Celebrate an evening of aliens, ayahuasca, and chakra activations at the East Coast readings of my debut book The Electric
Jesus: The Healing Journey of a Contemporary Gnostic in Boise, ID & Salt Lake City, UT. (May 17 &18)
The Electric Jesus Reading & Chakra Activation East Coast Tour
With Evolver Co-founder Jonathan Talat Phillips
This potent and revealing memoir chronicles Phillips journey from being a defeated countercultural media activist through a mystical initiation involving underground ayahuasca ceremonies, kundalini awakenings, prankster spirit guides, shape-shifting extraterrestrials at Burning Man, miraculous healings, and an international movement trailblazing visionary ways to help our planet in crisis. Along the way, he uncovers the lost rites of the Christian mystery schools and secret electric messages for personal and global transformation.
These Evolver events will open with a chakra activation, followed by a reading, and a community discussion about Evolver and the rising consciousness movement flowering across the planet. Thanks to Evolver Editions/North Atlantic Books, "What on Earth?" Crop Circle Movie and the Center for Shamanic Studies and Education for being a sponsor of the tour.
