Have you ever been fully immersed during a moment on the dance floor, only to have someone’s negative energy or assumed consent disrupt your experience? It can be disheartening, but please know that you’re not alone. At Spread Magic, we believe in coming together to cultivate the perfect atmosphere for intentional spaces where our guests feel open to exploring a journey to a higher state of collective consciousness.
Experience Magic, a Bicycle Day Festival
The Experience Magic Festival will occur from 2 pm – 12 am on April 19, 2023, in Koreatown, LA, California. Our event is all about providing a haven where guests can dance freely, communicate without fear of judgment, and explore their inner worlds. We prioritize harm reduction, education, and empowerment through holistic workshops, chill vibes, and interactive space. And you know, we love EDM music. So our goal is to create an environment where our guests can experience magic in a safe and welcoming space amidst inviting electronic music.
Spread Magic and the Future of Safe Psychedelic Spaces
At Spread Magic, our mission is to provide education and support on holistic and psychedelic approaches while creating a sacred space for transformative, mindful healing, and growth through the power of magic. Our tagline is “Spread Magic, Be Kind,” because we believe that kindness is a catalyst for magic. An interaction with someone whose only intent is to be kind feels safe and allows for a deeper connection. Kindness can come in many forms, but we believe it begins with consent, compassion, and empathy.
To ensure a safe and comfortable experience for all attendees, we have created the ‘Spread Magic Say it Loud’ safety protocol. Upon arrival and throughout the event, each attendee can choose from a green, yellow, or red wristband. If you decide to wear a red wristband, it means that you prefer to have a solo experience without photos/videos, conversation, or touch. If you are wearing a yellow wristband, you prefer to be asked before any photos/videos, conversation, or touch occurs. If you choose a green wristband, you are open to all forms of connection through photos/videos, conversation, and appropriate, welcomed touch. This is just one portion of the ‘Spread Magic Say it Loud’ safety protocol we will implement at our event.
Intentions Behind the Experience Magic Festival
The purpose of the Experience Magic Festival is to create a sacred and enchanting space that cultivates the perfect atmosphere for a transformative journey to a higher state of collective consciousness. Through intentional psychedelic experiences, holistic and spiritual offerings, and communal celebration, we aim to awaken the magic within each attendee, inspiring them to live in harmony with themselves, each other, and the world around them.
We invite attendees to join us for a day full of big magic with diverse experiences including psychedelic integration workshops, yoga, sound bath experiences, guided meditations, ecstatic dance, and so much more. We will carry through into the night with various EDM DJs showcasing the many genres of the ever-evolving culture that is electronic dance music.
We hope that you will join us for our first Experience Magic festival and that this collective energy will carry forward into the future.
Bringing the Experience Magic Festival to Life
Mia Tollis, known as “Meha”, is the founder of Spread Magic and a psychedelic integration coach. Her and her team of holistic and spiritually minded women, (also known as the Spread Magic Mavens) have collectively spent the last year discussing what a safe and magical space would look like and feel like for everyone. From the beginning, she knew this mission had to be a team project and we wouldn’t have wanted it any other way.
We believe that to create legit, safe spaces for others to expand their consciousness, it is necessary to dissect every idea and translate it to be harmonious and well-received. This has led us to discuss how important consent is and how it is apparent that while some may understand consent, others may need more education and awareness in this area.
Additionally, we feel that more resources need to be accessible in the areas of harm reduction, holistic and spiritual lifestyles, mental health, and alternative therapies. With this intention, we co-created and manifested the first Spread Magic event, the Experience Magic Bicycle Day festival.
We have collaborated with a few other like-minded organizations who have offered their time and knowledge to help us bring this event to fruition. We want to thank you, Ryan & friends, over at DeCrimCA, Magick Mike, founder of Flow Tribe Global, we cannot wait to receive your Blessing of Gratitude, and of course Michael, the owner of Sugar Bank for opening up your beautiful venue to us.
