Workshop: Deep Dive into LSD & the Mind of the Universe
November 8-9
Tickets & info

Chris Bache will share insights and experiences from his 20-year psychedelic journey into the depths and heights of consciousness reported in his new book LSD and the Mind of the Universe. Seventy-three high-dose LSD sessions conducted between 1979-1999 became the philosophical adventure of a lifetime, but one he had to keep largely hidden from his colleagues and society. Now as mind-expanding sacraments return to legitimate scientific and academic discourse, Chris is revealing the extraordinary story of  his pilgrimage into the mind of the cosmos, the crushing trials he faced there, the sublime intimacy with the Divine that emerged, and the visions he was given of humanity’s future.

“This is one of the most insightful and significant books I have ever read.”

Ervin Laszlo

“Once or twice in a century a book appears that has the explosive force of a supernova, breaking through the limitations of religion, science, and culture. This is such a book—a gripping account of an utterly unique and extraordinary hero’s journey."

Anne Baring Ph.D.

Chris Bache, PhD is professor emeritus in the Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies at Youngstown State University where he taught for 33 years. He is also adjunct faculty at the California Institute of Integral Studies and a Fellow at the Institute of Noetic Sciences. An award-winning teacher and international speaker, Chris’ work explores the philosophical implications of non-ordinary states of consciousness, especially psychedelic states. Chris has written four books: Lifecycles - a study of reincarnation in light of contemporary consciousness research; Dark Night, Early Dawn - a pioneering work in psychedelic philosophy and collective consciousness; and The Living Classroom, an exploration of teaching and collective fields of consciousness. His new book is LSD and the Mind of the Universe.
