This all day workshop offers a playful introduction to self-exploration, self-assessment and transformative work, without having to adopt a cultural-spiritual paradigm.
We will explore the 8 Circuit Brain Model, devised by Dr. Timothy Leary, in an embodied way using a series of exercises, games and rituals for you to have a taste of direct experience with this map.
I find this model useful to understand how experiences of altered states affect personal transformation and where we need to focus our inner work, to integrate and remain balanced while engaging with explorations of altered states.
who is this for?
If your rational mind has strong allergies against the notions of woo and magic, this might not be for you.
It is, if you have an affinity for consciousness exploration and like to play with altered states – either using psychedelics or practicing ritual and magick.
The rabbithole the work around this model offers, might be for you if you are looking for an approach to self-knowledge and expansion, that empowers you to be your own “spiritual authority”… and you are open to fringe philosophers with a sense of humor to give you pointers without selling you ontological paradigms.
what will one get out of this?
An embodied experience downloaded into your system to play, adapt and further explore different dimensions of experience available to the human nervous system.
You will receive insights in how to approach psychonautic exploration in a balanced manner and how the integration process works.
You might come out with a sense of expansion and new perspectives for looking at yourself and how your nervous system shapes the way you experience reality.
And you will have a lot of fun!
The journey is designed as a quick run through of the 8 levels of consciousness, with rapid shifts between different spaces.
Over a series of 8 experiments, practices, games and rituals where we will explore feelings of safety, territoriality, cognition, belonging, play, intuition, magick and impermanence.
This workshop includes physical movement and proximity as well as touch and space for vulnerable sharings.

How to prepare
Do not take any consciousness altering substances. If possible, also not the day before.
We want to feel how our system responds and opens throughout this journey.
Have a light, protein rich breakfast and prepare some healthy snacks for yourself. Bring a bottle of water that can be closed to properly hydrate.
Wear something you would feel comfortable in doing some physical warm up. If you feel the call, you can bring a second outfit, that makes you feel more magical.
Bring a journal to take notes and put down reflections from what is coming up for you.
Come with curiosity, an open mind and ready to play.
COVID: Please come tested. No matter what kind of G you have as status.
