About this project

WHO IS MARTIN BALL?

In the spring of 2009 Martin Ball, a Ph.D. professor of religious studies in Ashland Oregon, underwent a profound energetic opening and transformation which was the product of intensive work with entheogenic medicines (also known as psychedelics and/or hallucinogens) and a year of profound self-exploration. From his experiences he developed a program he calls "radical nonduality" wherein using the research medicine 5-MeO-DMT he believes one can come to the realization that "God" is everything and everyone - we are all united and are all extensions of the energy that flows all around us.  There is no "other" and thus his approach is thoroughly practical, straight-forward, and free of metaphysics, speculation, and attachment to any (at times opposing) spiritual or religious ideologies and mythologies. The result is a view of the nature of reality and the self that is challenging, liberating, and powerfully transformative, pointing to the true nature of being and personal responsibility as an energetic being.

WHAT IS THE DOCUMENTARY ABOUT?

Travel with us as we document the experiences of five intrepid participants as they undergo an incredible 5-MeO-DMT session with Martin! Unlike any other practitioner in the world, Martin actually takes this powerful medicine with each client in a one-on-one setting, and then works with the individual to unlock trapped energies and provide energetic guidance. Participants often speak of having the governing reins of their ego temporarily loosened and the reception of a sense of infinite, universal, love, unity and delight - and we will document Martin's process of working with his clients to aid them in achieving their desired outcomes. Brad Adams, Ph.D., cancer researcher and founder of L.A.M.P.S. (Los Angeles Medical Plant Society), will be on hand to study session results from a scientific perspective - charting participant responses and any emotional and physical changes they may experience. Watch the video to learn more about integration!

5-MeO-DMT is an incredibly-powerful compound and, for some individuals, the sessions (and/or the participants' return to "normal") can sometimes be quite dramatic. In recognition of this, we will also document the work of vital INTEGRATION SPECIALISTS who help entheogen users adapt to and work with the strong information and impressions they have received. We will also document current scientific research efforts using 5-MeO-DMT and the incredible potential this and other entheogens hold for the betterment of mankind in general. If we are truly all ONE, then what the hell is there to fight about? Please help us document and responsibly spread the word about this incredible medicine!

Weekend Warrior – Party Recovery Supplement

The most complete party recovery supplement on the market, Weekend Warrior is the perfect antidote for a night of “bad” decisions.

Weekend Warrior is here to help your brain and body recover after being pushed to the limits. It is sure to keep you feeling energized, sharp and happy even when the weekend is over.

Stay Mindfull Essentials Kit

The New Mindfulness Company has just launched, and is offering this very special chance to receive their "Mindfulness Essentials" for your daily practice.

Risks and challenges

If we do not reach our goal, we will not be able to create this important and necessary documentary! Please help spread the word and assist in the creation of a landmark film about revolutionary entheogenic practices!

PLEASE NOTE - Documenting Martin's session work will be part of the puzzle. 5-MeO-DMT is such a powerful medicine that after exposure some people encounter psychological and/or emotion challenges. Our film will detail the work of "integration specialists" who help medicine users deal with any such issues.

Additionally, we will also be stressing that 5-MeO-DMT is NOT a first step or beginners option for those who feel called to the world of entheogens. Access points to legal, available entheogenic options, as well as information on how one might best begin a journey into this new world will also be discussed.

And finally, we will be interviewing and presenting top research scientists so that everyone can understand more about the potential and current scientific and medical status of this amazing compound.

Including all of these elements will demand as much funding as we can possibly raise in order for us to present a well rounded, extremely informative and visually stimulating documentary!

    Crystal Bed (1-hr)

    John of God Crystal Bed, only (1-hour)...

    The concept of the Crystal Bed, also called crystal bath therapy, was channeled through John of God by the spiritual healing Doctors. It was developed for practical use and incorporated as an important healing modality at the spiritual healing center affectionately known as "the Casa Dom Inacio in Brazil." For visitors to the Casa, the Crystal Healing Beds are available to all and are prescribed by the Entities (Healing Spirit Guides) of the Casa for rejuvenation, alignment and balancing of our energy fields, which in turn aids in the process of spiritual and physical healing. When you walk before John of God during his "incorporation" by the Spirit Doctors (in Brazil commonly called Entities) for a healing, he prescribes: the day and morning or afternoon for an invisible spiritual surgery, sitting in the Current Room, taking Herbs, receiving a Crystal Healing Bath, and/or receiving a cleansing under the sacred waterfall. A physical spiritual surgery on stage must be personally requested and is only sought by approximately 1 of 400 to 500 visitors to the Casa (Located in Laguna Beach, Ca.)
