empowered Expo

In November of 2016 I spoke for the first time at the Awake and Empowered Expo in Detroit, Michigan. I gave two presentations regarding my research on ancient civilizations. Recently, an article of mine was posted to their website, which you may enjoy: Ancient Civilizations and the Spirit World.

Banner for 2016 Earth-Keeper conference

Earth-Keeper Star-Gate 2016, in Denver

In recent years I have had the pleasure of speaking at several Earth-Keeper conferences. This advertisement is from their 2016 gathering in Denver. I spoke about my early work on the Great Sphinx of Egypt, the incomparable 12,000-year-old site of Göbekli Tepe in Turkey, and how both bear witness to solar events that brought the last ice age to an end. James Tyberonn and his wife Anne lead this warm and welcoming community. We look forward to the next time we see them.

Banner for CPAK 2016

CPAK 2016

The Conference on Precession and Ancient Knowledge is a very special one for Katie and me. It was at CPAK 2007 that we met! Thank you to Walter Cruttenden, our friend and colleague, who heads this community along with the Binary Research Institute. I have spoken at many CPAKs through the years and am always pleased to return to discuss my research, as I did in September of 2016. For more on these conferences, please see the Cycle of the Ages website.

Banner for Conference in Germany 2016

Sphinx Conference, Lennestadt, Germany

On 30 April 2016 I spoke at The Secrets of The Sphinx Conference in Galileo-Park, Lennestadt, Germany. I was joined by my long-time friend and colleague Robert Bauval, his broher Jean-Paul Bauval, and many others. My presention focused on my latest research regarding the extreme antiquity of the Great Sphinx of Egypt, its connection to other very ancient cultures, and the end of the last Ice Age. Please see my book with Robert Bauval, Origins of the Sphinx, for a comprehensive examination of this enigmatic monument and the arguments surrounding its creation and antiquity.

Banner for 2015 Modern Knowledge Conference

Modern Knowledge 2015 – in Toronto

On 28 November 2015 I enjoyed participating in the Modern Knowledge EarthRhythm Conference in Toronto, Canada. I presented my latest research on Earth Cycles and addressed the heated issue of what ended our last Ice Age, decimating the high civilizations of the time (it was not a comet, but rather our Sun in the form of a major solar outburst). For more on this subject, see my comments regarding the Younger Dryas here, as well as in Appendix 9 of Origins of the Sphinx. Additionally, Forgotten Civilization discusses in a broader manner all of the above.

Chapel of Sacred Mirrors, 2015 Salon

What a pleasure it was to return to Alex and Allyson Grey's Chapel of Sacred Mirrors for a summer workshop/salon. I was there in July of 2015 and spent the large part of a day presenting my research in detail, with time for questions and answers from all.

Banner for speaking engagememnt in Florence, Italy

Il Nuovo Orizzonte ("The New Horizon")

In May/June of 2014 I spoke for the first time in Florence, Italy! What a warm welcome Katie and I received from the organizers (Leonardo Lovari and Paola Agnolucci) and the audience. Indeed, it has always been a pleasure speaking in Italy and we look forward to a return.

Banner for South Africa Conference

SCA Conference, South Africa

In late June and early July of 2014 I spoke in Cape Town and Johannesburg, South Africa. This wonderful two-week conference tour was hosted by Nash and Nisha Singh and their company, Alpine Events South Africa.

Paradigm Symposium 2013

In October of 2013 I spoke at the Paradigm Symposium in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I presented some of my latest research, which connects the Great Sphinx of Egypt to the 12,000-year-old site in Turkey known as Göbekli Tepe; both bear witness to events that brought the last ice age to an end. My book Forgotten Civilization: The Role of Solar Outbursts in Our Past and Future discusses these sites and topics.

Banner for Austin Workshop with Robert Schoch

Austin Workshop - Insight Events USA

In September of 2013 I was invited by Randy Davila, President of Hampton Roads Publishing Company and Hierophant Publishing, to conduct a weekend workshop in Austin, Texas. It was a pleasure meeting him, reuniting with old friends, making new ones, and presenting my research to all.

Banner for Turkey Tours

Turkey Tour 2012, 2013, and 2015!

I've had the pleasure of leading (as guest speaker) a number of tours to Turkey with my friend and colleague, Grzegorz ("Gregory") Poplawski. His company, The Time of a New Era, takes care of all the logistics for the tours (he is the official organizer). I speak on site, give lectures during selected evenings, and explore the ancient wonders of Turkey together with our guests (there is always something new to learn!). If you and your group (of 20 or more) would like to arrange a tour like this especially for yourselves, please feel free to contact me (via my wife, at culissey at gmail dot com).

Banner for Egypt tour December 2012

Egypt Tour!

For the very special December 2012 holidays - including the Winter Solstice, Christmas, and New Year's - I led a tour to Egypt (this one also organized by Gregory Poplawski and The Time of a New Era)! The trip included visits to the Pyramids of Giza, the Great Sphinx, the Coptic church of the Holy Family, and a Nile cruise, with stops at Karnak, Luxor, the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, the Temple of Edfu, Abu Simbel, and much more. We even visited the pyramid and labyrinth area of Hawara. I lead Egypt tours quite regularly, so if you would like to join me on one, please let me know.

Lots of Radio Interviews

For over twenty years I have had the pleasure of being interviewed on radio (and more recently podcasts, Internet radio, YouTube postings and the like) by dozens and dozens of hosts on as many stations. It would be extremely difficult for me to remember, much less list, all of the interviews I have done over the years. Each time I publish something (an article, a book, a new discovery) requests come in. I do appreciate and enjoy them, especially when listeners can call or write in with questions, but pre-recorded interviews are great too. As long as my schedule permits, I try to fulfill all requests for interviews. If you would like to interview me, feel free to contact me. Information on how to do this is on the Biography & Introduction page of this site.

The Yuga Cycle of the Ages and
Our Awakening Consciousness

In May 2012 I spoke at The Yuga Cycles of the Ages and Our Awakening Consciousness conference in California. I presented further evidence for an early yet advanced civilization over 10,000 years ago.

Banner for Electric Universe 2012 Conference

Electric Universe 2012: The Human Story

In January of 2012 I spoke at the Electric Universe Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event was hosted by the Thunderbolts Project, which Wal Thornhill and David Talbott lead. With the discovery (my wife's!) that Easter Island's mysterious script known as rongorongo connects to the work of plamsa physicist Dr. Anthony Peratt, my research connects to this fascinating community. For those who missed the event and are curious about this subject (plasma glyphs found all over the world – indications of a major solar event at the end of the last ice age), please see my book, Forgotten Civilization: The Role of Solar Outbursts in Our Past and Future.

Nile Valley Conference 2011

I was pleased to speak at the Nile Valley Conference in Atlanta, Georgia – September of 2011.

Banner for Symposium in Poland

Symposium in Poland: The Mysteries of Ancient Egypt

In May of 2011 I spoke at a symposium in Warsaw, Poland. I discussed my research on the Great Sphinx, Göbekli Tepe, Easter Island, and the end of the last ice age, a talk that later formed the basis of my book, Forgotten Civilization. It was at this conference that I met Grzegorz ("Gregory") Poplawski, as he was the host, a most gracious and accomplished one despite his young age at the time. Our (Katie's and my) connection with him here led to the tours we have done with him since and the friendship we have forged.

BOLD 2011 Conference – U.A.E.

In February of 2011 I spoke in Dubai, UAE, at the BOLD 2011 Conference. I've returned in more recent years for subsequent gatherings.

International Conference on Ancient Studies – in Dubai

I was honored to speak at the International Conference on Ancient Studies in Dubai, November 2008, held at the Raffles Dubai, and I returned for their next conference in February 2010, convened at Zayed University. The promotional trailer they made for the inaugural event remains one of my favorites: www.youtube.com/watch?v=BVQ526DOhks

The Bosnian Pyramids: The Biggest Hoax in History? [Well, Pretty Big!]

In April of 2011 I was interviewed by a Dutch production company for a documentary about the so-called Bosnian pyramids, which I've studied firsthand and found to be totally artificial. The program is titled, "The Biggest Hoax In History?" (here is a YouTube link to the piece). I have written about my findings in articles and on the Bosnia page of this website. Important to note is that my findings are in agreement with members of the European Association of Archaeologists. Here is a formal statement members of the EAA issued concerning the matter.

2012: Startling New Secrets

I was pleased to participate in an NBC-produced documentary titled, "2012: Startling New Secrets" that was filmed on site in Egypt. The show premiered on the SyFy Channel (formerly known as the Sci-Fi Channel) on Sunday, November 8th, 2009, hosted by Lester Holt. Here is a link to a clip from it: www.youtube.com/watch?v=9SZqxCkvpbU.
