The Kaleidoscope Vault: An Experiential Benefit Celebration

Charles Shaw

Join MAPS for The Kaleidoscope Vault, an experiential benefit celebration that will delight your senses. Purchase artworks from the world’s preeminent visionary artists, rare collectibles from the history of psychedelic science, and priceless travel packages and experiences—all while enjoying a unique and stimulating series of intimate encounters and interactive adventures with artists, thinkers, and activists.

Guests of The Kaleidoscope Vault will be treated to a multitude of sensory indulgences, including themed food stations, full-service bar, music, and interactive displays and exhibits, including meet-the-artist stations hosted by visionary painters and digital and organic mural-makers. Enjoy a ceremonial cup of tea, and participate in the Treasure Hunt Adventure to increase your chances of winning a prize from our $2500 raffle.

The evening’s journey continues as luminaries from the psychedelic past, present, and future share their hearts and minds and discuss MAPS’ work at the frontiers of psychedelic science. Presentations by Rick Doblin, Ph.D., Alex & Allyson Grey (Chapel of the Sacred Mirrors), Charles Shaw (FractalNation Village, The Exile Nation Project), Android Jones & Phaedra Ana (Phadroid), Daniel Pinchbeck (Evolver, Reality Sandwich), Paul Stamets (Mycologist, 6 Ways Mushrooms Can Save the World), Neal Goldsmith, Ph.D (Author: “Psychedelic Healing”), Ethan Nadelman (Executive Director, Drug Policy Alliance), and many others.

After the presentations the performance auctioneer extraordinaire Elias Arjan takes to the stage to conduct an entertaining auction unlike any you have ever attended, where your enjoyment of the moment is enhanced by the opportunity to buy visionary art, travel packages, and unique gifts. Elias will be accompanied by The Shamanic Cheerleaders—a performance troupe guaranteed to elevate spirits and open minds. Come discover a treasure you’ll cherish for a lifetime, an emblem of psychedelic history, or a once-in-a-lifetime experience not generally available to the public. Your participation in this event will fund research into the beneficial applications of MDMA, LSD, ayahuasca, ibogaine, and medical marijuana.

The evening will come to a close with a memorial celebrating the late Robert Venosa, hosted by Martina Hoffmann with accompaniment from Charles Shaw. The memorial will feature a special tribute video on Robert’s life from Jonathan Singer, a Venosa-inspired Phadroid digital dance performance by Android Jones & Phaedrana, and will close with musical performances by Random Rab and David Block (The Human Experience).
