TALK by: Terence McKenna (Seattle, 1999)
Youtube. Wikipedia.

ENTRY fee: donation.

We will watch the last public lecture of Terence McKenna, where he talks about expansion of consciousness and the evolution of artificial intelligence.

“Both computers and drugs are what I would call function-specific arrangements of matter, and as we develop nanotechnological abilities as we move into the next century, it will be more and more clear that the difference between drugs and machines is simply that one is too large to swallow, and our best people are working on that” (the full transcript). 

Terence McKenna (1946—2000) has been studying the ontological foundations of Shamanism and the Ethno-pharmacology of spiritual transformation for the past quarter century. An innovative theoretician and spellbinding orator, Terence has emerged as a powerful voice for the psychedelic movement and the emergent societal tendency he calls The Archaic Revival.

Poetically dispensing enlightened social criticism and new theories of the fractal dynamics of time, Terence deobfuscates many aspects of the visionary lexicon, and then some. As Artist Alex Grey suggests, “In the twilight of human history, McKenna’s prescription for salvation is just so crazy it might work.”

TALK by: Nadav Or (tantra yogi)

ENTRY fee: donation.

How natural and healthy are our intimate love relationships? Our sexuality?
What did we learn, and from where, about Intimate love relationships, and about making Love? From pornography? From our patents? From our religions? When we understand our sexual conditions and how much our sexuality was condemned and suppressed since our infant, We can be compassionate and patient with ourselves and our partners, as we connect again to the source of our most powerful, beautiful and creative life energy.

Our relationships is the best platform for growth, it challenges us because our partner is our mirror, our reflection, it shows us our blind spots that we can heal and grow. The conscious way of relationships is never to blame our partner and always be grateful for the opportunity to expand.

Nadav Or is a Tantric Baba that has the privilege to be the channel (facilitator) of “Magic of Love” courses. Nadav Or is a human soul that practices Radical Honesty and forgiveness with himself and others. He claims that he is living in “Orgasmic Silence”, meaning that there is a strong connection to the stillness inside, to the source, to the light, to the “No-thingness”. To this Silence that allows everything to exist in such an extraordinary, Mysterious way, resembling different frequencies of orgasms.

LIVE by: Marc Miethe (didgeridoo)
Youtube. Facebook.

ENTRY fee: 5 eur.

Marc Miethe is one of the true innovators of contemporary Didgeridoo style. He is liberating mankind’s oldest known wind instrument, elevating the Didgeridoo from it’s image of being an “accompanying drone instrument” into a new status. With his fresh and extraordinary skills, a lot of taste and humor, it is his aim to explore the multiple possibilities of this simple wooden tube.

In his project “TOOBES: Exotic Big Beat with Tubes & Loops, Toys & Flutes” Marc is adding a looping device to record himself on the fly, completing the One Man Sonic Sounds Orchestra. He transforms percussion vocalization, as well as beat box Styles and jazz scat improvisations onto the didge. He weaves virtuous breakbeats and powerful melodic bass lines into his full spectrum of driving rhythmic and exotic soundscapes.
