Wake up and Dream

Electric Sheep and I are looking forward to this great event next Saturday in NYC:

Reality Sandwich & Jivamukti Yoga School Present...

Saturday February 2, 8pm - 4am

What happens when America's most visionary city starts building a new world by living out its dreams?

Take an overnight journey into a realm of new possibilities with otherworldly music, performance, ideas, art and alchemy. Drift through a labyrinth of rooms full of enchanted activities, glowing and pulsing artwork, exotic performers, magical chill caves, futuristic playgrounds, and endless spontaneity.

Featuring: Globesonic's (Fabian Alsultany & Derek Beres) electrifying melting pot of Afro-beat, tabla, drum 'n bass, global trance, dub, hip-hop, and house. Haj (Resident DJ of Sub Swara & Freek Factory) and his "low-end monkey business that's more about journey than genre." Hercules' (Safetycan) Hobo Tech, Freshstep and Deep Electrofunk.

Evolvitorium, 8:30p: "Asanas and Ayahuasca" In this talk Sharon Gannon (co-founder of Jivamukti Yoga) and Reality Sandwich's Daniel Pinchbeck (author of "2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl") compare and contrast yoga and shamanism and how these ancient techniques might just save our world today.

Yummy vegan food, sumptuous smoothies, & fair trade coffee.

Dreamy Costumes Highly Encouraged! 18+ with ID or all ages with a parent. No alcohol will be served. You'll need to take off your shoes when entering the dream so don your funkiest socks or slippers.

This is the first in a series of freakishly fun experiments from Reality Sandwich. Their goal is to spread ideas, connect people and reinvigorate life with creativity and spirit. As the seasons change, expect more invitations to participate in reality-changing events.

If we can build it here, we can build it anywhere. So, let's get together, New York, and start dreaming.
