Posted in .

These MP3s of a double CD set that includes a spoken word CD with music (the reading of The Psychedelic Prayers) and an instrumental-only version.

The Tao Te Ching, meaning “way” and “virtue,” is an ancient Chinese text, believed dated from the 6th century B.C. The great sage, Lao Tse, originally inscribed it. The Tao Te Ching’s wisdom was intended to be translated throughout the ages.

Dr. Timothy Leary, former psychology professor at Harvard University, spent time with the many-times translated text, and in response allowed poetry to emerge, leading to his book The Psychedelic Prayers. During a trip to India in 1965, Timothy collaborated with another former Harvard Professor, Ralph Metzner, Ph.D. who further distilled this timeless tool to help psychedelic explorers and other seekers to have a safe and evolutionary journey. Their goal was to create a safe “set” and “setting,” considered helpful for a positive experience.

The Psychedelic Prayers were originally published in 1966.

In the early 1970’s Brigitte Mars was living in Canada with Timothy and a group which collaborated on a project to produce an updated version of The Psychedelic Prayers. Nearly forty years later, teaming up with Kimba Arem ( as sacred sound musician, engineer and producer, Brigitte reads the prayers, making this production finally available as an audio experience.

The intention of this offering of transcendent poetry and sacred sounds is to provide a healing experience to guide your way home.

Blessed be.

Listening suggestions: This album is intended to be listened to in its’ entirety, from the opening Ho’o’pono’pono blessing prayer to the final meditation. It is exactly 64 minutes long, reflecting the 64 hexagrams in the I Ching. It can be played alone (headphones is recommended), or with a group, in an open and healing atmosphere. Allow your mind and body to relax and receive these ancient teachings on a cellular level. They are intended to help Spirit ground more fully into the physical body, bringing increased health, balance, clarity, and equanimity.

May your journeys be peaceful, healing, and bring you to a place of deep love and happiness.
