7-10pm ET

$38 | In Person


Take a trip with Psychedelic Sangha into the bardo for an eyes-wide-open death meditation by Doc Kelley, into 60+ minutes of numinous soundscapes Chris Dingman (vibraphone), with surreal dharma art visuals created by Yosuh Jones and Aubrey Nehring. 

Find a comfortable position, relax, and prepare to experience the bardo as described in the Tibetan Book of Dead and later adapted for psychedelic trip sessions by Drs. Timothy Leary, Ralph Metzner, and Richard Alpert. 

After the jam, we’ll convene a sharing circle to support a safe and open conversation about death and dying. We are honored to have death doula Megan McCormick, our special guest, facilitating the circle.  

A limited supply of house mats will be available. Please be sure to bring your mat, pillow, and blanket. As well as any offerings of the senses for the altar (i.e., food, incense, candles, flowers).

Death Doula  


NYC-based vibraphonist and composer Chris Dingman is known for his distinctive approach to the instrument: sonically rich and conceptually expansive. In his captivating solo performances, he casts an enveloping atmosphere, creating layers of simultaneous sound on the vibraphone.
Chris has worked with legendary artists Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter, and many of today’s jazz, creative, and world music luminaries. He brings together this background with a host of influences from around the world, in service of taking listeners on a journey to a transcendent place.
While working in NYC since 2002, Chris documented his solo improvisations privately for many years, until his world changed. When his father entered hospice care in 2018, he created the 5-hour extended album Peace. This led to an ongoing evolution of his solo music and his critically acclaimed albums Journeys Vol. 1 and Vol. 2.
Chris is actively touring and has performed around the world. He has been profiled by NPR, the New York Times, AMNY, and many other publications, and has received fellowships and grants from Chamber Music America, New Music USA, South Arts, and the Thelonious Monk Institute.
