Bardo Bath: The Alembic (early show)

Bardo Bath: The Alembic (early show)
An immersive liminal experience featuring guided meditation, visuals, and live vibraphone soundscapes.

Find a comfortable position, relax, and prepare to experience the Bardo as described in the Tibetan Book of Dead and later adapted for psychedelic trip sessions by Drs. Timothy Leary, Ralph Metzner, and Richard Alpert.

Take an immersive trip into the Luminous Bardo of Dharmata with live vibraphone soundscapes performed by Sonic Shaman CHRIS DINGMAN with special guest ZANETA and original light art projections by YOSUH JONES and AUBREY NEHRING.

Meditation guides DOC KELLEY and ERIKA ROSENBERG, Ph. D., will lead you through the Bardo of dying and back again—renewed, refreshed, and rebirthed. Within this last Bardo, one typically has powerful visions but also the chance to experience the nature of the mind.

After the show, we'll hold space for an integration circle to support a safe and open conversation about death and dying.

This event is sound bath style. Meditation pillows and pads will be available, but you can bring blankets, yoga mats, etc. We also invite attendees to bring offerings of flowers for the Psychedelic Buddhist altar installation.

"Trust your divinity trust your brain trust your companions. Whenever in doubt turn off your mind relax float downstream.”
