Lightning in a Bottle and The Lucent Temple of Consciousness


This summer the Peace and Loveism staff (sister organization of SHIFT>) will be immersing itself and documenting the wonderful Lucent Temple of Consciousness at Lightning in a Bottle! We are incredibly excited to share our experiences of this transcendental and transformational element of Lightning in a Bottle. We’ll be highlighting some amazing speakers, workshops, and meditations so stay tuned for our coverage next month!

The LIB Lucent Temple of Consciousness is a place to expand your mind and explore science, playfulness, and the inner and outer reaches of spirituality. Come bend and twist your body and hear the sounds of sweet harmonizing instruments calling us to rise up.

1 Giant Mind Meditation & The Earth Harp

The 1 Giant Mind Mission

To reduce the impact of the global stress epidemic and its effects on health and wellbeing, society and culture, the workplace, economy and the world at large through:

  • promoting the practice and benefits of meditation
  • teaching as many people as possible how to meditate
  • advancing scientific research into the practice of individual and collective meditation
  • motivating 100 million people worldwide to regularly practice meditation by 2020.
The Experiment
On Sunday, July 14, 2013, in partnership with Dr. Paul Zak, Director of the Centre of Neuroeconomics Studies at Claremont Graduate University in California, 1 Giant Mind and The Do LaB will be conducting a world first study on brain-chemistry produced during mass meditation experiences at The Lightning in Bottle Festival.
The study involves a series of blood draws before and after a mass meditation experience to be held on the 21st of July at the main stage. They will then test this blood for the amount of oxytocin, seratonin and dopamine released to determine what the neurological impacts are when large groups of people meditate together.
Dr. Zak (aka Dr. Love) Professor of Economics and Department Chair, as well as the founding Director of the Center for Neuroeconomics Studies at Claremont Graduate University. Dr. Zak also serves as Professor of Neurology at Loma Linda University Medical Center, and is a Senior Researcher at UCLA. Dr. Zak specialises in monitoring Oxytocin levels. Oxytocin is the chemical of morality, empathy and love.
