Explorer’s Club: East Forest and Radha Weppner – Psychedelics, Creativity, Music, and Awakening

September 19 @ 5:00 pm - 6:15 pm PDT

A Ram Dass community exploring non-ordinary states of consciousness, (psychedelics), spirituality, and science.

Step into a realm of extraordinary – join these free community gatherings as we delve into pivotal movements within the psychedelic renaissance while paying homage to the enduring legacy of Ram Dass, a trailblazing icon in this field. Our gatherings will include, yet transcend, the conventional discourse on psychedelics as therapy and healing. In addition, we embark on explorations of expanded consciousness, guided by the themes of awe, transcendence, union, and beyond. Journey with us as we navigate psychedelics in the contexts of spirituality, science, and the creativity impulse – a key component for addressing the profound questions that shape both our personal journeys and the world at large. Through a blend of archival talks by Ram Dass, engaging interviews with contemporary visionaries in the field, live audience Q&A sessions, and group discussions, our gatherings serve as catalysts for mutual learning and growth. Join us on this transformative odyssey towards a deeper understanding and collective evolution.”

East Forest is a multidisciplinary artist, producer, and ceremony guide. His work explores living authentically within a modern context through an introspective methodology that weaves together elements of electro-acoustic live music, nature, technology, brain science, and guided meditation. His “ceremony-concerts” utilize a skilled instrumental repertoire to create space for an emotive inner journey. “Music For The Deck of The Titanic” is the latest chapter in his ever-evolving career, which includes over 30 albums, including 2019’s album-length collaboration with spiritual pioneer Ram Dass, the five-hour-long psilocybin soundtrack “Music For Mushrooms: A Soundtrack For the Psychedelic Practitioner”, and collaborations with artists Jon Hopkins, Typhoon, Laraaji, Dead Prez, Nick Mulvey, Peter Broderick, DJ ANNA and more. As a trailblazer in the global movement of meditation and inner resilience, he offers guided meditations, retreats, a weekly podcast (Ten Laws w/East Forest), and talks that guide students through a brain-body approach aimed towards non-religious and grounded spirituality; he is a faculty member at the Esalen Institute and has worked with Google and Johns Hopkins neuroaesthetics project, UCSF, Wavepaths, Consciousness Hacking, TED, Numinus, is the co-founder of JourneySpace.com, and more.
