On Sunday, January 24th, CAConrad will visit The California College of the Arts in San Francisco by way of astral poetry travel.
Poets David Buuck and Jen Benka will be in front of the college at a table with crystal infused water (Fiji has one of the highest silica infusions on our planet) from 1:30pm to 3:00pm Pacific Time. Passersby will drink the water and TUNE IN as David and Jen bring CAConrad in via astral transmission, as he meditates on the same source of crystal infused water in his little apartment in Philadelphia.
Poets will record sensations and messages from either end of the cosmic correspondence.
If you're in the San Francisco Bay Area, or know anyone in the Bay Area who would be interested in participating, get yourselves to
