You're invited to the Beyond Azara book and CD release party with Ashland-based author and musician, Martin Ball.
I've just released my latest novel, Beyond Azara - A Universal Love Story - a profound tale of personal awakening, transformation, and love that is psychedelic, sexy, and sublime. I'll be reading selections from the novel as well as discussing its central themes of nondualism and unitary consciousness, entheogenic experience, and sensuality.
In addition to the book, I'll be sharing music from my latest CD of electroacoustic world fusion music, APEXERAL.
Schedule is as follows:
7-7:30 - Music and dancing
7:30-8:30 - Reading and Discussion
8:30-9 - More music and dancing
Tuesday, July 31st at Oasis Healing Arts Sanctuary in Ashland.
About the author: Martin first came to Ashland in late 2007 at the beginning of what would prove to be a profound process of personal transformation and awakening that culminated in the Spring of 2009. Since then, he has been writing, lecturing, teaching, and sharing the fruits of his experience and the profound insights derived from the process. In many ways, Beyond Azara is a fictionalized account of what Martin experienced and what he learned and is his first novel since his Tales of Aurduin fantasy series, written in the early 2000s. In addition to his fiction, Martin is the author of numerous books on entheogens and consciousness, including the new ebook, All Is One: Understanding Entheogens and Nonduality, and Being Human: An Entheological Guide to God, Evolution, and the Fractal, Energetic Nature of Reality.
Not only is Martin a prolific writers, he is also a prolific musician and recording artist, as well. His instrumental music blends genres and styles into an electroacoustic mix with guitar, mandolin, Native American flutes, didjeridu, percussion, and electronic instrumentation and beats and sampled orchestral instruments.
Martin's music is available on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Martin-Ball-Psychedelic-Music
Beyond Azara - A Universal Love Story is now available in paperback and digital ebook at Amazon and other online retailers as well as locally at Love Revolution, Bloomsbury Books, and Sound Peace in Ashland. Copies will be available for purchase at this event at Oasis.
