Ego Death, Shadow Work & Fatherhood
Life is a Festival Podcast 012:
Android Jones is one of the most successful artists in the visionary or psychedelic realm. From live digital painting on tour with Bassnectar to his immersive dome Samskara and the virtual reality experience Microdose VR, Android is constantly pushing the envelope.
On the podcast we discuss ego death and the chemical rocket ships we use to get there. We talk about integrating our shadows and how that relates to an image maker’s use of light and dark. Most of all we discuss fatherhood. Android and his wife Martha are parents of two delightful children, Esher and Nova. Android has one major piece of advice for people in the festival world: having a family isn’t what you do then the fun’s over, in fact it’s the main event.
If life is a festival, family is the headliner.
