Sunrise: Another World Festival & The Psychic Lysurgery

by Matty James

Sunrise: Another World Festival’s fantastic new site location is the beautiful ThoulstonePark, Chapmanslade, Wiltshire (near Bath). A former golf course, complete with enchanting lake, this magical new site has everything guaranteed to make your festival experience more memorable and enlightening than ever before! Sunrise has declared  this land the official home of the first ever festival micronation, a free state complete with its own set of ethical guiding principles and values.

Moreover, the Psychedelic Press UK is teaming up with the Ecology, Cosmos & Consciousness lecture series to put on The Psychic Lysurgery:

The Psychic Lysurgery is proud to be materializing at Sunrise 2013 with some lyrical majesty and thoughtful escapades within the weird and wonderful world we live in. Thematically entwined through psychedelics and consciousness, the talks taking place in The Psychic Lysurgery are about lifting the curtains of where we’ve been, where we’re at, and where we are heading post 2012.

Whipped into being by David Luke, organiser of the Ecology, Cosmos and Consciousness lecture series, and Rob Dickins, editor of the Psychedelic Press UK,  the rhizomatic array of talks will keep minds whirring in wonder for times to come. Some of the speakers already booked include renowned writer Graham Hancock, MDMA specialist Dr. Ben Sessa, LSD historian Andy Roberts and parapsychologist Dr. Serena Roney-Dougal. With morning yoga every day and magic from Ferdinando Buscema, as well as poetry and music, come and join The Psychic Lysurgery, feed your head and crack open the other realms of your consciousness.
