Hopefully the title of my post is self explanatory. I'm going to be hard pressed to just make the 7kg carry-on limit (I bought extra allowance just in case, never been able to 'pack light') let alone bringing food and such to EGA. I'd be really grateful to hear from anyone that is familiar with the area (EGA people I'm sure can help.) A fellow SAB buddie mentioned buses from the conference site into Eildon? That would be great! I know it's just a three (four) day conference but I have never managed the art of ''packing light'' - what if I wanted those shoes to match those jeans? Hahahaha, silly me dumbass girlie shit. Yes, I've had a 'few' glasses of wine, I was so tremendously overwhelmed earlier this afternoon I couldn't settle myself the fuck down. And I'll probably see this post tomorrow and cringe hard - hoping fellow SAB'ers can relate. I hope everyone is having a wonderful Friday night!
RonnySimulacrum posted a topic in Chill SpaceHey SAB alumni There been a lot of rumors about the future and the next not-for-profit Entheogenesis Australis (EGA) psychedelic symposium (conference/gathering) and I was hoping to answer some of those questions with this post, and additionally ask a question of all of you at the same time. The purpose of this post was to confirm that the next EGA conference will take place on the 8-11 of December 2017. It will be announced officially in the coming weeks and we would love your support getting the word out there amongst the community. It will be on an altogether new site with a slightly different set up and idea than any that has taken place before. The main conference space will be outdoors and there will be camping on site. The event will cover a diverse range of fields from the botanical, academic, and philosophical, to arts and drug law reform. The event is going to be a hybrid between the classic outdoor and the more academic indoor events with the site having one indoor lecture space so we can display PowerPoint presentations throughout the day during lectures. The new location is stunning and situated 2 hours drive from Melbourne CBD and airport. So place a hold in your diary’s now and please start spreading the word around the plant head community. Now to my main question. We are working over the initial headliner invitations and I was hoping to get input from SAB crew for a choice of headliner nominees. If you have a suggestion for an international headliner speaker you would like us to consider please let us know now so I can shortlist them at our programming meetings in the coming weeks. We will be opening up applications for speaker submission at the start of next year where anyone can apply for a place on the program; we get hundreds of applications for this but feel free to also throw down some local names down but identify them as local please. So for the most part here I am really just asking who you would love to see in oz for the coming EGA from overseas as this take a lot of early orginizing. Its best to not nominate anyone over 65 as they simply do not like traveling. If people could also add a web page or link to people work, that would be helpful for us. Hey we can only ask and try right ;-) If your reading this post and think what the hell is EGA? Well EGA is a not-for-profit association that exists to create a supportive environment to foster mature, open discussion about psychoactive plants and chemical. Cheek out our web page and YouTube channel or FB page to answer that question further: http://www.entheogenesis.org https://www.youtube.com/entheotv http://facebook.com/EGA.plant.org The SAB community was the birthplace of EGA and we are proud of that and just how strong the entheogethic and psychedelic community has become in Australia. Please feel free to suggest who you would most like to see down under and on the program and we will try and approach the lead contender/s and see if we can make it happen. Fill free to add a line here also about why you like or support EGA as it might help newbies better understand the event/gathering. As always thanks for your support over the last 12+ years everyone.
