Return with Elixir Sound Journey | Dr. Miles Neale and Phil Jacobs

Dr. Miles Neale | Phil Jacobs



Tuesday, July 25


$30 | In Person

We will all die, and we will all be reborn, the life cycle can be haphazardly driven by blindness
and fear, or consciously guided by clarity and altruism. An experiential companion to Dr. Miles
Nealeā€™s forthcoming book Return with Elixir, join us for the Elixir sound journey mastering the
death process, entering into the sublime liminality of self-transformation, and rehearsing rebirth
as an altruistic avatar to shape-shift the planet. What we envision and embody we can become.
Sound master Phil Jacobs uses voice and crystal bowls to stimulate brain integration and an
altered state of consciousness, while Miles soul sculpts through visual imagery, mythopoetics,
and mantra based on the Tibetan Book of the Dead, Joseph Campbellā€™s heroic journey, and Carl
Jungā€™s shadow-work. At a time when our modern civilization is entering its own death-rebirth
process, the Elixir offers a psychedelic journey without substances to catapult our collective

*We invite in-person guests to bring a yoga mat if theyā€™d like to lay supine during the journey.*
