In a rare Toronto appearance, Electric Jesus author, Evolver co-founder, and Bioenergetic healer Jonathan Talat Phillips will be visiting from NYC to host an evolutionary weekend, featuring four "electrifying" events hosted by Evolver Toronto (Nov. 9 - 10). Join us for these joyful and magical gatherings of healing, culture, community, and transformation.
with Evolver Co-Founder Jonathan Talat Phillips
Friday, November 9th
When Jonathan Talat Phillips experienced a devastating loss as a countercultural media activist, he unwittingly embarked on a mystical journey marked by underground ayahuasca ceremonies, kundalini awakenings, prankster spirit guides, shapeshifting extraterrestrials at the Burning Man festival, and miraculous energy healings that reshaped his skeptical worldview. In The Electric Jesus: The Healing Journey of a Contemporary Gnostic (edited by bestselling 2012 author Daniel Pinchbeck), Phillips chronicles the rise of an international movement that is trailblazing visionary ways to address our current planetary crisis through raised consciousness. Phillips delves into his own Christian background, discovering the lost rites of the mystery schools and their secret electric messages concerning personal transformation and a potential evolutionary shift for our world.
The night will open with a chakra activation, followed by a reading, and a community discussion about The Evolver Network and a rising consciousness culture flowering across the planet. Afterparty to follow (see details below). Presented by Evolver Toronto & Origo Books.
Origo Books, 49 Lower Jarvis St

Praise for The Electric Jesus
A modern Odyssey of awakening, Jonathan Talat Phillips's journey into Gnosticism deeply resonates with the eccentric moment. The Electric Jesus, a spiritual autobiography, reveals a life lived in the light of transformation, searching for the mystic core of a planetary civilization.
