The Abduction Experience & Alien Visitation Panel
Alan Steinfeld is an explorer of consciousness. He has contributed and curated the new UFO book, Making Contact: Preparing for the New Realities of Extraterrestrial Existence, published by St. Martin’s Press. This book is a multiple perspective from Investigators Nick Pope and Grant Cameron; Researchers Linda Mouton Howe and Drs. J.J. and Desiree Hurtak; Abductees Whitely Strieber and Henrietta Weeks, and Contact specialists Darryl Anka, Caroline Cory, and Mary Rodwell. The book also contains a previously unpublished essay by Professor John Mack former head of the Harvard School for Psychiatry. George Noory of Coast to Coast AM kicks off the volume with his veteran overview of the need to wake up to the “new realities of extraterrestrial existence.” The book stands as the most comprehensive clarification to date on the intent and intelligence behind the phenomena. The variety of viewpoints expressed in the volume provide a solid foundation for the “preparation” of the greatest challenge to ever face humankind: Meeting the cosmic others.
Additionally, for over 30 years Alan has hosted and produced the weekly television series New Realities in New York City. With 70,000+ subscribers to his YouTube channel of the same name, there have also been over 20 million viewers who have seen his programs. These include interviews with luminaries in the field of health, spirituality and UFOS – such as Deepak Chopra, Marianne Williamson, Ram Dass and every major UFO researcher in the field. With his media appearances, lectures, and conferences he informs millions about human potential, remote viewing, and the nature of alien contact. For over five years he has emceed the largest UFO event in the country, Contact in the Desert. He feels that only when the inner explorations of the soul are combined with the outer adventures of the mind can we achieve a harmonious understanding of our place in the cosmos. Steinfeld lives in New York.

His first paranormal experience took place in northern Norway in 1962 when he was four years old. His first alien abduction experience was in 1964. He has continued to have paranormal experiences throughout his life and has developed advanced mediumship capabilities. Bruce took a parapsychology class while he was stationed in West Germany in 1979 and has wanted to write about his experiences ever since.
It was only three years ago that Bruce had a spiritual awakening after a vision and communication with his departed close friend Gene that Bruce decided to publish his paranormal stories and overcome his fear of being rejected and ridiculed by his peers and the college administration. Bruce studies quantum theory and has developed a model that may help explain our quantum reality, ghosts, reincarnation, alien contact, and more. He is interested in all esoterica and oddities. Bruce has had alien contact several times, has seen UFOs, and continues to have contact with an ancient alien being known as Anzar.

On January 8th, 2007, Chris Bledsoe Sr. came face to face with celestial beings and had missing time. Although he wouldn’t recall the details of that first terrifying encounter until under hypnosis a year and a half later.
While on the banks of the Cape Fear River, Chris, his son Chris Jr. and three of his subcontractors discovered they were about to experience the most harrowing day of their lives involving unexplained phenomena, leading them to believe this was the end of the world.
MUFON sent their highest trained team to investigate the encounter, only to attempt to debunk and ridicule the Bledsoe family. Their experience was featured on the Discovery Channel's 2008 series UFOs Over Earth: The Fayetteville Incident.
Multiple three-letter agencies have been involved with the Bledsoe case, bringing increased attention and mystery to this ever-evolving story.
Chris currently lives in North Carolina with his wife Yvonne and their four adult children residing nearby. He enjoys building projects, gardening, being in service to others utilizing his healing gifts, and traveling with his wife.
