For the past nine years, The Do LaB has shattered all conceptions of the modern gathering, producing the most innovative and inspiring events on the international circuit. Lightning in a Bottle is a fusion of electronic music and introspective qualities of installation art, live performance, spiritual workshops, and an overarching embodiment of cultural and environmental consciousness. Through this focus on unique creativity, Lightning in a Bottle is its own class of gathering. 

Much of Lightning in a Bottle’s intimate singularity is expressed through The Lucent Temple of Consciousness, an amazing sanctuary for all participants to enrich the soul and inspire the spirit. The 2014 schedule inside the Lucent Temple, built out of recycled and found objects, will include over 300 different experiences in yoga, workshops, speakers and exotic world music.

1 Giant Mind Meditation & The Earth Harp

The 1 Giant Mind Mission

To reduce the impact of the global stress epidemic and its effects on health and wellbeing, society and culture, the workplace, economy and the world at large through:

  • promoting the practice and benefits of meditation
  • teaching as many people as possible how to meditate
  • advancing scientific research into the practice of individual and collective meditation
  • motivating 100 million people worldwide to regularly practice meditation by 2020.
The Experiment
On Sunday, July 14, 2013, in partnership with Dr. Paul Zak, Director of the Centre of Neuroeconomics Studies at Claremont Graduate University in California, 1 Giant Mind and The Do LaB will be conducting a world first study on brain-chemistry produced during mass meditation experiences at The Lightning in Bottle Festival.
The study involves a series of blood draws before and after a mass meditation experience to be held on the 21st of July at the main stage. They will then test this blood for the amount of oxytocin, seratonin and dopamine released to determine what the neurological impacts are when large groups of people meditate together.
Dr. Zak (aka Dr. Love) Professor of Economics and Department Chair, as well as the founding Director of the Center for Neuroeconomics Studies at Claremont Graduate University. Dr. Zak also serves as Professor of Neurology at Loma Linda University Medical Center, and is a Senior Researcher at UCLA. Dr. Zak specialises in monitoring Oxytocin levels. Oxytocin is the chemical of morality, empathy and love.

A Path to Enlightening Self-Realized Understanding

Before one goes through the gate

One may not be aware there is a gate

One may think there is a gate to go through and look a long time for it without finding it

One may find it and it may not open

If it opens one may go through it

As one goes through it one sees the gate one went through was the Self that went through it

No one went through a gate

There was no gate to go through

No one ever found a gate

No one ever realized there was never a gate

Even so, the perception that there is no gate is a subjective perception

There is no way of knowing except to go through it

If we want to see peace on earth…

If we want there to be peace in the world, we have to be brave enough to soften what is rigid in our hearts, to find the soft spot and stay with it. We have to have that kind of courage and take that kind of responsibility. That’s the true practice of peace.

Pema Chödrön, Practicing Peace in Times of War
