About this Event
Sunday, October 25 | 5 p.m. PT | $15-$25 Suggested Donation
Alex Grey and Allyson Grey are widely considered two of the most prominent living visionary artists and thought leaders within the psychedelic movement. In 1996, they founded a sanctuary and nonprofit in upstate New York featuring psychedelic artists from around the world called the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors. Together, they’ve spoken around the globe about visionary states, the psychedelic renaissance, healing, spiritual awakening, and the sacred. In this 90-minute virutal gathering, they join DoubleBlind’s community to talk about their journeys, the role of art in healing, and the steps we can all take towards greater awakening for ourselves, others, and ultimately, the planet. There will also be time for questions from our readers.
