April 18-19, 2013 -- On our California tour, we stopped in San Francisco to host our annual Bicycle Day Celebration. While in the Bay Area, we joined the MAPS conference in Oakland to lead a Body and Soul Drawing Ritual, an experiential happening that includes vision practices, music plus yogis and yoginis to inspire our drawings.

San Francisco, April 19th -- Thousands joined in CoSM's fourth annual celebration of Bicycle Day. It was the 70th anniversary of the day Dr. Albert Hoffman took his famous bicycle ride after being the first to ingest his original chemical formula, LSD-25, the most powerful psychoactive substance ever formulated. For this special occasion, the freshly printed 3D-modeled Entheon DJ booth was unveiled. Musical artists Kaminanda, Bluetech, Random Rab, and Shpongle launched the remarkable sculptural stage set. On the venue's top floor, a sensational exhibit of visionary art was on view, organized by in the Tribe13 gallery. Music, dancing, fashion, and creative decor combined to create a rare and extraordinary atmosphere for Bicycle Day 2013.
