When Jonathan Talat Phillips experienced a devastating loss as a countercultural media activist, he unwittingly embarked on a mystical journey marked by underground ayahuasca ceremonies, kundalini awakenings, prankster spirit guides, shapeshifting extraterrestrials at the Burning Man festival, and miraculous energy healing that reshaped his skeptical worldview. In The Electric Jesus: The Healing Journey of a Contemporary Gnostic (edited by bestselling 2012 author Daniel Pinchbeck), Phillips chronicles the rise of an international movement that is trailblazing visionary ways to address our current planetary crisis through raised consciousness. Phillips delves into his own Christian background, discovering the lost rites of the mystery schools and their secret electric messages concerning personal transformation and a potential evolutionary shift for our world.
The night will open with an in-depth chakra activation to get our energies flowing, followed by a reading, and a community discussion about Evolver Boston, the overall Evolver Movement, and a rising consciousness culture flowering across the planet.
Phillips co-founded the cutting edge web-magazine Reality Sandwich and social network for conscious collaboration Evolver.net, coordinating the Evolver Spores program with 40+ regional chapters. He is an initiate of the International Sufi Order, founder of the NYC Gnostics, and creator of The Ayahuasca Monologues: Tales of the Spirit Vine. He is a Reiki Master and Bioenergetic Healer. www.TalatHealing.com
