Psychedelic Shine @ Boulder Theater - 2/12

Article Contributed by Medicinal Mind… | Published on Wednesday, February 1, 2017

Medicinal Mindfulness and Psychedelic Club Present Psychedelic Shine with Dennis McKenna: a full day of psychedelic informed lectures, expert panels, live music, poetry, community vendors, a psychedelic art gallery and an evening Community Breathwork experience.

“Our vision is to hold an event honoring the successes of psychedelic medicines and the community that supports this exploration. Psychedelic Shine is about living into and celebrating the successes and opportunities already achieved by this movement,” said Daniel McQueen, ED of Medicinal Mindfulness. “Our event is part information sharing, part community building and part grassroots consciousness experience.”

Part 1: Day-Long Event featuring Speakers, Artists, Poetry & Live Music

From 10am until 6pm, learn how psychedelic medicines will shape the society of the future through art, technology and medicine. Various speakers and panels will be discussing topics from MDMA therapy to psychedelics and Buddhism to the ceremonial cannabis revival. The day will be blotted with poetry, live music, visionary art and of course lots of community building. This will culminate with a talk by Dr. Dennis McKenna, legendary psychedelic researcher, activist, and lecturer.

“Science – and the wider world – is rediscovering psychedelic medicines, and it’s none too soon as our planet faces geopolitical dysfunction and environmental catastrophe. Now these ancient medicines are re-emerging on a global stage with an important message for our species: We do not own Nature, and we have to learn, again, to listen to the message of the Plant Teachers,” said Dr. Dennis McKenna. “They are the catalysts for a global shift in consciousness, to bring about the healing not only of our own hearts and minds that we so desperately seek, but that of the planet that we love.”

Part 2: Community Breathwork Experience

In the evening starting at 7pm, Medicinal Mindfulness is facilitating an evocative, deeply healing, and legal altered states experience called Community Breathwork. Participants are invited to tap into their individual potentials for this incredible movement. This powerful practice will be facilitated by Daniel McQueen, MA, Executive Director of Medicinal Mindfulness, and the live music of Nibumbu. Visit for more info and what to bring.

“Most people don’t believe you can get into some very powerful altered states with simply your own breath until they try it. It really is a transformational trip,” said Kelsey Armeni, Event Manager of Medicinal Mindfulness.
