Chase, Larry, and Jason Present: The Personal Introspection and Doin' Drugs Retreat

Sat, Jun 15 @ 11PM

Deep in the virginal forests of Peru, or, more accurately, slightly into Brooklyn just off the second busiest L train stop in the commercial center of the United States, there will be the deepest, most important connection one can have with the known world: a really fun adults-only retreat with mostly strangers!

Come see Shamans-In-Residence/Brooklyn Comedians Chase Montavon, Larry Sass-Ainsworth and Jason Weitzman get you to understand the most important facets of yourself: who you are (the "Me"), who you are as a person (the "Myself") and who are You "the "I"). You will learn truths about yourself and maybe in like the next life you will get to be something cool like a fish or a BKX rider. And the ways to obtain this level of self-knowingness are easy: taking incapacitatingly strong illegal drugs. 

Namaste you there!
