The Visionary Summit is a convergence of spiritual seekers, thinkers, and dreamers set on the beautiful Western Slope of the Rocky Mountains, Colorado. Join us at the foot of Mount Lamborn, a sacred mountain of the Ute Indians for a 2-day celebration of Chit (The Sanskrit word for consciousness), with workshops and talks by prominent teachers, shamanic guided journeys, meditations, yoga, movement, collaborative public art, and captivating live music.
Immerse yourself in the nourishing community of Paonia, as you learn, expand, connect, dream, create and play.
We gather in the spirit of Terrence Mckenna, an American who dedicated his life to studying shamanism and the impact of psychotropic flora on human culture and evolution. A renowned ethnobotanist, mystic, psychonaut, lecturer and author who believed in a vision of human paradise.
You can stand back and look at this planet and see that we have the money, the power, the medical understanding, the scientific know-how, the love, and the community to produce a kind of human paradise. - Terrence Mckenna, 1946-2000.
Both Terence and his brother Dennis McKenna grew up in the place of our convergence, Paonia Colorado. Dennis is this years Visionary Summit Guest of Honor, author, ethnopharmacologist, research pharmologist, and lecturer, who will share stories and insights into his and Terences life, address transcendent questions and paint a portrait of the counterculture from the sixties through eighties....
