  • DIY Mysticism: Creating Altars and Rituals for Personal Transformation

    We're all pretty disillusioned with dogmas and gurus, but we still feel some strange connection to the big mysteries of life. We experience magical moments that defy logic, but how do we integrate these singular spikes of synchronicity into our everyday lives?

    In this workshop, we'll explore what it means to take an experimental approach to the sacred. Rather than prescribing a new method to follow, this workshop will provide tips and tricks for creating exciting new magical methods of your own design.

    Emphasis is placed on maintaining a sacred space in your home, developing a simple daily ritual, and evolving your own sophisticated system full of powerful symbols and magical tools to "get you in the zone" and kickstart your natural-born wizard talents.

  • The Enchanted Grid: Technology as a Force of Nature

    How do we reconcile the rapid pace of technological complexity with the equally rapid destruction of the environment? How has the cultural ecosystem evolved in the light of global telecommunications? What possibilities are worth exploring in our uncertain future? Singularity? Collapse? Something in between?

    The sprawling vision of this talk is meant to articulate a story of humanity that gives new context to the incredibly baffling changes we are experiencing as a conscious species, as gardeners of this planet, and as citizens of this galaxy.

    Topics will include indigenous ways of knowing, virtual reality, mythology, artificial intelligence, global politics, sacred economics, art history, mysticism, apocalyptic prophecy, language, lucid dreaming, plant spirits, interdimensional physics, generational healing, nanotechnology, love, sex, religion, and so on.

    Come join in a wild, freewheeling dance through the delightfully unexpected connections between innumerable schools of knowledge, presented in the psychedelic tradition of bardic cartography of the invisible landscape.
