Evolver Boston/BU's Students for Sensible Drug Policy Presents Jonathan Phillips

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

Evolver Boston is proud to present our latest event in collaboration with Boston University's Students for Sensible Drug Policy. A friend of Evolver Boston, and the ideas of Evolver Boston,BU's SSDP is pleased to host Jonathan Talat Phillips, author of his first published book The Electric Jesus: The Healing Journey of a Contemporary Gnostic.

Praise for The Electric Jesus

“A modern Odyssey of awakening, Jonathan Talat Phillips's journey into Gnosticism deeply resonates with the eccentric moment. The Electric Jesus, a spiritual autobiography, reveals a life lived in the light of transformation, searching for the mystic core of a planetary civilization.” —Alex Grey, co-founder of the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors, author of The Mission of Art

"A fresh, vigorous, and often startling account of a man's introduction to higher planes of reality. If you've ever wondered what the new consciousness movement is about, read this book and find out." —Richard Smoley, author of Inner Christianity and The Dice Game of Shiva: How Consciousness Creates the Universe

    The venue was a little hard to find and promoting was difficult this time around due to scheduling and venue conflicts. The subject material was great, and the Chakra activation was really cool. Helped slow down the frenetic pace of the world and that day.

    Talat was grateful and celebrated those that came with his journey and his book. Good night and although I would have enjoyed more people attending, it was a good event.
