Friends, lovers, seekers and others , it is through research, science and ecstatic creativity that we shall celebrate and honor the 80 year jubilee of the discovery of LSD. For two days we will delve into the cosmos of contemporary psychonautics and look for ways to bring the knowledge, understanding and experiences back down to earth : Together with artists, therapists, and researchers, we will deepen our knowledge of consciousness, and explore ways in which through consciousness, we can live in harmony with the natural world.
Where does the journey go ? - from egoism to ecoism!
Discovering the manyfold ways of expanding consciousness through talks on current issues of the psychedelic renaissance, multimedia installations and performances, perception-expanding concerts, an artistic wellness retreat and a selection of art and craft creations ; all dedicated to the visionary language of LSD.

Workshops on Sunday
11h-12h15 Self Care Ritual - Sharka Rey @ Reisebüro am Hafen, Ostquai
A warm welcome to all of you.
Self-care, as the name suggests, is all about caring for yourself to ensure that your physical, mental, emotional, and social needs are met. It is vital for building resilience toward stressors in life that you cannot eliminate. We all have our own individual strategies how to do that which might also change throughout our life course. If you feel that today slowing down through practice of breath-work, yoga, and water cleansing is the way to meet your needs, this ritual is for you.
14h-17h Ritual of Orgy and Play - Sharka Rey @ Reisebüro am Hafen, Ostquai
This workshop is led, structured and safer space based on framework of consent.
Concept & Facilitation: Sharka Rey (www.sharkarey.com)
Musical Ambience: Alain Meyer (soundcloud.com/oiox)
Same as psychedelics, historically speaking, orgy has been a ritualistic practice all around the world since centuries; in ancient Egypt, Greece, Rome, India just to name a few. People engaged in orgy in order to make soil more fertile and more crops to grow, more rain to come, to salute to life and creation, to welcome summer solstice, and to celebrate pleasure, bodies and human sexuality.
I would like to invite you to celebrate sensuality, touch, pleasure, body diversity and your sexuality. I am aware of that orgy can be scary and intimidating however, it can be also transformative, bonding, playful, and sensual experience. This is a meeting of bodies. The bodies converse with or without touch. You do only what you want to do. You are also invited to step out and watch.
Orgy environment is extremely sophisticated learning site where one learns about own boundaries, verbal and nonverbal communication, how to say yes and no, how to respectfully give and accept rejection, and also how to get inspired. It can be triggering and simultaneously liberating.
Please note: This is an alcohol and other drug free space. If you are under influence of those substances you cannot participate to this event.
