East Forest never thought he would livestream a ceremony. Yet due to the pandemic's restrictions on gatherings, and to offer support to the frontline healthcare workers in his community, he responded by taking his psychedelic oriented ceremony-concerts online. He gifted a total of five virtual ceremony-concerts and opened them for anyone around the world to attend. From his studio in Boise, ID, he improvised songs in his signature sound; a sound that artfully acts as a digital musical facilitator to guide a psychedelic journey. Out of the five events, and with the generous guidance of CashApp Studios, he curated a new, two-hour album titled "IN: A Soundtrack For The Psychedelic Practitioner, vol. II." This new work follows the seminal album "Music For Mushrooms: A Soundtrack For The Psychedelic Practitioner." Music is a central element for guiding a psychedelic journey. East Forest has dedicated the last thirteen years to developing his own musical protocol to safely and powerfully accompany a therapeutic psychedelic experience explicitly for Western minds and ears. The "IN" album is designed for inner work, that can be led by a therapist, sitter, guide, or for an open mind and heart that is willing to listen.
