I was privileged to help organize the first Evolver Convergence which happened in Pittsburgh the weekend of June 1-3. I figured that the Convergence would be lovely, I'd have a great time, meet some grand people, business as usual, etc. What a vast underestimation.
On Saturday December 18, Evolver NYC and Get Your Dance On are uniting forces to bring together the city’s best local DJs, musicians, yoga teachers, healers, artists, and performers for a night of ecstatic holiday revelry.
Evolver NYC Spore: The Future of Psychedelics
Come join fellow evolvers as we explore and discuss the new frontiers
emerging for psychedelics in our modern culture, as both scientifically
verified medicines and intentional tools for personal development. The
night features psychotherapist and author Dr. Neal Goldsmith, who will
share his thoughts on the future of psychedelics after returning from
MAPS' "Psychedelic Science in the 21st Century" conference. Evolver
editorial director and "Breaking Open the Head" and “2012” author Daniel
Pinchbeck will speak about his transformative experiences taking Iboga,
and the Trypnotist, creator of Trypnosis, will be our DJ guide on a
transcendental techno trip – no substances required. The evening will
also include an opportunity to interact in a number of workshops and
artistic expressions: music, visuals and recreational brain wave
entrainment by Psyncus; Trypnosis sessions via stroboscopic goggles with
the Trypnotist; meditation trips through the imagination with the ID
Project’s Joshua Adler; live drawings inspired by extra-dimensional
music with Chris Kaplan; “Dream Yoga” with Matt Canale; a binaural beats
and Theta brainwave inducing experiments with Eliott Edge; Reiki Energy
Healing by Steve Urban (Traditional Usui Method). Come early to catch a
performance of minimalist Terry Riley's "In C", led by Nathan Clark.

Greetings New Yorkers,
Fuel your rockets kiddies there’s a boatload of parties going on
this weekend, pun intended. Make sure your shoes are comfortable
because you’re going to be doing a lot of dancing. Don your costumes
and get your freak on. On Friday, jet off to the Intergalactic
Planetary house-party within a three floor self-made mansion deep in
the dark heart of Brooklyn. Archaic Revival is back with another
psychedelic art/video party this time at Refuge in BK, which is going
to be better than ever. Boom Boat and Overboard are Saturday’s
party/fundraiser highlights brought to you by Figment and Disorient,
respectively, and then there’s the Dance of Vice for the truly
decadent. But before you go there, be sure to check out the very cute
and wonderfully talented Tom Milson, beloved friend of the Gossamer
Court at Strawberry Fields in the early afternoon. If that isn’t
enough, Globesonic is back spinning a free dance party on the pier, but
before you go, stop by Imagenode and make a blinkie for your evening
costume. On Sunday, you can take a trip upstate and see CoSM’s new
Art Sanctuary, they are presenting Alash: Old New Tuvan Music.
Remember to save the date and some energy for Evolver.net’s next Spore,
Shamanic Panic on the 19th. You won’t want to miss it and besides
what else could possibly be more interesting on a Wednesday evening?
Plus there’s more…
