Along with championing World Peace and Environmental Sustainablity, the
Fifth Annual Beat Museum Poetry Festival will spotlight two time-honored,
although often neglected and/or overlooked harbingers of change, namely,
Spirituality and Psychedelics. At the very heart of the Beat experience is
the Way, the Path and the Road of Beat Spirituality. There could have been
no Beat experience as it was known without its heartfelt and desperate
Spiritual Quest. Join us Saturday as we celebrate Beat Spirituality! On
Sunday, augmenting our superstar poets, we will feature multimedia
performances with a psychedelic theme or influence--mind-expanding music,
sounds, and lights! Join us Sunday as we celebrate Psychedelia! And join
us for Poetry, on both Saturday and Sunday, that aspires to catalyze and
manifest a better world for the common good of all God’s children!
