Author and psychedelic explorer Chris Bache meticulously documented his insights from 73 high-dose LSD sessions conducted over the course of 20 years. Drawing upon his training as a philosopher of religion and following protocols established by Stanislav Grof, Chris went on a life-changing journey to explore his mind. What he discovered drew him into deep communion with cosmic consciousness.

Join Chris for an intimate exploration of the psychedelic path that pushes the boundaries of theory and practice—moving beyond self-transformation into collective transformation, beyond the present into Deep Time. Learn practices for ensuring clean contact, strong recall, and meaningful integration.

In this unique workshop, Chris invites you on a journey by sharing specific experiences from his LSD sessions and exploring the potential of deep relaxation and guided imagery to evoke states of deep remembering. How contagious are states of consciousness as we explore our psychedelic experiences, the soul, and humanity’s awakening?

Drawing upon his encounters with the living intelligence of our universe, Chris shares how psychedelic experiences can move us beyond spiritual awakening to cosmic exploration.
