Dates, Times and Prices


This provocative and life affirming one-man show invites you to the core of spiritual and scientific debate, to experience a journey of life, death and transcendence. Are we individuals or all connected? What is spiritual enlightenment? Urgent questions like these are joyfully explored with impassioned arguments in a whistle-stop tour of Eastern philosophy, shamanism, quantum mechanics, sleep science, meditation and more. These breathtaking subjects are brought to life, dismantling our ingrained common sense assumptions on a search for meaning and truth, to reveal tantalising alternative ways of loving, feeling and thinking.
