An ongoing event for almost 2 years, the Entheocentric Salon - a series of monthly events at CoSM (Alex Grey’s Chapel of the Sacred Mirrors) comes to SF to rally local communities around Visionary Culture. Inspired by the Seventeenth Century French art salons, we incorporated discussion, dance performance and multiple live painters into an all night electronic music party model. Starting the evening with a visionary lecture, gives the events depth with the creative energy from all the artists, sending a wave of cultural satisfaction throughout the party.
The first west coast Entheocentric Salon, the beginning of our new monthly series, hosts Alex and Allyson Grey for a Lecture on AnthropoCoSM: “It is through a human lens that we understand our world. Alex Grey has developed unique yet universal symbolism that points to a realm of infinitely interconnected beings. Grey will review the history of AnthropoCoSMic sacred art and architecture and share his most recent visions of CoSM, the Chapel of the Sacred Mirrors. Intending to have a comfortable environment we are limiting the ] Later, at Temple, we will move the event into a very special club environment - decorated with ancient statues, a temple built using the latest technologies to create an eco-conscious venue – Temple SF is changing the club standard. Alex and Allyson Grey will be painting live, while artists of different genres, performers and other visual talents will be performing through the 3 rooms of the club.

Eye Gazing Party - West Coast Debut Tuesday, October 16, 7:00 PM
The Tantric Temple (Potrero Hill, SF)
For single women and men in their 20s and 30s $10
"New York's hottest dating trend" --Elle Magazine
Michael Ellsberg and Destin Gerek invite you to the West Coast debut
of Eye Gazing Parties. These parties have been happening all over the
world, and now they are coming to San Francisco!
The eyes are the window into the soul, so it's a lot easier to have a mesmerizing conversation with someone new after you've spent two minutes looking into his or her eyes. That is the simple idea behind Eye Gazing Parties. Banal chit-chat about employment status, the location of your apartment, or where you're from is not a great way
to spark a captivating connection with an alluring new person. Eye contact is.
Here's how it works: An even number of singles meet in an attractive space over drinks and world beats. After a fun mini-lesson in the art of eye contact, the group splits into pairs, and each pair spends two minutes looking into each other's eyes, no talking, with inviting beats in the background. The pairs switch up every two minutes, for a total of around half an hour. Then there is a party afterwards, with drinks flowing and luscious beats vibing. The eye gazing has an electrifying effect on the party; simply put, two minutes of eye contact is the Cadillac of ice-breakers. Come try out the exciting new way to meet single souls!
Eye Gazing Parties were founded by Michael Ellsberg in NYC in 2005, and have been covered by the New York Times, CNN, Good Morning America, and major media around the world. People who attend them report having profound experiences with many new and exciting people at each event.
The party is co-hosted by Destin Gerek ( )
and is held in the stunning Tantric Temple ( ),
founded and run by the incomparable Bast ( ), who will also be there.
If you would like to attend, please RSVP to Michael at press2007 [at] (no need to follow the invite instructions on the Eye Gazing Parties website). He will send you the address. Please only RSVP if you are set on attending, as the success of these parties depends on maintaining an even balance between men and women, and cancellations or no-shows throw this balance off.
Feel free to invite your friends--have them RSVP directly to Michael (press2007 [at]
and have them mention your name. Thank you! Michael and Destin

October 18: Crónicas (Part of our monthly Movies en Español series)
Oscillating between furor and languor, rage and repose, Crónicas mixes ethnography with media critique, questioning the nature of truth in reportage, the media's power to effect (and affect) that truth, and the queasy complicity and mutual fascination between interviewer and subject. Inspired by a gruesome real-life trio of South American serial killers (among them Luis Alfredo Garavito, who shocked Colombia with the murders of about 140 children), Crónicas follows Miami tabloid TV correspondent Manolo Bonilla (John Leguizamo) and his crew (Leonor Watling and José Mar Yazpik) as they report on one such killer in Babahoyo, Ecuador, failing Journalistic Ethics 101 in the process. The film is aided a strong sense of place; sorrow's descent on Babahoyo feels as perpetual and all-consuming as the torrents of rain that drench the region, and the town itself—much of it suspended over water on ramshackle bamboo bridges—threatens to collapse from its own psychological detritus.

Ireland, 1920. Damien and Teddy are brothers. But while the latter is already the leader of a guerrilla squad fighting for the independence of his motherland, Damien, a medical graduate of University College, would rather further his training at the London hospital where he has found a place. However, shortly before his departure, he happens to witness atrocities committed by the ferocious Black and Tans and finally decides to join the resistance group led by Teddy. The two brothers fight side by side until a truce is signed. But peace is short-lived and when one faction of the freedom-fighters accepts a treaty with the British that is regarded as unfair by the other faction, a civil war ensues, pitting Irishmen against Irishmen, brothers against brothers, Teddy against Damien...

I sure would like to see the ride group together and remain a mass,
thereby minimizing impact on traffic and pissing off fewer motorists.
I would like them to block cross traffic JUST at the intersection ahead of the mass;
NOT 3 intersections ahead.
We could make room for cars to make right turns at corked intersections.
I think we should be visible and fun, and not upset or inconvenience people.

Mark your calendars. Jan L. showed this movie to a number of us back in June. It is excellent!

Aspartame Toxicity Center,

Please foster Kittens for you local SPCA.
Help raise kittens until they are 8 weeks old or 2 lbs and can be put up for adoption.
It is important that they have humans for socialization and play! (lucky you)
this is the sweetest and most fun way to bring extra love into your life,
and into the kittens' lives. This program is FREE:
You attend their kitten foster program so you know how...
And then when they have a litter of kittens for you,
they send you home with kittens and all the cat food you need.
