the music is "Don't you worry" by The Beloved

EntheoGenisis Australia Conference 2006 - Experimental Shamanic Trance Dance, Sacred Plant and Sound System Workshop

The organizers and speakers at EGA believe that information about psychoactive plants and chemicals should be readily available. Also that only through creating such a space, where we can talk freely on such matters, can methods for harm reduction and the true benefits of such substance be explored. Entheogenesis Australis is a collection of thinkers from all walks of life, we come together to share knowledge about sacred plants, chemical alchemy and states of consciousness. We are coming to tune in to the Mother Earth and take her fight back out into the world. We want to share and explore experiences, trance and dance. it is about growth, for the mind and the land.

This experimental workshop is an invitation to those individuals who are interested in the trance dance experience as providing an opportunity for mind/body/spirit/soul development. EGA 2006 will be a unique opportunity for people who are experienced in the dance floor and consciousness development approach to try something new, different, fun and well focused, that is totally aimed at extending the boundaries of each participants current experiential and knowledge paradigms.

Otherfilm sees 'cinema' differently, as something that's open to
re-imagining; crying out to be liberated from industrialised models,
and predetermined structures and experiences. This year's festival
features performances that expand traditional notions of 'cinema',
installations that elaborate on the idea of 'the screen' and workshops
that introduce participants to ideas of acoustic ecology, as well as
shooting, processing, editing and projecting super8 film. Of course,
we've also included fantastic screenings program featuring new film
work and retrospective selections.

In celebration of Australia's contribution to expanded cinema's
international history Otherfilm are delighted to welcome Arthur and
Corinne Cantrill, pioneering film artists and authors of the
long-running avant-garde film journal, Cantrills' Filmnotes. Arthur
and Corinne will perform a selection of expanded cinema pieces
involving voice and body movement, sculptural objects, specially
crafted screens and avant-garde film. The Cantrills' have also curated
a screening program of their own films, a retrospective tracing the

prepared homemade instruments to gnaw at the edges of perception with
