This Funzing Experience:

Come meet Darren Le Baron and discover how Psychedelics were used to dance with death. Navigating the afterlife this way will allowed people in ancient times to live a more purposeful and liberated life.

Darren will explore ancient mythologies that connect the human entheogenic experience, the mythical Underworld and the ancient art of navigating the afterlife, and how this all corresponds with the psychedelic experience coined "Ego Death".

Be taken you on a historical journey! You'll look at the origins of these practices in ancient Africa, Mesopotamia and Europe and see how they have become coded within many rites of passages throughout the ancient indigenous world.

Darren Springer is a grass-roots researcher and event organiser based in London, the Director of Ancient Future, the Convenor of the Psychedelia Railway Gatherings and curator at Earth Tone Arts.
