My teacher and dear friend, Chris Bache, will be doing a free event with Shift Network on Saturday, November 13th, 2021. I would love for you to join us for this hour together on A Transformative Journey into the Cosmic Mind through Psychedelics.
I began studying with Chris in 2015, at the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco, CA. I took his phenomenal and life-changing course, Dark Night Early Dawn. After 7-years of studying directly with Stan Grof and Rick Tarnas, working with with Chris helped me to integrate the many facets of my learning and experience. His broad and encompassing worldview helped to round-out my cosmology, better understand and integrate my medicine journeys, and deepen into my self and my relationship with the Divine.
Now, Chris is sharing from his most recent work, LSD and the Mind of the Universe. This free event with Shift will go into Chris’ explorations and discoveries. I find that sharing space with Chris helps to fortify my spirit for the turbulent times in which we live. All are welcome to participate in just two weeks!
Take a journey into the exquisite creative mind of the Universe and feel its Cosmic Love for you
Understand why deep psychedelic experiences are real — and how they provide trustworthy insights into life beyond space-time
Absorb spiritually deepening insights that don’t require you to take psychedelics
Learn what it feels like to be dissolved into the crystalline body of God
Gain insights into the nature of consciousness that can transform your purpose and your destiny
Learning to navigate the LSD-amplified state with focused intent and clear recall, Chris shattered boundary after boundary until, bathed in cosmic love, he was carried into the hyper-clear perfection and ecstasy of the realm he calls the Diamond Luminosity.
Chris’ presentation will give you a small but profound glimpse into the Universal Mind. You’ll sense how vast and perfect it is even as it continues to unfold — and how you’re connected to everything in existence… giving you insight into the nature of true transcendence.
We hope you’re able to catch the event as scheduled, but if you register and miss it, you’ll receive a downloadable recording as soon as it’s available.

and the Mind of the Universe: Diamonds from Heaven
In this talk Chris Bache will share some of the boundaries crossed and the lessons learned in his 20-year psychedelic journey reported in his forthcoming book LSD and the Mind of the Universe (November, 2019). 73 high dose LSD sessions conducted between 1979-1999 became the philosophical adventure of a lifetime, but one that he had to keep largely hidden from his colleagues and society. Now that psychedelic sacraments are returning to legitimate scientific and academic discourse, Professor Bache can reveal the story of his extraordinary pilgrimage into the mind of the cosmos, the trials he faced, and the sublime intimacy with the Divine that opened.
Christopher M. Bache 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 translated into six languages: 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: Diamonds from Heaven.
Chris is a dear and beloved teacher of ours. For those of you who do not yet know his work, you can check out his books mentioned above. I highly recommend reading all of them. Dark Night Early Dawn was a key book that shaped my cosmology along with Lifecycles. The Living Classroom is a must read for all teachers who practice in a transpersonal pedagogy, upon which my teaching style and approach is based.
I am very excited and honored to share this amazing opportunity to have a four day intimate discussion about the psychedelic path with a great teacher and explorer of consciousness, Chris Bache. Participants will be in dialogue around the material in Bache’s forthcoming book, Stealing Diamonds From Heaven, an account of his 20 year psychedelic odyssey.
” Join us for a discussion of psychedelics that will push the boundaries of theory and practice as the journey opens beyond the personal to the cosmological, beyond self- transformation to collective-transformation, beyond the present to the future. Bringing the Bodhisattva vow to medicine work. Understanding our moment in history. Giving birth to the future human. Surviving God’s embrace.”
The workshop will take place this summer, June 9th – 12th, in the Berkeley Hills of California. Please see the above flyer for more information. The workshop space is limited to 20 people and is already half full. To register or for questions please email me directly at email@example.com.
